Christmas is just a few days away!!!! YAY!!

So, as I write this post, listening to Story of My Life by One Direction and dreading the fact that in a few hours, Iโ€™ll be getting dressed to college, Iโ€™m thinking about the season finale of Dexter that I watched last night!

I am sorry but I absolutely CANNOT get over this!!!! I did not expect for it to happen the way it happened!

For those who havenโ€™t still seen it: SPOILER ALERT!!!!

I was totally rooting for a Happy Ending! I thought Dex would go away with Hannah and Deb would marry Quinn!{finally}

How sad was the finale!

But these cookies helped me a LOT!

They made me forget about this depressing turn of events for a while!

And now I am slowly getting back to getting into Christmas mood!

Yessss!!!!!!!

So, Iโ€™ve finally made the decision to move to a self hosted WordPress blog!

Any suggestions that you would like to give? It would REALLY HELP!

So, Iโ€™m thinking of BlueHost and Iโ€™m opting for a premade theme! But since I have a little knowledge on CSS, I was thinking of making a few tweaks to the original theme to personalise it more…

I also designed my very own logo! And I am soooo excited I cannot wait to reveal it! J

Hopeully by the end of this week and before Christmas things will get sorted!

SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!

And now back to these delicious crisp Christmassy cookies!

Itโ€™s more biscuity because I rolled it a little thin. And to make it a little festive, I added ginger powder to the basic cookie dough! Yes, the cookie dough is extremely basic with just flour, butter, sugar and an egg!Plus, Iโ€™ve been wanting to experiment with glass stained cookies for just too long! Then I came across these fantastic peppermint cherry rocks. And I was like….. YUSSSSS!!!! FINALLLLLLLY!

These cookies are too damn good to ignore! You have to make these! Excuse my poor quality of photographs!

I was so caught up with college assignments that i completely forgot that I had to photograph these babies! And it is only at around 6:30 in the evening did it strike me! And these are the results! :\

But they taste good! So, thatโ€™s a good thing right?
