What are you up to this weekend? We’re soaking up this summer weather, playing heated rounds of Uno, and eating all the tomatoes we can get our hands on. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

The best kids’ shirts, hands down.
Fig caprese looks delicious!
Busy women share the TV shows that help them unwind. (What are yours?)
This headline made me laugh out loud. (New Yorker)
My hair used to get super frizzy in the summer, but this magically solved it.
Oooh, the curve of this vintage lamp!
“I will never get over this photo shoot of plus-size Asian women.”
The teeter totters at the border are incredibly moving.
Plus, two reader comments:
Says Megan on do or don’t: clapping when a flight lands: “In Uruguay, the whole plane erupts in applause every time the plane lands. Who’s going to judge enthusiasm and eagerness to be home? We also clap on the beach whenever the sun sets over the water. Life is hard enough! Let’s celebrate every chance we get.”
Says Olivia on Lulu’s beauty uniform: “I usually read beauty uniforms hoping to learn something that will help me (someone with not much beauty sense and a passel of kids) make the best of what I’ve got. I feel a sense of community in them, because other women’s perspective on beauty often includes the same anxieties I have about my body, the search for magic potions, the long list of things to do to look and feel okay. But Lulu! It felt like she took my hand and said it’s also okay not to bother with all of that. Next time I want to feel beautiful, I’ll try making tea and cake and calling someone ‘darling!'”
