Weekend Edition

1. Dream Destination: Cinque Terre

Your wildest Italian vacation dreams will come true by visiting the Cinque Terre. The unbelievable scenery, fresh salty air and aromas of pasta and garlic are enough to bring you in, but the crystal blue waters and freshly-baked focaccia will make you want to stay forever. [Swirled]

2. Workout of the Week: Sculpt Those Shoulders

Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strengthen those shoulders (you know, for those LBD or off-the-shoulder sweater occasions). You can do it by using just your body weight with a downward dog push-up. Get into a downward dog position, bend your elbows to lower the crown of your head toward the floor and then push back up. [Swirled]

3. What to Watch: “RBG”

At 85 years old, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become a cultural icon with a rock-solid legacy. How much do you know about the decades-long journey that got her where she is today? This intimate documentary showcases the life and career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and the historical moments in which she participated that shaped the nation. [In Theaters Now]

4. What to Read: “Can Mark Zuckerberg Fix Facebook Before It Breaks Democracy?”

In this intense profile of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, The New Yorker chronicles the story of Facebook’s success and the scrutiny the social media giant faces. The New Yorker paints Zuckerberg’s struggle to maintain the security of the mega-company, as well as the privacy of his own life and what Facebook’s future could mean for the security of millions.

5.  App Of The Week: Paribus

Paribus will get you money back on things you already bought. The financial app by Capital One tracks your online purchases. As soon as the price drops on something you already purchased, it will contact the retailer and get you that money back in your bank account. [Swirled]

6. R&R: Olive Oil Hair Mask

Staying in just got a lot more luxe. If you want to give your hair the royal treatment, mix some extra virgin olive oil with honey for a de-frizzing mask, or combine the oil with coconut oil for deep hydration. [Swirled]

7. What to Eat: Linguine With Clams And Mussels

It’s the freakin’ weekend! What better way to celebrate than with a big steamy pot of linguine, clams and mussels? By cooking linguine until it’s al dente, swirling together a decadent, buttery white wine sauce and steaming shellfish, you’ve got yourself a true weekend feast. [Swirled]

8. What to Drink: Apple Butter Old Fashioned

It’s officially time to get cozied up with an apple butter old fashioned in hand. Combine apple cider, apple butter, bourbon, lemon juice and orange bitters for a drink that screams, “Let’s pick some apples!” [Half Baked Harvest]

Place your tongue on the roof of your mouth while doing sit-ups to avoid straining your neck.
