Blood Orange Hibiscus Margaritas

I have a serious craving for blood oranges during the winter months. I love them as snacks, on desserts, and in salads. In honor of National Margarita Day, I decided to share my love for blood oranges and make some yummy blood orange hibiscus lime margaritas. 

This margarita recipe is a little different than your traditional margarita because it uses fresh blood orange juice and hibiscus-lime soda. The hibiscus adds a floral essence to the traditional margarita. The sweet and tart flavors are perfect for any occasion. Check out the recipe below.

A splash of hibiscus lime soda ( preferred brand Joai)

Winter White and Mulberry Crush

Happy Tuesday and Happy Valentine’s Day! I don’t have any special plans this year for Valentine’s Day so I’m taking my mom out for dinner. It will be just us girls!

I’ve never been a huge Valentine’s Day fan because I think it’s important to celebrate the people in your life every day.

But there is always an occasion to get dressed up and make yourself look great. I brought this white dress in December for a holiday party. I love the way winter white just pops and I think every woman should have this as a key piece in their wardrobe.

I decided to pair this dress with simple accessories like this lipstick from Nars and this bib necklace. The bold burgundy colors are a great way to add pops of color to this class white dress without over doing it. 



Life Lately

Lately

You’ve probably noticed I’m been quiet around here lately. I published my last blog post in January. My life lately has been a little crazy lately with managing my full-time job, finishing up grad school and trying to fit in some me time. 

I love blogging and this space is a place for me to express my creativity. 

I have 10 weeks left until I’m done with grad school! Can’t wait! I’m really looking forward it to because I have a new project that I’m working on that I’ll to reveal to you this summer. 

In the meantime, I’ve got some exciting new content to share with you on here.
