A Quick Closet Clean

We all love our closets and I personally spend a lot of time in mine. But, they sure can get messy easily. Many of us are always on the go and don't always have an hour to dedicate to cleaning our closets up. To help, I came up with a super quick list of things you can get rid of quickly that will make all the difference.

-Get rid of awful store hangers! Seriously invest in velvet hangers. They are way worth it. 

-Get rid of those pieces that are damaged that need "fixed". If it has a stain or hole get rid of it! 

-Toss old handbags that you've grown out of. Cough, cough Michael Kors I'm lookin' at you. 

-This one is hard for me as I am a shoe hoarder but if they are worn out beyond repair just toss them.

Have a happy and hopefully fast Monday!

The Happiest New Year

Happy New Year!!

I basically flipped out when I realized that January 1st, 2018 was on a MONDAY! You may not know this about me but I have always loved Monday's and when the year starts on one it's the most perfect way for a fresh start!

So talking fresh starts and now that I'm back and blogging, let me share with you what I'll have going on. Fashion and food of course, and I'm really excited to bring back my Martini Moment but it's coming back with a twist...see what I did there? Since the arrival of Baby K this will be my one mom post a week. Friday's will be "Mom's Martini Moment". Because what new Mom (or any Mom) doesn't deserve a drink at the end of the week? 

I always like to reflect on the year that has passed and I'll tell you it was one like I've never experienced. What went from a year that was planned to be full of travel (Venice, Iceland etc.) turned into one full of sleeping, eating, and in the end, delivering a baby. I couldn't be more happy or feel more blessed. But this new land of motherhood has me in a different frame of mind more than ever before. I always have resolutions. I feel like it isn't New Years without them.

Here are my very simple goals for 2018:

More reasons to celebrate. Like new shoes or simply because it's Tuesday and it's a great day to be alive.

More shoes (sorry MK) 

Allow time to appreciate the little things. Like more than four consecutive hours of sleep.   

Further cultivate my love of fashion. 

More. Organization. 

Run more often.  

Be a good Mom, raise a good human.  

Date nights.  

Champagne Sunday's. 

More dog walks.  

Make more time to read.

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers to you and a new year! Let's do this 2018!

Trend Talk

Let's have a Friday martini shall we? For today's Martini Moment I'm talking Spring Fashion. I always like to get a jump on the upcoming season and what better time than to chat about it over a delicious cocktail? 

That fuzzy rodent might have said more Winter but I'm thinking Spring! It's always so exciting because well lets face it we are all ready to get out of th cold. Let's talk trends. I've already covered that you need bell sleeves and a floral bomber or two.

Now, I'm so thrilled about this next one because I loved it the first time around (well first for me)  when I was young. Guys, The Bustier is BACK! Fashion insiders have already been rocking this and an easy way to do this one is to pair with a button down or a thin long sleeve shirt. I love it because it's just a little bit different. Don't be afraid to try it, just go for it!

One of the best and most classic martinis (thank you Sex and the City) is the Cosmo. Just in case you didn't know exactly how to make this fabulous drink here is is.

The Cosmo

1 1/2 oz citrus vodka
3/4 oz Cointreau or Triple Sec
3/4 oz cranberry juice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice

Add vodka,  Cointreau or Triple Sec, and juices to your cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Garnish with lime. Tada! Perfect Cosmo.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I hope a delicious drink is in your near future.
