South Granville

I walked a long way home the other day, taking my camera through the older part of Granville. Everything is bursting with colour and when the sun shines it’s hard to stay inside. Here are a few shots from that gorgeous day!

Sleepless in Seattle Fashion

Annie spends the majority of the movie in matching cardigan sets, long coats and fantastic scarves. Nothing she wore hinted to the fact that she had a figure, and those wide leg pants heavily inspired this editorial. Being a journalist, she stuck to neutral tones, adding colour mainly in the print below her chin. Below […]

Sleepless in Seattle

Rainy days are perfect for curling up in a cozy sweater and watching Meg Ryan fall in love. Sleepless in Seattle also battles the weather in a story of love, fate and two strangers 2000 miles apart. The film starts with an innocent phone call by an 8 year old to a radio show on Christmas Eve. […]

Floral Print

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has just released 400,000 images online. To celebrate, I will be putting one up with any information I can find every Friday. This first print is from 1795 and is a textile from Britain. The colours are rich and though the print is busy it flows beautifully. Credit

Gotham Trailer

There are countless stories, films and retellings of how Bruce Wayne came to become Batman, but not as many focus on the man who helped him. Gotham focus’ on the origins of Inspector James Gordon, and many of the classic villains who plague Gotham City. The series is created by Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist), and […]

Paired with my new, adorable, salt and pepper shakers from Anthropologie, I cannot wait to begin testing out these incredible dishes and have dinner parties. […]

Julie and Julia

Julie and Julia is more than just a movie about food. For this blogger it is a great inspiration and a wonderful comfort. Writing is hard, and writing everyday is an enormous undertaking for someone with a full time job. I barely have time to write copy for work let alone a proper post about […]

Ripley’s Aquarium Part 1

While in Toronto, my mother and I ventured into the city to see the new Ripley’s Aquarium. It was incredible, the colours were stunning and there were fish we had never even heard of before. Although the price was a little ridiculous, we had a great time exploring. For more photos click here.

Moron

The city of Moron was my favourite stop on the tour, the decaying architecture, the bright colours and expressive people showed a side of the country we didn’t experience on our island. It would have been nicer to be in a bigger group while walking around the city in order to explore more comfortably but […]

Jeep Tour

On our last day we decided to partake in an all in one tour – dolphins, jeep tour, crocodiles and the city of Moron. We talked to two separate people about this tour and neither mentioned the crocodile conservatory, so ending up there was quite the surprise. My friend decided she needed to touch every […]

Memories Resort

The silence on the blog recently will now be made up for with lots of photos of my vacation! A friend and I took a trip to an all inclusive in Cuba called Memories Flaminco on the island of Cayo Coco. The ocean was turquoise, the sky was bright blue and weather was perfect – […]

I Miss Nine

Even the Doctor dances. Re-watching the first season of Doctor Who only makes me miss Nine (Christopher Eccelston) even more. This sassy, intense but loving man is so different from the two more recent Doctors and introduced the series with a strong season. This clip, from episode nine, aptly titled The Doctor Dances, features a […]

Sunshine After the Rain

Rain had taken over Vancouver, creating a dark, damp, dreary week. Then the sun came out and when those mountains are out you immediately forget how miserable it is when it rains. People come out in hoards, couples walking across the bridge, kids chasing pigeons on Granville Island and bikes galore! Here are some of […]
