I love flowers, except when they do what they’re supposed to do – die. Isn’t that just the worst? So this year I decided to make the roses I got for Valentine’s Day last forever, with a simple DIY pressed flower frame. Read on for how to do it yourself!

No-Bake Mini Naked Cake

People like to say quick and easy isn’t good, but when it comes to baking it’s what I prefer. I’m the worst baker I know but also probably the largest consumer of baked goods I know, so naturally I figured out hacks to make my dessert creation and consumption easier.

Cocktail: Blood Orange + Rosemary Fizz

I have an inclination towards anything fizzy, especially in the summer. So what better way to kick of my FAVORITE season (the blog name didn’t give it away?) than with a from-scratch cocktail that incorporates all of my favorite things. Now I’ll admit, I really don’t like rosemary in food so Continue Reading

Many things are calling for celebration this month – Black history month, Valentine’s day, and many other exciting things in the works (stay tuned!).

Freebie: 3 Lightroom Presets

One of the questions that people ask me most often, is how I edit my pictures. There’s a 50/50 split between taking pictures on my phone and with my DSLR, but when I do take pictures with my camera Continue Reading

cocktail: The Tropical Getaway

Okay I’m going to come clean – I made this cocktail WEEKS ago and totally forgot to post the recipe. At the time that I made it I was craving a vacation somewhere exotic but my bank account wouldn’t allow it, so I settled for the drink version of a getaways.

Welcome to the most tropical-tasting thing you’ve ever tasted.

what you need:

  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup juiced blood orange
  • 1 egg white
  • 4.5 oz white rum (3 shots)
  • ice
  • dash of nutmeg

the how-to:

step one: add all ingredients to cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds

step two: remove ice from shaker with a spoon and dry shake for about a minute more

step three: pour into 2 glasses and serve

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*A note on garnishes: When I make a fruity cocktail I like be extra with my garnishes. For this drink I used a “pineapple leaf” and a dehydrated blood orange (it’s homemade!) since these are the 2 juice ingredients in the drink. As a rule of thumb I always garnish based on what ingredients I used.

Bookmark this recipe, because it’s going to be your summer staple once you try it. Do you have any cocktail requests? Any ingredients that you’d like to see me experiment with? Let me know in the comments!
