A Refreshing Summer Brew

Wednesday, July 03, 2013 | COLUMN: Party Time

There aren’t many things I look forward to more than a Georgia summer. When the air feels like a steamy sauna, sounds of the tomahawk chop are heard on every television and frequent escapes to the lake become a weekend ritual. July 4th is the pinnacle of this season: a time to celebrate with friends, family, good food and refreshing cocktails! I fell in love with this Raspberry Summer Brew at first sip and can’t wait to make it on the fourth. It is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day and easy to make in large batches.

Halloween Party Tips

Planning a spooky soiree? These time-saving, budget-friendly tips can help you get more fright for your buck—even if you’ve waited until the last minute!

  1. Make a guest-list and use it as a guide for the space you will need to accommodate.
  2. Email invitations and/or create a Facebook event page as soon as possible. Make sure to include the theme (if you have one) and specify whether or not guests should wear costumes.
  3. Popular theme ideas include: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Murder Mystery, Historical Figures, Masquerade Ball, The 50s, Dead Rock Star Party.
  4. Set up a buffet of Halloween-themed snacks and beverages. “Finger cookies” and gummy worms in chocolate “dirt” are always popular dishes.
  5. Decorate with anything from crepe paper streamers and balloons to creepy (and cost-effective) spider webs. For a gory bathroom, replace your shower curtain with a clear vinyl liner. Put slash marks in it and cover the tub and curtain in fake blood.
  6. Find some smoky jazz music to play throughout your home that has a dark, gritty feel to it. The soundtrack to, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” is a good example.

Now, that’s Some Serious Eye Candy

Monday, November 14, 2011 | COLUMN: Party Time

Eye_Candy
When it comes to makeup, the eyes truly have the most fun. (We have an  entire online app dedicated to the art of those soulful orbs.) With a dazzling kaleidoscope of shadows, liners and more to choose from, shopping for a new eye look is a lot like being a kid in a candy store. Now imagine if, instead of mineral color, you actually used real candy? That’s exactly what eye stylista Diana Mastova did in her latest culinary/cosmetic creation. Using confectionary toppings instead of makeup, Mastova whipped up this scrumptious, eye-stopping look, complete with rock candy blush and party sprinkle lipstick. Hey, we’ve always had a sweet spot for creative eye candy.
