DIY: Wrapped Holiday Ornaments with Holst + Lee.

Last week, my friend Natalie (the creative genius behind Holst + Lee) and I spent a rainy afternoon making these holiday ornaments. It was just the thing. I’d had a pretty stressful week and making these was the most relaxing! There’s something about sitting down with a girlfriend…

The Campari Orange.

If you know me well, then you know I’m a big fan of Campari. I never met a Negroni I didn’t love, and this summer I posted a (very boozy) recipe… The Royal Promise. Every year, for the past 17 years, Campari unveils a new calendar. They only print 9,999 copies, and you can’t actually purchase it – you have to be lucky enough to be given one

DIY Holiday Photo Gifts.

When it comes to gift giving, nothing beats a homemade gift. Am I right? I think I’m right. Except when you can make something that has a homemade vibe, with a professional look and feel to it. That’s even better. This year, my sister and I decided to try something a little different for our family holiday gifts. In collaboration with Shutterfly

Fresh Ginger Margarita Recipe.

I love that it uses an egg white as it makes for a frothy, speakeasy style cocktail. If you’re not into egg whites, you can skip it… just substitute with 1/8 cup club soda.

Apple Thyme Martini Recipe.

Today, we’re making apple martinis. But not the ones you’re used to. I usually cringe at the thought of apple martinis as I think of the sour ones with Pucker. (Not throwing shade; I drank those years ago – in bulk – but my stomach can’t handle those anymore!) Today, we’re making a more sophisticated take on the apple martini…
