When I was getting ready to write this post, I couldn’t believe the week was nearly over. The photo below…. I can’t stop laughing. Garrett snapped it candidly at lunch while we were in Tampa. I was going through photos from the trip and honestly almost fell over from laughing so hard. This is definitely a face I make like 300 times a day. Probably why the smirk emoji (which I nicknamed side eye Sal) is one of my favorites…
And you know what? This face is just about exactly how I feel about this week. I was actually pretty overwhelmed getting back from vacation. So. Much. To. Do. I mean, I felt like I couldn’t get my head above water, let alone float and swim ashore! Yet, I took it one day at a time, one hour at a time. (Tuesday was rough….) But! I did it! My inbox is almost clear, I got some important phone calls and meetings checked off, got my butt back into yoga classes, and plowed through a few big items off my list. Feels good to be going into Friday with some hard work behind me and clearish
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // The Non-Professional Photographer’s Guide to Portraits
So this may be super creepy, but I love being friends with readers on Facebook. It’s awesome to be able to get to “know” everyone a little bitter and see what you’re up to. I click around a lot and I’m always blown away by how talented and passionate everyone is. Liv is one of those people! I’ve been stalking her blog for a while now, checking in whenever she posts an update on Facebook… I love it! She recently posted her stunning portrait work and some tips on how to photograph killer portraits. I’m so impressed and wish I had an ounce of her talent.
TWO // Third Wheel Instagram
This has to be one of the funniest Instagram accounts ever. I think everyone has had a third-wheel moment at least once. It’s kind of pathetic, kind of awkward, kind of funny. This guy Peter certainly captures that pathetic-awkward-funny tension perfectly in his Instagrams.
THREE // Dog Shelter Photo Booth
The Humane Society of Utah recently used a photo booth to take sweet photos of the pups to help them get adopted. I think it was a brilliant idea; the results are so stinking cute. I think I fell in love with all the dogs. The personalities are captured in such a candid way that you can’t help by smile!
FOUR // 7 Airbnb Rejections
Brian Chesky, co-founder of Airbnb, recently released four rejection letters from prominent investors when they were looking for funding for their new startup. Of course, we all know how amazing Airbnb is and what kind of offer these investors passed. So next time you get a rejection… don’t forget that it doesn’t mean you won’t be successful or that you’re not worth it. You will be and you very much are!
FIVE // Baby Seals Playing
Is it really even an On My Radar post without a video of cute animals?! This might take the cake in terms of cuteness. Seriously, off the charts cute! I kind of just want to watch the video on loop.
