choosing love and happiness

Recently I was selected to join a group called The Sunshine Club. It is a space dedicated to positivity, self-love and equality, despite what challenges the universe may throw us. As silly as it may seem, I love taking the time to look for the good in things (or, as Pollyanna calls it, The Glad Game), for taking selfies and appreciating my friends and my beauty, and just for sharing a bit more love in the world.

This group was initiated by the lovely Prim, a teenager from the Philippines with a dazzling smile and a penchant for dogs and other soft, cute things. Although the group is only just starting, ¬†everyone’s positivity and love for each other and the world is so present and overwhelmingly inspiring.

I feel like we can move mountains.

Sometimes, you just gotta have cake. But there are some days when you don’t feel up for eating a whole cake, a la Bruce Bogtrotter from Matilda, and on those days, you need a mug cake. This is the fudgiest, gooiest, most scrumptious cake I’ve ever had, and would love to share it with you.

  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 row of Sweet Williams original chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp Nesquik (or equivalent chocolate powder)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp soy milk
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1.5 tbsp peanut butter

In a medium-large mug, mix together the dry ingredients, ensuring no clumps of flour.

Add in the chocolate pieces.

Mix in the wet ingredients (leave canola oil for last). Mix in 1 tbsp peanut butter.

Dollop 1/2 tbsp peanut butter on top.

Microwave on high for approximately 1 minute (less if you want extra gooey).

Devour the deliciousness!!!!
