Hey there Sweet toothies!
Yes, I am for the Fitfam gang but a lot of times in my life, desserts have proven to be a form of therapy for stressful times. And I am quite sure the universe agrees with me, whyelse would DESSERTS be STRESSED spelt backwards? All week, I have been itching for a time to share some of those moments when frozen delights gave me life….
Lagos sun therapy (Hans And Renee, Lagos)
Last christmas involved a lot of eating so at the begining of the year, I put my running shoes to use and decided to make icecream a special reward for when I achieve certain work out goals. I recently added more minutes to my formerly shameful run time so I had a pending reward waiting to be claimed. My reward day finally came when Lagos sun decided to toy with my emotions . All I am going to say is I was having a really really bad day & the heat was on beast mode all through. My eyes were hurting from sun rays because I could not find my battle weapon (sunglasses). I remember tiny drops of sweat trickling down my back even with the ac on then it finally hit me….guilty pleasure fix time! *big grin*
I drove straight to Hans And Renee & got myself a scoop of Cinamon special…
This was really special…came alongside a cinamon sugar donut and a waffle of my choice, I picked red velvet and had it crushed and sprinkled all over my double special cup of frozen delight. By the time I was done with this, Lagos sun couldn’t stand me!
Abaya hunt therapy (Haagen Dazs, Dubai)
My friend Steph & I had just finished hunting for abayas in Deira market (struggle) and my other friend Gideon came to get us, he must have seen the tiredness in our faces because he drove us straight to heaven….
Because I had eaten a lot of junk on this trip, I felt I had to go easy….a small cup, I also knew my palate was in no mood to be overwhelmed hence a subtle flavor…vanilla & my all time favorite topping…waffles! I appreciated the saying ‘less is more’ one more time when I was done with this cup of frozen delight….
