If you’re anything like me, you’ve been racing home from work this week to plant yourself on the couch and eat ice cream cones while watching some of the most amazing athletes in the world. I’ve been obsessing over women’s gymnastics and both women’s and men’s swimming. Below are some of my other Olympic obsessions. I hope you enjoy and bon weekend!
These incredible Olympic flame cake cone treats from Stasty. I need that now. And a mucho creative take on the Olympic rings by Cody Hamilton.
I’m loving this miniaturized Lego-version of the London Aquatic Center by artist Gary Davis.
These food flags are pretty perfect if you’re hosting any Olympic viewing parties.
If you’re bored at work, send your cubicle-mates a hilarious Olympic-themed Someecard.
Other uses for Ryan Lochte’s ridiculous grill. And if you’re up for it, 10 reasons to dissuade you from finding him attractive.
And above is a hysterical montage showcasing Lochte’s inability to conduct a good interview.
If I had all the free time in the world and kids, I’d copy-cat this fun Olympic-themed Party.

Camo is so hot right now. Taking a lesson from the street style shots above, thy shalt:
1. Stick to one camo piece
2. Know that a camo jacket adds an unexpected element. I especially love the juxtaposition of supremely girly pieces like lace dresses and flowing peach skirts with the masculinity of camo.
3. Treat camo pants like a neutral and pair them with patterns for an interesting ensemble. If you decide to brave pairing different patterns with camo, here are some of my favorite combinations below. Just be sure to keep the rest of your ensemble relatively simple or you could get up looking super busy.
And here are some of my favorite pieces on the market right now:
1. MZ Wallace Camo Tote | 2. Topshop Jacket | 3. Herschel Backpack | 4. Topshop Camo Sweatshirt | 5. Current/Elliott Jeans | 6. Old Navy Long-Sleeved Tee | 7. Pointer A.F.D. Canvas shoe in Canvas Forest Cameo | 8. LL Bean Camo Bag

Crafterall is an Etsy shop that features beautiful hand-cut cardstock maps perfect for a birthday or wedding present. Marnie Karger, the woman behind the maps, can custom-create locations and colors based on your request.
