About to Fall

September 22, 2016
Wearing Evernew in Vancouver Chinatown

It’s always a scary feeling when you’re about to fall.  When you’re about to fall in love, when you’re about to fall out of a window, and when summer is about to “fall” into Autumn. Falling is something that, as it turns out, can be just as beneficial as it is potentially life-threatening. Sometimes you have to fall in order to realize your strength in rising again, and often you have to fall in love to realize how wonderful life can be.…

Entre You Ship

People often ask me what my favorite part about being an entrepreneur is, and when presented with this question, I always immediately know my answer: It’s the ability to be myself – in every capacity of the word – every single day. It could just be myself, and a few hundred thousand hand-selected others, but I’ve never found myself in a job. While maybe it’s just the rebel in me always encouraging me to go the route less traveled, I’ve…

Follow Me to Versailles

September 8, 2016
Follow me through Versailles

Versailles Palace in Paris, or rather just outside of Paris, is certainly a site that’s either on your bucketlist or something that’s been proudly ticked off already. As it should be! We took a trip to Versailles Palace one day in Paris and could hardly believe all of the beautiful sites. My favorite part was the Hall of Mirrors, aside from the brief but amazing nap we took in the grass of one of the gardens. Here are some of…

24 Hours in Paris

September 7, 2016
24 Hours in Paris Palais-Royal

Paris is a city, a huge city, where you could easily spend the rest of your life and not get bored. But, that’s not always a luxury bestowed on international travellers, and thus, I decided to figure out what to do – and what to see – with just 24 hours in Paris. This may seem like a failure waiting to happen, and for a moment I thought perhaps I’d just stroll aimlessly, but then Michela of Hotel Adele et Jules…

Europe 2016

September 6, 2016
Amsterdam wearing Vici dolls

3.5 weeks, 4 countries, and a whole lot of love.  August was a great month, and I’m pretty stoked to have had the chance to tick off both Amsterdam and the Greek Islands from my to-travel list. I learned a lot about my (most up-to-date) self, especially during the last week of the trip that I spent alone in Budapest and Paris, but mostly I think I realized that (a) I’m older now and (b) things are different, in the…

Taking photos on the Liberty Bridge Budapest

I had no idea this green bridge that connected Buda and Pest across the Danube would be come my life’s greatest happy place, nor the place I’d long to for months after departing. During my residence in Budapest in 2014, I spent three months frequenting this bridge, getting to know each of its surfaces – particularly the bumpy part that would provide grips as I climbed atop and made comfort on its beams to watch sunset (almost daily). I grew…

Lookout at St Stephens Basilica in Budapest

Today I finally, FINALLY!, climbed to the lookout at St. Stephen’s Basilica and got to witness a brand new vantage point of not only my favourite square in the world, but also a beautiful view of the entire city. I’ve been to the square about a million times, and finally decided to make the trek up this morning, as it was perfectly overcast for photo taking. I’d highly recommend a trip up to the top of the basilica on your…
