Our team shares their absolute FAVES of the week. What are your faves? Share with us in the comments below!
I’m literally the worst at shopping for gifts for people over the holidays, mainly because I get so distracted by things that I want. My Friday fave this week is one of those distractions. I popped into Indigo hoping to pick up a nice smelling candle or book for my friend, when I was distracted by this beauty. I’m obsessed with horoscopes and the zodiac, so when I saw this gold zodiac necklace on sale, I HAD to have it. Needless to say, I’ve been wearing it ever since, and no, I have not yet found the perfect gift for my friend…
My Friday Fave this week is the book Wise Cocktails: The Owl’s Brew Guide to Crafting & Brewing Tea-Based Beverages. Wise Cocktails offers fresh-brewed tips for mixing your very own tea-based cocktails. The small book actually has 100 recipes including recipes with loose-leaf tea as well as Owls Brew Signature Tea blends. There are even recipes for tea smoothies, sodas and tea infused snacks. I love this book because it puts a healthy spin on cocktails, and since I worked as a bartender for years, I understand the amounts of sugar that go into regular drinks and am looking to avoid that whenever I can. If you appreciate a creative cocktail with a more natural taste this book is worth taking a look.

Thank you so much to our friend @the_simple_taste for enthusiastically sharing the news of our book "Wise Cocktails!" This is the "Red Whiskey" #cocktail, which combines 2 oz. The Classic, 2 oz. Freshly pressed beet juice, and 1.5 oz. Whiskey. Shake with ice, pour into a rocks glass and garnish with a lemon slice. We love that color! #wisecocktails
I’m a big fan of The Body Shop’s Felt Eyeliner. Even though the star stamp is not for me, I really like how smooth and easy it goes on. Hint, hint at anyone still looking for a last minute gift for me 😉
Swiss Chalet should really be my Friday Fave every week, because I am truly in love. But this week I found out that Swiss Chalet restaurants are about to get a big makeover and I am all for it. They are rebranding and making the restaurants look a lot more modern. Maybe I’ll start dining in more instead of taking out with their new sleek aesthetic!
Lately, I’ve been seeing the trailer for the upcoming Ocean’s 8 movie on social media and I can’t wait to see it in theatres. I loved all of the Ocean’s movies (I have a strange fascination with silver fox George Clooney :P) and when I saw that this new release features an all-star female cast, I was STOKED! It’s going to be about Danny Ocean‘s sister (Sandra Bullock), who also happens to be a master thief who rolls with a girl gang of criminals that plan a heist at the Met Gala in NYC.
Powerhouses Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter will all be starring – Need I say more? It will be out in theatres June 2018.
