sparkle and glam
|/ night sky nails via a glamorous little side project /|
i didn't really have a hens/bachelorette party since the timing was just a bit crazy around the holidays, but i did have a nice girly evening complete with cocktails, sequins and good friends.
the theme was 'fashionably bombed - the wedding edition' based on a great fashion/cocktail website dominique and i found while searching for drinks recipes called fashionably bombed (visit website, fall in love). the task was to wear something fabulous - sequins, fur, feathers, lace, bling - and taste some cocktail creations.

most of the cocktail recipes were taken from the fashionably bombed website and adapted to what i had on hand and could get on short notice. i then added some wedding-themed names and we were off mixing! (our menu below)
