Spending the entire season apart from your love is, well, a Summer bummer. Maybe you're braving the distance because one of you is studying abroad or going on a long trip — or maybe you're part of the permanent LDR club. Either way, one way to keep the love strong is with meaningful goodies as gifts. Put them all together as a sweet package, or mail them separately for surprises that keep on coming. Ahead, check out finds that'll make the break bearable until you see each other again.
There's no doubt about it — everyone wants to stand out at a job interview. And one of the easiest ways to do that (besides being awesome, of course) is by how you look, because we all know the power of a first impression. So the next time you reach for that stuffy black suit because it's what you're supposed to wear, consider additions that will make all the difference in letting your fun personalty shine though.
We hope these subtle touches, no matter what the job, will make you ready to rock the interview and land the gig in no time.
- Dorothy Perkins Geo-Print Jacket ($44, originally $79): Blazers don't have to equal boring! Go for a print that's unique yet not too bold for an interview.
- Campo Marzio Document Holder ($25): Carrying documents can be chic when you tote them around in a colorful case that pops.
- Kate Spade Stud Earrings ($38): Consider stud earrings your interview jewelry go-to, especially ones in a beautiful hue.
- Jeffrey Campbell Cap Toe Pumps ($148, originally $185): Heels with a subtle touch of flair, like a rose-gold cap, bring sophistication to a new level.
- Vincent Longo Lipstick ($23): Sure, you shouldn't put on a full face of makeup for a job interview, but you can never go wrong with a light touch of color on the lips.
- Paper Source Painted Garden File Folders ($11): Rule number one: always bring your résumé to the interview. Rule number two: always carry it in a pretty (nonmanila) folder.
Along with Summer comes bathing suits, fireworks, and, of course, delicious produce. Can't you just picture biting into juicy fruits and crisp veggies? Luckily you don't have to wait any longer!

For the hot days up ahead, this Santa Fe tuna salad from foxeslovelemons is a perfect go-to dish. Enjoy it as is, in a pita wrap, or served on top of a bed of mixed greens — you choose!

"You're hot. I mean, one of the hottest guys I've seen in Portland, easily. If you'd found me on a fun night out, when I'd had a few drinks in me and a lot more makeup on me, I'd have marched right up to you and told you so. But alas, dear missed connection, you found me in the trash.
You said hi, and I locked up and spewed a weak 'what's up?' What the f*ck, brain? You muttered something about cleaning house and dumped a terrarium containing one dessicated cricket. I thought about asking if your pet died, but the socially conscious portions of my brain told me that would be a bad idea. Maybe your pet was the cricket?
