Friday Round Up

Sure, the Fourth of July was yesterday, but don’t pack away the sparklers and sunscreen yet—fireworks are just the start of patriotic partying this weekend.

Give your locks some texture whether or not you've spent the entire day in the water, and don’t miss this beach beauty must-have: Kiehl’s BB Cream not only conceals imperfections, it also carries a whopping SPF 50.

The Fourth of July is synonymous with delicious treats, including boozy homemade popsicles that are sure to chill any picnic. If you’re celebrating Independence Day in New York City, get lost at Gilligan’s (310 West Broadway). This pop-up eatery has anchored just for the summer in the Soho Grand’s outdoor space. Sip one (or two) of Gilligan’s cannot-miss Watermelon Margaritas then end your night with a tip of the hat to America’s original colonists. Featured on The Underground Gourmet’s 2013 Best Cheap Eats list, Eastwood (200 Clinton St.) serves fish and chips so good it might have you missing the British... we said might.

Happy Fourth of July, y'all!

So many fun things pop into my head when I think of July 4th...sparklers, American flags, fun picnics and apple pie.  All of these elements would make for the most fun, relaxing wedding!    And we all know southern folk can throw a good down home picnic.  So in honor of our nation's birthday and this weekend's trunk show at The Sentimentalist in lovely Atlanta, Georgia I bring you our July 4th inspired Weekly Wedding Look.  Inspired by the Winifred Bean Sweetheart dress and featuring lovely Atlanta talent like Amy Osaba florals and Sweet Peach Stationary

Here's hoping you have a wonderful holiday week!
