3 Ingredient Blood Orange Paloma

I'm currently obsessed with blood oranges. I basically eat one every day and also figured out a way to peel oranges in about 30 seconds. Casey loves cocktails and creating new recipes so we knew we needed to involve blood oranges. That's how we came up with this delicious blood orange paloma. It's simple and bright and just what you need to get through the end of this winter season.

5 Instagram Templates You Need!

A couple weeks ago Casey was telling me that we should make some Instagram templates, as she had seen a couple floating around the internet and thought it was a good/fun idea. I wasn't so sure about it, but soon realized that people really liked them. So this past weekend we finally made some. The first one is the game of Tic-Tac-Toe. We thought this would be a really fun way to interact with your friends and followers! Basically you play a game of tic-tac-toe by tagging a friend to make the next move. Next they tag a different friend and at the end you've played a game with 5-9 different people!

Anyway, if you are into the Instagram template trend, just save these photos to your fun and add to your own stories to fill them out.  Also, stay tuned as we have an Instagram course coming soon!

2 Hour DIY Copper and Wood Coffee Cart

Casey has been wanting a coffee cart for as long as I can remember. Her coffee stuff has been in various places throughout the kitchen, that is, until now. We finally just broke down and made one!
We hadn't ever had room for this piece, but since we are reworking our studio we have the space now! Our next challenge will be styling the coffee cart just right for the studio. The fun thing about this cart is that it matches our Easy DIY copper and wood desks perfectly.

Things you will need:
- 3 pieces of pine plywood, cut into 12" x 36" pieces
- 24' of 1" x 2" wood, cut into
- 1-2 pieces of 10' x 1/2" copper pipe
- 8 1/2" female adapter copper pieces
- 8 1/2" male adapter copper pieces
- 4 copper elbow pieces
- 4 wheels
- copper pipe cutting tool
- drill
- 1/2" screws
- nail gun

I created a video to easily explain how I made the cart. I feel like a visual is way better than me trying to explain in words.

Here are some tips and important details for your coffee cart:
1. Make sure that before you measure and cut the copper that you put the male and female adapters on the end. You want to make to take their length into consideration.
2. Use a plumbing adhesive to secure all the copper connections.
3. We spray painted our wheels with a copper spray paint to match better. You can use whatever color wheels you'd like, we just wanted them to match the copper. Our wheels were completely metal, so the paint dried nicely and isn't sticky or chipping.

A Springtime Coffee Drink- Lavender Vanilla Latte

The other day I lost my mind and bought a 1 pound bag of lavender. I do love lavender but it doesn't weigh anything so a 1 pound bag is huge. My decision was heavily influenced by the spring weather we've been having. So get ready for lavender DIYs + recipes coming your way.

Today I'm sharing with you an easy latte recipe using lavender. I think spring needs a coffee drink and this is the one. Fall has pumpkin spice lattes and now I'm declaring lavender vanilla lattes the coffee drink of Spring. Let's make it happen!

I made this using a french press. If you don't know how to make french press coffee, check out my tutorial here. It's the best way to make coffee in my humble opinion :)
Lavender Vanilla Latter Recipe
- 3T lavender
- 4T coarsely ground coffee
- Vanilla coffee creamer (add to taste)
- 16 oz of almost boiling water

1. Put your coffee in the french press and then add the lavender on top of that.
2. Pour the water in and let it steep for 4 minutes.
3. Push the plunger down + pour coffee.
4. Add the vanilla coffee creamer.
5. Stir + enjoy.

You can still make this drink without a milk frother, but if you want to take your coffee to the next level, I highly suggest using one. The great thing about a milk frother is that it will warm your milk/creamer and froth it. For this recipe you could either froth regular milk + add a vanilla syrup OR just froth your creamer. Or if you don't want sweetener, you could just add a vanilla bean.

I'll have to admit the first time I had a lavender latte, I was a little skeptical. The flavors didn't necessarily seem like they would taste good together. But the lavender adds a freshness + floral note to the coffee that is refreshing. Please try and let me know what you think!
