Life File: Friday Links & Reads

Happy Friday! What a gorgeous week we’ve been enjoying here: perfect sunny days and Summer like temperatures, it sure has been pure bliss 🙂

Today is the first day of the Toronto Food & Wine Festival at Brick Works, and I’m off to enjoy some serious culinary talent along with Magnum. This is my first time attending so I’m excited to experience what is considered to be the ultimate culinary weekend in Toronto. To my local readers, this is a great opportunity to sample the best of local restaurants, wineries and breweries, so if you plan to go, you have until Sunday. Annnd if you’d like to participate in a fun contest for a chance to win a dinner for 2 at the Rasa, simply share a #MagnumMoment on social media along with the hashtag #win 😉 You have until Sep 24th to do so and here are the rules for more details.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Below some links and reads in case you’d like to check them out:

. If you’re looking for unique decor finds, head over to Furbish (Jamie just came back from Istanbul with lots of amazing goodies)
. Get extra 50% off sale styles at Banana! My picks: this bag, this skirt (love the whole look), this, this and this (so cute).
. Yesterday I visited the new COS store on Bloor and fell in love with these, might need to go back and try them on 😉
. 12 storage rules to make your fruits and veggies last longer
. What a great bag for such a good price! Would be perfect for Fall.
. I made this (sans the chicken and the pesto, and with goat cheese instead of gorgonzola) on Monday for my girls night in with a few of my closest friends, and it was a HUGE hit! It’s easy and SO good!
