weekly reads

francescas_headbandsWe’re all getting close to a long weekend and, as a result, we’re all losing a little bit of real-world focus. You, too? It can be tough to stay motivated when you have a weekend of all things red, white, blue and fun staring you down at the other end of the work day.

Quickly – in case you missed it and need some inspiration – we’ve got a bit of a Fourth primer going on the blog this week. There was a recipe roundup of goodies suitable for any kind of celebration, and yesterday we peeked into Francesca’s to take a look at their Fourth of July fashion.

We hope you have some great plans lined up – and that the rest of your week flies by! We’re here to help with that : we have some of our favorite reads (and videos) below, a bit of escapeism before you get to totally log off for three days.


  • Red wine slushies? We’re torn. Probably time to test it out. Food & Wine


  • Jamie Watts may be DC’s most inspiring runner. We won’t lie – this piece literally brought tears to our eyes. Washingtonian


  • Amy Schumer and Anna Wintour swap lives. Hilarity ensues. Vogue


  • Beauty on your own terms? Now that’s a campaign we can get behind. Dove


Happy reading!
