This past weekend was the fashion and beauty summit BeautyCon held out in sunny Los Angeles, and I was fortunate enough to get a chance to attend.
I wanted to wear something simple and relaxed for the day, yet still look chic and polished. I ended up going with a minimalistic white top and some high waisted leather shorts, topped off with a statement necklace.
Channeling my inner Lana Del Rey for my first ever tutorial on the blog.
I’ve been meaning to create this tutorial for a while, and finally got around to it.
Sifting through the countless tutorials online, I found that most can actually be quite complex and time-consuming. But with some trial and error, I’ve found a really quick + simple way to efficiently create beautiful floral crowns.
An outfit I wore for the EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking festival.
I didn’t take too many pictures inside, but managed to snap a few of the food.
If you’ve never been, the festival is definitely worth checking out. Tons of different vendors, and a huge selection of food to sample. There are free ones available, but most of the more substantial offerings cost tickets.
You can buy packs of 20 tickets for $10, so it comes out to be 50 cents a ticket. Most items are anywhere from 2 – 8 tickets (or $1 – $4).

I wore my navy silk dress layered with a deep plum silk blazer. It’s hard to see in the photo, but there is actually a lovely bird texture imprinted on the fabric.
Great day for walking along the water to Gastown, where I finally grabbed my new business cards! I love it when online businesses offer local pick up as an alternative to shipping, it’s faster and saves on cost too.

It’s pretty rare to catch a sunny day in Vancouver these days, so I felt the urgent need to take advantage when the clouds finally relented, letting us have a peek of summer weather.
I hopped over to Coal Harbor for a quick visit and a brain break- over the past little while I’ve been immensely busy with an animated commercial that I’m working on. Despite my best efforts however, the project is a little behind with a copious amount of work left.
Why is it that production schedules never go according to plan??
I also can’t wait until all the gloom passes and summer finally hits. I am definitely a summer girl. It’s been my favourite season ever since I could remember.
There’s something in the air that just buzzes and hums, it gives me an extra surge of energy to do… stuff. To go out, meet with friends, get a drink, whatever. Winter just makes me want to stockpile food and hibernate forever alone.
But honestly, I’m really excited for the first few days we make it past 20 degrees. And patio dining. And ice-cream on those sweltering days. And hitting the beach. And summer blockbusters! And finding the perfect summer anthem on the radio :)
