Hi, I’d like to report a missing person. His name is July.
I know I say this every year, but HOW did it get to be August already?! I feel like I’m still sitting around waiting for the 4th of July to arrive.
I’m excited to bring you a new series of monthly edits going forward… products & places & other fun things I have on my mind that month. Dare YOU to try all of these things before September creeps up on ya.
Rhode Island :: We were in Warren, Bristol, and Little Compton this past weekend, and I’ve realized I have a real sweet spot for this state. I’d love to get back down to Newport before summer’s end, but also have my mind on Jamestown + Block Island now… | *image via
Pinkberry :: I love good old fashioned summer ice cream cones as much as the next person, but there’s something to be said for how much better I feel after topping my froyo with a pound of fresh fruit… no matter how much extra weight [read: $$] it adds 😛
Romper Season :: I’m so ready to soak up the last few weeks of this season. And TBH, probably the last couple summers I’ll be able to get away with these pieces in general… #old. Lilly has put out the cutest styles this summer (so comfy too!), and I’m making my wish list for when their annual End of Summer Sale hits in a couple weeks…! | *pictured above
Yoga on the Green :: I thought this was one of those too-good-to-be-true deals until I tried it. Every Sunday morning this summer, lululemon at The Street in Chestnut Hill hosts free yoga classes outside. I can count the number of yoga classes I’ve been to in my life on one hand, but I attended this one Sunday with many more experienced yogis, and we definitely all got a challenge out of it.
Prickly Pear Margaritas :: I’ve never been a big tequila drinker (thanks, college), but I cannot get enough of these this summer. I’m not letting August go by without attempting to make my own with some of this syrup— I’ll be starting with Vianney and Mackenzie‘s recipes.
Fresh Beauty :: As you’ve probably gathered from the lack of a Beauty section on this blog, I’m not much of a product person. But I was recently treated to some goodies from the Fresh location on Newbury Street and have fallen in lust. Grapefruit Eau de Parfum has quickly become my new summer scent, and the Rose Face Mask is the first mask I’ve actually looked forward to putting on. They also have the greatest Gift Bar— I sometimes feel funny giving friends bath and beauty products as gifts… so cliche, no? But the packaging at Fresh is CLUTCH & I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t be excited about getting one of these boxes.
Oh and Fresh’s SPF Sugar Lip treatment? I own about six now.
Whatchyall looking forward to in the dog days of summer?
