Across the Internet Today

Across the Internet today – a bunch of links to stuff I’ve been spending a little too much time on recently. I’ve got a big, well-researched article coming out on Thursday, so I thought we could start the week with something a little lighter. Let me know what you think!

1. Ashlae and Thom’s crazy beautiful wedding photos, which they just published on Ashlae’s blog Oh, Ladycakes (one of my favourite food blogs, btw).

2. Master of None, Aziz Ansari’s new show on Netflix. Ever since watching his first few specials, I’ve been a huge fan. Already 7 episodes in.

3. Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl – the recently released memoir by Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney fame. Well written, all over the place in the best way possible, exhilarating and humbling to read at the same time. Highly recommend.

4. Beautiful Amsterdam apartment – my Mom and I are going to Europe over our March Break for a girls trip! We just booked our Airbnbs and are swooning over the terrace, view, bathtub of our apartment in Amsterdam…man, oh man.

5. The best turtleneck ever – Man Repeller featured my long-standing favourite J.Crew turtleneck, friend to hip teens (me, me!) and soccer moms alike. So many colours!! Perfect under t-shirts and evening gowns! The turtleneck: hide your hickies and showcase your sick layering skills with one slick garment! Versatile.

6. Oh She Glows’s Pumpkin Gingerbread Muffins – yes, the miniature gourds are about to abandon us in favour of wreaths and snow and pies and shit, but I will never abandon gourds. Or muffins, speaking of delicious things. So this recipe looks perfect. So crumbleh. So pumpkineh. Planning on making them tonight.

7. The Future of Fashion with Alexa Chung Series 1 – like many teenage girls before me, I worship at the altar that is Alexa Chung’s personal style. How does she manage to look good in rainboots and overalls?! I’d look like a small Irish farmhand named Jess going to milk some goats in the rolling hills of my grandfather’s farm or something. Anyway. Chung takes viewers through the fashion world from an insider’s point of view, exposing the challenges and diversity (or lack thereof) in a field often written off as frivolous or bitchy. I’ve seen every episode.

What have you been obsessing over lately?
