Happy Weekend + Links I Love

study of pose

Happy Saturday and helloooo November! Do you have any fun plans? Are you dressing up this weekend? I am not big on Halloween, but the kid in me looks forward to the post-Halloween sales on all my favourite fun-size chocolates. It’s been gloomy all morning with below zero temps, so the plan is to finish reading this book so I can move on to this one.

A friendly reminder to turn your clocks back one hour before you hit the sheets tonight. How are you planning on spending those extra sixty minutes?

Whatever you’re up to this weekend, stay safe. If you’re staying indoors, here are a few of my favourite reads this week for you to click through…

+ Flipping out over Lauren Conrad’s Halloween costume.

+ No costume? No problem. Chriselle has got you covered with these last-minute decade inspired makeup looks.

+ Also, Lo shares her awesome skeleton makeup tutorial.

+ Strike a pose or 1,000: The Cut chatted with Coco Rocha about what it’s like to do 1,000 unique poses in 3 days.

+ Abigail Spencer’s TIFF diary on The TIG brought me back to the second most wonderful time of the year. Absolutely loved her in “The Forger” which premiered at the fest.

+ On Tuesday, Australia became the first developed country to impose a blanket visa ban on Ebola-stricken countries. The decision was met with backlash from health experts and rights advocates. “No evidence exists to support the effectiveness of travel bans as a protective measure.” WHO Director General Dr. Margaret Chan in an interview with Bloomberg News.

+ Canada has followed suit. On Friday, the government announced that it is immediately suspending entry visas for people from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa. “The precautionary measures announced today build on actions we have taken to protect the health and safety of Canadians here at home.” Citizen and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander on the government’s decision.

+ Photographer John Moore captures the emotions of Liberia’s Ebola survivors.

+ A foodie’s best friend: This Toronto-based startup offers a lending library for kitchen gadgets.

+ Everybody loves Toronto: This week, Vogue released its Guide to Toronto, Lonely Planet named it one of the top 10 cities to visit in 2015, and Tienlyn shared her favourite places to shop in the city.

Laugh out loud: What’s the worst e-mail you’ve accidentally sent?

Must read: In Defense of the Investment Coat. Because sometimes we need a bit of encouragement.
