We made it to the weekends, friends! I don’t know about you, but I am so looking forward to a three-day weekend. Memorial Day always feels like the official start of summer to me, and the rather warm May weather we’re having is definitely bolstering that sentiment. I don’t have much planned this weekend — I’m going to kind of see where the days lead me — but some sort of beach action and a splash in the ocean is certainly in order, and hopefully there’ll be some ice-cold cocktails, too. What are your plans?
Oh, and as always, here are some fun links from around the web:
+ John Mayer‘s new album, Born and Raised, came out Tuesday, and I love it. But that’s no surprise. (Favorite songs: “Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967” and “Love is a Verb.” But it’s all wonderful.)
+ The hair tutorials on A Cup of Jo are so beautifully photographed. I know everyone’s probably seen them already, but they’re genius.
+ For summer: Bobbi Brown Beach Shimmering Fragrance Oil. Yum.
+ A new Sarasota nonprofit — Brides Against Breast Cancer — sells gently used wedding dresses (often couture), and the proceeds go to cancer support programs.
+ This dress is a stunner.
+ My coworker is reading this book — The Art of Fielding — and says it’s great; I’m adding it to my list. Have you read it?
+ Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream is now available in Sarasota at Morton’s Market. I’m in trouble. (P.S. the lemon frozen yogurt is amazing. Best I’ve had since scarfing down Leopold’s lemon custard in Savannah last summer.)
+ Speaking of the South, my mom and I are thinking of going to Charleston for a few days this summer, and Olivia’s blog is making me wish July would hurry up and get here.
Happy Friday, friends! See you back here on Tuesday. xoxo
