Watermelon Martini Recipe.

When I was in my early twenties, my friend Kristen used to make us the most incredible watermelon martinis for book club and girls ‘nights. The recipe is pretty easy and yields a cocktail that is insanely refreshing and delicious. Her original version called for two parts vodka (to one part watermelon puree + one part watermelon schnapps)

I’m always hunting for dresses with unique, special touches that will stand out without breaking the bank. Too many summer weddings + parties! This dress, from Topshop is just so lovely. I love the 3-dimensional lace work, vibrant poppy hue and  deep v-back.

I’m a huge, huge fan of Neulash (I’ve been using it religiously for two months and my lashes are so much longer!) This (part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) is an amazing deal (a savings of $95.) One for home, one for travel. More beauty deals here!

bling, bling

I have such a massive weakness for tiny, whimsical studs. This pair of banana studs (from Kate Spade) is no exception. Pairing glossy yellow resin with teensy crystals, they are so little and so cute.

I am completely and utterly obsessed with Mi Golondrina‘s gorgeous tops + dresses, ever since learning about them from my friends at A Piece of Toast. The most amazing embroidered pieces, all handmade by artisans in the villages of Mexico.
