Shortbread Stars


Whenever I’m in need of a recipe, the first thing I head for is Google. I love how millions of recipes are so accessible simply due to the power of the Internet. Type carrot cake into the search engine, and you have thousands of different recipes to choose from and I must admit it does make baking so much easier.

All Wrapped Up


As if everyone else hasn’t been harping on about it enough but incase you missed it, there’s only 2 days till Christmas! A scary thought I know – so for those who are known for their tendency to leave their Christmas shopping and wrapping to the last minute, this post might have just come at the right time for you.

Drizzled Cookies


Icicle laden cookies anyone? These cookies are perfect for those with a sweet tooth. The combination of the brown sugar with the chocolate chips is sure to give you that sugar rush that you so need in the run up to Christmas (it’s the one time of the month where the calories don’t count!)

However, just because the reason behind this trip was business related, doesn’t mean it was all work and no play! There was no way I could leave without partaking in a little shopping trip…because you know what they (I) say, “when in America, shop!”.

Although I was left slightly disappointed with the fashion choices on offer, I did manage to pick up a few bits and pieces.

One store I was most excited about visiting was Target. For any American peeps reading this, you’re probably thinking WTH! But after hearing all about Target on the internet space, I couldn’t wait to check out all the crafty goodness they had to offer. Let’s just say I wasn’t left disappointed, they had everything you could ever want all in one store. From clothing, to makeup through to snacks and homeware, I could’ve easily spent 4 hours browsing…
