More DIY- Blugirl inspired handbags

Happy holidays everyone!

They have been happy indeed, for me at least, this being the first holiday I spent with my little family, at it being my son's first Christmas. I especially enjoy giving presents and this year I ended up making some of them myself.

Remember the Blugirl inspired silk chiffon flower handbag I made based on a secretlifeofabionerd video which I shared with you? Well I ended up making two more as presents for my family.

If you like them and would like to make some yourself check out the tutorial.

Gong Bao Chicken

So...I have been sewing less lately and spending more time in the kitchen, I guess it's probably just a phase but hey, why not take advantage of it while it lasts.

While looking for recipes I found this cool blog that not only shares recipes but also gives great pointers on how to make your own Chinese dishes. It's in Romanian so if anybody needs help with the translation I'll be happy to oblige.

I chose to make Gong Bao Chicken and I gotta say it turned out tasting a lot like what I had in restaurants before. So the recipe is definitely good, I just have to do more work on my cooking skills..Christmas is coming up and I have a lot of plans in this sense so I'l be back with updates on that.
