Bon Weekend, Plus Couture Cocktails

How chic is this “Lady Luxe” spread by Mario Testino for the March 2012 issue of British Vogue?  Karlie, donning extravagant fashions from Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Prada, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and other designers, seems to be falling from dizzying backdrops.

Couture Cocktails
I thought I would shake things up bit and post a low calorie cocktail.  This recipe is from Hungry Girl.  Have you heard of her?  Her name is Lisa Lillien and she creates guilt-free, delicious recipes and makeovers of fatty favourites.  I think she is a genius!
Pina Colada Freeze
1 ½ ounces coconut rum
1 ½ ounces sugar-free, calorie-free coconut-flavored syrup like Torani
¼ cup fat-free vanilla ice cream
1 tablespoon canned crushed pineapple with juice
1 no-calorie sweetener packet
1 cup crushed ice in a blender
Blend until smooth. Optional: Garnish with a pineapple wedgeMakes one 156 calorie cocktail.
Wishing you a most lovely March weekend!  xoxo, B
