Watermelon on the rocks? The best drink on the planet

Hi ladies! 

I have to share with you one of my all time favorite drinks. I’m a huge wine drinker, but I absolutely love watermelon. If I can have a delicious cocktail with watermelon, I’m definitely going to. 

Watermelon has a huge water content , which makes this drink so delicious. If you are one that is getting bored with a certain cocktail, you may want to try this. This is refreshing as well as delicious. 

This is making 1 drink.

-1/2 cup chopped seedless watermelon

-1/4 cup club soda

-1 shot of vodka 

-ice to blend

Place the watermelon and club soda and ice in your blender. Blend it well and then once it’s blended, add your vodka. Yummy! Add a garnishment such as mint or a cucumber.

Fall Must Haves for 2016

Fall is here, and there is nothing like getting your Fall wardrobe together. It has always been my favorite time of the year. I absolutely love the cooler weather, especially coming off of a very hot summer. The  sports, and bonfires are something that I will forever treasure. It is also my absolute favorite fashion season too.  Who can’t get enough of the boots, scarves, sweaters, and vests that come out each fall season. There are so many ways to pull off a great season style. You can go from day to-night with just a few accessories.

I have many great items that I love dearly this time of year. Matter of fact, I pull them out every fall season. They include my Burberry Scarf that I love with all of my heart. ( yes its dear to me). It goes with just about everything for a sleek , yet casual look. It can be paired with a great pair of jeans and boots, and a great jacket. I love the Autumn colors in it, and that is why I love it so much. Did I mention how warm it is also? I have had this forever it seems, and I grow more and more in love with it.

I recently bought a new wonderful hat that I can’t wait to pull off this year. It is a gray , floppy hat that I found at Zara. Zara is a store that has everything. I can literally get lost in that store for hours. Their clothes are classy and sleek, and have a French twist to them. It’s very modern, but high fashion. The store carries anything from simple pieces to an outfit you could see on any runway. The hat would look great paired with a long tunic, and vest.

Every Fall season, I can’t help falling in love with the amazing dark nail colors. I very rarely use color on my nails, except in the Fall. I love the reds, purples, and golds. I know they look trendy, but wow are they gorgeous. I love the Revlon color Vixen. One of my all time favorites. This color looks great on nails and toes, especially if you will be wearing some nice open toe shoes. Vixen is a great color paired up with my favorite lip color by Too Faced Melted. The color in Metallic chocolate is a great color for anyone. It looks absolutely gorgeous on.

The shoes make the outfit right? Well of course. My all time favorite accessory is the shoe. The boots that I am loving this fall are those by Vince Camuto. I cant tell you how much I love his shoes. I’m borderline obsessed I think. He has a knack for hitting every style known to man. They range from over the knee to the ankle bootie. Check out my faves!fullsizerender-176fullsizerender-175

Handbag essentials

Hi ladies! 

I’m sure all of you are loving the great handbags out this fall. The colors are amazing, and I’m loving Kate Spades Gorgeous grey handbags. It’s always fun to buy a great handbag, but filling it with the essential everyday belongings is just as important. We never know when we are going to need something on the spur of the moment. 

Handbag essentials doesn’t stop at your wallet and a tube of your favorite lipstick. I have a list of belongings that I keep on hand for those last minute needs. It’s amazing when you have kids , how much you need crazy little things. I always keep a pack of my favorite gum, and mints in my handbag. Of course your going to need them after lunch before talking to people. I keep my favorite pair of sunglasses on hand. I wear sunglasses always. It keeps you from squinting, and is overall healthier for your eyes. Chronic squinting causes wrinkles, which we want to keep at bay for as long as we can.  Have you ever been out somewhere, and your child drops something on their shirt, and your headed somewhere? Well that’s why I keep my tide pen in there. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to pull that out for use. They are wonderful , and literally erases every little spot. I have no idea what I’d do if they never invented those. 

One item that I always keep in my handbag is my calender book. I’m such a visual person, and I need to see on paper what I have going on. I like to look at the head of each month , and it helps me schedule appts, and such . You can see your open days versus your crazy days. 

The last item that I’m addicted to is my Burts Bees lip balm. I have no idea why I love it so much, but I keep my lip balm in there and use it constantly. My lips never get chapped, and I love that it’s all natural. 

Well those are my essentials. What is in your handbag?
