Jacek and I are obsessed with The Amazing Race Canada. And very disappointed that Sukhi and Jinder were eliminated last night.
But we also happen to be heading to Halifax tomorrow night for the weekend. So the Bay of Fundy and Peggy’s Cove are going to happen for us on Friday and Saturday. Road trip! You see this lighthouse? That’s where I’m going to make Jacek take his first selfie. Remember that scene in Mermaids where Winona Ryder loses her virginity to Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles? This is how I always pictured it.
We could get arrested for that.
It would be worth it.
Anyway, if you’re in Halifax on Sunday, come to Word On The Street!
Yours in gossip,
I still can’t find an official opening date for Victoria Beckham’s flagship store on Dover Street. They said she was hoping to launch during London Fashion Week. So… any day now. But not tonight. Tonight she was photographed leaving the shoppe after inspecting work progress. Will there be a party? Who’s on the guest list for the party? Is Anna Wintour coming to her party? She better have a party. Full Story

I feel like I know more about this wedding than the Kanye West wedding. That said, you know who would agree with making the wedding as big of a f-cking deal as possible and broadcasting it far and wide? My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken. It’s a celebration. You don’t hide a celebration in a corner. Full Story

Ordinarily this kind of post would be on the LifeStyle page. But I'm so hard for this cape I need to blast it out. And my entire week might have to be re-organised so I can prioritise making this happen in my life. Check out this beautiful thing. This beautiful, beautiful, beautiful thing. Full Story
Jennifer Lopez stepped out in a great dress today. JLO legs. JLO everything. But she must never need to sit down. How do you sit? I work on a tv show and we are constantly crotch-testing our shots on camera. And we aren't wearing sh-t that grazes our ass cheeks. I'm going knee-length today and I'm still paranoid about a pussy flash. Full Story
For months now, Taylor Swift has turned the sidewalk outside her NYC apartment into a runway. She decided she wanted to be a style "icon", as we continue to degrade the true definition of that word. Well, it worked. PEOPLE Magazine just named her Best Dressed Of The Year. Evidently walking out of an Anthropologie and wearing the same sh-t Elie Saab designs over and over and over again gets you to the top of the fashion list. Full Story
This is the cutest thing you’ll see all day. And it’s not that Sesame Street doesn’t always have a purpose, because of course kids are learning while they’re watching, but for Lupita, she’s always made it clear that, for her, there’s a consistency in her branding too. Full Story
There are a lot of fans of Matt Damon out there. But Matt Damon doesn’t make himself available too often for pap shots…even though, ahem, he lives very close to the Afflecks. This is another conversation. Here’s Matt Damon out for dinner in Brentwood last night. They keep putting his name on the reported list of celebrity guests to George Clooney’s wedding. Full Story
In advance of The Mindy Project returning for its third season, Mindy Kaling is doing press, including stopping by Howard Stern to talk about how BJ Novak—her Office-mate “Ryan” and also a producer on her show—is the one that got away. As per usual she’s funny, charming, and honest, saying that she was “never more beautiful” after they broke up because she doesn’t eat when she’s sad. Full Story
W Magazine’s cover feature this month: The New Royals There are several women who’ve been chosen. The best one, to me anyway, since we’re keeping with a Canadian Maritime theme today: Ellen Page, born in Halifax. Ellen Page, definitely a new royal, definitely getting the respect she deserves.

“Happiest of birthdays to our beautiful, funny and sweet Lucia, from her animal-loving friends around the world, and from Ringo the Hobbit dog and Chester (but not Ivy, since she's busy destroying everything in your house). While you may not be able to swing a trip to The Mothership, we hope that somehow you find a way to survive being surrounded by your adoring husband, adorable and mischievous fur babies, and the gorgeous Australian springtime that heralds in your new year.

I’ll Give You The Sun.
A new book by Jandy Nelson, available today and, with 3 months to go, quite possibly my favourite book of 2014. I’m telling you right now, clear your weekend because as soon as you start, you won’t want to do anything else. And then give yourself a few hours and read it all over again.
This is a story you want to rip through, because you care so much about Noah and Jude, you want to know what happens. At the same time, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself to sloowwwwww down. Because Nelson’s voice is so fresh and so full of …well, of everything…you won’t want to miss a single detail. And that’s what’s exciting. There are paragraphs in this book that are so f-cking good, so well-written and imaginative, the reading experience becomes a thrill-ride, when all you’re really doing is lying in bed with a book.
