Firstly, I wanted to express my sadness for all the victims who have lost their lives in this horrific hurricane, my prayers go out to all the families. And prayers to all those people who lost their homes in that terrible massive fire in Queens last night. I know I was complaining about my dumb uprooted tree and all the property damage but I have to say my neighborhood experienced the less severe aspect of this brutal storm. Thank God it's over and now we can start putting back together the pieces. I hope everyone is safe and get's their power restored quickly. XOXO
Due to the Hurricane mess, I didn't have time to add a thorough product review so I'll be adding a quick and fun post on Halloween Candy Infused Vodka from my favorite Food Network TV star, Nadia G's Bitchin Kitchen. If you have never seen her series, check her out because it's definitely not your mothers cooking show. She's funny, fierce and can really throw down in the kitchen. This recipe for her candy vodka was part of this year's Halloween special and is a really fabulous idea to turn cocktail hour with the girlies into a drink fest for your sweet tooth. I promise to resume my usual posting soon and to announce the winners. Please have patience. Thank you. Stay beautiful! XOXO

Making the peach martini: To a martini glass add ice, an ounce of peach ring vodka, fresh orange juice, and a splash of cranberry. Garnish with a peach ring.
It’s Halloween, and just because you’re not going door to door for candy or pranking, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve some of the sweetness this holiday has to offer. Sip responsibly, or end up with your shoe stuck in the neighbors jack-o-lantern, your choice. Happy Halloween!
