Holiday Cocktail | Moscow Mule

                       

A Moscow Mule, also known as a Vodka buck, is a mule made with a high-quality vodka, a spicy ginger beer (I love Reed’s Ginger Beer), and lime juice, garnished with a slice or wedge of lime. It is usually served in a copper mug. This simple cocktail has been a go to for me for months now. I prefer to add muddled mint leaves to mine for added flavor. Dropping a few cranberries into your mugs is a great way to add a seasonal touch to this yummy drink! 

Main alcohol: Vodka

Ingredients: 4 oz Ginger beer, 1 1/2 oz Vodka, 1/6 oz Lime juice

Preparation: Combine vodka and ginger beer in a copper mug or highball glass filled with ice. Add lime juice. Stir gently and garnish with a lime slice. 

Served: On the rocks; poured over ice.

Drinkware: Copper mug or highball glass

Ginger Blue Naturals Product Review | Allison Marie

 
Winter is the best time to focus on skin care. With the dry
air inside and cooler temperatures outside,  it’s very important to exfoliate,
moisturize, and use lip balms. Ginger Blue Naturals has you covered with all
three. An all-natural body care line that is handmade in Roanoke, West
Virginia. The owner, Lee Gainer, can be seen at Tamarack, Oglebayfest, and the
Bridgeport Farmer’s Market selling these products
 
If you like essential oils, then you will LOVE her products because they’re very therapeutic. There are no fragrances or additives. And
you only need a small amount. The logo and packaging are so lovely and one of my favorite things about her brand. I love that her packaging is an extension of her
natural theme with flowers, antlers, and dark glass jars to protect the
essential oils. I had the chance to sample a few of her products and my skin
truly does feels great after using them for a couple weeks.
Keep reading to hear more about about these local products and what I thought of them… You’re going to want these for Christmas, I just know it! ; )
The Lavender Sage Salve smells like menthol with a little hint of peppermint. It does an excellent job to soften up dry cuticles and moisturize elbows. You can use it on any chapped surface.
 
The Patchouli Body Butter has a musk, almost forest-like scent. It made my skin soft for the entire day and the scent did not fade away.
 
The Chai Spice Sugar Scrub has a spicy but sweet scent. It makes my skin smooth, even the backs of my arms which tend to be a little rough. It also allowed my spray tan to go on more evenly! 
 
The lip balms make your lips kissable. She has several scents like: Lemon-lime and Clove & Sweet Orange. But my personal favorite would have to be the “Blush” lip stain (far right). It adds a little touch of color that is a pretty pink that is very natural-looking and I love to use this on my minimal makeup days for a fresh look!
 
Thank you, Lee, for allowing me to review a few of your products! I have been spreading the word about Ginger Blue! Ladies, I definitely recommend her products and would love for you to try them and let me know what you thought! Who doesn’t want all-natural products that smell and feel great?
 
Go and check out Ginger Blue Naturals’ website: www.mkt/gingerbluenaturals. She does have other products and even carries a few products for the men in your life! You can shop the online store (FREE shipping!!) or catch them at the next indoor winter farmer’s market in Bridgeport on December 13th. I will be picking up some of their Lemongrass all-natural deodorant when I go.
 
 
Remember to support small businesses everywhere and shop local this holiday season! These products would make great stocking stuffers, too!

Target Gift Guide + a GIVEAWAY!

December is here and we couldn’t be more excited for all we have in store for you this month! Amanda and I spent a Saturday morning at Target a couple weeks ago sipping Starbucks and browsing the aisles for cute, practical gifts for the ladies in our lives, and we wanted to make sure ALL of the gifts were $30 or under! Luckily, Target never disappoints (am I right?) so it was pretty easy to pick out what we wanted to include in our holiday gift guide. These were some of our favorites that made the list:
 
8. Cabin Fever Sweatshirt
This marble + wood cheese board is really nice! For $19.99, you could put that in a gift bag with a copper mug and that would be such a fun + ideal gift for your favorite hostess. 

 

 
Because Target and Starbucks just get together. ; )

Festive December


We will be sharing our holiday gift guide during the first week of December. We spent a morning at Target finding great gift ideas, and the best part is — they’re all under $30! 


Contests are so fun, right?!  Be sure to follow The Wild Revival’s social media pages to get in on the goodies we will be giving away in December! 


Our beauty contributor, Allison, will be sharing holiday makeup tutorials to help get you ready for holiday parties and get-togethers. We encourage you to try out her looks and make them your own using #TWRHolidayGlam. Doing that just might enter you into a contest to win some free makeup! 😉 but we can’t give away all of our secrets just yet!


The most exciting announcement of all is… The Wild Revival’s Holiday Gathering! After a month off from hosting, we’re so ready to bring you all together for a little bit of creativity + connection. We’re looking forward to gathering together with our favorite ladies in a cozy, laid-back atmosphere full of festive touches. We’ll be making DIY Christmas ornaments while
enjoying live music, complete with a hot chocolate bar + sweets. 


You can get your tickets HERE. A portion of each ticket sold will be given to our local Salvation Army Angel Tree program to help provide Christmas presents to
children in need this season. 
Once you register + pay, we’ll send you an e-mail with details and directions to our event location.


This is going to be a lot of fun! Bring yourself (and a friend!) and join us for our holiday gathering! We want to get more women involved in our gatherings.
