Hello, Sweet Friends.  Have we got an important post for you today! We actually cannot wait to share our recipe so will keep the talking MINIMAL.  You do, after all, have to freeze that watermelon AND rose.  Ding ding, this here is a recipe for Frose.  So that you can drink Frose all Day with Bae.  Oh yeah, we know it rhymed, they don’t pay us the big bucks for nothing.

Obviously, no one pays us to do that.  It’s horrible.  Horribly aswesome though. Should we stop judging and just get into the recipe?!  Yeah, that’s what we thought.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bottle of Rose, frozen (slightly, this won’t freeze all of the way)
  • 1 Watermelon, blended and frozen (easiest way is in ice trays)
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces simple syrup (IF you want, we don’t usually add it)

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients together
  • Serve in cute glasses, while still frozen with any fruit of your choice and a side of lime
  • Frose all day, with bae

Enjoy!

XO

Michelle & Samantha

    Purses.  They are the window to a woman’s soul.  Is she fun?  Is she simple?  Is she bat shit?  Yah…a purse can tell you a lot about someone and even more so is what’s inside that purse!!  For some reason we used to switch bags and it would take forever to sort out the stuff from one purse to another and so on.  We have simplified our lives a touch and found some great tricks to keep purses tidy.  This week we are totally obsessed with what’s in our purse.  Shall we??

    Michelle dumped hers out and this is what we found…  A Chanel card holder for just the essential cards she needs on a daily basis. Not that her visa number isn’t ingrained in her brain…  Then her two fave go to’s right now that we are totally obsessed with.  A clear MAC lipgloss for day to day and then a Matte red Louboutin lipstick for fun days and nights out.  You wanna switch bags?  No problem, she keeps all these petite items together in a Louis Vuitton cosmetic bag.  So, all that needs to be swapped is that!  Easy, right?  Inside the cosmetic bag you’d find mints, headphones and of course, this Bvlgari Monica perfume.  the perfect size for a purse!

    Moving on over to Samantha’s purse, we have found some real treasures here as well.  First and most likely most importantly, her Chanel change purse.  Who on this Earth likes their change just roaming free at the bottom of the purse? How about rattling around in their wallet?  Yeah, that’s right.  NONE OF US.  Thus, the almighty and all-necessary change purse!  Next, obviously we cannot handle dry hands around these parts.  Everyone knows how much we travel and thus, everyone knows how DRY our poor little skin gets.  We won’t have it. So, we problem solve on our own.  Never will you miss out on soft skin again.  Speaking of dry hands, does ANYONE like dry lips either?!  That’s what we though.  So La Mer, show us the way to lips that don’t crack, please and thanks!

    What sorts of goodies are you carrying in your purse?!

      We are always obsessed with bags but instead of obsessing over a new one each week, we’ve decided to go easy on our readers and do it seasonally.  So, here we are in the middle of summer.  And here are the CCL girls obsessed with bags.  What does that give us?!  Our very first summer bag obsession.  How excited are we?!  On our end, we are probably more excited than you and we know it.  Should we just dive into which bags we are storing our mass amounts of useless stuff in this summer?!

      First up, well sort of.  It’s more like a three in one here. White bags. Obviously, it’s summer time. Why wouldn’t we obsess over white bags?!  Clearly, we are strong believers in seasonal colours: spring/summer = white, fall/winter = black.  Here we are in the summer showing you some of our top white bags.  Celine, Chanel, and Prada.  To be honest, shopstyle didn’t have the Prada bag we love the most that’s pictured below.

      Second, convertible bags?! Whatever will they think of next?  Here it is, the All-Saints convertible bag.  Want a backpack? Sure, no problem.  Want an over the shoulder strap? Yup, we’ve got that too.  Seriously, how freaking amazing is a bag like this? #amazed

      Third, blue Celine.  The most perfect bag to bring with you anywhere.  Perfect for a weekend getaway, that lounge day at the pool, or even if you’re brave enough to bring it to the beach and risk getting sand in it.  We are barely brave enough to go into the water at the beach so you’ll find us using this bag poolside.  Or for a quick trip!

