Shop the Lands End Swim Sale
Draper James x Lands End Collection is gorgeous. Everything is 60% off with code SPLASH. Swim shorts are excellent for those of us who don’t adore our thighs. I just got a pair of these in plain navy with the Draper James gingham swim tank top and LOVE THEM – they are flattering and comfortable. Perfect for the boat, beach, & pool!!

Pop a bottle & celebrate Father’s Day
Speaking of popping bottles, why not open a bottle of Gloria Ferrer sparkling this weekend and make this delicious smoked salmon and blinis appetizer? So so good. Buy some cool, natural shaving essentials from Bare + Bloom and you’ve planned the perfect celebration.
Watch Love Life
After you’ve made a spread and opened a bottle of sparkling, tune into HBO Max’s new show Love Life. The first episode will have you hooked. Narrated like a bedtime story by a lady with a British accent, the ten-episode series follows Darby Carter’s (Anna Kendrick) love life from first romance to her last.
Order fancy olive oil
The best olive oil is back in stock at Jordan Winery. It’s buttery and nutty and delicious. Whisk it with apple cider + honey as a salad dressing with mixed greens. Mix it with pasta, asparagus, a squeeze of lemon, and Parmesan. Dip a crusty baguette into it. Whatever you do with olive oil, it will be better with this olive oil. The flavor stands out so much, you really don’t need to add much else.
