Weekend Links: {Summer in Maine} Celebration

Hi there! I'm happy to be writing from Peaks Island, Maine. I spent my 30th birthday here with some close friends and we had such a great time that we decided to return this summer.

I just realized that one of my favorite baked goods from Maine, Two Fat Cats Bakery's Mixed Berry Pie, can be bought online and shipped! I'm all for buying local, especially where food is concerned, but this pie is worth breaking that rule for. Trust me.

One Kings Lane is having a great sale on items for handcrafted cocktails. I love that they're featuring Liber & Co. - one of my favorites on my bar cart. This gift pack of grapefruit shrub and tonic would make a fantastic hostess gift, and I'm super eager to try out this pineapple gum syrup, which sounds perfect for a summer cocktail.

Lemonade doesn't need to be boring. Try out one of Glitter Guide's refreshing lemonade recipes. They all look delicious, but The Flair Exchange's blackberry version is on my list for this summer.

This makes me want to go back to Napa ASAP: Praise to Make a Californian Blush: Tasting Napa Ros├ęs (NYT)

Still looking for a fab 4th of July outfit as cute as Megan's? I've updated my Summer Style Board with some fun red, white & blue options. And if you decide to throw together a last minute celebration, start with these party supplies!

Now it's back to my blueberry mojito (recipe to follow next week!)


  1. Thanks so much for sharing our Blackberry Lemonade. Cheers!

    1. My pleasure - I made it this weekend. It's delish!
