Thrifted Thursdays: 01.12.17

Spend enough time shopping at secondhand stores, and eventually thrifted finds take over your closet. That’s what has happened to us, anyways. We love getting inspired while browsing and sorting through the racks at thrift shops. It’s like a feelgood (and good-for-the-environment) treasure hunt. This year, we’re dedicating Thursday posts to looks created with secondhand clothing. We’ll even try to add in some footwear and … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 01.12.17

Christmas Shopping Done Locally

Hands up if you feel as sad as we do when local small businesses announce they’re closing down?  And it felt like we were sad more than usual in 2016. We’ve seen the downtowns of quite a number of cities–nationally and internationally. Guess what? St. John’s is still our favourite.

Rock the Shores 2016

Last weekend in Victoria was one we won’t soon forget.  We can’t believe we’re saying this, but we’re pretty glad Squamish didn’t happen this year, because we attended Rock the Shores instead. (Somewhere Jesse Boland is reading this saying “I told you so”, haha. More on Jesse Boland in a bit.) Compared to Squamish (or Osheaga) with its 5 or 6 stages, Rock the Shores … Continue reading Rock the Shores 2016
