KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

Berry-Limeade Gimlet


Somehow I'd made it my entire adult life so far without having tasted gin. Every time my husband and I would browse the liquer at our favorite wine shops, we'd see gin and think what does that taste like anyway? I'd always had vodka martinis. Though for something easy to make at home, we weren't in the mood to gather ingredients for a gin martini.




With a quick google of "gin cocktails," you'll find various recipes for a gimlet cocktail. It's so easy, all you really need for a gimlet is lime juice and soda. And now days, you can find gimlet recipes mixed with all sorts of juices. But the original classic gimlet from the 1920s is made from gin with a splash of lime and soda.

My version is more lime juice with a splash of gin, because, well, I really can't handle much alcohol. And I'm much more interested in the flavor than getting a quick buzz. I used Simply Limeade and Rasberry La Croix sparkling water.

Simply fill an old-fashioned glass 2/3 full with the limeade, then the rest with sparkling water, and add a splash or two of the gin, and garnish with a lime wedge. It's such a refreshing way to have a gimlet for summer. And for lightweights like me, you can have a few glasses without it affecting you too much. Of course if that effect is what you're after, you can simply add a few more shots of gin. The flavor blends in very well with the lime and soda, especially if you use a sweet lime juice like the Simply Limeade.

If you prefer lighter-tasting cocktails as opposed to ones made with a whiskey or a darker liqueur, I promise you'll love this berry limeade gimlet. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

  1. I tried it once. Didn't like it, but then I don't like the taste of alcohol in general.
