Cocktail: Bacon Infused Old Fashioned.

So, if you follow me on Snapchat (I’m grace.atwood) you know I’ve been all about getting a little more domestic. I’m so proud of myself. I’ve gone from being the queen of Seamless to cooking all the time and I love it so much. A few weeks ago, I made bacon jam (recipe here!) and afterward, I had all this bacon grease left over.

DIY: Spike Cuff

This past fashion week I found myself incredibly inspired wherever I went, but one of the most inspiring evenings was spent at Owen (an amazing boutique in Manhattan’s Meatpacking district, at a party for up & coming jewelry designer, DylanLex.
