HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

links

I’m celebrating a birthday this weekend, and one thing’s for sure: cake will be involved. When it comes to my birthday cake, I’ve always favored vanilla over chocolate. Here, the best white cake recipe ever.

I’m (almost) embarassed to type this right now but, until this week, I really had no idea what “on fleek” meant. (It sounds like something coined by Cher and Dion in Clueless.) I am clearly way late to this party. I had to google it and here’s what I found.

When the temperatures start to rise, I have to make some switches in my beauty routine. First up: a must-have exfoliator. Aurelia’s “Miracle Balm” can be used as a scrub (great for when you’re in the shower) or a leave-on mask. I’m obsessed with it. It’s gentle (yet powerful) on my sensitive skin, and it leaves my skin extra soft and with a nice glow. It really is a miracle worker.

Dominoes, Pizza Hut, Papa John’s… When it comes to delivery pizza, everyone seems to have strong opinions as to which one is the best. Check out this taste test to find out which one came out on top.

What is the key to a good marriage? Here’s your answer.
