WHAT WE AT MyLittleBird learned this week is that you love summer dresses as much as we do! We heard from friends and family (and a couple of strangers) who shopped Janet Kelly’s dress roundup and found something to buy. One of you was ahead of us, already owned the black Saint + Sofia dress, shown above left, one of the company’s best sellers of the year. Apologies to all whose size was no longer available.
Speaking of summer, Nancy Pollard’s Kitchen Detail blog heralded peach season with fascinating historical lore and, most important leading into the Fourth of July weekend, innovative recipes that let peaches command center stage. Roasted-peach Bellini, anyone? Yum!
Meanwhile, How Not to F*ck Up Your Face columnist Valerie Monroe and Well-Being columnist Mary Carpenter both tackled age-old problems. Val talked about the cowlick we’re all trying to tame, you know that almost bald spot on the back of your head? (If you don’t know, you haven’t been paying attention.) And LittleBird Mary waded into the hopeful, but still tricky, world of hearing aids, just in time to sort through the law that will go into effect this fall allowing online sales of the devices (which will no doubt lead to lower prices but also some complications).
Offbeat as usual, Green Acre columnist Stephanie Cavanaugh pointed us to a New York Times article we had missed. It’s the story of extreme recyclers who are recycling their own . . . urine. Weird, yes, but it turns out that human urine is composed of the very nutrients plants need to thrive. Peecycling! Who knew?
Okay, we’re chilling for the Fourth of July, which is tomorrow. We get only one of these a year, so enjoy! We’ll be back on Tuesday.
