Our heated Diaries
Can I tell you guys a sort of embarrassing secret? Summer is my least favorite season.

So, below are 1o things you can do in air conditioning while also complaining about how tired and cranky this weather makes you feel. You’re welcome. —claire
+ Itching to own the single-subject, pamphlet-style cookbooks from Short Stack Editions. That cover art!
+ Sweating Tavi Gevinson’s Q&A with Emma Watson for Rookie. God, they’re both so likeable.
+ Logging a summer reading list with the help of this stellar Flavorpill guide to highbrow beach reads.
+ Buying some more Soapwalla deodorant—the best natural stuff on the planet. For serious.
+ Whipping up this Sicilian farro and tuna salad on the reg—a weeknight-meal home run (that works with quinoa or whatever other grain you have, too).
+ Discovering a spice in Mexico that rivals my love of Old Bay—Tajin. Sprinkle it on mangoes or pineapples with some lime.
+ Giving my nails a break from manicures for the summer, with the help of Nailtiques, a crazy-good protein strengthener.
+ Ordering hand rolls galore at Momo Sushi Shack—a delicious Japanese spot offering the Bushwick crowd a dining option besides fancy pizza.
