friday happy hour: aperol spritz

During the winter, I shared warm-you-up boozy drinks each Friday afternoon. Well, I’d like to bring the Friday happy hour back with a summery spin! Since there’s nothing quite like a cool bevvie at the end of a long work week, I’ll share a refreshing cocktail recipe each Friday for the next month or so. Next up: an Aperol spritz recipe. This Italian aperitivo (a pre-dinner cocktail) is light and refreshing – best served before a lingering alfresco meal.

Since there’s nothing quite like a cool bevvie at the end of a long work week, I’ll share a refreshing cocktail recipe each Friday for the next month or so. First up is this sweet and light watermelon lime refresher. Best enjoyed on a rooftop patio, it’s a mix of watermelon, mint and lime with the added hydrating benefits of pure coconut water.

entertaining pick: paperless post invitations

Today’s Style at Home Twitter chat was all about summer party planning. One of the questions asked how we send out invitations to a party? Via email, in person or online invite? There was an overwhelming consensus that Paperless Post is the best way to send out a party invitation, and I couldn’t agree more. My fiancé and I were so happy with our engagement party invitation that we sent to our family and friends via Paperless Post, so I thought I’d share it here.

if I could decorate Eugenie Bouchard’s club house

I’m a pretty diehard tennis fan. I use to play in my youth, but have put it on the back burner due to my young trio of kidlets. For good luck I even brought out my tennis handbag. Below I’ve chosen a few preppy inspired items for the home or clubhouse.
