LifestyleWhat to Do This Weekend: TGIF

Happy almost-weekend, Lulus loves! While this Friday afternoon is winding down, we’re busy making mental plans for how to fill our much-needed time-off hours (#productivity). Need some inspo for what to do this weekend? We’ve got ya covered with little ways to make the most of your me-time. TGIF, babe.

Host brunch to watch the World Cup Finals

Embrace the weird timing of the World Cup Finals (starting at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT on Sunday, July 15) and have some friends over for a fun-filled brunch to watch the game. Brew a pot of coffee, pour some OJ (Champagne optional), and set up an easy breakfast buffet with bagels and cream cheese, bacon, and fruit for a low-key meal. Or get totally into it and represent the competing countries with traditional breakfast foods from France and Croatia. Pick up some croissants and baguettes for team France and pair meats like prosciutto and salami with cheese and beer for a morning meal worthy of team Croatia (yes, we did have to Google traditional Croatian breakfast and yes, we want to try it). Sounds like breakfast #GOAAAAAAALS (sorry, we had to).

Clean your makeup brushes (and makeup bag)

Raise your hand if you’ve maybe–just maybe–gone a little bit too long between cleaning your makeup brushes. We’re not judging, we promise! While it’s recommended to clean your brushes at least once a week to prevent buildup and bacteria that can transfer to your face, we know sometimes it’s just easier to swipe on your highlight and go, without taking the time to suds up your brushes and sponges. This weekend we’re taking a few extra minutes after our makeup routine to clean our brushes and wipe down the inside of our makeup bag. You can use brush cleaner, gentle shampoo, or even olive oil and dish soap to get your brushes squeaky clean and ready for a flawless application come Monday morning, while a disinfecting wipe or soft cloth and natural cleaner can make your makeup bag feel so fresh and so clean.

Try a new drink

We can’t be the only ones guilty of sipping on the same flavor of sparkling water every afternoon or only ordering our go-to cocktail when we go out on the weekend. It’s comforting to know your tried-and-true faves are always there, but this weekend, we’re vowing to step ever-so-slightly out of our comfort zones to try something new (besides Croatian breakfast). Whether it’s simply choosing the key lime La Croix instead of the pamplemousse (baby steps, people) or going all out and mixing up a pitcher of a yummy cocktail or mocktail from our Happy Hour archives, trying something new is believed to have some major benefits for your happiness and wellbeing. Cocktails for your health? Yes, please.

FashionWhere to Wear: The Perfect Purse for Every Adventure

Just as much as you need your purse to match your outfit, sometimes matching your bag to where you’re going is just as important! With summer in swing, and a full calendar of fun on the horizon you’re sure to need a new bag to tote along on every adventure! Here are a few of our fave trending bags and where to wear them!

Exploring in the City

If you’ve got a trip to the big city planned, whether it be LA, SF, or NY, you’ll probably be doing a lot of walking while you explore. A backpack is a chic, hands-free option that allows you to bring your essentials as well as stow away any trinkets or souvenirs you pick up along the way! With a bold red pop of color and minimal design, the Sidewalk Stunner Red Backpack will be turning heads as you wander around. Print fans are sure to love the Clarissa Black and White Gingham Backpack for it’s trendy gingham pattern and all the room it has to pack goodies on the go. Take it along shopping and stuff it with all your scores. If you’re planning on traveling light, the Perfect Grade Taupe Purse is chic choice that goes with everything and is easy to wear thanks to its crossbody design that you can sling over your shoulder on the go!

Beach Day

If you’re heading to the beach for some seaside sunbathing, you’re gonna need the perfect beach bag to bring along sunscreen, beach towels, and of course a glossy magazine to read (or block the sun while you nap). The Billabong Soak It Up Washed Black and Beige Round Woven Tote is the perfect size to store all your beach day needs, not to mention it has a trendy circle design that’s to die for! Planning the perfect beach picnic? Pack up your snacks (and maybe a bottle of rosé ) in the DeGarmo Tan Woven Basket Bag and you’re ready to snack in style! If you’re looking for a more beach glam vibe, the shiny silver threading and bucket design of the Lulus Perth Ivory Woven Bucket Bag is sure to catch your eye and carry all your goodies.

Weekend Getaway

Taking a road trip? Or maybe a weekend escape to the coast? You’ll need something big enough for for a few outfits, but nothing so big that you’ll end up over-packing. Solution: Weekender Bag. Classier than a duffel bag, but not so big it’s a suitcase, the Stay the Night Brown Weekender Bag will hold your daytime ‘fits, OOTN, and even an extra pair of shoes! Off to a seaside getaway? Tote along a towel, swimsuit, and sandals in the Jet Setter Cream and Black Striped Weekender Bag! If you’re taking a road trip with your gal pals, the First Class Tan Striped Weekender Bag will pack your weekend essentials, plus some extra looks when you just can’t decide what you’ll end up wanting to wear!
