Trippin’ | Las Vegas, Kind of

If I went to Vegas for 24 hours, but didn’t leave the hotel once, can I still say I went to Vegas? I flew there (without either of my babies, which was perhaps the highlight of the entire weekend!). Spent some quality time by the pool (not at the peaceful one pictured above, but the […]

Pinstagram | Pink sofas and red suits

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Seating arrangement. My midcentury Danish chairs that replaced the sofa that used to sit under that window + a blush sofa that could replace anything it wished to. In bloom. My desk looks like spring + so does Rachel de […]

Wear/Where | Metals and Pastels

Add metallics to any old thing and you have instant glamour. Mix in some pastels and you have the most winningest of winning combinations. Wear: Karen Walker One Splash sunglasses. Where: The extraordinarily cool Shugaa Dessert Bar in Bangkok, which is inspired by sugar crystals and, just like sugar itself, something I can’t get enough of.

Pinstagram | Fuchsia couches and blue mountains

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Talking trends on a big red couch at Global BC (watch my trend segment here) + a modern fuchsia couch I’d love in my living room. Baby style. A leopard print look from a kids’ trend spread I styled + […]

Trippin’ | 24 Hours in Toronto

People are always shocked that I’d never been to Toronto. And I suppose it is weird. I’ve travelled a fair share, I’m as Canadian as a loonie and I’ve passed through Pearson Airport a lot, but I’d never actually been to the city itself. Until my friends at Canadian Tire turned me into a little Christmas […]

Put a Pin in it | Kid & Coe

The Anthology’s Put a Pin in it series does what it can to fuel your obsession with Pinterest. I love the concept behind Kid & Coe — it’s like airbnb but with baby gates, high chairs and toy chests. I haven’t yet stayed in any of their homes but boy, do they make me want […]

Diary | Glamping > Camping

Camping is fun when you do it for real. (Especially if you’re on the stunningly beautiful Oregon Coast.) Turns out, camping’s also fun when you fake it in studio. I loaded up my station wagon with luxe camping essentials (hello campfire waffle irons!) and camped out at CTV Morning Live. Watch the clip (or re-watch […]

Setting Up Camp

Bright and early Thursday, August 8th I’ll be on CTV Morning Live discussing one of my favourite subjects: camping. But not the kind of instant oatmeal-eating camping you did as a kid. I’ll be armed with glamping necessities like a portable espresso machine, a hand-cranked blender and a stove that charges your iPhone. You know […]

Pinstagram | Hiking Barefoot

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Coulda woulda shoulda. An outfit I would wear and an outfit I did wear (with a bracelet c/o of Sarah Cameron and a clutch made of a vintage Bay blanket c/o Identity). Hiking buddies. We couldn’t find hiking boots […]

Trippin’ | Maui on the Wild Side

Of all the different types of writing I do, travel writing is one of my very favourites. Why? Well, because it means hiking, sailing, and spa-ing constitute work. (Diving would be on that list too, except I have a passenger who prevents me from doing such things at the moment.) In my latest piece for The Province I […]
