Window shopping at Anthropologie

A long time ago (over two years ago, for my birthday in March), my sister gave me a gift card from Anthropologie. It was sweet. She listed a bunch of stores that aren’t my “usual” (i.e., Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic was not listed) and had me select one and she would give me a gift certificate….

A Bulk Barn trip is like Christmas to me

It was very timely as it was just ahead of a States-side road trip (to Point Roberts, WA – we’ve never been to), SmartCanucks posted about Bulk Barn’s Earth day deals. Since we’d be passing through Richmond, I immediately made a list of things to buy and was eager to wash out different size containers…

Purchases I’ve made because of a fashion blogger

I’m one of those now who have replaced my tech feeds with fashion, lifestyle and wellness feeds. Oh dear me. That being said, it helps because I just loathe shopping for clothes and Old Navy-Gap-Banana¬† Republic (who are we kidding, I don’t shop BR except the Factory version) can only be that stylish and unique….

Planted Meals – Vancouver planted-based vegan prepared meals

Last week, I saw in on Erin Ireland’s Instagram Stories that she ordered a week of Planted Meals. The only two meals I remember now are peanut noodles and “beef” bourginon and with the 50% off off for first time orders, I was sold and enjoying Planted Meals this week. She also mentioned how the…

Kondo-ing that shoe rack

Last week, one evening when I was waiting for NPY to bring SLZ home and dinner was already made, I tidily packed up a box of “Baby Lego” and packed some chunky cars that SLZ really doesn’t play with anymore into a box bulging with infant toys. Last week, I was at a spin class…

Microlending update

In almost 18 months since I started lending through Lending Loop, I’m impressed how my three measly minimum deposits ($200 each) has translate into lending $900 so far.  My actual earnings is so paltry that (Banker) NPY laughs and wonder why I even mention it. I’m excited to be be a part of the growth…

We are rich… in car seats!

Yesterday, someone offered me a car seat her kids had outgrown. “No!” I scoffed. Not because I mind a hand-me-down but I told her that we have five car seats already and only one kid. Come to think of it, we have six car seats and this is how it happened … Graco Snugride Clickconnect…

Nellie’s starter bundle

As the end of the year approaches, I’m trying to clear out as many of my blog post drafts as possible. Like this one! I actually made this purchase back in February. Seemingly at PNE every year and every one of the numerous home & garden shows at BC Place, there is a Nellie’s kiosk….

My awesome Sash Bag

(I started drafting this post in March 2017, a couple of months after I got my Sash bag.) I watched what I’ll call the “OG video” which I saw on Facebook, noodled just a bit on the price (I’m cheap) and took the plunge. To date, the OG video is the one with the most…

My favourite addition to the mall below my work: Saje

Let me say that I will feel it keenly then I no longer work in an office tower that is above a good mall. Saje joined the roster of shops within the last year and it’s a great addition in my opinion. It’s one thing to read the fantastic marketing copy about every blend and…
