Cucumber Basil and Lime Vodka Cocktail
|

*I was sent a bottle of American Harvest Organic Vodka for this post. Um, yeah.  Cucumber.  Lime.  Basil.  Each of those things screams refreshing to me.  Then put them altogether in a cocktail and of course you aren’t going to hate it.  This cucumber basil and lime vodka cocktail might just be my summer drink…

Beer Floats

Do this.  For real.  Beer floats are kind of amazing.  And this one, with banana bread beer(!) is super yummy.  I was thinking these would be fantastic for Father’s Day celebrating.  Or a man’s birthday.  Or Saturday.

DIY Painted Cutting Boards

Oh hey there.  I’m going to come right out and say that I don’t love things that aren’t entirely useful.  And this one is not 100 % useful in my opinion.  But like Kristen on RHONY, it sure is pretty (if you don’t get that reference, you don’t watch enough television).  So anywho, these are…

Best Frozen Margarita Recipe

So last summer I discovered that I really enjoy tequila.  Or rather tequila based cocktails.  I’ve never been a shots kind of a girl and I don’t think my late 30’s, with two small children, is the time to start.   And since I like the flavor of limes so much it makes sense that…

A Holiday Entertaining Tip for the Lazy Hostess
|

*This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CottonelleHoliday http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

*I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Budweiser.  I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
