sunday bites

I'm not really a fan of eggnog, it's kind of gross when you think about it. My mom on the other hand loves the stuff. I came up with this cocktail for us so we could both enjoy this weird goo.  I make this every year and I make it strong.  Full disclosure: There is nothing vegan or healthy about this. This is like eating a slice of liquefied rum cake. 

Ingredients:
4 cups Eggnog
4 shots spiced rum
Cinnamon
Cayenne pepper
Ice
Cocktail shaker (optional)
Serves 4

Directions:
This is pretty simple as you can imagine. It's basically 1 cup of eggnog to 1 shot of rum, shaken in a fancy cocktail shaker (or not), poured over ice and sprinkled with cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne.
Drink it quick, it only gets worse as the ice melts.
All jokes aside though, I can't get through the holiday season without having this cocktail at least once. 

Happy Sunday and Happy Holidays!

get cozy

Today I'm getting cozy with Aerie to celebrate the #AerieREAL campaign and their commitment to 100% unretouched women. Take a moment this holiday season to stop and honor yourself. Nothing is more important than learning to love yourself and all of your perfect imperfections.

not all who wander are lost

Acting on a feeling of wanderlust and nostalgia, we took a journey to rediscover some of the whimsical places that we have enjoyed exploring in the past.  I packed up luxuriously bohemian pieces from Largo Drive and we took off on a holiday adventure through the sleepy beach town where we met almost 10 years ago. With the the holidays fast approaching it's nice to hit the road and take a second to breathe.
