When it comes to Memorial Day weekend, food should be easy. Barbecues, picnics, food that transports to the beach and pool, and great finger foods. For a ‘que in the ‘hood, these roasted potato wedges sprinkled with rosemary and parm are the best accompaniment. Instead of heating up the entire oven — or taking up valuable grill space — consider using a smaller convection toaster oven like this Frigidaire.
I’ve always been a toaster oven kind of girl because I like one countertop appliance that multi-tasks: toasts, bakes, roasts, customizes for cookies and pizzas, you name it, and it pre-heats way faster than my huge-o regular oven. The quality on this one is awesome, and it can fit six slices of bread at once, a 12″ pizza and even a 13×9 pan (perfect for casserole time). My regular oven is getting ready to retire. I digress… check out this yummy recipe! Happy weekend, TAGG’ers.
2 potatoes (modify based on needs)
2 Tbsp. oil
seasonings, to taste: minced garlic, salt, black pepper

Ladies: this weekend I’m so ready for some sun, relaxation and… sales! Before share TAGG’s favorites, can we talk about this girl’s gorgeous factor? She epitomizes my “casual chic” vibe with the baseball tee and jeans, but see how her ponytail is perfect, she went for the bold lip and cool shades? Makes all the diff. Ok, now here it is… TAGG’s three must-visit sales this weekend:
Nordstrom // do not miss this sale. I repeat do not. Nordstrom kills it with this sale because you can score great buys on quality pieces. I purchased this and this for me yesterday, and my little girl doesn’t know yet that she scored a pair these cute new sneaks. PS: This tote, and this skirt (perf for work)? Need it.
J. Crew // hook it up now at J. Crew by getting $30 off $150, $50 off $200 or $75 off $250 in stores & online using code SHOPNOW through May 26. Plus get shipping and free returns on all orders (free on $175+). Love summer classics like this, this and this (I have these in white, green and pink!)!
Shopbop // they’re sale is happening and I dig it! How great is this Parker dress, or this (add a belt, and then mix flats with wedges to change up the look!), or this perfect flip flop?
Ok, lots more sales than this, like Gap (40% off select items, C. Wonder (extra 50% off sale, code: SALE50), and ASOS (20% off everything, code TAKE20), but this gal has to get at least a little work done today!
With just the right touch, a white space can be breezy, beautiful, classic and… not-at-all hospital sterile feeling. Whether it’s adding punches of color, a black on white scheme, touches of soft grey or using expansive windows to let the natural beauty around you come in, white is equally as cozy and warm as a place filled with dark woods and other richer tones.
Worried that white is not for you? As someone with lots of white in my home, including a cream leather couch I promise it’s easy to clean, and enables you to create any backdrop. You don’t have to go as stark white as some of the image below, but use them as inspiration, pin and refer to them when creating your own open and inviting home. Remember, beige can be boring, white makes an impact.

While working girl wardrobes can widely vary based on job, if you’re in an office or professional setting, adding an amazingly fitting pair of black pants, chic black patent leather heels or wedges, and the perfect, luxe camel bag to your wardrobe will make a monumental difference. Even if you’re a girl who craves color and vibrancy, consider these essentials as classic pieces that you can remix time and time again, and no one will be the wiser. Wondering why TAGG recommends camel over black when it comes to a bag? Camel accessories pair way better everything: from black essentials (black dress, trousers + blouse) to florals, prints and springy items, where black often looks too harsh and out-of-place with the later.
