Hi There! Every Sunday I put together a LAZY SUNDAY READING list of my favorite reads from the week. On the LAZY SUNDAY READING list you'll find important news, inspiring stories, and all-things entrepreneurship. I love a good lazy Sunday where I get to catch-up on all of the interesting articles I bookmarked during the week, but didn't have time to finish reading during the busy workweek. Any bookmarks you'd like to share? I'd love to hear what you are reading! Leave a note in the comments or on social media: @SIKUstyle
- Who isn’t obsessed with anything Yotam Ottelenghi touches? I mean the guy is a culinary genius, not to mention it’s the original little Ottolenghi shop in Notting Hill that made me a self-proclaimed foodie. After many a visit to Notting Hill shop when I lived in Holland Park—Jerusalem artichokes soared to a heavenly level. Anyways, I loved this article in the NYT Food Section, What to Cook This Weekend, because it’s all about Yotam. Now I can live vicariously through him forever.
- Frida Kahalo’s wardrobe is a must see, full-stop. You might know her from her famous self-portraits, flower crowns and dare I say, THE unibrow, but these images shared by The Guardian are pretty incredible. It’s like a time warp and glimpse into the wonderful world of Kahalo. Check it out here.
- Seriously love when folks use music to raise awareness. Plus Lubana Al Quntar is pretty amazing. She was forced to flee her home during the initial uprising in Syria and is now using her star power (she’s an incredible opera singer) to highlight how refugees have contributed to culture and the arts for centuries. She recently performed with the Refugee Orchestra project. Check out her interview in Refinery29 to learn more about such a remarkable woman.
- Martha Stewart’s got it down to a science. Ever wonder how America’s domestic diva extraordinaire organizes her day. Check out this list on the 8 things Martha does before 10 AM. #BossLady #Goals
- Crazy to think we were having this conversation about aid to artisans nearly 16 years ago. Read more about the famous Beni Hamida rug co-op in Jordan circa 1999. This one’s from the archives but it says a lot about where we are today with regards artisan support initiatives. Def worth a read & some reflection.
