In Portland

I’ve been to Portland only twice but it’s quickly become one of my favourite places to get away for a quick weekend. Living in Vancouver, we’re pretty spoiled with beauty all around us in our province, but every now and then making the drive across the border (or the train ride, as we did with Amtrak!) is a worthy reminder that there’s so much to explore, see and do by visiting our neighbours to the south. While Seattle’s a bit…

Early Bird

Off the shoulder dress styling

 Happy Monday! I have to be honest – I’m not feeling my peppiest and most energized today despite having a pretty restful and relaxing weekend. Why the sudden depleted energy levels? Because, my friends, this lifelong night owl is finally making the full transition to becoming an early bird. I’ve been chipping away over the past few weeks, waking up earlier and earlier each day, but today was my first 6AM wake up call (which is probably nothing for most…

Your Guide to Mykonos

Mykonos Travel Guide - what to see and do in Mykonos, Greece

Happy Friday! We haven’t been having the most summery weather here in Vancouver (biking home in the rain yesterday was definitely not what I envisioned my July commutes to be like) but at the very least, our iffy weather has given me some extra fuel to plan my next travels! It’s also got me dreaming about sunshine, the best beaches I’ve ever been to and sun-bleached passageways in beautiful Mykonos, the last in my Greece posts. Read on to catch…

Tanlines

July 13, 2016
How to wear off the shoulder dresses

We’ve officially entered that time of year when I have no choice but to allow my tanlines to be an accessory all on their own. I swear I’m actually really on top of my sun protection usually but I just pick up colour really easily and live a pretty outdoor life, so inevitably, I start to pick up tanlines right off the bat and they only get darker as the summer wears on. Personally, I actually love the look of…

The Other Side

July 12, 2016
What to see in Canada

Growing up in North Vancouver and being slightly car-averse (seriously, it’s kind of scary when I drive), I never really went anywhere else in the Lower Mainland other than the city back to the North Shore. I knew the 210 bus line very intimately (we had to get downtown to drink beer with our cool “downtown boyfriends,” after all) but other than that, I never really got into the other ‘burbs on the other side of the city, other than…

Midi

Crop top, midi skirt, leather jacket

Happy Tuesday guys! Well, technically this is my Monday – got in last night from an epic series of girls trips in the Okanagan (bachelorette followed by a little Kelowna + winery visit with my best friends) and needless to say, I’m feeling a little bit less than peppy! Having said that, so excited for this week, despite our less-than-amazing forecast for the week. When it gets a bit overcast like this but still pretty muggy, I know exactly how…
