Best New Flick- We just saw Letters To Jackie and couldn’t have loved it more. If you enjoy the Kennedy family as much as we do, this is a must see!

 Best Facelift- Somewhere along the road feminism got a bad name. So 3 well known ad agencies have taken the movement on as client and are attempting a rebrand in conjunction with the magazine Elle UK. Below is just one of the pieces created, check out more here!

Links That Light Us Up

3rd Edition

We’re back with more link lovin this week!

These are so good we aren’t going to waste any time getting into it. Here we go…

Best Icy Treat- What could be better than an “ice cream” made completely of cold brewed cinnamon coffee? (the infamous Blue Bottle coffee from San Francisco, might we add)  Absolutely nothing could be better than Steve’s Ice Cream on a hot summer day, or any day for that matter. Non Dairy too!

Best View- We wouldn’t mind taking the rest of the month off to just sit and admire the view below. Welcome to Lake Garda, Italy.

Best New Age Stationery- We’ve got our sites set on a more economical, and more eco-friendly way to embrace the art of letter writing. See ya later snail mail, with Paperless Post you can send the prettiest e-cards that exist on the web within an instant.

Best Appetizer-  Say hello to The Pioneer Woman‘s Watermelon Pico De Gallo. This looks so refreshing and delicious, we want to make this by the gallon.

Best PSA- This gem came to us from Women On Fire member- Elle Celeste. It all starts with a question, “ I need feminism because...” One minute we had chills and the next we were laughing hysterically.

Powerful message about Feminism[pinit]

Best Bath- WOW that’s cute.

Best Summertime Sips- Leave it to Cupcakes and Cashmere to design a tasty menu of summertime cocktails that are chic enough for any outdoor soiree and easy enough for just about anybody (over 21) to make.

Best Tunes- Have you heard of Pigpen Theatre Co. yet? They are a set of seriously talented young guys, singing Adele’s ( we LOVE her) hit song Someone Like You.

p.s. if you live in Chicago, we encourage you to check out their theater performance that’s coming to the windy city this fall!

Best Photo Blog- What happens when you take 14 photographers (that all happen to be moms), present them with a different theme each week, and add in their families? Spilled Milk, heartwarming and hillarious.
