Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend so far. Got any fun plans? I’m catching up with the girls over Sunday brunch and I can’t wait.
If you’re in the mood for some weekend reading, I’ve got you covered with my favourite links this week…
+ Watch: how to run away and join the circus. Talk about taking the leap!
+ Amy Krouse Rosenthal, the author of the popular Modern Love essay, “You May Want to Marry My Husband” died of ovarian cancer earlier this week. Reese Witherspoon shared a touching post on Instagram, complete with illustrations by the children’s book author.
+ This vanilla latte coffee scrub sounds amazing.
+ Loved this powerful and beautifully-written essay that Meghan wrote for Time Magazine: Periods, Potential, and the Path to Education.
+ Have you heard about the fashion search engine TAGWALK? A former assistant quit her job to create it! Here’s her story. “Van Houtte’s startup is designed to help the fashion industry track down looks with as much specificity as possible, from runway shows in Paris, Milan, London, and New York that occur twice a year. It’s like Google, but in Anna Wintour-speak.”
+ Diane von Furstenberg shares some of her greatest design inspirations in this short video.
+ What life as a human rights lawyer is really like. “We need those who will work to amend, change, or even break laws if need be, all in the service of protecting our fundamental right to a life of equality, freedom, and dignity. Being a human rights lawyer is one such way.”
+ Photographer captures ballerinas in this stunning underwater photo series.
+ Whipping up this creamy raspberry protein smoothie this weekend.
