A FALL COCKTAIL

WITH HOMEMADE VANILLA WHIPPED CREAM


Today was National Mulled Cider Day and I couldn’t help but make a yummy fall concoction to get us in the mood!!! We have been so lucky to actually feel some of the fall weather here in Florida! Lately, it’s been amazing, I’ve seen pumpkins, Halloween decor, (which I just put on my porch today, let’s hope they pumpkins don’t rot too soon cause it’s such a gross thing when it happens!) and a twinge of changing leaves! 

I’m so excited for the change in the season and I can’t wait to share this buttery cocktail with you!  I wish I could have made an amazing story about how we went to an apple orchard and hand-picked the apples to then make the cider but I live in Florida so that is far and few between.  Instead, I grabbed a 1/2 jug of cider and made the rest up as I felt it should be… A drink to warm your bones and delight your senses.

Here is my take on a sweet fall dessert drink and I’m calling it “The Autumn Cottage Getaway” I hope you like it!  I’ve also put some lovely items below to help you get cozy this season! 

P.S. I found a set of four solid copper mugs (pictured) for $20.00! If you love the copper mug I used, you can find them here.

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Just a smudge.... Have you ever used sage/smudge sticks to clear out negative energy? I know it sounds crazy but I absolutely swear by this method!!! Sometimes you just need a smudge, ya know?! P.S. you can now shop my looks and decor via @liketoknow.it

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!

  • ✨Happy NYE!!!✨This year was tough, not gonna lie! We got our new white lab Luna in the beginning and Hurricane Michael in the end and there were many other events in between. Let’s just say that I’m ready for the new year and I look forward to new memories! With all that being said I am also very thankful for this past year because it took me out of my comfort zone and made me realize what’s important and how to prioritize my life! I’m also very thankful for all of you for following me, commenting, liking, and supporting me. I hope y’all have a most memorable night filled with friends and family and stay safe!! See you next year! ❤️😉🎉 #forever21xme #freepeople #happynye #happynewyear2019 #cheers
  • Cheers to the weekend! 🥂Currently contemplating whether I should take down our Christmas decor or leave it up til New Year’s Day. What are your thoughts on this? I need some advice 🙃
