Links I'm Loving

 Is it just me or has anyone else felt a bit blah this week? On Wednesday I made the conscious decision to not watch the news, scroll through my Facebook fed {as much}, and to take a little break from checking messages. I feel like there is so much negativity floating around on TV and social media, and then the news is always so depressing {why can’t they ever just throw in a happy story here and there?}, and I honestly feel like all the negativity is starting to rub off on people… I mean, is it just me, or are there more rude drivers than normal? I honestly feel like we should all make the effort to be a little kinder to ourselves, to our friends, family, and the person standing in line next to us at the grocery {or anywhere}. 

At the end of the day everyone has/is going through some thing at different points in their life and some people carry it better, but that doesn’t mean it bothers them any less. I once had someone tell me that my life had been too easy, and they really didn’t know me well enough at all to make that assumption… In my opinion we can either walk through an issue, climb over it, or carry it with us until we are ready to put it down; I personally prefer the first two options. I will say over the past couple years I have come to the conclusion that you can’t always be happy, but you can work towards a point of feeling content, and you can always choose to be kind. I’ll end by saying this: I think we should all make an effort to be a little kinder to ourselves {because we deserve it} and kinder to other people, because you never really know all the details of someone’s life… Now on to something a little lighter – five fabulous links I have come across this week!!

One// Senior Year

Senior Year is the newest Rebel Wilson Movie that was just released on Netflix. I think it is safe to say that we are all in need of a little bit of light-heartedness right about now. I watch this movie earlier and it was such a fun escape! Highly recommend this movie for the weekend, especially if you need a bit of a pick-me-up!


Two// Ina Garten Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad

Fact: Every single Ina Garten recipe I have ever made has turned out fantastically well! This salad just screams summer to me and look so fresh and beautiful. I will be making this in the very near future…

Three// Sarah Flint Grear Sandal

I basically have a love affair with these sandals. They are perfect for Spring, Summer, and early Fall, plus they are so comfortable! I literally have them in four different colors… needless to say, they are my go-to sandals. These are sandals are an investment and something that you will have for years to come. Be sure to use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID at checkout to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!!


Four// The First Lady

I have only watched the first episode of this series, but so far, The First Lady is simply amazing. The series follows Michelle Obama, Betty Ford, and Elanor Roosevelt through their journey of entering into and becoming the First Lady. 


Five// Hill House Home Swimwear 

I think it is safe to say that Hill House Home is probably best know for the item that first put them on everyone’s radar, the Ellie Nap Dress. A couple days ago Hill House Home just launched their first collection of swimwear, and it is so beautiful. I love how they chose to do a print and a solid in each style and the added details to add a little extra layer details they added. I haven’t purchased one yet {definitely plan to}, but if they are anything like the nap dresses, I’m sure the fit is amazing!
