Kick Off

Some notable reads, eye candy and tunes to kick off the busy week ahead:

1. Django Unchained. Watch it, if not for Tarantino + Western combo, then watch it for Leo.
2. Sanpshots of Berlin through the lens of In a Pavilion blog.
3. I confess, I'm secretly an introvert, scoring 17/23 from the list. I'm just an awkward cookie.
4. Do you also fancy the simple farm life? Molly Yeh will show you how it's done.
5. Discovered Hiline. Alternative, more valuable Nespresso capsules for my fellow espresso addicts.
6. "Stooped down and out, you got me beggin for thread to sew this hole up that you ripped in my head" - BANKS. She's a goddess, truly.
7. Think tequila boozy summer, think margarita, watermelon and popsicles. Think of this brilliant recipe. And if that's not enough, check #popsicleweek for 40 more variation.
8. Dreams change, sometimes we need the hustle, the freedom. Sometimes we need the structure or another creative environment. Whatever it is, it's important to continuously soul search for the path that feels right for you. Kate's story really resonated with me.
9. Danielle's #truthbombs are like the fortune without the annoying cookie, plus you can deliver it straight to your inbox. I enjoy reading them every morning.
10. Finally, this Wild Culture mix: "I’ll say I told you so but you just gonna cry. You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes" - Glass Animals

egg-on-top Umami-fries Umami-burger Burger crave all week. Umami Burger on Union Street, San Francisco. That truffle cheese and shiitake mushroom!

This weekend, my aunty from New Jersey is visiting, plus there are a number of events that friends are hosting to make the most out of whatever's left of this hot Canadian summer. They say keeping busy is good, but sometimes being busy can also be the worst form of distraction. So I'm back to list making in my moleskin at the start of each day and beginning of each week. I've come to terms that I'll never be a routine kind of a gal and I never want to be, so it's crucial to set realisitc and achievable to-dos daily. Knowing how sporadic my day can be, it's been really helpful. What I'm really missing now is the ultimate to-do Android app that embraces the simplicity of TeuxDeux, one that I've loved when I still had the iPhone. I've tried many (Todoist, Wunderlist,, but nothing stuck. I'm currently using Pushbullet and love its ability to push list/notes/links to and from your desktop and mobile devices. What are you using to organize your to-dos? I'd love to hear them.
