Sole Support

I need some support for my shoe addiction...maybe I will find it at "Shoe Obsession” the latest exhibit brought to you by The Museum at FIT in New York.  This 150-piece collection showcases contemporary footwear from brands like Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia and more.  Now instead of buying them...I can stand around and admire them for free!

Beach Dip

Since it's too cold to lay out at the beach, I am focusing on building my beach wardrobe for the warmer months.  I love this DIY bleach tie die for my shorts...they are my fave cover up, and what boho girl doesn't like tie die!  I can't wait to see what creative pieces you create!  Surfs up (soon)!

Supplies: Denim shorts, 2 buckets, bleach, hanger 

1. Fold your shorts in half, then clip onto the hanger.

2. Fill your bucket with bleach, then dip the shorts directly down. Be careful not to touch the side of the bucket. If you need to push the bottom down into the bleach use a plastic gloved hand. Hold for 3 minutes.

3. Next I hung over another bucket (filled halfway with water) for 30 min. Then dunked the bottom of the shorts in the water to rinse out the bleach. Let dry.

4. The color bleach may take an hour or so of drying to reach the final color (my jeans looked ombre at first). To get the bleach smell out, wash in a machine separately in cold water.

How do you like them apples...

Hot & spiked!  This recipe for Spiced Apple Cider will warm the coldest of nights...21 and older please...unless you omit the Brandy!

Spiced Apple Cider

Ingredients
1 gallon apple cider, preferably fresh (the darker the better)
1 tablespoon whole allspice
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
4 whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
Brandy, Calvados (apple brandy), or bourbon (optional)
Preparation
Combine cider, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon sticks in a large pot. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; add bean. Bring spiced cider just to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook just below a simmer until flavors meld, about 1 hour.
Strain cider through a sieve into another pot or heatproof punch bowl; discard solids in sieve. Add brandy to taste, if using. Ladle hot spiced cider into cups.
