Tropical Sangria + Summer Favorites

image via
I’m definitely trying this tropical sangria cocktail this weekend.  A perfect, refreshing summer cocktail!  I found it here and each cup is only 139 calories.

Tropical Sangria

Makes 8 (1-cup) servings.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Chill time: 5 hours

 One 8-oz. can pineapple chunks packed in juice, not drained
1 cup mango chunks (fresh or thawed from frozen)
2 limes, sliced into rounds
One 750-ml bottle white wine (sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio)
4 oz. coconut rum
12 oz. diet lemon-lime soda

Place all fruit in a very large pitcher, including the juice from the canned pineapple.
Add the wine and rum.
Gently stir.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 5 hours.
Just before serving, add soda and stir.
Serve with a ladle, and make sure to get some fruit in each glass!


You may remember that Effie wore this anchor dress on Tuesday.  Well Wheeler wanted her turn and wore it on Wednesday.

We finally got a sunny day!
And you know us, we took full advantage!

A Few Summer Favorites

Beach Towel (This beach towel is so popular that it has sold out almost everywhere, but luckily for you, I found it still available here!) // S’well Bottle (Pink and Aqua) // Jack Rogers Sandals // Wet Brush (We LOVE this brush!  If you haven’t heard of it yet, it’s awesome to use on wet hair and it gets your tangles out so easily.  My girls can brush their long hair by themselves now.  The paddle brush size is new and I’ve found that it’s the best size for our long hair, only $10!  I also got this smaller size for the boys’ hair.) // Sunglasses // Cover-Up

While I’m still patiently waiting for my Splash Into Summer Lilly order to arrive, I wanted to let y’all know that the Lilly Pulitzer Agendas are now available for pre-order!  I used to use this planner every single day a few years ago.  I’m pretty much all iPhone calendar now, but I still do enjoy having a hard copy, just in case something happens to my phone or memory.  This Lovers Coral print above is my favorite.  Check out all the new prints here.
Essie just released their Summer Collection and I’m kind of excited about trying out some of these fun colors.  I ordered the Berried Treasure (bright ruby berry) and Coconut Cove (white with a hint of pink).  I’ll let you know what I think when I try them out!
Happy Thursday!
