To me, Memorial Day weekend kicks off the beginning of the laid-back days of summer…and I honestly couldn’t be more ready to welcome them with open arms. This weekend I’m powering down my laptop and leaving my phone on its charger in exchange for pool parties, feasts on the grill and uninterrupted time hanging out with family and friends. Speaking of friends, I’ve got to take a minute to brag on one of my best ones: Chanel, who you guys all know as our fearless assistant editor and writer of many, many posts here on the blog, also happens to be a wonderfully talented songstress. Her first (way-too-catchy) single is currently all over the airwaves, and the incredibly fun video just went live. Check it out and tell all your friends…and Chanel, you can stop blushing now. Hope you all have a lovely holiday weekend, and enjoy my favorite links from the past week!

Swimsuit season is upon us, and I’m craving healthy-and-delicious like this superfood salad.

Chic on the cheap… you can’t go wrong with an orange and pink color palette, in my book.

A few bunches of kale = 5 great dinners.

Who else is craving all things strawberry right now?

These lovelies have been on my wishlist for awhile, and I’m finally pulling the trigger this weekend.

    What an amazingly catchy and fun song! Feeling like it’s gonna blow up and be the “Call me maybe” of this summer! Congrats and way to rock the short shorts sista.

      Thank you Celine! We’ve got some big shoes to fill, but glad the song brought “Call Me Maybe” to mind! Definitely the fun party vibe I was going for 🙂

    What brand is that glass bottle with the blue liquid inside? It is the glass jar on the right with the gingham fabric on the lid 🙂
