I posted this drink a couple of weeks ago and received so many questions about it (which I loved), so I thought I would share the recipe with all of you today! This is the perfect summer drink since it’s so refreshing. This drink is a low calorie drink option, which is another plus. I love light/fruity drinks for summer, especially while laying by the pool or hanging out at a BBQ. This one is so easy to make and only requires a few ingredients!

What you’ll need to make an Apothic Rosé Grapefruit Spritzer
One chilled bottle of Apothic Rosé (I purchased this one at Costco for under $15)
Gin or vodka if you want to add more alcohol
1 grapefruit cut into sections
2 cans of grapefruit La Croix sparkling water
Raspberries, rosemary, or cherries for garnish (I used raspberries and leftover grapefruit for mine)
If you want to get real fancy, you may prep your glass by running grapefruit around the rim and put the rim in sugar. You then add ice (I used anchor ice molds from Williams Sonoma to add detail to my drink) and add the Apothic rosé. I used about five ounces of rosé, but it’s all up to how much you want. I then added about 3 ounces of grapefruit La Croix. As the final step, I squeezed a section of grapefruit into the spritzer and garnished the glass by putting raspberries into the drink and put a section of grapefruit on the rim.

I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy making this spritzer, I know it’s definitely one of my favorite drinks now!
Cheers to the weekend and surviving another work week! This week was more than productive with work and getting ready for a busy weekend. We will be going down to Sedona after work tonight to have dinner with my parents and aunt. On Saturday we are heading down to hot and sunny Phoenix to celebrate a friend’s birthday! I will also be doing a shoot down in Scottsdale at one of my favorite resorts. It’s full of bright colors and cacti so stay tuned!
In honor of going to the desert this weekend, I thought I would share my favorite summer dress from Francesca’s! During the summer months, I’m constantly wearing lightweight dresses, especially this one from Francesca’s. Pastel pink is a major trend this spring and summer and always catches my eye while shopping. I love the crochet detailing on both sides because it gives this simple dress character. Since I live in Arizona, I am always looking for breathable mini dresses to avoid added clothing. You can either dress this outfit up with wedges and a long necklace like I did or dress it down with flip-flops and a floppy hat. This dress also makes the perfect vacation dress and can be paired with bright earrings and a bright clutch to create a tropical look. This dress can be styled to fit any summer look and it’s under $50! I am also sharing some of my other favorite summer dresses underneath this post.

I hope you all had as relaxing of a weekend as I did! We were supposed to go to the lake or Sedona for the weekend, but we decided to stay home and enjoy Flagstaff. We are always on the go and constantly visiting places so we decided to finally enjoy a weekend at home. We went out to eat twice at two of our favorite restaurants, watched some college baseball, went and saw Pirates of the Caribbean, and went hiking. It was great enjoying the beautiful weather and exploring some of our favorite places around town.
To shake the Monday blues off, I am sharing one of my new favorite off the shoulder tops from Shein. I am loving ruffles lately and this ruffled tops is already one of my favorites. It can be worn three different ways, but since I am sharing this look for summer, which is coming up soon, I decided to wear it completely off of my shoulders. The material is very thin (not see through though, which is always good), but so breathable for summer. This top definitely runs big so order a size down. I ordered a medium and it feels a little big and longer than I would have liked, although I will definitely get great use out of it. This top would also look very cute with white jeans and sandals. The best part about this top is that it’s only $16!! That’s not a typo either.

Woo hoo, it’s the weekend and I am so excited. I apologize for being so MIA on the blog this past week, I am still getting adjusted to my new job and it’s very time consuming. I have also been working to get everything ready for collabs I have coming up, yay! I promise I will get more organized and stay on top of blogging though so I don’t disappear on you all. I am thinking about doing a blog post on how to stay on top of blogging with a busy schedule and tips to avoid being stressed out about blogging. Blogging is supposed to be fun and it’s definitely my favorite hobby, but sometimes I get stressed out about the little things and have to remind myself that this is supposed to make me nothing but happy. Stay tuned for tips and tricks for blogging, I’ll put something together over the weekend for next week!
Today I am sharing my F A V O R I T E linen dress. I have never been a fan of linen dresses because I always thought they were for older women and thought they weren’t flattering. Well, I was wrong. I caved and bought my first linen dress. Well, my mom actually bought this dress and I “borrowed” it from her and I don’t think she will be getting it back soon. One thing I love about linen is that it is so lightweight and breathable, which is especially needed during the summer months. Some summer dresses make me hot because they aren’t breathable, but this dress is the exact opposite. I wore it home on the plane from Florida and it was the comfiest travel outfit, it will definitely be my go to whenever I go somewhere.
This dress can be worn as a cover up for the pool or beach, which is also great for summer. Just throw on a pair of flip-flops and a floppy hat and you are set to go. It can also be dressed up with cute wedges, a crossbody, and jewelry, which is how I styled it for the pictures. The only downfall with linen is how wrinkled it gets because I ironed this dress right before taking these pictures and I sat down for five minutes and it was already wrinkled when I stood back up. But, I highly recommend in investing in a linen dress for summer, trust me, you won’t regret it! I linked my favorite linen dresses at the end of this post.

I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend! I’d first like to start by saying thank you to all of the men and women who died fighting for America. We are all here today enjoying our freedom because of the sacrifice made by so many heroic individuals. So thank you to the men, women, and families who have sacrificed their lives for this beautiful country.
Today I am sharing five memorial day outfits all paired with white jeans. I’ve paired five of my favorite red white, and blue tops with white jeans and either wedges or flip-flops.
