Our summer favorites
Besides formally declaring Love Island UK as the hottest show of the season (well... the year really), we’ve been adding more and more to our “must-try” list this summer. From favorite albums on repeat to #lit drink combos on a blazing Brooklyn day, our people at MAS have been tirelessly trying random things they've found on the internet just for you (you’re welcome). Enjoy!
A THING TO RELISH IN
YO IT'S WILD HOT OUTSIDE. And living in an apartment in Brooklyn, I'm NOT trying to turn on the stove. That's why we've been loving the Herby Salad recipe. Incredibly modifiable but basically all you gotta do is chop up all the herbs you can find to elevate any salad. It's definitely the dish of the summer (non-delivery edition).
- Garrett Brooks, Creative Director
THINGS PEOPLE SHOULD BE PUTTING ON
I love sunglasses from Heywear – they have a cute collection! Oh and Resting Beach Face SPF30 Sunscreen Serum - because the name is funny and taking care of your skin is cool!
- Anna Kiser, Executive Producer
THINGS YOU SHOULD INDULGE IN
OYSTERS, Spicy Palomas, One shoulder tops, West World - Season 4, Blown Away - Season 3, Rooftop Sunsets, Colorful & bright Shorts w/fun patterns, Long hair - don't care, WORK LIFE BALANCE BABY.
- Megan Rhoden, Art Director
THINGS TO BINGE WATCH
My favorite thing at the moment is Nathan Fielders The Rehearsal. This show just released on HBO and I look forward to every Friday when I can watch a new episode. If you love awkward real life comedy that usually ends up pulling at your heartstrings then this is for you! Special shoutout also to The Bear on Hulu. If you haven't seen it I don't know what you've been doing.
- Zoe Benjamin, Sr. Coordinator
A THING TO LATHER IN
Go get Trader Joe’s Lemongrass Coconut Body Oil.
1) Because it smells delicious
2) Feels amazing post-shower and after a day out in the sun.
- Maya Smith, Jr Creative Strategist
A THING TO ADD TO YOUR WARDROBE
Vests! It's vest season, baby! Vests are fashionable, versatile, and an exciting new wardrobe addition.
- Rebeca Gasper, Production Resident
A THING TO BUMP ON YOUR SPEAKER
Anthem: "It's About Damn Time" slash anything from Lizzo's Special album - gives you alllll the vibes. Just makes you want to dance (s/o to TikTok), her attitude is goals, and I love all that she, and this album, stands for (but also Bey's album just dropped...).
- Alex Aviv, Sr. Creative Strategist
THINGS TO MAKE YOUR FAVS
Anthem for the summer? Runner's High by Muna!! Go-to meal? Fish tacos with Radish Salsa. Drink I keep ordering? Always & forever an Iced Oat Milk Latte. The TV show everyone should be watching and talking about? Severance. YES, it as good as you have heard.
