This Christmas break I received an extra special present – Julien proposed, surprising me with the most magical Vancouver engagement! To recap our love story, Julien and I dated long distance for about two years before I took the plunge and moved to Denver last spring.

4 Fixes for Denver Dry Skin

Battling Denver dry skin

I learned a lot about skincare for dry climates by dealing with Denver dry skin this past year. Last spring, I moved from the humid, rainforest of Vancouver, BC to Denver, Colorado and my skin did not like it one bit. I experienced bad breakouts and my skin was irritated. It sucked – a lot! There is nothing like moving to a new city and feeling like hiding your face. I mean, breakouts suck regardless but combining that with being outside...

Back to School Fashion

After a 5 year hiatus, I am heading back to school to complete my MBA at CU Denver. Getting back into the groove of student life has been a big shift. Nonetheless, it’s amazing to be back in a room filled with eager minds, inspiring teachers and to be part of a collective of interesting individuals looking to make an impact in the world. And it’s a lot of fun to get back to student trivialities and vocations. Which means, backpack shopping, school...

Art (indoor, outdoor, everywhere in Aspen), pool parties, hiking and the best people watching – it is always a great getaway. Highlights of this year’s trip definitely include a spur of the moment Aspen 4th 5-mile race (competing with the likes of Lance Armstrong! Man Aspen folks are fit!),  we finally made it up to Maroon Bells – which was absolutely breathtaking,...

Vancouver Sunsets and Summer Sandals

I’ve been collecting Vancouver sunsets lately. I’ve been stopped almost every evening by the breathtaking beauty of the sunsets in this city. Completely entranced, I’ve been taking note of the gift of colours each sunset offers. Sometimes blue, other times orange, pink or purple, and sometimes a mix of the entire rainbow. Inspired by the immaculate beauty that so sweetly warms my heart, I sometimes wish the sky would stay that exact colour forever. Even though I know that a brand new...
