Don't Mind If I Do


PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, loves!  How's the week shaping up for you? 

Dreaming of having a little outdoor time this week before a heatwave hits on Thursday.  It's going to be 97 degrees here in NYC which means I'll be all about the AC for a few days.  And if I have to be outside I'd like to have one of two of these refreshers to make it more bearable.  Juices of blackberries and cucumbers are mixed with muddled fresh mint, laced with Hendricks gin, then poured over lots of ice.  Sounds good to me.  What do you say?  Care to join me?

Enjoy the day, sweets!

xoxo

I visited NYC in a massive heat wave once... the smells were not pretty. Logan and I sought refuge at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa. Stay cool Dawn. xo

Those refreshers sound just perfect to beat the heat. I can't believe it's going to be so hot tomorrow. That's like a beach day! I got my hair cut yesterday to prepare for it ;)

I would love to join you, especially if you are serving those cocktails! Fingers crossed the heatwave isn't as bad as predicted.

Samantha Green said...

sounds amazing! the sun has finally decided to come out here too, which is very welcome, if you ask me! :) xx

Leslie said...

Count me in! Our weather is still hit and miss with some overcast and drizzle until July.. I can't imagine 97 degrees (and humidity!) Those kinds of temps require extra hydration ;)

Absolutely! Is it weird I have a random desire to see what your apartment looks like? I bet it's fabulous!

fashionsensitive said...

Dear Dawn, we are already there with the temperature, I went out today to buy me an ice cream and I was dying, but summer is still my favorite season :D I am all about mint refreshers, so yours sounds like heaven! :*

Koru Kate {Koru Wedding} said...

I am dreading Thursday! I keep reminding myself the heat is better than the bitter cold of winter but still . . .

Elizabeth {Ms Classic Glamour} said...

That first photo is gorgeous! Her freckles are so cute and unique!
I'm sure I'll be wanting to stay in the A/Ced house this week too... summer is practically upon us!
Have a beautiful day, Hun!
