Daily – “Memorial Day Cocktails”



Did I have you at the mere mention of the word, “Cocktails”?  I would assume that the answer is a resounding, YES for those of us living in the frigid ‘winter’ states.

Thankfully, it is that time of year when we take out our much needed summer preparation checklist.  For those of you lucky enough to live in the ‘sunny’ states year round, I have taken it upon myself to educate you as to what a  “New York City Summer Checklist” entails.

It goes something like this:

___  Transition closets from winter to summer clothes, since a closet in NYC capable of holding more than one season’s wardrobe is a rare commodity. Heck, I even use my oven to store my shoes.

___  Confirm invite with friends to the Hamptons or Jersey Shore for Memorial Day Weekend.

___  Purchase self tanner or hit the spray tan salon.  (The risk of baring your winter white legs could be a visual hazard to those around you.)

___  Run to Bloomingdales for a new bathing suit.  Mental note for next year: force myself to go to the gym all winter long, instead of hibernating like a grizzly bear.

___  Run to Sephora and purchase the latest “Summer” color lipstick and eye shadows.  Oh ya, if you confirmed the invite to the beach, then don’t forget water proof mascara.

___  Boots to sandals…a pedicure is a MUST!

___  Buy sun block!

___  Get excited for Friday summer hours at work.  Half days baby!

Once you have checked off your list, the unofficial start of summer is here!

But, as I started this entire blog with the teaser of “Cocktails”, I feel as though I owe you a few delectable recipes! After all, what would summer be without a few cocktails’?

There are cocktails you get at a bar, cocktails you can make at home… then, every now and again, a fresh take on a cocktail comes along to take your ‘summer days of beauty’ to a whole new level.

Let me be your Mixologist this summer and refresh yourself with one of SerafinoSays Beauty Cocktails.  It’s a sure way to guarantee a summer of fun in the sun…

 

Hot & Dirty Martini:

3 oz Jonathan Product Dirt

2 oz Philip B Anti-Frizz Formula 57 Smoothing Shine Drops

Mixing Directions:  In your palm apply a dab of Jonathan Product dirt and a small drop of Philip B Anti-Frizz Formula 57 Smoothing Shine Drops.  Emulsify this concoction in your hands and fingers.  Now apply the mixture from the back of your head to the front, then repeat from the front of your head to the back.  Style your hair as desired.

Pretty in Pink:

1 oz Essie Sugar Daddy Nail Polish
1 oz Essie Fed Up Nail Polish

Mixing Directions: Start with a base coat then apply one coat of Sugar Daddy, let dry completely, then finish with one coat of Fed Up.  Let dry and reach for another cocktail.  Your nails will glisten against the backdrop of the cocktail.

 

 

Wet Kiss:

1 oz Avon Ultra Color Rich Moisture seduction lipstick in Red Kiss
1 oz Smashbox In Bloom lip gloss in Endless Kiss

Mixing Directions: Start by applying a coat of Avon Ultra Color Rich Moisture seduction lipstick in Red Kiss.  Wow, seduction, Red Kiss…I’m loving this cocktail already!  Then apply a small amount of Smashbox In Bloom Lip Gloss in Endless Kiss over for a sexy pucker.
