Perfect Skin? We got the answers!

Les Petites, it's all about a good FACE and 

with  that in mind one must always prep the 

face  before leaving the house. And let's not 

forget  in the summer there's no layers of clothes to 

hid under so be bold and beautiful starting 

with your gorgeous face of yours! 

Here are 3 products that are a must this season.

All Hands On Drinks!

This post is sponsored by Anheuser Busch.

Les petites, isn’t life grand? The days are endless, the nights are epic and with all this good weather it seems only right that we celebrate the season! How should we commemorate our summer - well it’s only befitting to throw an all-encompassing Rita Hour! What’s a Rita Hour you ask? Think Happy Hour encased in merriment and high spirits thanks to interesting people, good food, and Bud Light Lime Ritas®. Why Bud Light Lime Ritas®? Why ask why, les petites?!  These flavorful drinks are a bang (shebang to be exact) for your buck, a fan favorite and evokes the feeling of a good frolic with people who speak your same language. Here les petites we give you the ultimate recipe on how to be a preeminent host and throw a legendary Rita Hour any day of the week!  Yes, it’s really that easy…

Recipe for a Legendary Rita Hour®!

Bud Light Lime Ritas® from Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita, Bud Light Lime Raz-Ber-Rita, Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita, Bud Light Lime Lemon-Ade-Rita and our all time favorite Bud Light Lime Mang-O-Rita
2 Cups of Friendship (no imitation dames & gents, only the real stuff!) 
A dash of tasty treats both sweet and savory 
1 part good music and a dollop of happy thoughts 

Place all the ingredients in a safe invigorating space over air conditioning (les petites it’s called Rita Hour not sauna hour!)

Bring the Rita Hour to boil by offering an assortment of delish treats, chilled libations and a good music playlist remember to keep all hands with drinks!

Now that the Rita Hour is in full swing, glaze the event over with snapshots of the event and have all your guests use a custom hashtag to memorialize the Rita Hour®. Voila! You have the recipe for a legendary soirée that will not be forgotten.

For me summer is  approximately one hundred days of pure bliss, not only is it my birthday season (Go Shorty it’s ya Birthday!) It’s a time to be a bit carefree, to enjoy one’s surroundings with good people and relish in the delight of the warmest season of the year. It’s the perfect instant to just stop,revel  and enjoy an impromptu bash responsibly with people you fancy. With good weather comes good times and now you all have the perfect recipe for an outstanding Rita Hour. 

The Bud Light Lime Ritas are so delicious that wherever they go a party spontaneously happens.

Les Petites, it's one hot summer! There hasn't been a moment when all I want to do is unwind with an iced cocktail and just relax but like many of you I am working hard day and night!  When it I need to unwind and take care of myself a nice shower is on the menu and I look no further then Adovia Dead Sea Salt
