DIY Mermaid Nails

I've been promising you guys a new makeup tutorial, and here it is - a beautiful DIY mermaid mani! It's so perfect for Summer, and I promise you, it's quite easy to do. I was so inspired by the samples I recently received from Nail Social Nail Brand. I have to say, when I first saw the colors, I knew they were a little bit out of my typical comfort zone. Honestly, I haven't worn sparkly blue nail polish since college, which was quite a while ago for me. For years I've stuck with pinks, reds, and purples; with the most adventurous of my manis being hot pink (and only when hot pink was very on-trend). None the less, I was ready to try this "24K Mermaid" polish. Objectively speaking, as blue sparkly nail polishes go, it was pretty after all.

Snickerdoodle-Toffee Chip Cookies


One of my favorite cookies at Christmas time is the snickerdoodle. The combination of a traditional sugar cookie and cinnamon make me feel like the holidays have officially begun. Don't get me wrong, I love decorating gingerbread cookies for Christmas, but when it comes to eating Christmas cookies, pass the snickerdoodles! This year I wanted to switch up the flavor (and perk up store-bought snickerdoodle cookie mix), so I added toffee chips. The result was nothing short of a Christmas miracle. Whether you want a delicious new cookie to give as easy Christmas gifts, or if you simply want to add a new flavor to your Christmas cookies this year, try my semi-homemade Snickerdoodle Toffee Chip cookies.

Ingredients:
  • 1 package snickerdoodle cookie mix
  • 1 C toffee bits
  • cinnamon sugar for coating cookies
*If you want to start from scratch, here is my favorite Soft Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe.


Mix the snickerdoodle cookie dough according to the directions on the package (or make sugar cookie dough from scratch) then stir in 1 cup toffee bits. Roll the dough into uniform 1&1/2" balls and roll in cinnamon sugar (if making from scratch, use ratio of 1/2 sugar: 1/2 ground cinnamon). Place dough balls on cookie sheet a few inches apart and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on a rack before packaging.
