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.

Gorgeous Greenery

By now I'm sure that most of you have heard Pantone's the color of 2017 is "Greenery". I normally do a post about this yearly announcement but this year I'm just as thrilled as when it was Emerald in 2013. Green is my most favorite color! Even "Kale" made it's way into the 2017 Spring color palette! Which I decided to rock with a little added sparkle!  

I think it's so funny and very hipster to throw kale into spring's colors but I love it!  

I do adore a great color combo and also tend to pair on opposite sides of the color wheel. Burnt Orange and Kale are a match made in heaven. Add a little leopard and you've got a great outfit. 

I don't know about you but I for one am very excited to welcome a new year and new fashion possibilites. Here is Pantone's Spring 2017 color palette.

Who's ready to start shopping?

I've got a lot of fun things in store for you this week. Look for delicious recipes, and a very sparkly DIY on Friday's Martini Moment.

Have a great week leading up to Christmas! I hope your coffee is strong and your shopping is done!

Anything But The Blues

Happy Friday Everyone!!

We made it to the weekend! This is the second weekend that I'm not shooting a wedding so I get two days off!

Today I'm talking beauty and booze since it is after all my Martini Moment. I keep noticing that blue eye colors are back. This would be an easy trend to mess up that's for sure. So how do you know what your shade of blue is? It's all about the eye color! I've made a quick how to blue guide:

Brown Eyes: You lucky ladies can wear any blue you want because any shade compliments brown. 

Blue Eyes: Stay dark like a midnight blue

Green Eyes: Stick with turquoise

Hazel: Bright blue!

Fast Tip: You don't have to get crazy, if you want to try this trend out just wet a thin makeup brush and line your top lid with your chosen blue. Plus, it's Halloween weekend so there no better weekend than to play with some fun eye makeup!

In the spirit of it being Halloween on Monday I'm sharing a very fun and very delicious martini.

Have a super fun weekend!

xoxo
