And just like that, it's summer in the Midwest, roaring in with hot and humid temperatures well into the 90s. To help you beat the heat, here are some of my favorite finds this week to help you stay as cool as a cucumber.
Lighten up with blush wines. A favorite brand of mine to serve at my annual Kentucky Derby party, 14 Hands Winery from the state of Washington, has just released a Rose'.
It's described on the label as opening with a "delicate aroma of rose petals and rhubarb." Next the "refreshing flavors of melon and strawberries are followed closely by a kick of citrus in the finish."
Ditch the heavy scents and give your home some tropical ambiance of this three-wick Palm Leaves & Mango candle by Bath & Body Works.
Also from Bath & Body Works is Wild Lavender Mint foaming hand soap. Fill your kitchen or bath with the scent of summer's herbs.
And lastly, what Cowgirl could resist these adorable cactus napkins to freshen up their bar cart? Both patterns were found this week at HomeGoods.
