Wednesday Wishlist

wednesday wishlist

I've been seriously lusting after this C. Wonder Tea Set on Shopbop lately. I'm planning on setting up a tea and baked goods cart in my apartment (because let's be honest here, I'm like a 65 year old lady and a tea cart is probably more fitting for me than a bar cart) and this tea set would be the perfect addition to it. Time to save up the money!


What's on your wishlist?

A Sweet & Spark Party

A few weeks back, fellow blogger, Monica, and I decided to host a Sweet and Spark party to help people shop for the holidays!

You may have seen a few posts (here, here, and here) with little peaks of the party, but today I wanted to share my round up of pictures of the jewelry!

This was such a fun party to host, thank you again to the Capital Candy Jar for their donation of flavored marshmallows for the hot chocolate bar and thanks to Jillian creating Sweet & Spark parties!

Hey all! Today I'm joining a link up that some of my favorite bloggers host to show you my holiday look for less! I wore this to the Sweet and Spark party when Monica and I decided that we wanted to dress up and be a bit more festive. I've started to love pairing plaid with dressier items, so I think it may start to become my go-to for holiday outfits!

A Holiday Cookies Recipe

Once it gets cold, one of my favorite things to do is bake desserts in my apartment. Not only do I then have cookies to eat, but my apartment smells wonderful. A lot of the cookies that I've made lately have been passed off to my co-workers, but I decided to make this batch for the Sweet and Spark party Monica and I hosted last week (full post on Tuesday!). These cookies were a big hit with the guests and a perfect holiday cookie. They're very easy to make, so I would definitely suggest whipping up a batch of these for your next holiday party.

A Holiday Cookies Recipe | Something Good, cookies, holiday cookies, peppermint frosting, christmas cookies

Cookies
2 eggs
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 box of chocolate cake mix
1/3 bag of mini chocolate chips

Frosting (from How Sweet Eats)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3 tablespoons evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

Topping (Optional)
4 crushed candy canes
Edible glitter

To make the cookies
1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl.
2. Once all the ingredients are mixed use 1/2 tablespoon to scoop out the dough onto a cookie sheet.
3. Refrigerate the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes, overnight if possible. (Note, the dough must be scooped out into individual cookies before refrigerating.)
4. Pre-heat the over to 325
5. Once the dough has been refrigerated, take out your cookie sheets and press each cookie down to flatten it slightly (I used a fork to do this).
6. Bake cookies for 8 minutes.
7. Remove the cookies and leave to cool.

Frosting
(I suggest making this while the cookies are baking)
1. Mix all ingredients together and beat until smooth.
2. Frost the cookies once they've cooled.

Topping
1. Mix candy canes and glitter together.
2. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the frosted cookies.
