{friday 5}


Memorial Day Weekend always gets me so excited.  The unofficial start of Summer!  Just reminds me of everything that’s right around the corner.  Longer evening.  Sunny days.  Pool days.  Barbecuing.  Cut-off + flip flops.  Lots of cold rosé.  Happy hours.  Family vacations.  Celebrations.  Long weekends.  There is no better way to welcome summer, than to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend.

Weekend plans: Potter Valley Rodeo!  I haven’t been to a rodeo in yearrrsss.  Pretty pumped to dust off my shit kickers.  Some kayaking is on the agenda.  Lots of beer drinking.  And sunshine.  Whatever you do, make it a good one!


ONE – Saved By The Max // Did anyone else DIE over the Vanderpump Rules cast at The Max?  Raise your hand if you grew up on Saved By The Bell?  Zack ♥ You guys, I googled that shit.  There is a legit pop-up in West Hollywood.  It’s called Saved By The Max.  ANYONE can go.  It looks just like the Max too!  Kinda like the Museum Of Ice Cream + The Color Factory, but all about Saved By The Bell.  Basically it’s a place to go and get all the cool pictures that are wayyy insta worthy!

$40 a person and you can choose Brunch or Dinner in either The Max or Mr. Belding’s Office.

Check it out here: Saved By The Max

I really aged myself when I tried to have a convo with Bay about it…Ha!  “What’s Saved By The Bell?”

TWO – Cilantro Vinaigrette //  You will want to put this shit on EVERYTHING!  Swear.  Sandwiches.  Salads.  Over cheese…yum.  Put a dollop over hummus.  Toss with your veggies and roast.  I even added some to ranch dressing.  WOW!  I’m going to marinade chicken in the little bit that I have left.  It’s got a little kick, but Bay didn’t seem to notice.

I’m tell you this stuff is gold.


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • big ass bunch of cilantro (or 2 small ones)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (still in love with Seka Hills evoo)
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Toss everything in the food processor.  Blend for about 1 minutes, until everything is nice and smooth.

Pour into a mason jar and pop in the fridge.




THREE – Crop Top //  Boxy + cropped + structured = perfect.  Just gimme all the crop tops!  I’m hooked on this look.  Front tucked.  Totally tucked.  Loving it!  And it’s pink.  Not only am I a sucker for a good striped tee, you make it pink and sold!  If you’re down with crop tops, grab this before it’s gone!



Setlist Boxy Top
