SPICED CHRISTMAS COOKIES


December is a time for lots of baking! I love baking, especially baking for people during the christmas season. I made these spiced christmas cookies today and they are super EASY to make! I also love that you can make them into all different christmassy shapes but my faves would have to be the stars and snowflake cookie cutters! The recipes used to make these spiced christmas cookies and basic icing recipe are found on taste.com.

DECEMBER REDS


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

One of my favourite things about holiday season is seeing all of the christmas decorations in stores and baking gingerbread cookies! December is the time when people start wearing matching red lipsticks and nail combo during the christmas season! Red is very much in season and nothing beats a great, classic red creme for nails during the holidays. But at times, I like to switch it up by adding a little shimmer and sparkle. Here are some of my favourite red and festive products that I enjoy wearing this season. 

+ Tanya Burr Lip Gloss - Vampire Kiss
+ Lime Crime Velvetine Matte Liquid Lipsticks - Suedeberry
+ CHANEL Rouge Coco - 19 Gabrielle
+ Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charm - So Marilyn 
+ Tanya Burr Nail Polish - Mischief Managed
+ Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Polish - Anthurium 
+ Natio Nail Polish - Ruby 
+ Marc Jacobs Nail Polish  -  172 Rita 


ALSO, over the weekend I went to a Ed Sheeran concert in Brisbane at the Suncorp Stadium, so I've made a video! Ed Sheeran was amazing, he is so talented and blessed. He sings AH-MAY-ZING LIVE!
