Friday Finds: Fun Things From The Web

Hello! Lovelies
 
Check out some of these really fun things I'm currently loving and needing.


Home D├ęcor: Loving these cute little copper pots. Obsessed with the little succulents in them. But they can be used for many different things. From in your bathroom to kitchen.

 
 
Jewelry: I own these very earrings myself and love them. They come in so many different fun colors and they even have a mini version of these petal earrings.
 
 
 
 
Clothing:  I love the simplicity in the bold font of this tank.
 
 
 
 
Furniture: Of course Target has come out with a new collection of awesome goodies. I love this outdoor chair, reminds me of some my Mom had when I was a little kid. Man I wish she still had those chairs.
 
 
 
 
What fun things have you discovered this week?

Thirsty Thursday: The Perfect Margarita Recipe

Hello!
 
So I've not posted in a very long time. I really need to get back on track with a schedule. Since I've been away so long lots of things have happened in my life. Some great and some not so great. But recently something great happened, I've finally perfected the best margarita. I've been trying to make them at home for awhile now and they just never taste like I want them to. But now I've figured it out. Yay me!
 
 
Cinco de mayo is fast approaching so it's the perfect time to share this with you all.


 
 
 
Recipe:
 
 
1/2 - 1 cup Water
1/2 cup Arta Silver Tequila
6-7 limes
1/3 cup Cointreau
2-3 tablespoons Blue Agave Golden Syrup
 
Optional: Kosher salt for glass rims
 
 
In a blender squeeze fresh limes (The more the better, I personally like lots of fresh lime) and add water. Add your tequila and Cointreau. Then add the agave. Blend until combined.
 
Rim margarita glass or mason jar with salt and pour over ice. And enjoy!
 
 
 
If you make this Margarita I'd love to hear how you liked it. Comment below or tag me in a picture on Instagram @ChicCountryGirl
 
 
I'm pretty sure this just might become mine and yours weekend summer staple.
 
 
Cheers!
 
Emily

Fashion: Summer Party Dress | The Perfect Floral Print Wrap Maxi

 Hello!
 
Between Graduation parties, Wedding season and afternoon lunches with the girls. We all are looking for the perfect dressy casual maxi dress for summertime. So look no further; I've found it!
 
This dress is both a wrap and maxi dress. The blue color is beautiful and the flower print is striking without being over the top. I really love how easy this dress is. Its a dress you can throw on and you have a whole look. Add some cute earrings or a simple necklace and you are good to go. Oh well you might also want to wear some shoes unless your going for a very bohemian look.

Fashion: Casual Girls Lunch | My first Gladiators

Hello!
 
 
 Spring where have you gone? The day before these pictures were taken most of Colorado was experiencing a rather strong spring snow storm. So of course most of my warm coats, boots & scarves had been nicely packed away. Thankfully 48 hours after the initial storm started I was able to then again rock a light , spring outfit. You wouldn't have even known the past 48 hours had been terrible if it wasn't for a few traces of snow and the sad broken tree branches.
 
This outfit made me think of a cute lunch out with your girls or maybe an afternoon date.
 
And yes that is a toiletry pouch I am using for my clutch. If it was good enough for Princess Diana to use as one it's good for this girl too.
 
I am loving these gladiator sandals from Target. They remind me of Valentino's rock studs without having to break the bank. Also I can't believe they are the first gladiators I've ever owned.

Cocktails: Limeaide Margaritas | Happy Cinco de Mayo

Hello!
 
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Maybe you're Mexican , Mexican - American or happen to know someone born of the 5th of May ( Happy Birthday Dad!) then maybe you'll be celebrating the occasion with some Tacos & Tequila.
 
So in celebration of Cinco de Mayo and my Dad's birthday I thought I'd share my go to recipe for Margaritas. They are very simple and a crowd pleaser.
 
 
 


    
Recipe:

Makes 4

Ingredients |

1 Cup Tequila (I use Hornitos)
1/4 Cup Triple Sec
1/2 Can Frozen Limeaide Concentrate
1/2 Cup Water
Ice Cubes
Fresh Lime
Salt

Throw ingredients into  a blender & blend. If you are wanting them a little less strong you can always add less Tequila. Fresh lime wedge & salt to garnish glass. The amount of ice you want depends on how frozen you're wanting your Margarita. Around 1 cup I recommend.


I hope you all have a fantastic Cinco de Mayo.
 
What are your plans? If you make this recipe let me know tag me on Instagram @ChicCountryGirl

Hello!
 
Ahh Spring is in the air. Welcome back sandals , ripped jeans & white tops. With a new season brings new choices to your wardrobe. Which what woman doesn't love getting new seasonal pieces?!?!
 
Like this great slouchy white top from TOBI.
 
 
 Since the weather is warming up it's nice to be able to pair a cute light weight top with a leather jacket. For me a leather jacket is a staple for any season. Real or Faux!

Fashion | Stilnest Anna Saccone - Joly Zodiac "Sagittarius" Sign Necklace

Hello!
 
I am back after another long pause in blogging and like I always say in the past I will be back blogging more... I really hope to keep that promise this time.
 
So I am back with something I've wanted to share with you all for months now and just haven't got around to doing so. I've had this piece since around November or a little before and I have worn it almost every day since it arrived. It's my zodiac sign necklace from Anna Saccones collection with Stilnest.
 
This collection was designed by one half of the popular British vlogging couple Anna Saccone of "The Saccone - Joly's." A little story on how the collection came to be:
 
 "One of Anna Saccone’s signature items is her Scorpio star sign necklace. This piece is not only jewellery to her, but a really personal talisman. Anna explains, “Unfortunately I can’t tell you where it’s from because it belonged to my dad before me and I inherited it from him. He was a Scorpio too, I was actually born the day before his birthday… I was his birthday present!”
 
I love how the collection was inspired by a piece of jewelry she inherited from her late father. When it was first released last year I was interested in getting one of the gold charms in my zodiac sign but held off because of the price and not knowing if I'd wear it enough to justify it. But I ended up buying it and loving it. I've worn it nearly nonstop since receiving it last November; I can see it becoming a piece I will love for a long time and even pass on. My baby niece is also a "Sagittarius" so one day I might pass it on to her.
 
Now I am not one of those firm believers in astrology I just like personalized things like this so; I understand if you're like "Zodiac signs are a bunch of BS!" . I just think these necklaces are a beautiful piece of jewelry.
 
 
 
 
 
This necklace comes in 3 different finishes 925 silver, 925 silver rose gold plated, or like mine 925 silver gold plated. And it comes in 3 different chain lengths l (31.5cm) , m (23.5cm) , s (17.5cm).
 
The quality is beautiful! This would make a wonderful gift for anyone. Great idea for a Mothers Day gift, because ladies & gents don't forget about your Mamas it's just around the corner.
 
 While you are there don't forget to look at all the other cool collections Stilnest has to offer.
 
 
I hope you all are having a beautiful Monday afternoon.
 
~Love
Emily
