      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!

      There isn't a color palette more exciting than Neon. Punchy, supersaturated hues never go out of style. From Brilliant Blue to Lime Punch to Super Pink, Neons were created to excite. I'm a child of the 70s and 80s who remembers having fluorescent neon posters and black lights that turned my outrageously loudly colored bedroom into my own personal disco complete with strobe lights and Donna Summer and Chic blasting on my record player. Back then, Neon was on trend and fashion statements in these megawatt colors were made daily. So are you already saying, "There's no way I can wear these hues"? I get it. Today, they get trotted out on the fashion runways every few seasons and as a lover of bright, bold colors, I appreciate that. But my commitment to this palette has been long lasting and I don't fear pushing the color envelope with all of that vibrance.

      If you dare, start with a little pop of neon with your basic neutrals for everyday. A belt or a purse. Maybe a cute sandal. Or better yet, go all in during your workouts like I do which is a great way to see that there is no need to fear the brightest of brights. There's a Neon shade(s) for everyone!

      Shades of Green: 10 Pairs of Sunglasses You'll Want to Wear Every Day

      Shades of Green: 10 Pairs of Sunglasses You'll Want to Wear Every Day - JulRe Designs LLC

      With Spring on the way, (the sooner, the better!) I'm reminded that the season truly and completely owns one whole color in the spectrum. That color is GREEN. Inevitably, when that season rolls in, I start to see everything in those fresh shades as it’s a signal in nature that warmer weather is here. I love the color so much because it signifies an abundant life in harmony, and supremely good health - all ways that I try to live my life every day. My adoration of the hue extends into my business with our company's foundational logo of four ombre green leaves, each representing a part of the foundation of our organization's core values: a passion for color, a love of design, respect for our community and a commitment to service to others.

      Of course, my obsession with green wouldn't be a real thing if it didn't carry over to my wardrobe. I think it’s an incorrect assumption that this lively color can only be worn by a few. There’s a shade for everyone! It’s such a fun and energizing color for me that when I put it on, it's hard not to smile! And colorful accessories, like the 10 pairs of sunglasses I found are an easy way to wear the color to make a dynamic impact with any outfit. And adding almost any shade of green will take your OOTD to certainly not-at-all-boring levels. Warby Parker's Virtual Try-On tool is a game changer. You can find your perfect pair of green shades instantly and you can try them before buying with their Home Try-On Program! Find all of my fabulous eyewear finds below and happy shopping!
