Bits & Pieces

Morn!

Will winter make up its mind already? Yesterday was -30 here in Toronto and today it’s going up to +5. This yo-yo weather is messing with my wardrobe. Also, WHERE IS THAT PLANE? Fuck that’s weird. I can’t even imagine what the families are going through. Hopefully this weekend brings some answers.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Here are some bits and pieces that made my week.

  • Keeping hydrangeas alive longer. Also, GET HERE FASTER, SPRING!
  • Interesting read: ‘How One Mother Mistakenly Hoped a Year in Paris Would Transform Her Sons.’ Spoiler alert: it didn’t.
  • 73 questions with SJP.
  • Why Juan Pablo sucked as The Bachelor (and as a person). If you missed my recap of the finale, check it out here.

Happy Friday!

CAN WINTER JUST END ALREADY? Seriously. I love winter (I do! I swear!), but I’m so ready to be done with frozen toes and brutal wind. Hope you and yours have a fun (and cozy) weekend.

Here are some bits and pieces that made my week:

  • The Grid asked Toronto photographers to stop at 5:47 pm and photograph what was in front of them. What resulted were some amazing photos that capture the diversity and beauty of this city I’m proud to call home.
  • I want to eat this forever.

Happy Merry Friday before Christmas or whatever!

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season, celebrating with family and friends and eating an ass ton of turkey and chocolate. See you on the flip side in 2014 (holy crap!).

Here are some bits and pieces that made my week:

  • This French cafe charges extra for (customer) rudeness.
  • This got me right in the cuterus.
  • The most memorable Chrismukkah moments from the O.C. ♥

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…..

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.

  • 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.
