4th of July is tomorrow! That means BRING ON the pool parties, beach waves, flip fops, watermelon, short-shorts, & of course your American pride. Still trying to figure out what to do tomorrow, what recipe you should bring to the party, or even what to wear? No worries, we have packed it all into our Sienna Ray “gossip blog” to help inspire and get your party hats on! Now go in your closet and pull out the red, white and blue…it is going to be an AH-mazing week/weekend!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
The essentials: jean shorts, chuck taylors, wedges, stripes, and polka dots & pump!
To all of my fellow dress divas- go bold! Pull pieces out of your existing wardrobe (red white or blue) and spice up with a belt and some jewelry…nautical works too!
Now that your outfit is ready, what about your nails? Go for a USA pattern! If you don’t have the time, remember you can stop at your local drug store and pick up some patriotic nail stickers! A manicure in 5 minutes.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE PARTY?
revolutionary berries! (supper easy to make)
Melt 12 ounces of white chocolate chips in a microwave according to the package directions (make sure the container and the berries are dry; even a little moisture will alter the texture of the candy).
One at a time, dip strawberries into the chocolate and then into blue sugar or edible glitter.
Set them to harden on waxed paper.
Makes 35 to 45 decorated berries.
nations b-day nachos!
Place blue corn tortilla chips on a foil-covered baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Sprinkle the chips with shredded Monterey Jack, then bake at 350° for 5 to 7 minutes.
Top the nachos with salsa and sour cream.
who doesn’t like JELLO SHOTS?
Cut an Orange (or lemon or lime) in HALF and gut it.
Mix the jello shot (1 cup hot water, box jello, 1 cup various liquors)
Stir till disolved
Add the jello mix to the half shell and refrig for 3 hours or more.
Once solid, slice and serve! emomum
WHAT DO TO?! (FOR ALL MY LAST MINUTE LADIES)
Macy’s will have fireworks being released from four barges in the Hudson River. It’s the 36th Annual Macy’s Fireworks display and this year’s theme is Ignite the Night. This year’s fireworks soundtrack has been dubbed “America’s Mixtape,” and will feature both patriotic and pop songs that will be performed in sync with the fireworks. The music can be heard on 1010 WINS and Fresh 102.7. The night’s line-up will include performances by Katy Perry and Kenny Chesney. If you’re not in the area, NBC will broadcast the fireworks live beginning at 9 p.m. EST. The best places to see the fireworks will be along the West Side Highway on the north-bound lanes and 12th Avenue between 14th and 59th Streets; some side streets between 11th and 12th Avenues and at Pier 84 (access from 44th Street).
