A Grand O' Time

Today I'm bringing you a fun little drink recipe with Grand Marnier Canada! They sent me a beautiful package equipped with two glasses, a copper drink shaker, and a bottle of their orange and cognac liqueur.  Along with this package, which I should mention had my name on the box (OMG!) was a recipe guide to a bunch of different cocktails to satisfy any occasion you celebrate!

Today I'm trying out their "Grand O" cocktail; a fresh and fruity drink!

What you'll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier Spirit
  • 2 oz. Orang Juice
  • 2 oz. Soda Water
  • Raspberries
  • A squeeze of lemon

In your shaker, mix your Grand Marnier spirit, orange juice, soda water, a squeeze of lemon juice, and ice to keep it chilled. Taking the smaller cap off the shaker, pour the drink in glasses and add your choice of raspberries for decor and/or lemons!

Scroll down for photos, gifs, and a little video.

A Project with Taudrey Jewelry

Taudrey is a Miami based jewelry company founded by Tiffany Ortiz specializing in custom pieces. At the end of June, Lauren of The Fashionista's Diary, emailed me about Taudrey. A collaboration spurred up and I'm finally sharing these photos! 

I was gifted their Fashionista's Diary set which are bangles coming in three different three different tones:  a 14k gold-filled bangle, a rose-filled bangle and a stainless steel (anti allgeric) bangle. What makes it so special is that you have the freedom to customize each bangle with a personal engravement: Roman numerals on the silver, up to 14 characters on the gold, and your horoscope symbol on the rose gold. I went with TORONTO, XXVII, and the aeries sign.

I've seriously been wearing them non-stop since I got them in July. They're simple and personal pieces that match with any look. Along with this set, Taudrey has so many more personalized jewelry to choose from and I highly recommend you check out what they have to offer!

Thank you Taudrey, Lauren, and Tiffany!

Comfy, Casual, Chic

These photos were taken at the Dazzler Brooklyn Hotel during my stay last weekend! I posted a sneaky little video on the hotel on Youtube that you can watch below. My previous post, which you can find here, is all about the hotel with an in-depth review!

For the look, it is one of my favourite go-to's when i'm feeling super lazy to put together an outfit. I love swing dress, a #WINNERSFabFinds, and how it looks paired with a white sneaker. Comfy, casual, and put together.
