giveaway: eats, shoots and roots

I am so in awe of the people behind Eats, Shoots and Roots. I've always known of them. I follow the company on Instagram: @eatsshootsandroots and have always thought of dropping by the garden. I am so in awe of their concept to educate people about urban farming / agriculture so they can be empowered to be self-sustainable. Aargh how fantastic is that??

fig, vanilla bean and cardamom infused vodka

I stumbled upon Tasty Yummies infused vodka recipe while searching on Pinterest for ideas to put my spare cardamom pods to good use and have always kept it on the back burner (aka an open safari window on the iPhone) until today.

I'm sure you share my thrill :) Continue after the jump...

I've always been very curious about smokey-eyes but have always been abysmal at it. To compensate my #fail ability to smudge, I create drama with an eyeline-ah! I like to use Alexa Chung Lash Enhancing Eye Do Eyeliner by Eyeko. The precision tip pleases me and it stays put even through sad Youtube shorts (films)

a sip of mint julep... in winter

My sister was lamenting about how vicious the Austrian winter has been to her skin and showed me her scaly shins with terrible scratch marks. Having seen that I could imagine the nippings Jack Frost must have made to her nails. I immediately got set to making her some Christmas Lotion Pops and Cuticle Kiss. As I waited for the balms to set, I peered down to my toes and was alarmed by how autumn my nails looked! Time to frost it up with some tips from Julep:
