Elsie Green Giveaway + Cucumber Lemon Fizz

September 5, 2014


My girlfriend Kelsey introduced me to the amazing Elsie Green studio and all of their amazing goodies.  Elsie Green is a family run company that curates gorgeous, sustainable finds from all over the globe. Hand woven totes from Marakkech? Vintage champagne coupes from a cafe in France? Vintage kanthas made from Indian saris? Look no further.


Each and every piece tells a story, and my favorite part (aside from their desire to work towards a desirable home, and their one of kind inventory) is their amazing partnership with 1% for the Plant – who doesn’t like to do some good and give back will shopping!?


I am so excited for the opportunity to partner with Elsie Green… I love to shop & eat locally, and their company represents that in the most beautiful way possible!  But don’t worry… I won’t keep the Elsie Green goodness all to myself… because they have very generously donated a gorgeous set of Moroccan tea glasses to one of my lucky readers!!!  Just enter the contest at the end of this post… we will announce a winner next week!

The “See Ya Later”

May 30, 2014


I whipped up this little number with some leftover grapefruits from my Farm Fresh to You box (use code WHIT1117 for $10 off!) and was pleasantly surprised by the positive feedback! This turned into the drink of choice for Memorial Day Weekend… we highly recommend it for your next pool day!


“See Ya Later” Grapefruit Cocktail

  • Juice of 2 Grapefruits
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • 2 cups Vodka
  • 1/2 cup Elderflower Liqueur (St. Germain)
  • Club Soda (optional)

This recipe doesn’t get any easier… Simply mix all of the above ingredients (except the club soda) and serve over ice.  Top with club soda if you don’t like your drinks as strong… but be careful… this one sneaks up on you!
