12 days of baking || cocktail crisps

we all have that friend who no matter what, just always knows about the coolest stuff before the rest of the world. that someone who somehow hears about the greatest restaurants, most delicious yet cooly obscure coffee shops, the hippest websites and all the greatest items to fill your living room and closet (a full season before anyone else.) and then they travel to other places and STILL manage to find all the coolest stuff there too. whats with that?

for me, that person is anna palmier. she is actually the coolest person i have ever known. her blog is incredible- a perfectly curated mix of dreamy travel photos, delicious food and drinks, and always packed with details on things i completely adore before i even know i adore them. i honestly don't know where i would find all my favourite cool things if it weren't for anna.

 AND shes just so happens to be an incredible and creative cook! case and point- these delicious looking savory cookie/cracker crunchy bits! YUM!!
