Cocktail Hour: Serve A Crowd With Screwdriver Sangria

Cocktail Hour: Serve A Crowd With Screwdriver Sangria

In preparation for my big move to Brooklyn at the end of the month, I have done a massssssive purge of everything in my apartment that I don’t want but is in too good a shape to trash, and am having a big ol’ apartment sale/giveaway extravaganza this weekend. I’m planning on serving some snacks and, most importantly, day-appropriate cocktails. I need to make something that easily serves a crowd, so I’ve decided to make a big ol’ pitcher of Screwdriver Sangria. Get the recipe after the jump! Keep reading »

The End Zone: The Top 10 Touchdown Celebrations

The End Zone: The Top 10 Touchdown Celebrations

Football season is finally here, and after an exhilarating Week 1, there have already been 42 touchdowns scored across the league. And though the NFL may have banned excessive celebration on touchdowns back in 2006, any NFL fan knows that the best part of football is of course: the touchdown dance (winning Super Bowls, mercilessly laying waste to your opponents, and tailgates notwithstanding). While players have attempted to take it down a notch to avoid fines, let’s be real – without a good touchdown dance, do the points even really count? (The answer is yes, they do.) Here are the 10 best touchdown celebrations of all time, to get you in the scoring spirit. Keep reading »

The End Zone: Fantasy Football 101

So, you finally gave in to those incessant office e-mail chains and decided to play fantasy football. Congrats! Welcome!

7 Vacation Destinations To Wild Out With Your Girl Friends

The cavalier girl clan (Leslie Mann + Cameron Diaz + Kate Upton + Nicki Minaj = stoked) in the new film “The Other Woman” (in theaters April 25th — check out the trailer after the jump!) has us reminiscing about our love (nay, dire need) for booze, beautiful men, and bonding time with our best friends, all while enjoying some amazing, luxurious destination. Yes, we need all of that, more of the time … but especially that last one. Now, where’s that suitcase?

When we plan the occasional (completely necessary) lavish getaway with our best girls, there are a few “must-have” determining factors when deciding where to book it.

The destinations in this gallery are our top picks to “let loose and get wild” with your gal pals, as calculated from the algorithm presented by the delicate matrix of factors below:

  • Booze: Let’s get drunk.
  • Men: Preferably lots, and preferably beautiful.
  • Shopping: We want to buy cool shit (ex. Co-worker asks: “Where did you get that boho chic bag?” Reply: “Oh, just from this one-of-a-kind vendor in Aruba with my best girls”).
  • Relaxation: Sun, beach, spa, all of the things. Yes, please.
  • Photo Opp Potential: Because it doesn’t really matter unless it’s all over social media, making people jealous.

10 Luxe Items You Need That Are Worth The Splurge

Alright, we all know the economy is rough right now, and tough times call for good bargains. Because let’s be real, ain’t nobody got time (or money) for a $250 blouse.

I can’t even remember the last time I paid full price for anything, with the exception of food (bargain food freaks me out a little). I learned it all from my Momma. She taught me that name brands don’t matter—that if it’s cute, it’s cute! I’ll demolish a Forever 21 in 30 minutes and come up on some of the best finds for a price tag my teeny-tiny budget can handle. You know even some of the top-rated designer items just can’t match those $15 finds.

But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized there are just some items that never go on sale, and when I try going with the cheaper versions, they never turn out as I’d hoped. With that profound knowledge, I’ve decided to lend a hand with this handy list of 10 items worth spending a little extra on. They’re worth every cent! Keep reading »
