Happy {Mother’s Day} Weekend + Links I Love


Happy Sunday all and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! I hope you’re soaking up the beautiful summer days. Yesterday, I really packed it all in there. The day started off with a much-needed acupuncture and massage session at Urban Wellness (Thanks Kandiss!), followed by a scrumptious lunch of Aussie meat pies and the most amazing salad I’ve ever had at Kanga and topped off with a relaxing sunset stroll along the boardwalk at Harbourfront.


If you’re in the mood to catch up on some reading, here’s the Internet in a nutshell…

+ Notable Toronto finds: Windup Bird Cafe in Harbord Village.

+ What Hollywood Can Teach Us About the Future of Work. “With the Hollywood model, ad hoc teams carry out projects that are large and complex, requiring many different people with complementary skills. The Hollywood model is now used to build bridges, design apps or start restaurants.”

+ A wine tour of a different kind: Inside the best-stocked wine cellar in Canada.

+ The Chinese Art of the Crowd. The Atlantic’s Alan Taylor shares a photo essay that plays tricks on your eyes.

+ 48 Hours in Istanbul with Meghan Markle.

+ Yummy eats: These Orange Blossom Pancakes with Vanilla Honey Cream & Berry Compote and Crispy Avocado Fries with Melty Cheese Dip.

+ Currently reading and can’t put down: Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend.
