And now we are two. Our second birthday here at Dandelion Chandelier is August 1, and to mark the occasion, we’re sharing some of the top-performing posts in our short history. And also some posts that we’re just really proud of, or that were especially fun to write (and we hope, to read). We’ll be focusing on one topic per day for the next seven days, as we count down to our big day. Join the party! First up? Travel and Adventure.
How will you spend the longest day of 2018 (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least)? In some countries, the Midnight Sun will only set for a handful of hours, meaning that the celebrations will last all night (and day) long. It’s the official start of summer, so you may opt to spend it lounging by the pool. But if you’re feeling more curious and adventurous, the world awaits.
We’re not sure if we actually like rosé, or if we just like the idea of rosé. We only consume it in the most beautiful and serene places, under optimal weather conditions, so it’s kind of hard to say whether it’s the taste, the setting, or the mood that it evokes that makes us reach for this pretty pink libation. Think about it: where does the jet set drink rosé? In Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, St. Tropez, Marrakesh, and Croatia. At the yacht club; in Cabo San Lucas; in Provence.
It’s one of the best moments of the summer: The Fourth of July. Fireworks, ice cold beer, hot dogs and burgers, cotton candy and joy. Where should you spend it if you want to have a truly luxurious Independence Day? We think you have three options for this holiday: the seashore, the mountains, or a smaller American city where you can get around easily on foot. We’re steering away from places that are iconic and lovely but way too hot at this time of year (we’re looking at you, Savannah).
High above London grows a secret garden in the sky. There’s no better place to start a cold, wet day in the city. Or to begin a first visit. Or to end a jolly day in London Town. And best of all? Like so many of life’s luxuries, this one is free.
