Bon Weekend, Plus Couture Cocktails

The weekend is upon us once again.  This week seemed to fly pass me too quickly.  Perhaps it was due to having so many things on the agenda this week.  It’s my last weekend of freedom before school begins next week and I plan to enjoy every second.
I’m loving this Bardot-esque hairstyle.  It’s perfect for weekends ~ day or night.  It doesn’t require much time to create this style but yet looks chic and sexy .  What can be more perfect?
Prep strands with a volumizing spray, then wrap small sections around a curling iron to create movement in the hair. Before pulling hair into a low bun, backcomb the crown section and be sure to leave out a few face framing pieces. Pin the leftover layers back loosely.  The more tousled, the better!

Couture Cocktails

1 1/2 Grey Goose La Poire Vodka

3/4 part Limoncello
1/2 simple syrup
1 part orange juice
mint leaves and dried pears for garnish

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add all of the ingredients and shake vigorously until the outside of shaker is frosted and beaded with sweat.  Strain into a rocks glass rimmed with sugar {optional} and filled with crushed ice.  Garnish if desired.

Wishing you a most lovely mid-January weekend!  xoxo, B
