Baby It's Cold Outside

Hope you're soaking in all the best parts of this Christmas season as much as we are! It doesn't get much more Christmasy than picking out a tree with a Starbucks hot cocoa in hand...We went with our cute cousin, and fellow blonde blogger Megan from The Chestnut Hill. It's the most wonderful time of the year! ;)

Christmas Best

Ten days until Christmas…yay! We hope you've all been enjoying those holiday parties, treats, bonuses, and getting any last minute shopping done!

Holiday Lips

There's something about the holidays that makes us want to go bright and bold with our lip color. Maybe it's all the glittering lights and festive decorations, but if there is ever a time to break out the bright lipstick, it's the Christmas holidays. Bold lipstick dresses up any outfit and even makes you feel more confident and cheerful! Almost everyone looks great with bright lips, the trick is to find the perfect shade.

For this post we just had to feature Paige's cute sister-in-law, Noelle. She has the kind of gorgeous, full lips that people pay money for and we can't help but be a little jealous! All her lips need is lip balm and gloss...but for those of us who weren't blessed with natural, full lips, we need to add liner to make ours stand out. We like to add the liner around the very outside of our lips, then use the side of the liner to fill them in a little and blend it. Then we add our lipstick or gloss to the inner part of our lips. 

Below are our top three favorite shades for the holidays and coordinating lip pencils, as well as a short video tutorial to show you the best way to apply :)

Nutty Christmas :)

We are officially in full blown Christmas mode. The decorations are up, and we're already starting to knock out a lot of our Christmas gifts. I don't know about you, but sometimes those random gifts we need to get are the hardest. For teachers, coworkers, clients, etc., you want to give them something nice, but also don't want to break the bank! This year we've got you covered with the perfect gift... It's super easy, inexpensive, and an awesome gift for almost anyone!

These delicious cinnamon sugar almonds are sure to please, and can be made ahead of time for gifting. Below is the recipe and instructions on how to make them :)

When we sent our little sister who's over in Indonesia on an LDS mission our new blog idea, and then our very first post, she replied to us that she loved the idea and wrote #sharethegoodness. 

That phrase immediately stuck with us, because that's totally what this blog is all about!

Not Your Average Pumpkin Cookie

Paige here…I'll be writing this post so I can do a little bragging about Regan's major cooking/baking skills. They are seriously on point. Always! 

She'll be responsible for most of the delicious recipes we'll post on here from time to time....most, as in I have one :) Sad, I know, but my one recipe is pretty amazing ;) Coming soon!! 

For our first recipe we're going super cliche this October and sharing, you guessed it, our favorite pumpkin recipe! I know the internet is overloaded with pumpkin everything this time of year, but these cookies are seriously the bomb dot com. If you're going to make ONE pumpkin recipe, it needs to be these!


Basically all I'm good for…
