“Fluffy Pink Dice” Homemade Marshmallows

Daniel and I are huge marshmallow fans. Whilst we usually go for everyone’s favourite Pascall marshmallows, I also have a soft spot for these jelly-filled marshmallows that you can get (in store) for $2 from The Reject Shop. Oh, I also adore mini marshmallows – and giant ones!

Basically, any and all marshmallows are good in my books, and I have been wanting to try to make my own for some time now, so I finally did! And, of course, I added a little The Small Adventurer to it by making them pink 😉

As mentioned in Tuesday’s post, this month’s projects are all inspired by my wonderful partner, Daniel, as July is his birthday month. Whilst he has no strong feelings towards – or against – fluffy pink dice, it’s really the marshmallow side of this recipe that is inspired by him, as we both love those powdery little treats so much!

Daniel also helped me make these guys too, as they aren’t the easiest things to make. We actually broke my whisk attachment making these 😅 It was poorly designed, but do keep that in mind if you don’t have a good mixer, as this recipe get very thick and difficult to mix! Now, with the warnings out of the way, let’s get onto the recipe!Read More »


A Whimsical Bucket List

In case you didn’t know this, I’m from Australia. We’re currently in the middle of Winter here, and it is freezing. Practically unbearable, honestly. I live in front of my heater every second that I’m at home. What makes the cold weather worse is the fact that 90% of the people I follow and interact with online are from America, or somewhere nearby, and are currently experiencing all the amazing, fun things that come with Summer, and I am super jealous.

All the pool parties, sunny days, and massive fruit platters that are currently all over my Instagram feed are making me crave the warmer weather so much more, even though there are a lot of things I love about Winter (hot drinks, electric blankets, cuddling whilst watching movies, etc). One thing in particular that I’ve seen a lot of people doing to make the most of Summer is writing bucket lists, so I decided to do the same.


Sure, everyone else is writing their Summer bucket lists, but the one thing I noticed about most of the lists I read is that, really, people just want to do quite simple, whimsical things, as they are the memories that you end up remembering the most. So, I wrote my own whimsical list!

What is featured on here is not even half of it, but I culled some things that are super specific to my life as that’s not going to be much help to you, and left in the ones that I think everyone can get some enjoyment out of it. If you have any more suggestions, leave them in the comments! I’m always looking for fun ways to spend my time ☺️Read More »

DIY Rubik’s Cube Pillow

It’s heeeeeeeere! July: the month of awesome – and mostly never-before-featured-on-The-Small-Adventurer – recipes and DIY projects, all inspired by my wonderful boyfriend. It’s his 23rd birthday on the 9th, so I decided to dedicate most, if not all, of this month’s creations to things that he likes, and I have honestly never felt more inspired!

The recipes are definitely my favourite part, and whilst I don’t want to give all of this month’s content away, I do want to say that one recipe is for SOUR GUMMY LOLLIES, and they are amazing. Exactly like the sour gummies you buy from the shop, only better because I designed them to look like an important item from Daniel’s favourite movie – which is a movie that I KNOW a lot of you will love as well!

To kick off this month of exciting projects is one of my all-time favourite things to make: pillows! I am honestly kind of obsessed with pillows. Over the last two months I’ve made an Animal Crossing pitfall seed pillow, a donut pillow, a Mario Question Block pillow, and now this Rubik’s cube pillow, which is easily the most tedious one of them all 😂

Now, truth be told that Daniel doesn’t love Rubik’s cubes as much as he does the other things that I’ll be sharing this month, but he is really good at them – AND we have, like, five in our office – so they always remind me of him.

Plus, as you can probably tell from the list above, I am kind of on a mission to make a heap of geeky pillows to go in our office, so this fits in quite well. So, if you’ve got a lot of patience and time on your hands, then read ahead and find out how to make your own Rubik’s Cube pillow ☺️Read More »
