Holiday Lustlist

Hey a girl can dream .. Can’t she 👸🏼

I love this Furla College Tote in Petrolio from Bloomingdales! I fell in love with this color Petrolio ! I gave up on my quest for a Chanel bag..  (my hubby says that I am not a Kardashian..Bummer) $578.00


I found this Nurse Jamie Age Delay Pillow on Khloe Kardashian’s website and it looks like a dream to sleep on! Super soft and it fights wrinkles !! I want it! Sleep is very important to me and I sleep on my tummy which is supposed to be no bueno! I can def see myself cuddling up to this at night.

Tis the Season for Gifting/Lounging

Holiday Season is upon us and I thought I would share a lil gift guide with some of my favorite things :)It’s always fun to make a wishlist so I decided to throw one together along with  my favorite stores. (These opinions are my own..)

It’s getting chilly outside so I’m all about being kept cute and cozy while I’m hibernating this Winter.

Panda Onesie from American Eagle.. My daughter and I are big fans of onesies..They are super cute and comfy to lounge in (and binge watch Netflix in)..I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it! Who doesn’t love Panda’s ?! Currently on Sale $52.46pandaonesie.png

Ugg Australia Dakota Slippers in Jester Red.. I love these slippers and I think they are a lil luxurious  and not something you would typically buy for yourself. (I asked my mom to get me these)You can also get them for the man in your life … Since they do come in men’s and Kid’s sizes.$99.95 slippersred

Blanket Scarf from Aerie.. I’m all about being cute and cozy this winter and I must say this is a trendy must have accessory for this holiday season! Here are a few ways to wear this look thanks to the aerie blog ! The chilly weather is kicking in here in NY and I’m excited to try this look!12317622_1115224435157412_1142826937_n(1)

I guess my theme of cute loungewear is going strong…with the Snowball Fleece Short Robe in Red from Victoria’s Secret. I thought this robe was adorable with the ears on the hood (I’m a sucker for the ears)! They only had a medium left in the stores and I gifted myself with it. I have been wearing it nonstop since then..$59.5012237341_1023378301015578_2118437329_n(1)

Spritz Butter Cookies

Ok since it is Christmas time I thought I would share my favorite cookie recipe! I have been baking these cookies for years!! I love using the cookie press to create perfectly shaped spritz cookies. The cookie press you can really buy anywhere I use to have a manual one but a few years ago I upgraded to an electric one from cuisine art. You can get fancy and Throw some food coloring and sprinkles on them too. The recipe I use is simple:
1 egg
4 sticks of softened room temp butter (it’s all about the butter)
1 1/2 cups of Confectioner sugar
2 Tablespoons of pure vanilla extract
1/2 Teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Then whisk the flour and salt.
Then beat the butter and sugar with a mixer until creamy then add the egg and vanilla extract. Slowly add the flour. If you want to use food coloring you can add a few drops of desired color now.
Fill cookie press up with dough and choose your desired disc shape. Place cookie press down on cookie sheet and press down on button for typically 3-4 seconds and lift up. Repeat until cookie sheet is full.
Add sprinkles.(optional)
Bake for 7-8 min or until edges are lightly golden brown (keep an eye on it) on a ungreased cookie sheet.
