Friday Happy: Where Did May Go Edition

Happy Friday y'all!
I am so late with the links and this week's cocktail as time got away from and I was kind of EMO all week. Not sure why but I'll blame it on the pre-birthday blues I guess. Which is odd cuz I LOVE my birthday but am just feeling a bit out of sorts about it right now. 

Anywho - last night I had the pleasure to catch up with some lovely ladies and attend The Land of Nod grand opening party for their new CA location!! (part of the reason I am draggin ass today)


 It was all kinds of awesome and I am full of ideas. More on that next week.

This week I shared some behind the scenes photos of what really goes into my shopping excursions. We all had a good laugh at the look on Baby Ninja's face in the photos. He's so over it.

If you follow me on Instagram you know I got to 'play makeup' with a high school friend in preparation for her wedding next Saturday. So excited to be a part of her special day.

On the C2C page I've been talking about my desire for a new do' and finally got my 'summer hair' so bring on the trips to the beach and the water park!


And if you didn't already know my birthday is next Sunday so come back Monday for deets on the Birthday Giveaway!!!

This photo has stuck with me all week. It pretty much sums up my whole philosophy and spurs me to continue on my stylish mission.

Photo: 'Like' if you believe style has no age.


Lauren from Pink on the Cheek cracks me up. I saw her last night and was reminded again why I like her so. She also nominated me for drinking award. Obviously.

Someone hipped me to Shauna Niequist's post on how to Change the Story and it completely resonated with me. How many times have we held on to who were as a justification of who we are now?

The fact that people have anything to say about a Cheerio's commercial is proof positive we are on the decline as a nation. I mean....it's a commercial people! Get over yourselves!!

If you live in or are from Southern Cali you'll totally get this. And if you loved "Clueless" like I do then you'll doubly enjoy it.

This week's cocktail is brought to you by the letter G - for Grapefruit and good!!




Ingredients
1 wedge Ruby Red grapefruit
Coarse kosher salt
6 ounces tequila
1/3 cup Ruby Red vodka
1/4 cup simple syrup
1 cup Ruby Red grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed or from a carton
1/4 freshly squeezed lime juice
4 cups ice cubes
2 crosswise slices Ruby Red grapefruit, cut into quarters

Directions
Use the wedge of grapefruit to rub the rims of 6 margarita glasses with grapefruit juice. Dip the rims in the kosher salt to coat. Set aside as you prepare the margaritas.

Place the tequila, vodka, simple syrup, grapefruit juice, lime juice and ice in a bar blender and puree until smooth. Divide the margarita between 6 glasses and garnish with the grapefruit quarters.



Happy Weekending!!
