Weekend Links

Friday, February 23, 2018

We made it to Friday - and that is worth celebrating! We had a welcome break with the Family Day long weekend and the weather was so beautiful! This Winter has been absolutely brutal so I really hope Spring sneaks in early (despite what Wiarton Willie had to say). 

Chamomile Lavender Latte!

1. Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir
This was probably one of the most exciting things to happen on Family Day. Tessa and Scott are truly Canada's sweethearts and the whole country (and even some other countries) were rooting for them to take the gold in ice dancing. I was way too nervous to watch the event live, so I kept checking Twitter to see if they had won - and I was so happy they did. Figure skating is one of those sports where the scoring isn't really clear or well understood, but what I do know is Tessa and Scott skated their hearts out and told two beautiful stories. What a way to end two decades of partnership!

2. Weekend Projects
I have been a huge fan of Apartment Therapy for years, and my favourite content on their website is the Weekend Project series. Every Friday, an e-mail is sent out with a small home improvement project. As we move into Spring, these projects are a fun and easy way to ease into Spring cleaning!

3. Stella Bow Heels
I've given up shopping for Lent - but I absolutely love these shoes. I hope they're still around after Easter!

4. Florida Teens
I have so much respect and admiration for the teens in Florida working hard to fight gun violence. Regardless of where you identify politically, I'm sure we can all agree that schools should be safe for all students at all times - and these teens are doing heavy lifting to make sure that happens. 

5. Black kids watching Black Panther
I saw Black Panther on Monday and it was incredible! This is the first Marvel movie with a Black superhero as the lead - which is honestly long overdue. I think it's so important for people of colour to see themselves and their culture represented well in film! The pictures are so touching and I was a little emotional scrolling through the post!
