The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.


About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

Giving Homemade Christmas Gifts

One of the best things about the BF's mother (excluding the fact that she bore the BF) is that so KNOWS Photoshop. Her career was in graphic design so she knows things and has access to things that I would never ever be able to know how to do.

My Christmas present to my BFF is Apple Pie infused Bourbon Whiskey. (Thankfully he's too busy to read the blog or be on Instagram....) But I know that he loves Apple Pie Moonshine. Both of us are too cheap to spend the amount of money on the brand name stuff ($30 a Mason Jar!) when you can buy a cheapie big bottle and infuse it ourselves!

I bought some whiskey (the bottom shelf brand!) infused with apples, cinnamon sticks and cloves for 2 weeks or so. Wow, is it ever cinnamony and smooth!

I made a version of this a couple of winter's ago (On this blog post and this recipe) and I don't think it REALLY matters what you use, (It's not like it HAS to have 2 apples cut in a perfect 1/4 slice or just THREE cinnamon sticks...) just that you make it in a clean container with a good lid, keep it dark and cool, shake it every now and then. Its all good.

And you even have some boozy fruit to eat afterwards! MMM, fruit!

The labels the BFs mom made for me!

A personal touch to the label.

Taking a cue from Patron to make a handwritten Limited Batch label

Leftovers with a couple of cinnamon sticks when into here. A gift to me from me!
I guess this bottle was popular when the BF was in college! #nerdcore
The finish products.
The BF and his mom had even more fun coming up with the label (minus the typos! Ooops! :-O) then I did have making the boozy gift. It was fun to be able to work together on something!

Photoshop? Can you use it? I think I can crop and that's about it. Are you making any homemade gifts this Christmas?

  2. I love photoshop, use it all the time. Of course, being a freelance photographer, that sort of makes sense LOL. I'm not big on a lot of special effect stuff, but I do edit all of my photos.

    Love the idea for the handmade gift! I plan on doing a lot of that this season as well. I think it means more.
