There’s something about a holiday that makes me want to eat! Seriously, it doesn’t matter the actual holiday, just give me food + something to drink and I’m happy. That’s possibly the reason that I often find myself sharing recipes around the holidays. For this Valentine’s Day (tomorrow yay!) is no exception. Get inspired by these 10 dessert and drink recipes to share with your valentine or even your galentine!!

For Valentine’s Day this year I’m all about sparkly nail art. The more sparkle the better! I’m also still loving that rose gold nail polish trend from last year. It seems so fitting for a romantic holiday like Valentine’s Day. Take a peek and grab some inspiration:
a little glitz and glam goes a long way!
I love the idea of just one sparkling heart
If you want to skip the glitter but not the sparkle, add some of these metallic dots!
tiny hearts are still sweet
If you’re keeping it simple, just a pretty shade of pink does the trick!

30 large fresh mint leaves
4 thick slices fresh watermelon, seeds and rind removed
10 ounces light rum, such as Bacardi
1/2 cup simple syrup
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (3 limes)
Sprigs of mint and spears of watermelon, for serving
Use a mortar and pestle to mash the mint leaves you can add a little sugar to help break up the leaves and get the oils from the mint extracted.
Remove and discard the rind and seeds of the watermelon. Place the watermelon, rum, simple syrup and lime juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Stir to get the froth to go down.
Put the mashed mint into a large pitcher and add in the watermelon mixture. Stir to combine the mint with the juice.
