Shopping in Park Royal West Vancouver

Ever since the most recent Park Royal South renovation in West Vancouver, this mall has become one my favorites in Vancouver. The reason for this is not only due to the variety of stores in the area, but also because of the lovely atmosphere. Here you can find yourself wandering around the Village completely (or almost) unaware of the time. My usual visit to Park Royal South involves a stop by Zara, Sephora, and J.Crew as well as a lunch…

I am very fond of flowers as I believe they give a home or an office that pleasant environment and not to mention, an amazing smell. Recently I came across Landeau.

Thanksgiving Gift Guide

With Thanksgiving slowly approaching us, I decided I would dedicate a post to this holiday. Everyone is probably getting stressed with their lists of errands to run before the holiday and gifts to get for their loved ones. Hopefully this post will inspire you. Tea. I love, love, love tea. I have tea pretty much every morning to start my day off. The other day I paid a visit to David’s Tea and they offered me a tasting of their…

“Emma” by Jane Austen

While on my summer vacation this year, I decided to take some time and read Emma, a fascinating novel by Jane Austen and I must say, it is a great piece of work. For those of you who are fond of Jane Austen’s work, you won’t be disappointed by this one. Some of the main reasons why I enjoyed this particular novel is because it is not overly dynamic and has wonderful descriptions and portrayals of the characters. Emma is a light…
