Leo 8.6

After I agreed to write this blog, I realized I had no dazzlin’ idea why we love Leos. Don’t get me wrong; I do like them, but why? Maybe it’s because Sandra B and Halle B both are both lionesses. Maybe, as a child, I had pretended to like Leo’s just to get invited to their birthday pool parties.

I’m sure both explanations are partially correct, but I still needed some help from a pro. That’s why I met up with my astrologer, Brian, to get the Leo lowdown over margaritas.

According to Brian, Leos are loved for their ability to get things done, whether that be fame or pool parties. That talent stems from unwavering confidence, and THAT is what draws people to Leos.

Where would the world be without Leos who rock our highest, wildest heels without battling eye!

Richy T. –Leo lover.

We have mixed feelings about August. While we find ourselves happily settled into the slow-groove of summer, thoughts of future hectic schedules in the fall begin to cloud our sunny skies. But we won’t let our endless summer, end, so we’re getting lifted by this soulful summer mix. Give it a listen: that’s the sound of your worries going away.

Soul to sole: uplifting New Arrivals are here.

July aka National Blueberry Month is almost over, but not without one last hurrah! Blueberries and lemonade have always been high on our list of refreshing treats, but we found a new love when we teamed them up with a little bit of vodka. Light, sweet, and slightly tart; you’ll want to savor summer with each sip.

It isn’t summer without at least one road trip with friends! To get the good times rolling on that long drive, we put together a playlist of songs that you can jam to, no matter the destination. Enjoy the ride!

Pit-stops are impromptu fashion shows. Take these styles on the road!

Cranberry Mojito (Paired with Hadria in beige)

(Serves Two)

Ingredients

8 ounces of fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
10 mint leaves
1 teaspoon lime juice
2 ounces rum
Seltzer water

Directions

Create a cranberry simple syrup by adding fresh cranberries, sugar, and water to a sauce pot. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a simmer and then reduce heat to low, cooking for 10 minutes. After the mixture takes on a pink hue and reduces to syrup consistency, remove pot from heat and let cool.

Into 2 tall glasses, add mint leaves (slightly muddled to release flavor) and lime juice. Fill each glass with ice and add in 2 ounces cranberry simple syrup and 2 ounces rum. Top with seltzer water.
