Fashion and Puppies and Charity! Oh my!

Bergdorf Goodman really tugs at your heartstrings with this delightful and especially sweet Christmas video. Seriously, puppies and fashion for a good cause? Genius.

Vogue, Back in the Day

I know these photos are on every fashion blog right now, but I just can't help myself. Besides, if you're anything like me, you'll be happy for a chance to look at them again. Old Vogue covers always make me nostalgic for the glamorous eras they represent. I actually have one hanging in my house, a print I scored from the Alameda flea a while back (see it here). Back then, each cover was different and a work of art. They were innovative, interesting and tested boundaries, all while being absolutely beautiful. What's interesting is that the more rights and independence women have gained over the decades, the more formulaic the covers have gotten.

Rumour Has It/Someone Like You

I'm a bad blogger, but hopefully this amah-zing video will make up for it. I've had it on repeat since I saw it last night. Still trying to figure out how to balance work, writing and this amazing new project I'm working on. Hopefully I'll be able to blog more regularly soon!

Pining for Something I Can't Have

There are many things that you can find in every city you go to, no matter what part of the world you're in. But there are things that still remain exclusive to certain countries—at least for now. Unfortunately, one of those things is COS, a high street brand created by the genius' behind H&M. I've only recently discovered COS, but every time I see new looks from them, it's torture because I can't purchase them. I love the clean lines and modern edge which is all topped off by the fact that the line is delightfully affordable. Currently, they only ship to select countries in Europe, but I'm hoping and praying they'll start catering to the US market. Until then, I'll just have to satisfy my cravings with pictures...unless someone abroad wants to mail stuff to me...anyone?

And I'm Back

 What's even better than poutine? Poutine topped with duck confit. Killmenow.
Our uber luxe suite at the Hotel Georgia was an indulgent experience. Our room had its own living room, dining room and extra bathroom. Not to mention the service was incredible.
 The Bella Tower at Sushi Bella is an amazing combination of tuna and salmon over a mix of crab and avocado and secret sauce.
 Best ramen ever at Kintaro. Rich with fatty pork belly. I would go back to Vancouver just for this.
Best. Sushi. Ever. How I'm ever going to get used to SF miniscule serving sizes is beyond me.

Sorry for the long radio silence. I was in Vancouver on vacay and had no time to post. My trip was an amazing mix of catching up with one of my best friends, taking in the sights, relaxing, admiring the gorgeous city and stuffing my face with ridiculous amounts of crazy good food (we're talking the biggest and freshest Sashimi ever, the best ramen of my life and more poutine than any one person should eat). Vancouver, I will be back for more—take my word for it! Here are some of the highlights of the trip. Oh, and yes, I did get up close and personal with a beluga whale named Aurora.
