Writing this from Hilton Head! This is my first time here and I’m really looking forward to spending some time at the beach and disconnecting a little bit. I had to dig into my bathing suit drawer for the first time this year, which got me super excited for upcoming summer travel. I’m considering this an adult spring break 😂
I also had the chance to go to Pittsburgh for the first time. It was a super quick trip and I wish I had had more time to explore the city. But I was there for a kick off event for a year-long partnership I’m entering with Calia by Carrie Underwood. We got sneak peeks of the upcoming collections (so. cute.) and I got to catch up with a few of my blogger friends that I haven’t seen in years (Brighton, Jess, and Liz!).
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
ONE // J. Crew Saturday Shoes
When I saw these sneaks hit J. Crew’s website, I immediately ordered them. BUT, the very next day, J. Crew actually sent me a pair and, omg, they are adorable. They were very comfortable right out of the box, but then out of the blue I had a bit of a break in period. I think I’m going to take out the white insoles and replace them with Dr. Scholl’s inserts for even more comfort. Especially for a lot of walking, I think I need a bit more support. But I just can’t resist those stripes, right???
I, like most of the world I’m sure, was glued to the news about Notre Dame this week. I was relieved that, while the damage was significant, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. One story that stood out to me was how a late professor from Vassar’s research may play a role in the rebuilding of the cathedral. The vivid 3D scans are just incredible.
I read and watched this story with tears in my eyes. So inspiring to watch Micah Herndon crawl across the finish line of the Boston Marathon after his legs gave up. He was running in memory of three of his friends who lost their lives while serving in the Marines. I watched the interview he gave on the Today show and loved that he was shedding more light on veterans issues.
FOUR // AirPower Explanation
When I heard about AirPower (a power pad that would charge up to three Apple devices) I was pretty excited as I have an AppleWatch, AirPods, and an iPhone. But then they shut the project down right before it was supposed to hit shelves. I thought this video gave a great explanation of why this particular product didn’t make it to market.
I know I already mentioned the new Lion King movie on an On My Radar post a couple of months ago, but I couldn’t resist adding the new trailer in here again. It just looks so good and so well done!!! I know my fellow 90s kids readers will agree!
