Trying new things: My first bout with Vegemite

Hello Lovelies!!

This is the first post for my new monthly feature about trying new things. The idea being I will try a new thing (activity, food, etc.) and report back. As a refresher, here is the scale I will be using when judging the new thing.

The Hilary Scale

I was inspired by my dear friend, Rosie, to try Vegemite. I was told I would probably not like it but I wanted to know for sure. So I did.

Here are a series of photos of me taking my first bite.

My final opinion of Vegemite?


It isn’t my thing. It was a bit salty and had a terrible after taste. I ate three bowls of popcorn after to cover up the taste (and because I was hungry).

So tune in next month for my next attempt at trying something new!!pink signature


I should try new things.. right?

Hello Lovelies!

So, I had this genius idea for a new feature here on Cutie Cameras. Every month I will try something new and report back. It could be a new drink, food item, activity, etc. Anything really.

I don’t really like doing new stuff. Well, at least not when it comes to food or drink. I know what I like and I stick to it. That is why I think this will be a good challenge for me. It will force me to stop being so boring and doing the same thing all the time. I need to live a little!

This will be the first month I am trying this feature out so bear with me. This could be a bumpy ride.

Regardless, it is a ride I am willing to take!

In honor of this big step here is a photo of me taking a duck fart shot for the first time. Soak it all up.

Lastly, I will be including a scale in my posts about trying new things. We shall refer to it as the “Hilary Scale” or “The Scale”. I will use it to demonstrate my final vote on things.

Lets get to it!

What do you think I should try? Leave a comment with some suggestions!
