Finding a stylist in a new city can be the absolute worst, one bad haircut after the other in search of the perfect stylist – been there, done that. That’s why Kendra & I wanted to share Trim, a clean + classic hair salon on Main St. for this week’s feature. Their stylist not only master their craft, but they’re also passionate about bringing out your unique beauty. I dig that.
My first haircut at Trim took place with Michael, a sweet stylist who prides himself on making his clients look + feel beautiful. I mentioned to him I was attending a wedding a few hours after the hair appt and he hooked me up with a brilliant cut + blowout. How’s that for a first time visit?!
I love that every time I come in we catch up where we left off. He does such a good job at making me feel more like a friend than a client.
For this appointment, I came in wanting a trim back into the long bob I had 2 months prior.
He threw in a few curls for me so that I could rock a messy, wavy look the next morning ;)
If you’re in Vancouver and in need of a stylist, I promise you this place is wonderful:)

I’m too anxious & excited to sit still enough to put an entire post together right now – tomorrow i’ll be picking up my race packet for the London Marathon!!! I’m currently hangin’ out at Vancouver airport & should be up in the air in under an hour! 4 months of training finally complete and race day in three days! 26.2 miles, i’m ready for you:)
It’s been one of those weeks… I’ve began tapering for the marathon so I’ve been over-thinking my training & feeling a little sluggish. This week’s eat sip shop feature, Greenstems, was the perfect mood-lifting treat:) One could never have enough flowers or plants in their life, right!? They always seem to make the day better:)
Hop on over to Kendra’s blog to read the full post !! Hope you have a lovely Thursday!
Pentagram collaborated with WWF-UK for this brilliant poster campaign promoting Earth Hour (remember to turn off your lights tomorrow from 8:30-9:30pm local time!!) According to Do the Green Thing’s website, “Our motto is Creativity vs Climate Change. Our product is a feed of beautiful, subversive and delightful inspiration made by great creative talent from around the world. Our aim is to inspire as many people as possible to live in a less selfish, less consumptive, more imaginative and more sustainable way. Try it. You might even like it.” Yess! Nothing excites me more than creatives caring about real issues!
Aren’t these posters great? You can check out the entire campaign here
I also wanted to share an interview a local Vancouver cable channel did on my WWF Fundraiser for the London Marathon – You can view it here :) If you’d like to donate to this awesome organization, you can do so here - thanks in advance for supporting an organization that means so much to me!
I’m feelin’ pretty pumped as it’s all becoming real now… eaaa! Tomorrow I’m setting up with some friends to host a wwf bake sale. ha! yes! a bake sale:)
Are you planning on doing anything for Earth Hour? Hope you get up to something fun!
Just a little over two weeks ’til I’m running the streets of London – someone pinch me!! Really though, how is it almost April?! I haven’t had the chance to sit down & think about everything I want to see & do (and wear!!! doesn’t that dress complete the perfect ensemble for a little date around the city!? ;) This afternoon I’m taking the time to do a little London dreamin’ :)
If you’ve been before, I’d love to hear about your favourites!

I absolutely love my neighbourhood with its close proximity to the seawall and all the little parks. But one thing missing was a local, cosy cafe. Sometimes you just don’t feel like walking 20 minutes to Gastown or Main Street to meet up with your girlfriends for a coffee date. Lucky for us in the West End, Greenhorn Cafe has arrived! I first found about this gem through my lady, Allessia. (thaaaanks!)
Kendra & I met up over the weekend at Greenhorn Cafe for this week’s Eat Sip Shop feature. a very delicious scone & americano for me. tea & chocolate crossiant for Kendra – yum!the fresh flowers around the cafe are the perfect touch to brighten up the typical rainy mornings here in Vancouver.. the space may be a little small, but the big windows & beautiful open layout make it a winner in my books.With Kendra moving into the neighbourhood, I can see this becoming our regular hangout. Make sure to check it out! And as always, I love supporting small businesses when the owners are passionate & down to earth. Walter is definitely that:)

Over the weekend Kendra & I stumbled into the cutest shop, Production Road, in our West End neighbourhood. This hidden gem tucked away on Nicola St. carries local artwork, stationery, and little plants! I wouldn’t mind adding these succulents to my desk… Hop on over to Kendra’s blog to check out this week’s eat sip shop feature!
Hope you’re having a good week!
