this week in pictures

This week was my work Christmas party we exchanged secret santa gifts and luckily my match loves my baking so I was able to make half her gift cookies. I made her a giant (by accident I can never judge font size) recipe card of this recipe to go along with it.

I don't know how girls do ootd's I tried so hard to capture the vintage necklace I wore but couldn't get it right so here it is on a hanger.

With the new year approaching I decided to give my etsy shop a mini make-over. I am much happier with the new logo it should give me a push in the new year to keep up with my shop I only have 8 items right now. I really do enjoy packing up and sending off items so lets hoping I can keep it up.

These is a quote "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." and it is so true I think I am going on my third "fooling" here my friend sent over my Christmas gift but I had no clue it was my gift. I have done this before to her. Running a blog I do get random blog samples in the mail so when I saw this package from Naked Skincare I thought it was via my Winnipeg lust list post...anyhoo it was a lovely surprise I cannot wait to try the brand out. Thanks for the gift and still reading my blog Cary.

On the same day I found out a won a Jenna Rae Cakes gift card! They offer monthly draws to those who #jennaraecakes on their purchases. My candle pic from November was chosen:) Cannot wait to get down there after the holidays and pick out more macaroons.
Fyi my jenna rae candle is already half burnt if you have not jumped on the coal and canary candle bandwagon do so, they are truly fabulous. 

It has been a busy but great week, how has it been going or others?
