After exhausting countless grocery stores searching for cinnamon chips I finally ordered them online with every intention of using them for a Christmas-y recipe. However…weeks flew by and the cookies never happened! Rarely do I look for a recipe by the brand, however this one sounded too good to pass up. Incredibly cinnamon-y cookies drizzled with a basic sugar frosting made for the perfect afternoon snack on a rare gloomy/cloudy San Diego day.
My affinity for pink is slowly gaining momentum. Plus I have a burning desire to wear a hat every day (if only!). So, this is a typical run errands/check off to-do’s/take my dog for a walk weekend outfit. It’s what I like to call ‘stylishly practical.’ And one of my biggest to-do’s is to plow through my closet and sell/donate a mass amount of clothing and accessories. I’m a pro when it comes to procrastinating, so hopefully I can pull this off even though I know it feels so great afterwards. Have a fantastic weekend!
Dry and cold winter weather always starts a ‘war’ between me and my skin. Since the beginning of December, my skin has been incredibly tight and flaky so I’ve enlisted some new products to help replenish its moisture. I can’t get enough of these two items!
Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Primer – I’ve experimented with primers in the past but after choosing this free sample one from Sephora, I was immediately hooked. I’d say it acts as a moisturizer first and primer second. It replenishes my skin’s moisture in the morning and preps it for a smooth application of foundation later. Another plus…it doesn’t give skin that weird, slick primer feel like some other brands I’ve tried.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment – Most of my peeling and flakiness occurs around my nostrils and on the bridge of my nose. After applying my nightly serum, I’ll apply a thin layer of this Vaseline to provide an extra layer of moisture. On super dry days, I like to put some on my cheeks and between my eyebrows. Do I look like I rubbed shiny gloss all over my face before bedtime? You betcha! But waking up with flake-free, moisturized skin makes it all worth it.
