Canadian Giveaway-Charm up with Thomas Sabo!

I love love LOVE when I can give back to my readers.   I was gifted (from Thomas Sabo) with a recipe book, apron and cookie cutters so I got right to work making Lucy’s Chocolate cookies in the shapes of hearts, stars, and stilettos!

The star of this show is Lucy….

“Do you love spending an evening baking with your friends during the Christmas season like Lucy does? Then put your apron and get going! Lucy has summarized her favorite recipes for you, so you will be able to make dreamy Charm Club cookies.  Lend the cookies-in the shape of romanyic hearts, Christmas stars and fashionable high-heels-a personal note with a sweet embellishment.  There are simply no limits to your creativity and imagination.”

So let’s take a peek!!

To inspire thoughtful and creative ‘gift that keeps on giving’ ideas and experiences baked with the same quality of ingredients, care and attention you’d find in any fine bakery establishment, or your grandmother’s kitchen.

Latte Friday with Cherry and Meredith-Mylk uncookies edition!

In our quest for awesome espresso based drinks-our last stop, Thor Espresso mentioned the Indie Coffee pass.  It’s a pass that includes Indie coffee shops all over Toronto and allows a user (for a one time fee) a drink with a value of up to $4.00.  It’s a great idea-and if the shops weren’t so spread out, Cherry and I would have surely purchased (however we are restricted to shops we can get to within our 1 hour lunch break).

Sleek MakeUP Pout Paint party!

Imagine my surprise when @Beautycrazedcan a.k.a. Lisamarie asked yours truly if she was busy on August 20th.  My curious self had to inquire as to why….and of course only Lisamarie could’ve had one of the best invites I have received this summer….why, a pout party of course!  “Officially” this get together was to celebrate the launch of Sleek’s Pout Paint, which comes in 11 shades.  Sounds exciting!

Late night Snickerdoodle madness!

Picture this….

I am sitting on the couch with my other half watching my daily installation of Golden Girls (love that show and have requested the Box Set for the past 2 Christmases), and Dorothy brought up Snickerdoodles.  It was some kind of snarky response to Rose.  So other half remarks, “What are Snickerdoodles?”
