Mother’s Day cocktails

Hi everyone,

As Mother’s Day is Sunday and brunch is a very popular option, I thought I would give you guys some drink recipes that I love. They’re super easy and guaranteed to be a hit, so let’s get into it.

First up we have Moscato Wine Punch.

What you need:

  • 1 bottle of your mom’s favorite wine. My mom, like myself is a white wine person
  • Simply Lemonade, regular lemonade or one of the flavors. That is totally up to you
  • Half a liter of Sprite
  • Various fruits, I like blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.

What you do:

  • Get a punchbowl and fill it with the wine, lemonade and the Sprite.
  • You can put it in the fridge to chill, then add the fruit. Or you can put the fruit in the freezer and use that to chill the punch
  • Serve and enjoy!

Next up we have Peach Sangria, this is great for any summer party and this recipe makes four to six drinks.

What you need:

  • 1 bottle of dry white wine
  • 1 cup of pineapple juice
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • 3 ounces of peach brandy
  • 2 ounces of triple sec
  • 2 ounces of simple syrup
  • 2 to 4 ounces of peach puree
  • 1 Honey Crisp, Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apple. Cored and sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 3 peaches, pitted and sliced

What you do:

  • Place all the ingredients in a large pitcher and put in the fridge to chill for at least eight hours, or overnight depending on when you’re going to serve it.
  • Fill your glasses with ice and pour the sangria over top.
  • Add fresh cut fruit on top to garnish.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Our second to last cocktail is Strawberry Bellinis and this recipe makes four drinks.

What you need:

  • 3 cups of strawberries
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry Moscato
  • 2 cups of rose champagne or prosecco
  • Strawberries to garnish

What you do:

  • Puree the strawberries in a blender or food processor and strain through a sieve.
  • In a blender combine the strained strawberry juice, powdered sugar and strawberry Moscato and blend until smooth.
  • Put in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Evenly distribute the strawberry mixture among four champagne flutes and top each with 1/2 cup of champagne or prosecco.
  • Garnish with a strawberry, serve and enjoy!

And finally we have Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade. This one is non-alcoholic but you can add champagne to it.

What you need:

  • 6 medium lemons
  • 3/4 cups of sugar, divided
  • 2 cups of thawed frozen raspberries
  • 2 liters of Sprite

What you do:

  • Add 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 cup of raspberries and gently mash. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Juice all of the lemons and pour through a strainer. Add that to a pitcher with the remaining sugar.
  • Add the Sprite and stir to combine. Put in the fridge to chill until you’re ready to serve.
  • Garnish with the remaining frozen raspberries, if you want to add the champagne now would be the time to do it.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these drinks let me know how they turn out.

Until next time, enjoy your drinks and have a happy Mother’s Day :).

April favorites

Hi everyone,

I want to start off by saying happy May, here’s to a great month. And secondly, I know I’m a little bit late, but today I’m going to be doing my April favorites. I have some good things this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April Play Box from Sephora, if you haven’t yet read it I will link it below. The theme was Insta Beauty, a range of products that help you to be camera ready in no time. My first favorite is the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder. I’ve been using this since I got it, I rotate between this and my Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder, and I really like it. It does a great job of not only setting my foundation and concealer, but it keeps shine away. I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a new powder.

ASP2

My next beauty favorite is the Peter Thomas Roth Skin to Die For No Filter Mattifying Primer and Complexion Perfector. I was excited to try this because I’m loving everything Peter Thomas Roth at the moment, seriously if you need anything skincare, check them out. But I have a little area on my face that I always take the time to cover more heavily with foundation and concealer, but with this I found myself not having to do that as much. It really does blur the imperfections and I definitely like that.

ASP4

My second to last beauty favorite, and last Sephora Play favorite is the Urban Decay Hi-fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss in SPL. I loved this from the minute I saw it, it’s not only gorgeous but the scent, vanilla mint, was the scent of one of my first ever glosses and it brought back memories. Since then I’ve worn it two different ways, on it’s own when I was having a makeup free day but wanted something more than a lip balm and over the top of a matte lipstick. It was great in both applications.

ASP6

My last beauty favorite is from the haul I did a few weeks ago, which I’ll link below, and it’s the Bath and Body Works Pineapple Colada Gentle Exfoliating Hand Soap with Monoi Oil. Prior to purchasing this I hadn’t ever looked into the Bath and Body Works had soaps, but I’m happy with this one. The scent is dead on but not overpowering and it’s perfect for spring and summer.

SPH5

Moving on I have a couple of food and drink favorites. My food favorite is the Mint Chip Brownie Larabar. I always keep a bar of some sort in my handbag, snacks are important, so I like to try different brands. I like that Larabars are made with a few quality ingredients and that they have a lot of different flavors. And mint chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations so it was an instant winner.

And my drink favorite is the Celestial Seasonings Decaf India Spice Chai Tea. I’m not typically a huge decaf person, but with the extended winter we had, I was craving a cup of tea in the evenings before bed and this really hit the spot. I love chai anyway and this has now become a permanent fixture in my tea cupboard.

My second to last favorite is a couple of coins. I collect coins and currency and I’m always excited when I find new pieces. I purchased all of the coins from CoinCorner on Etsy, they are great. Definitely check them out if you’re in the market for coins. The first one was a birthday present for my dad and it’s a penny from his birth year and the second was a 1943 steel penny. I had always heard about steel pennies but had never seen one so I jumped on it and I’m so happy I did. I also may or may not have bought another penny the other day. I forgot to take a picture of it, but it’s a wheat penny from 1944. World War II era is one of favorites in history and I find things from that time really cool and interesting.

