Happy Hour: A Mocktail for Summer/Fall

Sep 24, 2021

We restart IVF treatments next month, so I’m doing dry October.  And I was feeling like a mocktail that could bridge the gap between summer and fall.  No cider.  No cinnamon.  Something that let me have a little bit of summer in my September.

This Cranberry-Coconut Lime Rickey is a nice option.  The cranberry juice gives you a hint of fall, while the coconut and lime keep you firmly in summer vibes.  The recipe calls for club soda to make it fizz.  I think the Fever Tree club soda gives you the best fix for your buck.

Speaking of summer-fall transitions: I’m not sure where my fall wardrobe is headed yet.  Will I be all WFH?  Will I be in office?  Will I be in Montana more, or Washington more?  So I just wanted a couple of staple pieces to carry me over the threshold until I figure out what I need.

LOFT is having an amazing sale right now — 50% off and free shipping with code CYBER.  I picked up a rust-colored dress that can be dressed up or worn with a chunky cardigan and slippers.  This v-neck pocket cardigan comes in an amazing selection of colors and is perfect for home or work.  As for outerwear, this double breasted coat in a soft neutral is to die for.

Have a great weekend!

    From a mom of 3 IVF kiddos (twins +1), I wish you all the luck and grace you need on this journey.

    Thank you for holding out on fall flavors! I’m in Northern Virginia and the humidity earlier this week was not doing anything to induce cozy vibes. My personal rule is apples are fine in September but pumpkin, Halloween, etc., has to wait until October 1.

    Sending best thoughts for next month!

    If you find yourself missing the way a cocktail drinks vs a mocktail, Seedlip is actually a really great non-alcoholic spirit. Even just a splash of it goes a long way to giving a mocktail a bit more complexity and depth.

    I’ve also really enjoyed Tost, a tea-based sparkling “wine alternative.” Tastes more complex and feels more special than Martinelli’s.

    Having gone through multiple rounds of IVF, I found long hikes to be therapeutic. Try to stay off of the internet and message boards. Get quality sleep. Treat yourself to something nice now and then. Sending you love.

    Came by to second seedlip, and also gruvi and curious elixers. Curious Elixers has one flavor with ashwagandh, but the rest are pregnancy/TTC/IVF safe, I think.

What I’m Really Buying on Prime Day

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
