December Records

Monday, December 21, 2015 7:20 AM

Good Morning!  Can you believe that Christmas is this week?  I can't!  More importantly, I can't believe that I have almost finished my shopping.   Some are saying it doesn't feel like Christmas because of the unseasonably high temps we are having... I'll take it!  Here in the Northeast we are set for having the warmest December on record, and being the warm weather lover I am, I could not be happier.  

I have thrown away all preconceived ideas and fashion rules about what to wear around the holidays.  I have not been staying away from open toed shoes or feeling insecure about wearing bare legs. If it is above 60 all bets are off.  












What I wore:
Green Moto Jacket: F21
Dress: F21 
Clutch: Sole Society 
Booties: Stuart Weitzman OLD similar here less expensive option here


White Trash/ Christmas Crack

When I first began working at my place of employment 15 years ago one of my co-workers who is now a close friend introduced me to this delicious, super easy holiday confection. SO easy even I can make it! It has been called White Trash (because of all the ingredients and white chocolate), or Christmas Crack (because of how addictive it is), but you can find a more appropriate name and call it whatever you like. 
What you'll need:
Check cereal
Plain Cherios
Pretzles
Chocolate Chips
M&Ms (we like plain, peanut butter and peanut)
Wax Paper
White Chocolate Melts









Layer the ingredients  on a long piece of paper. With freshly washed hands, and gloves ;), mix the dry mix.  You can melt the white chocolate in a double boiler, or in the microwave on the defrost setting.
once completely melted pour of the dry mix, using your hands to spread and cover all dry ingredients with the chocolate.  Once the chocolate hardens, break it apart, bag it or throw it in a bowl as a party mix.  Makes a wonderful and cheap gift for teachers and or coworkers.

  5. I agree--if the weather is warm, no need for tights! You rock those bare legs and open toe shoes. I'm obsessed with this forest green leather jacket. What a great colour!
