1| Gal Meet’s Glam recently returned from spending an few weeks in the South of France, and I just had to share two of the posts that’s she’s put up so far, Bastide De Marie & Lacoste, Provence and Saturday Market in Apt, Provence.
5| So I recently discovered blogger The College Housewife through another blogger I follow (Cupcakes & Cashmere) and I absolutely love the post Mediterranean Inspired Beach Picnic. Mediterranean food is one of my absolute favorites (along with Mexican) so I’m excited to recreate the recipes from this post.
6| Mara from M Loves M shares 5 Jewelry Pieces To Make Your Summer Wardrobe Shine. I also absolutely love the dress she’s wearing in this post. Pink is my signature color!
7| Do not even get me started on how delicious these Raspberry Cheesecake Popsicles from The Sweet and Simple Kitchen look. They’d be the perfect way to cool down after spending some time at the pool or a fun way to end a summer gathering. Yum! I’m also eager to try out this Lemon Feta Dip with Garlic Tomato Vinaigrette from Half-Baked Harvest since I’ve recently found some sheeps/goat milk only feta from our local Fresh Market.
11| If you need some new products to try out in the bath, check out New Darlings Favorite Bath Products. The Calm Bath Salts (Herbivore Botanicals) have been on my list of products to try for awhile now.
12| Don’t have the perfect bag to take with you to the beach this summer? Chriselle of The Chriselle Factor gives you some options in her post Summer Beach Bag Edit. (for another post of Chriselle’s check out #16)
13| It’s been almost 2 years since I started growing my hair out, while I’m still working on finding the length that’s perfect for me, I have been looking at a lot of hair tutorials on the web, and I love the post How to Give Yourself the Best At-Home Blowout from Cupcakes & Cashmere.
