I know I’ve raved about jumpsuits a few times already but guys… they’re kind of the best once you find the right one. They’re comfortable and easy, and yet you still look pulled together with minimal effort involved. A major win for the wardrobe of the girl on the go!

This black jumpsuit from Gap made its way into my wardrobe last month and has been on heavy rotation ever since. It’s worked for work during one of San Francisco’s random heat wave days. It worked for wandering around the vineyards on a cloudy day in Napa with BareMinerals. And most recently, it’s worked for weekend mornings when you just really need to run out and get your coffee fix.

And this pink wall? HEAVEN, right? I’ve been eyeing it up for a shoot location ever since we moved to Hayes Valley and finally scored on a cloudy day when the usual shadows weren’t hanging around. I also couldn’t resist my most blogger thing to date… a throw your jacket down on the ground and kick up your feet shot. I’ve been obsessed with my first pair of beek sandals (and already have a few other pairs on my wish list!) – the brand was founded by best friends in Southern California and are made of 100% leather and the quality is insanely good! I can’t wait to wear ’em all summer long and then for many more summers to come.

Cherry Lime Margaritas.

Cherry Lime Margaritas Recipe using IZZE Sparkling Cherry Lime.

National Margarita Day Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow, amigos! It’s the one day a year where guacamole is basically a requirement which means it’s a pretty beloved holiday around here. As someone who never says no to a good margarita, inspiration recently struck at the grocery store as I was scheming up cocktail ideas for a little Cinco de Mayo fiesta we’re having: to make the most of cherry season with cherry lime margaritas.

And let’s just consider that one of my most brilliant ideas yet. These babies are GOOD. Dangerously good (I take no responsibility if you feel the urge to channel your inner dancing lady emoji after having a few of ’em 💃🏼)

How They’re Made:

  1. Cut about a dozen cherries in half and remove their pits – add to a blender with a splash of water and blend until the fruit is broken down and mixture is smooth. Set aside.
  2. Squeeze fresh limes to produce 1 shot of fresh lime juice
  3. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add 3 shots of IZZE Sparkling Cherry Lime, 1 shot of
    tequila, 1 shot of fresh lime juice and 1 shot of fresh cherry puree
  4. Shake well and pour over fresh ice in a cocktail glass (salted rim optional) + garnish with a slice of lime
  5. Repeat and keep ’em coming!

Cheers!
