Strawberry Splash

Happy Memorial Day! I feel like this past weekend is the kick start to summer. This drink in particular was great for a very long weekend of get togethers…

Image

First make sure to coat the rim with sugar. This will add a little sweetness to the drink.

Ciao for now!

Paint it Gold

 

Mustard yellow is my favorite color to wear. Ever. Or considering I own four jackets in the same hue it must be close to the top. I found this Helena Sorel jacket at a garage sale years ago and I HAD to have it. Regardless of its color, aren’t you digging the fish scale texture?

Also, I decided my goal for the summer is to utilize more braids in my hair. I tried baby braids and pulled them over my head to make a headband.

Maybe later this summer I’ll try this bad boy —->http://static3.refinery29.com/bin/entry/939/350x500b/237452/braid-hair-tutorial-waterfall-1.jpg

Women in Film Chicago

I went to the annual Women in Film Chicago meeting at the Rock Bottom Brewery last night. It was great to meet the women who work in the film industry in Chicago. Of course it was even better because beer was involved! I know I haven’t made a cocktail yet, but beer will suffice for this week’s drink choice. Image

My first beer was a Chicago Gold Ale. Very good choice, and paired with some bruchetta. Yum.

Bakin’

After dabbling in compost for the better part of the day on Sunday, I wanted to be productive. And being productive meant baking cupcakes. After getting squeaky clean, I made a batch of lemon cupcakes with a light lemon glaze. It wasn’t my favorite personally, but next time I will add a lot more lemon juice to the batter for a punch of lemon.

I guess I graduated…

I just graduated from the University of Minnesota. It’s mandatory to wear the academic cap and gown and although black makes everyone look better and slimmer somehow, it can also be overwhelming in a sea of undergraduates. I wanted to have a little fun  with graduation, so found it fitting to add a touch of color to my wardrobe…

Also I should mention that Dessa was our keynote Speaker. She is a rapper with the group Doomtree. Her speech was real and raw, which made my first step into the real world much more meaningful.
