Sorry weekend reading is a day late this week! It’s been a busy one with multiple projects going and hopefully the launch of something new in the coming days. I’m also getting started on my new and improved Newport Guide launching this fall that I’m so excited about. It’s a rainy day here, signing off to entertain a very energetic toddler. Wish me luck.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

I can’t remember if I’ve shared this in CRL but this hair mask by Playa is a game changer. My hair is SO incredibly soft and shiny after I use it. It doesn’t weigh my hair down at all. I use it once a week. (J)
Have any of you seen the documentary P!nk: All I Know So Far? I watched it last weekend and I absolutely loved it. Craid did too. I didn’t know it until now but I’m a huge fan. She’s incredible and it was so cool to see how she balances her family and life on tour. (J)

How wonderful is this resource?

I made this grilled vegetable and burrata sandwich with a lemon thyme honey mustard dressing and it was everything a meatless dinner should be—fully of flavor and oh-so tasty. Plus it’s really adaptable. Swap different veggies in, there was no burrata so we went with fresh mozzarella instead. It was all good and so easy and satisfying. (C)
