CHRISTMAS PREPPING

  




Just a few days left and christmas is here again. To make these days as fun and relaxed as possible, the key is preperation. I've already started wrapping the gifts I bought for everyone (which always takes up more time than you think, cause you wanna make them as perrrty as you can ;) selected some festive nailpolishes and did most of the shopping for christmas dinner, some things you just can't buy that long in advance but the less you have to do/buy last minute, the better!

This weekend I bought something new to me, Aspen Cider Spices. You can use it to flavour your cupcakes, applepies you name it. The store I bought it in made Apple Cider out of it which is nothing more than 0.7 litres of applejuice, 0.3 litres water and 2 tablespoons of the spices. (add rum if you want to..) We tried out the non alcoholic one and it was sooo delicious and christmassy, I just had to have!


How are you doing on your christmas preperations? Are you a last minute person, or do you try to do things in advance? Let me know!

  1. I actually don't really do anything special for xmas, Im not a very crafty girl myself and my parents already had the tree prepared when I got here... But I always leave the presents for last minute because I never know what they want to get haha

    Hey meis, ik heb ze bij Hoeve Hofackers gekocht (interieur winkel in Baarlo) maar ik zag dat ze ze ook via internet verkopen bij http://www.barton-webshop.nl/Aspen-Cider-Spices en http://www.verrassendgoed.nl/winkel/index.php?cPath=92. :)

    Veel liefs, Daphne
