Channeling Emma Pillsbury...

>> Tuesday, October 19, 2010

I am a gleek...but mostly just to see what Emma Pillsbury will be wearing every episode.  I am in LOVE with her style and I am now adding some accessories to my shop which are totally inspired by her look!

I'm starting with sweater clips...omg how much do I love these.  You can make your own super easy with a pair of clip on earrings and a little bit of chain but I am adding my fabulous fabric flowers and vintage rhinestone to the clips in my shop.

More Emma goodies to come!

Orange Creamsicle Martini

 This DELICIOUS martini recipe comes from "The Hungry Girl" website.  So many fun, tasty and easy recipes there...check it out!
Seriously tastes like a creamsicle...so yummy!


4 oz. diet orange soda, room temperature

1.5 oz. orange-flavored vodka (like Smirnoff Twist of Orange)

1.5 oz. Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup

1 tbsp. Cool Whip Free

Place all ingredients in a martini shaker, but DO NOT shake (or the carbonated soda will explode!). Mix thoroughly with a spoon until mixture is mostly lump-free. Add about 1 cup ice (crushed, if you've got it), and stir until mixture is cold. Then place the strainer on top and pour into a large martini glass. Enjoy!
