This was a great week. I squeezed in as much as I possibly could, including a few yoga classes and a tennis lesson. One of the highlights of the week though was getting to meet Alli Webb, the founder of DryBar!!! She just wrote a book detailing how to get perfect blowouts at home and let me say, it’s amazing. The photos are gorgeous, and the step-by-steps are easy to follow. I’ve been trying to perfect doing my hair for years so I am sure I will be picking up a lot of tips from the book.
And, you know, it felt like I haven’t traveled enough the past few weeks, so I’m heading to Boston this weekend for the Head of the Charles. Victoria is racing with the Georgetown alumni boat and I’m excited to catch up with my friends who live there! HOCR is one of my favorite races and it’s way more fun to go as a spectator (in my opinion!!). If you’re going to be there and see me, definitely say hi!
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
ONE // The Plaid Shirt
I know I already blogged about this shirt this week, but I had to share it again in case you missed it. My favorite plaid shirt is available again! It’s the perfect plaid and works for fall through the holidays. It’s also one of those great pieces in your closet that can be dressed up and down and matches with black and navy (a rarity).
TWO // Surprising Teachers
Here’s a huge warning for this one… Do not watch at work. You will ugly cry so hard– at least I did. I was downright bawling throughout this whole video. Teachers are THE BEST, and we should let them know more often!!!
THREE // National Geographic on Facebook
I’d like to nominate National Geographic for best content on Facebook. These videos. It’s the next best thing to going to an IMAX movie! I was mesmerized by these cactus flowers. Hard to believe it’s real life.
FOUR // The Cutest Nantucket Hotel
Need. To. Go. Here. How perfect does Greydon House, a new Nantucket hotel, look? Seriously, every detail was taken care of. Those showers, though. Talk about interior design inspiration. (Wondering if I could just live there permanently?)
FIVE // Mont Saint-Michel
Speaking of travel goals, Mont Saint-Michel has officially been added to my travel bucket list. It’s such an interesting little island!
Neiman Marcus puts together fantasy gifts for the holidays every year. They’re always over the top, absolutely absurd, but also freaking cool. This year, they teamed up with Lilly Pulitzer to make the CUTEST Island Cars. The hardest question here: pink or green?!
SEVEN // “Big Little Lies” Trailer
Big Little Lies was one of my favorite books that I read last year. When I heard they were turning it into an HBO series, I could hardly wait. The official trailer was just released, and now I’m even more excited. It looks so good!
Anything great on your radar this week?
