Any thing fun planned for this weekend?!
This was an extra fun week… my friend Julia came for a few days. It was a super last minute trip, but we both were pretty desperate for some friend time. A we’ve been having the best time. I had been invited to do a macaron class with Ladurée and it was extra special that her trip overlapped with the class. I’ll be sharing more on that soon!
On my radar this week…
ONE // Alaska Itinerary
Julia, her husband Thomas, Garrett, and I went to Alaska last May. (How has it already been a year?!) It was honestly the best trip I’ve ever gone on. So different than the typical vacation. Thomas and Julia are launching a new website dedicated to travel itineraries and guess which trip made the cut for the first itinerary!? Alaska! (Can you spot the hilarious photo of me?)
TWO // Kids Perform Hamilton
Pretty much the closest I’m going to get to seeing Hamilton is watching Youtube videos. Anyone else dying to get their hands on a ticket? I feel like I won’t be able to see it live in NYC until 2025. Until then, this is an incredible performance of “The Schuyler Sisters” by three young kids. They kill it!
I love Saoirse Ronan. Like, absolutely love her. I recently went to see Brooklyn and was just captivated by her performance. She’s beautiful and nothing short of perfection on screen. Plus, her accent is ah-mazing. I loved this video interview of her with Vanity Fair. (PS Saoirse has climbed to the top of my short list of my favorite names for girls.)
FOUR // Passport Express
When I was in middle and high school, I used to go to a lot of different conferences. Journalism, SADD, Youth in Government, you name it. The number of people I met throughout the years is insane. And we’re all kind of still Facebook friends, even though we met as young teens. One guy I met during a conference was Michael George. He is a ridiculously talented photographer and he recently shared the coolest photo series. Two weeks traveling across the country via train with a couple dozen artists. I’ve never wanted to road trip across the country more now!
FIVE // Nathan Kress Wedding Video
Remember iCarly? (Side note: I get tagged in no fewer than ten iCarly-related Instagrams a day… cracks me up.) Remember Carly’s trusty, nerdy guy friend Freddie? Nathan Kress, the actor who played Freddie, recently got married. The wedding video is truly one of the best I’ve ever seen. Doesn’t matter that I don’t know this person in real life, I was sobbing through it.
