Hip to be #Shopping – Spring’s cardigans

There’s no denying spring is finally here and with it, come these very pretty cardigans for that balmy day on the town. Honeycomb, I’m Home Cardigan in Gold Nothing’s sweeter than a welcoming embrace from family and friends, but the darling accents on this knit cardigan certainly come close. Love the pearlescent buttons and cable knit in mustard. Dots and ...

The weather and other randomness

The weather and other randomness
The cold is back intermittently and so is the drippy rain. We leave the windows open to let in the cool air. It’s sunny again today and we’re planning to take a stroll on this sidewalk strewn with cherry blossom petals. I caught this brilliant sunset at 8:06pm. Yup, the days are definitely getting longer. By the way, did you ...

The sweetest, juiciest oranges ever! There’s not a single sour one in there. Just looking at them makes me happy. We’ve been going through one crate a week for the past few weeks and still going strong… wheeee! Obsess, obsess, obsess! Going back for more this weekend.

1. What are you doing for Easter? It’ll be just like any other day. By the way, when is Easter? 2. How many spring flowers have you noticed the last week or so? Who can help but notice the cherry blossom trees bursting into pink all over the place? See my pictures here. I saw daffodils and well, lots of ...

What’s for lunch?

What's for lunch?
Our lunches are getting simpler. Chips and our newfound 7-layer dip. So so good. And a ready-to-eat tray of shrimp cocktail. Homemade strawberry smoothie. You may not have heard of smoothie in a mug but that’s how I roll. As long as my smoothie is thick, frozen and made from fresh fruit, I don’t care if I have to slurp ...

The day we had to wash the dishes
… well, almost. It’s happened before. I couldn’t believe it was happening again. It felt like deja vue. So we decided to do fish and chips again for lunch. It’s the place where we practically have a table with our name on it. The entrance is by the open kitchen and when the chef sees us coming in, he always ...

An unedited photo of a gorgeous spring day in Vancouver. It’s unreal how those cotton candy clouds just seem to hang there by invisible strings against the plain blue sky. Enjoy your spring day.

Hey, happy Tuesday, how’s everyone been? 1. What has kept you busy lately? Oh, I’ve been watching a mini-series which is something I haven’t done in ages. But that’s how exciting life is here, eh? 2. Are you making or creating anything? Nothing at all. In fact, my lunches are getting simpler aka lazy cook. 3. What are you really ...

Can you say cherry blossoms?

Can you say cherry blossoms?
Yo, just back from my 48 degree walk (that’s 7, 8 degrees to you Celsius folks), and man, what gorgeous weather outside! It’s cool, cloudy, getting set to rain all day today, according to the weather man, and just so beautiful out. Sharing with you some pics of my walk today, fresh off my samsung. Cherry blossoms everywhere, omg! Walking ...

Hey everyone, I’m late to the party again… 1. Since these questions are posting on the first day of April, it seems only right to ask-when was the last time you did something foolish? If you can’t answer that one, try this one-when was the last time someone fooled you? I do foolish things, sure, and I laugh at myself ...
