Let’s go ahead and squeeze on in here with a quick (quick) wekend round up. because yes, it is Friday at5pm, and yes, some of you are off to nice concerts and hot date nights, but trust me, you’ll thank me tomorrow when you’re all “But what should I wear today?” This. You should wear this. I mean…can it get much better? And as long as you make it to the gym (or bottomless mimosa brunch. Or better yet both), your shirt will tell the truth.

Wine Slushies for an Unexpected Thirsty Thursday

Sometimes, at a certain point in the summer you need to just throw your hands into the air and make a wine slushie. We have arrived, friends. 7/11 free slurpee day came, went, and left me feeling incomplete, probably because those slurps just don’t satisfy the Thirsty Thursday criteria. Specifically, those slurpee slushies are neither boozy nor fabulous. And while many may cast aspersions on rose, it’s quickly become this summer’s (um, and every summer’s) break out hit.

It’s time to raise your glass! And raise your glasses, if you must, to get a better look at the fabulous cocktails I’m serving up today. You can even make them sun glasses or hipster lense-less glasses. I’m ok with it. Just as long as you can partake in the pretty pretty blackberry beauties we’ll enjoy today. Follow me to the veranda. Today we’re sipping on these blackberry thyme margaritas. If two years of Thirsty Thursday has taught you anything, it should be that I love me some herbal cocktails. Gin & basil? Yes. Vodka rosemary? All day baby. So Read More →

Wedding Gift Etiquette Made Easy

Did you know there’s an epidemic sweeping our nation? Well, there are several, but only one of those may or may not be a construct of my loose scientific interpretation of happy hour gossip. I hear whispers of this illness from married veterans and newly initiated engagement ring wearers alike. You guys, wedding gift etiquette is out. of con.trol. Emphasis on the troll. Because sometimes, especially when reading certain wedding boards, I am convinced that these brides and/or their guests are trolling hard. For example: please do not post to the interwebs asking the most tactful way to enforce a Read More →
