It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here and I truly miss it! Life has been pretty hectic lately and to be honest I’ve had less time available to make cocktails and have just been drinking them ;)

But behold! This Cranberry Martini made with homemade Cranberry Syrup…it’s not too sweet and has a subtle kick!

Cranberry Syrup Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

How to make: Place 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, he water and the sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until brought to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until cranberries are tender but before they burst, about 15 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a medium bowl and let the strainer sit over the bowl until the syrup has cooled to room temperature, about 1 hour.

Other Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 parts unflavored vodka
  • 1/2 part orange-vanilla vodka (I used Voli Orange-Vanilla Fusion, however just orange flavored will work too)
  • 2 parts cranberry syrup
  • splash of fresh lime juice
  • splash of orange juice

To make: place into shaker both vodkas, cranberry syrup and ice cubes. Shake well. Pour into martini glasses. Splash the lime juice and orange juice. Garnish with fresh cranberries!

With the cold fronts that have been hitting Miami lately, I’ve dressing pretty low-key. Lots of layers and boots. So it was so nice to wear this darling dress from Yumi Direct. It’s so feminine and dainty, I love it!

I thought what better than to pair it with delicate t-strap heels? The print of the dress, and the beautiful lace details, called for simple nude heels. This dress is from Yumi Direct‘s Distant Digitals Line, which is all about stellar abstract and color rich prints. This subtle floral dress I’m wearing is the perfect flowery print option for Winter!

And how pretty are those earrings? I’m sure you have been seeing them everywhere like I have. The style is called the 360 Pearl Earring, for obvious reasons. These are from a recent BaubleBar haul. I’ve been wearing them non-stop!

Studded Jacket



I love jackets. Every color, every style. They make styling an outfit a breeze and add an automatic finishing touch. When I got my hands on this Lookbook Store studded beauty, it was truly love at first site.

This jacket makes me feel way cooler than I am. It’s uber structured and the zipper details are so cool. I get the urge to kick some butt in this thing….”you want a piece of dis?”

Another thing I’m loving these days are cut out booties. They’re pretty sweet. I’ve linked below some different styles at different prices for Cut Out Booties.


I hope you’re all having a WONDERFUL week. Until next time loves!

I know many of you are in much (much much) colder climates at the moment, and either think I’m nuts or are sighing with jealously at these pics since I am wearing cut offs in December. But I promise you, while I love my city, I would love even more to be able to be bundled up in scarves and beautiful coats during the season. So I envy YOU.

Although this combo is truly my favorite look to sport during this time of the year, I wouldn’t mind actually having to put pants on for a change!

Anyway, how adorable is this sweater? I’m in love with varsity style sweaters, so when the LookBook Store sent this over my way I couldn’t wait to get it on! It’s sooooo cozy and can easily be styled preppy and edgy. Oh and it’s currently ON SALE.

And how about these Kelsie Dagger Peep Toe Booties? Also something I haven’t been able to take off since I bought them. They literally go with everything!

Shop Tartan!






Tartan is without a doubt the pattern of the season! It’s preppy, fun and classic.

I always know when I purchase décor, accessories or clothing with a Tartan pattern that they will never go out of style. So it’s a great investment.

I’ve shared with you up top my current Tartan obsessions!

Dress: Lulus Necklace: Prima Donna Shoes: Steve Madden


It’s December!! So much festiveness in the air and even in Miami, where we only dream of snow, there is definitely a feeling of the holidays in the air.

Each Holiday season I look for a few Holiday dresses that I line up to wear for the season’s gatherings. My go to is probably the usual for most girls…Sparkly, Red or Green and flirty and fun!

This year one of my Holiday dresses is this little number from LuLu’s. This dress is SO fun. From the flowy cap sleeves to the ruffled hemline. It was meant to be danced in!

Since I bet you love a good red lace dress as much as me I’ve linked up below EIGHT dresses in all different styles and prices. I hope you enjoy shopping through them, even looking at them makes me want to throw mine back on and partayyy ;)
