Posted in Lifestyle
on November 22, 2017

‘Tis the season for all the delicious food, desserts and alcoholic beverages. To be honest, I’ve been feeling festive and getting in the holiday spirit, so I’m excited to start sharing some tasty treats you can whip up for all your holiday parties now through New Year’s Eve! Wether you’re looking for a drink to make on a cozy night in with friends watching holiday movies, or you’re celebrating the festivities with your entire family, I’m sure there is a drink recipe you’ll fall in love with on this list!

1| Cranberry Mule

I’m all about the cranberry-flavored drinks during the holiday season, so when I’m searching Pinterest and I’m looking to make an fun, festive drink—mules are the first drink that pop into my head. You can enjoy this refreshing, seasonal drink after Thanksgiving, or during a work holiday party.

2| Blackberry Ombre Sparkler 

Sometimes, I find myself interested in a drink recipe simply because of how gorgeous and Instagram-worthy that drink looks. I know, call me basic, but there’s nothing wrong with wanting to create a fun drink that’s also stunning. All you’ll need are some blackberries, champagne, sugar, rosemary, and water to make this cocktail!

3| Vanilla Cranberry Mimosa 

Is it REALLY the holiday season if you’re not making mimosas regularly? To me, these are a staple for Sunday brunch during the holidays. I love the additional of the vanilla vodka; and if you’re not into cranberry juice, you can swap it out for orange juice or another juice you enjoy.

4| Christmas Day Punch

If you need a large serving of punch that will taste good to a variety of people, you definitely want to try this recipe. The different fruits, and the mix of vodka and prosecco all create a perfect combination of deliciousness and festiveness on Christmas Day. Trust me, you’re going to want to save this recipe!

5| Boozy Mint Mocha Coffee 

 

Where are my coffee lovers at? Who says that ALL drinks have to be cold cocktails. TBH, I’ll be making this a ton over the next two months because I have a lot of friends that would enjoy this recipe. It’s perfect for a night in watching Hallmark holiday movies. Part hot chocolate, part coffee and a little bit of peppermint schnapps? Yes, please!

6| North Pole Cocktail

For the people who love their Kahlua during the holidays, here is an amazing holiday drink recipe for you. This drink is the ultimate “Drink Goals” for a night with friends. I will say that it’s definitely a heavy drink, so if that isn’t your style—I wouldn’t recommend this. TBH I’m looking to make it simply for the photos.

7| Christmas Sangria

The tried and true drink recipe that has always remained a favorite. Wether you’re enjoying this with the entire family, or treating yourself to a fun, festive mix—sangria has never failed us during the holidays. If you’re looking for a crowd pleasure to bring to your next gathering, consider this being your first pick! It won’t disappoint.

8| Spiced Winter Mojito 

Mojitos in November and December? Yes, please! If you’re looking for a new recipe that you probably haven’t tried yet, make this the one cocktail you try this holiday season. A little bit of rum have never hurt anyone, and you can rest easily knowing this will be loved by the guys and gals at your holiday festivities!

It’s no secret that I love Christmas, which is why I’m sharing some of the holiday home decorations I have for this season. I love decorating for the holidays because it makes every night cozy and Christmasy. (Perfect if you’re watching Hallmark holiday movies like me every single night.) If you’re interested in seeing a little bit of my home, and how I decorated for the holidays, keep on scrolling!

I didn’t want to go overboard with decorating. Although Josh would tell you that we have “the most decorations for anyone our age.” Clearly, he hasn’t met several of my favorite bloggers who love Christmas just as much as I do!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some a little peak inside my home for the holidays!

5 Days of #BlissGifts [Day 4]

Posted in Lifestyle
on December 5, 2016

bb113016_5dayofblissgifts

You all know a fellow #GirlBoss in your life whether she’s your best friend who began her own YouTube channel/blog; or a family member who started her own business. Whoever this fabulous lady is in your life, she deserves a few special gifts that she can use for planning projects, or taking a little time from a stressful week.

Planner from Francesca’s, $16

I know some people might be picky about choosing their own planners, but I also know many people who truly appreciate them as gifts! Francesca’s has some awesome picks that are inspirational, but aren’t too pricey They also have cute note pads and monthly calendar that are perfect for gifts, too!

Mug from Amazon, $13

The classic #GirlBoss mug. The only thing that would make it better is if it was a travel mug for when your Girl Boss friend/family member is running on the go. But who doesn’t love a mug to add to their own collection at home? Perfect for anyone who needs coffee to refuel for the day (who doesn’t?)

Copper wire bowel set from Francesca’s, $28

I love the idea of having baskets in the office for certain books and other office items because it’s a cute way to keep things on display in your office, and it keeps everything organized and sorted properly. If you rather go traditional with filing organizers, you can do that as well!

Neon pens from ban.do, $15

I love having a set of colored pens like this set from ban.do because it helps me organize things by category on my calendar. Meetings are in one color, events are a different color, reminders are another color, etc. If you want to give an awesome gift to your girl boss friend without breaking the bank—this is it!

#GirlBoss from Barnes & Noble, $10

Of course, how you can go wrong with the book that you friend or family member may or may not have read yet! If she wants to know the story of a fellow girl boss, this is the book you’re going to want to purchase for part of their gift!

Which gift was your favorite? What other items would you add to this list? Is there anyone on your list you need a #girlboss gift for? Make sure to share in the comments below!
