Tan Boots & Christmas Cookies

I shared my new (to me) tan boots on this previous post so I thought it was about time I showed some photos of them on my feet. Incidentally, since my last post, Kitty has been in touch to tell me she found a pair on eBay also but is struggling to pull them on. So I should warn that they are tricky in that respect. Mine are a bit big for me as I wear a specialist insole in my flat boots so I think that’s why I’ve not had an issue with them. But just be aware if you are looking for a pair online.
I wore them today with a cosy knitted dress from Still. It’s a cashmere mix heavy knit dress that I save for very cold days and today was one of them thanks to some freezing fog here in Belfast..

I then put on a short navy wool jacket from Primark for the school run but on seeing the photos, I agree with Mr SGS that it didn’t quite work with this outfit. In my defence, it did seem better in real life!

After the girls came home, I decided to try out a gift that one of my friends brought me last week. Chocolate Reindeer Cookie Mix!

Basically, you get the flour mixture in this bag, along with a cookie cutter in the shape of a reindeer and full instructions. All we had to add was some butter and eggs. It was so much fun cutting out our little chocolate reindeer..

then the girls put sprinkling sugar on top before baking..

and here they are fully cooked but cooling.

Definitely the easiest Christmas cookies I’ve made ever and the kit makes a great present to bring to someone over the holidays. I googled and you can pick them up in Lakeland or in John Lewis (similar).
Hope your Christmas preparations are going well. Cleaning the oven is my next job – rock ‘n’ roll!

  11. I like the boots – I remember looking at them when they had the shoeaholics site and that was also after seeing Thank Fifi’s blog. But I already had some builders boots so I left them this time. How are you finding them to style? They’re a more dressed down feel than what you would normally wear

    • Hi Sue, not finding them too difficult but they definitely are v dressed down for me. Good for my feet thought as I’m not really supposed to wear high heels every day :)
      Will do a few more outfits in the new year. Short shorts and black tights have been suggested to me as an option…mmm…not sure about that! Hope you get your computer issues sorted soon – miss you! Avx
