I don’t care what season it is, give me a tropical cocktail and I’m set. Perhaps it’s the flavorful garnishes, usually consisting of pineapple or coconut. Maybe it’s that it reminds me of sitting on the beach, no matter what temperature it actually is outside. Or it could even be that distinct tiki feel, even if it’s not in a tiki glass.

Either way, tropical cocktails are my JAM. So, when I spotted ‘Coco-Lada’ by The Owl’s Brew, I knew exactly what I had to make. The team over at The Owl’s Brew is BRILLIANT. They’ve crafted teas specifically for cocktails. Major ‘aha!’ moment, am I right?

The tea I made this Tropical Rum Coco-Lada with is a blend of black tea, chai spices, coconut pieces, and pineapple juice. SO much yum in one bottle.

Naturally, I needed to go the tropical route with this one and so here we find ourselves with another cocktail on another glorious Friday. The weekend is so close I can taste it and it tastes a lot like this tropical humdinger of a cocktail. Grab the recipe below!

I must be completely loosing my mind today! Spent all day listening on repeat the bushes of love (crazy song parody of star wars) and the past three hours instead of taking a break from work i’m sitting here creating 100mb gifs with hues changing frame by frame and trying to figure out how to create a live wallpaper for you guys.

No luck with the second, and your screens might completely freeze with 5mb gif i uploaded but hey! I’m being totally creative and adoring these colors right now!

I know i hardly ever post about interior, day’s or fashion (besides my wiw) but now that we’re done with our shopping i’d love to give you a glimpse of our tropical / island home inspiration. I’m no interior designer (at least not anymore) so putting all our ideas and mood was a bit tricky. Theo and i have two completely different styles, but we both agreed that we wanted that we love white, grey tones, lots of wood and greenery. 
This natural style, is definitely my favourite trend right now, and i’m hoping it will be for quite a while! You’ve already helped me with plants, and i’m all ears to hear and learn more from you. So what’s your favourite interior style at the moment?

For the love of art, and because my Apple family needs a relaxing wallpaper, to warm me and calm me down, as it was a horribly stressful week. It may be the very first time i finish work today in noon, in like.. months. I’ll be enjoying some coffee, snuggle on the couch, play some sims 4 (how awesome is it?) and Vampire Diaries. Yesssss Friday, couldn’t get any better! Have a good one friends!

And the tropical obsession keeps coming. A few days ago, we had a coffee by the beach with a bit cloudy weather, but it was still simply delightful. This weather right now is just the best. Not too hot, not too cold. A long print skirt (yes with palms of course) with browns, pastels, whites and neon is the exact outfit i would love to wear on Saturday night, for a drink, on the beach. 

Good news, that’s not far.
