NYE

LOLLI-POP, FIZZ & CLINK | NYE DRINK FOR KIDS

There is nothing fancy about this drink, but it sure was fun for my 4 year old to make. Any chance for that girl to get her hands on a lollipop… sheesh!
 What you need:
– Lime (for “salting”, but really sprinkling the rim)
– Sprinkles
– Sparkling juice of your choice
– Lollipop of your choice
– A fun drink stirrer or straw

CHAMPAGNE SLUSHIE + DIY DRINK STIRRERS

What is NYE without a cocktail? A slushy to get sloshed perhaps? And what is a cocktail without a fab little drink stirrer? Don’t worry! We have you covered. These take no time to whip up, just a little planning ahead. 

You will need: paper straws, ribbon, washi (optional), tissue paper and scissors. I fell majorly in love with the Christmas gift wrap from Sugar Paper for Target, so that is what I used! 🙂

   Now for the drank recipe!

(fills 4 champagne flutes)
– 1 package of strawberries. I used fresh, but you could definitely use frozen if you are pressed for time.
– 1 quarter lime
– sugar ( I used coconut sugar)
– CHAMPAGNE!!
Simply puree the strawberries with half of the champagne bottle. Pour into ice trays and freeze! Then, blend them again after they are frozen with the remaining champagne. Add a squeeze of lemon and about a teaspoon of sugar to taste. Pour and enjoy!!
Drink responsibly friends!

NEW YEAR’S EVE LOOKS| ALL UNDER $100

Who is going out on NYE? Raise your hand if you wish you were…(I am totally raising my hand right now). There is something so fun, comfortable and sweet about staying in and sipping mocktails with your kiddos in your pjs while garnished in all of the tacky New Year’s $1 bin items. However, it has been quite a while (basically since our baby boy was born, which was 7 months ago) since my husband and I have been out on an actual date. You can imagine how much I am fantasizing about the one night where wearing sequins head to toe is acceptable. Here are a few looks that I would definitely feel comfortable wearing out. Somewhat sexy, but something that my “mom bod” would feel comfortable in.
ASOS
 This beauty of a playsuit would look stunning with a sleek black (or navy) blazer. I think it would class up a piece that is on the short side and shows a little more cleavage than normal. 😉
I have been DYING for an ostrich feather skirt, or even a fringe skirt (loving this one), and this one seems to fit the bill. Can’t get enough white, ya’ll!  😉
If you have a little girl, this is just too cute to pass up!
Happy New Year everyone! We hope it is a fun and safe one for you!! We are definitely looking forward to 2016!
BTW, have you purchased your NYE tats from our shop yet? Hurry!!
