Summer isn’t over yet! The bounty is still hitting the produce section at the grocery store and right now tomatoes are the star of the show. Those dry, white tomatoes of the winter season aren’t fun for anyone so I definitely like to take some time during the warmer months to enjoy them while they are at their very best. So get on it.

I don’t know quite why I got a bee in my bonnet about this but I did. It’s hardly a new trend either but our fleeting fashion loves sometimes defy all logic. I guess every once in a while we have to fall for some new denim trend to liven things up and at the moment for me that is black zipper jeans. It’s just a little extra detail that for some reason makes them feel fresh again.

Things I Love


I might be temporarily homeless but that just means I am thinking about ALL THE THINGS I want to do when I finally get my own place again (even though that’s a ways off). One thing I am dying to try is the rolling wardrobe rack DIY. These are super trendy (and practical) meaning there are tons of inspiring DIY ones out there right now. I really love the idea of using clothing as decor and this is one great way to do it. For the moment, I’m just taking notes but it’s something that I definitely want to try out when I can.

Hi guys! So I’m still in Vancouver for the time being (long story…) but I am still awaiting my big move. I’m couch surfing right now which has been interesting and actually has been very very awesome. So things are a bit in-between for me right now and you know what? That’s okay! It’s all working out. I will be leaving in about ten more days so blogging will be back for the time being. So there you go. Update. Have a great weekend & I will see you here next week. xx
