Chocolate chip oatmeal cranberry cookies!

I whipped these cookies up the other day for a work potluck. I'm a pretty horrible baker and I can pull these off! 

What you need: 
1/2 cup butter 
1/2 cup brown sugar (I would recommend 1/4 cup if you do not like your cookies too sweet)
1 egg 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour 
1 cup oatmeal 
1 tsp baking soda 
1 cup dried cranberries/raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut (optional)

How to: 
1. In a medium bowl combine your flour and baking soda 
2. In a large bowl, cream your butter and brown sugar until fluffy 
3. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix together 
4. Slowly add your flour mixture into the large bowl 
5. Add oatmeal and mix 
6. Fold in chocolate chips, cranberries and coconut
7. Bake at 350 degrees Celsius for 8-10 minutes 
8. Enjoy!

Open Ceremony buckle wedge for $20!

Remember these on  Chloë Sevigny?? 
I got very similar ones for 20$ at Gap this week! 
They have a 2.5 inch suede wedge and they are surprisingly comfortable! They come in nude and black! Go check out your Gap store to find yours!

Yellow Kitty

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure "Yellow Kitty" is a pastel yellow with a cream finish. There is no glitter or shimmer and the color reminds me of butter or corn. I bought it at Superstore (Loblaws) for 6$. Not cheap for a drugstore nail polish but I love the color. It makes me happy and adds a pop of color into my boring neutral palette!
The formula is a tad streaky, I used 3 coats with no top coat in the picture. It starts to chip on the 4th day of wear without a top coat. 
Have you tried any colors from this line?
