SPRITZ COCKTAIL

SPRITZ COCKTAIL

I am hoping that if I keep making Spring and Summer recipes that it will encourage the weather to warm up! I have been interested in making a spritz cocktail ever since it hit Instagram like crazy last year. Unfortunately, I was in the process of moving and adjusting to life in Chicago, so I didn’t get the chance to try it out. I posted a Spritz photo to my Instagram and got several questions about how to make it or what recipe I used. As requested, here is the Aperol Spritz recipe I use.

HOW TO GET A POLAROID PICTURE WITHOUT THE CAMERA

HOW TO GET A POLAROID PICTURE WITHOUT THE CAMERA

Polaroid pictures have been back in style for a while now, getting your hands on a truly vintage Polaroid camera can be expensive, and buying a new one isn’t exactly cheap either. I love the instant photos that Polaroids provide. It’s so fun to take these cameras out on the town or vacation, but I never seem to get a great photo. It usually takes me more than one shot to get a decent picture. I’m still learning how to not have dark or washed out photos using a Polaroid camera, lighting is definitely a struggle for me. The film for the actual camera can range from $1-3+ per photo. That’s insane when you think about how many shots you take on an iPhone to get only one good photo. On my phone, I have 100 photos of the same thing, there’s no way I could afford to take that many photos using a Polaroid camera. If I figure out the secret to taking the perfect photo on a Polaroid camera, I will be sure to let you all know. In the mean time, I found a life hack that will make getting the perfect polaroid so much easier.

WHY YOU NEED COLLAGEN

WHY YOU NEED COLLAGEN

I became very interested in the idea of taking collagen after I had seen a few ads and seen some of my favorite influencers talking about it. I am not into taking supplements, other than my daily vitamins, mainly because I have never really noticed a difference or believed the marketing behind them. Now that I am approaching 25, I have started to notice some fine lines surfacing on my forehead and under my eyes. So when I heard about taking collagen, something that is essential to maintain youth, I was definitely curious. I wanted to learn more about it to see if it really works.
