  • Can’t Sleep?

    Sleep is supposed to be our number one beauty aid, but I have trouble falling asleep. So much trouble that in the past I used Lunesta, Ambien, and other various prescription sleeping aids. The problem was that I could feel the after-effects...

  • We Said Yes

    WE did it. The unthinkable. We decided to go to see Elmo Makes Music. There were a hundred reasons to say “No”: Our two year old son isn’t the biggest fan of “the Street” to begin with. We just had a new baby too – and our k...

    It’s Not Over Martini

    I know school has already started in many areas; in fact, my own kids are going back on Monday. I suppose I should technically post some apple-y cocktail to coincide with it, but I am holding onto these final weeks of summer with a white-knuckle death grip. I love the fall, but I love the easy breezy summer days much more and am not ready to go back to their rigid schedules, just yet. So this cocktail is my way of plugging my ears and pretending it is not happening: LA LA LA LA LA!!! READ MORE

    Cucumber, Basil and Lime Gimlet

    I wanted to think outside the box for this week’s Hump Day Cocktail and post something completely different, from the past few weeks. And so, I began scouring the internets to find something new and delicious for you all. When I found this one, it sounded so light and refreshing; plus, it’s the only one that doesn’t require you to make your own simple syrup. I love it when extra work is NOT required! So obviously, I just had to share it with you. I hope you like it! READ MORE

    Pineapple Mojito

    Did you know that you can grow all kinds of mint? Pineapple mint, chocolate mint, lemon mint, apple mint, and banana mint, just to name a few. I had no idea! This Pineapple Mojito calls for pineapple mint, if you have it, or can find it at your local store. If not, your cocktail will be ruined and you should just get yourself a sad little wine cooler and go sulk in the corner. I’m kidding! Regular mint will work too. :)

    Ingredients:
    4 oz pineapple rum*
    4 oz pineapple juice READ MORE

    Parker’s Punch

    A little over a month ago, I was in Baltimore, Maryland for my cousin’s wedding. It was a beautiful day, and the ceremony was amazing. When we got to the reception venue, cocktail hour had just begun, and a signature drink, designed by the bride, was being featured. I obviously HAD to try it; it was good. Really good. In fact, if I didn’t share it with you, I’d feel as though I was cheating on you all. Rather than live with that kind of guilt, I bring to you, Parker’s Punch. READ MORE
