Happy Weekend + Links I Love

screen grabHappy weekend, friends. Got any exciting weekend plans? Last night, I caught the world premiere of the family drama/heist thriller, The Forger (John Travolta, Tye Sheridan, Christopher Plummer, Abigail Spencer). I love attending TIFF premieres as the cast introduces the film and it’s always a treat to watch along with them.

Fall weather is definitely around the bend. Last night, we got a taste of what’s to come and I had to bundle up in a chunky knit sweater, scarf and fall jacket. If you’re laying low this weekend, here’s a roundup of links worth checking out…

+ Must-read: I really enjoyed reading this profile on Viola Davis. She landed the starring role, a criminal law professor in the upcoming series, “How to Get Away with Murder” which debuts on September 25 on ABC.

+ Caitlin Cronenberg captured the most exquisite portraits of stars at The Toronto International Film Festival. And if you still want more, check out these beautiful portraits shot by Justin Bishop for Vanity Fair.

+ Chriselle gives us a rundown of how she minimizes her stress in the mornings.

+ Fashion month’s first lap has ended and there’s a lot to digest. Standout collections: Alexander Wang’s ode to sneakers and Ralph Lauren’s romantic safari.

+ Perspiration inspiration: Runway beauty looks at Alexander Wang and Creatures of the Wind were inspired by sweaty, glowing faces and slick, “I just worked out” hair.

+ Style on the streets: Denim on denim and model off duty style.

+ The simple life: Living in a dumpster was the best move this University professor ever made.

+ I swear I could eat these Baked Chicken Nuggets all day, everyday. Oh, and while I am at it, these Honey Mustard Fried Chicken Sliders.

+ Layered love: Tres leches trifle with macerated strawberries. The perfect way to hold onto summer just a wee bit longer.

+ Girl power: This career profile on Associate Real Estate Broker Christian Ross is pretty inspiring.

+ TED Talk for your weekend: I am the son of a terrorist. Here’s how I chose peace. I found this talk to be incredibly eye-opening and moving. A valuable lesson in empathy.

Hope you enjoy your weekend!
