Happy Friday Babes!

We’ve made it another week! Let’s give ourselves a round of applause. As we gear up for the long weekend, I can’t help but ponder about how different this year’s holiday weekend looks compared to year’s past. Usually around this time, I’m preparing for the parade of backyard bbq’s, lawn games and stocking up on my favorite Leinenkugel Summer Shandy. There’s something about taking that first sip around this time that’s almost an inaugural Summer tradition, it hits differently.

This year though, with no lake house visits or afternoon gatherings in sight, I’m kind of taking solitude in the quietness of it all. How many obligations do we volunteer for that we actually don’t have much interest in in the first place? Memorial Day is no exception. Instead of playing merry go ’round to family and friends houses, I’m taking this weekend to do some tasks I’ve actually been looking forward to. Organizing my room, going to a restaurant with a couple of friends (something I haven’t done in a very long time), drinking wine and grilling out on my own balcony. Wow, I really am an introverted extrovert lol. Well, whatever your plans look like this year, I hope you take the extra day to participate in something you actually want to do, and don’t feel obligated to do. You deserve that extra day. You really do.

And if you catch yourself looking for a quick escape, some time for yourself, here are some of the most entertaining links I found around the web this week. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

ALDO x Rocky Barnes collaborate on what I’m assuming will be a collection of our dream Summer shoes

Shaun White stops to skate these neighborhood kid’s ramp and it’s the cutest video you’ll ever see

Jason Derulo tries out a TikTok trend and ends up without two front teeth, omg it’s so bad!!!

The Cuomo brothers are at it again in this hilarious video of Chris teasing the Governor of New York after taking the coronavirus test on live TV

Jeffree Star responds back to backlash of new palette name, I think his response is eloquent and valid and my mom just ordered the palette, I can’t wait to try it!

One of my new favorite personalities on Instagram, Serena Kerrigan, hosts a live dating show on Instagram Live every Friday night called Let’s Fucking Date. She goes on two dates and then recaps with friends on the after show. It’s so entertaining!

Prince William and Kate Middleton have never been funnier than in this video of them playing bingo!

Since we might be more inclined to stay home this Summer, here are 11 pool floats to up your Instagram game

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, happy Friday to you. You know, I though that, after the craziness that was the end of last year, things would start to slow down a little work wise. The exact opposite is my life right now. Check back at the end of February, I should be back to breathing normally by then. In all reality, being busy is good and I’m not complaining! It just means that when weekend time comes, I’m taking full advantage of the two-day mental break.

Speaking of, I cannot wait to get my hair done tomorrow. I usually go about every 6-8 weeks since my hair is naturally dark and I like being blonde, but with holidays and time of the year, I haven’t been since mid-October…yikes. Glad to get that fixed and then spend the rest of the weekend getting my life back in order. What are your plans? If you find some time to take for yourself, here are some great links around the web to keep you entertained! Happy Weekend!
