What I Wore: Hot Tamales!

I don't know about you but I L-O-V-E Mexican Food.
Luckily living in So Cal I don't have to look far for some authentic goodness. I have lived outside of CA and nothing compares. Nothing. So when I was invited to help make Christmas Tamales with my friend Lauren and her family I JUMPED at the chance. I mean what could be more fun? Celebrating the holiday, spending time with friends and good food (and plenty to drink) was exactly the kind of activity I needed. I was posting Instagram pics throughout the day and Miss Kristen asked how I managed to look fashionable while cooking. I can tell you that my first thought was to throw on my comfies and that fashion was far from my mind. I wanted to wear red for the Holidays and I knew that pics would be involved because Lauren is a total photog! Then I threw on an awesome floral apron and CHIC would be the one word to describe my outfit. HAHA. 

Here are some pics from the day and one horrible outfit pic. 
ENjoy! ;)

 What I Wore:
Target flannel, F21 Black V Neck tee, Hue jeggings, Glitter Toms and no name beanie from Venice Beach
 Drink du jour: Coffee and Baily's (we went through 2 bottles. Oops ;))

We made a whole lot of cookies. These were the cutest! everyone got an assortment!
 Tamale station: Such a fun process. I definitely focused on quality NOT quantity (aka I was super slow at making them. LOL)

 The finished product. NOT burritos...the ends opened a little ;)
 My gorgeous friend Lauren. We met freshman year of college and were Sorority Sisters. Love her! Don't be jealous of her AWESOME Christmas sweatshirt. :)
