We're going to a wedding this weekend and I wanted to make a fun little kitchen DIY for their gift- hence the birth of these gold animal bottle stoppers.
WHAT YOU NEED:
-little plastic animals (I got mine at michaels)
-cork stoppers (any craft store)
-gorilla super glue
-gold spray paint
I started by spray painting the animals, make sure you give them a good 3-4 coats. Flip them from front to back, top & bottom each with their own coat. Make sure you didn't miss any spots before you move on to the next step. TIP* Make sure you use animals who's bellies fit directly onto the cork. My first (failed) attempt I used animals who's feet were the only part glued to the cork. I quickly realized that these weren't going to stay attached. I then used animals where I could attach their bellies directly to the cork and they worked perfectly. Make sure the animals are dry and the next step is to glue the animals down. I put some gorilla super glue onto the cork and then pressed the animal down and held for 30 seconds. And thats it, they're done. Happy DIY!

We recently hosted a 1st day of summer party and served this signature cocktail. It is so fun and perfect for summer, one of my new favorites!
Watermelon Mojito, serves one.
8 mint leaves
juice from one lime
4 chunks of seedless watermelon (seedless is important)
1 Tbs white sugar (or simple syrup)
1.5 ounces of white rum (1 shot)
Directions: Muddle the mint leaves, lime juice & watermelon. Add sugar and mix well. Fill glass with ice and add white rum. Top off with club soda and garnish with a lime wedge and sprig of mint leaves.
