When I looked at the calendar in preparation of this week’s travel tuesday, I couldn’t believe that it is already July 31st! Where does the time go? So, to celebrate this last day in the 7th month of the year that I went to my 7th continent, I present to you: “Travel Tuesday :: Continents
Last June (…the 2011 June…) I posted about my very first Pinterest inspired craft: coasters! That was just a sneak peak and I promised I’d put a tutorial up soon. Unfortunately, in some France-induced excitement last summer, I deleted my memory card and lost all the step-by-step images. But, never fear… yesterday I undertook project
Travel “Tuesday” this week is on a “Tuesday” because my little computer was sick and in the hospital on Monday and Tuesday morning. Trackpad problems. But no worries, she’s back and working better than ever! As I mentioned on Monday, this past weekend we photographed a beautiful wedding on the Sunshine Coast. And the second
I’m switching things up a little today (and perhaps for the next several weeks). Instead of focusing on places I’ve been, how about places I want to go. Or images that inspire me to travel. Like these. 1. Lady on Train. Pinterest. Original Source. 2. See The World. Pinterest. Original Source. 3. The Maldives. Pinterest.
Though I’ve previously posted a photo of Dubrovnik in travel tuesday series, I have to admit, it isn’t my favourite place in the world. Too busy, too many cruise ship tourists, and just a bit too intense for me. But then we took a ferry over to Dubrovnik’s little brother, Korcula. And I fell in
After 1 and a bit beautiful days in Vancouver, we’re back to fall-like weather. So to “celebrate” I am sharing one of the most beautiful places in the world. If you ever get the chance to go to Japan in the fall… go. And then go to Kyoto. My husband (who was my brand-new fiancé
This is the last of three instagram travel tuesday posts. Today, some quintessential SF shots taken in the beautiful weather last week. I love that city, though I have to say: I’m happy to finally be home with my hubby!
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!
Yesterday evening I stopped by Make It! Vancouver for some shopping and snacking. If you haven’t heard of Make It!, well, it’s not your grandma’s craft show. The vibe at the show is funky, hip and modern very different from you traditional granny craft show!(not that there is anything wrong with that) Music is performed
As I write this post, I’m somewhere between Buenos Aires and Vancouver… after almost four years away from Vancouver, I feel as though I’m finally coming home. Leaving Buenos Aires is bittersweet, I love the city—the food, the energy, the design, the tree lined streets, the mishmash of styles, the fashion, the café culture, and
All our bags are packed, we’re ready to go. It’s funny, while I’m not really ready to leave BA, I’m very ready to get down to business in my favourite city in the world. BA has been so, so wonderful. But I love Vancouver. We moved away from Vancouver 1442 days ago, and I can’t
Today I bring you something extra fun: a guest post from the hubs! (I’ve been k-o-ed with a doozey of a cold, and he offered up this hilarious post. He’s a keeper!) Enjoy! Very few things drive me crazier than blatant, totally avoidable inefficiency. I realize to some this makes me sound like a crazy
Today, my friend Jenn and I are getting onto an overnight luxury bus (cama suite class) and heading to Mendoza do to a bike and wine tour. Three years ago, I did a bike and wine tour in Mendoza with the hubs, and it was super fun. So I’m looking forward to doing it again.
El Ateneo Grand Splendid, located at Santa Fe 1860 in Buenos Aires, is the most amazing bookstore I’ve ever been to. Originally a theatre, Teatro Grand Splendid, it was converted into a bookstore and cafe. One word sums it up perfectly: breathtaking. On the old stage of the theatre, you find a cafe. A perfect
Butting up to the Puerto Madero neighbourhood in Buenos Aires is the ecological reserve. A huge park, right on the Rio de la Plata. The park is full of willows, pampas grass, and walking paths, and is a great way to spend a morning. Beware – because of super wide paths, there is not a
