You guys, Week 26 — we are halfway through the year. Not sure how the heck that happened so quickly! Time flies when you’re having fun, I suppose. As much as I hate to use the b-word, it’s been a busy year so far. My goal is to slow down a little bit when I can over the next month or two to savor the season.

This week went by in a flash, and that’s been a common theme the last few weeks. Everyone is so much more social in the summer, which is amazing, but coupled with an uptick in work events, I really haven’t had much me time lately… And I think that’s why it always seems like, “Wait, where did the week go?!” Working for myself is absolutely amazing a lot of times, but it’s hard to slow down and check-in with yourself when you’re going a mile a minute trying to get everything done!

The theme of this week (other than running around like a chicken with my head cut off) was fun shoots with my photographer! We got to do a cool shoot at AIRE, Happy Place, and even got to preview Yayoi Kusama’s new Infinity Mirrors installation that will be opening in Chicago later this summer. I’ll let you know when tickets are on sale for the Kusama exhibit, but you should definitely check out Happy Place before then!

I’m currently writing this post from 30,000 feet, as I’m heading to a bachelorette party in Austin for the weekend. Quick trip this time around… I’ll be back home on Sunday! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. And pray for me that I don’t melt in Texas! xoxo jrs

Here are this week’s finds…

My niece’s 6th birthday isn’t until December, but we already know she’s having a unicorn-themed party! 🦄 I’ve booked marked this float and this neon light for gifts… It’s going to be hard not to buy allllll of the things.

I am LOVING this beautiful dress! Both the blush pink and the navy are stunning. Great for work or play!

This tee is so cute for July 4th!

Speaking of the 4th… How to Make a Killer Margarita

This striped set is calling my name for Lollapalooza!

This Supergoop set has all of my favorite SPF products. Highly recommend scooping this up if you haven’t tried this! (Plus, the bag is so cute.)

How fun are these raffia earrings?!

Also loving this ivory pair! I feel like I would wear them with everything.

I have these pants in white and wear them constantly. I need to get another pair, but am having the hardest time deciding on which color! Oddly, I think I love the ochre.

An Instagram follower recommended the Girls Gotta Eat podcast and it is pretty fun! I think Jared Fried is hilarious so, naturally, I enjoyed this episode!

Another reader sent me a link to this Kickstarter this week. The app seems like a cute idea, I’m interested to see what happens. Love the idea of being able to send random little surprises to friends and strangers alike.

Multiple friends have raved about Glossier’s new Body Hero products. I’m a sucker for a shower oil and I love how the cream has AHAs. Read Grace’s review here!
