The Blue Lagoon

This drink, recently named The Blue Lagoon, is a creation for when I’m feeling “something pineappley.” It’s got a sweet paradise feel and helps me pretend I’m relaxing on a tropical island even when it’s 50 degrees out and raining. 


Easy to make and even easier to drink. Grab a glass, fill it with ice, and add the following ingredients:

1.5 ounces Cruzan Strawberry Rum
1.5 ounces Cruzan Banana Run
1.5 ounces Cruzan Coconut Rum
1.5 ounces Blue Curaรงao
Fill to top of glass with pineapple juice
Shake, serve, and enjoy!

An Apology to my Neglected Blog

It should come as no surprise that I’veย neglected this blog since my last post, which wasย almost three months ago. Every time I’ve ever decided to try and blog, this always happens. I start out extremely motivated and into the idea but then nothing ever comes of it. Or I get a tiny bit or inspiration but by the time it comes to actually write a post, that inspiration has disappeared.

How do you deal with writer’s block, or in this case blogger’s block? When you’re struggling to come up with a post or a topic worth exploring, how do you work through it?

I love the idea of a blog but have yet to master the art of blogging. So here’s my apology to my neglected blog: I’m sorry you’re not getting the attention you deserve. I promise to try harder.

January Favorites

One type of post (or video, for those that YouTube) that I always see is a recap of someone’s favorite things for the month. I find it interesting to see who’s using what and what made it to the top of their list for that month.

I figured with it being the 31st already, why not create a list of some things that made my month? It serves as a fun and easy first official blog post.

Kristin Does Blogging: 2k16 Edition

So. Blogging. Every once in a while I get the strongest urge to start a blog but it doesn’t take long for that inspiration to die out. But here we are, typing out this first blog post on a wordpress site that I’ve had for years but have shown no love to.

I actually like writing. I don’t consider myself to be a good writer but I like what comes with it. I think it’s a great way to get your thoughts out. It’s also a great way to be able to read those thoughts and (try to) make some sense of them.

I can’t really say what types of posts I’m going to write, or how many will end up being on here, but it’ll be something.

We’ll see how it goes.
