Simple Pleasures

Six months following the end of the holiday season, the long 4th of July weekend marks the first real break, in the time since, on the American calendar. This week, it seems as though everyone’s minds have left for vacation prematurely, and rightfully so. I’ll be heading to Michigan tomorrow to spend time with my family and friends (and one-year-old golden retriever, Pippa!), and look forward to stepping away from this sweltering NYC summer for a bit. Also on the agenda: taking advantage of pools and nature, tasting everything Dairy Queen has to offer (enough of those coupons and tempting ads when a DQ is nowhere in sight!), cooking with my mom, and heading out on “fun drives” (driving with no specific destination in mind). Hope you have a great holiday!

Above: A few of Deborah Lippmann’s famed glitter nail polishes. Now if only she could come up with a polish remover for all of that stubborn glitter…
