So this post comes a little later than intended but I’ve been mourning over my departure from New York. Vancouver just doesn’t quite have the same appeal. If you’ve visited both cities, you will know exactly what I mean. In fact, if you’ve even just seen both cities, you’ll know what I’m talking about. When they say that New York City can’t be described, it has to be felt, it’s true. This isn’t my first time, I’ve been many times and I’m always happy to know that it won’t be my last. 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.

My name is Randa, I’m the youngest of two and my brother, Tamer is 5 years older. I work in Marketing for Robson Street and have a lifestyle blog that I work at semi-regularly… I was born in Vancouver and have never lived anywhere else. I’m a self proclaimed crazy cat lady, sans crazy. It’s all surface. Have you really told someone you just met your true story? No…

Happy hump day everyone! The week is almost over and we’re only 2 days away from the weekend. Do you have any plans this weekend? Maybe you should head somewhere with your girlfriends… maybe, Victoria? For those that haven’t been to Victoria or know much about our island neighbours, Victoria is British Columbia’s capital. It’s home to the Parliament building, an abundance of greenery, outdoor activities and officially the tastiest prawn taco I’ve ever had. (Like, legitimately, you order it from a shack called Mexican Taco at Fisherman’s wharf. Thank me later.) Besides all of the above, Victoria is a…
