Links I Love Week 21

My husband and I originally had plans to go away this weekend but ended up staying in Chicago. There is much to do before Wells Street Art Festival, and the list keeps growing. It has been nice to cook at home and have a slower weekend.

Before we begin this week, I wanted to recognize the significance of the holiday weekend in the United States. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for all who have died serving our country. Thank you to those who serve in the military and those with family members who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe daily.

Grab your coffee and croissants, and join me for links I love.

Links I love are filled this week with some great articles. Some lengthy ones caught my attention. With the long weekend, I hope you allow yourself to enjoy them.

I love a good, feel-good story and typically cry at the end of the news broadcast during these stories. One from graduation is “Their Diplomas Came with Cash and a Catch.” A billionaire gifts 1,200 graduates an envelope with cash. They can keep half and must give the other half to a charity or person in need.

I made two amazing salads this week that I can’t stop thinking about. The first was a salad with mint, arugula, and parmesan. The second was a green goddess dressing with pickled onions, kale, and romaine. We added protein, chicken, or fish to go with them. They both can be found in this cookbook. I loved the cookbook so much that I immediately sent my sister a copy. We are always bouncing dinner ideas back and forth.

Caudalie just introduced their sunscreen in the US. I ordered it to try! As you remember from a previous links I love that there are a lot of restrictions in the US on what is allowed to be sold for sunscreens. This is a big move in the right direction.

Memorial Day Sales to Shop

I originally planned a blog post for Friday but decided it was best to post links on Sunday. The retail world has really shifted to a sale-focused holiday. There is no pressure to buy anything here. I wanted to highlight just a few sales.

Boden is 25% off. I find their summer styles to be the best of everything. A few great dresses I snatched up recently have sold out quickly. Their bathing suits are wonderful, too, and super flattering. I size up to a 6 in their clothing.

Manicurist is 20% off during their weekend Flash Sale. I wear their green polish and use all their manicure accessories and tools. My husband asks if everyone brings all their products to get manicures, I do! This is a great starter set; you can add your polishes as you go. Peony is the color I currently have on my toes.

Anthropologie has many home items on sale. I want a new mirror for our dresser and am eyeing some of the ones below. We need a horizontal mirror instead of the vertical one we have now.

Monica Vinader gave me a code for 25% off using  PARISIANSPRING25 

Dermstore summer sale is on now. Use the code SUN for up to 20% I love their travel size items for keeping up my skincare routine on the go
