As always, happy pinning.
It doesn’t get much better than Emma Stone at the premiere of “Birdman” in this gauzy black Valentino. Her fair skin and new short ‘do compliment the dress perfectly, I personally love that she kept the jewelry to a minimum with just a few gold rings.
The actress departed from the bold colors and quirky hair styles we have seen from her in the past, all of which were gorgeous, and opted for a more classic, grown- up look. I think it’s safe to say Miss Stone may be the fashion standout this week, and she didn’t even attend an award show.
What better way to celebrate the changing season than with some super fancy, awe-inspiring, Fall cocktails?
As we say goodbye to the long hot days and balmy nights, and welcome in that familiar chill, we also say adios to those Vodka Pineapples and Bahama Mamas. Yes, it’s that time again, time for the darker beers and the always-invited-to-the-party Whiskeys and Bourbons. These beverages are back to warm both the body and soul.
Half & Half
8 ounces ale
8 ounces stout
Pour the ale first, allowing for the foam to settle. Once settled, pour your stout over an upside down spoon. This creates a really neat ombre effect your guests will be talking about long into the night. Plus, you get to enjoy two of your favorite brews together
Bourbon & Ginger
4 ozs Bourbon
1 can of ginger ale
4 glasses filled with ice
4 limes wedges
Distribute the bourbon and the ginger evenly amongst the 4 glasses. Squeeze one lime wedge into each. Serve immediately.
Michelade Beer Cocktail
1 lime zested and cut in half
1 tablespoon of salt
1/2 cup of low-sodium tomato juice
1 teaspoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
12 ounce bottle of lager beer
Stir together the lime zest and salt. Cut lime in half and rub cut side over the rim of the glasses . Dip the rims in the lime salt to coat. Squeeze some lime juice in the ice-filled glasses, then evenly distribute the tomato juice, peppers, and beer. Stir and serve.
3 cups of cola
A little more than 1 cup of dark rum
3/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
6 Orange Wedges
Partially fill glasses with ice. Add 1/2 cup cola, 3 tablespoons rum, and 1/8 teaspoon vanilla. Squeeze in orange slices.
Pumpkin Old Fashioned
*For 1 drink
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 1/2 ounces of bourbon
1 ounce of maple syrup
1 ounce of grand mariner
Combine puree, bourbon, maple syrup, grand mariner, and a dash of bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled glass with ice. Add orange twist as garnish
Happy Fall drinking.

This year’s Emmy’s were pretty darn predictable, which is why I am so happy to say that most of the surprises were on the red carpet. There were a noticeable amount of chic modern white gowns, along with a few geometric patterns, and one notably re-done ball gown that I will be swooning over for months. Then there were the high-fashion, no apology standouts, such as Lena Dunham and Sarah Paulson who both pulled off kooky runway couture without breaking a sweat.
As far as top honors go, I have a three way tie between Sarah Hyland, January Jones and Allison Williams. All three ladies brought something different to the table this year. I love seeing fresh young designers being represented, and today it was clear there is a new calvary to be called upon.
