6TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS OF POSH KC

                     
The past year has been crazy, to say the least. So to be taking baby steps, and doing things which remind you of the good old times, is a great idea. When I got the invite to celebrate 6 years of Posh KC, I  knew I had to be there. For those of you who don't know, Posh KC is a local blow dry bar in downtown Kansas City. We had been pampered by Posh KC last year, in a mommy-daughter date. So it made perfect sense to celebrate Posh KC with my mini-me. The only bit I was confused about was what to wear. It was cold and grey and I had a full workday before that. To make matters worse, I had dropped a bottle of foundation, over the dress I had planned to wear. Settled for my old favorite - dark wash skinny jeans, a dressier neutral top, leopard pumps, and statement earrings. I have linked what all of us are wearing, at the end of this blog post. My top is sold out, but I have linked similar items. 



The anniversary celebrations were held at Mean Mule Distilling Co. at the Crossroads Art District, in KC. We hadn't visited this popular distillery and tasting room, so we were very excited. Mean Mule Distilling Co. is known for their American Agave Spirit, which isn't Tequila, I am told. I opted for a Palom, while hubby opted for a Margarita. The space itself is beautiful and loved the little corners, where the natural light created the beautiful play with shadows. Had to capture a few frames with the golden hour streaming in. 




If there's Posh KC, you know there will be a braid bar. And who doesn't love a pampering session? I opted for a Dutch braid, as I cannot do fancy braids. My Mini-Me opted for Bubble Braids at Mommy's insistence. How pretty did both turn out? It is very rare that you will see me with my hair tied, at an event. The compliments I received after my braid was done, have me thinking of braids for the next event as well. Love meeting the Posh KC team again. If you haven't yet been to Posh KC, might I suggest booking yourself a Signature Blow-Out! You will love the quality of service and the super-friendly staff. 



Speaking of treats, did I mention the cookies of Midwest Cookie Co, specially created for the celebrations. Posh KC really knows how to ensure that they throw a family-friendly event- the parents had free-flowing agave spirits and the kiddos had artisan cookies! Win-Win! 


When I slowed down my blogging and social media posting when my husband was fighting cancer, I missed out on a lot of events and meet-ups. Then 2020 came with covid, and there were hardly any events. So when I finally got a chance to meet up with some of my favorite creatives from KC, it was indeed a double bonus. Thank you team KES studio for the invite. It was so good to meet you again Kat and Leah, it's been long. Finally met up with a fellow blogger- Brianna, whom I had only met across Instagram. She is so sweet and we chatted about all things fashion, blogging and travel. 

It's always wonderful when you get to let your hair down and party. Parties definitely look different now but am glad that we are at least trying to take baby steps.  Thank you Posh KC and KES Studio for ensuring we had such a fun evening.

VINE COOLERS FROM KC WINE CO

 





Mother's Day is less than a week away, and this mama needs wine! Not just any wine, but Vine Coolers from KC Wine Co. Throw in a backyard picnic with it and this mama is happy. Vine Coolers are individual wine slushies that are perfect for any occasion, and clearly a warm-weather favorite. 

Vine Coolers are locally made wine slushes, which are available in a variety of flavors, including Sangria, Peach Bellini, Lemoncello, and Winearita. Made from all-natural ingredients, the Vine Coolers have no artificial flavors or colors. In our backyard picnic, we decided to try the flavors, in the hope of picking a favorite. White Sangria is a crowd favorite for sure, with its Mediterranean twist, the hint of Prosecco in Peach Bellini also vies for the top spot. Loved the packaging of the Vine Coolers with their easy tear tab. You can freeze the small sleek tube, and serve. In my terms, this is the best adult popsicle I have seen. 

KC Wine Co. is currently offering contactless curbside pickup if you are interested. Vine Coolers are also sold across grocery stores in Kansas and Missouri! Last but not the least, to help you cheer for the Royals this SUmmer, Vine Coolers shall also be available at the K! 

I try my best to support local small businesses as much as I can. Being a resident of Olathe, it made perfect sense to support my neighborhood winery - KC Wine Co. A family-owned winery and vineyard, which handcrafts 12 varieties of wine, 5 varieties of hard cider, and wine slushes, and Vine Coolers. KC Wine Co. is well known for its tasting room, and also its seasonal events, like the KC Pumpkin patch, in Fall. 

Cheers to an amazing Summer, with some great spirits! Backyard picnic with Vine Coolers, from KC Wine Co. might be a regular feature in our Summer Calendar!
