Tailgate Sweet Tea Sangria

Football season is here; game day snacks and beverages abound! Whether tailgating at the stadium for a home game or hosting a crowd for a watch party, I always have a drink in hand. My beverage of choice this season is a Tailgate Sweet Tea Sangria made with Red Diamond Ready-to-Drink tea and white wine. It only takes a few minutes to make and can be made ahead of time, making it perfect for taking to game day festivities!

In the south, we take both football and sweet tea veeerry seriously. Red Diamond takes their products seriously, too. Every tea is perfectly crafted without compromise. Tea leaves are handpicked from the world's finest fields and made purely of water, tea and sugar only (or Splenda / no sweetener, depending on your tea preference). There are no powders, concentrates or preservatives to ensure that every sip is perfectly fresh and delicious.

Most Instagrammable Spots in NYC

Blogger Amanda's OK shares the Most Instagrammable Spots in NYC

There is nothing quite like the hustle, bustle and magic of New York City! I've visited the big apple six times now - at least once a year for the last five years and twice in 2018! I like to think I know my way around by now, but New York is a whole 'nother world and it never ceases to amaze me how difficult it can be to get across Manhattan whether by car, foot, or subway.

Between all of my trips, though, I've been able to visit almost all of the most instagrammable spots in NYC. It seems like every time I visit, a new Instagrammable cafe has popped up....there is always something new to see! If you're heading to Manhattan soon, here are some of my favorite photo spots that you won't want to miss...although I will say, just a random street pic in New York often turns out better than a photo almost anywhere else!

"Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world." - Marilyn Monroe

I couldn't agree more; I felt like I was on top of the world while at New York Fashion Week with my best babes last week! It was my second trip to Fashion Week and my sixth trip to NYC overall. I never tire of visiting the city that never sleeps, it is just as magical every time I go! I have visited Manhattan enough that I know my way around the city and to really perfect the art of "touristing" in NYC. In my opinion, one of the most important things to do in New York, whether visiting during Fashion Week or just for fun, is to take care of your feet! You will do a LOT of walking and your feet will take a beating! Even the comfiest of tennies can rub a blister if you aren't careful.... Add fashionable heels or booties into the mix and your toes and arches will be screaming and that can ruin a day of sight seeing real quick! With the right pair of shoes, though (and a little help from Foot Petals), anyone can conquer New York City.....or the world!

I'm rounding up all of my NYFW outfits below (even the ones that haven't made it to Instagram, yet) and sharing my secret to making any pair of shoes more comfortable to walk in.
