What To See in Amsterdam: A Guide to the Prettiest Canals.

Amsterdam has always been one of my favourite cities. Matt and I visited a few years ago and had such an amazing time there—something about it reminded us of Vancouver a little bit, actually, but a far more European, cool version of it.

Rose gold beauty; a simple yet beautiful spring and summer makeup look.

As I mentioned in last week’s retro hair clip tutorial, when it comes to hair & beauty, I’m pretty low-maintenance—I wouldn’t say I’m totally bare bones when it comes to my routines (actually, when it comes to my skincare I’m downright high maintenance!) but I like to keep things pretty simple & fresh for the most part.

Tips for hosting a watercoloring party by To Vogue or Bust

If you guys follow me on Instagram & watch my stories, you might know I’m basically rapidly evolving into a 60 year old woman. From my recent obsession with gardening (which began last year about mid-way through the summer when I was revamping our side patio and added in window boxes) to Matt & I’s shared love of birding, aka spotting birds & identifying them, something about the last few years has given me a renewed appreciation for finding joy…

Joe Fresh spring line

I know this might feel a bit premature, but I swear, spring is in the air—while we’ve been having a really chilly start to the season there are glimmers of spring being on its way. Whether it’s the crocuses breaking through the soil or seeing new birds migrating back on the tree outside my window, this time of year always fills me with new hope and energy, getting me excited for the warmer seasons to come.
