Beauty Tips For Beach Weddings

Beach weddings, much like daytime weddings, are not a time to go crazy with the makeup and prom-like hair. Keep it lovely by working the bright eyes and clean-looking skin.

Seven Tips For Going To A Wedding Without Blowing Your Entire Bank Account

Crave: Food & Wine Cocktails 2009

Sometimes, we’ll go out on the town only to spend much of the night pushing our way through piles of people in an attempt to reach the bar. Then, when we finally get the bartender’s attention, we can’t even think of a drink we want him to make. For a change of pace, we’re going to stay at home a little more often and, over the course of the year, test the drink recipes in Food & Wine Cocktails 2009. With concoctions like a five-spice margarita and something called the “Big O” designed by top mixologists, plus party food recipes, we won’t need to leave our apartment to have a good time. Well, except to stock the bar. [$10.17, Amazon]

We’re giving away three copies of Food & Wine Cocktails ’09, but you have to work if you want to know how to make delicious drinks. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, June 5 through Thursday, June 11 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!
