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

As a result, my hair is fried to shit. (Okay, it’s not THAT bad…but it’s bad.) Let’s go back to last year this time when I had beautiful, healthy … Continue reading How Powder Room D Wigs are Saving my Hair
Her name’s Brassy Lassy. (Okay no, her name’s actually Andrea, but we love calling her Brassy.) We’ve known Brassy for a couple of years now, from attending the same markets on the weekends. We’re SO PROUD of her for opening her own storefront in downtown St. John’s. Just walking into the store does good for your soul. Spend five minutes in there and you’ll swear … Continue reading There’s A New Girl Downtown.
