Friday Round Up For WinifredBean.co

It can be argued that October is the best month of the year. Crisp autumn air fills your lungs as you stroll under the fire-hued leaves of apple trees. And even if picking apples and watching the leaves change colors doesn’t appeal to you, few can resist the festivities (and candy) that come along with Halloween. Skip the bags of chocolate and whip up a batch of ooey-gooey cupcakes in your cauldron. Slip into something a little more spooky and check out Martha Stewart’s amazing do-it-yourself Halloween makeup tutorials. Let the season inspire your table with painted pint-sized pumpkins as centerpieces. Add flare to your autumn wedding with gorgeous blind press invitations, and an unforgettable “guest book”—have guests sign blank Jenga tiles to create a fun and unique way to remember your special day!

FRIDAY ROUND UP

September 6, 2013

As the weather cools down across the country, one state is cranking up the heat. Swing by Santa Fe this weekend to torch your taste buds at the inaugural Green Chile Harvest Festival. Celebrate New Mexico’s most bountiful crop with cooking demonstrations, the Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown contest, and spicy hot entertainment. Set your mouth ablaze in your own kitchen by skipping a trip to the desert and whipping up some green chile cheeseburgers at home.

After a summer of sandals in the city and frolicking barefoot outdoors, our feet need a little T.L.C. before slipping into our favorite fall boots. Pamper dry, cracked heels with Butter London’s Stiletto Stick—a swipe or two of this stick will soothe and smooth your tired toes. Put your best foot forward as you plan an autumn-inspired wedding. Sweep your flowing locks into an elegant updo, and welcome guests with personalized iPhone covers that double as escort cards. A transparent sticker printed with guests’ names and table numbers can easily be removed after the wedding, making it a pretty and practical favor.

Happy Fourth of July for Winifredbean.com

FRIDAY ROUND UP

July 5, 2013

Sure, the Fourth of July was yesterday, but don’t pack away the sparklers and sunscreen yet—fireworks are just the start of patriotic partying this weekend.

Give your locks some texture whether or not you’ve spent the entire day in the water, and don’t miss this beach beauty must-have: Kiehl’s BB Cream not only conceals imperfections, it also carries a whopping SPF 50.

The Fourth of July is synonymous with delicious treats, including boozy homemade popsicles that are sure to chill any picnic. If you’re celebrating Independence Day in New York City, get lost at Gilligan’s (310 West Broadway). This pop-up eatery has anchored just for the summer in the Soho Grand’s outdoor space. Sip one (or two) of Gilligan’s cannot-miss Watermelon Margaritas then end your night with a tip of the hat to America’s original colonists. Featured on The Underground Gourmet’s 2013 Best Cheap Eats list, Eastwood (200 Clinton St.) serves fish and chips so good it might have you missing the British... we said might.

Happy Fourth of July, y’all!
