Kir Royale Cocktail Recipe

We’ve been in the mood for a fall refresh, which not only includes our wardrobes, but cocktails as well. Autumn seems to have a more sophisticated and sultry feel, and the Kir Royale is a classic French cocktail that’s simply the perfect fit for the season. The Kir Royale can be made with a variety of other berry and fruit liqueurs, but with early autumn settling in, we chose in-season blackberries, and Crème de Cassis – a black currant liqueur. This drink is light and bubbly with a rich berry flavor … not to mention incredibly refreshing! Topped off with juicy blackberries (or raspberries!)  for garnish, you’ll be enjoying this drink throughout the season.


Ingredients (makes one cocktail)

1/2 oz. Crème de Cassis

3 oz. French champagne or sparkling wine

Blackberries for garnish


Simply pour the two liquids together in a champagne flute, top with blackberries, and enjoy!

DIYCoconut Rose Body Scrub DIY

IMG_2703promo (2)

Get smooth, silky, and toned skin in just a few minutes with our super easy Coconut Rose Body Scrub DIY! We chose three simple ingredients (organic of course!) that you probably already have in your kitchen, plus this scrub smells and feels so amazing that it will make you feel like you’ve spent the day at a luxury spa! Coconut oil has SO many applications as a natural beauty ingredient: not only is it ultra-hydrating and leaves your skin looking lustrous (but never greasy), it also has antibacterial and antiviral properties to help to prevent breakouts and heal wounds quickly. Finely ground pink Himalayan salt is great at exfoliating and removing dead skin, plus it helps draw out toxins and cleanse. Rose essential oil is a natural astringent that assists in toning, firming, and lifting the skin, and contains properties that help skin heal scars and stretchmarks more rapidly.
