Guest Post: Mary Keller of MK Graces

I've got a special post lined up for you today, folks!  I asked Mary Keller of MK Graces to share a few of her world famous strategies for "living better" (her motto and mission) and- much to my delight- she obliged.  I'm a big fan of her site, especially her flawless library (seriously, such brilliant picks).  For a constant stream of killer advice, fabulous inspiration and solid gold resources, follow Mary on Twitter @mkgraces. Thanks so much for the awesome post, MK!


Love
Pick a wine bar with an outdoor patio for your summer rendez-vous. Sport your favorite cotton dress, bring a date (your boyfriend or best friend will do) and toss your agenda out the window. If you're in New York, pop over to Gottino. They have delicious small plates, too!

Play
Oh, to have lived in the 20s! So chic. The grand parties, love affairs, and losses are the perfect distraction from reality tv drama... Pull out this classic summer tale and find a shady spot at the park.

Work
It's easy for summer spending to get out of control. Manage your finances on the go - on your way to happy hour or en route to the beach - using Mint.com's iphone app.

Home
Spruce up your dinner table with these floral plates from Anthropologie. The colors and pattern just scream summer! Add a pitcher of pink lemonade, a vase of dahlias, and you're set!

Beauty
I am obsessed with this Iomoi tote. Simple, classic, and navy... it will go with every summer frock and is big enough to hold your laptop or a beach towel.

Health
When I can't make it to Pinkberry, the Fage Greek Yogurt packs satisfy my sweet tooth. They're the perfect quick, healthy, and portable snack for summer.
