Every once in awhile you just need some inspiration. For me such inspiration regularly comes from the internet (pinterest, blog posts, random browsing, facebook), from spending time with friends, from photo walks, from magazines, from a sunset, from lots of places, but yesterday I realized there is so much more. I attended a photography workshop
Here is a glimpse into my fabulous last week. Vegas. Road Trip. La Quinta, and today I’m in SF, about to attend a workshop with one of my all time favourite photographers, and I can’t wait!
I’m always looking for fun (and nice looking) ways to store my jewellery that are not only esthetically pleasing, but practical too (if it’s not easy for me to put my necklace away, you can be sure that it is going to end up on the counter). I found these old frames on sale at
Yesterday a group of girlfriends and I flew into Las Vegas! I’ve never been before and it feels like I am discovering a whole (bizarre) new world. We’ll be eating, drinking, cabana-ing, and cirque-ing for the next couple of days. Woohoo!
Inspired by my friend Melissa, I signed up for the Scotiabank half marathon in June. I was kicking butt on my training and plugging along ready to try to beat my previous time of 1:49 in May 2010. (The reason I like running is that picture. See that crazy happy face? Yeah… that’s at 21.5km.
Please excuse the terrible pun. Given my new home decorating bent, I’ve been reading a lot of Young House Love and the cheesy title puns are rubbing off on my like crazy! So. Bread. I’ve tackled bread a couple of times before: this delicious beer bread that I mistakenly thought used the yeast in the
As promised, today’s post is going to be short and sweet, here is a sneak peek of what is about to go down in my front yard.
Hi everybody! My post today isn’t super wordy, but it is super exciting! It’s HOUSE TOUR TIME! Remember ya’ll… this is the before post. There is a lot of work to be done. I took these images this very morning, so you have a live idea of where I am living! It is clear that
Ok. That’s a little bit of a stretch for “travelling”, but what it really means is that you should travel to Vancouver to come visit. I now live in a house that feels like a place where grown-ups live. We’ve got a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom AND a super huge office.
Ok. I admit it. I’m addicted to my daily breakfast of oats. In Buenos Aires, it was rolled oats (including these amazing peaches and cream oats) but now that we’re back we’ve moved on to delicious steel-cut oats. Though steel cut oats take longer to cook (about 20 minutes), their nutty, chewy, filling-ness more than
I scrolled through my travel tuesday images this morning and realized that I haven’t yet shared this one, and it was one of the coolest days of my life. In September 2008, we jumped into Devil’s Pool at the edge Vic Falls in Zambia. Access to Devil’s Pool is only during dry season, which is
Holy crap! I just realized it is the 7th. That means that I completely blew by the 5th without even realizing that I was due for a 30-before-30 update! This month just sort of blew by before my eyes, but have no fear, you just get a super special second post today with a (shorter
Yesterday I learned a valuable lesson. When something is too good to be true on craigslist… Tell the seller you have a truck. Let me back up a moment. Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about my new project “The Craigslist Decorator“? Well despite not having even moved into our place yet,
Rejection sucks. A lot. One minute you are going full speed ahead thinking “Holy crap. I’m going to win this!” And the next minute: wham. “Sorry. You didn’t make the cut.” When I learned I had not made it to the next round in Tourism Richmond’s 365 Days of Dining contest, the emotion came in
Happy Wednesday everybody! Since I missed Travel Tuesday yesterday (in favour of a Richmond restaurant review), I’m going to come at you a day late. The following images of Tigre were taken on my Nikon FM film camera. Tomorrow I’ll talk more about Richmond, about my disappointment, my teensy tiny bit of relief, and our
