Cranberry-Apple Mint Julep + Copper Mugs “Thanksgiveaway”!

Happy Thursday day, beautiful people! I have some FUN & exciting things for you today!!

ONE: A really awesome drink recipe for your Thanksgiving holiday &

*Disclaimer: I have been given this product in exchange for a product review. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. 

As you know, I’m a huge fan of these copper mugs. I think they’re chic, classy, and so fun to use and photograph! They’re just really awesome! So in celebration of the upcoming holiday this month, I’m partnering with Copper Mugs Co. to give TWO pairs of these sweet Julep cups to ONE lucky winner! And in light of what this holiday is really about, giving and being thankful, you’ll be able to give away ONE pair to a friend you’re grateful for! We’re calling it the Copper Mugs Co. THANKSGIVEAWAY! (how cute is that, though?) Read on to learn how you can enter to  win!

So this drink was actually pretty simple to make. The basics of a julep are bourbon and mint so we built on that for the fall and use Cran-Apple juice at our mixer instead of water!


Cran-Apple Juice
Fresh Mint
Cranberries, Mint, & Apple for Garnish


Put a little sugar & 2 leaves of mint at the bottom of your cup and muddle the two together.
Add one shot (or whatever you want) of Bourbon
Fill glass with Cran-Apple Juice
Use crushed ice (or whatever ice you want. We used one large ice cube.)


Interested in winning a set of Copper Mugs Co. Julep cups?? Just follow XOXOKLEE AND COPPERMUGCO on INSTAGRAM & tag a friend you’re thankful for on ^this Instagram photo!! More tags = more entries!

This giveaway will be going until Sunday Nov. 13th & the winner will be announced on Monday Nov. 14th! The winner will choose a friend they are thankful for, and that person will ALSO receive a pair of Copper Mugs Co. Julep cups! Sounds awesome,  right?

  • Thanking the heavens for @otbtshoes and their chunky cute wedges. 😜 I didn’t think I could love them more and then they unveiled their “Layover” wedges! I’m so stoked to wear these like.. all spring and summer. 👏🏼

  • Shaking up my routine with Herbal Essences Blue Ginger & Micellar Water Shampoo and Ginger Conditioner. I’ve been way into bath/skin/hair care recently. Spending all my $$ on loofas and soaps. @herbalessences came in for the save with this one 😂 but also these smell great and make my hair feel amazeballs.

  • I didn’t have a head cold in this picture. It was a much happier time. 
Happy Sunday, friends. 🤧
  • Super stoked for the weather to not be garbage. 🌊
  • Quote of the day: “Be alone. Eat alone. Take yourself on dates. Sleep alone. In the midst of this, you will learn about yourself. You will grow. You will figure out what inspires you. You will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you meet the person that makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you will be sure of yourself.”
  • Been sleeping all day in anticipation for super bowl food
  • Today I’m grateful for the things about me that I always considered to be my “bad” qualities. 
I think “bad” qualities are something we all possess, but I also think they’re useful in the sense that they do a job to weed the people out of our lives that aren’t beneficial to our end game- whatever that may be. 
So I’m listing my “bad” qualities this morning and I’m going to repurpose them. What good have they brought me? 
Some of the good I’ve come up with include: clarity, new surroundings, a chance to do what i need for myself, a new appreciation for life, love for myself that I didn’t realize I had, and so many more. 
If you’re feeling especially down about yourself, I challenge you to make a list of the things you don’t love and repurpose them. Think about what kind of good came out of your bad qualities and embrace that. 
I fully believe we are who we are for a reason and we should probably stop trying to be what we think people want us to be, and we should just.. be. Good, bad, and everything in between. You’ll be surprised who and what you attract.

ive been doing great with these captions, huh? 
i had 2 job interviews today & I’m going to reward myself with fried pickles. 🍽
  • Somethin about being sweet and wearing a crown. idk. I’m an asshole.
  • Life can get confusing. 
Intentions can get lost. 
Goals can change. 
It’s just what happens. But I’m going to try my damndest to channel the inner freebird inside me and learn to roll with these changes instead of trying to control them. 
We’re not in control of what happens. We’re only in control of our reactions and the choices we make.
