Wonder Woman has really hit it big with this movie! I am going to see it this week and I am absolutely ecstatic because all I have heard are good things. This review sums up the impact pretty well, highlighting just how incredible it is to have such a strong female super hero as a role model. Also, Wonder Woman’s theme song is such a powerful song that is sure to amp you up for any game, workout etc…

Jupiter fly by, this footage is beautiful. It is a compiled video of all the shots taken of Jupiter during spacecraft, Juno’s fly by of the planet. The footage is definitely out of this world. Although this is not really related at all this storm footage compilation is stunning and kind of mesmerizing.

The Antarctic Series is an amazing virtual reality created to show people a more personal look at what some of the harshest environments on the planet are like and to raise awareness of climate change. It is amazing! You can see penguins waddling around, what its like at the research station there, underwater ice caves and much more. I was so surprised at how incredible and interactive it is.

TerraCycle is a website/program that allows you to recycle almost anything. It is a great step in personally reducing your carbon footprint especially if your area does not have a recycling system or if you do not know where to take special items. Basically it allows you to recycle almost anything. It can be kind of expensive but the do partner with some brands to make those items free to recycle. I definitely recommend checking out their website.

Alex Honnold making climbing history. This may not sound very important but what he did was an incredible feat. He free soloed El Capitan in Yosemite which is one of the most iconic but difficult climbs in the world. He scaled a 3,000 foot rock wall with no ropes or assistance in under four hours.

Baby hippo taking a shower: This video is so cute! A friend showed it to be the other day and I just can’t get enough. The way she wiggles her ears is just adorable.

The Boring Company: This is basically a video of the owner of Tesla’s vision on how to minimize LA traffic. It is pretty cool and kind of futuristic (who knows though how far in the future!).

The Faces of Paris Fashion Week: Damien Florébert Cuypers’ sketches of Paris Fashion week are an inspiration for me this week!

The Travel Hack: This blog has existed for a long time however I was reading some of their posts this week and it just really inspired me to write more about my own travel adventures. I highly recommend checking them out!

Echo Look: I actually found out about Echo Look on The College Prepster and my mind was blown. It really reminds me of Clueless. Its Amazon’s new styling tool and it is incredible! I am really curious to see how it works in practice.

Here are my favorite finds from around the internet this week. They are pretty random but all of them really made me either smile, think or both. Enjoy!

A Tribute to Carrie Fisher: She seems like such a fun person. This video wonderfully captures her persona, highlighting her humorous side. It brought much joy to my day!

Instagram Dad (FOD): This dad and his kids are so cute! All of Instagram posts are hilarious pictures of him, his wife and four daughters. I really love how his portrayal of life feels so real with lots of joy and lots of struggle.

Edible Water Bottles: This is so cool! Basically it is water encased in a tasteless seaweed extract membrane to reduce plastic waste. I am not sure how I feel about eating one but I would definitely try it out! Also, supposedly they are even cheaper than producing plastic water bottles so it seems like it could be a really awesome way to reduce waste.

Woodpecker Hitches Ride Through Chicago: This is such a cute video of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker hitching a ride through the city on some guys car. The driver’s commentary just makes it so much greater as well!

Cute Goats: Goats just make my day so much brighter. They are funny and adorable, so I hope this brings you as much joy as it did to me!
