le-petit-princeI love a thoughtful link roundup as a way to discover the fantastic writing others are reading and sharing online. Here are my good reads from the week that was.

Good Reads

Beyoncé and Kate Middleton are not fashion icons, and that’s okay.

A foodie’s lament. (Aside: can we stop using the word foodie? As someone who deeply loves to eat well and explore cuisine, I’ve always begrudged the label. What an awful word.)

This Detroit burger joint pays its staff $15 per hour and runs a profit. 

The divorce surge is over, but the myth lives on.

Potentially-valid criticisms levelled at this first look aside, I’m excited to see how Pixar adapts my very favourite children’s story for the big screen.

Product of Mexico, part one.

  1. ditto, re: the term FOODIE. i get asked often about how to prepare a dish, like i’m supposed to have the recipe memorized. and i feel like i’ve somehow disappointed someone when i tell that i had instant ramen for dinner, and not beef wellington.

    1. Hi Lan! It’s been so long. I feel like I have so much of your writing to catch up on. Long overdue, but your wedding was stunning, by the way. I remember I looked through Flickr smiling wide at the loveliness.
