VDay Cocktail Recipe

Cocktail making should be an exciting process, in fact, it’s the perfect occassion to get really creative with your garnish and glassware. Here’s a fun recipe I whipped up for my Fashionistas at last week’s VDay escapade, make sure you add it to your cocktail repertoire, it’s not only easy to make but very low in calories! ♥

Here’s what you’ll need: {Make sure you chill the Prosecco so that it’s nice and cold before serving}

- SkinnyGirl Prosecco

- 3 Raspberries

- 1 Passionfruit

- A dash of Grenadine

* mix all the ingredients together and add a dash of grenadine for colour & sweetness! Go ahead and serve the cocktail with some designer cupcakes as featured below, you can visit the eFashionista directory for a sweet designer closest to you.

Introducing Christine Hellstrom, the entrepreneuress behind Coup de Foudre, a french-inspired, lingerie boutique nestled in Richmond Hill, Ontario – we’ll be hosting our Annual Bra Snob event there on Nov.15th! Christine’s love for Parisian lingerie peaked during her month long exchange to France where she broadened her horizons of everything beautiful and everything French.

The opulence of Versailles took her breath away. Ladies love of fashion, lingerie in particular, which allowed her to experience unparalleled quality, partnered with exquisite beauty – she was smitten by the empowerment of the French woman, who believe in dressing from the inside outward!

Coup de Foudre

So why Coup de Foudre dare you ponder? She was fortunate to be part of a lucky group of 19 who were “struck by lightning” after wining the lottery while working at Bell Canada. Although she loved her management role, she left shortly after to pursue her dream of opening up a lingerie shop that would express her love for France and satisfy all her exquisite boudoir desires.

Her dreamy boutique features some of the most lavish European lingerie brands known to a Bra Snob, some of my faves include; BordelleMaison CloseSimone PereleChantelle, not to mention an extravagant hosiery line called Gerbe from Paris!

Here’s an inside look at Christine’s boudoir platform..
