The Weekend Edit Vol. 64


Happy weekend everyone! What has everyone been up to? Anyone watching the Oscars tonight? For the first time in several years, I've seen less than half of the nominees for Best Picture. What happened? I'm a movie buff: I love the classics, have my favourite directors (Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Rian Johnson and Wes Anderson (duh!)), and have usually seen the majority of nominated films, if not all. I guess I have some catching up to do on this snowy afternoon!

In other news, today is my birthday, and for the first time in, well, forever, I have absolutely no plans. And you know what? It feels great! I'm actually looking forward to coasting through the next couple of birthdays without any milestones. It seems like it's this great frenzy of having way too much to drink at 18, to becoming an "adult" at 21 (albeit a questionable one), to hitting that quarter century milestone at 25. Today, I'm 26 and I'm feeling...happy! I don't need a big celebration or to get dressed up to the nines (case in point, totally in sweatpants right now) to turn a year older. Let me bake my own cake and spend time with friends & family. Besides, it's a Sunday, and Sundays are for sleeping in, making fancy coffee, and staying in your pyjamas all day anyways ;). Am I right?

For those of you planning on having a lazy Sunday as well, I've rounded up some pretty awesome links this weekend. Check 'em out below!

I love a good capsule wardrobe, and the Everygirl has some great tips for creating your own.

Adele on Ellen was basically the best thing ever. How she kept her composure chomping on that wheatgrass...You go girl!

A piece on how we should buy less, but better. I've been trying to consciously think of this every time I make a purchase now.

Downton Abbey is over :(. In honour of the great Dowager Countess, here are her greatest zingers ;)

What are you up to this weekend? Will you be watching the Academy Awards tonight?


#MilkyJelly: Glossier's dreamy new launch


To say that Glossier made the perfect cleanser is an understatement. By a long shot. It's absolutely dreamy!

I've previously shared my love for Glossier here and here, and their new cleanser, Milky Jelly, is no exception. It's been a year in the making, and is based on the hundreds of comments from Into The Gloss readers. Keep reading for my full review!
