A Day in the City

It’s hard to believe that the weather lately has been so frigid cold. Last month, we’ve had days in the 60’s where some light layering was enough to keep you comfortable. Luckily, the stars and moon aligned when my sisters came to visit back in February and the weather was just that— perfect in the 60’s! I … More A Day in the City

Life and Lattes

Hello friends! I hope the New Year has been treating you well so far. My life has been unbelievably busy but I am not complaining! I’ve been so blessed to finally found what seems to be the job of my dreams. Ever since joining J. Jill as Art Director, I look forward to going into the office … More Life and Lattes

The Mini-Luxuries

Isn’t life about the little things? The simple touches, the small acts of kindness, the subtle ways to express that you care- they’re all a big part of our happiness. For me, it’s the little quiet moments that I can steal for myself- listening to French Jazz, blogging, polishing my nails, flipping catalogs, sipping lattes, … More The Mini-Luxuries

My Cafe Station

There is this special little nook in my dining room that gives me the warm fuzzies every morning. My cafe station is where I make the foamiest cup of decaf latte to start the day. I don’t drink coffee to wake me up, I drink it for the taste and experience. My sister who takes her coffee … More My Cafe Station

Perhaps we all realize that when fall arrives the holidays will soon follow. Autumn is my most favorite time of the year so inside I’m just gleaming. … More #CoffeeTalk

Vietnamese Ca Phe

Lots of hugs, kisses, late night coughing, tissues, and snots! Yes, it’s not always pretty and dainty.  It’s been really gloomy around here … More Vietnamese Ca Phe

Thoughts

The weather outside is super gloomy and the sky is prepping to give us a heavy, unrelenting downpour. The only thing I feel like doing when Ms. Zoey finally snoozes is to have some ME TIME enjoying a frothy hot cup of cappuccino while reading the latest gossip section of the newspaper. Perfectly described in … More Thoughts

Espresso Friday

Happy Friday! Have you gotten your coffee fix yet for the day? I LOVE the smell and taste of coffee but can’t stand the rapid palpitations that come along with it. So my solution has always been decaf coffee.  The weather here has been sort of an anomaly for this time of the yr. 50’s … More Espresso Friday

Blenz Coffee

Similar to Starbucks in the US, Blenz Coffee dominated the streets of Vancouver as the ‘go to’ coffee shop. We frequent this cafe to rest, enjoy a cup of joe, and connect to the web. Blenz @ Steveston.  Would LOVE to know how to make art designs on cappuccinos.  Cappuccino. Forgot to request for decaf. … More Blenz Coffee
