SIS'S FAVORITE SUMMER PARTY PINS

Happy August! We're getting deep into summer here so if we're not going to be at the beach or in the pool, we may as well be gazing deeply into Pinterest, right? So on that note, here are some of my favorite summer party pins!

BOUNCY BALLS

Do you feel that annual excitement when Target puts out the big display of bouncy balls every summer? Me too! How amazing are bouncy balls? Lets count the ways. They come in an array of visually pleasing colors, they're bouncy, they are more fun to play with than any other ball (factually-proven), they're cheap, great for beach, pool or park, and they make your summer better instantly.

We're ready for Labor Day!

FIVE THINGS TO INSPIRE YOUR LABOR DAY CELEBRATION

When I think Labor Day, I think hot dogs and hamburgers at the beach. Right? But what about things like popsicles and lemonade at the park? We've got you covered! Here's some "non-traditional" Labor Day inspiration.

Popsicles are a great dairy-free alternative to ice cream. We loved Sweet Clementine's strawberry-rose treats at the Hedley & Bennett mini apron launch.

Nothing is more refreshing on a hot day than lemonade. Nothing! Lemonade by Twink

And lastly, I could be a vegetarian if it came with farmers' market crudités and homemade ranch dip from Heirloom LA every day. Yeah!

BEST MEXICO BEACH RESORTS

Mexico, take me away! Summer has unofficially begun and I don't know about you, but I'm dreaming of a relaxing beach vacation. Here's our roundup of the top luxury resorts on beautiful Mexican beaches.

Maybe I've been stalking Tori Hendrix a bit too much on Instagram, but I've become obsessed with Sayulita. If you're more JAP than boho when it comes to your vacay accommodations, there's always the nearby Four Seasons Punta Mita.

If you're feeling like being surrounded by emerald jungle AND white sand beach, then there's the stunning Rosewood Mayakoba on the Riviera Maya.

Los Cabos is just a 2+ hour flight from Los Angeles, and Las Ventanas al Paraíso is a serenely beautiful property.

One & Only Palmilla holds a special place in our hearts. Twink honeymooned there and then I got married there. What an incredible place. Can't wait to get back.
