I have always been more of an ice cream person than a popsicle person, but I've just hopped onto the popsicle bandwagon. I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with 80 Pops, whose delish creamy and fruity frozen confections have changed my mind. I found out about 80 Pops through the talented photographer I worked with on this shoot, Megan Forehand, who captured these stunning shots. The shoot was an absolute blast. I met with 80 Pops founder and CEO, Brian Robinson, who filled me in on his popsicle enterprise and let me sample a handful of fun flavors. He kindly gave me a tour of his restoration shop, where he keeps the 80 Pops vehicles, all old trucks and vans he restores, and uses to transport and sell popsicles across Birmingham.
Before meeting Brian, I scanned the robust menu of options on the 80 Pops website. Of all 80 flavors, there was one in particular that piqued my interest: Sweet Corn. Sooo good! It somehow tastes Southern. (Coconut lovers, you will like the texture of this pop). Every popsicle is made of all natural ingredients. Brian consulted award winning chef Chris Hastings of Hot and Hot Fish Club to create recipes for the pops. I also tried Sweet Tea, Mango Habanero Cheesecake, Raspberry Basil, and Peanut Butter -- all fabulous. The pops are $3 a piece. You must give them a try if you live in Birmingham! Absolutely amazing.
As for my outfit.. I'm dripping in some of my favorite Geoffrey Scott pieces. The necklace is my absolute fave. It is a piece that he custom designed for me. So very special! : ) I love the tribal vibe. It's a unique look that I think is really hot. On my right wrist, I'm wearing my Geoffrey Scott Tulum beaded stretch bracelets, and on my left wrist, I have on his Bora Bora design with freshwater pearls. I love the earthy vibe of the jewelry paired with my fave pair of olive Coach heels. The nail art is from Sunset 45.
