On the Rocks: Corkscrew.

Decidedly un- fall, the Corkscrew is my personal shove off to summer.

– 1 1/2 oz light rum
– 1/2 oz dry vermouth
– 1/2 oz peach liqueur
– Squeeze of lime juice

Combine all four ingredients in a cocktail shaker and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lime peel.

Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 09.

A few weeks ago Pantone released their color predictions for Spring 09 and I have to say, I’m really in love with most of them.

“Spring traditionally evokes a sense of freshness and new beginnings, with sprouting shoots and blossoming flowers that inspire designers to breakout of the winter doldrums. Bright colors return to the top 10 list for spring ’09, as designers incorporate vibrant pops into their collections, yet temper the vibrancy with deeper, translucent or neutral tones.”


Herb Stand.

I’ve grown herbs before but always neglect to use them. And then I feel guilty. I love that the Herb Stand put herbs and scissors in the same place – making it way more probable that I’d use both. And that’s not even the end of the functionality story – the pots are also easy to separate or attach to one another.
