Drink up Buttercup...

Last weekend we had a little pop up shop at my studio and whipped up a couple of batches of these Lillet Rose Spring Cocktails from Martha Stewart...they were super quick, a gorgeous peachy pink and went down perhaps a little too easy...the only hard part was tracking down the Lillet Rose (not red or white)
Bottoms up!

  • 12 ounces Lillet Rose
  • 12 ounces Ruby Red grapefruit juice
  • 6 ounces gin
  • 6 edible flower blossoms
  • Combine 6 ounces Lillet, 6 ounces grapefruit juice, 3 ounces gin, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled. Strain and divide cocktail among 3 stemmed cocktail glasses, such as Champagne coupes. Repeat. Garnish with flowers. Serve immediately.

I really love my...

I don't know about you but buying large pieces of furniture kind of gives me a headache...the idea that it needs to last FOREVER coupled with my instinct that every piece needs to be exciting! unique! pink! can spin out into crazy/indecisive territory...fortunately cooler heads prevailed (ummm...thanks Nadia) last summer when we were due for a new sofa and I ended up with this one from Restoration's really kind of perfect, super cushy, and looks good with a lot of styles of's on sale now and we had our sprayed so if the littles spill it comes right off...whew!

For your (guilty) viewing pleasure

Okay, don't judge, but I kind of love The Carrie Diaries...
a) because it fills my guilty pleasure void left by the demise of Gossip Girl (everyone needs at least one & please girl, I saw The Real Housewives on your DVR list...)
b) it has helped me remember how much I used to love Sex & the City (sweetly referential without overkill...Carrie's first Manolo's, her first Cosmopolitan) before those ridiculously awful movies killed it for me 
and c) it has exactly the kind of troubled, crushable boy who I would have died over in high school...oh Sebastian...le sigh!
So there you have it...what's on your shameful TV watching list these days?
