The Little Things

Summer can be such a lazy time…I certainly see my productivity dipping on the weekends these days. I’m enjoying the slower afternoons though and look forward to relaxing, catching up on some reading and grilling this weekend. I think I’m going to make these cucumber gin and tonics since my basil is growing out of control. (be sure to check out my Libations tab for more fun cocktails)

I can’t say enough good things about this Lazy Pesto Chicken Salad that Rosie over at TheLondoner made. It’s insanely delicious and just tastes like summer. (check out her blog while you’re at it- her life is fabulous)

Good read- 6 Ways to Love Your Life

Sick of blow-drying your hair in the summer? Here are the best haircuts for air-drying

I’m listening to such a fun book right now- Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan. It’s all about the uber-rich and elite in Singapore. It’s so fun getting swept away in a story about a jet-setting Chinese lifestyle you can’t fathom…the characters, the outfits, the places they travel, it’s so indulgent…

Enjoy a cocktail when on the plane? Check out these mini/travel sized cocktail kits– they contain everything you need (sans the booze) to make a classic cocktail while at 30,000 feet. Example- tonic syrup, bitters, ginger syrup. They offer them in Old Fashioned, Gin & Tonic and Moscow Mule, just add the hard stuff. What a fun idea for a gift for someone who travels a lot. (I’m having a hard time getting over the price though- yikes)

I am incredibly picky about candles and don't often lean towards "beachy' ones, but oh my...this one from B&BB is lovely. Smells like summer!

Great idea for entertaining. Or just to have on hand.
