So if you follow me on Instagram you’ll have noticed by now I really like to document what I eat, which seems to be a lot of sweet treats or fresh fruit and yoghurt. Seeing as everyone always asks what I order and where the cafe is I thought I’d just do a whole post on my foodstagram and where you can find it. The majority are from my hometown in Terrigal. Weirdly enough I’ve had a lot of people ask if I actually eat all of this food. The answer is yes. I don’t know what kind of person would spend money on such delicious treats and not actually eat them? Like I’ve said before, I have a deadly sweet tooth and my body seems to crave large amounts of sugar. I don’t know, it’s weird like that. It’ll be a different story when my metabolism slows down as I get older but for now I’m going to make the most of it while I still can! I’m off to Shanghai tomorrow so make sure you follow me on Instagram to stay up to date with everything.
