Women's March

You guys make it easy for me to show you how awesome I feel about yesterday. I was at the Women's March in Washington, D.C., and it was fantastic. And I'm so excited to say that we've raised over 6K for Planned Parenthood with our gear. And the free signage and pins we produced with Brooklyn Mamas was icing on the cake. 

Who rules the world? That's right.

Still want gear? Get it!

WOMEN'S MARCH PINS

I'm getting prepped for the Women's March in DC this weekend, and in preparation, I've collaborated with the awesome Brooklyn Mamas to create these "I dissent." pins! Inspired by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, they speak to how we're feeling about the direction politics are heading.

We'll be distributing them in Brooklyn this week (get in touch if you want to pick up) and at the march, but if you'd like to get your hands on one and you're further away, feel free to grab the files below. They're for 1" pins.

And don't forget to take a pic of you wearing it! We'd love to see who's marching with us! Hashtag your images! #idissent #wedissent #whyimarch and tag @loveandvictory and @brooklynmamas!! 

Women & Whiskies Cocktail Party Recipes

Tonight, we're co-hosting Women & Whiskies second NYC event, a summer cocktail party in the lovely garden at Tuffet. We've been planning, designing, and plucking edible flowers for cocktails and can't wait to party with over 50 whiskey loving women in Brooklyn.

Our friend Natalie Jacob — a bartender with a serious knack for the beautiful — came up with a menu of summery whiskey cocktails featuring Glen Grant Scotch, Wild Turkey Bourbon, and Forty Creek Whisky that I'm so excited to share.

We got together at the Love & Victory studio this week, gave the cocktails a test run and took some photos.

Here are the recipes if you'd like to give them a whirl for yourself!
