Drink It - A Grey and Stormy Cocktail

Happy Friday! I am so excited to share this cocktail recipe with you today in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and the release of Fifty Shades Darker Unrated now on iTunes, and coming to Blu-ray and DVD May 9.

Goodness knows I love a good girls night. It's one of the things that keeps me sane. Being able to hangout with friends, chat about our lives, enjoy a fun cocktail, and maybe even watch a movie together is my idea of the perfect girls night in.  Now that Fifty Shades Darker Unrated is available to own, I figured it was the perfect time to invite a few friends over for a girls night movie date complete with the perfect cocktail, a Grey and Stormy.

 I created this cocktail based on one of my favorite drinks, the dark and stormy, which is dark rum, ginger beer, and lime. But since we will be watching Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson in the second chapter of the tale that captivated the world, Fifty Shades Darker Unrated, I modified the cocktail a bit and subbed out the lime for orange and added a splash of cream for the perfect "grey" and stormy look.

See that stormy effect there?! So pretty and so tasty! So now that I have you hooked, find out the cocktail recipe below and start planning your own girls night in!

Make It - A Rainbow Unicorn Horn Donut Tower

Apparently the unicorn party fest that was Snap conference subconsciously wore off on me, because I just created two new unicorn themed desserts that are every bit as magical as you can hope for in a unicorn themed dessert. First up is this rainbow unicorn horn donut tower in partnership with Flora Craft® Make It:Fun®! A tower of donut holes dipped in colorful chocolate, sprinkled with golden star sprinkles, and a few flowers because, why not?! Believe it or not, this is the first time I have attempted a dessert tower and while I was a little apprehensive of how it would go down, it turned out to be just as easy as I had hoped!

Craft It - Felt Ball Drink Stirrers

Hey guys! It's been a little quite on the blog front for the last week because I was out in Salt Lake City for the Snap blog conference and well, I have been busy getting caught up with work after being gone for 4 days. It's like a never ending work avalanche over here and 4 days off means working double time to get caught back up. But, I am back and have a super simple but totally cute craft to share with you today.

I have been in love with felt balls for every, but aside from a felt ball garland, I never knew what to make with them, so I never bought them. But I finally came up with a few cute ideas and went ahead and bought a bunch of cute colors to craft with. These felt ball cocktail stirrers are the first up on my felt ball crafting list and as I mentioned, they are super simple to put together, but they look oh so cute sticking out of your cocktail!

See how cute?!

DIY It - Gold Splatter Taper Candle Holders

Splatter paint has been calling my name again and I just couldn't say no. Maybe I just didn't get enough painting in as a kid or something, but splattering gold paint everywhere and on everything has just been so much fun! These colorful splatter painted clay candle holders were just a blast to make and just happen to be pretty easy on the eyes and budget too!

I just love the gold flecks against the color, don't you?!
