Weekend Web Round-up: April 26th edition

Happy weekend! Over the last few weeks, I've had the opportunity to attend a number of "women in business" networking events. Being relatively new in my career, it's always inspiring to hear from others about their own professional journeys. More often than not, I walk away with a few gems that I keep close and reach for, especially when work (and life) get very busy. 

This week's web inspiration comes from three different categories of women. Each are successful (and coincidentally famous) in their own right and inspired me this week. 

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen on The Ellen Show are hilarious and refreshingly human. The petite fashion moguls have come a long way since their Full House days with their Elizabeth and James and The Row lines being among my favourites for minimalistic chic. 

The Duchess of Cambridge, during her tour of New Zealand and Australia, has provided one sartorial treat after another. The WhatKateWore blog is the guide to see in detail everything that was worn. There is something so refreshingly feminine, elegant and chic about Catherine's wardrobe choices. I'm even more impressed with how at ease she looks in both "fast fashion" like her go-to Zara blazers and skinny jeans as well as her impressive collection of high-end designers. She is truly the master of restyling and re-purposing pieces for multiple occasions. 

I'm currently reading Arianna Huffington's Thrive and this interview with Julianne Moore in Harper's Bazaar offers eight key takeaways for how to elevate one's life from merely existing to thriving.

Have an amazing day!
