Vanc-OOOO-ver

ZOMG PEOPLE. Worst blogger of the YEAR award. I was SO EXCITED to move here, get all my shit together, take tons of pictures of me in my city element, showin off my style. Have I done that? No.  Life is what happens when you're busy making plans? HAH. Life is what happens when you're trying to get shit done, not planning it out.

I'm all moved into my quant little apartment on the 13th floor (sketchy?) in downtown Vancouver, furniture is all set up, but there are no decorations. I'm in the process of "creating a piece" for our bedroom wall, that should be done soon and will only take one more run to Michael's for supplies. My beautiful, talented friend who goes by the name of Mazoo gave my hubby and I two beautiful pieces of hers, so stay tuned for pictures of that once we decide where to put them. I've just been too busy to decorate.

I've ALSO been too busy to take any pictures of any outfits ever. As soon as we arrived, I was too preoccupied with furniture shopping to document my style (which did NOT falter under the pressure of a new city, by the way.. I kept it poppin'). Then after all the furniture arrived, there were drinks with some new-found friends and some old newly-found friends. Shawna from Serpentine Streets showed me how vegetarian and vegan food can be amazing; the two of us and our boy toys ate at a restaurant called Naam. I was so happy to discover this little thing called miso gravy. Everyone must try. Vancouver has been real and I'm loving every second of it.

Oh, and I guess maybe I should elaborate on my purpose to come to Vancouver in the first place: Blanche Macdonald. Needless to say I'm in love. Mother always said to never love something that can't love you back, such as an object or whatever, but eff that. Blanche will love me back, I know it. We were made for each other. I'm only on day 3 and it's more stimulating to me than my four years of my undergrad degree. So far we're only taking notes and blow drying mannequins' hair, but it's so exciting and new to me. The one down side is the uniform: black button up shirt, black dress pants, black closed toe shoes. Although unsatisfactory, I'm fairly confident in my ability to accessorize, so I can make it work.

HOPEFULLY I'll have some exciting photos for you of my cool new life. However, with all that said, I still miss my friends and my home.

For now, here's some photos from the ol IPhone.

  2. Blanche Macdonald was actually the school I was thinking about going to before I decided to move to Halifax instead. This post made me super jealous of your new adventure!

    And as per usual... I love your cat. Ha ha.
