Sparkle & Fade

Above: TopShop jacket (waaay old but check out this fun version from Reiss), Cynthia Vincent maxi via TJ Maxx (love this green version for fall), Amy O necklace (c/o), Super glasses, Zara clutch

 

My sequin kick continues.

As does my obsession with this maxi, that I have worn into the ground the last few weeks.  

I wore this out to dinner with husband a little while back, when the lawn wasn't completely covered in leaves! Which also sums up what I did this weekend, yard work, raked leaves, got a little crazy with the leaf blower, fun, fun, fun. 

Surprising this jacket hasn't made an appearance on the site before, it was literally the first thing I bought when TopShop launched its US site. Michael Jackson meets Chanel, right?  

I haven't had the same luck with TopShop recently but I am excited to check them out at my local Nordstrom soon.

Build a Better Bar Cart: Drink it! Maple Bourbon Cider

IMG_5439

 

Fall speaks to me.

It usually says....apples....cider....bourbon. Why not? It's warming, has depth, and pairs well with the aforementioned fall ingredients, apples and cider.

Time to put your newly stocked bar cart to use and build a sweet, spicy and savory cocktail to enjoy.

Maple bourbon cider, the name says it all, listing all the ingredients you'll need (save some cayenne pepper should you so desire to spice things up).

Mix all ingredients over ice, in a cocktail shaker. Shake. Pour. Garnish with cinnamon sticks if you want them to look fancified. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Ice
  • 6 ounces Bourbon
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • Cayenne pepper
