Another summer month is underway, and before we get too far into July, it’s time to set my agenda. The first part of this month has been busy with July 4th fireworks shows, a trip to Montauk, time at the beach and pool, and a performance by the Nassau Pops Symphony Orchestra at Heckscher Park last night. So here’s what I have planned for the remainder of the month.
Read: I started reading The Kind Worth Killing, by Peter Swanson, and so far, I can totally understand all of the praise this book has received. It’s a gripping read, and with any luck I should be through with it in a matter of days. Look for another book review to hit the blog soon!
Do: Can you believe I still have not made it out stand-up paddleboarding this season? Yeah, I can’t either! It has been on my agenda for the last couple of months, but weather and time have conspired against me. Here’s hoping this will be the month of my inaugural trip out to the Huntington Lighthouse.
Buy: I thought I would throw this in as a category this month because I scored some major deals during the July 4th holiday. I had been eyeing a pair of laser-cut yoga pants from Anthropologie for some time, but the $98 price tag was a bit steep to justify. So when I saw them on sale in the store in early July, I had to snag a pair. Not only that, but remember those beloved C. Wonder sandals that broke and I tried to glue back together? Well, they have finally been laid to rest, and I picked up two new pairs of sandals over the holiday weekend. I have been wearing my Sam Edelman sandals ever since I bought them at DSW and they do not disappoint. As for the other pair from the Nordstrom Rack — they haven’t seen the light of day yet, but they will.
See: If you are the spy/action genre type, mark your calendars for July 29th — when the new Jason Bourne film comes out. Short of a James Bond film debuting, this is the next best thing, in my opinion. I’ve seen all of the Bourne films (you should catch up, if you haven’t), and I’m really excited for this latest installment. Plus, what better way to cool down on a hot summer day than with a good action film?
Go: One of the summer highlights is always the Great South Bay Music Festival, happening this year from July 14th – 17th. If an evening listening to music with performances from Lonestar, Blues Travelers, and many more — complete with waterfront views — is your kind of thing, this is the place to be.
What’s on your agenda this month?
