A Mint Julep Milkshake & Vintage Glasses

 

Get ready for the Kentucky Derby with a mint julep milkshake recipe. Mint Julep Milkshake with Vintage Horse Glass

It’s almost time for the Kentucky Derby! Bring on the floppy hats, bold printed dresses, bourbon, and mint juleps of course. If you enjoy girly cocktails like I do, bourbon isn’t your thing. Sure, I’ll enjoy a mint julep but I would rather be drinking this – a Mint Julep Milkshake 😉 Get the recipe from Beautiful Booze and drool with me over Natalie’s beautiful horse glasses too. The glasses were originally from Crate & Barrel but are no longer in stock.

There is something about beautiful bar accessories and glasses that I love. Maybe it’s because I’m picking up a new bar cart later today. Either way, Natalie’s recipe made me drool and start looking around for vintage horse glasses. After all, it’s only appropriate to drink a mint julep milkshake out of a horse themed glasse.

pink mid-century horse glasses

The mid-century enthusiast in me did a happy dance when I spotted these horse highball glasses. Pink, gold, black… all of my favorite colors meet.

vintage Arabian horse glasses

While you won’t see any Arabian horses running for the roses, I couldn’t help but share these Arabian horse whiskey glasses.

Vintage horse head glasses

These Cyril Gorainoff horse glasses would be beautiful for sipping on milkshakes or whatever you fancy. Be sure to search local thrift stores, and websites like Etsy and Chairish for even more vintage finds.

Renter Friendly Wallpaper Options

 

Beige walls are boring, but don’t worry there are options out there for renters. 

arrow and teepee peel and stick wallpaper

As a renter, I have a love/hate relation with those plain beige walls. While I love a blank canvas as much as the next person, it’s not fun having them if you can’t do anything about it. Sure, you can paint and pay a huge fee for painting when you move out or paint them back, but that’s a pain. Enter the options for removable wallpaper. I’ve never had the urge to wallpaper a whole room but would like to do an accent wall in our apartment. Here are some of my favorite designs I’ve found so far.

1. Teepee wallpaper from BC Magic Wallpaper. Black and white is always a good idea and I love the whimsical design.

Pink peel and stick wallpaper

2. Pink geometric peel and stick wallpaper from Lena Tapet has a retro and fun feel. Pink can also do no wrong in my book.

Black and white striped peel and stick wallpaper. for the home

3. Diagonal striped black and white wallpaper from Livettes makes a bold statement. Naturally I love how the steer head compliments the wall.

Blue geometric peel and stick wallpaper4. Tribal diamond print peel and stick wallpaper also from Livettes is a great way to add color and a little southwest style to your walls.

Geometric peel and stick wallpaper5. Geometric print navy wallpaper from Apply Easy is nice and pretty.

pink geometric peel and stick wallpaper6. Tribal print coral wallpaper from Chasing Paper is soft and pretty. Wallpaper is also perfect for decorating furniture or making statement art.

Black and white arrows peel and stick wallpaper

7. Removable arrow print wall paper from BC Magical Wallpaper will give your walls a statement.

Deer skull peel and stick wallpaper

8. Deer skull mural wallpaper from Livettes Kids is so much fun. Even though this is meant for a kid’s nursery, I love this print.

Do you have any experiences with renter friendly wallpaper?

12 Pairs of Fringe Wedges for Spring & Summer

Get ready for warmer weather with some fancy footwear! 

 

 
Everyone loves a good pair of wedges, especially fringe wedges. A wedge is the perfect pair of footwear for someone who walks a lot but still wants to look stylish. Heels can be too much and flats often make your feet feel unsupported after long hours of walking.

I live in sandals and flats during the summer and really need to up my shoe game so I decided to share some of my favorites. You can’t go wrong with a little suede, some blue or pink fringe.
