Busy Bee

Excuse my absence as of late. I’ve been incredibly busy forcing my dog to pose for photos, taking pictures of flowers with my iPhone, and drinking Cider. I promise to be better.

Rock The Boat 2

So I’m taking tomorrow and the weekend offline and I’m giddy as hell about it. Have a glorious weekend and don’t be jelly. My life is rarely this carefree.

Tips for the perfect long weekend holiday:

  • Drink your signature cocktail all weekend – you deserve it!
  • Dress in breezy maxi dresses, anything sheer and havaianas.
  • Go for a natural look, wash hair, tie it in a bun then let it dry naturally – your waves will be killer – thanks Karen for that tip.
  • Create a Long Weekend menu and try a recipe using fresh produce from your local market – I’ll be chefing up cold eggplant stacks drizzled with olive oil and balsamic with fresh basil and love.
  • Enjoy an ice cream in a classic cone.
  • Head north, where the air is cleaner and the stars shine brighter
  • shut down your laptop, even if you stay in the city turn it off – explore your own surroundings and act like a tourist while you’re at it!
  • Own being lazy – if you have a DIY project or gardens you want to work on do it at a slow pace. And if you get distracted by cocktails or friends, who cares enjoy it.
  • Drink your signature cocktail..

Happy long weekend everyone!

This is what my car looked like this week…

This is me tomorrow…

This is what I will be looking at…

I will drown in this before I drown in the lake…

Rock the boat a little!

Happy May long weekend.

Trick or Treat*….

Whether your weekend is filled with costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, sipping cider cocktails or watching horror films, make sure you treat your self to lots of candy and trick someone you love!

I’m dressing up as a Russian doll –  staining my lips blood-red, lining my eyes with falsies, using a big barrel iron to curl my hair and wearing the biggest faux fur hat you’ve ever seen! Can’t wait.

You can find me at a high top sipping caramel apple martinis with my girlfriends….

and maybe dancing on tables!

Happy Spooky Halloween weekend!

Fashionably Smashed*…(Happy Weekend)

Although I LOVED the warmer fall temps we’ve been having, I recently got acquainted with a new drink, The Cider Smash, which is bourbon and cider (thank you Seyward and Martha), and all of the sudden I started getting this heavy nostalgia for fall! Maybe it’s the gorgeous shade of brown or the spicy and robust flavors and cinnamon, but I’m jonesin’ for some cooler weather and I’m pretty sure this weekend is going to be typically fall’ish!  And nothing says fall like long sweaters, tights, hunter boots, pumpkin colored nails, and fall walks with friends (sipping bourbon of course)…

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 4 ounces chilled sparkling apple cider
  • Thin red-apple slice
Use a martini shaker and mix it up a little, place apple slices in the bottom of a bourbon glass and pour, divine!

Happy get ‘fashionably smashed’ Weekend!
