Go Ask Kara

During the winter season Georgetown manager Kara Perry loves to mix colors and prints in her wardrobe. “I choose colors that complement each other and designs that coordinate, not clash.” During summer months she tones down her print and color mixing due to her wonderful array of tattoos.  “Too many colors and prints plus my tattoos overwhelm the eye! I think my tattoos are a fashion statement in their own right.”

Buffalo Exchange Blog (6)Kara has been with Buffalo for 7 years. Originally working at our Long Beach store, then moving over to our Philly location and now the store manager of our newest Georgetown location. She finds inspiration from the city and the people of Georgetown, “The people are inspiring and motivating. The history of the city and its buildings are breathtaking. “

The Morning After

It’s the day after Christmas and your stomach is still full and your head is beginning to pound. You slowly remember all that turkey, ham or roast along with the bottle after bottle of wine, beer and whatever else was your drink of choice. Before you reach for those Tums and Aspirin we have we have some drinks and tips to help your hangover.

Everyone knows that the second you wake up after a night of drinking, you’re parched. So you reach for a bottle of water, but a glass of juice or Gatorade will help to recharge your electrolytes faster. Even some milk will coat the stomach and help ease the pain.  For those who are a little more adventurous but want to try something new instead of the tried-and-true Bloody Mary or Mimosa. I have your answers, three of some of the best hang over cures tested by yours truly; Angostura Highball, Eye Opener, and the Ich Bin. For those who like to live dangerously, but without the liquid courage, I’ve also included a Virgin Mary recipe to add some spice to your morning tomato juice.

Fashion Apocalypse

Since the world may end today, it’s time to admit our fashion faults. We all have those moments where we look back at old photos and make an “Oh dear…” face in astonishment at our stylish selves. We pat ourselves on the back with congratulations to the clothing we now own, only to have that “Oh dear… ” face later down the road at today’s outfit. So while we’re living in the moment, let pay homage to our past fashion apocalypse.

Buffalo Exchange Washington DC manager Kara, takes us into her past with her top fashion apocalypses

Chocolate Mint Cookies

Buffalo Exchange Blog

Ingredients:

  • 18 Round Crackers (Ritz are best)
  • 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Shortening
  • ¾ Teaspoon Peppermint Extract*
  1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or wax paper. Clear out a spot in your refrigerator or freezer to accommodate baking sheet.
  2. In a shallow microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and shortening (the shortening helps the chocolate stay smooth for dipping). Heat for 1 minute on high power to melt and then stir and heat in 10 to 15 second bursts until chocolate can be stirred very smooth.
  3. Add 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract* and stir. If you prefer it mintier, add another 1/4 teaspoon.
  4. Add 1 cracker to the chocolate, coat it, and remove it by lightly scooping it up from underneath with a fork, allowing excess chocolate to drain off. Place cracker on parchment and repeat with all remaining crackers. After all crackers have been dipped, place baking sheet in refrigerator or freezer. Store cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
