Happy Friday!! I’m enjoying another long weekend; we have a visitor (and two surprise visitors!) coming to celebrate Douglas’ 30th birthday. We’re headed out to the mountains to ring in his next decade with good food and fresh powder. It snowed a few inches overnight and we woke up to a blue sky Alberta winter wonderland. Cross your fingers for us that everyone’s flights are on time for us, it’s going to be a great weekend!
Here are a few noteworthy clips that I came across this week to launch you into the weekend. Enjoy!
- I made this gorgeous chocolate hazelnut (birthday) cake with vanilla hazelnut buttercream for us to indulge in this evening. Doug loves everything chocolate, happy birthday, Doug!
- Camille Styles interviewed 14 friends to share their favourite romantic gestures. It’s super sweet and perfect to get you in the mood for Valentines Day.
- Cup of Jo features Frances McDormand celebrating aging (as we all should) and wondering how our society came to resent the “maps” of our faces as we grow older. I love that and couldn’t agree more.
- This one’s been making the rounds and is really fun. High School Styles from 1969 from vintage LIFE Magazine.
Lastly, Miss Dior shot their latest short at one of our favourite places on earth, Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Natalie Portman makes a pretty whimsical runaway bride!
