Holiday Treats

First, do you like eggnog? I know it's something people usually love or hate. There's no middle ground. I'm a big fan of it myself. It's sweet and creamy. And it tastes really good with rum or amaretto. It's definitely a treat I enjoy throughout December.

Recently while Christmas shopping I stopped in Sephora and came across the Philosophy Holiday line. Their Old Fashioned Eggnog Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath smells amazing! Exactly like eggnog! I wanted to drink the bottle right there in the store.

It's a pricey bottle of shampoo so I didn't buy it. But I will definitely be checking to see if it drops in price after Christmas. Though Adam doesn't like eggnog, I like the idea of smelling like it for me!

I've also been trying the Davids Tea holiday flavours. Cookie Dough was surprisingly satisfying. The after taste really does taste like cookies. I'm eager to try their Cocomint Cream next.

My Mom picked me up a bag of Andes baking bits when she went shopping in the U.S. recently. I knew I had to try out these cookies that I came across on Pinterest using them.

Oh my, were they good! I took pictures but I didn't realize just how blurry they were until I uploaded them on the computer. My cookies had more chocolate pieces throughout them and they didn't turn out as green, even though I put in the right amount of food colouring as the recipe states. Either way, I highly recommend these cookies!

And on a completely different topic, I recently did an interview with Kristy at Indie Girl Blogs. It was posted today and there's also a giveaway! Go check it out!
