The Monday Rundown

Strawberry Margarita Popsicles: Summer is approaching and the combo of strawberries and margarita makes me dream of laying poolside on a lazy Sunday.

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20: My girl Maura wrote up this product in Lucky a few months back and I decided that I needed to try it.  She was absolutely right- it goes on light and it’s super moisturizing.  I DO need to add concealer on top since it is so light and I have a few hyperpigmentation spots that need some extra coverage but I’m really enjoying this clay-based tinted moisturizer.

Diane Von Furstenberg Harper Connect Day Bag: Genius.  Pure genius.  Diane created this bag so that you can insert your iPad into it and, by design, use it while it’s still actually in your purse.

Coco CHANEL Silver Art Print from Etsy: I’ll always have a special place in my heart for anything CHANEL after interning at New York corporate headquarters while in college.  This print is subtle yet still incredibly chic. It will live in my living room.

Happy National Margarita Day!

I hosted an event a few weeks back with Refine Mixers and let me tell you, I am obsessed with their ZERO calorie Margarita Mix (and no, they are not paying me to say that).  In honor of National Margarita Day (yes, this is a real thing), here are two yum recipes…both under 100 calories and delicious.

Classic Margarita

  • 1 part tequilla
  • Pour into ice filled, salt-rimmed glass
