Cocktails, anyone? It’s Springtime…and that means cocktail time!! Outdoor patios are about to burst to life, and along with that, of course, comes warmer weather & a hope for deliciously refreshing drinks. But what about those days when we don’t feel like going out? And what about those at-home soirees where we want to impress our friends with a bespoke cocktail?!

Enter the bar cart. It’s become a sort of “it thing” in recent history. As soon as I found the perfect one for me, I jumped on the cart bandwagon. I think a well-styled bar cart adds an element of fun & sophistication to any kitchen or bar area, and it’s a great way to display your favorite glassware & pretty cocktail nicknacks. I love displaying my vintage cocktail glasses, favorite liquors, bitters (I love these locally made ones) and other colorful bar accessories this way. Oh, and I’ve made it a point to always keep a little bouquet of fresh flowers on my cart to make it even more special!

Here’s to Spring – Cheers!

Hello, Lovelies & welcome to March! I feel like Winter is sort of flying by this year….but now that March is officially here I can’t help but desperately wish for warmer weather to arrive right now!

Spring Styles have been all over the web and fashion magazines are beautifully displaying pastels, florals, and everything in between. For those of you lucky enough to be in warmer climates: I hope you’re already taking full advantage of Spring fashion arrivals!! For us Chicagoans it’s all but a daydream until about mid-May.

Speaking of daydreams….the outfit above is my perfect girly Spring 2013 ensemble. It all started with that amazing two-tone leather skirt, which just happens to perfectly combine two of my favorite colors. Pair that with a comfortable, light-knit sweater and a pair of wow-floral heels and I’m pretty much ready for anything. Spring Cocktails anyone?!
