Bits & Pieces

Hiya,

Um…how is it already August? This summer is flying by. Hope you have a great weekend!

Here are some bits and pieces that made my week.

  • Honestly the first time I watched this video I didn’t even notice that it was a spoof. Take a close look at the men in the video. Recognize anyone from The Office / Arrested Development / SNL? Ha.
  • Can you guess a city based on its Starbucks locations? I can’t. Apparently.
  • I could watch Nicole Richie all night long (get it?). I am obsessed with her series of Candidly Nicole videos on AOL. This one is my new favourite.
  • …and as for that ‘negging‘ reference…..

Bits & Pieces

Hello long weekend!

This week was a bit of a whirlwind. I was playing catch-up at work after a very busy but still relaxing week off, I got to hang out with my friend K who’s been living in Tanzania (!) for a few years, I went to Edgefest on Wednesday (yes, it still exists!), and I attended two separate beer events in Toronto (Toronto’s Festival of Beer on Sunday and the Hart House Craft Beer Festival on Thursday). Lovely.

Here are some bits and pieces that made my week.

  • NYC’s least aggressive fight. Ever.
  • This might be my favourite thing ever on youtube. Seriously. Well played, The Onion.
  • Your new favourite Ben & Jerry flavour.
  • This realy…erm….hit the nail on the head.

Yay to long weekends, right? Tomorrow I’m attending a good friend’s baby shower. I’ve been hunting all week for a card that says HOLY SHIT YOU’RE HAVING A BABY THAT’S SO TERRIFYING/AWESOME but, alas, one does not exist. Fingers crossed for good weather on Sunday and Monday so I can justify heading to the park with a book and some purse beers!

I hope you have an amazing weekend.

Here are some bits and pieces that made my week.

  • Another hilariously random post from The Bloggess.
  • This made me laugh the hardest this week.

Yo. It’s Friday. These are some bits and pieces that made my week. That is all.

  • This made its rounds over the www this week, but it’s really cute so just in case you didn’t see it…
  • It’s sad that this has to exist, but kind of great that it does.

Happy Friday friends!

I am so looking forward to this weekend. The weather is supposed to be lovely, with temperatures in the low 20s and I’m going to see one of my favourite bands – The Lumineers – tonight. Tomorrow is May the 4th (be with you) and Sunday is cinco de mayo. I’m going to eat so many tacos on Sunday it’s going to be out of control.

Here are some bits and pieces that made my week:

  • A song to kick off your weekend.
  • This was all over Facebook this week, and it totally guessed my age – 23! (cough*30*cough).
  • This shouldn’t have made me laugh as hard as it did, but whatever. Sometimes acid trips are just funny. (?)
  • The income linked to the happiest marriages. It may surprise you!

Photos from Fashion Art Toronto (F.A.T)

Last weekend, MM and I greatly enjoyed our front row perch at Fashion Art Toronto (F.A.T). Arts & Fashion Week on Friday and Saturday night. Billed as Toronto’s ‘alternative fashion week’, the 5-day event showcases fashion design, photography, installation and film.  Here are some photos I took of the runway shows. A particular standout for me was the clothing by Pact, who have a great story too.

Mission: Update my Spring/Summer Work Wardrobe

Mission: accomplished.

I’ve been looking to add some new pieces to my spring/summer work outfit rotation. Tired of cycling through the same 3 shirt dresses  and my go-to black-skirt-white-blouse-no-I’m-not-your-server get-up, I wanted to inject my warm weather work wardrobe with some structured lightweight jackets, bright summery dresses and tailored sleeveless blouses. Here’s what I picked up over the weekend.
