California Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

We were asked by DeKuyper to come up with a signature cocktail that would be fun to serve during the holidays. Most people think of eggnog or peppermint as their Christmas flavors of choice, but when I think winter... I think citrus!

I love the sweet and tangy flavors citrus brings to a drink, and since I am a California girl (by way of New Jersey), I wanted to create a California cosmopolitan cocktail recipe that highlights the relaxed, casual, West Coast lifestyle and would brighten up any holiday party.

Christmas Ornament DIY Ideas

by Jillian Leslie on

I was invited by Tend to create a video, sharing some of my favorite Christmas ornament DIY ideas. I can't tell you how fun this was.

I headed to a cool DIY space in San Francisco called Workshop. They had everything set up there (including a makeup and hair person). Given that I spend most of my days in my office (garage), in my yoga pants, in front of my computer, it was such a change, and I felt like a real celebrity. Kim Kardashian, watch out!

I absolutely love wrapping up gifts in fabric. These easy to make drawstring bags are perfect for dressing up those holiday gifts. Make them various sizes. They are perfect for the oddly shaped presents that are nearly impossible to wrap with paper. Best part, the are reusable! A great way to go green this holiday season.
