Typically, when you go out for tea you pair it with some sort of pastry or sweet. Well, Yaletown’s latest Cha Le Tea (pronounced chah•luh) is changing the game with a specialty line of high quality teas from China paired with toast! The idea is simple, you order tea and toast but the let me tell you the flavour is anything but simple. From 6 savory toasts to 2 sweet toasts, Cha Le Tea offers Prosciutto Smashed avocado and poached egg to flavours that include the tea with a Hand Peeled Shrimp Matcha avocado and shredded nori all the way to Chocolate Toast with…

Happy Friday, everyone! The weather report in Vancouver is calling for another snow storm and frankly, I don’t think I can handle another one. If only I could teleport myself to somewhere sunny and warm when this happens. *sigh* The dream! In the meantime, I’m going to lust after warmer spring style jackets that I don’t need to layer under. I’m sure most of us own a moto(rcyle) style jacket but how many different styles do you own? I personally own 2 and shocker, they’re both black. My friend Sabrina of Street Scout Me has a pretty impressive collection of…

I was asked the other day if I…

I’m back! Thank you to all who followed me on my NYC adventures. I had a blast and like always, can’t wait to head there again. I’ll be putting together a full post on my trip in the coming week so stay tuned! I didn’t seem to mind the mounds of snow that fell in Vancouver because I was too busy gallivanting around NYC in warmer than expected weather. The increase in temps has me wanting warm winter outfits that give me the best of both worlds, so enter the chunky knit sweater and leather skirt combo. From my experience,…

Only one more sleep until I’m heading on a super early (way too early) flight to New York City! I can’t explain my excitement. New York is a city that I cannot wait to visit, each time. I literally crave the city and once I’m there, all feels right. I’ll be spending one full week there with Alex and need to do my best to not over-pack. Luckily, my new luggage is a little smaller than my usual case so I won’t pack as much. Today I’m sharing my tips and tricks on how to not over-pack! I need to pack…
