Welcome to Summer Sundays! Our weekly edition to stay cool and calm all season with the best reads + recs ☁️
"Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."

Recs for your rest and relaxation:

🌞 New month, new ways to have fun. Sweet summertime can slip by too quickly, so savor it with something to do every day this July. Start with mixing your own cocktail to planning for a getaway.

🔥 Firing up the grill. July 4th kicks off barbecue szn, and
there's plenty to grill besides meat. Load up the grate with avocado to add smokiness and figs to caramelize. Best served with patriotic side dishes.

✈️ Packing up and heading out. Travel is in the books for many of us this time around. Maximize your vacation time by
getting ahead of jet lag and worrying less about what to wear thanks to vacation outfit formulas.

⛱️ Relaxing regardless. If your vacay plans are more along the lines of a staycation,
these hot outdoor-furniture trends can bring the resort-feel to you. IN: big umbrellas, OUT: boring upholstery.

💤 Making the most of the long weekend. When sleep is a full meal,
'rest snacking' refers to other ways to get rest throughout the day. Take 10 seconds to look away from a screen or 10 minutes to take a walk.

P.S.

Last time we asked what is something you've done that has improved your quality of life? Cheers to all of us for living our best lives. Here are a few of our favorite responses ❤️:

✨ "Habit stacking! I'm kinda lazy lol, so I learned to stick to new habits by pairing them with old ones like brushing my teeth and it has been an absolute gamechanger!" ~ Jessica C.

✨ "I finally bought a kindle after the longest time, literally years because I love how actual books feel, but it's so much easier now to take on the go and read anywhere." ~ Ali W.

✨ "Working out! I used to do yoga, then switched to pilates, and I get a great sense of pride after working out :)" ~ Yam Z.
