I may be a week late, but better late than never to let you in on the spiked, crushed watermelon popsicle recipe I made for Lulu’s last week! Technically I’m not late, I just sensed you needed a popsicle recipe specifically for this weekend, am I right?
Don’t worry, there’s also shared how to make a non-spiked version, but what we should really be taking away from this is that they have the rind! I mean, how cute is that?! Pop on over there to see the how to, and I’ll catch you on Monday with more goodies! xo
Once upon a time in May (don’t you love when anti-climactic stories start off this way?), I was at a Smilebooth event and met a lovely lady, Corey, who I asked to be best friends with me about 5 minutes into knowing each other. She had made this amazingly clever backdrop with chicken wire and paper and I was in love.
Technically, first I tried to convince her to start a blog, then I tried to convince her to come work with me, and then I asked her if we could be best friends. Alas, she has young kids and quit her corporate job to be able to be home with them so I have to wait a few years. In the meantime I’ve come up with a version of her project that you can use as DIY paper wall art, or make an even bigger version for your own backdrops until Corey will come hangout with me in the studio everyday and share all of her cool stuff with you…

We all know when it’s the thick of summer, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven. However, one of my favorite desserts, EVER, is a cheesecake. So what is a girl to do? Make no-bake cheesecake of course.
This riff off of a classic pb&j sandwich is the perfect, creamy treat for a hot summer day. Eat one or two for a snack, or eat a bunch cause this recipe is just that darn good! Did I mention it’s also quick and simple, can’t beat that…
Well as if Amazon Prime hadn’t gotten out of hand enough for me, my lovely contributor Nanette went ahead and introduced me to Chairish. Now I’m three mid-century gem impulse purchases away from needing a billboard hotline number for intervention.
Have you been to the site before? It’s a really, really well curated version of all of the prettiest previously loved home furnishings and goods from all over the country that you can buy and have shipped to you. I mean, it’s like an A+ flea market high at your finger tips, 24/7. I refused to let myself keep the iPhone app because we’re currently working on two room makeovers to share with you this month (yay!), and it was getting WAY too easy to justify them as business expenses.
All of this to lead me to my next point, which is Chairish kindly asked if I’d be interested in sharing a collection of my favorite items from the site which I replied in a very cool, calm, and collected way “YES!” and then proceeded to run a lap around the studio. I’ll cut to the chase and share twelve of my favorites here and then leave you be to browse the rest of my selections here, plus…
