November was and is always a good month! Here are my captivations lately.
Chocolate Truffles at Make It Sweet Class
My friend Amy and I enjoyed learning to make chocolate truffles at Make It Sweet at the beginning of the month. I put Make It Sweet on my Austin culinary class list because I’ve taken classes there several times and have always had fun and learned a lot! My Instagram photo was featured in the Austin American-Statesman too!
It’s going to be okay.
I love this comic on The Oatmeal. It’s a little and meaningful reminder of what we’re here for.
Austin Bakes for Refugees
A few times a year, the Austin baking community comes together to fundraise for people in need through a citywide bake sale. This month, we raised $1,269.46 for Syrian refugees and in five years, $60,000 has been raised for people around the world. Every little bit counts and I’m proud of everyone who stepped up to provide for others. This bake sale I donated my favorite salted brown butter rice krispy treats.
Speaking of Refugees
I found this video to be very clear and informative of how the Syrian War started and how it has progressed. Everyone should be informed about what’s going on in our world!
The Paper and Craft Pantry
I met Pei, a fellow Austinite, a few months ago and since then I learned that she has accomplished her dream of opening a stationary shop and workshop in a few months. As a lover of stationary and crafty workshops, I’m excited her shop is now open! If you are in Austin, be sure to stop by and support a new local business!

I read this article on The Muse and thought it was very helpful!
Hello, Holiday Season!
Ah, the holiday season is here! I enjoyed wonderful Thanksgiving time in Austin (boyfriend’s family) and Dallas (my family) and though I’m not ecstatic about this cooler weather, I’m looking forward to Christmas traditions, taking time off from work, and celebrating the New Year.
More about my November coming in my Flavors post later this week!
