Happy Weekend + Links!



Happy Friday!  As we’re winding down another whirlwind busy week, who’s ready for the weekend?  (both hands raised here)  Depending on weather, I hope to make it down to Santa Cruz tomorrow for a day trip / quick getaway.  Only a few precious summer weekends left…how are you spending it?  Have a great day and weekend everyone!

Some fun reads and links for your weekend perusal:

1. How are we already mid-way through August?  Celebrate the last few weeks of “official” summer with this colorful dish.

2. Make a summer get-together even more festive with this champagne-inspired dinner party.

3. Great hair and great jeans?  Sign me up!  Make sure to stop by your nearest Madewell and Drybar in the next few weeks to take advantage of this partnership offer.

4. Gal Meets Glam does floral dresses the right way here…gorgeous!

5. After wearing my wedge sneakers running errands this past month, I absolutely love them!  So comfortable, yet stylish.  Good news is Shopbop is having a sale and wedge sneakers are on the list!

For Love and Lemons


Haven’t posted about food and entertaining lately, so this post is dedicated to a lovely new site I stumbled upon. The site is Love and Lemons.  As you can see, Jeanine Donofrio and her husband Jack, take some beautiful pictures of the food they make (mostly vegetarian and some gluten-free) that make your taste buds salivate.  Although I am generally a lover of all foods and eat everything (meat, seafood, you name it)…this site hits the spot for those days when you want a clean, colorful salad, a warm comforting soup, or a delicious, feel-good sandwich.  Gotta get in those daily veggies, right?  I’ll definitely be subscribing to this blog and trying some of the recipes.  Hm, is it time for lunch yet?  Check out the site and you can also follow their twitter at @lovelemonsfood. Enjoy!
