A Festive Holiday Cocktail with Tulle and Twig

With the holidays upon us, I wanted to share this festive cocktail recipe I came across over on Snappy Gourmet.  I found it when I was looking for drinks to make that call for limoncello.  We brought some back with us that we got in Sorrento, Italy. And what better way to enjoy this drink than out of some of my holiday swag from Tulle and Twig!  Check out the Tulle and Twig website to stock up on all of your holiday party decor needs and receive 20% off through 11/20/18 with code EMMYLOU.

Fall is in the air, and that means it’s time to break out the layers!  Lace camisoles are the perfect piece for transitioning to fall because you can wear them alone or throw a jacket on.

I recently purchased this polka dot lace camisole from Abercrombie!  Yes, you read that right, Abercrombie.  I’m pretty sure it has been at least 18 years since I’ve purchased anything from there, but I stumbled upon it during Labor Day Weekend sales.  I wore it out for date night, and it’s perfect alone or with a leather jacket thrown on top.

It will be great for the office too!  It’s not too low cut, and will be perfect with a long cardigan thrown over it.  This one comes in several different colors and prints AND it’s under $30!

Jewelry + shopping + cocktails = the perfect girls night out!  I was in my local Kendra Scott store a few months ago and I randomly dropped my business card into the fish bowl for a chance to win a Color Bar Party.  Since I don’t normally win anything, I really didn’t think this time would be any different but to my surprise I was wrong! I won a party for a few of my girlfriends and I, complete with champagne, snacks, and all of the pretty baubles surrounding us!

What is the Color Bar?

The Kendra Scott Color Bar is an interactive tool that allows you to customize your own pieces in store AND online!  Choose from 50+ styles and 30+ stones to create pieces that are exactly what YOU want!  Maybe it’s the digital marketer in me, but I totally geek out over fun and interactive things like this.  I could spend hours playing with this tool and creating and recreating ideas.  I am kind of known for being indecisive, so with this many options we were bound to be there all night 😉

What is a Color Bar Party?

A Color Bar Party allows you and your closest gal pals to have a fun night out playing with around with the interactive touchscreen, and putting together your own creations.  You can choose from earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings!  The store associates were so helpful in bringing out cases of stones and popping them in and out of various pieces for us.  If you want to host your very own party, call your local store to set up a time.  It’s a great idea for a girls night!

It’s fun to see what everyone creates and how it is unique to each individual.  Scroll on to see what I got, and what some of my gal pals chose!

Our Picks

Remember how I said I was super indecisive?  So instead of creating something from the Color Bar, I ended up going with a pre-made necklace!  I didn’t own any KS necklaces until now, and I love that this one will go with literally everything!

PENDANT NECKLACE (available in multiple colors)

The last time I visited the Color Bar, I left with two pairs of earrings.  I wear both of these all of the time!  I am actually surprised at how often I come across things in my closet that the green stones go with.

One of my friends bought two of the Edie Rose Gold Cuff bracelets and has been layering them.  I wouldn’t have thought of doing this, but it’s such a cute look!

If you’re indecisive like me, the Shelia Earring is a great option because when you design your own you can choose a couple of different colored stones, or you can stick with all one color.  This is such a fun statement earring!  This cat’s eye blue with the gold looks so pretty!

T G I F my friends!  I am off today and looking forward to spending it with my oldest at Six Flags!  I haven’t been in YEARS, but it should be a good time.  I made a promise to myself before summer started that I would take random days off throughout the summer instead of stockpiling days off to use at the end of the year when it’s too cold outside to do fun things anyways!  I’m happy to report that I’ve held myself to it and I’m so glad that I have.

So as summer starts to wind down a bit, I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces (all of which are under $30)!


I have been wearing these cute slides all summer long.  They come in a few colors and are under $30!  They go with everything from jeans to dresses to skirts!  They have held up really well too!

I recently snagged this little beauty for $6 at an antique store!  I thought it was such a cute purse for summertime outfits.  The best part is these beaded bags are having a bit of a comeback right now!  Fashion most definitely repeats itself!

The Pixi by Petra Honey Sheen lipgloss has been a fave of mine for awhile now.  I love the nude glossy look it gives and I also love that I can trust this company and their ingredients used!  They carry so many great products, I’m linking my go to’s below!
