Welcome to officially my absolute favourite part of Italy: Cinque Terre! While I absolutely loved Rome, loved Tuscany and after this incredible coastal experience, would fall head over heels for Florence, Verona and Venice, Cinque Terre undoubtedly has my heart. Even though it’s become so much more touristy over the years, it still gives you a real feel of what a beautiful, slow life in these tiny coastal towns must’ve been like. Cinque Terre translates to Five Lands, including the…

So as you guys might’ve already seen on my Instagram, cherry blossom season is upon us and with that, I want to apologize in advance for the blossom bonanza that is definitely going to ensue. It’s honestly just such a special part of the year for me, especially because it always happens right around my birthday (agh, 4 days left to the big 3-0!) and because of the ephemeral nature of these beauties—you blink once and they bloom overnight, blink…

Modern Brigitte Bardot Beauty

All of my biggest beauty and style icons are from the ‘60s or ‘70s, and with good reason—these decades fused edginess, sexiness, femininity and most important to me, while there are some questionable periods or trends in each decade (the disco era, heavy white liner, etc), I’ve found for both beauty and style, there’s really a focus on playing up what you’ve got. Whether it’s creating that iconic angular cat eye to play up your bone structure, tousled bed hair…

If you guys followed along on my Insta Story over the weekend (which included a pretty epic Stanley Park bike ride, cherry blossom spotting and so much more—make sure you’re following along here if you’re not already!), it’s probably pretty apparent that spring has finally made its grand arrival here in Vancouver! While we have rain in the forecast for the next little while (April showers, sigh) even just a few days of glorious sunshine was all the convincing I…

When we were planning out our Italy trip we were honestly at such a loss for our route, where we wanted to go, etc (though we did fortunately get all those details firmed up—see our 3-week itinerary here!). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—Italy’s just so dense, with so many incredible places to go and explore that it can be hard to make a pick! Even though we spent decent time in each place we went to,…

If you guys would’ve asked me when I was 15 what my body confidence tips were, I would’ve probably stared at you in shock and retreated to my expert level minesweeper game without a word. Needless to say, I think my “awkward phase” was a far more pronounced one, but in a roundabout way it’s actually something I consider to be a serious blessing. Because I didn’t grow up in those formative years feeling particularly pretty or remotely attractive to…
