what i’m lovin’ this Wednesday:
*headbands. the higher the humidity, the worse my wavythick hair looks, and the more i love my ever-growing headband collection. i’m really not into doing my hair at all, so fun headbands are some of my fave summer accessories.
Urban Outfitters has some great ones out right now, if you’re on the hunt. the Bella Super-Wide Headwrap is my newest fave and comes in a variety of fun colors.
*Begin Again. i rarely go to the movies. i always enjoy it when i do, but i just never make the time to go. but every now and then, a movie comes out that i feel absolutely compelled to see immediately — and that’s what happened with Begin Again, which i saw last night. i knew from one trailer that this was my type of movie: indie, music-themed, NYC-set. boom.
it.was.phenomenal. Mark Ruffalo was outstanding, and i thought Keira Knightley was perfect in her role as well. everything about it was right up my alley: it had an indie life/bohemian vibe and was set all over NYC, and revolved completely around their shared passion for how music shaped the core of their lives. loved the story, loved the cast (minus Adam Levine, who i normally can’t get enough of — he was def the weak link here, to be expected), loved the dialogue, loved the music. loved loved loved.
*new (work) digs. we’re upgrading our offices to the World Financial Center/Brookfield Place right on the Hudson River in lower Manhattan, and i’m stoked for this change of scenery. views of the water and a brand new office space in a muuuuuuch nicer building, which has stores and food courts and restaurants and bars and all that jazz? oh, and palm trees?? yes please.
*travel. this sweet article names 20 Roads You Should Drive in your Lifetime and definitely serves as my Wednesday dose of wanderlust. such cool shots of sick roads all over the world.
how crazy is the Trollstigen road in Norway?! insane.
love the view from the Great Ocean Road in Australia, too. i probably need to go here.
i think some of the coolest roads i’ve traveled have been the Going to the Sun Road at Glacier National Park in Montana, which is super steep and windy and makes it appear as though you’re driving straight up into the sky at parts,
and boasts a reallllly cool section of natural waterfalls called the Weeping Wall.
i went to Glacier National Park with my family when i was 14 and absolutely loved it — such spectacular, raw beauty — and i’d loooove to return now as an adult and have a renewed appreciation for this majestic place.
*inspiration: for running;
for finding ourselves;
for finding those simple, beautiful moments of unbridled joy in our everyday lives.
What are YOU loving this week?
Anyone seen any fab movies?
