My Milly

Last Monday I went to the very first Minnesota Blogger Bash. It was one of those rare times that I got to go to St Paul. Having lived in Minneapolis the whole time I’ve been in Minnesota, I rarely go to visit the other twin. The best part about going to St Paul and the meet up was car pooling with Tamara of Champagne and Macaroons, and Jess of Mimi and Chichi.

And of course I needed a new outfit for the event. Luckily I had Monday off and stopped by Opitz on Excelsior Blvd. If you’ve never been there, and you are reading this post, you need to go there now! It’s an amazing Outlet here in the Cities (there is another location in Minnetonka, which I don’t like as much to be honest). But they have all possible and impossible designer clothing there for a fraction of the cost. I scored this Milly dress for $30, and splurged on a Zac Posen dress that was $70.

Blogger Bash was amazing, I always enjoy hanging out with new and old blogger friends. And I really appreciate everyone who stops by to say hi! You make my day!

Did you come to the party? What did you think?

PS. A couple spoilers for the upcoming posts – My new favorite lipstick, 4th of July post featuring Sam (!!!), and why I never want to be a full time blogger ๐Ÿ˜‰

Rock the Garden Recap + Very Girly Cocktail Recipe

Unknown

image1

Last Sunday I got an awesome chance to see Rock the Garden, from a rooftop. My in-laws live in Lowry Hill right behind the Walker, so Sam and I literally climbed the roof. We are not as glamorous as you may have thought when you started reading this post ๐Ÿ˜‰

The two bands worth mentioning are The Ghost of A Saber Tooth Tiger (ft. Sean Lennon), and Modest Mouse. Sean Lennon looked just like I remember him from when he performed in Moscow, just with longer hair.

Modest Mouse was amazing, and of course not enough. But they were totally worth climbing the roof for. And it was even better because Sam climbed it with me.

We managed to fit in Father’s Day dinner, a walk, and some cocktails in between performances.

And I wanted to share our cocktail recipe with you, but be warned, I eyeball everything:

Ingredients:

– rum

– fresca

– orange/tangerine tropicana

– scoop of watermelon gelato

How to:

Start with rum, then add orange/tangerine juice, then some Fresca, top it off with the scoop of gelato, and add some more Fresca to melt the gelato. Don’t forget ice! I only had one of these, but I definitely could’ve gone for two more ๐Ÿ˜‰
