Thrifted Thursdays: 02.23.17

The draft of this post is being brought to you by my current in-flight indecision on whether I want to watch “Arrival” or “Lion”. This flight from Vancouver to Montréal is around five hours long, so I could probably watch both, now that I think about it. We’re down to the short flights. YVR to YUL. YUL to home. The worst of it is done: … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 02.23.17

 Thrifted Thursdays: 02.16.17

So we recently spent a couple days down in Hobart, Tasmania. We were 18,000 km away from home in Newfoundland & Labrador. (How much further can one actually get on the globe? Geography experts–let us know, haha). When walking off the plane in Hobart, we immediately noticed the temperature change. The fleece leggings were back on! We were froze in the early mornings going around … Continue reading  Thrifted Thursdays: 02.16.17

Sydney Harbour Views

Can you remember the moment you discovered there’s more in the world than you thought? I can’t tell you exactly how old I was, but I distinctly remember seeing the Sydney Opera House on tv when I was little–an episode of Sesame Street maybe?–and realizing that it was “elsewhere”. Of all the pictures I’ve seen and descriptions I’ve read about foreign cities and countries, Sydney … Continue reading Sydney Harbour Views

Thrifted Thursday: 02.02.17

We’re currently en route from winter in Newfoundland to summer in Australia…via Vancouver, haha. It made packing a single backpack a little tricky, outfit-wise. After one evening in Vancouver, we realized we didn’t bring enough layers with us. So we got up the next day and headed to our favourite Vancity secondhand treasure troves: Value Village and Front & Company. We were saved by Free … Continue reading Thrifted Thursday: 02.02.17

Thrifted Thursdays: 01.26.17

It feels pretty sweet when you score designer duds at thrifty prices. Which is what happened this past week, thanks to the super-duper flea market-esque sale Model Citizens had on the go. As much as we drool over what walks down the runways at Fashion Week, our lifestyle just doesn’t support that kinda price tag, haha. (We’ve actually walked away from a couple dresses at … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 01.26.17

Thrifted Thursdays: 01.20.17

We spent much of Tuesday afternoon browsing the thrift shops in St. John’s. We’re typically rushed on Tuesdays, since we’re often going here and there picking up trunk-loads of butter, flour, and icing sugar. We had some extra time this week, so we spent it browsing the secondhand racks literally hanger by hanger. What usually happens is whoever’s wearing the least complicated outfit is on … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 01.20.17
