I went barefoot and makeup-free for today's post! More and more we've been having friends pop over for a cocktail on a Friday night and its important to note that it doesn't have to be over the top! Especially in the summer...I love hosting and I especially love it in a casual setting, no shoes, music on, good food and good cocktails! I'm sharing my favorite go-to drink, a dark and stormy. I love to load up on the lime juice and the key is to use the best ingredients. I was so excited when I found this ginger beer - its the best!!
