The History of the hand shaken Daiquiri

Daiquiris. I love just even saying the word, because it makes me think about the drink and wanting to get one after work to unwind and celebrate surviving another work day. However, I’ve never really sat back and thought about the history of the daiquiri. So, after a quick little search I was quick to find out that daiquiris were invented in a bar in the 1900s in a bar in Santiago, Cuba by a group of American mining engineers. Interesting! They started to become more popular in the 1940s during wartime and the rest is history!

Although there are very different recipes for daiquiris, sometimes the best way is to keep it simple like the Bacardi recipe below.

  • Step 1: Moisten the rim of a tall glass then dip in sugar to rim the edges
  • Step 2: Pour over ice
  • Step 3: Garnish with a lime wedge
  • Step 4: Enjoy!

This summer, rediscover the daiquiri. Bacardi Hand Shaken Daiquiri is the perfect addition to any summer get-together — fun, delicious, and ready to pour. Bacardi Hand Shaken Daiquiri is made with Bacardi Superior Rum, tangy lime and sugar. It is a perfectly balanced cocktail that is not too sour and not too sweet. http://bacardidaiquiri.glam.com

Dressing Up My Crystal Light Green Tea with Raspberry!

Crystal Light’s On the Go packets give you the ease of a delicious and healthy alternative to soda with the same ease and convenience. They offer a variety of flavors to help keep you happy and hydrated all summer!

For the past week now, I’ve been shoving soda to side and instead, reaching for a Crystal Light’s Green Tea Raspberry on the go. As a lifelong Southerner, nothing screams summer like a glass of ice tea in a mason jar. So, I dusted off these jars that I’ve had nestled in my cabinets and fixed me a glass of Green Tea Raspberry splashed and garnished with lemon and lime. Let me say that the Green Tea Raspberry tea ALONE is amazing, but sometimes you have to switch it up and this combination has been my addiction to unwind after work and I do see me shaking this monkey off my back anytime soon!


So, if you are looking for a quick, healthy and delicious alternative to soda, you should definitely check out Crystal Light’s On The Go mix packets. I recommend the raspberry green tea. AMAZING!

A Couple Needs. A Few Wants. Too Many Options!

Okay, dilemma! I need a couple of things for around my apartment (i.e: new vacuum and new coffee table). However, there are so many things that I’ve been lusting after and all of the things I need and want are on CSNStores.com

CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find everything from contemporary coffee tables to practically every brand of vacuum cleaner you could want! However, aside from my needs, they also have a vast selection of items from this one home decor line that I’ve been stalking for months; Alessi. Hardcore lust for this italian company!


Okay, a smart decision would be to go ahead and buy a nice and affordable vacuum or simple contemporary coffee table. Unfortunately, my head is leaning toward one of Alessi Mediterraneo Household Accessories Set that would look AWESOME to hold my brushes.

Oy vey! What to do, what to do! I’ll let you know soon.

Whimsical Jewelry Organizing

I’m usually an organized person with everything being in it’s spot. However, that was not the case when it came to my jewelry. I just let it clump and pile on  my dresser. Cheap intermingling with pricey, favorites pieces nestled with a pile of earrings mixing their backings. It was just a pure mess, but now that it is in the past thanks to these whimsical and affordable jewelry stands I bought at Urban Outfitters.

All the junk and crappy jewelry that didn't make the final cup. Screws?

Interested in either of these jewelry stands. Well, click here and here to purchase!
