    Summer In New England

    1. Currently digesting all of the Newport Folk Festival acts via NPR Music Live in Concert on my podcast app since we couldn't make the festival this year. Why is music even better live? Next up on my list to catch is the band Joseph.

    2. Absolutely in love with this botanical tattoo artist. Her work is completely beautiful! She has such talent and I can't take it. I love when she holds the inspiration pieces right next to her finished work. 

    4. Serena William's letter on body positivity. Yasss!

    5. 25 things to get rid of this fall. Why does fall time always signal us to de-clutter, get organized and start fresh? Whatever the answer I'm on board. I devoured this list of things to get rid of. I implemented the makeup and spice suggestions right away.

    Duxbury Beach, Duxbury Massachusetts, Made in New England, Shop Local

    1. I was excited to see De La Soul has a new album. It came out in the fall but still.... long time waiting on this and didn't really know if it would ever happen.

    2. The swimsuit evolution from the Victorian Era to the Bikini Age.

    3. A lot of my favorite snapchat accounts have migrated to Instagram Stories and I kinda have too. A couple of my favorite Instagram Stories accounts are Weelicious & LIFE. Catherine, a.k.a. Weelicious, is known for her amazing kid lunch ideas and enticing smoothies recipes she makes for her children every day. Her stories are full of great meal ideas even if you don't have kids. She also has an easy, family friendly meal delivery service, One Potato Box, if you live on the west coast.
    Another favorite IG Stories account is LIFE. They share really cool historical photos from past LIFE magazine issues in their stories and on their photo account as well. Think photos like this and this. YES!

    1. This album from Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam (former Walkmen front man & former Vampire Weekend member) was released today. It's been on repeat all day.

    3. Ever get into a mood for a good movie but don't know what to pick? This list, compiled by NPR, tells you "if you liked this, then you'll like that".

    4. Smoke your own cheese. Are you down with that?

    5. Tour Jackie O's childhood home which is now on the market in the Hamptons.
