55. weekend to-do's

  1. le cinema. the mfa is hosting it's 20th annual french film festival. they've sourced a collection of france's best films of the year (as well as a few classics), giving us the rare opportunity to view them on the big screen.
  2. all things nina. there are several new projects highlighting the genius and complexity of the legendary nina simone: a new documentary offers an intimate look at her life and career. a tribute album featuring ms. lauren hill, jazmine sullivan and nina's daughter, lisa simone, highlights some of her most iconic songs. there have also been numerous recent articles celebrating her epic style. now seems like such a perfect time to appreciate her consistently relevant work.
  3. adventuretimes. i found courtney adamo's recent piece about taking a gap year with her family so inspiring. it reminded me of the excitement i felt when planning some of my more spontaneous travels. it also made me realize how long it's been since i went on a proper adventure. while selling my belongings and hitting the road for a year might not be feasible (at this time), i'm excited to explore some other ways to satisfy my wanderlust.

  1. yogaglo. every weekend i try to get some sort of yoga related activity in and recently i have been looking to elena brower for inspiration. her classes on yogaglo are thorough and her knowledge of the practice runs deep.
  2. sowa market! a close friend has recently started showing her beautiful creations at the south end open market. christine errington- also know as the hipster housewife- has great hand-lettered creations and everything is made by her so you know you are getting a unique piece each time.
  3. lonestar cambridge!! the owners of deep ellum and lonestar in allston have finally opened their cambridge location and i've been waiting for this restaurant to open for so long. delicious tacos and yummy margaritas. need i say more??
