The glorious golden hour sure is a beautiful thing to behold! Sean & I…or well more like I (cos the boyf was happily planted on the sofa kicking back) decided it was time for a stroll + photo sesh. Sometimes a self-induced pinch happens just because I still can’t get over the charming and picturesque area we live in. Trails that seem to go on forever together with lush landscapes that are both scenic and harmonious.

Within fashion culture, it seems like the future of midi rings is catching on like wildfire. I’m seriously joining this bandwagon and purchased my 1st set from a fab Etsy shop called Galisfly, all the way from Tel Aviv, Israel. I’d had my eyes on another store hailing from Brooklyn called Catbird since 1st spotting Bri Emery wearing her handful of awesome! Unbeknownst to me my bf Vivian made a trip to NYC pre her Vancouver visit and stopped into the Catbird store itself!!!! I gasped when she told me about it last week and then bigger gulped/gasped when she pulled one of their bags out of her purse…for ME! Capital D-ied over the whole gift give moment and when I opened the darling box there it was: the cat ring of my dreams. Such a sweet surprise from the most outstanding friend I’ve ever had! This cat-astic wonder is an ongoing centerpiece of an accessory – been wearing the hay-ell out of it. Thank you again Vivian, will wonders ever cease with you? I think not 🙂

friends in fashion places

One of the hi-lights from last month was attending the Liberty in Style Fashion Show & E-Boutique Grand Opening at Heritage Hall to applaud and support our friend Suzanne who’s recently opened Betty be Good, an online shop filled with many coveted girly gazes. The evening was so much fun – specialty catered dessert treats, wine and a continually flowing chocolate fountain held high appeal to all who made the scene. Everything was sunny and sparkling before the girls took to the catwalk showcasing all of the wonderful wares carried in the shop.

I posted about Betty be Good a while back and just had to share some of our snaps from the night too. Great to see a fellow Vancouverite rock her stuff, cheers to start ups and ladies who entrepreneur the shiz outta things! ♥

The time is slowly approaching…slowly for us who will miss her madly but FASTER PUSSYCAT for the one who’s breaking out of V-town with a delightful burst of celebration!!! My darling friend, Alex, is leaving on a jet plane and we honestly don’t know when she will be back again (seriously, how could i not use that line?!) but as send-offs go we had a hoot and holla for our beautiful pal on a special Friday evening past.

Alex’s Farewell Fiesta, as Cee, our host coined it; began promptly at 7pm ….. there wasn’t 1 straggler because we all wanted to get in as much time together as humanly,bloggery possible. The place was Havana, a local hot spot with loads of tasty selections including what we girls enjoyed sipping on… delicious sangrias while we toasted Alex on her new adventure! If you haven’t heard yet, she’s been nabbed by FASHION magazine and will be their newest, coolest intern. This, in turn (that’s a total pun of course!), means she’s traveling all the way to Toronto and setting up shop to begin a lifelong dream of completely stylin’ swoons. Can i just say this girl was made to rock the runways; interviewing fashions elite and sharing her feedback on the latest trends, as well as spotting them before they’ve even reached mass internet filteration. Just as fashion never gets old, it re-creates…so does Alexandra on her road to Vogue or bust! xo ♥

my funny bone and call me happy! Well that’s the way it went down last Friday when a bunch of us ventured out for the evening. Kate had tipped us off to a favorite comedian of hers, Graham Clark, and this girl knows of what she speaks. Poising ourselves in close vicinity we opted for dinner first at Yaletown Brew Pub. I believe the name alone insinuates a bit of a burger fest, am i right or am i right?!  When the bill came we were also treated to a little cotton candy nosh – brillsville marketing on their part and our seal of approval – ROGER THAT!

Next we mosied over to The Comedy Mix to see the show, it was a riot from go to whoa. Even the announcer dude was side-splitting; everyone’s spirits were high on humorous octane. The night drew to a close, we said our tahs and spun home. Knowing the minute we opened the door those kittehs would practically rocket launch out for hallway reconnaissance. They certainly aren’t a stealth pair, that’s a fact!

winding_up

Essentially this was my only outing for the weekend so it sure was great to spend it with these fine friends. I came to the realization that work and deadlines had the right of way, taking precedence over the remaining days which sort of stung a bit because I wasn’t able to go to the 3rd bloggy meet-up that had been arranged by Cee ANNNND it was a picnic in the park.
Of all things to miss – oh man, licking my wounds is what. Serious sacrilege of blogging buddy etiquette, I know…tell me about it. I’m told that Alicia is plotting the next one though and it’s gonna be good – remakequel sounds like a plan! 

Here’s to a new weekend that flows and shines, wishing you 
all kinds of glimmery goodness!!! ♥

pumpkin fields forever

The weather angels were so on our side this day, reminding the sun to rep itself and the clouds to stay far, far away! It was dealers’ choice as to which pumpkin patch we’d tromp through and my girlfs picked a stellar one for sure. There was a hay-bale ride complete with Mr. banjo-man strumming out the latest rendition of Old MacDonald, loads of furry farm friends grazing cautiously since there was a rampage of kiddlets running about.

We scoured endless fields for perfectly proportioned pumpkins, played in the hay-stack room; getting chased by our fellas with huge mounds on the ready to douse us with and snacked on pie (pumpkin, of course) while watching a rather eerie looking Jack-O-lantern backup dancer who seemed to be trying really hard not to bump into the band that was playing on the stage.

It was a chock-full of wonderful kinda day! ♥
