yummy springtime martinis

spring and summer mean tasty girlie drinks
i found this awesome springtime martini recipe from
check it out!

what you will need

2 ounces, fluid Gin  
½ ounces, fluid Orange Juice 
½ ounces, fluid Pineapple Juice 
½ ounces, fluid Lime Juice 
½ ounces, fluid Simple Syrup 
¼ ounces, fluid Aperol

how you will make it

 Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well. Pour into chilled martini glasses and garnish with lime.
Note: If you’re not familiar with Aperol, it is an Italian aperitif, somewhat bitter and with strong notes of grapefruit. I’ve never tried substituting grapefruit juice for it in this drink but I think it would probably work.

enjoy :-)

It's After Easter, Can I Wear White Now?

so what's up with the "you can't wear white after labor day" rule?  a little outdated?  i think so.  back in the olden days, it was considered rude to to wear white before easter sunday.  after easter sunday you could wear as much white as you wanted to, until labor day of course.  not many people follow this rule today, however, i am not a huge fan of wearing light colors during the winter, especially jeans or bottoms... i think everyone can agree with me on that one.  so anyway since easter has come and gone i decided to break out my adorable white denim jacket today.  :-)

check out these awesome trends for this season :-)

not a fan of white pants? try these pastel options

pretty nails
super cute 50s style dresses
gotta love cute scarves

and lets not forget a good pastel bag :-)
