Here are a few things our editors are loving lately:

From Sheena:

One of my favorite ways to treat myself is buying cute mugs, and I basically have an entire cabinet dedicated to them. I cannot get over how adorable these Mr and Mrs mugs are. Talk about the cutest wedding gift to give yourselves!

With summer in full swing and Colorado having just experienced the most INSANE heatwave, this strawberry Caprese pasta salad has been the most refreshing summertime meal. 10/10 would recommend.

And my absolute favorite way to enjoy dinner in the summertime is on an outdoor picnic. This waterproof picnic blanket will be a total game-changer for your outdoor adventures!

From Katie:

I’m still working my way through some fantasy reads and the next series on my list is the Darker Shade of Magic series by V.E. Schwab. Can’t wait to dig into these!

Why is this Haunted Mansion-inspired house on TikTok giving me such good vibes? The details are *chefs kiss.

Everyone raves about the Glossier Brow Flick and I’m finally going to try it! Eyebrows are not my strongest skill but this one makes it looks easy for natural, fuller eyebrows!

From Britt:

Okay, I have a show you can binge in two days and not feel like a potato after. Starstruck on HBO Max stars and was written by comedian Rose Matafeo and she is a revelation! Nikesh Patel is the movie star she collides with on NYE and it plays out like a modern Notting Hill in 6 perfect 30-minute episodes. I loved it so much!

If you’re planning a bridal shower or any kind of party this summer and need a simple centerpiece, you need to get these bud vases from Target ASAP. They are much bigger than they look at $15 for 9 of them! They’ll sell out soon!

Please only serve me water like this from now on.

From Jacqueline:

One of my friends recently had an adorable baby boy! As a way to say congrats, I gifted them this Lovevery play-kit subscription. They’ll then receive a box every 2-3 months with toys, goodies, and more.

I’m going to be in a wedding this weekend for one of my college besties and she gifted her ‘maids perfume to wear for the occasion. Each bridesmaid was able to pick a scent from Le Labo and I chose Another 13. It smells sooo good!

I’ve grown up playing tennis, so I’m so happy that Wimbledon is back this year! I’ve been tuning in to watch every day this week.

Have a great weekend!
