Technically, the golden hour describes a time of day. But it’s so much more than a time of day. Beloved by photographers, these moments are filled with light that bathes everything in a gilded, hazy perfection. Seems to us that Mother Nature was the original Instagrammer.
There are certain events and celebrations that truly give you a sense of the season, and if you grew up in a small town, you can probably connect with our love of the annual summer fair. Passing by one now is immediately transporting: the rides, the sounds, the smells—not to mention, the chance for silver screen-worthy summer romance. If you ask us, the memory and magic of those nights spent wandering hand in hand through the fairgrounds lasts long after the crushes have faded.
You know what can make these summer days a little cooler, and a little sweeter? Ice cream. Because ice cream is always a good idea. Other good ideas? Keeping a healthy stock of options in the freezer at all times, and a well-maintained Pinterest board for when cravings (and inspiration) start to spike along with the temps.

It's hard to top the Brazilians when it comes to two things: football, and style.

And this weekend, they're kicking off the finale of the sport they dominate: Brazil, leave some fun for us!
What do you say that we forget about everything on our to-do lists (unless, of course, it's a fun one like this), all the chores and the errands and things that make our heads spin... and why don't we have a spring-time party instead? Does that sound good to you?
