Things I Like Right Now: Summer Edition

Summer is in full swing and I can’t help but smile. Constantly. (Maybe it has something to do with the champagne?)

So since I’m in such a smiley mood I thought I’d share a few things I’m liking right now.

Wimbledon

Crisp whites, royal cameos, epic tennis. I love Wimbledon. It’s easily my favorite tournament of the year. I’m so sad Fed is out of the running this go around! Something about his look just screams Wimbledon to me.

Does that not personify the All-England Club?

Reminder: Must wash white pants.

Brunch

Why must brunch be relegated to Sundays? So uncivilized…

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle

I recently rediscovered this gem. My mom used to buy this when I was young and I distinctly remember that around bath time you could here my sister chanting “Aussie 3 minute miracle!” over and over. I guess it was that great. It still is. After just a few uses it’s managed to transform my straw-like hair into shiny, untangled locks. Nice.

Wedges

I am 5 feet tall. I love wedges.

Cucumber sandwiches

Peanut butter and jelly are fine. But if you really want something light and refreshing, do yourself a favor and snack on one of these.

Refreshing

That’s right: bread, butter (don’t skimp!) and sliced cucumbers. That’s it.

Insider tip: It tastes better if you cut the sandwich into triangles!

Sunflowers

sunflowers

Confession: I used to HATE sunflowers. I blame Elizabeth Arden. I think somewhere in my early teens I came upon a bottle of that perfume, or someone I know did, and it’s artificial, super sweet scent put me off of those darling, happy flowers. Luckily, today I can appreciate the simplicity of a few of these stems in a simple vase. They’re also ridiculously cheap right now.

Jergens Natural Glow Firming Lotion

In an effort to practice safe sunning, I’m trying to depend less on laying out and more on this. The smell is a little strong, but after two applications I’ve noticed a nice tan develop on my legs and it’s NOT orange. For $6 I think it’s worth a try. It also says it’s “firming.” Not sure about that, but couldn’t hurt….

Laughing Cow

To be perfectly honest, I’m ALWAYS obsessed with these.

So tell me, what are you liking right now?
