Today is Tuesday Tunes with a twist- it’s a documentary on gig posters, so totally tunes related. Have you seen Just Like Being There yet? If not, I recommend this for next time your flipping through Netflix trying to find something you haven’t watched. I dare you to watch it and not be totally jealous of these people’s jobs. They are making art for awesome bands and screen-printing it, no less. I always get so inspired seeing people that create their career by doing what they love.
I made this cocktail on Memorial Day weekend when we had some friends over for a pool party. It got it’s name because it’s super refreshing and who doesn’t love Outkast’s So Fresh, So Clean?
For each drink, muddle a bunch of cilantro and cucumber in a shaker. Add ice, 1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice, 1 oz of gin, and 1 teaspoon of simple syrup (add more to taste- I don’t like my drinks very sweet but other people were adding more to their’s…) and give it all a good shake. Strain into a glass over ice and add some soda water. Garnish with cilantro and sliced cucumber.
This week for What to Wear, we are going on an ice cream date. I’ll be honest- going to get ice cream for us is more of a “holy crap it’s 115° and I will die if I don’t have some ice cream” than a proper date, but let’s just say this is what I would wear.
Today I’m so excited to be featured on Cut Out + Keep as a DIY Fashionista. Cut Out + Keep was one of the first craft blogs I discovered when I first started becoming obsessed with reading blogs, and I was over the moon when Cat contacted me for this feature. I’m sharing a DIY for a super easy collar necklace if you want to check it out!

Sometimes it’s good to remember to stick your neck out and do things that are out of your comfort zone like talk to strangers and make new friends or take pictures of yourself in outfits even though some people find that weird :) I’ve had a lot of reminders the past couple of weeks of the rewards that come from doing new things and what better dress for these times than one covered in giraffes?
