The nature gods answered my prayers – the sun came out this morning + the rain let up for a bit. This made me one happy girl on my way into the office. I even began a little earlier than usual so that I can dig for some inspiration. Came across this beautiful work by Konstantina Yiannakopoulou & George Strouzas. Simple, yet so effective, eh? Love it.
Hope you guys have an awesome weekend!
The rain in Vancouver has been relentless, guys. I haven’t seen the sun in days!! Thank goodness for gems like Walrus, a boutique on Cambie St. that can turn any rainy day into a pleasant one! Kendra & I popped in for a little visit for this week’s eat. sip. shop. feature. Walrus carries a well-curated selection of functional, fun, and unique items that make it nearly impossible to leave empty handed. tasteful, sophisticated gift ideas – I wouldn’t mind bringing these lovely bowls home…These Canadian city coasters are just way too awesome, eh?!
If you’re in Vancouver, stop by Walrus. The owners are super friendly! They even have art & design shows from time to time – two thumbs up for supporting the arts!

a lot more of this & 5:30 am wake up calls this month. Happy Monday, guys!
In early January I spent a weekend watching season 1 & 2 of Downton Abbey & Call the Midwife ( I know, I know.. a little late on that one..) Now obsessed with both, I’ve been wanting all things British, naturally;) I’m also pretty sure that the excitement for my upcoming trip to London has played a small role, too. Either way – I’ve eaten way too many scones & crumpets over the last month because of it! One of my favourites was enjoyed at The Last Crumb, this week’s eat. sip. shop. stop! It’s the perfect spot to have a casual tea & scone date! Hop on over to Kendra’s blog to read about our little visit.
French-inspired bakery filled with charm, delicious smells, and heavenly displayed baked goods? Oh, yes! We’re definitely into it. Kendra & I spent a lazy Sunday morning at Beaucoup Bakery, this week’s eat. sip. shop installment. diggin’ the touches of red & white throughout the cafe. branding i can smile about:) heaps of buttery, flaky goodness!
Deciding on just one pastry is where I always struggle! So many delicious, mouthwatering treats to choose from! The pear, walnut, rosemary and blue cheese scroll with a cappuccino, please! Perfect sweet & savory combination – the blue cheese wasn’t too sharp as I would have expected. I’ve already been back TWICE since our visit. PS: make sure to take home their Valrhona Chocolate Chip Cookie!! Délicieux!
