Everything Watermelon!

28 Jun

I have been absolutely adoring watermelon…the fruit and the color!!  

It’s almost 4th of July week and when I think of summer treats, watermelon comes to my mind.  It’s such a perfect summer color, a pinkish red with a touch of bright orange~is summer’s sweetest shade!

For a melon mouth, look for a shiny color with a punchy hue.  My favorite is MAC Lustreglass in Love Nectar  for my medium skin tone.  Choose a gloss that’s a shade lighter than your outfit, you don’t want to overdo it.


A crash course in color inspiration:

Pair a solid separate with a graphic print or combine with a neutral for an engaging ensemble.

Shades of  watermelon pair well with…
A laid back neutral like white and khaki or try a pop of bright with tangerine or a super-saturated blue.

AND

For the way out there… “look at me” statement:

Eat, drink and be merry:

Juicy Fruit!  Watermelon contains 92 percent water that makes it a cinch to convert into a “can’t miss” cocktail…try one of these:

  • Puree several chunks and mix with prosecco for a Bellini-style beverage
  • Serve the puree over ice with vodka, tequila, or rum and a splash of lime juice.   

These watermelon cupcake are so perfect for summer!  So easy to make!

  1. Adding approx. 8 – 10 drops of red food coloring to your favorite white or vanilla cupcake batter.
  2. Add 1/4 c miniature chocolate chips.
  3. Bake as directed.
  4. Frost with green frosting.

Way cute!  I’m always amazed at what fun things people do with cupcakes.

What do you think about watermelon?

However you choose to enjoy watermelon, the fruit or the color…have a wonderful 4th of July!!!!

Laugh Loudly…KISSES!
