On Sunday I went to the Home + Design Show at BC Place and while I didn’t see much I liked in the way of houseware, I did fall in love with a local Vancouver company, The Hive Printing.

There were quite a few things I wanted to buy, but I settled on the following:


1937 City of Vancouver Map shirt

I got mine in a maroon colour but it was also available in a blue. Get yours here if you’re interested.

Downtown Vancouver Archival Map Canvas Tote

Downtown Vancouver Archival Map Canvas Tote

I also got this awesome tote bag. I’ve been meaning to get a tote but could never find the right one that didn’t look like it was trying too hard. This one fit the bill well though. Love it.

You should take the time to explore the store; there’s lots of other lovely stuff on there, including some tea towels I’m seriously regretting passing on.


  Taken while waiting for my friend to get ready/changed to g out for dinner. I looked so cute I had to take a picture. As you can see, I've been tying my bangs back as I wait for them to grow out. I also find that without bangs, I'm much more keen to let my hair air-dry which can only be a good thing. I've got on: -Jessica Simpson Waleo pumps in Ruby (less than $30 on clearance last month!) -Black pants from Plenty -Francoise top from Aritzia in charcoal -YSL lipstick in Red Muse

1) I just found out that my husband thinks I moisturize my boobs. We had a good laugh over it. And then I thought, “Wait, is this something girls actually do?” So I messaged my friend and she confirmed that she did it. So now I wonder,… have I been missing out all these years? Are my boobs arid like the desert?

2) So I waxed my vag earlier this month. It’s been a while and so I didn’t quite remember what to expect in terms of regrowth. Yes, I remembered hair grew back approximately around week 3. But I do not remember it being so patchy! It’s like a Asian man during Movember down there. Yikes! So after much debating about whether I should wait til I have at least 1/4″ regrowth all around or whether I should just take off the sparse jungle I have down there, I finally booked a waxing appointment for next week. Hopefully the aesthetician won’t kick me out for some of my tiny baby hairs.

3) I’m normally a dress/skirt kinda gal. I love wearing heels and showing em off. And what better way to do so than in a cute dress? But lately I’ve been craving a good pair of skinny pants. I think I own like 2 pairs I wear on a semi-regular basis. And like 1 pair of jeans. So should I give in and buy some pants? Or is this just a phase?

4) Wait, do girls also moisturize their area? Is this a thing too that I’ve been missing out on? Can someone fill me in?
