Hemingway Daiquiri

My booze of choice when hitting the beach is usually rum, so a daiquiri immediately comes to mind. You can’t do more basic than that (rum, lime juice, sugar), which opens a world of alternatives: shaken or frozen, classic lime or fruity... the daiquiri can be tailored to everyone’s taste.

Cocktail of the week: Beet Mojito

This week, I’m seeing red. But forget the cranberry and tomato juices, I want beets! Bartenders are easily bored with classic cocktails and ingredients, and this is where beets come in: the deep red and sweet-yet-earthy vegetable is available year-round, and is packed with numerous health benefits. Drinking doesn’t always have to be bad for you!

In my excitement for Daft Punk’s previous blog, I came across this song from Stardust, a collaboration between French producers Thomas Bangalter (one half of Daft Punk), Alan Braxe, and vocalist Benjamin Diamond. Together they released only one single “Music Sounds better With You” in 1998. And it’s one. Rocking. Single.

Throwback Thursday: Daft Punk’s “Da Funk”

It's time to revisit our electronic music roots. I was barely a teenager when Daft Punk came out with their first single “Da Funk” in 1995, and it definitely triggered my passion for electronic music. The instrumental song was released in 1997 as part of their first album Homework, which became their first huge commercial hit in France and throughout Europe. “Da Funk” put the duo on the map and brought worldwide attention to French progressive house music.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

All of us girls have seen the movie: she has a wallet full of credit cards that are completely useless from being maxed out, a house full of clothes we probably have never worn, and have bought that useless item we thought we just had to have—when really we didn’t. Being a shopaholic might be a funny topic for a movie, but it does cause some serious stress! There are months when we hide from the mailman, hoping we don’t have to face the gluttony of our spending. Here are a few tips on how to stop the addiction and gain control!

If you had asked me a year ago my thoughts on Kesha, I would’ve answered that I’d rather shoot myself in the foot than listen to her music and she didn’t belong in the same category as my beloved EDM idols. From her irritating pop songs and her trashy look to the stupid dollar sign in her stage name, I wasn’t joining her fanbase anytime soon. Then one day a few months ago, I found myself bouncing up and down in my car to some song on the radio. It turns out it was “Die Young” from yours truly.

Sexiest Beach in the World

Ipanema, Rio was voted the sexiest beach in the world, and for good reason. Along the coast of this skyrise tourist city, the sapphire waves come crashing to powdered sand. The sexiest patrons come to visit the coast and even sexier, barely-there bikinis are a must. The twin peaks of the towering moutnain shadows the beach, but the mood of beach-goers is always lively. Beach volleyball is the main attraction and the competition gets heated.

London Calling

One of my favorite cities that I have visited multiple times. It is London and I thought it was appropriate to talk about London since many people will probably be travelling there this summer. One of the main reasons I love London so much is because it is rich in history! But, this richness of history also translates to the riches needed to visit the city.
