      Color Collective: 10 Links to News & Hues, Vol. 11

      Color Collective: 10 Links to News & Hues, Vol. 11

      Got the travel bug again? I definitely do but I'm playing it safe and taking short/day trips not far from home for now. Once it's safe to expand my horizons, I have a long list of places I'm headed to. This week's list will help you plan colorful trips of all sizes:

       

      • I'm not big on tour traveling. Call me a control freak but vacations shouldn't be about schedules and timetables. Nevertheless, a few of these international food tours would make me break my own rules. 
      • Washington, DC has always been a weekend getaway destination for me. Despite all that has occurred there in recent months (and years), I can't wait to return to check out some of the places Vice President Kamala Harris frequents. (Travel and Leisure)
      • Pop these in your carry-on for a luxurious moisturizing skin care treat.
      • You'll be able to find your luggage on the airport baggage carousel with ease with one of these colorful spinners.

       

      Until next time, may your life be filled with COLOR!

      Colorful Cocktails: Why You Need My Tasty Turmeric Tonic For Your Next Weekend Brunch

      My Tasty Turmeric Tonic Recipe - JulRe Designs LLC

      I have fond memories of one particular weekend brunch at the renowned abc Kitchen by Jean-Georges in New York City pre-pandemic. The entire meal was divine. Everything was fresh and organic, served by staff that really paid attention to detail. The room was packed and buzzy. From where we were sitting, we could see into the charming and whimsical abc Carpet & Home store, which gave me the inspiration to do this post. But the standout was a non-alcoholic cocktail I had while waiting at the bar to be seated - their Turmeric Tonic.

      In case you weren't aware, the main ingredient contains a compound called curcumin, which boasts amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. So while the drink's taste was warm and citrusy sweet, it was downright healthy too! I couldn't wait to get home and try to recreate it and since sharing is caring, here's my recipe. I hope you'll try it!
