Around the web this week we've got a spin on traditional cookies, skin supplements (both internal and external), funky earrings that make me want to book a flight to Havana, the most beautiful smoothies you've ever seen, and more right below.
My plan this weekend is to check out rockaway beach with my friend Val, and eat all of the fish tacos in sight. I also want to see a movie and maybe go on a day trip with my brother. Seems like tomorrow will be a rainy saturday, so maybe we'll try an extensive cooking project like homemade croissants. Do you have recommendations for what to do on a rainy day in Brooklyn? And how about you? What do you have planned?
Undoubtedly the best part of summer is the simple fact that weekends are almost always spent elsewhere. I'm realizing that for the last month, we've gone someplace or another to soak up the sun and get in a swim or two. The cute polaroid photo of me up top is from our recent camping trip! But this weekend, the tides have turned and I'm staying put. Brandon is off on his bachelor party (if you're reading this B, behave!) and I'm holding down the fort in Brooklyn.
When we arrived on the beach one morning, I reached for my trusty La Roche-Posay bottle. Brandon asked me if we had any reef-safe sunscreen, and I am embarrassed to say I had no clue what he was talking about. I’d never even heard of such a thing, and I am someone who buys and invests in sunscreen frequently. I shook my head, and proceeded to slather on the cooling French SPF. I thought about it more as I sat in the water for almost an hour. How many people are there swimming in an ocean right this minute? How many of those people will swim more than once in that same day? Are all of them wearing sunscreen? Is all of that sunscreen washing off into the ocean?
Inspired by one of my favorite blogs, Cup of Jo, I've decided to do a weekly roundup post sharing some odds and ends on the internet that I've found or read or cooked or loved. I hope you enjoy checking these out!
