After taking it easy all last weekend, I actually felt refreshed & recharged, ready for work on Monday (a welcome development in always-busy-NYC-adult-life). Alas, like clockwork, I'm ready for another weekend full of sunshine and beaches and friends and cold cocktails. Every year I'm all like "This is going to be the BEST SUMMER EVER" but something always happens to deter my plans for total awesomeness…this year, though, is going swimmingly *knock on wood* (ignoring the fact I'll be missing the Iowa State Fair for the first time ever this August). In the last month, I've watched the sun rise before bed two consecutive weekends, hit up a beach—many more to come, had drinks on rooftops, sidewalks, early in the evening til late in the night, slept in the sunshine in the park, read three books and counting, eaten more food than my waistline would like to thank me for, spent time with friends both old and new (and visiting), gotten up early to work out and slept past noon on weekends. If summer were a recipe, this one would be delicious.
And, on that note, here's some other things I'm loving, reading and bookmarking right now. Enjoy the weekend!
An update on slab wood furniture—I especially love the blue glass running through the tables.
Grace recapped her summer skincare routine. She always makes great product recommendations—I've bookmarked several already!
Digging the electric blue color of these Gentle Souls sandals.
On the hunt for the right juices in NYC so I can copy Alicia's summer popsicle recipes.
I love this recipe for Vodka Lavender Lemonade cocktails, but I'm thinking of swapping the vodka out for gin.
How cute are these "clawsome" studs from Baublebar?
