Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a great weekend filled with love, laughs, and maybe a few naps. This week for me is pretty busy as I have work every day but Wednesday, and a job interview today! Then this weekend there's a soccer game I'm going to, but I think I'm getting ahead of myself with talk of the weekend and it's only Monday. I have a lot of good stuff for this week's Must Haves, so we should get started.
This week the British Open is taking place in Scotland. Can I just tell you how beautiful the course is that the players are going to be taking on through the week? St. Andrew's is gorgeous and has been hosting the British Open 28 different times since 1873! Golf originated in Scotland, so it is only appropriate that the tournament be hosted in the country. But throughout the tournament's history the host course has changed 14 times and been played all over the United Kingdom!
If you've been on Twitter any time in the past few days you might have seen the hashtag #DontGoToSeaWorld trending. You can thank Harry Styles from One Direction for that. He, along with many others, are major proponents of the welfare of marine life, and animals in general. If you've seen the documentaries, "The Cove" or "Blackfish" you know what kind of treatment these animals are getting in captivity. I do believe it's okay to be able to learn about animals, but holding a whale in a bathtub sized tank isn't okay. That's where Dolphin Project steps in. They are on a mission to see all marine mammals released from captivity. They have done countless hours of research on places like Sea World and have valid points to back up their claims.

I'm kind of, okay, really obsessed with hats right now. Especially ones like this from TopShop.
It's just a simple black fedora with a wide, flat brim, but I think it would really pull together just about any outfit. It would go with a cute sundress and black short boots, jean and a tank top, shorts and a rolled up jazzy shirt. The options are really limitless.
I recently bought this Nars lip pencil set and I'm in love. First off the packaging is beautiful! Then the actual shades that come in the box are perfect. You get two Satin Lip Pencils and one Matte Lip Pencil. The satin colors are Yu, which is a bright pink, and the other is Luxembourg, which is more of a watermelon color. The matte color is limited edition called Provocative Red, which is like a dark wine stain color. I love that this purchase isn't just full of summer or spring colors, but has one color that can be worn well into fall and winter!
The first song that should pop into anyone's head when someone says The Eagles is this.
I've been obsessing over Pimm's this summer. I made a pitcher for Fourth of July weekend. It's my drink of choice at happy hour if the bar has everything for it. Why Pimm's? It's just so refreshing and sometimes you don't want wine or beer. Pimm's is that perfect medium. I make my Pimm's Cup with lemonade and let the fruit soak in it for a while before serving so there's more flavor, but there's really no wrong way to make a Pimm's. In fact, I think it's time for one now!
Well that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If you try anything on this list, or have something you think I should try let me know in the comments. Like this post if you're all about saving the dolphins.
