Can’t Stop The Weekend

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Can you believe it’s September next week? Come on Autumn! But first, we must say goodbye to summer via Labor Day.

Lets clink our glasses as we unwrap the light sweaters in the attic.

Good Morning Darlings!

With the official sayonara to summer just around the corner, Milagro Tequila – handcrafted in small batches from 100% estate grown blue agave in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico – has some summer cocktail recipes perfect for your Labor Day barbeque.

It’s Friday! That means cocktail time! Whoo Hoo! It’s Milagro Tequila Time Y’all!!

Good Morning Darlings!

After all the imbibing I did at the Ritz-Carlton last week, I needed a bit of a break this week.

But now it’s Friday!

Good Morning Darlings!

Still trying to beat the heat here in Atlanta. Good gracious, it is sultry.

How shall we beat the heat this weekend?

FFF – Is It Happy Hour Yet?

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

It has been quite a sweltering week here in Atlanta. With temps topping 100F, we are just about to melt.

I am so ready to enjoy the weekend and beat the heat.

Some icy ideas inside

Sailor Jerry

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

So excited! Just received a bottle of Sailor Jerry rum on my doorstep, just in time for this weekend’s festivities!

My friend Alex sent me all kinds of recipes, too. Looks like the bottle will be empty by Monday.

Whatever shall we do with Sailor Jerry?

FFF-The Ugly Dog Contest

Good Morning Darlings!

My friend Kate, in NYC, always has the latest, interesting news.

Apparently, there is a festival going down in California today.

What’s happening in the Golden State today?

The Real Chow Baby

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

When Caren West calls (or emails), I listen. As one of Atlanta’s premiere PR mavericks, her clients are all incredibly fab.

Then she asked me to review The Real Chow Baby. What? Isn’t that like a fast food place? Really, Caren?


Sweet Seersucker

Good Morning Darlings!

Everyone in the south knows the only fabric that will keep you looking cool and fresh in this terrible heat is seersucker. It looks wonderful on both men and women and the season for it is now.

What else would you wear to that garden party with your precious hat?

Keeping fresh after the fold…

Tax Day Delayed – Do You Need A Cocktail?

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Ugh, tax day. I always seem to owe. One day I will get a return and I will go out and buy myself some gorg Manolos.

But for now, once the taxes are in the mail box, I will have a cocktail.

Time for sipping! Or guzzling. You choose.
