Happy Labor Day!


Happy Labor Day! 

Hope you are all taking a break! Unfortunately I'll be laboring in the library over my law books, but I'm still enjoying having an extra day in my weekend!

{Day 10} and My Christmas List

So I know every other blogger on earth has put together a gift guide, but if anyone I know reads the blog... I thought I would share a few things on my Christmas list this year. 

My Christmas List

While my Christmas list this year may not be entirely realistic, a girl can dream right? 

I always need new dresses for work (or colorful pencils skirts and cardigans). And a few bobbles and sparkly jewels to go with it are always appreciated. 

I got the naked palette last year, and I still use it every single day. However Urban Decay just released their Naked Basics Palette-- which has some gorgeous matte colors and at $27 it's much more affordable than other UD palettes. 

A cute monogrammed business card holder.

A french press and starbucks $$$  (you can't go wrong)

A new yoga mat (that get good traction)

I've been lusting after a monogram cut out necklace for years now. I think it's time. 

Kate Spade Twirl Perfume

and.... if anyone REALLY loves me they can get me the Nikon D3100 I've been lusting after. 

What's on your christmas list?


songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyped, mad

I have a pretty eclectic taste in music-- in that I don't know a lot about the music scene, and I pretty much only listen to the songs on my favorite top 40's station. There. I admit it. I have lame taste. Judge away. 

I generally listen to music when I'm getting ready in the morning (while my emotions generally run through the stages of grief because I have to get up from my comfy bed and go to work), right now I'm all about southern rock from the 70's. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band and the Allman Brothers.

Then I get in the car and listen to Christmas music or top 40's. 

Then I listen to CNN all day. I know it's not music, but I feel its necessary to include. 

Then I listen to All Things Considered on NPR as I drive home. 

So that's my musical taste of the moment.

{Friday Cocktail} Fourth of July Addition

It's that time of year again. As you break out your red white and blue in preparation for Wednesday's festivities consider making this festive beverage...

I mean, how perfect is that. Really. get your self some star shaped ice trays and you'll be all set. It's a spicy watermelon concoction that will be sure to please everyone. 

1 oz watermelon schnapps
1 big splash of cranberry juice
1 very thin sliced jalapeno (or whatever pepper you want)
1 slice lemon
1 slice lime
1.5 oz tequila
.25 oz blue curacao
.5 oz simple syrup
  • watermelon wedge for garnish

combine schnapps and cranberry juice, pour over ice in a tall glass. Then muddle jalapeno, lemon, lime, tequila, blue curacao and simple syrup. Shake and strain SLOWLY over the the watermelony goodness already in your glass. enjoy

have a great weekend y'all, and don't forget you still have 2 days to enter the Rouge & Co giveaway!
