HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

It’s always fun to peek, right? I love looking at the real-estate listings in other cities just for fun. This Palm Springs house is the epitome of Old Hollywood-Midcentury glamour.

Just in time for the official start to summer, Neiman Marcus is having a major swim sale. You can stock up on Mara Hoffman’s bold prints, a sporty one-piece, and one of these gauzy, aqua-blue coverups.

I don’t know about you but I’ll take all the beauty tips I can get – especially when they’re coming from Nina Garcia. The fashion editor gives all the details of her skin and makeup regimen on Into the Gloss.

Speaking of helpful hints, how about a travel tip or two from Tory Burch? The designer’s city guides cover the chicest spots to eat, sleep and be while on vacation.

Who’s ready for a cocktail? A mango-coconut-orange vodka crush sounds like a grown-up slush puppy. I’ll take two. TGIF.

Leave it to Jonathan Adler to turn a simple beach towel into a bold and bright masterpiece. They remind me of Hermès – but without the hefty price tag.
