I made sangria for the first time last weekend. I scoured Pinterest for recipes but ended up creating my own based on what I had found. I'm not a big drinker so I made a pretty light version. Most of the recipes I saw called for several types of alcohol (vodka, rum, etc), but I just stuck to the wine. It was so easy and turned out delicious! Sangria will easily become my new go-to fruity afternoon drink for the summer!
1 bottle of Barefoot Moscato
1 20 fl oz bottle of Sprite Zero
1 cup of V8 V-Fusion Peach Mango juice
In a large pitcher, mix together wine, Sprite Zero, V8.
In an effort to make my hair healthier and preserve my color, I've been trying to only wash my hair every other day. When I first started this process I couldn't skip one day of shampooing without looking like a grease-ball, but I've mastered a fool-proof system to make my second-day hair look fresh.
The night before, I use dry shampoo on my roots to soak up any oil. By sleeping with the dry shampoo on my roots, any traces of that pesky white residue is absorbed and I wake up with tons of volume! I honestly haven't found a dry shampoo that I love yet so if you have any recommendations please leave it in the comments below!
I add a light wave to my hair by wrapping different size sections around the barrel of my curling iron (check out my tutorial of how to transform your curling iron into a wand here). I spray a medium hold hairspray all over and then comb through the curls with my fingers to loosen them up a bit. I don't like my hair to look too perfect, I prefer a tousled bed head look.
I've been making a version of this smoothie for breakfast the last few weeks. It's packed with fruits, veggies, and protein to keep me feeling full and energized. I started adding avocado to my smoothie which makes it thick & creamy - highly recommended if you've never tried it!
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 cup of blueberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
V8 V-Fusion Light Peach Mango (add to desired consistency)
Ice (add to desired consistency)
Mix all ingredients in blender on high speed until well blended. Enjoy!
I am loving BCBG Max Azria's new Resort collection! Inspired by Max's home country of Tunisia, the collection is comprised of beautiful, elaborate embroidery, shades of ocean blues, and striped menswear shirting. I'm obsessed with the blue dress above. It's made from strips of terry fabric with braided edges - the details are amazing in person! Check out the entire collection on style.com by clicking the link above!
Greg and I went to Disneyland last weekend for the first time. My coworker had 2 free park hopper tickets that were expiring soon so she sent them our way, and we could not have been more grateful! We had such a fun time acting like kids again at the "happiest place on Earth!" See my favorite memories of the day below.
