The Weekend Edit Vol. 5


Hey there! Another Sunday, another Weekend Edit. This week was rather chill at work, which translated into catching up on hoards of paper work. Not the most exciting task, but I guess that's what the summer months are for.
Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous out in the country, and my dad helped me get our catamaran into the water for the summer. There's something really peaceful about sailing, and I'm looking forward to more windy weekends this summer. I followed up too many hours in the sun with a good drink on the deck, and today it's looking rather gloomy so not too much going on. So here are some cool things I found on the internet this week.

Summer sales are in full swing, and I managed to snag this silk blazer for a bargain at Aritzia. I'd been looking for a peach colored blazer for a while, and this one is oh so heavenly. I've also got my eye on a couple things in both the J. Crew and Madewell sales, but we'll see.

Chriselle released an amazing video in partnership with Estee Lauder this week. I'd never considered using a serum as a "top coat" for makeup to add some glow.

I'm hoping to start featuring some more fashion-related content here, as it is something I'm passionate about, and this post on the state of fashion blogging was really interesting. My favourite fashion blogs are always those that feature affordable fashion, but with distinct and unique style.

One of my favourite posts from this week came from Alex from To Vogue or Bust with her Weekend Packing List. I'm definitely consulting this for my next weekend away.

Also on the travel front, this site features everything you need to do, from a place to stay down to where to get pre-dinner cocktails, for 12 hours in a city. I usually have very little time to myself when I travel for work, so I'll probably be consulting this next time!

And so after all of that, I've got major wanderlust. In case you missed it, this week I talked about what I have in my carry on for a long haul flight, and also some travel makeup tips.

Finally, something completely unrelated to anything above: my inner microbiologist was overjoyed when I came across this piece this week. Ebola fascinates me and I think it's one of the coolest bugs around, and when I was in school that's what I wanted to study. A really good read!

What did you get up to this week?



  1. I love the article 'Something is Rotten in the State of Fashion Blogging.' I first came across is awhile ago, before I even started blogging myself, and it totally opened my eyes to the commercialization of fashion blogging - specifically my favourite fashion blogs at the time. Now, I tend to gravitate towards honest blogs where not every post is sponsored or a giveaway. Such a great read.

    Also, I'm excited for this fashion related content! I absolutely loved the travels essentials posts and am looking forward to more!

    1. Thanks Joelle! I had always planned to have fashion content, but the lighting in my place is somewhat dodgy, and I don't have anyone that can regularly take photos for me. Working on it though! Thanks for being so supportive since the start! :)

    2. Same to you! We Noobs gotta support one another ;)

  2. I love Estee Lauder products, they really make my makeup routine better. And I love that photo, its gorgeous!

    1. Have you tried the serum Laura? I'd love to know what your favourite Estee Lauder products are. :)
