TRENDING- Biker Shorts

A trend I can get on board with. This style is so comfortable, fashionable and affordable.

1// The perfect grey color to match it all 2// This pale pink is such a good color for your summer glow 3// Camo is my guilty pleasure- it matches really any basic tee you own 4//   LEOPARD print is the trendiest pair we have here. This pattern is blowing up and I do not see it ending soon 5// Black and White Leopard again, this pattern can’t stop- won’t stop 6// NEON– last but not least, this color is thriving this summer.

 

Are you on board with this trend?

Skinny Marg Recipe

We have a heatwave coming our way and the news is saying the heat index is going to be 110 degrees. PHEW- so let’s cool down together with this Skinny Marg Recipe!

There’s no denying it that I am a tequila girl- so give me all the margaritas (and queso) and I am one happy gal. We had a dinner party a couple of months back and I was told there would be margaritas involved but little did I know they would be “skinny margs.” I have heard of that phrase but never had really indulged in a skinny marg- so I thought why not!

What makes them skinny? Tequila and water, okay and maybe some simple syrup… but really that is it!

What you will need to make a Skinny Margarita:

  1. Tequila (Jose Cuervo Especial- Blue Agave)
  2. Water
  3. Agave Simple Syrup (Found at your local store- target, hyvee, aldi)
  4. Limes

Step 1: Fill your cup with ice and 1 shot of tequila (or let’s be honest, you can add a shot or 2!)

Step 2: Add your Agave simple syrup desired amount- start with less and add more at the end if need be. (Found at Aldi, Hyvee, Target)

Step 3: Cut a lime in half.

Step 4: Squeeze lime over ice, tequila and simple syrup. Stir and you have yourself a skinny marg!

Enjoy!
