On My Radar

See that dog’s face? That’s pretty much how I’m feeling now that it’s summer. Trips to the beach. Afternoon visits to the dog park. Late nights. I’m so down. Summer is my season.
There’s a bunch of great things that were on my radar this week!

Don’t read this if you haven’t watched The O.C. yet; there are tons of spoilers. (If you haven’t, you need to.) But if you have, I think you’ll find this interview with the creators of The O.C. fascinating. I had no idea the guy who created it was only 25 when he sold the idea!!! Also, Rachel Bilson (aka SUMMER) was supposed to only be a guest star?! What!!! Summer + Seth forever.
My whole family was hooked on the show. We started watching in the car on a portable DVD player (haha) on the drive down to the Keys and even my dad got sucked in. I think the four of us spent so many hours inside the condo watching “just one more episode” while on vacation!
This might be my favorite of the series so far. I’m such a huge Selena Gomez fan, and she seems like so much fun in the car with James Corden! When they drive through McDonald’s… I couldn’t handle it!
THREE // Screw Mastery

It’s never too late to pivot in your career and learn something new. In fact, it could be worthwhile to push yourself out of your comfort zone and do something you’re not good at. The author of this essay decides to quit her job and do something completely different, at 40.

FOUR // What College Recruiters Can Teach Your Child

This NY Times article is a must-read for everyone in high school. And parents, too.

FIVE // Broadway for Orlando “What the World Needs Now Is Love”

Try to watch this and not get goosebumps. I’m obsessed. Definitely worth downloading the song on iTunes as 100% of the proceeds will go to The Center Orlando. I have had the song stuck in my head for days. It’s just amazing.

SIX // Scalloped Button-Front Skirt

I practiced some self-restraint here and only bought this skirt in red. The minute I saw it I just fell in love– it looks so cute, and I can’t wait for it to come in the mail!

SEVEN // Nurse Performs CPR In Her Wedding Gown

I loved this story! A woman, who happens to be a nurse and happened to have just tied the knot, performed CPR while wearing her wedding gown. “I kind of forgot about the day’s activities and focused on saving this woman’s life.”

EIGHT // Amy Schumer and Anna Wintour Switch Places

This video for Vogue had me in tears from laughing. Anna Wintour is amazing in it and seriously hilarious. She really nails those mic drops!!!



Hope everyone has a great weekend!

xoxo

My sister and I got hooked on the OC on vacation too! We had taken a ski trip to Blue Mountain in Ontario and the equivalent of MTV there (MUCH music channel) was playing it starting from the beginning!
