Can we take a second to talk about our very very deep love of frozé? I spend the summer months selecting restaurants and happy hour haunts by whether or not they provide frozen beverages. What frozé brings to the table that most frozen beverages do not, is that it is rarely sickly sweet and is simply an improved upon version of its original rose self. A glass of frozé is simply a wonderful moment in your day, sitting on a patio with friends, appreciating everything that is perfect about summer.
ANYWAY, we love frozé so much that we made a video about it! It’s a little awkward and there’s sound in the background and lots of jumpy edits, but we had so much fun making it! And hey, if anyone wants to give us video editing lessons, we would really like that.
We know that summer’s coming to a sad end, but we want to squeeze every last slushie-filled drop out of it and we want you guys to join us. This recipe is so easy and so good. We based it off of Bon Appetit’s recipe, which you can find here.
Anyway, enough chitchat, let’s get to the video!
We. Love. The. Oscars. You know this. Planning on throwing an Oscar bash? We highly recommend that you do (they’re the best). Here are a few of our favorite ideas for this year.

If you’ve been following along with this blog for a while you know that the Oscars are BIG DEAL over at The Little Things. A very big deal. Our first post on this blog was about our Oscar Soirée, which you can see here. As the month goes on we’ll share some of our favorite Oscars DIY’s with you and also a few new ones. But this post is about getting to the heart of the matter- watching all of the nominated films. The list was just released so… ready.set.go! By my count you have 35 days to watch 60 films. But some of those are shorts, so no big deal. This year was the first year that we got savvy and started watching the golden globe noms in preparation (go figure, only took us five years to come to this brilliant idea?). It’s been helpful, but we still have a lot to watch (eeek).
Okay, I’ll admit, I have sort of a love/hate relationship with jello shots. I love them because they are undeniably FUN. Especially when they’re colorful and God forbid they come in those tacky plastic syringes, because then I am a goner. I mean, those are so great. Makes me want to host a doctor themed party, which is pretty weird. Annnyway, rambling aside, the negative of jello shots is that they usually taste pretty terrible. Super sweet in the beginning and then just vodka. Bleh. So making my own is usually the way to go (no liquor aftertaste here!). My recipe may use a tad less alcohol than most, so feel free to adjust at will, if you’re tougher than me!
