On My Radar

Yay yay yay yay! I'm going to be at the beach for an entire week with my family in Florida starting tomorrow and I simply cannot wait. It's going to be the best. But, just as a heads up, I think things might get a little quiet around here! I've never missed a day of posting for years (since about April of 2010!), but I feel like this might actually be a week where I take a legitimate break. That's the plan, so we'll see how it goes.

This week has been kind of a blur... just flying right on by! In a good way. Normally that final stretch between you and vacation takes forever, but it really feels like I blinked and now I'm dreading having to pack everything up. And Teddy is excited because he's staying with my favorite neighbors in Tampa while we're at the beach. 24/7 playtime with the most adorable and energetic girls on the block? I imagine that he will be having the time of his life. (No, but seriously... he loves them.) The real question here is how I will deal about being apart from him for a week!!

Anyway, onto some of the amazing things from the internet this week. Have I mentioned before how these are absolutely turning into my favorite posts?

I was searching the other day for outfit inspiration... and I tend to love crewcuts outfits (true story). While looking through pages upon pages of Google images, I saw the cutest illustration. Consider me officially obsessed with Erisha, the artist behind the blog A Thing Created.

A few people that I love made Time's list and I definitely was introduced to a ton of new people and companies. Need a boost of inspiration? Look no further. Rarely am I impressed by everyone on a list (Don't you think that sometimes other publications' lists are..... scams?) TIME did a great job with this one. PS So proud of Tammy Tibbetts! 

WOW. Just wow!!!! These are so real they're unreal. No words. You have to check these out!

Moda Operandi had a trunk show with vintage Rolex watches. While the trunk show has since ended, the watches are gorgeous and just a lot of fun to look at (and add to those #wildwishlists). I mean, they're just beautiful. 

FIVE // Apple's Holiday Ad

If you haven't seen this already, you must watch it. And if you have watch it, I suggest a second (or third) viewing. I've watched it a handful of times and every time I get a little bit choked up. Apple absolutely, hands down NAILED IT.

What's on your radar this week? Any fun weekend plans?
