How To Slay Valentines Day (Hint: Man Not Required)

Hey there lovely. Yeah you – I’m looking at you, girl! Guess what? It’s almost Valentine’s Day… and no… I’m not here to give you date ideas or make you feel bad for not having a man on this completely made up holiday. I’m here to tell you that you are a badass. You are beautiful. You are awesome. And so are your girlfriends. So you should throw on some lipstick and dress up (or not – a red lip in sweats is just as fab) and grab your ladies and make a cocktail and tell each other how much you love them. Because that’s what GALENTINES is all about.

Kombucha Margaritas

If you know me at all, you know I love myself a cocktail. What I love more, is creating new cocktails! I’m always dreaming up something different. Sometimes they are a total flop – but sometimes they are deeelish!

Now, switching gears to my hubby. He loves cocktails just as much as the next guy, but he loves kombucha. Love loves. He even makes his own! Which is actually a crazy cool process. It’s like we have a science project growing in our fridge haha. Anyways, the other day while I was literally melting away because it was so hot, and I wanted to make some popsicles to cool down. The problem was, I didn’t really have anything around the house to make them with. Except a bottle of my husband’s kombucha!

Now, in case you read popsicles and cocktails and you’re already jumping up to make something alcoholic frozen – it should be noted that alcohol won’t completely freeze. At least not the way a normal juice/yogurt/whatever popsicle will. That’s not all bad, but just something to consider. I enjoy making cocktails and then using a non alcoholic popsicle as a spoon/mixer if you will.

Unicorn Bridal Shower Bash

Ever since I dyed my hair purple for my 30th, I’ve been on this unicorn kick. So much so, that’s it’s become┬ácontagious. My lovely assistant caught the unicorn bug and dyed her hair pink. And that’s when the obsession took hold. We started dreaming up a party that involved the unicorn theme… but we really didn’t want something that felt like a little girls 7th bday party, ya know the vibe. Not too little girl… but just enough sparkle to make anyone relive their Lisa Frank days haha. Turns out that is a fine line. The result was the ultimate Unicorn Bridal Shower Brunch; filled with sophisticated mimosas, desserts that sparkle and a full on candy filled cake. Because… cake is always a good idea. We teamed up with some amazing vendors to pull this off, so be sure to scroll through to the end to check them out!
