Happy May, Marylanders! Spring is in full swing, and summer is right on the horizon. What could possibly be in store for the month ahead? Well, Madame Maryland looked into her crystal ball, and this is what she saw.
Who says you have to follow the current fashion trends? Maybe you'd rather dress like it's 2002 -- or 1978. Whatever era has your heart is the one you should go with! You've got what it takes to pull off the look of your dreams.
Whether you're a true grillmaster or a grill newbie, May is a great time to freshen up on your grill skills! Impress your friends by making something classic -- or something unique -- at your next BBQ. And don't forget the Old Bay!
Feeling inspired? Don't let that fire die out! Give yourself the time and space to get all of your artistic energy. Don't worry about whether it'll make you money or look professional; just enjoy the act of creating.
Does everything feel overwhelming right now? It's time to break things into more manageable tasks. If you focus on one bit at a time, you'll have an easier time getting it all done.
As summer heats up, so could your love life! If you're partnered, a new honeymoon phase might be on the horizon; if you're not, a new flame might be headed your way. Enjoy all of the thrills that come with these romantic adventures.
Saying no to someone you really care about can feel like torture, but more likely than not, it's bothering you more than it is them! If you really don't want to say yes, be compassionate but honest. Chances are, they'll totally understand.
Are you letting your head or your heart control your spending this month? Ideally, there will be a balance between the two, but if you're saying yes to too many fun things, it's time to reel it in. Prioritize how and when you'll treat yourself!
The perfect treat for the start of summertime? Ice cream, of course! Why not go out on a limb and try a flavor that's a little bit weird or wacky? If you're looking for a low-stakes way to add more excitement to your summer, this is it.
The warm weather is making you want to get out in the water! It's time to go for a swim, ride on a boat, or even head to the aquarium to meet some fishy friends. No matter what you opt for, it'll be a great way to stay cool as the days heat up.
When's the last time you went camping? Whether you're in your backyard or out in the woods, sleeping under the stars and making s'mores is a summer rite of passage. Grab some friends and plan a camping (or glamping) trip.
It's time to start your summer reading! What used to be a boring school assignment can now be a chance for you to dig way more into a topic you love. Invite some friends over for a book club, complete with snacks and drinks, and create your own curriculum.
Are you making time for other people in your life? Use this month to make some plans with someone you haven't seen in awhile -- someone who really deserves some quality time. They'll probably be thrilled with your invitation!
