To be honest, I wasn't a huge fan of The Pike Place Market (maybe I'm just a snob having worked at Granville Island), but I sure liked the beer at the Pike Brewery!
Obligatory shot of the Gum Wall
So many anxious parents trying to get their kids to stay away from it hehehe
Big Ferris Wheel!
Standing from the market dock area, looks like fun!
Drinks + Dinner at The Honey Hole
Most Puzzling Parking Meter Ever!
We stood trying to figure out if this ancient parking meter was a joke on tourists for forever
Lunch at the zany Cafe Racer!
Such a fun, divey little place.
Breakfast at Top Pot Donuts!
Something that the States has happening that I totally wish would happen more in Canada is the abundance of great donuts!
Out for a walk
Gah I love this skirt--it's United Colours of Bennetton, but I got it at a thrift store for four dollars!
Beignets for Brunch at Odd Fellows
Wow SO GOOD--like I said, we need more donuts and beignets happening in Canada like now
Brunch at Oddfellows
Fun art in the park
in Capitol Hill
Fountain in Capitol Hill Park
This was a strange but nice little park
Happy after brunch at Odd Fellows
First stop: MOD Pizza
we really, really love pizza and were starving upon arrival so MOD it was!
About a month ago my partner and I went to Seattle to celebrate our 5 year anniversary! He had never been, I had been before but not for a long time. To be honest, I wasn’t all that excited about it at first–I heard Seattle is a lot like Vancouver so I was ‘meh whatever’ about it (though looking forward to getting away of course!). But boy, was I ever wrong! Seattle was awesome! We spent most of our time in Capitol Hill, and it was such a blast. We were lucky to have chilly but sunny weather, and I can’t wait to get back there soon!
Gotta have an ice cream stop while on a road trip. I don't even remember where this is.
This is a big deal: I don't drive, I don't even have my full license yet but I drove for a full 30 minutes while in Calgary!
I have a personal style blog. This is what we bloggers do, chill on curbs and ponder life :p
What I wore to the wedding I attended
The beautiful stained glass from the church. Is it inappropriate to take pictures from inside the church?
Here are a few pictures from my recent trip to Calgary. I drove for the first time in a year, went to a beautiful wedding, and generally explored my second-favourite Canadian city. Also included are several fashion blogger shots ’cause you know, I’ve been a blogger for years now and every outfit is a photo op….and I’m not sorry.
The title of this diary comes from the song “Rich” by Cosmo Sheldrake feat. Anna Roo, it’s a perfect summer song. Listen to it here.
So the other day me and the other CF editors Katie and Lydia had a day on the town. We all ended up wearing trench coats, and resembled a very lady-like girl gang of sorts. We spent the day wandering all over the city (East Van and all over Downtown) complete with seeing The Great Gatsby and an all-ladies comedy night, and other miscellaneous fun. Naturally, we took a bunch of pictures. Here are the best ones from my camera (or rather, phone).
