Summer Fridays, Vol 3.
Hey hey summer fridays! So glad you’re here.
My summer chickpea salad on repeat! This is the best thing to prep at the start of each week. I also want to make this grilled whole fish in the next week.
My rosé sangria for sure. I also really want to make a batch of my fresh mint limeade! And my rainbow coconut water spritzers to celebrate Pride!
This weekend I’m totally making a batch of my grilled guacamole. I’m also thinking about making some of my salted watermelon margarita popsicles! It’s a great recipe because you can use some of watermelon juice alone to make popsicles for your kids. And a batch of my smoky summer chicken salad for lunches.
My black raspberry lavender cobbler. It’s incredible.
This perfect chili lime watermelon. It’s so refreshing and has the best bite. See also: I have another watermelon treat coming next week in time for the 4th!
This past week I finished 28 Summers and am now reading The Lies That Bind. If you haven’t joined our book club yet, join here! We just had our June book discussion live on FB last night. And you can find my 2020 summer reading list here.
To my summer 2020 country playlist. I have had this on repeat for the last two-ish months. It’s quintessential summer for me.
If you’re not following Tabitha Brown on instagram yet, run and do so. She is incredible and she just got a show on Ellen’s digital network!
These KNC beauty eye masks! I am obsessed. I’ll talk more about them in my beauty faves this month but they are so good and really stick to your under eye. Perfect for quarantine self care.
This workout tank which is amazing. Do you remember my obsession last summer with the C9 black tanks? They no longer have those, but these ones are amazing. They are cut differently (the cut of the C9 tank was so good) but the fabric is more workout-ish, like sweat resistant. I really love it!
If you haven’t made my banana cake with coffee frosting (it’s been a quarantine staple!), I’m sharing a new video on the recipe page. This cake is unreal. And it’s easy too!
Last year I switched to an academic year planner, which I ended up loving. I’m not sure if I would like the academic year planner if I didn’t have kids, but now it really seems to make sense to me. I just ordered my new passion planner for August! It’s by far the best planner I’ve ever used. I get the largest size with the week starting on Monday.
Maybe my brain is going crazy, but my scent-loving people will get this. I might start wearing a pandemic-only scent. Ha. Scents are insanely powerful for me – one sniff of Sunflowers perfume and I’m instantly transported to sixth grade. One spray of Prada Amber and I’m 22 again. I keep perfumes forever just to smell and remember times in my life. Not that this is a time I certainly want to transport back to, but I still think I need a summer 2020 only scent…

I am the same way about scents, and I also loved the Sunflower perfume when I was in middle school! :) xoxo
So curious about how you use your Passion Planner! I also have the largest size and sometimes feel like it’s too big, as I don’t use the hour-by-hour layouts but use it more for general planning, list-making, habit-tracking, sorta-journaling, and gratitude practice. Do you use the hour-by-hour layouts, or how does your planner take shape? PS I did originally go for the Passion Planner on your rec, and I do LOVE it, even if I might go down to the medium size next year!
LOL cant wait to see what the scent of quarantine is :)
For me….i dont think i will look at a loaf of banana bread the same cuz i baked it so many times. for some reason its the only thing i made multiple times over. Maybe its the scent of purrell ?
I just got my passion planner this week as well, was finding that i had several things coming up for August that I wanted to write down already. I just sized up from regular to large, I am also curious how it will work out. But I use it for work and personal, as my work calendar has too many extra events on it that I need to know are going on but not relevant to my individual schedule. I have used it for two years and absolutely love it!
Peng Lai is my new favorite scent. I want to bathe in it!!
The Champion C9 line moved to Amazon! They’ve got all the stuff Target used to have.
Yes! I was just going to say this. I ordered the C9 tank from Amazon to compare to last year’s Target one, and I can’t see any difference. I love the colors of the new All in Motion one (olive green is my love language) but the cut and fabric don’t work quite as well for me as the C9 one.

You should read the scent keeper 💛
I too am obsessed with those workout tanks from Target. The cut is so flattering and great colors! Definitely planning to make your veggie burger and rainbow coco h2o spritzer.
I just finished Big Summer and really enjoyed it (was I the only one that had no idea THAT was going to happen???) I’m now reading an “older” book – The Dinner List. Since I loved In Five Years so much I had to read other books by her. We received lots of jalapenos in a produce box so I’m going to try my hand at healthier jalapeno poppers (never made or eaten in my life…!). It’s in the 90s here though, so my oven and I aren’t the best of friends.
My quarantine summer scent is Ralph Lauren Collection Lime. I bought when quarantine started and I imagine this is what I would have smelled like during my cancelled vacation to Mexico.
Love the summer playlist! Turned it on at work and makes it more enjoyable :) Can I suggest June by Raihanna Estrada to listen to?

The workout tank- oh my goodness- I ordered the light blue. It is so soft and perfectly stretchy. I’m ordering more right now!
