Must Try Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some girls 2150

I wanted to make them a few times (just to be certain the first perfect batch wasn’t a fluke) before I pronounced them “The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe”.

I’ve now baked these cookies from AllRecipes 4 times this month, and they have turned out perfectly. every. time.

Emily makes this look so delicious and sound so easy to make. Just making a note here for future reference.

I’ll share with you once I actually attempt this. Cheerios!

Style Inspiration: What to Wear to the Airport

I’m dreaming of travelling some where warmer, granted it’s not blistering cold or covered in snow in Toronto right now but it is indeed grey and dreary. And as such, I’ve distracted myself by putting together some jet set style inspirations because being comfy and stylish is awesome plus five.

Lusting for Bookbook

Media_httpwwwtwelveso_mvrse

A novel way to cover MacBook.

BookBook is a one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case designed exclusively for MacBook and MacBook Pro. Available in Classic Black or Vibrant Red, BookBook brings three levels of security to your prized Mac. First, the hardback cover and spine provide solid protection from the rigors of the road. Second, the vintage book design disguises MacBook for superior security. And third, the stylish case protects you from being like everyone else because BookBook is totally original, just like you.

Ugh, you are so damn sexy. I want you. I want to put something inside you so bad. It doesn’t even have to be a MacBook, I’m not that pretentious. I just think you’re so awesome with your “velvety soft, padded interior” and “vintage work of art”ness.

Will you be mine?

The property at 224 Queen Street West was taken over by Juxta Productions last summer to promote movies.

Fake packs of blood are just one of many props used to promote the new Maple Productions flick Daybreakers.

Vampire-themed menus and drink lists intrigue Queen West window shoppers.

Super cool promotion for Daybreakers. I would like to see this, however, I don’t really have high hopes of this being a good movie so I’m still undecided if I want to see it in theater or wait till the DVD comes out.
