☆ The Champagne Edit :: Red, White, & Boozy ☆

Happy long weekend!! I’m SO excited for July as it’s one of my favourite months of summer!

I don’t talk often about my full time job on here but this week was our big company retreat which I helped coordinate, so I am really looking forward to some R&R. We had a cosmic speakeasy party which I think is my new favourite party theme. Think very TRON. VERY much my aesthetic.

Anyways, that said, I have a LOT to catch up on in the blog world which I intend on cracking a bottle of bubbly and cuddling up w/ my laptop.

I’m talking blog comments, catching up on some of my favourite blogs {seen here} & leaving the love, instagram DMs, instagram comments, and of course content, content, content for the upcoming week. If there is anything you want to see, let me know!

Also, thank you so much for all the sweet comments on this post. I am seriously blown away from you guys. Your support & kind words mean so much, especially as I get a little personal. Thank you, thank you, thank you as it means the world to me & more you could ever know! I cannot wait to respond to every single one.

As far as the weekend, I am hoping to go to Oysterfest here in SF and meet up with Kasie of the cutie blog Musings on Momentum. I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again, making friends across the interweb is one of my favourite parts of blogging.

Well, that’s all I got! Any fun weekend plans? Tell, Tell!

See you Monday!

EAT ME }: Breakfast Parfait Popsicles by Lauren Conrad :: These breakfast popsicles are pure genius! It’s basically like a frozen yogurt pop which takes no time to create. As we know, I’m on a major popsicle kick so I can’t wait to make these! Prep them on Sunday and you have brekkie for the week!

DRINK ME }: Frozen Bee’s Knees by Imbibe :: The Bees Knees cocktail is one of my favourite classic cocktails! In fact, Reed & Grenough, a favourite bar here in San Francisco’s Marina District has bees on the roof for this.  Making this frozen is genius, especially for a pool treat

READ ME }: HoThe Fake Rolex of Canned Foods by Taste :: This was a fascinating read on the counterfeit & fradulent tomato industry! Who would of thought, right?! About 95% of the San Marzano tomatoes you see in stores are fake. This will also let you know how to find the real deal.

BUY ME }: A Modern Summer Set by Free People :: I’ve been majorly feeling the free people sets {just ordered this one too!} and really have a thing for both the menswear trend & blazers with shorts. Not to mention… it is less than $100! I’d wear it with some white oxford creepers. How would you style this?

DANCE WITH ME }: Aeroplane x Purple Disco Machine – Sambal :: This track is a must for your summer playlist. It’s sexy smooth with a touch of those tropical vibes. Aeroplane & Purple DIsco Machine are both two favourites of mine, and this collaboration is no exception! If you like Nora en Pure or 2014 Thomas Jack {esp this}, you will love this. You can get this track here.
