Super Bowl Sunday is always a big deal as I'm a football fan and even if my team isn't playing (Colt's), I can always find a team to cheer for (this year it will be the Ravens), enjoy the commercials, nibbles/bevvies and of course Beyonce and Destiny's Child during the half time show! I'm definitely excited and as I think about what I'm wearing, I love that the beauty choices are definitely exciting. Deborah Lippmann has phenom hues that you can wear to support the San Francisco 49ers (Like a Virgin, Nefertiti, Stop and Stare) or the Baltimore Ravens (Fade to Black, Believe, Call Me Irresponsible). Check out the fab hues and what colors you can wear in order to support your team. Feel free to tweet @KittenLounge to show us your mani art!
Sundays are made for friends hanging out! Whether you're watching the game or just out and about there are ways to have food arranged so that it's fun and accessible. I'm a huge fan of sushi and love the trays that are available. Sometimes as opposed to having the "typical" game food, we love picking up a lot of sushi so that we can nibble throughout the day. We're never short on cheese and these agate plates are not only right up my alley being a stone, but it's a great way to present your favorite varieties! Even if you have your classic mini burgers, chips, etc get a great platter. I love shopping around and finding the perfect ones that can be used for the everyday. Finally, having the right glass for whatever you're going to sip is essential and to make it homey, get them monogrammed or have your favorite saying placed on it! Whether it's you and your sig other, family or roommates it's a special way to spend the day when you're glued to the TV!
Today is a great day no matter the weather or what you're up to! Today is National Girlfriend's Day so you definitely want to make sure that you plan a dinner or grab drinks as there is nothing more important than the bond between girlfriends! Whether you go out or keep it low key, this is something that we should definitely be happy to have! In addition to it being National Girlfriend's Day, I would like to introduce you to a fun game that I recently played and is the perfect thing to play with new friends and those that you have known forever!
When it comes to sisterhood, the real life sister duo Kerri and Patti, wanted to come up with a game that was lots of fun but had women in mind. As a result, they created What's a Dame to Do, a game where situations that have happened to many of us play out with various responses which allow you to see how well you know someone or what a person that you don't know would do in a given situation. I have played this game twice and it's amazing to hear people's responses or to watch them act it out! This is perfect for an icebreaker in college dorms and is also a lot of fun to play when you find a group of girls over your house and you realize there is nothing on TV and you would rather just talk!
I do love that you don't have to read a rule book and that you can just jump in and play What's A Dame to Do. From now until August 6th, you'll receive a 10% discount (enter promo code: GIRLFRIENDS)when purchasing this game in honor of National Girlfriend's Day. In addition, they are looking for the next Dame to be on the visuals which could be you and this game is getting an update which means you can contribute a dilemma or situation as well! I love a relevant game that also gets you a better understanding of people whether you have been best friends for years or you just met! Check out more about this game on What's a Dame to Do and grab your girlfriend's for a great night out and if you're in the area, I'm always interested in playing another round!
I remember when I tried my first Mojito and I thought that I had found my signature drink. Oh fickled taste buds, the love affair didn't last. Somehow I returned to my Gin and Tonic and wondered if I would find a signature drink that I wouldn't stray from. Well, this weekend, I will try to make Raspberry Mojitos which may in fact be my drink for the summer and hopefully a hit at many housewarmings, game nights and more. I am always excited to try something new and this drink recipe and many others, are available on Cocktail Times which is my go to place for the best drinks and meals that you would want to incorporate into a future function! So if this drink doesn't hit the spot, there are plenty of other ones that you will love making as you begin to play bartender! I love that this recipe is simple and that there are so many fresh ingredients as well.
Raspberry Mojito Pitcher Ingredients:
- 6 oz Cruzan light rum
- 4 oz Rock Candy Syrup (or simple syrup)

- handful of raspberries
- 30 - 40 sprigs of fresh mint leaves
