Summer Whites

I love white any time of year but I especially live for it in the summer. For those of you who wait until Memorial Day to pull your white jeans out, welcome to summer!

Memorial Day Weekend and the "Super Elixir"

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I was in Wilmington, NC for our friends', Bobby and Sarah's, wedding. It was gorgeous and the weather was perfect. It was a great weekend!



The great weather has continued in Greenwich, where I am spending Memorial Day, and where I plan on eating at least two lobsters and a soft shell crab at the Field Club's annual cook out. My favorite! Now that I mention my glutenous diet, I should probably mention that our diet starts tomorrow. Translation - after  a mandatory vodka southside and trying every food the dinner buffet has to offer, I will try to tone it down tomorrow.

I recently ordered, and am anxiously awaiting, Elle Macpherson's new Super Elixir, a supplement that Elle herself developed with a doctor and puts in her smoothies every morning It's all-natural and she credits it with making her look and feel good. Now, I don't know if you've seen Elle Macpherson lately but it wouldn't matter since she looks just like she did 25 years ago (hence my purchase of the Super Elixir). According to WellCo, Elle's new company that is selling the product, "The Super Elixir™ by WelleCo is a highly specialised alkalising greens supplement with vitamins, minerals and trace elements to assist wellness and vitality. The Super Elixir™ powder contains a balanced blend of 45 key ingredients including biovailable alkalising super greens, Chinese herbs, digestive enzymes and members of the maitake mushroom family." Sounds good to me!



I'll check back with you guys in a week or so to let you know if I grow to be 6 feet and have blonde hair after taking the supplement. You can buy it here. Enjoy the rest of your day off!

Wedding Wednesday

With Spring and Summer comes an influx of gorgeous weddings to stalk. I just about died when I saw how stunning Poppy Delevingne looked in her custom Chanel gown. Perfection.

Artist of the Day: Donald "Drawbertson" Robertson

I have been seeing some really cool prints around pinterest and did a little digging to find out about the artist. Donald Robertson ("Drawbertson" - get it??) is the head of Creative Development at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and was one of the three original founders of MAC cosmetics. The best part about his drawings, doodles and collages is that he uses light-hearted subject matter and they're fun and colorful. Many feature pop culture moments and are very fashion-forward. I would love to snag one of these gorgeous prints. Below are a few of my favorites.

Cocktail of the Day: Tennessee Honey Storm

I'm not huge into whiskey but JD's honey whiskey is so so good. The "Tennessee Honey Storm" is the perfect summer drink. My uncle Bill introduced us to these amazing cocktails and got us these awesome ice ball molds that make huge ice balls that keep your drink cold all night. We had cocktails over at the finished cottage on John Street (the property that my parents are working on) and had a blast. Be careful because the Honey Storm is so smooth you may be on number 5 before you know it! Not that I know from experience!
 
 

Recipe
1.5 ounces Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey
3 ounces of ginger beer
1 lime wedge
Muddled Mint
Lots of ice
 


 
 On my way to the cottage - in the woody, of course!
 
 
 cheers!
 
 Tory in front of the cottage - the sunset was beautiful!

Gotta have cheese, truffle honey and sushi right??
