Happy Holidays from H&K Style Journey!

Happy Holidays Tinfoil Tiaras Readers!  We are Heather and Kayla from H&K Style Journey.  Thank you so much to Emily for asking us to guest post for her and share with all of you a little bit of holiday cheer and some of the things we love to do during the holiday season!

We do bi-weekly Mother/Daughter remixes over at our blog, so we thought we would start off with a little bit of fashion.  Since the holidays are just around the corner, we thought we would attempt to remix a holiday sweater.  Sometimes holiday sweaters get a bad name, but we wanted to give it a try.

Our favorite holiday tradition is baking cookies.  We usually do a variety of several different cookies, but the family favorite is Peanut Blossoms.

Heather, Miss M, and Stringer the dog getting ready to bake. Please excuse our messy kitchen! Apparently we need a little bit of cleaning on the wall behind the stove. So embarrassing!
The finished product!
Another favorite tradition is heading to the zoo for the holiday light display.  The zoo puts up three million lights for the season!

Kayla and her boyfriend (aww, so sweet)

And of course the holiday music.  We love so many different songs it's hard to pick a favorite.  We like everything from traditional Christmas music such as Little Drummer Boy, The First Noel, and Silent Night to upbeat music like Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and All I Want for Christmas is You.
Thank you Emily for asking us to share some of our favorite holiday traditions!  We at H&K Style Journey wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and hopefully Santa brings you everything  you wish for this holiday season!

{Emily's note: can you believe that Heather & Kayla thrifted this adorable Liz Claiborne holly & berry sweater from Goodwill for only $4? These two know how to give Christmas sweaters a good reputation! Plus they've inspired my sister and Mum to do a family remix edition!}


  1. Great job, Heather and Kayla! I plan to make some holiday cookies this weekend. "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree" is one of my favorites too! But it's still 2nd after "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas." Find it on iTunes--it's cute! :)
