Link Round-up: DIY Wonderland and Gift Ideas, Cookbooks, and Beauty Products

Today’s link round-up has a DIY winter wonderland, DIY gift ideas, a list of cookbooks to try, and beauty items you don’t want to miss (some are on sale!).

Foodie with Family had a fantastic and delicious idea—instant vanilla chai mix. Give it as a gift or keep a stash for yourself.


The Magic Onions shows us how to make a mini magic winter wonderland out of just a few items.

A Beautiful Mess has a collection of their favorite DIY gift ideas. There’s still time to use them!

Temptalia‘s got a list of this week’s sales on beauty items you won’t want to miss.

She Wears Many Hats spills the names of her favorite cookbooks.
