That’s why we launched our Instagram video series #15secondstyle. (Hint: Instagram videos can only be 15 seconds long, hence the name!) First we showed you how to get from desk to drinks in 15 seconds, and now we’ll show you how to make the perfect spring cocktail. Stay tuned for future #15secondstyle videos — we’ll provide more drink recipes and fashion tips, plus beauty and style how-tos.
