Happy Friday! I’m back from a little blogging hiatus. It’s been tough jugging my new day job and trying to pack up my place to move in two short weeks- eek! I am so excited to settle into my new digs and start to make it my own.
Enjoy this week’s Top 5 and have a glorious weekend:)
Happy #nationaltequiladay!! I don’t think it’s a coincidence that it fell on a Monday. I’ve never met a margarita I didn’t like, but one of my favorite tequila cocktails is the paloma.
It’s easy to make and so refreshing- the perfect summer cocktail IMO. There are several variations, but this is is one is my go-to. I like to add a spicy/salty rim to give it a little kick. I had a blast shooting (and tasting) this little pink beauty. Cheers and hope you give it try!
Coarse sea salt mixed with chili lime rub for the glass
2 oz. (60 ml) sparkling water (I used lime LaCroix)
1 thin slice grapefruit
Spread the salt and chili lime rub on a small plate. Moisten the rim of a glass with the lime wedge, invert the glass onto the plate, then shake off any excess salt mixture. Fill the glass with ice.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the tequila and grapefruit juice. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds, then strain into the prepared glass. Top with the sparkling water and stir gently to combine. Garnish with the grapefruit slice and enjoy immediately.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE!!! Hip hip hooray for early access. This is the best sale of the year and a great way to snag brand new Fall merchandise discounted up to 40%! I’ve stocked up on so many great things and included my top five picks which are sure to sell out quickly. Happy shopping my friends!
Happy Friday! Hope your 4th of July was fun and you survived the short work week. We’re getting close to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and can’t wait to get in on the early access action starting 7/13. Keep an eye out for my picks next week and have a great weekend!
Happy Friday! I can’t believe 4th of July is just around the corner. I hope you’re getting a head start on the long weekend festivities. I’m ready for sunshine and pool time. Speaking of…I’m a huge fan of one-piece swimsuits and designers have really up’d their game over the past year. There are so many great options and i’ve had my eye on this sexy little crochet number. I’m sure there will be some interesting tan lines, but well worth it:)
Also, we’re getting into the thick of the sticky summer heat and there’s nothing worse than thigh chafing; especially if you’re like most women who aren’t blessed with a thigh gap. Blogger Katie Sturino of @the12ishstyle, is the brains behind the Megababe product line and it’s awesome! Due to overwhelming demand, it’s backordered until July 28th so get on it ladies!
Happy Friday! This week has been quite interesting and full of exciting changes. More details to come soon!
It’s officially summer and can’t stop shoe shopping! I’m a sucker for leopard print and these adorable sandals are only $45! Also, I’ve been on the lookout for a camera bag and really love ONA Bags. They’re made well and look great. Also, they contribute $10 from every bag sold directly into their Storytelling Fund, which supports the work and development of emerging photographers and creatives.
