Cookies and Christmas just go together, right? It is a cookie that can make any day just that much better. It is a cookie that can warm the soul’s insides when it’s cold outside. The shape, taste, and look of a cookie is what truly warms a person’s heart. Christmas time allows us to be just that much more creative with our confectionery. A cookie in the shape of a snowman, or sugar cookies of Santa infects people with a sense of holiday spirit.
Obviously, the taste of a cookie has a lot to do with our love for them. Biting into a rich, creamy, and chewy cookie brings people back to mindset of being children and spending time in the kitchen with their family. This kind of cookie would warm any person. Cookies truly are the perfect compliment during “the season to be merry.” The best cookies are the those that bring back a flood of memories simply from their smell. It may sound silly, but sweet kitchen concoctions can brighten the day of most anyone simply by smelling the beautiful fragrance of the cookie, even before they take a bite into it.
Next time you find yourself ready to whip up a batch of goodies for your loved ones during the holidays, keep it clean and tie on your favorite Flirty Apron. Don’t forget to send us some of your delicious treats too!

How do you keep the house clean as they tornado through room to room?
This is a good opportunity for parents to set some ground rules when their kids are back at home. While it is important to establish responsibility, it is equally important to make sure that the rules don’t spoil the fun for kids while they are out from school.

By doing so, parents and their kids can agree on certain things that will make sure that they don’t spoil the fun during the season, all while remaining productive. You don’t have to only schedule responsibilities. Schedule fun, family time too.

During the winter months, people can expect snow storms to occur. This unpredictable weather can keep you boxed in your home when it hits. For people who are living in places where snow storms are common, it is important to always be prepared. So grab your favorite Flirty Apron and bundle up for some at-home resourcefulness.
Before the winter season arrives, it is a good idea to get a head start in preparing for the upcoming snow storms. If you plan on regularly commuting in the snow, make sure to keep your gas tank full, throw some blankets and emergency supplies in the trunk in case you get stuck in the snow. Emergency kits should contain some ready-to-eat food such as energy bars. Also, have a working flashlight and extra batteries in the kit. Since no one can tell exactly when snow storms will hit, it is important that you are proactive in preparing, because if you are reactive it is already too late.
Don’t forget about preparing at home too. Make sure that you have the right kind of supplies prepared. Always have food, water and some tools that can help you in cases of emergency situations during a snow storm. Since there might be some power or water shortage, keep a good amount of drinkable water and some candles and matches. You can never anticipate when you might need them.
These are just some of the ideas that can help you prepare for snow storms during the winter season. You can find more preparation suggestions online. Prepare early, and prepare fashionably with a Flirty Apron.
