When Adeline Waugh introduced colourful beauties like unicorn lattes and mermaid toasts to our world, we knew we were going to be instantly glued to her Instagram feed, and glued we were! Apart from wowing us with her colour-burst pictures, the food stylist curates high on health recipes and styles them in ways that are beyond our profundity.  Meanwhile, she also introduces newer creations which look and resound to the mystical and whimsical world.

A visual treat to the eyes, Adeline Waugh’s work is a vibrant medley of colours and has only inspired us to fall in love with it. But not ones to stop at only that, this time we decided to match our jewellery to some super cool looking drinks. How do we do that though? Well, we don’t want to boast but we are regulars at that 😀

Not that we are not celebrating always, but 8th March is International Women’s Day, which gives us another chance to celebrate. We here are always looking for more reasons to do that with much pomp and fervour! Women’s Day is not only about acknowledging yourself but also about honouring those women in your life who have been rock solid and like a wall. So what do we usually do on this day?  Some of us resort to shopping or go for brunches with our besties, or just enjoy some quiet lone time reading a book or at a spa.

But, this time around since we at Pipa Bella are all about cocktails we thought that chugging down a few extra ones on this day won’t do any harm. Or maybe we just like to believe that! 😀

So here’s a list of 5 cocktails that the girls can drink while they catch up with their besties and the guys can make for their lady loves 🙂
