About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Crimson & Clover

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the grand reopening of Crimson & Clover Floral Design. First off any one who names their business after a song by my beloved Jimmy Eat World is a already friend of mine. The party was such a blast & there were beautiful touches everywhere I turned! The fresh flower cooler is my idea of heaven- complete with artichokes & of course some vino!

I loved the old world french feel of this display shelf complete with ladder. The entire space had a fresh, but at times slightly retro vibe that local stylist, Stephanie Bradshaw of Bradshaw Styling helped bring to life.

They served the most gorgeous signature cocktail called the "Clover" at the event & it is the most perfect summer drink!
  • Muddle fresh Basil with 2 wedges of lime

  • Fill cup with ice & add 2 ounces ginger liqueur (try Canton brand)

  • Add 1/2 ounce white rum

  • Top with a splash of Gingerale & orchid as garnish
Of course I felt the need to stimulate the local economy & scooped up this fabulously interesting Dichondra also seen in the 2nd photo from above. Isn't it so unusual? It's like the plant version of ZZ Top's beards- let's hope I don't kill it!

I also picked up this fabulous Basil centerpiece that looks much neater in person. It's very dense & lush in its simple, classic glass bowl. It's something I would definitely replicate as a housewarming gift, since you can actually use it & it smells divine! I wish owner, Amy Epstein, the best of luck with her new location! I'm finally headed to see SATC this weekend- I can't wait! What are you guys up to? Have a great weekend beauties!
Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M

Thanks so much for coming Madeline, it was so great meeting you!! And I love my ring : )I came across your blog since I was looking at your website picking out what service I'm going to treat myself to now that the Grand Opening is over.

PS. the recipe we used in the cocktail called for plain club soda, not ginger ale- but i bet that is super yummy too! even just ginger liqueur and ginger ale is delicious.

Good to know about the tonic- I did it with gingerale & it still rocked!
