World Cupmas may be over, and United 2026 is still nearly a decade away, but, there is no time like the present to celebrate our neighbours to the south a la Chicharito-style.

Thereby, in the spirit of celebration, salut México with an incredible cocktail containing three infusions from Tanteo Spirits reflecting the colors of the their flag: Jalapeño, Chipotle, and Habanero.

Coincidence? I think not, considering each of these are common ingredients in every day Mexican cuisine.

So what better way to say, ¡Viva México! than with a Jabapotle Cocktail. [Read more…]

Holy sprinkles, Strawberry Shortcake!

There is totally a Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) x Sephora collaboration hitting the shelves next week.

 

“We are so excited to partner with Museum of Ice Cream on such a fun, unique collection,” said Beth Hayes, VP/DMM of Sephora Collection.

“Museum of Ice Cream’s unique installations not only inspired a number of fun products for our clients to play with, but also Sephora Collection’s playful aesthetic shine through.

We are excited to see the client’s creativity come alive with this vibrant collection.”

 

In case you live under a rock, or not in a realm of things that are pink and sparkly and girlie (like I do!), the MOIC was an experiential museum, an ode to everything sweet and ice cream, that launched in NYC in 2016.

It was a place where you could swim in sprinkles, bathe in cherries, get sugared on too many gummies and have Key Lime Pie ice-cream for dinner (Miami edition.) [Read more…]

Rugged, robust and ready for anything, the watch parallels on Hamilton’s rich military history.

(On a side note, the brand has also appeared in over 450 major motion pictures since 1932 at its inception.)

Blacked out. Murdered-out. Talk about delicious (… imagine the visual feel, sans practicality, of a mixed media matte and glossy Lotus Exige Stealth in the form of a timepiece.)

Creating the perfect stealth look for Ryan, the 42mm stainless steel case is full black and made with the exclusive Swiss-made H-21 automatic [Read more…]

New for Fall 2018, Sally Hansen launches two texturizing “overcoats” adding to their Miracle Gel collection, Color Whirl.

The original Miracle Gel nail varnishes launched about four-years ago as Sally Hansen’s version of an at-home gel manicure (i.e., it does away with UV lights and the acetone pool-like removal process, and replaces it with two simple bottles of nail polish.)

ColourGel2

The original two-step system is such that, one bottle serves as the base colour, and the other, the top coat, as the ‘gel.’

Compared to traditional nail varnishes, Miracle Gel colours [Read more…]
