Monday Obsessions

Hey Guys

So I’ve been a little MIA from the blog lately. Sorry ’bout that, but I’ve just been too wrapped up with life!

First off, I just submitted my thesis proposal in which I am going to spend the next year looking at the strategic differences in content and target readerships of Vogue and Vogue.com—woohoo!

Second, I just started my super awesome internship at S/Style Magazine. As the editorial intern I’ve been conjuring up a few great stories for the website that I can’t wait to share with you.

Third, I’ve been traveling a bit. I went home to Vancouver for Mother’s Day weekend to surprise my mom for her birthday. I got to see my supercool pregnant sister looking fabulous with only a month to go! Super excited to be an Auntie again!

Also chopped my hair off when I went home and am loving the shorter style! It’s way easier to deal with and a whole lot healthier.

Fourth, I went to NYC to visit my BFF Ali. I didn’t think it was possible to fall more in love with New York than I already was—but yes, after this trip, I found out it’s indeed possible. Planning on heading down again in the next couple months, but I might not come back. I LOVE IT.

Anyways, I wanted to put together a little list of my favourite things this Monday!! Seriously, take a gander:

1.  It’s summer. Which also translates into patio season. Throw away you’re boring old G&T’s and make something that’s actually tasty. This is what I’m making this weekend:

2. Short hair. I can’t get enough! Thinking of going a little shorter like this gal’s hair below (also this dress rocks):

3. Recipe to Try: Truffle FriesSeriously, if anyone ever made these for me I would be VERY impressed.

4. The sweetest engagement photos EVER of Margo and Me blogger Jenny and her fiancé. So cute it makes me sick.

5. Loving this story: Health Guru Bonberi’s 5 Steps to a Healthy Summer. By the Coveteur. Everything from morning meditation to hydrating mixers—read up fellow [fashionable] health nuts.

6. Mindy Kaling in the Vogue Closet. Hilarious.

Have a good Monday everyone!
