My Summer Bucket List

May 23, 2019

When Matt and I first moved into our new neighbourhood (see more about our real estate journey in Fairview in last week’s post!), one thing we started doing at the start of every season was a seasonal bucket list. We’d always somehow do it on our walk home from our favourite go-to brunch spot Cafe Zen in Kits, with Matt taking notes on our phone as we agreed on each new entry (we’re not nerds at all, I swear!). Being…

Buying Our First Home

May 16, 2019
Buying Our First Home: Follow along as we begin the exciting (and overwhelming) journey as first-time homebuyers.

When we first moved into our current apartment, we climbed to the top of our rooftop patio and took a collective gasp at the view around us. We were immediately sold – not only on the apartment – but our location as well. We’re going on six years now and honestly, we love it to bits. Matt and I have been together for 11 years and well over half of that has been spent together in our little slice of…

5 Last Minute (But Amazing) Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

May 10, 2019
Five simple but amazing last-minute gifts you can get your mom for Mother's Day!

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this week has been a doozy. I had jotted in a note a couple of weeks ago to get my Mother’s Day gift this past Monday before deciding to get myself all beaten up on Sunday—needless to say, I’m not exactly on top of my game this week, not to mention I’d committed ages ago to a Whistler weekend trip so I won’t even be around this weekend to do some last minute running…

Wedding Style Made Easy

May 9, 2019
An easy go-to wedding look; a flowy dress that hits below the knee, nude pumps, and a fun clutch, styled by To Vogue or Bust!

Sorry for such a late-in-the-week post guys! If you saw on IG Stories, I had a freak accident of sorts this past Sunday—walking from our rooftop deck back down the stairs into our apartment, somehow my left foot (which was in the slipperiest slippers known to man, so dumb of me) shot out from underneath me as I took the big step down to reach the first step at the top of our staircase, sending me flying in the air…

My 4 Fave Bike Routes in Vancouver

May 3, 2019
The four best bike routes in Vancouver, Canada: The Stanley Park Loop, The False Creek Seawall, The Beach Route, and The Adanac Route.

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my posts in March about how my beloved bike Mojito (named after its mint green tone) got stolen—I had had that bike for over a decade and it’d been with me all around the country, from university in Victoria to Toronto when I lived there, back to Vancouver. I’d explored so much with it (or him, I always make my inanimate objects male which I’m sure is perfectly normal,…

My Latest Hair Obsession

May 2, 2019
Velcro roller tutorial

The last few days, I’ve been able to go for walks in my T-shirt (with the exception of today, so grey out!)—it’s been so nice out and it feels like summer is truly on its way. When the weather warms up, my beauty & hair routines automatically adjust. I start adding in a higher SPF, my colour palette starts getting a lot more bronzed and golden when it comes to beauty, and I start finding any excuse to air-dry my…
