WEEKEND READING LIST: A round-up of the week’s top stories from across the St. Joseph Media network

  • Toronto Life hypes Holt Renfrew’s holiday windows. Check out their “The 12 Days of Christmas” then head down to 240 Sparks to see how our Holt’s windows measure up.
  • Torontoist has some tips for guys participating in the Movember moustache fundraiser on how to avoid looking like a complete jerk.
  • Canadian Family has a list of the 13 great Canadian songs every kid should know. We can totally get behind “Heart of Gold.” But “Life is a Highway”? Seriously?
  • Quill & Quire has the cook on your Christmas list covered with the winning books from the Canadian Culinary Book Awards at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. Bon Appétit!
  • Fashion Magazine covers the A-listers (and a few B-listers) with photo highlights from last week’s  Versace for H&M runway show and afterparty. Models, including the campaign’s star Abbey Lee Kershaw, showed off all the covetable clothes on a runway paved with gold for a celeb-filled audience including Blake LivelyJessica AlbaUma Therman, and Chace Crawford. The night capped off with a VIP afterparty featuring performances by Prince and Nicki Minaj.
  • Ottawa Magazine, in case you missed it, has an interview with first-time Gold Medal Plates competitor Lili Sullivan. Meet the executive chef at East & Main Bistro in Wellington in Prince Edward County and learn more about how she’s preparing for the big night.
  • Wedding Bells must have figured on rain for the next couple of days, opting to highlight 10 Great Wedding Movies to watch this weekend. That’s a lot of chick flick action.
  • 20 Minute Supper Club was hot on quinoa last week, but we think this week’s eight simple and speedy pasta dishes will be a lot more popular — at least in our experimentation-averse household.
  • Where references 15 historic Canadian battle sites with suggestions to visit some of the most interesting sites of battles fought on Canadian soil to visit today.
