NYC Sweater Weather

My winter uniform is pretty much: cozy sweaters, suede/patent booties, dark jeans, darker nails, a crossbody bag and hoop earrings (the one's I am wearing here are from ByNouck). Now that I'm back in the city, I've gone on a little sweater weather shopping spree. I've linked some of my most recent purchases (and what I'm lusting after) below. The black patent booties are a total steal at $40 (and so comfy, I've spent the week traipsing around NYC in them) and you can find them at Forever21!

Gifts for the Guys

As promised, I've published 'Gifts for the Guys' today. I personally love the wooden coffee press, and I know the fancy Zalto wine glasses are on my dad's list. The monogrammed duffle bag is a great Etsy find - Etsy sellers always give the sweetest personalized touch. My brother already owns the Patagonia shirt in the short sleeve version and it's one of his favorites. Hope you enjoy my picks!

You know it's December when you start to whip out your old Christmas cookie recipe book! I like to make these British treats while listening to Christmas music (cue 'Driving home for Christmas'). You can finish these cookies off with icing sugar or leave them plain. You can also make your own jam from scratch, or cheat like I did this time and pick some up on your next grocery shop.

1/2 pound butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
Raspberry or strawberry jam (you can make this from scratch, or use store bought)

Cream butter. Add sugar and cream again. Add egg and beat until light. Sift dry ingredients together and add gradually, adding vanilla with first flour addition. Roll out on floured board as thin as possible. cut with round cookie cutter and make small holes in the middle with a smaller cutter! Bake on greased sheet for 10 minutes at 350F.

Remove to wire racks to cool. When cold, put together in pairs with thick jam!
