Geeky Cocktail | Overwatch “Piece Of Cake!” Shot

Happy Friday! Yes, we have yet another Overwatch geeky cocktail! Drunkenwatch is an ongoing collaboration with Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight.

This week we’re doing something a little different – Mercy-themed for her voice line “Piece of cake!” This is also based on the fact that we wanted birthday cake shots becuase my birthday is tomorrow :) So of course I used this opportunity to dress in casual Mercy and take some photos :) I’ve never done anything birthday-related on the blog so I was really excited for this.

This recipe was originally found on Bailey’s website, though we added a modification.

You will need (makes 2):
  • 2 oz of cake flavored vodka
  • 1 oz of Baileys (original recipe calls for Vanilla Cinnamon, but it’s seasonal so we used plain), OR
  • 1 oz of RumChata (for a different flavor other than coffee)
  • Whipped cream
  • Sprinkles

Directions:
  • Mix the vodka and Bailey’s/RumChata with ice in a shaker
  • Strain into shot glasses, and fill almost to the top
  • Add whipped cream and sprinkles
  • Cheers!

May Faves

I don’t know where you live but it has been unseasonably cold and raining since May started – it’s such a bummer! I was getting excited at the prospect of warm weather and light jackets but nope, the coats and tights remain. Despite the gloom, here are some fun favorites for May!

Antisocial Clamshell Pin | This is the perfect pin for an introvert like me that still wants to feel that magical pull but wants to spend time alone ;) Who doesn’t love a mermaid theme?

Galaxy Momiji Doll| I love everything space-related and this cute gal by Luli Bunny for Momini is throwing some sassy 70’s vibes – she’d make a great addition to any vinyl toy collection.

Snow White Bag | Or in the witty way Modcloth names items, “It’s Off To Quirk We Go”.

Tangerine Butter Cookies | I’ve lost my sweet tooth over the years but oh my gosh do these cookies from Bakers Royale look delicious. They are baked with olive oil which I’m really curious about!

Blackberry Lavender Champagne Cocktail | This recipe from The Adventure Bite looks and sounds so refreshing – and it’s pretty, too!

Teddy Bear Umbrella | OK, I know it’s raining, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use a cute umbrella! The teddy bears on this one remind me of rilakkuma ^^

Unicorn Table Lamp | What does it say about me that I love a lamp found on a children’s site? Probably that I should be 20 years younger…but seriously, how cute is this lamp??

 

What are you most excited about this month?

Free Printable Planning Stickers | May 2017

I fully admit, I’ve gotten deep into “happy planning”, or planner decorating each week. I started last year and bought an even bigger planner to decorate this year ^^ I save all sorts of goodies from conventions and packaging to use as scrapbook material for each week. It’s gotten to be a “Sunday ritual” for me to choose a theme and decorate for that week. It’s pretty therapeutic, even if I don’t exactly use a planner on the daily. It’s mostly used to schedule blog posts and decide what to work on each night.

Because of that, and because I’m still trying to keep up with #ArtEveryWeek, I thought it would be fun to offer free printable stickers for you to use in your own planners! All you need is a printer and some good sticker paper (I like this paper).

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! Yikes, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these!

I couldn’t be happier that the weather is starting to warm up – I actually fractured my foot back in January and was in a boot for 8 weeks D: I didn’t get much exercise during that time so I’m really glad I can start going for long walks again.

Happy Friday!
Happy Friday!

Unicorn Pinata – Ok, I’m totally posting this one because of the unicorn frappuccino’s…which by the way, I haven’t tried. I admit I have a large curiosity about them but from what I’ve heard, it’s not worth it. So instead have this fun little piñata – or make an army of many

1930’s Inspired Seventh Heaven Cocktail – it’s no surprise I love a good cocktail, and this vintage one both looks and sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try it out!

Anti Depressants Poster – how cute is this poster! Kitties sure do make a good anti-depressant, and this poster makes me smile so much.

What are you loving this week?

Geeky Cocktail | Widow’s Kiss

Another Friday, another installment of Overwatch-themed geeky cocktails! I’m again collaborating on Drunkenwatch with my stream friends Skowalz, AcornBandit, and silenced_knight. This week features silenced’s main, Widomaker in “Widow’s Kiss”. This fun purple drink is dark and mysterious like Widow, and uses some french liqueurs to match her origin.

If you want to go really fancy, add some salt to the rim for when someone on your team picks widowmaker (unless its silenced_knight). s( ^ ‿ ^)-b
