Tasty Tuesday – Mom-A-Rita’s

Drink1

This week we take a yummy adventure  into the world of drinks!  We recently passed National Margarita day and I wanted to share my favorite way to make this drink.   I know there are various mixes out there that you can grab along with a bottle of tequila, but I have found those mixes don’t keep very long, even when you store them in the fridge.

Fabulous Friday – A Cold Cool

Snowman

I’m sure you have heard it a million times so far this week – it’s bitterly cold almost everywhere in the US!  I think I have packed on a million layers of clothing just to stay warm.  It’s times like this that I miss summer, and the smell of sunblock for a moment.  Ah, the memory of ice cold drinks on warm nights with friends laughing as the sun finally set close to 10pm (minus the humidity).  I know it can be hard to find something stylish to put on because being warm is more important.  The best way is to dress up in layers.

Weekend Adventures

I hope you had a great, safe, and adventurous weekend!  Saturday night I visited the restaurant Divan Turkish Grill.  It has a small intimate feel, hookah, great food, and drinks.  It’s also a BYOB!  You can’t beat that right?

Saturday night they had a DJ who ended up playing The Smiths after some negotiations, and a nice size group having a great time.  This is the side of Philly I enjoy.  I ended up wearing all black – black off the shoulder top, leggings, black boots with silver accessories.

I’ve had this top for years and love it.  I just wish the bottom was more fitted.  I’ve added belts to it in the past but the top isn’t cut properly for it.

This is a closeup of my necklace.  I rarely get to wear it because it’s a bit too super fancy for grocery shopping at Target, even though it’s costume jewelry.  I figured I’d break it out for a night out downtown.  Yeah, those are bra straps because strapless bras absolutely suck no matter your size.  I configured a bra to become a halter style bra and let the shown straps become part of the outfit.

My very delicious cosmo!  It’s my favorite drink.

A bit of the background of the place and my super serious conversation face.  It got intense.  haha

I hope you had some fashionably good fun this weekend!
