summer nail polish

What nail polish are you wearing these days? For summer toes, I like either Essie’s Fishnet Stockings or Mademoiselle. I’d love to hear your recs! (I don’t paint my fingernails because I went back to the world’s worst habit, harrumph.)

smitten kitchen strawberry cake

Strawberries are in season right now, and baking is beckoning. This summer cake has been our go-to for years, and wouldn’t you love to try this crumble or galette? Smitten Kitchen always gets it right.

books baseball cap

My dermatologist instructed me to keep my face shielded from the sun as much as possible this summer, so I’m in the market for hats. This baseball cap would be perfect for book lovers, which I know many of you are!

go dog go open letter

Have you ever read the Open Letter to the Female Hat-Wearing Dog in ‘Go Dog Go’? Raquel D’Apice wrote it back in 2016, but I still laugh regularly at the genius concept. An excerpt: “You don’t even know me, but I wanted to take a minute to tell you that what matters is that you like your own hat, hat-wearing female dog. Who is this guy anyway, some sort of dog hat expert?? Who cares what he thinks??? Wear a hat you love and if he doesn’t like it? F*#% him… Just because someone owns a bowler hat doesn’t make them the Tim Gunn/Bill Cunningham of the dog fashion universe.”

P.S. More fun things, and minivan blue nail polish.
