Jess’s painted tile from Bright Green Door — isn’t it amazing?

Hey guys! I hope you’re having a great weekend. I’m just chilling over here, getting stuff done and taking a breath before next week hits hard.

Here are some of the things I’ve been loving this week:

Best drink: The frosé is *the* drink of the moment. It’s popping up everywhere right now. I have yet to try one but I’m pretty sure that’s going to have to change, and fast. Watch out for a featured recipe here on Napkin Soup soon. Until then, give this one from Kate La Vie a try.

Best DIY: Ever since I saw this project I can’t get it out of my head. Jess’s painted tile at Bright Green Door has to be the coolest diy project I have seen in awhile. It looks like it must have been a ton of work, but what a transformation. It changes her entryway completely. Great work Jess!

Best room makeover: Heidi’s new bedroom for her boys. I’m totally digging how she created a monochrome palette that still feels very kid-friendly. I know my boys would be thrilled with a space like that. It’s all good — the board and batten trim, the brick wallpaper, the chalkboard wall with the moon. But my favorite might be the sweet little details like decorating with Legos and Star Wars Tsum-Tsums. Also — I might have to copy those book racks on the sides of the dresser — what a great idea! Head on over to Honeybear Lane and check it out.

Best makeup review: I don’t know about you, but my makeup routine could use a serious reinvention. I’ve slipped into full Mom Mode and really phoned it in for years a long time now. But I’m over it, and feeling completely ready for renewal in that area. Elsie’s shakedown of her makeup routine at A Beautiful Mess might be just the inspiration I need to change things up. I hate thinking about the toxic stuff I paint my face with (so usually I just try not to think about it, haha). Her reviews are so thorough, and I love how she emphasizes trying to find cleaner products. I might just work through her list one item at a time.

Best dessert inspiration: This Boozy Mudslide Icebox Cake over at Sugar & Cloth. I’m seeing heavy cream, cream cheese, Kahlua, Bailey’s, Trader Joe’s Mocha Jo-Jo’s…I mean what is not to love here?? My birthday is on Monday…I’m just saying.

And that’s it for today. What are you drinking/eating/watching/reading/inspired by right now? Comment below to share! Until then, stay safe, stay hydrated, and use sunscreen.
