Don't get me started with my obsession with stationary goodies....from notebooks, pencils, pens....

I am thinking about Christmas baking BECAUSE it'll be here before you know it....time just flies by...so not fair! But like I said I'm planning and I'm thinking these chocolate pecan pie bars are going to make the list!







LOVE this mirror!!







I grew up thinking if you invested in yourself your were being selfish and even though I know now that that isn't true I have great difficulty in doing this....I feel guilt. I also don't think this is just for 'women'...anyone who invests in themselves will go further but I think women suffer in with this much more.






Love the scarf.....and tote.

double chocolate chip cookie icecream sandwiches


I found this recipe here on pinterest and it's gooooood people!
I made some this summer and my kids, nieces and nephews gave it the thumbs up. 
I made pretty big cookies and let me tell this sucker here is a meal in itself. I literally had one for dinner! I do plan on making just the cookies soon, I think it'll be a family favourite.




Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • ⅔ cup Dutch process cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chunks
  • 2 14-ounce packages ice cream

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking sheet mat.
  3. In bowl of electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, creaming well in between each egg addition. Add vanilla and blend.
  4. In separate bowl, sift flour, espresso powder, cocoa, baking soda and kosher salt. Mix in half of flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix. Add remaining half and mix. Mix in chocolate chunks.
  5. Drop cookies by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets. Bake 12 minutes. Remove from oven and move to cooling rack to cool completely.
  6. Once cookies have cooled completely, remove ice cream from freezer and let sit at room temperature for 3-5 minutes to soften slightly. Set ice cream container on its side. With sharp, serrated knife, cut through ice cream container into ½ to ¾ inch rounds.
  7. Working quickly, remove wrapper and place slice of ice cream on bottom side of cookie, then top with another cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies and serve immediately or wrap individually in plastic wrap, place in a freezer bag and freeze for later.

The icecream I used was in a tub so I had to scoop a tablespoon or so onto the cookie.....it was messy but yummy!

summer favourites


I wanted to share some products I love and took with my on holidays.

I didn't take any AHA's products with me since I would be in the sun a lot. Cosmel's Hydro toner and eye cream a staple.

Avene came out with some new mineral spf and I bought the tinted one and really liked it. I also used Natura Siberica's Gentle Face Peeling 2-3 times a week.

Schmidt's Rose Vanilla travel deo for the pits! :)




I LOVE Treaclemoon's True Shea Love body butter. Smells devine!





I also tried a gradual self tanner for the first time and will continue to use Eco by Sonya's Winter Skin. It's so easy to use (just make sure you wash your hands after using).



In the evenings I used The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension but I need hydration (the sun and sea really dried my skin out) so I ordered Cosmel's Omega 6 Cream which is DIVINE!!!! I was worried it would be a bit too rich but no. Gives amazing hydrations and the smell....yum! Smells like vanilla and something else...can't put my finger on it!



Cosmel's Melli Sun Milk spf 30 (uva/uvb) is amazing! We were in the sun A LOT and no burns! We all used it (hubby and kids) and no one burned. I do wish Cosmel comes out with a high spf for face (I have lots of hyperpigmentation on my face).

Also I wanted to mention that I was also loving the Barine towels I bought. They are super thin but soak up the water and dry quickly. I will definitely be buying more next summer. You can see one of the towel below (stripes), I used it as a background for the Cosmel travel size goodies.




I did discover another Croatian brand - Adriona. I bought their spf 40 for face and I really liked it. I can't find it so I got this photo off of their facebook page. 


 That's it! ;)

sale


Hello!

I've been so busy with relatives visiting and keeping up with work that I've neglected my blog. I will be going on holiday soon and am having a little sale over at my shop before I go (thought I'd share that here too).
