Cocktail: The Paloma.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! As promised, I’m back with a little cocktail recipe for you. Last Friday, one of my friends and I took a Britney Spears Soul Cycle class and wound up over at Cafe El Presidente in Flatiron (NYC friends – you have to go, if you haven’t been… it’s from the same people that brought us Tacombi and the tacos are SO good!) I wanted something a little more refreshing, so instead of a margarita, I opted for a Paloma.

Hair Tutorial: Game of Thrones Braid.

Guys, Game of Thrones is back, and I am super pumped about it. It felt as though as I’d been waiting forever. (If you’re not a fan of the show, I would definitely recommend checking out the first season on Netflix… you may find yourself addicted.) It’s one of my favorites… so much that I named my cat Tyrion after one of the main characters.)

Recipe: Vegan Cauliflower Soup with Truffle Oil.

I’m really excited about today’s recipe post. I’ve been messing around with everyone else’s recipes, but for today’s post, this is actually my own little recipe. I was blown away by how it turned out (I know that sounds really humble of me, but I’m still rather skeptical of anything that comes out of my own kitchen.)

Beauty Tutorial: The Crown Braid, Two Ways.

Upon transitioning down to a more flexible schedule, one of the first things I did was reach out to my friend Jay to see if he’d be game to work on a series of hair tutorials. Jay (Jackson) is my most favorite stylist at DreamDry and also senior stylist/educator and member of their creative team. The man is majorly talented. He first did my hair for this event

Cocktail: Passion Fruit Margarita.

For me, one of the most wonderful things about food and flavors is how they can evoke such strong memories. Pimento cheese makes me think of Charleston, an amazing cheese plate triggers memories of Paris and Monte Carlo, and a really great cacio e pepe makes me think of sitting at a sidewalk cafe in Rome. Whenever I go to Tulum (I say that as if I’ve been more than twice), an absolute must is the passion fruit margarita at…

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. So I decided to try something I’d heard about… bacon-infused bourbon.
