Fourth of July Watermelon Champagne Cocktail

Posted July 1, 2015 in Fourth of July, July 4th, holidays and 7 more


I've expressed my love for champagne cocktails many times here on Sweet Success, so it's probably no surprise that I concocted a summery watermelon champs cocktail for the Fourth of July.

If you haven't jumped on the champagne cocktail wagon yet, you need to ASAP! They are so easy and delicious. And an added bonus is champagne is pretty low in calories (about 90 calories per serving). When you add a splash of 100% juice, you just add a few extra calories, and you're getting the health benefits of the juice you use!

Happy Fourth of July! 

I love celebrating the summer holiday with an iced cold craft beer or a refreshing cocktail. 

So I was really excited when a representative from Samuel Adams reached out to me and asked if I would share a fun Fourth of July recipe with you. 

I'm a huge fan of craft beer, and love Sam Adams. I've never made beer cocktails or beer recipes before, so I decided to get out of my comfort zone and try something new!

When I'm planning to indulge in drinks, I make sure to get in a workout in the morning, stay hydrated all day and eat nourishing foods throughout the day. If you're planning on enjoying some drinks to celebrate the holiday, be mindful of how you feel.

Weekend Recap {Fourth of July Weekend 2016}

Posted July 5, 2016 in Weekend Recap, running, HIIT and 8 more

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! I took Friday off of work for a quick road trip with the BF, so I had an extra long holiday weekend. It was much needed!

I also started Meal Free July on Friday. I love challenges like this because it allows me to get creative in the kitchen. I made some delicious meals!

I tend to overshare in these recaps, so I tried to be more concise in this week's post! (it's so hard for me because I want to share everything!)

Fourth of July 2017 Recap

Posted July 6, 2017 in Fourth of July, smoothie, summer body love and 4 more

After having five days off work for my trip to Yosemite National Park, coming back and working three days, I had a four day weekend for the Fourth of July! 

It's been the most glorious few weeks with very little work and lots of summer fun. I could get used to this. 

The fiancé and I didn't have any plans for the holiday weekend, so we just did whatever we felt like doing in each moment. It was exactly what I needed. 

I won't bore you with all the details. I did spend a fair amount of time cleaning and organizing the house, working on my upcoming 30-Day Summer Body Love Program and watching Netflix (watching the current season of Orange is the New Black). 

Here are some highlights from my holiday weekend...
