VLOG #08 | 4th of July + Pineapple Mojito Recipe + Juicy's Play Date

Mike and I stayed at the Omni at Amelia Island during our honeymoon and my favorite drink there was the Cold Fusion at Rum + Tequila Experience. Basically, it's a pineapple mojito. Mojitos are one of my favorite adult beverages, so I decided I needed to recreate this at home. I got the ingredients from the Rum + Tequila Experience menu and used the measurements from Cupcake & Cashmere's Blackberry Mojito recipe. It turned out perfect and delicious! It would even be delicious without the rum for my non-alcoholic or underage readers.

On a side note, I came across the Better Drinking Culture through Instagram randomly one day which I am totally supporting. Back in my younger days, I'd overindulge but as I've gotten older, I refuse to be slowed down by a hangover or not remember everything about an outing. I am loving making my own drinks at home because I know exactly what and how much of something is being put into each drink. Just something I wanted to share with y'all in case you are interested :)

Summer Outfits For Work | STYLE

Summers in Texas last until late October (at least in my humble opinion). I don't know why I choose to live in Texas (actually I do but I digress) because I get so overheated very easily.

Summer outfits are typically skirts and dresses with breathable fabrics. I put together a few of my favorite outfits to wear, especially during the summer. I normally will throw on a cardigan or sweater at the office but left them out so you can see the bare bones of the outfit. I chose to make this video without a voiceover so I can write it all out instead of talking through... plus I am wearing my clear retainer 24/7 and I don't feel like lisping my way through #letsbehonest

Outfit #1
Marshalls Dress
BaubleBar Rose Gold Necklace | similar
Enzo Angiolini Bow Pumps | similar

I really haven't shopped at Marshalls but was intrigued after one of my YouTube besties kept talking about how fab it was... I am so glad (my wallet not really) that she shared about it because there are some really chic pieces for a super affordable price. This dress was only $20. I love the blush lace fabric and layered top. It's so girly and chic.... I bought it in a medium.


Dressing Room Update - August 2015

As Carrie Bradshaw said, I like my money right where I can see it..... hanging in my closet. The hubby and I started getting my dressing room/ walk in closet together earlier this summer and thought I'd share our progress :) This has been a dream in the making! We built our house in January 2013 and it's taken me this long to get started. I'm really REALLY picky so it's a miracle that I was able to make up my mind on what I wanted.
