    Throwback Thursday: Summer Playlist

    As the storms that rocked our nation in the final stretch of summer begin to clear and the healing begins, cooler temps arrive to remind us that the season is officially coming to an end. If you’re like me, you’re eagerly anticipating the colder, sweater weather. But more than just the PSLs and crisper fall air, the season delivers fresh new albums from many anchoring artists in music. The ladies are set to rule the fall season this year with releases from Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Camila Cabello, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, P!nk, Shania Twain and more set to drop before the holiday season arrives.

    National Watermelon Day: Yay for Frosé

    Happy National Watermelon Day! It seems there’s (quite literally) a holiday for everything these days. Listen, I’m always willing to splurge on tacos and margaritas on their official national holidays (October 4th and February 22 for the record) because “why not?,” but others I can’t bring myself to acknowledge. For instance, do we really need a National Stuffed Mushroom Day?! They’re little round nuggets of mold, filled with breadcrumbs… and yes it exists, every year on February 4th. Mark your calendars. Today though, is National Watermelon Day. It may be just as useless and silly as those mentioned before, I love biting into a crisp, sweet, perfectly juicy piece of…
