It is all about the face /-/ Vegan Fairy bread no bake cheese cake with sprinkle crumble


With the importance of social media ever growing and integrating itself into our lives; there is one aspect of it that I dislike a lot. I am saying dislike a lot because I feel I use hate to much but I hope you understand the loathing I feel for this. How many of you have taken a selfie? I think we all have.

 Yes even the older generation of IPhone and Ipad uses have taken selfies for their profile on Facebook. I am guilty of taking selfies too, however I have stopped. Mainly due to sheer laziness but it seems like my feed page is being bombarded with selfies. Only yesterday did I have an album pop up on my feed, that was filled with only selfies. Yes a WHOLE Album. Argh even the word Selfie is making me shutter.


I only realised the other day how many people on my friends list have more than 100 “selfies” photos, mostly of the same position and the same angle.

 You know the pointed up at 45 degrees and chin down photos with a slight tilt to the head to give the best shot.

There might be the “cute Asian shot” or the “middle finger shot” once in a while; or you can come across the “pouty lip shot and bend forward shot”. Sure the variation is good but most of them are taken with the camera face down and us looking up.

Now I am going to ask you guys honestly how many photos of yourself do you need to publish to face book? 

Do you not see yourself enough in the mirror when you get ready or have you forgotten that photos normally are taken a few meters away from you? 

Is it that you need to find the “best” shot of yourself to post to face book to show how “modelist” you are to the world?

We get it you are pretty, you are sexy, you are cute. Now post a photo of a funny cat picture and I will get on my way.

    Awesome recipe – I’m loving how you came up with this original treat using so many different points of inspiration.

    And yes, I agree re the selfie thing. No doubt because I’m a Gen Xer not a Gen Yer or whatever came next. But I just don’t get it 🙂

    I’m not a serial selfie poster person, but I have to admit I get too crazy when I’m taking pics of my food lol. I took over 150 photos for a post once just to discover I didn’t like any of them 😉
    But yours look beautiful, and so does this cake! It’s so pretty and fun, I love the sprinkles. Don’t they make everything better? 😉
    Have a nice weekend 😀

      Haha, I can so relate to that!

      I once did a instgram of 50 photos, none of them made it to the cut.

      Thank you for your lovely comment Consuelo
