The First Pitch: Who Threw it Worse?

The First Pitch: Who Threw it Worse?

Batter up! We heart baseball season around Julep HQ, and in the past few days we've been….wowed?…by a couple of ceremonial first pitches. Tara the Hero Cat was on the mound for a Bakersfield Blaze game, and Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent) threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Mets vs. Pirates this week. Both "pitches" were a little bit (a lot)… sad trombone.   But, whose was worse? We have a mighty difference of opinion happening here, and we're hoping to declare a winner (or a loser,... Read More

7 Tips: How to Throw an Easy & Awesome Summer BBQ

It's Friday, so of course the weather gods decided to schedule a torrential downpour here in Seattle to really start our long weekend on the right note. But I'm already looking ahead to Monday (and praying for sunshine), when my boyfriend and I will be hosting our very first summer BBQ in honor of Memorial Day! Everyone is a different type of party host. My weakness is that I get so excited by all the options for recipes, drinks, and décor that I end up taking on too much and burning myself out...

What’s the Beauty Buzz for Bees all About?

What’s the Beauty Buzz for Bees all About?

We've heard about bee pollen making you a superhero version of yourself. But what if someone told you that bee venom is "nature's Botox"? You'd probably be at least a little bit interested in finding out WTH, right? Lady Beckham found out, and…Voila.   Kate Middleton famously fell for it just before her royal wedding. Kylie Minogue can't get it out of her head. And Gwyneth goops it on so it's easy to believe that it's a bona fide beauty secret (and super expensive). Now, with luxurious bee-based... Read More

Throwback Thursday: Donna Summer, Glam Disco Queen

Happy Throwback Thursday! We feel like dancing today, so let's all put on "Love to Love You Baby" and celebrate the unequivocal Queen of Disco and fabulous fashion icon, Donna Summer. Her title as the "Queen of Disco" wasn't just hype---in her heyday, no other artist (except maybe the Bee Gees) could touch Donna Summer. And no one, Bee Gees included, was nearly as glamorous. This shot from 1976 proves why club-goers and record-buyers were smitten with Summer: not only did she have a gorgeous, provocative... Read More

Throwback Thursday: Mother’s Day Edition with Lucille Ball

With Mother's Day coming up on Sunday, we thought today's edition of #throwbackthursday was the perfect place to share this darling vintage photo of Lucille Ball and her daughter Lucie, from way back in 1952: A true icon for her contributions to the realms of comedy and television---and a timeless role model for funny ladies and redheads everywhere---Lucille Ball was also a doting mother to her two children, Lucie Jr. and Dezi Jr., not to mention a killer dresser and makeup maven. To an extent, Lucy's... Read More

Celebrate Mother’s Day with a #ManiForMom

There are never too many ways to show Mom you care. So this Mother's Day, why not say "I love you" ... with your nails?

The women who carried us, birthed us, fed us, changed us, kissed us, hugged us, soothed us, read to us, sacrificed for us, opened doors for us, encouraged us, provided for us, and---through it...
