A short week lies ahead, yay! I hope you all had a lovely long weekend with your loved ones. I had a beautiful one, since it was also my birthday weekend. My fiance took me to West Palm and we ate, drank, soaked up sun, went to a concert, visited a botanical garden and experienced a wildlife sanctuary. It was all AMAZING. After spending my last 5 birthdays apart from him, it certainly made up for it!
I actually brought this affordable floral maxi dress with me on my trip, because it is the perfect resort look for getaways. It’s breezy, lightweight and the floral pattern is obviously perfect for Summer. I’ve linked up above this dress, along with a few other of my similar favorites.
As for my clutch, it was my mom’s. I love how unique it is! She has great taste
Another week, another cocktail recipe! As soon as Summer swings into season I can’t help but to be all about them cocktail recipes. And of course, I have to share them with you!
This Tropical Lavender Cocktail recipe is the perfect chic Summer cocktail. It’s refreshingly fruity with a hint of Lavender to give it an unexpected twist.
Servings: 2 Ingredients:
6 oz. Tropical flavored vodka, I used Tropical Punch Pinnacle Vodka
2 oz. Fresh grapefruit juice
1 tsp Lavender extract
5 oz. Mango nectar, pure juice will work too
lime wedges, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, place ice and pour all wet ingredients and shake vigorously for 60 seconds. Pour into two glasses and garnish with lime slices. Simple as that! The easier a drink is to assemble, the quicker you can get to drinking it…am I right?!
Hope you love it! And a word of advice, be careful with the Lavender extract, it’s a potent extract-a little goes a very long way. So if you’re unsure about it, start with the smallest of splashes and work your way from there.
One of my go to looks when it comes to Summer weekends usually involves a pair of overalls. They are just such an easy piece to pair comfortable sneakers and cute accessories with, like my new Charming Damsel head scarf.
I love wearing my hair down, especially since I’ve cut it (it falls out of a pony-tail or buns so quickly). But with the Summer heat already in full swing here in Miami, I love having something cute to sweep my hair out of my face. Enter this bright and fun Charming Damsel piece! If your hair does stay put in a bun, I can imagine how cute this scarf would look wrapped around one!
I hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far, Happy Humpday!
This Jalapeño Cucumber + Guava cocktail is Sweet and Spicy, the perfect combination for all things in life. Am I right?
What I love about this drink is the kick of spice doesn’t hit you until you’ve enjoyed the sweetness of your sip. I’d say it’s a nice little surprise, but the drink’s name reads “jalapeño”. You can totally act surprised after every sip though…that may be fun.
Anyway, if the “surprise” kick doesn’t make you want to break those 5 o’clock rules and make this drink for breakfast, brunch and lunch too….then maybe the fact that it has GUAVA NECTAR will do it for. And if that still doesn’t, then I think we’re done here.
Just kidding! I love you. And you should go make this drink, now.
1/2 jalapeño, sliced
1/2 cucumber, sliced
10 oz of Guava Nectar (or Guava 100% Juice)
1 tbs agave
Splash of Grapefruit Juice
Muddle the cucumber and jalapeño slices until all juices have been let out. Pour juice into a cocktail shaker along with ice. Shake vigorously for 60 seconds. Pour mixture into the bottom of each glass (this amount serves two glasses). Then pour in 5 ounces of Guava Nectar into each glass. Add 1/2 tbs agave to each drink. Splash each with some grapefruit juice and sprinkle a little sugar on the glass rims. Garnish with a jalapeno slice and viola you’re ready to go!
Who loves jackets? This girl right here (insert girl raising her hand emoji) Nothing pulls together an outfit quite like a great outerwear piece! And during Spring and Summer, what better than a floral bomber jacket?
This floral print jacket from Style Link Miami is all about the details. From the gorgeous print, edgy zippers and button lapels. It’s the perfect piece to toss on a simple outfit.
P.S. can you believe the first week of May is almost over? Time is flying! But I’m pretty stoked, because my birthday is coming up and it’ll be the first one spent wit my fiancé in 5 years!
