A holiday weekend treat!

I enjoy a Mint Julep as much as the next MJ girl, but a 4th of July barbeque would not be complete without SANGRIA! As you're planning your own menu for this weekend's festivities, here is a recipe for white sangria I'm excited to share with you!
Ingredients: 2 bottles dry white wine; 3/4 cup brandy; 1/2 cup triple sec; 3/4 cup simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, heat until sugar dissolves); 3/4 cup passion fruit puree; 3 oranges, sliced into thin rounds; 3 green apples, cored and sliced thin; 2 lemons, sliced into thin rounds. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher. Refrigerate covered at least 3 hours. Serve over ice. Enjoy!

It's a Wrap!

These stunning wrap bracelets have been walking out of the store on wrists all week!

"All the Rage" Wrap Bracelets are all the rage ... $16 in Gold and Silver
Featured with Sara Danielle's black suede & moonstone double-wrap bracelet, $92.

Forty Winks Trunk Show!

Our favorite little lingerie boutique is hosting a "Between the Sheets" Trunk Show this weekend ... if you haven't been in yet, stop by Forty Winks this Saturday!

Some colorful inspiration!

If you've stopped into Mint Julep recently or followed our blog at all this summer, you surely know by now that all the Julep girls love having a lot of color in their life-- whether it's the outfits we wear or the colorful props in our windows (you've seen the beach balls, I hope!) we love everything bright and cheerful about the summer season. Incorporating some art into my day away from Mint Julep yesterday, I took myself to the MFA to see the Chihuly exhibit, an incredible display of glass blown sculptures by Dale Chihuly, one of the world's most famous and innovative glass blowers. The imaginative, colorful forms and mind-blowing displays look like a fantasy that's come alive. If you find yourself with some free time, stop at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts to see it for yourself!

'Tis the season!

It may or may not be my Pennsylvanian roots, but there's nothing that makes me happier than a visit to one of our local farmer's markets. It's really a highlight of my summer days here in the Square. Lucky for me, the Charles Square Farmer's Market is every Friday afternoon and there is a second market in the Harvard courtyard every Tuesday all the way until October!

Cambridge Farmers Markets supply you with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables that are locally grown and great to bring home! Farmer markets help to improve regional farm viability, consumer nutrition, and community social and economic development. While enjoying a beautiful day in Harvard Square, be sure to stop by one of the markets to pick up some fresh produce or a fresh-baked piece of pie! Visit for more info!
