December Favorites


1.) In case you haven’t noticed, I have a little obsession with stars and when I saw those pants at Target and on sale, I had to have them.

2.) It’s the time of the year where I crave a certain kind of German Christmas cookie (Spekulatius) and I am so thrilled that I don’t have to wait to go home for the holidays to have them, because Trader Joe’s has them now (Speculoos) as well. They look a little different, but they taste the same. Try them!

3.) I had been overdue for an upgrade on my phone for a while and a couple of weeks ago, I finally upgraded (as an early Christmas present ;)) and I am so happy with the new iPhone. It’s a serious upgrade from my old iPhone 4.

4.) I found this cute stark necklace on Etsy. Isn’t it lovely?

5.) 2013 has been a blessing in the friends’ department and when I saw this stamp, I knew I had to have it to send out more appreciation mail to my favorite people!

6.) Reibekuchen (potato pancakes) is one my favorite German dishes and every year when I go home for Christmas, I have to have them. Lots of them. They’re sold at the Christmas markets, but usually my Mom also makes them for me at home = the best!

  1. Mmmmm….potato pancakes! I never get to eat them, but I dream about them.

  2. In my world, reibekuchen = latkes! I recently came across my grandmother’s latkes recipe, so I look forward to making my own batch at some point in the near future!

  3. That is awesome that you found your favorite cookies stateside. :)

    I upgraded to the new iPhone in November and it was a huge improvement over my 4 which was SO SLOW.

    I hope you are enjoying your time at home – I am not sure when you come back but I hope you have a safe trip back!

  4. I cannot wait to finally upgrade to an iPhone 5!
    Happy New Year, San! May 2014 be the best one yet! xxx
