Tequila Old Fashioned + More Sales Added: Kendra Scott + OOTD

Any big tequila drinkers out there?  My friend Elisabeth sent over this recipe for an old fashioned with tequila.  I must say I don’t have any bitters around, but if you or your husband are into them, then you should definitely try this cocktail!

Tequila Old Fashioned

2 oz. T1 Anejo Estelar
I’ve actually tried this brand of tequila and really like it!
.5 oz agave nectar
2 dashes angostura bitters
1 dash of pimento bitters

Stir everything together in a mixing glass until chilled.
Pour over a really big ice cube if you have it!
Peel an orange twist over the edge of the glass

Note: Add any kind of fun or interesting bitters you want to make it unique.


In case you missed last night’s updated blog post, check it out here.  I went through and selected my favorite Half-Yearly Sale items that I’m sure won’t last long.  I’m also sharing more of my favorites, below…

Today is the last day of Kate Spade’s Surprise Sale!

J.Crew and K Jacques have collaborated to bring you my favorite Epicure Sandals that J.Crew will now carry for a limited time!  I’ve been wanting the black pair for awhile, but every time they’re on sale, the black color sells out very quickly.  They’re the same price as they would be regularly, except that if you have your J.Crew Spring Rewards, you can score these sandals at a discount.  For sizing, I’m an 8.5 and wear a 39 in these.  They really are the most comfortable sandals I own and conform to your feet the more you wear them.  I’ve had my taupe pair for over two years and still love wearing them!
