Friday Links: 4th of July Edition


4th of July

Tomorrow’s the 4th! I’ve rounded up a few links to help make your Independence Day weekend great.


4th of July traditions abound, from fireworks, to barbeque to lots of stars and stripes. As a born-and-raised Canadian, I still feel like I’m infringing on someone else’s holiday, but I always love all the traditions, and the extra day off sure is sweet. Here are a few links to help you have a fun 4th.

Safety first: Many communities are opting for laser shows in lieu of fireworks.

A pro-oriented tutorial on how to take great fireworks photos, plus some recommendations for us smartphone users.

Make things go boom with this fireworks app.

Is it me, or are all of J.Crew’s “looks we love” very patriotic right now? (news flash: I want everything.)

I can’t believe it was a year ago when I made these freedom headphones for DIYNetwork’s Made & Remade blog.

Another throwback to last year when Taylor Swift made Ina Garten’s Flag cake (and here’s the recipe).

I’m not really one for a Pinterest-style manicure with stars and stripes, but maybe I’ll wear this shade of 5-free nail polish on my nails and this one on my toes this weekend.

Have a great weekend! Happy fourth!
