Fun DIY Holiday Treats . . .

Happy Holidays Ladies, I hope all of you are spending time with your Family and Friends this Holiday weekend.  I am very blessed and thankful to have 3 weeks of paid Holiday Vacation and let me tell you, I've been enjoying these first few days by going on long outdoor runs, re-decorating my bedroom and making these adorable Holiday Treats with my nieces.  Usually these are my go to Holiday dessert when I don't have time to bake however these were a special request by my nieces. They're a hit with kids and so easy to make, I listed the Ingredients and Instructions below in case any of you ladies are interested in making these delectable treats. Enjoy!

*Reindeer Mini Donuts*

-chocolate frosted mini donuts
-white sprinkles (round)
-red & green plain M&M's

Push M&M® into the middle of the donut. Put 2 white sprinkles above it for eyes,
break a pretzel in half and add the two halves at the top for antlers!

*Nutter Butter Acorns*

-Nutter Butter bites
-Nestle Mini Chocolate Chip kisses
-Hershey's Almond kisses
-Peanut Butter

Layer the flat side of the Hershey's Almond kiss with a light layer of peanut butter and
press it together with a Nutter Butter. Next dip the flat side of a mini chip in peanut butter
and place it on the top center of the Nutter Butter. Let them sit so the peanut butter has
time to harden. Enjoy!

Sneak Peek! Kate Spade Beauty bag . . .

 I previously did a "What's in my Bag" post (which you can see here ) so I thought I would do a follow up post with a "Sneak Peek into my beauty bag". . . I scored a ridiculous deal on my Kate Spade cosmetics bag a couple weeks ago.  I looooove it! The bright polka dots make my heart go pitter patter . . . so girly and fun! Again, as I mentioned in my Handbag Sneak Peak post, I am a compulsive neat freak, OCD to the max!!! Which is why I keep only the bare essentials in both my handbag and beauty bag. So here goes ladies, a sneak peek into my beauty world . . .

1. Kate Spade Cosmetics bag
2. MAC Mineralize in Medium Plus
3. Anti-Bacterial/Nail File
4. MAC Opulash Mascara in Bad Bad Black
5. Fluidline in Blacktrack
6. MAC Large Powder Brush # 150
7. MAC Skin Refresher Finishing Mist
8. Studio Fix Fluid in NC 30
9. EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit
10. MAC Lipstick in See Sheer
11. MAC Blush in Well Dressed
12. MAC Buffer Brush #181

Rain rain please say you'll stay . . .

These days are rare in Southern California so when they do come around I enjoy every last minute of them.
Today is one of those days! To all my fellow Southern California residents,
I hope you're enjoying the rain as much as I am.

Clare Vivier . . .

I've been eyeing the Clare Vivier envelope clutch for the past couple months. I love "The La Pochette" the neutral color enhanced by a bright neon colored stripe down the middle . . . GENIUS! Who knew such a simple concept could make such a strong statement . . . Clare Vivier did! "The Foldover" is also amazing in it's own right and perfect for a night out.  My favorite is The Foldover in royal blue pebbled stone leather...looooove it! Although I don't have one of my own yet in the spirit of giving and being a great sister I think I might scoop up 2 of these stunners as Christmas gifts for my sisters . . . maybe a 3rd one for myself as well.

Check out her full collection here!

Amber Heard . . .

My obsession with Winter White/Ivory dresses continues. Love Love Love Amber Heard's classic and clean look. How cute are the front pockets? I loooove pockets on a  formal dress, so unexpected.


Package Arrival . . .

Soooo excited that my first pair of Shoemint delivery came in the mail on Friday afternoon. Pictures don't do these beauties justice, they are gorgeous!!! The blush color is a true rosey pale pink hue, I was concerned that they were going to be more tan/beige than the blush hue that is stated in the description but all my worries were put to rest immediately after I opened the box.  These are easily now the HIGHEST pair of heels in my closet. The hidden platform easily puts these in the 5.5 inch range (I think they might be 6). I'll definitely try to update you on the comfort factor after my first wear but considering that they're at least 5.5 inches high I'm expecting to be in pain after wearing them.  It's worth it!

All I want for Christmas . . .
