Family… Planning a family vacation this summer? I am doing a packing 101 Facebook Live event tomorrow night at 6:00pm CST. You can RSVP for the event here.
Food and Drink… There was quite the argument in my house yesterday about how to make the perfect mint julep. I said the powdered sugar goes in last and Justin said that it goes in with the mint. Never the less they tasted fantastic and aren’t hard to make. This is how we made them yesterday…
1 1/2 oz Bourbon
3 to 4 mint leaves
1.5 tsp powdered sugar
splash of water
My version. Muddle mint leaves in the bottom of the cup. Add crushed ice, bourbon and water. Stir. Top with powdered sugar. Stir. Serve.
Justin’s version. Muddle mint leaves and sugar in the bottom of the cup. Add crushed ice, bourbon and water. Stir. Serve.
Health… Sometimes I am completely stumped on what to eat for a snack. This list is one I keep around when I just can’t think of anything I want to eat. It’s also a great shopping list to make sure you have them in your pantry.
Social… The Met Gala is Monday night and I will be taking it all in. That night is all about the extreme looks and really gives designers a chance to show their most expensive looks and techniques. Here are some of the most outrageous Met Gala looks.
News… The first pictures of Prince Louis were released and he is so cute. Take a look here.
Lifestyle… Yesterday was the Kentucky Derby and while we were sad to see our local Lone Sailor lose it was exciting to see Justify win his second Derby. If you missed any of the important stuff, the fashion, you can catch up here. On to the Preakness!
Home… Target is doing 25% off all patio furniture and accessories thru today. Use code SPRING
Beauty… Did you know that Ulta has a weekly sales page on their website? I didn’t either until this week when I was searching for some beauty posts. Check it out here.
