1. The most amazing Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook. I LOVE cookie dough, and it’s filled with recipes with an eggless cookie dough. Check out the cookie dough pancakes, and blondes–my fave!

2. Cobalt Blue Merona Purse  Such a fun bold color for winter, or any season. Love mine!

3. Say NO to Auto beginner photography book, 3 simple steps to understanding your manual camera settings. Just a little book I wrote to help beginners with their photography.

4. Get Focused intermediate photography book, 12 creative tips and techniques to bring your photographer to a higher level. Just a little book I wrote to help intermediate friends with their photography.

5. Lindt Crunchy Nougat Chocolate Stick. Similar. Yummy little treat I’ve recently discovered. Sold at Target or online.

6. Wet N Wild FERGIE gold album nail color. I’ve tested a bunch of gold shades, and love this one the best!

7. Colorful Ankle Socks. I am quite obsessed with many pair I’ve found at Target, this set are coordinating, but not matching in several designs.

8. Arrow Necklace from Charming Charlie’s. I love this unique necklace, you tie it whatever length you’d like.

9. Coconut Lime Cashews. YUM! Delicious snack with a kick…sold at Target in big or small packages.

10. White Chocolate Macadamia Laceys from World Market. OH my, love these! Other flavors available. I keep them in the fridge b/c I prefer cold treats.

11. Pretty notecards with colorful envelopes. I like to write notes to people and mail them. I get blank cards b/c they are often sent with just a random thought. I love colorful envelopes, because how fun is it to open up your mailbox and see something BRIGHT, only to find it’s a handwritten note just for you? Similar, check Target store for more options.
