Refreshing mojitos made with premium rum… delish!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Diageo. All opinions are 100% mine. What cocktails remind you of summer? I can think of many, but to me, nothing screams "summer" more than a nice cold Mojito. A Mojito is a Latin-inspired drink which is made by muddling sugar, lime and mint together in a glass with ice, adding a premium rum, topping with club soda for effervescence, and garnishing with additional mint and lime. It is a really simple drink to make. For those who ... Continue Reading

Save some cash and put it towards summer fun!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.   What are some of your favorite summer activities?

That's a lot of money just to be able ... Continue Reading

Cue the pomp and circumstance…

Wrapping up school (which is finally over... for the time being, until I figure out what to do about grad school), trying to make some money by working at my current internship job (going okay), finishing up with moving (time consuming and stressful), and trying to maintain some kind of a social life (sometimes difficult) all at the same time. Overall, the past two months have been a blur. Surprisingly, I only had one final ... Continue Reading

What to do now?

This guest post from Lewis Beck I still have a little bit of work to do before we can officially launch our website and get our new business off the ground. I had hoped it would be ready earlier in the year but there's only so many hours in the day and there are so many things to do! Recently I took the final step of doing some research on concerning credit card and bank card transactions and I think we have everything in line to accept payments now the way we want to. I'm ...
