And So it is Christmas
December is upon us! And in the spirit of the holiday season I have compiled a list of my favourite things about the this time of year.
Every year my bf and I spend a day Christmas shopping. It has become a tradition. We start the day off going out for coffee (of course!) and then we spend the rest of the day downtown checking off our christmas gift list!
It is just so fun to put on some Christmas music, pour yourself a rum and eggnog, and decorate the tree. Plus this is the one time of year that I can put up a bunch of sparkly, glittery, colourful decorations and get away with it!
As a student I have had to get very creative with my Christmas budget. One great way to save money is by making my own Christmas cards. It is also a great feeling to give someone something you made.
As I have mentioned before baking is a passion of mine, so naturally I capitalize on making all the great Christmas treats. Some of my favourites to make are Christmas logs, chocolate hazelnut biscotti (actually chocolate anything!), frosted sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies, and rum balls (recipe posts to come!) and not to mention Christmas treats make great affordable gifts.
