charlie and lee

Charlie and Lee has officially re-opened.. on 233 Union Street, Vancouver! A beautiful store with such beautiful things. And also one of my favorite blogs, which you can get to from here. Lucky for all of you who don't live in Vancouver, they also have an online store that you can shop on! But really - what's the experience without a visit to the real place??

bye, bye to the too good to be true kind of love

What a crazy pants. Amazing energy, on a beautiful day, a fabulous compilation of people on stage, and a bunch of music lovers. Also my 3 favorite Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros songs in a row. What could be better?

photo edits

Great news! My camera is coming back to me this weekend... can't wait. For now, here's some iPhone photography:

long weekend love

This is exactly how I felt about my past weekend.

outfit envy

I think I've been fairly successful of using most items in my closet in the past little while...and I'll hopefully continue to do so. But it doesn't stop me from wanting to steal other people's wardrobes every once in a while...

comme des enfants

"On se prend la main, comme des enfants / le bonheur aux levres, un peu naivement / et un marche ensemble, d'un pas decide / alors que nos tetes nous crient de tout arreter"
we take each other's hands, like children / the happiness on our lips, a little naive / and we walk together from a decided step / even if our heads tell us to stop everything

turban tying

I am a scarf lover - they're a great accessory and they keep my neck exceptionally warm. Here are some scarf styling tips from Free People - my personal favorite being The Turban:

smile for me, pretty baby

I somehow have a black & white trend going on in this post... which was not purposeful but I like it. Smile! It's the weekend....

water monkeys

Anyone remember these? Such a creepy idea... my friend & I started talking about them last time I was at home

Here's some more wonderful water-inspired photos.

DIY for free

I've been looking for the perfect green army vest for a while now... and have been unsuccessful. So I took this very old blazer/safari jacket and simply cut off the sleeves & voila - just what I was looking for.

Whole Wheat Buscuits

Atlantis Home is always has the greatest photography & ideas...a very well rounded blog. As I was perusing it, I found this recipe she had for whole wheat biscuits that I just need to try. Here's her beautiful pictures of this delicious looking dessert:

Excuse my blog right's "under construction". I was in the middle of changing it all around when my internet connection stopped - for a few days. I now have it back but it's a busy week at school and work so I'll do my best to fix it soon.

shoe envy

[ 5inchandup i love the chunky sock/shoe combo ]

I've always been a fan of All Saints, especially their shoes. Unfortunately, I've never been able to afford it. Here's some of their shoes online now that I'm lusting over.

show me your face

I'm really being inspired recently by fashion photography...and I aspire to take photographs like these one day. Unfortunately I can't for the remainder of this month until my camera is back in my sweaty little palms. 

lamp lust

I saw these lights at my most recent visit home in Anthropologie - forever my favorite store and also my past and again soon-to-be place of work (it's opening on South Granville on May 13th). I have a feeling that I might soon be trying my own DIY version of this.. I think I might be able to get my hands on a saw. I'll let you know if I actually follow through with it...
