My weekend recap is a little light today, because truthfully I spent most of it hiding in my air conditioning from the crazy heat wave we’ve been having in Boston. I ventured away from the window unit in our bedroom for just enough time to mix up some St Germain cocktails – anything to stay cool and refreshed! How did you beat the heat this weekend?
I went back through a few snaps from the weekend on Instagram, and combined they just look like Summer. I stocked up on lemons to make a delicious, fresh cocktail with elderflower cordials, wild tea vodka, and sparkling lemon water (I got thirsty just typing that!). And another highlight of the weekend was the arrival of a crisp new pair of Jack Rogers sandals in the mail — I had some very happy feet. What were you up to this weekend?
I’m very excited to kick-off a new series on the blog today where some of my favorite bloggers are going to share their summer entertaining essentials for being a savvy hostess this season. Kicking off the series is my new friend Sarah of Chevrons and Stripes!
I was so excited when Kate invited me to guest post on my summer entertaining style because I absolutely live for the summer social season (phew, that was a lot of s’s)! I’ve spent every summer since I was born at my parent’s beach house in Bridgehampton, NY and below are a few of our BBQ and bonfire essentials. Stock up folks, because beach season is upon us!

Disclaimer: I am NOT a Twihard. BUT, I did get invited to a New Moon movie party and had fun last night with some other vampire-obsessed gals. I have to share the hostess’ smart party idea… she melted down red candies and rimmed the top of the cocktail glasses with candy “blood.”
How cute are they? I think the idea could be repurposed for any theme party… pink candy for a bachelorette party? Orange for a Halloween party?
I’m cranky that I’m at work and not heading back to school with a crisp new package of loose-leaf paper in my Lisa Frank trapper keeper.
Being a grown-up can really stink sometimes… except for when I remember that grown-ups get cocktails.
Perhaps the best of both worlds would be a Pimm’s Cup in this notebook paper inspired glass? Yes, I think that’s a fair compromise.
