Cupid Cocktail: Raspberry Chocolate Kiss Martini

17 days from now, you will have the privilege of concocting this dazzling martini for the one you love. Even if it is a first, or second date, and it's not exactly love yet, you can at least fall in love with this cocktail found on Martha Stewart, online.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Raspberries
1/2 oz. Mint syrup
1 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Cranberry juice
In a shaker, add raspberries that have been pre-crushed (not destroyed), with syrup, vodka, ice and cranberry juice. Shake very well. Shake again just to make sure everything is well combined (and your fingers are near frostbite). Double strain into a martini glass that's been rimmed in finely shredded flecks of chocolate.

Japanese Sake Has Amazing Benefits For Your Skin
No worries, you won't get tipsy. If you enjoy a few shots of sake every now and then, you'll be excited to know that the warm drink actually has some amazing benefits when it comes to your skin. Yes, you read that correctly. A Japanese rice wine you usually pair with your sushi can have you waking up like Beyonce. Flawless, honey. According to our favorite girl Chrissy Teigen, she informed viewers on her daytime talk show Fab Life, that the popular skincare brand SK-II's is inspired by none other than sake. While most of us are probably wide mouthed with surprise, for the Japanese, using sake for your skin has been a tradition for years. They even go as far as bathing in the wine on New Year's Day to rid themselves of evil spirits. According the SK-II's, they use an ingredient in their skincare line called pitera ["derived from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process"] which is a strain of yeast found in the sake. How amazing and interesting is that? It's becoming a trend to find skincare products that happen to be infused with this all natural ingredient and the results happen to be amazing. So, grab yourself a shot glass, throw one back and keep scrolling to see a few products that will give you the skin you've always drank -- oops, I meant dreamt of. Fresh® Sake Bath [get yours here] SK-II Pitera Essence Set [get yours here] boscia Sake Balm [get yours here] Would you give any of these sake infused products a try?

What A Coke Does To Your Body In 1 Hour
I'll be the first to admit that I love Coca Cola. But it's absolutely horrible for us. A very detailed infographic supplied by TheRenegadePharmacist.com has officially proven again how bad Coke is for your body (WE KNOW). The American CDC has said that 25% of Americans drink soda on a regular basis which is a hefty reason why obesity has run rampant. Sugar is the main culprit since an average can of soda can contain 3 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons if in a 12-ounce-bottle. Coke is one of the most popular soft drinks in the United States with a massive marketing empire so there will never be a day where we won't see it somewhere. But there comes a time where you need to take a moment and see what you're putting into your body. Let's take a look : All it takes is ONE Coke : First 10 Minutes : 10 teaspoon of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. In 20 Minutes : Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your live responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.) In 40 Minutes : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. In 45 Minutes : Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. In 60 Minutes : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine providing a further boost in metabolism. This is a compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. After 60 Minutes : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. As the rave inside of you died down you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in theCoke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system of build strong bones and teeth. Why you should care? - Coke weakens bones and teeth. - Increases your chance for getting diabetes. - It slows your metabolism, especially long term. - Aspartame in the soda leads to disease and organ irritation. - Coke has negative affects on fertility. - It leads to weight gain. - Can worsen asthma or increase risk for heart disease. - Cancer, Osteoporosis, and Kidney issues are common in people who drink soda. - It's expensive to continually buy it. - Diet sodas are a scam and false advertising. All soda is bad for you. - No nutritional value. - Raised cholesterol and specifically increased belly fat. Do I need to say more? Coke or soda for that matter is never a good idea. (But don't worry, I still love it.)
Wedding Cocktail Hour - Don't Go Broke!
Not too long ago I remember giving sage advice to a mother of the bride about cocktail hour. She was so resolute in scrimping and saving on every last inch of the wedding prep that she actually over-spent. Clearly she didn't listen to a word I said. Well that was a complete and utter waste. My mouth was moving. Sounds were coming out. And what I could have been doing is what I should have been doing: pouring another glass of wine. Here's how you keep the booze flowing without going broke: 1. Partner with your favorite bar. Let them provide the beer and wine with a limited cocktail menu. 2. Limited doesn't mean cut-off. It means limited variety. 3. Keep your cocktails to three signature drinks. TIP By keeping your cocktails liquor base the same, you can reduce your booze costs dramatically. Consider doing rum cocktails or vodka cocktails. The Greyhound Cocktail Ingredients Freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice (strained of pulp and seeds) Flaky sea salt or kosher salt Agave nectar Ruby red grapefruit wedges, for garnish Procedures 1. Fill a short glass to the top with ice. 2. Pour in grapefruit tarragon infused vodka ⅓ of the way. 3. Fill the remaining ⅔ with freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice. 4. Transfer liquids and ice to a cocktail shaker. Add a small pinch of flaky sea salt, then add agave nectar to taste*. 5. Shake vigorously until well chilled. 6. Pop off the top of your cocktail shaker and pour everything (drink and ice) back into the short glass. Garnish with a fresh wedge of ruby red grapefruit. Makes 1 drink. The White Lady Cocktail Ingredients ice 4 parts dry gin such as Martin Miller's or Beefeater (2 ounces) 1 part Cointreau (1/2 ounce) 1 part fresh lemon juice (1/2 ounce) Procedures 1. Add the gin, Cointreau and lemon juice to a shaker filled with ice. 2. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve. The Clover Club Cocktail Ingredients 1 egg white 1/2 oz lemon juice 1 oz grenadine 2 oz Plymouth gin Procedures 1. Combine liquids and egg white. 2. Shake vigorously (you want your egg white to get super frothy!) 3. Strain and pour into a coupe. Garnish with a couple of fresh raspberries. The Virgin Mojito Mocktail Ingredients 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of fine granulated sugar 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice 15 mint leaves 1 cup club soda Procedures 1. Combine sugar, lime juice, and mint leaves in cocktail shaker. 2. Muddle mint and add about eight ice cubes and shake well. 3. Pour mixture in glasses and top with club soda. Serves two.

Comment choisir sa perruque naturelle ?
Si porter une perruque est lié à des problèmes de santé, alors plusieurs questions se poseront : Vous souhaitez choisir un modèle qui se rapproche le plus de votre coiffure et masquer au maximum votre état ? Ou au contraire, voulez-vous profiter de cette opportunité pour changer d'avis ? Bien entendu, cette décision est personnelle et dépend du rapport avec la maladie de chacun. Pour choisir votre perruque, vous pouvez vous rendre dans un salon de coiffure spécial pour essayer différents modèles et pouvoir poser toutes vos questions. Il y en a à Paris, mais il y en a aussi dans toute la France. Concernant les rendez-vous, il n'y a pas de règles particulières : aussi bien avant qu'après la chute des cheveux, en fonction de vos souhaits et besoins. Certains sites professionnels proposent également des services d'achat de perruques naturelles en ligne, mais vous ne pouvez évidemment pas les essayer avant de retirer votre carte de crédit. En raison de la qualité des cheveux, les perruques naturelles sont les plus chères, avec des prix allant de 500 Euros pour la production à la machine à près de 2000 Euros pour les modèles installés manuellement sur des monofilaments. Les caisses d'assurance maladie et les mutuelles de santé peuvent participer à cet achat, n'hésitez pas à consulter. Porter une perruque femme ne signifie pas toujours tomber malade. Ces dernières années, ils sont plus que jamais apparus sur le tapis rouge, ainsi que dans les rues, où ils sont considérés comme de véritables accessoires de mode. On porte des perruques pour changer la texture des cheveux, tester une nouvelle couleur ou une nouvelle coupe, le résultat naturel est plus luxueux.
