Fashionably Bombed.



Fashionably Bombed. This is what I’ve decided that I’m now calling my weekend nights after too much wine, thanks to my new favorite find.

Fashionably Bombed is a blog co-written by adorable sisters Flannery (love the name) and Katherine Good. Yes, their last name is good! How perfect! One is a fashion expert and the other is a former NYC bartender. Talk about the perfect pair!



Not only do they make unique, fun cocktails, but the create some of the most entertaining, chic photo shoots. This blog is just bursting with inspiration! And seriously, how can’t you fall in love with girls that garnish cocktails with a Hostess Snowball cupcake!?

Here are some awesome drink recipes from the Fahsionably Bombed site.
