Due to COVID-19, I have transitioned to mainly working from home.  The first outfit here was on my last official day going to the gallery to work.  I am not really sure what this is going to mean for the blog (which is the least of my worries, trust me), but I will keep sharing my daily looks on Instagram so please follow me over there if you are interest!

I hope you are all staying healthy and safe,

Hi everyone!  First of all, I'm sorry that half of these photos are blurry.  Second of all, how are you?

I'm good, my skin has been clearing up this week so I am feeling better about that, and good timing, Project Skin MD is having an Acne Event later this month!  I've booked a 60-minute appointment which includes: A full acne consultation, a 20-minute MAX+LED treatment to kill P. acnes bacteria ($95 value) and a15ml SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense ($55 value), all for $55!

I had a really wonderful facial at Project Skin MD last year and they have a great reputation, so I'm excited to see them again.

Hi everyone!  How are you?

I'm good, my brows have healed after last week's waxing, but man my skin was terrible this week!  I'm not sure what it was, maybe my retinol, but in addition to multiple new large zits popping up on my chin DAILY, my skin was dry, patchy and flaky.  It was SUPER FUN let me tell you.  It seems to be improving now, fingers crossed I'm not jinxing myself by saying that.

I don't know if I talked about it on here or just IG Stories, I must have, but J.Crew Factory came out with a new style of flats called the Marina.  They are a basic pointy toe flat in leather, and you know I am all about good black & neutral flats, so I ordered both colours, plus the cute cap-toe colourway when they were 50% off + free shipping.  They arrived Wednesday night so I wore them Thursday (you can see them below in the last outfit) and did a little try-on/review on my Stories Friday AM.

Hi everyone!  What are you up to this weekend?

We have been taking it easy, watching a lot of HGTV and reading things on the internet.  Today I think we might go to Home Depot (if you're new here, I hate it there!) to grab a few annoying things and look at bathroom countertops and closet doors.

My eyebrows were getting out of control and I forgot to make an appointment on Thursday or Friday, so yesterday I had them done when I was getting my nail polish changed because I didn't want to wait until Tuesday to go to my regular brow wax place.  I love my nail place because they are fast and cheap (it's totally no frills) but I will not go there again to get waxed - my eyebrows are still red and sore and she took off more than my regular lady does.  Also, they asked twice if I wanted waxing or threading and I said waxing - which she started with, but then she did threading at the end as well!  Which actually I've never had done, but I found it more painful than waxing and am thinking that is why I am still red and sore?  Anyways, just a little cautionary tale - don't cheat on your waxer if you have a good one!!  BTW if you are local to Vancouver, my regular gal is Olga at Voka Deka :)

Happy belated Valentine's Day & I hope you get to enjoy a long weekend this weekend!

T & I usually make a fancy dinner at home for Valentine's Day, and this year it was fancy-ish but also super easy!  We had burrata, fresh bread & crackers, and pre-made meatballs that we just had to heat up in tomato sauce.  We also opened a bottle of wine from Blasted Church that we bought last summer; you can only buy it at the winery so we were saving it for a special occasion.
T loves chocolate mousse and I love baking but have never made mousse before, so I asked him if we wanted me to try and make it for Valentine's Day dessert and he said 'why don't you just buy it?' LOL!  So that made it even easier for me!  We exchanged cards, and he bought me a heart pendant for my Melanie Auld Adorned necklace 💗.

We kind of knocked off all the plans on our weekend list yesterday, so I'm not sure what we're going to get up for the rest of the weekend!  T was at a friend's playing board games yesterday, and I went to look at stone for our bathroom counter, and shower fixtures once again.  Then I went downtown to exchange my J.Crew pants (see last week's post for details!) and buy some more dry shampoo from Sephora.  While I was downtown I stopped by the Vancouver Art Gallery to see the Cindy Sherman show, and then made my way back over to Kits for some hot yoga!

Hi everyone, happy February!

It snowed again this week and while it's since melted, it still feels like we have a lot more winter ahead of us.

What is everyone up to this weekend?  We don't really have any plans but I am excited to watch the Oscars on Sunday (or Monday)!  Last year we watched them at a bar and T won the ballot contest (he had the most right answers + the tie-breaking question of how long the show ran for)!  That was really fun so we may do it again ... we'll see!

We've seen most of the major films nominated except for Little Women, Judy, Harriet, Pain & Glory, Richard Jewell and A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood.  Okay that sounds like a lot but it's less than the ones we have seen, I swear!

Hi everyone!  How are you?

T and I had our 6 year wedding anniversary on Wednesday, and decided to celebrate by going to Harrison Hot Springs this weekend!  We haven't been in years but we've had a great time every time we've been there before, and we love a good hot tub (especially in the winter!) so we're excited for that, as well as massages!

Hi everyone!  How are you?

Vancouver was hit with a snow storm this week, so things got a little crazy!  Since historically we have a warmer climate, the city has never been fully prepared for when we get snow.  There just aren't enough snow plows for the whole city, and they always seem to be deployed half a day late.  Our public transit isn't properly equipped for snow, either, so the buses are always backed up, late, and / or stuck because they can't get up hills.  Our Sky Train (comparable to a subway system, but the majority is above ground) system is OK in the snow, but if it gets too icy it's out of commission.  Needless to say, this week a bit of a disaster for getting around!  Luckily I live close to work, the gym, and a small grocery store, so I was OK!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to 2020!

I hope you all had a great holiday break.  T & I went to the Okanagan for a week over Christmas which was lovely and relaxing.  There isn't a lot to do there so we spent most of our time just hanging out with family eating, drinking, reading and doing puzzles.  We made & decorated Star Wars sugar cookies with my sister's family and then went to see Rise of Skywalker; we drove around on Christmas Eve looking at all the houses lit up; we had Christmas brunch at my parent's house and dinner at my Aunt's (I made caramel apple upside down cake for dessert!); we watched old movies on Boxing Day; went wine tasting and then did karaoke at our local ski hill for my cousin's wife's birthday, and then came back to Vancouver for the last 5 days of the holidays!

The day after we got back, T had plans with friends so I went downtown to return a few Cyber Week purchases (this, this and these), and to look for some jeans at Nordstrom since I had a couple of gift cards.  I also wanted to try on these boots, but they didn't have them in stock.  I tried on these ones instead and really liked them, but they weren't on sale so were about twice as much, and I was concerned about not being able to wear socks since the side cut-out is so low.  One of the reasons I would choose a boot over a flat is because you can wear socks with boots which equals warmer feet!

I ended up buying this pair of jeans by Mother and Nordstrom hemmed them for me for free.  I wore them last weekend and so far they are great!  I sized down one size in these.

I worked on January 2 and 3 but this week was my full first week back!