      Fourth, this cute little black clutch.  Okay fine, seasonal doesn’t necessarily mean light colours.  Really, if you’re going out at night odds are high, especially if you’re anything like us, that you will go for that black jumpsuit or romper.  Did we nail it?! Go for some light pink or red lipstick.  Whatever, this black clutch is cute and you know it!

      What summer bag are you obsessing over?!

        Weekend trips in the summer are essential.  East coast…west coast, doesn’t matter – there’s plenty of options of where to go and what to see.  BUT, that’s not what we are focussing on today.  Today we are talking about how to make those weekend trips a breeze and as easy peasy as possible.  We love them and want more of them so to make it simple makes it easier to do more of them!  Let’s see how two A-type individuals have minimized their bags and maximized their time away!

        First, two dresses.  That’s it.  That’s all you need.  Almost.  A cute white dress and a cute blush dress are really all you need and you’re good to go.  You can wear either of them during the day with your Adidas Stan Smith sneakers or you can dress them up with casual heels in the evening.  That’s all!  We also love our Chanel wallet purse for weekend trips so that all our essentials fit in perfect and you can wear it cross body during the day or clutch style at night.

        Next, the little things.  It always feels like there’s so many little things needed for a long trip and just as many for a weekend trip.  So, all we did was take those essential items and minimize them.  We use a sheer pink gloss all day and all night when we are away.  We also use small sample size perfumes and never go anywhere without our Touche Eclait.  We put all our little essentials into our cosmetic bag so that they are easy to find and not buried at the bottom of our bag.

        Finally, the simplest things…  We love lace bras and barrettes for short weekend trips so that they are easy to fold and sexy if the mood suits.  We also depend heavily upon our Louis Vuitton square scarf.  It acts as a shall so that you don’t need to pack a bulky sweater or cardigan and it acts as another layer if you want a splash of colour with your two dresses.

        Packing list?  1 weekend, 2 dresses, 1 runner, 1 heel, 1 purse, 2 underwear, 1 bra, 1 scarf, some cosmetics and a PASSPORT and you’re off for the weekend with the most essential packing program!

          Coffee and tea are literally how we get through our days.  Lattes to start our day and baileys in our tea mid day.  True story.  Don’t tell our bosses!  We love how relaxing it is to just sit with your coffee or tea mug and have a nice big sigh and a moment to ourselves in an otherwise hectic and demanding world.  That being said, we are obsessed with accessorizing almost every aspect of our lives, so why should our tea and coffee rituals be any different?!  Let’s see what coffee and tea accessories we are obsessing over this week…

          First, you wouldn’t just use any old handbag with a gorgeous dress and you wouldn’t pair crappy shoes with a cute outfit, so why would you make your tea in an old kettle?!  Out with the old and in with the new!  We are obsessed with this bright red KitchenAid tea kettle.  We love the pop of colour in the kitchen and we love that it looks so good it doesn’t need to be kept in a cupboard hiding because of how ugly it is!!

           

          Second, what’s a coffee or tea without the accessory of a nibble?  Don’t lie, you know that you like a little biscuit, cookie or macaroon with your morning bevie.  We all do.  Are you kidding that you don’t wanna dunk a chocolate coated wafer cookie in your coffee or tea?  Yah…you’re only fooling yourself.  We are OBSESSED with his Tom Dixon copped biscuit server.  Even Tom Dixon can admit that coffee and tea need the accessory of food!

           

          Third, everyone needs something reliable to steep that tea with.  We love funny tea infusers.  This sloth is a perfect example.  Slowly steeping your tea.  There’s so many other great options as well.  Great options like the flamingo tea infuser pictured below.

          Fourth, who doesn’t need something to scoop out that precious tea and coffee with?! Yeah thats what we thought.  There’s nothing worse than using a regular old spoon.  BORING.  Let’s go with prettier ones like the gold one we’ve found below.  Obsessed much?!

          Enjoy those coffees and teas with some new found accessories.