SPH9

SPH10

My last favorite is a music favorite. A little bit of backstory, I was recently helping my dad move some furniture and he had some music playing. I knew that I had heard it before but couldn’t place it so I asked him what it was and he went and got the CD case, because some things just sound better on CD, and it was Montrose, their first album. When I was growing up my dad would play this album in his car and that’s the last time I had heard it until now. Having listened to it again all the way through, it really is a fantastic album and I would definitely recommend listening to it if you never have. I know it’s on YouTube and iTunes.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites in April let me know, and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great April :).

April Sephora Play unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my April Sephora Play Box and thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Insta Beauty. It’s all about products that have you camera ready in no time. The bag itself captures that perfectly. It’s a white canvas bag with green drawstrings, purple lettering and it says ‘Make It Snappy’. The weather has also been absolutely amazing the past couple days and it gave me the opportunity to take these photos outside, which made me really happy.

ASP1

The first product we have is the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask, Seaweed Radiance Facial. This is a five minute facial that uses seaweed, red algae and lotus seed to get rid of dry skin and bring back the glow to your skin. I love things like this, so I can’t wait to try it.

ASP3

The second product is the Peter Thomas Roth Skin to Die For No Filter Mattifying Primer and Complexion Perfector. Much like other primers you put this on before your foundation and concealer, although you can wear this on it’s own, but this also helps to reduce the look of pores and basically blur any imperfections your skin may have. I’m loving all things Peter Thomas Roth right now, so I’ll let you know what I think of this.

ASP4

Moving on we have the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Perfector in #6. I’ve always heard great things about the Make Up For Ever foundations and this is in that small little section between foundation and BB cream. It’s a skin tint with an SPF, in this case of 25. Based on the initial swatch I did it appeared to be very buildable and I would guess you’re going to get a light to medium coverage. I’m definitely interested by this.

ASP5

Next is the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder. It’s a translucent pressed finishing powder that is supposed to reduce the look of pores and keep away oils so you don’t look shiny. I put this on this morning and so far I’m really liking it. Not only did it set my foundation and concealer, but I would have had no problem just going out like that and not even bothering with contour or anything else. I definitely recommend it.

ASP2

Second to last we have the Urban Decay Hi-fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss in SPL. These are new and the pictures I’ve been seeing on Instagram and Twitter of different shades are so pretty, so I was excited when I saw this. There are 20 different shades, including SPL and after this I will be placing an order. This one specifically is a really pretty light pink shade with a ton of pink, blue and green sparkles. When it hits the light it’s really something else. When I swatched it I was expecting it to be like other glosses, where it’s a little bit tacky and that is one of my least favorite things about gloss, but it wasn’t. And it smells absolutely amazing. It’s a mix of vanilla and mint, which is one of my favorite smells and was the scent of one of my first ever lip glosses so it brings back a lot of memories.

ASP6

And the last product, the bonus product, is a Miu Miu perfume in L’eau Rosee. I would describe this as a fresh scent. It’s a little floral but also a little fruity. And it reminds me of something but I can’t remember what, which is annoying. But if it comes to me I’ll mention it.

ASP7

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your April Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Summer and other bits haul

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing a haul. Over the past month/month and a half I’ve been doing a little shopping and picked up some fun bits and pieces that I’m excited about, so let’s get into it.

Starting with fashion, spring in the Pacific Northwest has been very cold and rainy it’s basically an extension of winter with a small handful of nice days thrown in so far. So when I do go shopping I’ve been buying for mainly summer and the first thing I bought is a black and white polka dot dress from H&M. If I can find a link for this and any other item I will put down below. I don’t normally wear a lot of dresses, I have one in my wardrobe that I really love to wear in the summer and I have a couple for dressier occasions, but that’s about it. But when I saw this one I really liked it so I went for it and I’m glad I did. The fit is fantastic and it’s one of those dresses that is super versatile. It can easily be worn as is, dressed up or dressed down.

Next I went to Forever 21 where I picked up two things and the first is a pair of shorts. Recently I’ve really been liking floral patterns and one of the things I like about these shorts is the pattern isn’t overwhelming.

And the other thing I picked up is a pair of white with black polka dot flip flops. I wear a lot of flip flops during the summer so I’m always buying new pairs.

Moving on to beauty, you guys know how the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet is one of my favorites, well, I went to put mine on last week and it broke. Having a lipstick break is always an inconvenience so I picked up another one.

The last beauty item I purchased is the Bath and Body Works Pineapple Colada Gentle Exfoliating Hand Soap with Monoi Oil. I cannot even tell you how good this smells, it’s the perfect summer smell. I hadn’t really looked into the Bath and Body Works hand soaps before but I definitely recommend them.

Second to last we have two practical things, both from Amazon. The first is an Anker phone charging cable. This is just the basic three foot cable, but Anker is a great brand for all cables/cords or anything else you might need.

And the second item is a wallet. I had my old wallet forever and kept saying that I was going to get a new one but never did. It finally quit and I couldn’t keep it closed. I found this one kind of by accident but it’s absolutely perfect. It’s turquoise with a gold bow and gold hardware and it has a ton of room on the inside.

And lastly we have the thing that I’m probably the most excited about in this whole haul. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but one of my hobbies is coin/currency collecting and I’m always on the lookout for new things to add to my collection. I was on Etsy looking for a birthday present for my dad and I came across this shop called Coin Corner and was immediately interested. I ended up finding a present for my dad, I got him a wheat penny from his birth year, and I found a steel penny from 1943 which I knew I had to have. I knew steel pennies existed but I had never seen or held one, so I did buy it and I’m so happy with it. I think it’s the coolest thing.

That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing hauls so look out for more of them in the future.

Until next time, have fun shopping and I can’t wait for warmer weather :).
