Holiday Themed Magazines

Look what I found at my favorite second hand bookshop, back issues of CI & ATK's Holiday issues. I've been waiting for these for what seems like forever! I like torturing myself by checking their respective websites monthly and see what's the new issue is all about. Then I get impatient waiting for it to come out in the newsstand. For some weird reason though I cannot get these anywhere but from the second hand bookshop which is actually a good and a bad thing. Good being, I get to buy it at a cheaper price often it cost less than $2, the only con is that it's months delayed. Like this holiday versions I just found it today, 3 months after the holiday but I still bought them for the next holiday!

Got to run, have lots and lots of reading to do... 

P.S. My first time shopping online internationally was quite successful, I got the book last Tuesday and been reading though it.


I'm a nine to five pencil pusher who loves to play with flour and paper during my free time. Dreams of going to Europe and eat croissants and make pastries all day long!


  1. Enjoy them! I love the holiday-themed magazines and look forward to them each year.

    Photography is amazing :) I got you through your stumbling on my blog :) to be honest, looking at your piping and your craftsmanship, I don't think you need to go to culinary school anymore :) I think just buying basic fundamental pastry books *i.e. le cordon bleu, wayne gislen, CIA etc..* might be enough already :)
