This evening we had a Christmas party with our bible study, and so I used the excuse that I “had” to bake for some other last minute orders this week as an excuse to go ALL out on sweets for tonight!
Peppermint cupcakes, peppermint bark, almond roca, sugar cookies (I also made several dozen for the kids and I to decorate this weekend!), and of course the french macarons I whipped up yesterday! (So sorry I don’t have a recipe that is “fool” proof. Mine is perfect in MY kitchen, I’ve never gotten it to work so well anywhere else!!!) So much fun! Bonus? My Christmas candy for Christmas Eve is now complete and in the freezer. SCORE!
What I wore to bake (and dance around the kitchen of course!):
Cardigan: Barney’s Warehouse Sale
Sweater: Kate Spade
Scarf: Kate Spade
Pants: Banana Republic (oh why did I not buy a backup pair of these?!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin (recent eBay find for super duper cheap! Was breaking them in this morning)
And I cleaned up for tonight. I mean, any excuse to bring the Christmas Cheer, I go for it!
Dress: Kate Spade Emma (in red! thank you Nordies)
Necklace: Kate Spade
Shoes: Jimmy Choo, Strassed in light Siam by me.
And my shoe project, all painted and some strass on it:
I am SO EXCITED for these!! Although I’m honestly wondering if I should do the “Love” in clear OR a light sapphire Crystal. Decisions decisions!!! I do aspire to finish these by the end of the weekend. *cross fingers*
Only 11 days until Christmas! Are you ready?!
Until next time,
