Mozzarella and Avocado Concoction

Here's a quick fix to serve at a party on mini pieces of bread (you can buy them pre-packaged, like bruschetta squares). Chop up tomatoes, guacamole, mozzarella, onions, and season with lime or lemon. So yummy!

Yankee Candle Apple

This Yankee Candle doesn't have a set 'name' but has some general "apple" related terms listed on it. They have a few variations like this available, but I've only seem them in HomeGoods and never in the actual Yankee Candle store. This apple scent is really nice and refreshing. It's sort of an Autumn scent but I like to use it whenever!

Gingerbread Cookies

I made gingerbread cookies last month and went to town icing designs on them with my mom! Some of the designs came out really bad and we were laughing at the gingerbread "deformities". I used cookie cutters to shape them and included shapes like stars, candy canes, teddy bears, and other holiday shapes.

Nail Fail - Modicure

So! I recently saw a $20 Groupon for a bunch of nail stickers apparently worth $120 -by ModiCure The Modern Manicure. Great deal, right? So I jumped right on that and ordered immediately! Well, now I know why they were practically giving these away.

First of all, this nail sticker required blow-dryer heat to be applied in order to activate the adhesive. Except... it still didn't stick on all that great. Then, it was nearly impossible to file down the edge. They looked so ridiculous that I took them off immediately.
