There are some really fantastic flavor combinations that most people don’t consider. One of these is sweet and zesty. Not necessarily spicy like hot, but something that gives a little undercurrent of a different flavor. Ginger is fantastic for this. That’s where the inspiration for this amazing Ginger Watermelon Margarita recipe comes from. The complexity of the ginger and the watermelon play wonderfully together, and it gives a little sumtin-sumtin.

I am a huge fan of Stila Cosmetics. I use a lot of the line in my everyday makeup wearing life. While I’m not necessarily brand loyal in that “I only use XYZ brand,” there are a lot of products that I stick to. Why? Lots of reasons, but because they’re tried and true. And I know they’re going to work, and give me the look I’m going for.
With summer starting to wind down, and autumn beginning, these are some of our top picks from Stila to transition your makeup from Summer to Fall. And beyond!
I am a huge fan of canvas shoes. I feel like they’re more breathable than a lot of other shoes, and when they get dirty, I can toss them in the wash. Not only that, but they come in such great colors and super fun patterns, that you can totally have fun with your shoes, and not worry about them.
One of the great things is that canvas shoes are so super cute for summer, but really transition well to fall, too. Here are a few of our favorites to help make that transition super smooth.
There are a few things that are more enjoyable in summer. Days are longer and more relaxed. People are out and about. It seems that we’re getting together with our friends more often. The farmer’s market is in full swing, and the berries are amazing.
The Sparkling Summer Solstice has an unusual ingredient for a mixed drink cocktail – cognac. Cognac is usually reserved for after dinner, but not any more. It’s busting out, baby! This is an amazing drink for dining al fresco or a brunch. It would also be a really lovely signature wedding cocktail.
Flip flops…what’s there to say? They’re some of the most quintessential shoes for summer. They’re easy on, easy off, and perfect for running down to the beach or the pool. And much like Pringles, you can’t just have one. Nope, you need a whole lotta flip flops. But it’s okay, because they’re not usually too expensive.
We’ve gathered up 13 pairs of really fun flip flops that are perfect for summer. Most are under $25, with many being under $10. You can’t beat that, can ya?
There are a few things that just scream summer. Cute bathing suits. Hanging out by the pool. Family vacations. And milkshakes. This milkshake is special, though – it’s just for the grown ups. With a little bit of Crown Royal, this spiked milkshake recipe is sure to satisfy.
We’re doing an easy Very Vanilla Spiked Milkshake recipe, but you could change the flavors easily with a couple of simple swaps.
Summer is in full effect, and some days can be absolutely unbearable. What do you do when you want to indulge and imbibe a little, but you’re not necessarily looking for a frozen concoction? This copycat Mason Jar Sangria from Cabo Flats is just what the doctor ordered.
The best part of this Mason Jar Sangria is that you can make as much or as little as you want. No more making endless pitchers of sangria, or only making sangria when you’re having company. Now, the downfall is that like all sangrias, this still needs a little time to come together. But it’s so easy to make.
It’s summertime, and the living is easy! At least, it should be. The weather is warm, the sun is out, and all of the local restaurants are opening their patios. Oh heck yes!! And you – you need some fabulous new clothes!
This Nordstrom Mix and Match Wardrobe for summer has come to rescue you. It’s full of great outfit ideas that are going to take you from work to Happy Hour, and from play dates to date night. There’s even a $22 tee that you’re going to want to LIVE IN!
Minions are everywhere. It seems that no matter your age, you’re enthralled by these hilarious little creatures from the Despicable Me movie series. Did you know that there’s a 3rd installment of Despicable Me coming out this summer? It’s true! These handpainted Minion shoes are here to help celebrate the movie’s release!
I can hear you now. “Haindpainted shoes?” you’re saying. TRUST ME – it’s not that difficult. If you’re not confident in your artistic skills, google a picture of Minions and use tracing paper. It’s seriously so easy to make these handpainted Minion shoes.
One of my favorite parts of summer is the great fresh fruit and veggies that are available. Is there anything better than berry season during the summer? I think not! With that being said, we want to lighten our cocktails up a little, too. Strawberry just goes so well with summer, and this Strawberry Cucumber Cooler is just the thing for Spring and Summer.
We are still in Spring after all…technically. This cocktail is great for a wedding or a baby shower, too.
