This blog post idea has been in my mind for a couple months, but I kept putting it off. I think maybe the announcement that Fixed Coffee is soon closing its doors really put my butt in gear. The last time I bought clothes in a mall/retail chain was December 2014. I was in Sydney, Australia, and bought a NYE tank top at Cotton On. … Continue reading Local Love: 1 Blazer, 5 Looks
We live an hour from one of the World’s Most Colourful Cities. (No really. Read this, for example.) Want a specific colour in the background of your photo? There’s a rowhouse for that! This past Summer and Fall, we really got inspired. Hair and all. (Note: Jana’s red hair is a washout spray. If you’ve ever dyed your hair bright red and tried to get … Continue reading Jellybean Row
We knew our day of shooting with MJ would be fun, but we were honestly unprepared for just HOW fun. (Okay, fine, the champagne probably played a role, but we’d like to think the bubbles just enhanced the bubbles that were already there. This comparison sounded so much better in my head.)

She can even tolerate the treadmill. I just shuddered at the mere thought of getting on the treadmill. The only time I enjoy going for a walk is when there’s a … Continue reading A Lighthouse “Picnic”

The brightly coloured and feels-like-home cottage is perfectly quaint and comfortable. It’s an ideal spot for hikers, kayakers, and whalewatchers. (And people like us who just really love waking up with a view of another … Continue reading The Bunkhouse in Bay Bulls
The amount of time we’ve spent staring out the window in the past few days is a little ridiculous, haha. We admit it–we’re completely mesmerized by the Bay packed full of ice. It showed up in a steady stream over the weekend, like a parade in which only ice floats participated. (There were probably a few seals and birds, too). Yesterday morning, the Bay was … Continue reading The Ice is in.
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. Sure, the brightly coloured rowhouses and view of The Battery have something to do with … Continue reading Christmas Shopping Done Locally
