Lilly's New Christmas Sweater

I just got this gorgeous, hand knitted sweater from the designer I work for at LP&P. It is made of pure wool and hnad knitted by a group of women in India. The bow is silk and can be swapped out for any trim you please. My little Lilly looks so cute bundled up in it! We also carry a line of dog bags and leashes that make great gifts.

My boyfriend and I made these on the wee-end and they are soooo yummy! I have tons of dough left so I will be baking for the next fortnight! I stuck pretty much to the recipe below, but I did add a little vanilla extract.
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 cup dark molasses
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer cream the butter, add the sugar, and beat the mixture until fluffy. Beat in the egg, the molasses, and the vinegar.
Into another bowl, sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt and stir the mixture into the butter mixture, a little at a time. The dough will be soft. Divide the dough into fourths, dust it with flour, and wrap each piece in waxed paper. Flatten the dough slightly and chill it for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll out the dough, 1 piece at a time, 1/4-inch thick on a floured surface and cut out cookies with a 4-inch gingerbread man cutter dipped in flour. Transfer the cookies with a spatula to buttered baking sheets, arranging them 2-inches apart, and bake them in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes or until no imprint remains when they are touched lightly with the fingertip. Transfer the cookies with the spatula to racks and let them cool. Make cookies with the dough scraps in the same manner. If desired, pipe the sugar icing decoratively on the cookie using a pastry bag fitted with a small decorative tip. Let the cookies stand for 20 minutes, or until the icing is set.

I bought this mascara recently and I love it!! It is not too blue and garish once it dries. It really makes your eyes stand out and is a nice change from the staple black. This one is from benefit and costs $19.

Addicted to Scrabble!

I have become addicted to board games and most recently, poker! It seems to be spreading too, I went to look for playing cards a week back in a local toy store only to find adult couples browsing the jigsaws and pictionary isle! not a child in sight! On this same vein, a friend of mine brought up the concept of designing children’s clothes for adults.......
