A little throwback…

 

Screen Shot 2018-06-13 at 20.31.44A long, long time ago (well, three years, but it feels far longer than that) I ventured into the world of youtube, and I made a few cooking videos. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it, but with school and other commitments, it fell by the wayside. Somehow, I never got back into it, but who knows what I’ll get up to in the future. For now, I thought I’d share them here. They aren’t perfect by any means – the sound is a bit off, and its clear that my editing can improve a lot, but I’m still very proud of all these videos.

An Introduction to Me

catherine-profileHello there, world! Welcome to my blog, Catherine and Cranberries. I’m a nineteen-year-old from South Africa, and I’m in my first year of university at Rhodes University in Grahamstown. I have a love of cooking and baking and I really enjoy experimenting with new recipes, both healthy and not so healthy. In Grahamstown, there are lots of opportunities to be outside – we walk everywhere and go hiking, running, and exploring lots of new and exciting places. I try to fill my free time with crafts, like crocheting and journaling, with the occasional drawing session – sometimes I just watch series and whittle away my time (but we don’t like to talk about that). I’m also just getting into health and exercise, so I’ll be keeping a little running tab of my progress and how I’m working towards healthy habits while in a university environment. Come along for the ride – I’m super excited to be back on the blogging train, and in this community of people.

 

A Fresh Start

I have been wanting to start a proper blog for years – and I did, quite a few times, but it was never the right time to properly invest my time and energy. Now that I’m in university, and settling in well, I feel that now is my moment. So here I am! Welcome to Catherine and Cranberries, my favourite new space for just about anything, from food (I loooove cooking and baking) to craft, exploring my surroundings with my friends, to health and exercise.
