What You Need to Know About Your COVID-19 Vaccine Card

COVID-19 Vaccine Card | On a High Note Vol 45

“It is estimated that 1 in 4 Americans are now fully vaccinated (!!), which means there are a lot of these vaccine cards out there. This HuffPost article breaks down everything you need to know about them — from where you should keep yours, how to get a replacement and if you should get yours laminated. Worth a scan!” — Kendall

How To Date Your Wardrobe 

How To Date Your Wardrobe | On a High Note Vol 45

“I met my friend Heather when she styled me for a big shoot several years back in New York–it was such a fun day, and she was so much fun to work with. I loved that she had a playful, inclusive, no-nonsense approach to personal styling–she didn’t focus on what was “in”–she focused on what made me feel confident and like myself, and what allowed my personality to shine through!

Fast forward years later, and she just released a book called “How to Date Your Wardrobe“! It’s a little pocket-sized, quick-read guide with practical and fun-to-read lessons about curating a wardrobe you love. I also love the cute little New Yorker-esque doodles! It would make the best little gift to yourself, a friend, a recent grad who is just starting to feel out their personal style, or anyone who could use a little confidence boost in the wardrobe department!” –Jess

A Really Good Thriller!

Books to Add to Your Summer Reading List

“It’s almost ‘lay in the sun and get lost in a good book’ season’ — if it’s not already where you are! There’s nothing better than finding a page-turner that you can’t put down! If you’re looking for some good reads, check out this Everygirl round-up of 20+ best thriller books.” — Kendall

@DesignMom on Instagram 

“Do you follow @DesignMom on Insta yet? If not, you absolutely will want to! She’s an American mom of six, living in France, and is currently renovating and restoring a stunning historic old home in Normandy. I absolutely love her style, her glimpses of living in France, but I also love how she isn’t afraid to speak her mind and share her opinions about things that matter in the world. I know you’ll love following her too!” –Jess
