LAPS BC: Meet our new furry friends

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!

For The Love Of Hygge

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.

Creating an Aesthetic: Minimalist Fashion

            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!

Back to School Lookbook

The forthcoming of the study season leaves a bittersweet taste for those of us who had little time to relish in late completion of heavy deadlines. Though, going back to school is almost a relief, in the bleak sense of routine comfort. One of the major advantages, however, is the year’s coziest fashion!After months of stacking up on overcoats and turtlenecks, it’s nearly time to put them to use.
