I find Vancouver’s weather to be the one of the hardest to dress for, at least out of all of the cities that I’ve traveled to. Even though I’ve lived in Vancouver for 29 years, I can’t seem to get the outfit right for the temperature! Winter, in my opinion is probably the hardest to dress for.

The girls and I headed to Joffre Lake on the…

The 20 day countdown to Christmas is on! Whether you’re on a budget, have the money to splurge or simply don’t know what to get your loved ones, I’ve rounded up 10 last minute gift ideas to give and they’re all under $100 from a one stop shop(bop). I’ve recently purchased the Adia Kibur Taylor Tier Earrings and the Sincerely Jules Ryder Button Up Shirt for myself and can’t wait to receive them in the mail this week. I’ll be dressing them up on the blog coming up! Alex and I recently purchased the Thug Kitchen 101 Cookbook as well as the original Thug…

Earlier in the week, we discussed how to create a wardrobe fit for your office attire. We touched on the questions to ask yourself and what you’ll need and how to wear them. Today, we’re taking some of your office wear items and trying them on the for the weekend. Having a multi-functional wardrobe is key for someone like myself who is on a budget, is on the go and is a low maintenance dresser. If you missed my posts on “How to Shop“ and “Office Wardrobe“ click here and here. The items that we’re restyling for the weekend are…
