Blogmas day 23! – A day of Christmas baking!

Hello beautiful people!
I can’t believe tomorrow is the final day of blogmas, which means there are only 2 days until Christmas! December has been such a wonderful month, full of lots of festive fun.
My calendar’s today:

This year I decided I would bake a few different things for our Christmas dessert, so I spent the day in the kitchen covered in icing sugar, flour and sprinkles.
I baked some rice krispie treats to take to Carmen’s moms tomorrow night. Since we spend Christmas eve with her, I thought it would be nice to bring a little something that we could all enjoy while we open gifts!

I made peanut butter ball’s at my sister Jen’s request. I wasn’t going to make them but she begged me, and honestly I didn’t need that much convincing, because they are heavenly.
Finally I made some sugar cookies since my family really seems to enjoy them!

It is surprising how many dishes need to be done after a day of baking! So now that the kitchen is clean I’m going to curl up and watch A Muppet Christmas Carol and fall asleep!

I hope you all had a beautiful evening and I’ll be back tomorrow for the final day of blogmas!
You guys are the best,
xoxo

Blogmas day 18! – A festive make-up look!

Hello beautiful people!
Tonight is my Christmas cookie decorating party! I’m so excited to see all my best girlfriends and enjoy some tasty treats.
I thought I’d share my make-up look with you guys because it’s definitely holiday party appropriate, and would be great for new years as well!
But first:

I wanted to incorporate glitter into tonights look, because really, if you can’t wear glitter to a Christmas party when can you?
and I definitely wanted to wear a red lip, so I went through my collection and this is the look I ended up with!

I’m really happy with the way this look turned out! I definitely think I’ll be wearing this again throughout the holiday season!

Today’s movie was the Polar Express which I watched while I was getting ready! one of my holiday favourites, because I just love Tom Hanks.

Blogmas day 17! – Baking for a party!

Hello beautiful people!
I hope your week is treating you well so far! we are officially one week away from Christmas eve, that is honestly insane!

I managed to have a bit of a lay in this morning, which was nice since I’ve been getting up very early lately. Once I finally got out of bed I had a very productive day getting ready for my party tomorrow!
Of course the first thing I did was open my calendars:

After I had some breakfast, I got my cookie dough’s out of the fridge and started rolling! I made sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies, and then I cut them into little elves, snow flakes, candy canes and trees because I thought they’d be the most fun to decorate.

Once I cleaned up the kitchen, I went out to pick up a few last-minute things I need for my party!

Today’s Christmas movie is a classic! Frosty the snowman! This is probably the movie I remember watching most as a kid.

Until tomorrow my loves,
