Weekend Favorites: 7.1.16

July is here and we’re sipping all the cocktails, soaking up sunshine and loving every second of it. Enjoy these weekend favorites from around the web!

There isn’t anything I don’t love about the month of July. Fireworks. Hot, steamy weather. Patio season in full force. Cocktails. Amazing produce. Really good BBQs. Sunset walks. Less than six months til my birthday.

I actually may have described the perfect month.

Guess how we’re starting it? With a mini vacation to Playa del Carmen, Mexico! Not a work trip, just pure relaxation with my love. We leave tomorrow morning and can’t wait to eat, drink and sink our toes into the warm white sand.

Don’t get me wrong, when we are home, we LOVE Chicago summers. The other night we made lemon marinated chicken and homemade hot jamaican jerk sweet potato wedges. DELISH.

What are your plans for the long weekend? Anything exciting? Tell me!

And finally, here’s what you’ve been waiting for…

100% need a pair of these new adidas.

Loved this moody bedroom reveal.

Zara is having an amazing sale. Currently obsessed with these.

Dying over these healthy, gluten free fig newtons!

I’m unbelievably obsessed with this jumpsuit.

How to deal with negative emotions. We all have them.

Please let me guzzle this Rose Slush.

Just got this new food processor and feeling pretty jazzed about it.

Loving these healthy no bake frozen berry tarts. Festive at its finest.

What you should never ask someone who has lost weight. Do you agree/disagree?

REALLY want to make these korean chicken breasts soon.


As always, thank you for being here! Hope you have a happy & safe 4th.

FYI I want to keep this week short and sweet for you. More details about all my recent adventures and the Summer Sweat Series will be coming in my monthly Best of post!
