How I Prepare for the Upcoming Holiday Season

I’m one of those people who decorates for Christmas prematurely. Yes, I put up my Christmas tree before Thanksgiving, and honestly it has become one of my favorite traditions.

How to Make an Elyx Spritz using Absolut Elyx Vodka

While I love hosting parties and even small get togethers, especially during the fall, I'm the first to admit I'm not a master mixologist. And we all know one of the most important aspects of a party is a fabulous cocktail! Cocktails set the style and mood of a party and can show the host's playfulness and of course good taste in alcohol. That's why when I host a soirée I like to keep my signature cocktail simple, but always use, Absolut Elyx, a luxury vodka. Elyx is a single estate, copper crafted, vodka that is the luxury expression of Absolut. The renowned taste of Elyx is thanks to the unique copper catalyzation process, which makes it a spirit of exceptional quality, depth and silky smooth character. AKA perfect for even the most simple cocktail recipe!

Queen Of The South and Chill

I know I'm not alone when I say I binge watch shows more often than I should, but when I find a series as great as The Queen of the South I can't help but watch a whole season...in one sitting, ya know? Especially when season two is currently on USA. If you haven't already heard of USA Network's show let me quickly fill you in. The show follows Teresa Mendoza, a women who falls in love with cartel bad boy Güero and later finds herself running for her life after his sudden death. Soon after she is taken to Dallas, Texas, where she becomes the hostage of a large cartel and is forced to enter into illegal business.

Celebrating Galentine’s Day with your besties and Le Grand Courtage

Celebrating Galentine’s Day While flowers, chocolate and a reservation at the hottest new restaurant with my boyfriend is nice (ok, it’s really nice) spending Valentine’s with my galentines is even better! If you aren’t familiar with the term Galentine’s it’s sort of the unofficial Valentine’s Day for girlfriends to celebrate on Feb 13! This year I got together a little earlier to celebrate with my blogger besties…
