Weekend Lounge Links:

    August 17, 2012

    You're almost to there, to the weekend! And we have been working to get you some fun, interesting and current ideas for your weekly lounge links! Sit back, relax and take a few minutes to get a few ideas and some fun things to look at over the weekend!

    1. College Campus Fashion: It's almost time for you college students to head back to campus and OF COURSE you're thinking of what to wear! Here is a fun slideshow of stylish alternative outfits to the stereotypical pairing of sweatpants and a hoodie.

    2. Sunset Strip Music Festival: Even if you don't know the bands playing, it is always fun to hear live music! Head out to this music festival and you might hear your new favorite band!

    3. Oogieloves Movie Party: For those of you with young children, this is a wonderful DIY party idea that is sure to be a hit with your kids and their friends (and let's be honest, you'll impress their parents too!)

    4. French-Style Cafés: Flash back to Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. All those beautiful desserts? French pastries, darling. Macaroons are trending nationwide in French inspired cafés and bakeries! Look up a spot near you and go sip a café au lait while you nibble delicately on an airy wafer. Trés chic.

    5. Battle of the Blues: What is more exciting than a little healthy competition? If you or a loved one is into the blues, take them this weekend to hear finalists play in the city!

    6. Creative Desserts: Summer means BBQ's, cookouts, and stone fruits (peaches, nectarines, plums, etc.) are at their most delicious! Here is a recipe using fruits that will have family and friends begging for more! Here at Eventup we love our desserts so give these summer cookout desserts a try at your next cookout and let us know what you think!

    7. Short Haircuts: If you haven't heard, Miley Cyrus has chopped off her long locks for a short, edgy cut! Several other celebrities including Emma Watson and Anne Hathaway have recently started rocking short hair! You don't have to look like Rapunzel to be beautiful, ladies! Short is in!

    8. Boxing Beauty: Olympic Boxer and bronze medalist Marlen Esparza is launching a beauty and fashion line. Can you say amazing? Yes, especially when you find out that part of the proceeds will go to organizations that support childhood fitness.

    9. Where's Waldo? Scavenger Hunt: It's the 25th Anniversary of the man in the elusive striped sweater. If you're in Brooklyn celebrate the event with a fun scavenger hunt for the kids! Another style tidbit: If you're searching for a new pair of glasses frames, Warby Parker is selling a pair of Waldo-inspired frames that will have you standing out in the crowd. Did we mention they're under $100? I spy a deal.

    10. Beat the Heat! It has been a scorching month thus far. What to do about the August heat? Make popsicles of course! Here are ten delicious and creative DIY Popsicle flavors that you can make without having to venture out into the heat!
