WILW {7.16.14}

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.

photoconsidering how often i wear my green one, i think i’m going back for this one next:

headbanda girl can never have too many headwraps. or is that boyfriends? well, whatever you love, it’s nice to collect them. 🙂

*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.

4673_4827_Weeping_Wall_Glacier_National_Park_mdi 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;

  1. You look beyond adorable in that headband – I, unfortunately, have a HUGE head, so I don’t like to call attention to it, even if the headbands are super cute haha. I love the link for the roads to drive! I’m always looking for cool new adventures like that (even though I don’t know when my next big adventure will be haha it’s good to bookmark). Wanderlust is a painful affliction, I tell ya. So many places, so little time. And I love your new work digs because of the natural light! Wherever I work HAS to have natural light or I can’t stand it. Beautiful!

  2. I agree with Lauren–you rock the headbank. I would look a fool. Like me in a snapback, just no. I’ve driven some harrowing roads (thank you, overnight camp in NC), so I’m not too keen on driving ones like that of Norway or Monte Carlo etc, but I do agree that they are gorgeous.
    Palm trees in New York? Dude, that is going to confuse the CRAP out of the seagulls and pigeons.

  3. Mulholland in Southern California. I used to burn through those canyon roads in my Mini Cooper when I lived out there. It was so much fun!

    I need more headbands in my life. Maybe an Urban Outfitters trip is in store for me this weekend. 🙂

    I also need more good movies in my life! Everything I’ve seen lately has been terrible!
