The Champagne Edit :: 070717


Happy Friday! I’ll admit, this week has gotten me all thrown outta whack. Wednesday felt like Monday & that really set the tone to things.

Thought it was a three day week, it was an annoying one. My site broke AGAIN so I was unable to get my Wednesday post in. This should be completely nipped in the bud. If you continue to get an error message, please e-mail me, but it shouldn’t happen again.

On top of THAT, I woke up on Tuesday with some crazy swelling in my lymph nodes! We have no idea what caused it – you can’t even see my jawline right now! – it finally seems to be going down but any tips to fight the swelling, let me know. Y’all know I am on a huge popsicle kick so I’m going to experiment with some anti-inflammatory ones. If it’s a win, I’ll post it here! Any swelling tips? Let me know!

Other than that, we are off to Healdsburg tomorrow! We are members at a winery so we have a fun event to attend as well as picking up our shipment. SO- the more swelling I can get down today, the better. We are even thinking of spending the night there to get out of the city for 24 hours, so that will be fun.

WELL, that’s all I got today! What are you doing this weekend?!

See you Monday! For real. Wednesday too. 🙂

EAT ME }: Garlic & Herb Roasted Shrimp by Ina Garten :: My gf Hannah & I hail Ina as our queen. Basically, whatever she says goes & if it’s okay for Jeffrey, it’s okay for our guys. Whenever anything Ina shows up on Facebook, we are SURE to tag each other. Basically, we just want to be under her wing and have her teach us her ways. I saw this recipe come up on Facebook & it is on the docket for the week! It’s super healthy, easy and takes 40 mins from start ti finish.

DRINK ME }: Dos Alas by Town & Country :: I need this rum cocktail right now. Created by Casey Wallin of Decoy in New York, he wanted to create a cocktail that really showed the character of rum from geography to culture to heritage. Not to mention, I love how he garnished it with a coconut wedge AND added coconut water. This is a must for summer!

READ ME }: Julia Child Was Secretly Obsessed With These Two Costco Finds by Delish :: If we are on the topic of my love for Ina, then let’s talk it about my other woman crush/queen: Julia Child. She is another one who really inspires me both in the kitchen & in my relationship This was a really fun read & makes me want to do a Costco run asap!

BUY ME }: Good Worth x Playboy Covers Long Sleeve T-Shirt by PacSun :: It’s no secret that we are going back to 90’s & Y2K in fashion right now… and it’s no bigger secret that I am obsessed with it {80’s too}. I mentioned here that I wouldn’t be surprised if you start seeing Playboy back in fashion – this 00’s girl was obsessed with it. As soon as I saw this , I had to buy it. I am thinking this, with some high rise ripped black skinnies with either black heels or white kicks. How would you style it? I love this tee too.

DANCE WITH ME }: The Hours – See The Light [Calvin Harris Remix] :: I’ve mentioned it here but not to get annoying hipster on you guys, but I’ve been a major Calvin Harris fan since 2006 & the I Created Disco Days. In fact, he was my celebrity crush in 2007! It has been so crazy cool watching one of my favourite musicians completely evolve throughout the past decade. This remix is one he made in 2008 and it’s very much his signature style – in fact, if I listened to this blind, I would of thought the song as a whole, including vocals were his! This is a major feel good and perfect for your weekend playlist. The instrumental is phenomenal, as well! PS – his album Funk Wav Bounces Vol I came out this week & I do think it is one of his best – Listen here! Though I must admit, Ready For The Weekend will always be my all time fave LP of his.
