TGIF! Blood Orange Cocktail Recipes!


It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere!


The hubs and I were recently staying in on a Saturday night so we decided to play mixologist. Now, we are not big hard alcohol drinkers so we made due with what we had and personally I found it to be a success, surprisingly, considering what we were working with, which wasn’t much.


White Balsamic Vodka Soda:
That’s right balsamic vinegar. We heard about it…so we tried it…and I liked it…Hubs, not so much. I think he couldn’t get passed the fact that his cocktail had vinegar in it but I didn’t even notice. I found it refreshing.

Here are the deets:
Vodka
Club Soda
Splash (about 1 tbsp or to taste) of flavored white balsamic of your choice. I used a white champagne mimosa flavored one as well as a coconut flavored vinegar (not together…yep I had two) and both were yummy. I also squeezed a blood orange wedge into it to add some color and fresh juice but I don’t think it was needed.

Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange Vodka Soda:
It is simple and oh so good.

Here are the deets:
Vodka
Club Soda
Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange Juice

Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange Lime Margaritas:
Fresh and delicious! 

Here are the deets:
Tequila (Silver)
Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (I usually buy "Just Lime" juice to save time)
Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange Juice (about 1 orange per full blender)
Splash of Grand Marnier 
Ice

My 3 Favorite Trends For Spring 2014!


There are a lot of fun trends this spring but I decided to only focus on the three trends I am most excited about and currently incorporating into my daily style.


1) Metallics:

There is something so chic about a girl in metallic. This heavy metal style was seen on the runway over and over again and although it was fierce at Fashion Week it also tones down well in order to compliment the everyday lady. To incorporate this trend into your everyday style try starting with accessories. Think shoes, jewelry, purse or even your go to bikini of the season. For those of you that are a little bolder in your fashion choices introduce a shiny dress, top, skirt or pant into your wardrobe this spring.



Skirt: Marissa Webb


Top: Altuzarra





2) Floral Frenzy:

I love flowers and I adore a good floral print. This trend is fresh, happy and colorful; all adjectives to perfectly describe spring and let's not forget girly. Pair this style with your personality; go loud and vibrant if you like attention or a lot of colors. Or tone it down with something soft and less energetic if you are on the quiet side. Either way you will look great, feel great and be ready for spring.

3) Blush (duh, it's in my top 3!):

Here it is again; my favorite color of the moment. Although blush is not on Pantone's Spring Colors for 2014 list it keeps showing up and I couldn’t be happier. This is a great color. It is feminine without being cliché girly. It is soft and romantic but can be worn flawlessly by a strong, bold woman. I have been obsessing over blush for some time now and truly think everyone pulls it off (with the right tone for their coloring). This trend can go anywhere and has so much flexibility. In my opinion blush is a neutral, a basic, right there with black, whites, grays and navy! Everyone should use this color somehow. Whether it be with accessories, the clothes that fill your closet, the accents around your home or incorporated into your wedding design…blush is my new go to...what about you?


I love this whole look! 
Ditch the jacket to take this look from winter to spring as the weather warms up.
