Today kicks off the long-awaited Memorial Day weekend, and here in Chicago, that means the start of summer.

Here are a few more of our Favorite Finds to warm up to on this Friday before Memorial Day:
- Crayola found itself asking consumers not to use its products this week. It was a smart preemptive strike though, considering beauty bloggers have been recommending women “blunt” Crayola’s colored pencils and use them to apply eyeliner. #notsafe

Enjoy the weekend!
