It's another sad week here in the world. The horrible attack in Nice yesterday hit home for me, as I was in the south of France on Bastille Day last year. My heart and thoughts are with the city and the victims.
It is HOT here in the Northeast, with the kind of humidity that steams up the windows and creates a halo of wispy hair around my head. To help keep cool, I'm sharing a cocktail that's low alcohol and refreshing. Dare I say it's also hydrating? You can get the recipe below.
I finally stopped buying cheap sunglasses from the pharmacy and sprung for a pair of Warby Parkers. The name of the color of the frames sold me instantly: Himalayan Salt.
In other news in things pink, I'm declaring this the rosé of the season.
Love Hemingway? Me, too. I'm dying to read this book.
