With a recent visit to The CW’s Winging It! Buffalo Style, I shared a few tips on Summer-izing your home. This may seem easier said then done, especially if you’re living in a space where storage is prime real estate, so I included details small enough and reusable for future decor.  For helpful tips, watch my segment below:

Although most of my items in my segment were courtesy of Target, you can find the amazing crystal lamp from Lamps Plus HERE and the beautiful ‘Beverly’ prints from The Aestate HERE.

Here are a few more affordable picks to spruce up your decor for the Summer:

Happy National Tequila Day! In honor of such a fantastic day, we decided to share our jalapeno margarita recipe. If you’re up for something spicy, you’ve found your match.

What you’ll need:

Tequila Avion | Agave Nektar | Jalapenos | Limes | Lime Juice | Triple Sec | Ice | Shaker | Kosher Salt (for the rim)

What you’ll do: 

Place ice in your shaker with diced jalapeno, 4 oz. of tequila, 2 oz. of triple sec, 1 tsp of agave nektar, splash of lime juice and shake well! To get salt to sit well on the rim of your glass, instead of using water, use a lime wedge around the rim and dip into the salt.

Cheers!

Those who know me well know I can’t go a day with out coffee and if I do, it’s best you stay away. Thankfully Lavazza Coffee feels my pain. I tested out four, yes four, of their specialty drip coffee blends and had a hard time deciding on a favorite. While each had their own distinct taste, I decided to try something new with their Classico medium roast blend. Here’s how I made iced-cube coffee:

What you’ll need:

Ice tray (I love my jumbo tray that creates over-sized cubes), a pot of brewed Lavazza coffee and your freezer.

What you’ll do:

After brewing your pot of Lavazza, pour the coffee into your ice tray and place in the freezer. Once the coffee is frozen, I took it out and let it sit for a good 7-10 minutes. This allowed the cubes to melt a little and easily mix with my milk. Stir well and enjoy!

Pick your own specialty blend on Lavazza!
