ONE || 4th of July Food
July 4th is inching closer and I have a feeling you've got some plans that involve grilling with friends, or picnicking with the family.. Today I'm hosting a little recipe swap with fellow lifestyle blogger Stephanie Spring. She's got some tasty goodies worthy of any Independence Day celebration and this fan favorite, Summer Quinoa Salad, is easy to make, light, and delightfully fresh. You can also follow Stephanie here for more recipe ideas and inspiration!
TWO || Seven Secrets to a Bright Smile
I recently worked with my friends at SheKnows on a campaign for something we all want... white teeth!! Most of us are willing to jump through hoops to obtain them, but I listed a few secrets to a super white smile... you can read the full article HERE. And yes, that includes sporting some pretty, bright, and bold lips too ;)
THREE || All Things Red, White, and Blue
So many patriotic sales going on this weekend! If you're on the hunt for fashion, furniture, or anything online, be sure to check out your favorite sites for some must-have sale savings... I've rounded up a few American staples that are all on major sale right now, too.

FOUR || TV Time
Now that some of our favorite go-to shows are on summer hiatus, I'm hoping I can find a new show for Jeff and I to watch together... let's face it, he is a TV connoisseur, yet my tastes tend to stay towards the Real Housewives franchises, unless we're talking Game of Thrones and Homeland and then I'm hooked. So for you fans out there, what should our next series be?!?!?! I want your thoughts on Downton Abbey and Orange is the New Black...
FIVE || Independence Day
I am SUPER excited to get the long, holiday weekend started!! Taking the afternoon off so I can enjoy some BFF time by the pool with Meg, then tomorrow we are off to the Hickok's Annual July 4th Party with the kiddos [to be dressed in all-American colors of course], and then we're spending the rest of the weekend at the lake... taking in some sun, plenty of cocktails, cookouts, and fireworks too. Cheers to the next few days of R&R and celebrating the land that I love.
