Happy Friday, everyone! What’s on the agenda this weekend? It’s pretty hot and sticky here with the temperature currently sitting at 97F. Between TIFF, Cirque du Soleil, and the return of Tony Award winning musical Wicked, there’s lots to choose from this weekend. Get outside and enjoy the gorgeous weather while you still can. Oh, and don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen.
If you’re spending time online this weekend, here’s a bunch of great reads worth diving into…
+ Scene-stealer: Style.com continues to “see fashion first” with its brand spanking new website. With an emphasis on user-friendly navigation, an easy-to-scan news feed, and improved sharing tools, it’s a fashion lover’s dream.
+ Incredible New York Times piece on the multi-talented Alexander Wang.
+ Must read: Seat 21A: A window seat reminder of humanity. Let’s make a conscious effort to be kind to everyone we meet.
+ Sharing is caring: Chriselle’s special announcement video moved me to tears. She is so brave for sharing her story and sparking dialogue among women.
+ I love a really good infographic: The Great Wheel of Food Mash-ups.
+ Speaking of food mash-ups, I’m loving these California roll nachos. Quite possibly the best combo ever.
+ Warby Parker made a video to preview their Fall 2014 collection and it’s outta sight!
+ Let’s heal together: Have you heard about The Monument Quilt? This summer, the quilt traveled around the United States sharing the stories of survivors of rape and abuse and encouraging others to speak up. “By stitching our stories together, we are creating and demanding public space to heal”.
+ Empire State of Mind: Coco Rocha steals the street style show at New York Fashion Week. Loving the graphic bob.
+ TIFF madness has taken over the city. This TIFF 2014 survival guide covers everything – from what to pack in your trusty tote bag (wet wipes are a must) to where to grab the best grub before screenings.
+ I will be catching the red carpet premiere of this film at TIFF on Monday evening. Helloooo Channing Tatum.
