Hi friends, I am up with another post again.... Now this is something which I made long back, this was post was delayed as it was a guest post for my friend, rafeeda's, blog, The big sweet tooth. As it was a guest post for her blog it had to be first featured on her blog and I was waiting for her time, as her blog was up with a guest post every saturdays. And why would it not be, coz for a wonderful blog like hers, anyone would love to do a guest post to be featured on it.... 
When I came across her blog at first, I was moved a bit by its name, as I thought this was the most appropriate name for my blog, for a sweet lover like me.....
