Back to Reality (A.K.A. Back to the Money)Mondays are hard enough, but returning to the office on one after the holiday break is just brutal. Here's the good news though (especially if you're a freelancer like me), you can start to recoup some of the cash you spent or missed during the holidays. In honor of speaking your windfall into existence, walking your talk and the saying that shoes speak louder than words, rock this money-print Dulce Pump by Jeffrey Campbell today. Though it's classically styled, the print may make it a no-go for more conservative offices. However, it's approved for happy hour no matter where you work. The 4-inch heel means you should probably secure a bar stool early.
You know how there are all those memes of Leonardo DiCaprio holding the martini glass (whether from Gatsby or Wolf)? There's a reason for that... something about a martini says "money." It's also one of the few things strong enough to cure the Monday blues. Here's a recipe for a novel take on the classic cocktail:
FORDS 50/50 MARTINI
1½ oz Fords Gin
1½ oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
1 dash Regan’s Orange Bitters
1 lemon twist, for garnish
Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass. Add large cold ice and stir for 40 revolutions. Strain over rocks into a chilled coup glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
