Summertime is here, the sun is bright and the flowers are blooming filling the air in the city with fresh smells. While browsing around the wide internet for the perfect cool down snack, we stumbled across these beautifully colored and delicious popsicles from Endless Simmer. Here’s what you need to create this wondrous treat:
12 oz. pineapple ( about half of a large pineapple)
3 oz. raspberries (about 13 regular-size raspberries)
4 oz. vodka
2 oz. Pama Pomegrante liqueur
(makes 10 popsicles)
1. Place the pineapple and vodka in a food processor or a blender and process until pureed and well blended. Set aside.
2. Place raspberry and Pama Liqueur in the food processor or a blender and process until pureed and well blended.
3. Pour 1/2 oz of pineapple mixture into each popsicle well, then pour 1 oz of rasberry mixture on top of it. Fill remainder of the popsicle wells with pineapple mixture. Use the narrow handle of a spoon or fork to gently drag raspberry mixture through the pineapple mixture and against the walls of the mold for a soft swirling effect.
4. Place foil on top of popsicle form and cut a tiny hole in the center of each well. Stick popsicle stick through the hole. Freeze for at least 6 hours or until frozen solid. To release popsicles, run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for 2-3 seconds.

We are absolutely crazy for the gorgeous, beautiful and fun little painted paper flowers. Put them in your hair, hang them up and stick them on a gift for a friend to spread the spring cheer around. Here’s a little how-to on how to make these floral friends.
To start, you’ll need:
acrylic paint or watercolors (in colors of your choice)
Step One: Painting is a girl’s best friend.
Wet your paintbrush with just a touch of paint on it and lightly wet the coffee filter around the edges. Add color as you see fit. Tip: The more water you add / the more you dilute your paint, the more of a water-colored look you will achieve. Try to pick up different hues on your brush at one time as it will give you splotches of paint on your filter while painting (oh-so-pretty!).
Step Two: Sittin’ Waitin’ Wishin’
Wait for the filters to completely dry.
Step Three: Add some bling.
After our filters were completely dry, we went through with a smaller brush and painting metallic fold details on the filters for a little extra fun.
Step Four: Fold up and fix up
Take three filters and fold from the center making a flower-like shape. Then with a brass brad, fasten each point of the filters together then fluff! Voila, you now have a gorgeous party decoration to wow and delight. Create a garland, add to an hors d’oeuvre table or place one in your hair for a romantic picnic date!
Oh yes, the day we have all been waiting for. The day we get to all take a small step back and give a warm and loving ‘ thank you, i love you ‘ to all the ones we care for in this world. To celebrate, we created a few projects for you to make on this special night of love or a cocktail to shake up with your special b
What you need: 1 tbs lemon juice | 1 tsp grenadine | 1 oz cherry brand | Champagne | Fresh cherries, for garnish
How to: Shake grenadine, lemon juice, and brandy with ice and strain into a coupe. | Fill with champagne and garnish with a fresh cherry. — we mysteriously misplaced our cherries so went with some ripe raspberries we had on hand. still cute, red and oh so valentine.
What you need:
Shake your Sharpie for a few moments and test on a paper towel or scrap paper to measure flow of the pen. Write or draw a little something special for your valentine. Then, pop your new sweet mug into the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Afterwards, take your new mug out and let it cool completely. Voila! A special little something for the one you love.
How to: Using a pencil, draw a heart in the middle of the tote (or anywhere you prefer!). Paint the heart with the gold paint to make sure all empty spaces will be filled after the glitter is applied. Tip: place a paper towel inside your tote as the acrylic paint will seep through the fabric a bit.
Once the paint has dried, apply mod podge to the gold heart with a paintbrush and quickly poor a generous amount of glitter onto the wet glue. Wait about 15 minute, shake off the leftover glitter and there you have it! A beautiful on trend tote to keep or gift. (Tada!)
Happy Valentine’s Day Starlets! xo.
