Echoic clacking of heels dispersing flurries around the pavement, the only accompanying noise is the breeze sending hollows through drainpipes. This colder season has proven to be more inviting this time around, with rain replacing the much-debated snowfall of last winter. With the darkest day of the year behind us, we can look forward to cozy knitwear without the bulk of a puffy jacket.
There are two groups of people around January 1: the people who make New Year’s Resolutions, and the people who don’t. Now is the time of year where people are wishing each other well for 2018, and where people are posting memes about everyone’s inability to maintain resolutions. I have heard the argument that a new year is plainly arbitrary. Why make changes on New Year’s instead of any other time?
Ever feel like you’re always venturing over the bridge to get to the cute coffee shops? There are definitely a few local ones that will always have our hearts, but the new & instagrammable tend to be downtown – not to mention there are just more options on the other side of the Fraser. So when an adorable, well lit, well caffeinated cafe opened up in Clayton you bet we were stoked!
Last week, the only way to enjoy some snow was to head up to the hills (unbeknownst to us, the snow was coming to the valley) so we packed up our things and headed to Grouse Mountain for a snowy, winter shoot! There’s not much us BC girls love more than some pretty white lights amongst the backdrop of snow…
Visiting the Langley Animal Protection Society is always such a treat for us – of course it’s fun to play and cuddle with the animals and get to know a little of their personalities. With that being said, it’s always slightly heartbreaking to hear the stories of how & why each animal ended up at LAPS, from being found as strays to being given up by families, every animal has their own story. What each pet has in common is their desire to be loved and to find their forever homes. If you’re interested in any of the animals below please give LAPS a call at 604.857.5055 and maybe you can bring home a new furry friend this holiday season!
Vancouver has been a bit of a mystery this year, abandoning our Three Seasons of Rain agenda for prolonged winters, humid summers, and an almost nonexistent autumn. It seems as though the leaves had just begun to fall when the flurries of frozen rain decided they wanted to fall too. Luckily, fall fashion (the most wondrous and cozy styles of the year!) is made for such uncommitted weather.

My Danish friends introduced me to the concept of “hygge” (pronounced something along the lines of “hoo-guh”) seven years ago. I fell in love with the concept immediately after they explained it to me. Originating in Denmark, hygge has no perfect English translation. It is described as a feeling, or an experience. It is about cultivating an atmosphere of coziness. It is about having a safe haven from which to hide from the stresses of life. I can guess that you, my fellow Westerners, fully understand these life stresses. Our society is ravaged by busy-ness and consumed by work, activities, and tasks. If you’re anything like me, you need some hygge in your life. Read on to find some tips and tricks to fostering that cozy, hygge feeling.
New location, new neighbourhood, new faces & new memories – a year ago we opened Hunni’s Coquitlam and we haven’t looked back!
Simple, neutral, sometimes a bit avant-garde. Minimalism is dominating our social media screens, and shaping our creative outlets to redefine what constitutes as artistic. Art can now take the shape of a lonesome footstool by a sheet of white walls and be understood as a concept. As a result of the popularization of the neutral aesthetic, minimalist fashion has been allowed to diverge into multitudes of style variations and continue to be understood as minimalism. I have defined this typology into four categories: High Street, Active/Casual, Posh, and Artist; however, these categories are just a loose reference to gain a better understanding of the variety!
