Fall Style Secrets

We continue our introduction of all those beautiful Fall colors with this Pantone color of the year: Reflecting Pond. This deep and rich blue tone pairs great with earthy tones, a comfy pair of boyfriend jeans and rugged combat boots. Our new Nursing Scarf in Mayura combines this oh-so-cool blue hue with a modern and crisp feather print. Together they make the perfect outfit for a leisure day at the park or a windswept walk by the beach.

Cocktails and Mocktails

One of the hardest things about being pregnant can be socializing. Something about the coziness of pregnancy, not to mention the tiredness, can mean that a Saturday night at home with a take-out and a good movie sounds much more attractive than a night out – especially when everyone else will be enjoying a cocktail or two! Stone cold sober, with tipsy friends can leave you feeling a little left out!

We asked around the office and the consensus was – Mocktails are the way to go.  Simply using a wine glass or a martini glass could help a little with at least feeling like we are still a part of the party – add to that a yummy and healthy Mocktail and you’ll be back!

Here is the recipe for one we tried recently.

CUCUMBER MOCKTINI

IMG_0466

Ingredients:
(Makes 2 large Mocktails)
4 small Japanese cucumbers
Simple syrup (1/4 cup sugar with 1Ž4 cup hot water, allow to cool)
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Fresh mint or rosemary

Directions:
1.     Slice 4 thin pieces to use for garnish
2.     Peel the skin
3.     Cut in half and scoop out the seeds
4.     Finely chop
5.     Using a metal sieve (or cheese cloth if you have it) press the juice through into a bowl. You will be surprised how much juice they yield – keep pressing, stir and press again. You should expect around 4 oz of cucumber juice.
6.     Add juice, simple syrup, lemon juice and ice to a cocktail shaker
7.     Strain and serve in a martini glass
8.     Garnish with the cucumber slices and a sprig of mint or rosemary

Adding a fine Vodka to this recipe takes it from Mocktail to Cocktail very easily – be sure to garnish a little differently so you don’t mix them up!

Fall Style Secrets

Fall is officially here and so are rich, sumptuous autumnal hues. We took inspiration from those hues when we designed our Fall collection. Here is one – our new Infinity Nursing Scarf in Marsala – inspired by Pantone’s color of the year.
