We hope that you got everything in your Christmas wishlist!
I’ve been wanting a DSRL for five years, but I’ve never gotten around to buying one until now. This year, I really kept an eye out for a good one to pop-up on Black Friday, so when the perfect one went on sale, I didn’t hesitate on buying it. It’s been two weeks since I received it in the mail, and I still have yet to try it out– until now.
I’ve been heavily relying on my iPhone since I first started this blog, and there where a few (actually a lot) limitations that I’ve encountered. So I thought that it’s time for an upgrade. I do have to admit that the shift from one to the other was a bit enthralling. HAH! Did I even use that word correctly?
Regardless, I’m super excited about Christmas coming up! I can’t believe that it’s only 5 more days! I can’t wait to hand out presents already. That’s the only thing that I can’t wait for!
Oh! Before I go, I actually didn’t make those macarons. I’ve finally accepted that I’m not too good at baking them. I was actually in my kitchen making a batch for this blog, but FAILED so bad. Macarons has been my toughest projects. To be honest, this particular dessert has really tested my skills in the kitchen.
They’re fairly expensive for their price which is usually $1.25+ a pop. But I really don’t mind paying the price for them if they were really macarons. If poorly executed, macarons can have different variations. And that’s what irks me in MANY bakeries all around town! They charge a $1.25+ for poorly made macarons because people would still buy them.
A quick run down on what macarons: They have an eggshell-like crust. Which means that they are smooth on the surface with no crumby exterior. If they did look crumby, it’s because the baker decided to be lazy and not remove the chunks from the almond flour. A definitely cardinal sin for all macarons in the world. It should also have a “foot“, and meringue filling.
‘Nough about macarons! I’m hoping that you’re all having a fantastic week! xx
Mine is cookies and hot cocoa in bed!
