1. What To Eat: Greek Watermelon Feta Salad

We love savory watermelon recipes and a Greek salad + watermelon mashup hits the spot on a hot, summery night. Combine cubes of juicy watermelon with cherry tomatoes, diced cucumbers, Kalamata olives and feta. The salad is dressed with a vinaigrette made from olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon, honey basil, chives salt and pepper. Serve with charred pita and skewers of grilled shrimp for a summer Mediterranean feast. [Half Baked Harvest]

2. Life Hack Of The Day: Watering Can Edition

Upcycle an old milk or juice jug into a watering can. Carefully poke holes through the cap and water all those gorgeous summer flowers!

3. Workout Of The Week: Bird Dog

This core exercise will challenge your stability while working your abs, back, butt and hips. To begin the exercise, get on all fours. Keep your back and pelvis stable and your core engaged while you reach your right arm forward and your left leg back simultaneously. Slowly bring your right elbow to touch your left knee. Pause a few seconds and return to the starting position. This is one rep. For best results, do 10 reps before switching sides and repeating. [Swirled]

4. R&R: Lavender Face Mist

A lavender-infused face mist takes 3 ingredients and about 10 minutes to put together. Pour boiling water over lavender buds; cover and steep for 15 minutes. Strain and discard the lavender, let the water come to room temperature and mix with then mix a teaspoon if cider vinegar. Pour the toner into a spray bottle and use on clean skin, after washing and before moisturizing, or for a mid-day pick-me-up. To make ahead: Store in a cool, dry place for up to 3 months.
