Good Matcha Morning

Personal, Art Living & DecorGuilty Hyena4 Comments

Have a cuppa tea - my ultimate comfort drink! I don't drink caffeine so my go-to in the morning, noon & night is some herbal tea and mostly, Matcha green tea, as it doesn't provide any caffeine jitters. I try to enjoy it sip by sip rather than gulp by gulp, but like a plonker I have a habit of letting it go cold!

The first cup always moistens my lips and throat and doesn't hurt the Matcha green tea above is from Kiss me organics via AmazonI do prefer this powder form rather than the tea bags I used to have eons ago, coutesy of brandbacker. 

I saw some green tea waffle's and I got to bake me some! - First I'm going to drink it in it's purest form freshly brewed with water.     


My first post this 2015, and gracious sakes it's been loooong overdue, I hope to post more on a regular basis and here's hoping for a more health-giving 2015. 

I missed the blogosphere, my last post was in August 2014, and I hope I don't miss the boat on the next post and become a cast away once more, adrift in a timeless perennial daydream.

Announcing the Re-Launch of The Guilty Hyena

Personal, Art Living & DecorGuilty Hyena4 Comments

Its here!

My new blog design has been finally launched! Excited to share with you a new improved 'The Guilty Hyena' it has been a long wait! I have missed blogging, but once I get a pang for change, I'm usually lead astray by my fertile harebrained impulses. 

What prompted the change ?

The platform Blogger had been good to me for many years but I felt I wanted to explore a new space where I could experiment and form new layouts and designs, something that could help reflect my ideas in a better mien. 

Welcome Old and New Readers

I havent forgotten you, even though it seems like yonks ago.

What can you expect ?

Shitloads! I'm kidding, regular postings will be a good start! 

Summer 2014 

I hope Summer 14 has been treating you well ? I was spending alot of my free time watching the World Cup and Wimbledon, a few BBQ's here and there and a few investment buys for the Summer, such as a new sewing machine, suitable for the novice that I am, I hope I put it to some good use and it doesn't just sit there gathering dust. znu3c8j2scd

Tasty Things No.7 : Wimbledon

Art Living & DecorGuilty Hyena8 Comments

For the game of lawn tennis there’s no better symbol than Wimbledon, I was super buzzed about 2013's Grand Slam and what it would entail. Note, I follow tennis all year round but it's that tad more special when it's a home slam.

It's safe to say that so far Wimbledon has been nothing short of surprises, I'm an affable supporter of Rafa Nadal, and it was a huge blow to see him out at the 1st round and along the way many top seeds have been knocked out, which personally, diminishes my excitement but nevertheless I'm rooting for Andy Murray. If you're not into the tennis malarkey? ... patisseries, finger sandwiches and strawberries, served with tea or champagne, will get you into the spirit !!
