24 Confessions

Tomorrow is my 24th birthday! Anyone who is older is going to laugh but I feel kind of old. Can I still say I’m in my early 20s? I’m not having a quarter life crisis (I think), but it blows my mind that some of my favourite movies and songs are over 10 years old. Anyway, last year I shared 23 facts about me, but this …

Washington State Road Trip Part 1: Seattle

For the (Canadian) Thanksgiving long weekend, I took a trip across the border with my boyfriend and another friend. It was a memorable one, and it seriously made me see the state in a new light. Washington State Road Trip Part 1: Seattle Washington is the neighbouring state to BC, so I’ve been several times. I’ve always found it pretty similar to home (it’s still the Pacific …

Velvet Slip Dress

But I’m trying to stay positive. It’s still not too cold, the colourful leaves are pretty, and I can pull out the only cold weather item I missed wearing: boots. More specifically, ankle …

Stripes & Velvet

I hope you believe me, even though I’ve tried many trends this year (lace-up, cold shoulder, off the shoulder). But I swear I love them all. Same goes for velvet, which is huge even though fall just started. I love a good texture, and …

Los Angeles Travel Diary

Continuing on from last post, my Venice Beach & Santa Monica travel diary. We spent Saturday and Sunday in Los Angeles itself, or at least partially. If I understand correctly, Los Angeles is actually small but Los Angeles County is huge. It’s made up of a bunch of cities like Beverly Hills, Malibu, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. But you can still call them LA. …
