On My Radar

Long gone (thank goodness) are the days of sleep deprivation and working around the clock. But for one reason or another, I don't think I was getting enough sleep the past two weeks. An hour here and an hour there really got to me. by Wednesday, I was in complete zombie mode. (I woke up to walk Teddy and then got back in bed and slept until 10am.) It took about eleven hours of emailing over two days and a couple of catch-ups with friends and a few long baths to get back to normal. But I finally feel myself again! Woo!

Note to self: don't let it get that bad again!

ONE // Entouriste 

I am in full-fledged wanderlust right now. This winter made me really antsy to get out of the city; it felt especially claustrophobic to me. Entouriste is THE ultimate travel blog. It's beautiful and the content is generated by the community so it feels extra special. I have it officially bookmarked as I dream of places to go. Even if you don't have any trips on the horizon, going through the site is kind of a journey in and of itself... Beautiful and inspiring along the way.

TWO // Dana Williams and Leighton Meester "Dreams" Cover

Okay, first. Let's get this out of the way first. Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen got married. I died. Anyway. Next to dying over Leighton and Adam's wedding, this cover is absolutely swoon-worthy. I've loved Leighton's singing since Country Strong (used to listen to the soundtrack with Little V four times a day in college). One day, I had this Youtube video on repeat and I don't regret a second of it.

THREE // Girl Meets World

I don't read People magazine, but I made an exception for this exclusive first peek at Girl Meets World. One of my favorite shows, of course, was Boys Meets World. It makes me so giddy and excited that they're revisiting the story... and using the original cast. PERFECTION. Also, you've got to watch this video if you're as into the spinoff as I am. #lifestoughgetahelmet

FOUR // Chateau de Gudanes

Australians bought this Chateau in the south of France and they're renovating and restoring it. And it's all being documented on their blog. While I'm supremely jealous they own a chateau the restoration process looks beyond intimidating. Major props to them, but I'd rather watch it unfold from across the pond on my computer. Yep. It's a huge undertaking, but watching the good/bad/ugly develop is really quite a beautiful thing. (Every time I click over to the blog, I think, "If these walls could talk...")

FIVE // "Let It Go" in 25 Languages

I can't stop with these "Let It Go" covers. Legitimately, cannot stop. I haven't even seen the movie, but I'm pretty sure I've seen every cover on Youtube by now. It's too catchy! I have to admit, I have a million favorites (#cantchoose), but this one is definitely up there. 25 languages? 25 amazing Disney cast members? World wide love for the song?! I mean... yes, please.

What's on your radar from this week? And please tell me I'm not the only one obsessed with "Let It Go"!


PS Amazing things planned this weekend... Can't wait to share! Follow along on Instagram!!!
Say Hello


  1. Carly, you aren't the only one obsessed with Let It Go! My 20mo old thinks it's the height of entertainment for me the blare this little ditty as loud as possible whilst I sing/scream it at the top of my lungs for him as we drive down the road... ah parenthood. Needless to say, I have developed a love for the song. :)

  2. AH thank you for the Entouriste link! I'm currently planning my summer vacation and have no idea where to go! So many great options and tips!

  17. Same boat as you- haven't seen Frozen yet, but am a HUGE "Let it Go" fan!! I belt it in the shower all the time. Check out other songs from the movie, too. I feel like you'd love "Love is an Open Door". It's too adorable!

  18. I LOVE that Dreams cover too. So pretty.
