• Outdoor Party Done Chic!

    Ah, the outside entertain… True mark of the summer season. We’re not talking your regular picnic table gathering, though. We’re talking bringing out the style. All the way out. Susan Feldman of One Kings Lane gave the LifeMinute crew some solid (and patterned!) tips…



    Get Prepped!
    Preppy prepped, in fact! Colors and patterns are summer ready, so make them your mainstay. Snag some containers and stock em with sunscreen, sunglasses and towels for a quick grab as you and your guests are head out the door and into the fun.


    Not just any towels, mind you. Spruce it up with brand new beach-y numbers designed to wow. One Kings Lane collab’ed with names you love, like Nanette Lepore, Tracy Reese and Rebecca Minkoff, for eye-popping, charity-supporting signature beach towels that truly up the layabout!


    Brighten Up The Details!
    Continue the bright pattern trend into the outside with throw pillows and ditch the paper plates in flavor of shiny melamine tableware. It’s a durable alternative, and a bold hue-n-pattern mix-n-match looks fab across the table.


    Chill in Comfort!
    A cabana beach chair is going to give you a lounge like no standard folding chair can! Feel resort-y in any outdoor space, color match with your other essentials to round out the look, and hey! you know that kicking back on one is going to work all sorts of St. Tropez glam with an elegant sun hat…


  • Sips & Tips for Summertime Soirees!

    Ladies, you know we gotta get our social on, amirite? When better than Memorial Day weekend to start thinking about hosting summertime soirees that go down in Instagramable history! It’s a simple recipe…


    A Cheers!-y Cocktail
    Refreshing, puuurdy to look at, and no blender required! Bacardi Classic Cocktails just unleashed a scrumptious sipper — guilt-free 95 calorie Light Strawberry Daiquiri that’s ready to pour right over tall glass of ice. Snazz it up with some lime wedges and starfruit… Viola! Instant yum that looks as good as it tastes!


    A No-Fuss App
    Wheat Thins Lime. Genius. All the crunch and 100% whole grain of the original, but these little limited editions are infused with lime. I don’t have to tell you that a dash of lime zest is THE flavor that’s going to matchy-match with just about any summer cocktail… Guests can snap up a handful and get to socializing!


    Grill-able Gourmets
    Who turns down waffle fries and onion rings? Exactly. Alexia gourmet frozen sides are an easy, seasoned (sea salt, pepper, garlic, onion!) way to tide guests over pre-burger. Roll out some tin foil and pop em right on your grill!



    Table Matters
    Keep it pretty, girls! Give your table some color and dimension — flowers, cones, tiered platters.
