skinny caramel white russians.

White Russians always remind me of college. My favorite bar in Lawrence, Jazzhaus, offered $1 anything on Tuesdays, and needless to say my friends and I camped out there each week. For some reason we started a tradition of drinking white russians. Considering my collegiate appetite for drinking, it haunts me to think of how many of those we would have in a night - probably equivalent to chugging a half a galloon of half & half. Eck. Thank god for youthful metabolism. Now a days, since the freedom to eat or drink anything without leaving a mark is long gone, I've switched my WR cravings to a more practical mix. I'll admit, its a bit of an abomination to the real deal, but it's still pretty freaking tasty!

Start by trimming the inside of a glass with the chocolate (or use caramel if you're going all out). Mix the milk, Kahlua and vodka and pour over ice.  

Skinny White Russian:
1 shot (oz.) Kahlua
1 shot (oz.) caramel vodka
1 cup vanilla soymilk (I drink Silk)
Sugar-free chocolate syrup

{if adding chocolate, keep away from bulldogs. Sorry B.}

sites we love: storenvy.

I have (yet another) channel for shopping addiction fixes. 

Storenvy is essentially the lovechild of Pinterest + Etsy. It's a visual board of all things pin-worthy, but buyable with just a click. What's even better, most items are adorable, independently made and extremely affordable! (I got the necklace below for $3.99. huzzah!)

Here are a few of my recent purchases: 


Your bank account may hate it, but your closet will LOVE it. Enjoy!
