It’s a jungle out there. And in here. I spent the last few days shooting a spring style series for The Province at Metropolis at Metrotown. In this particular shot we’re shooting part of a very jungly, very tropical, very floral spread. There will be eight in total, all of them running in April.
I haven’t even counted how many pieces we shot. But it was a lot. Trust. And I can’t wait to see the finished product!

I don’t have a crystal ball. But I do have runway photos. And they can tell me a lot about your future, or at least your closet’s future.
I stopped by Global BC on Friday to talk about some of the biggest trends for summer and pre-fall (my favourite non-season season). My favourites? Long ladylike skirts, short culottes and luxe lace. I see a lot of them in your future.
Thanks for having me, Global Television and Metropolis at Metrotown! And thanks, Jaclyn, for the photo!

Ugh. Health food snobs are the worst. Unless they make you chocolate peanut butter pies and more almond milk smoothies than you can shake a bag of nuts at. My sister is one such health food snob. In fact, she’s the @healthfoodsnob on Instagram, sharing photos and recipes of meals that are delicious, nutritious and often ambitious (at least by my lazy chef standards).
Drink it in, friends!

I love photography. Love, love, love it. So when I spoke at SFU’s Social Media Boot Camp 2 a few weeks ago, I included a few of my favourite photography tips.
Turns out, they inspired at least one attendee. Donna Mei-Ling Park tweeted these pictures afterwards with a note that made my picture-loving heart soar.
Love the shots, Donna, thanks for sharing!

So far 2014 is looking good. And it would look even better if you took down your Kitty Cats of Greece 2013 calendar and hung one of these in its place.
Clockwise from top left: Weeds botanical calendar by Amy Sullivan (which I have hanging in my kitchen), a bird-print calendar out of New Zealand, and a downloadable design from My Scandinavian Home in case you feel like DIYing.

I don’t believe in miracle products. But I do believe in this.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is as close to miraculous as I’ve seen an oil come. I lather the stuff on. And I happened to run out right before Kiehl’s released a limited-edition version. A partnership with Alicia Keys and Keep a Child Alive, proceeds fund life-saving HIV treatment and care for children living with HIV in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and India.
Miracle product indeed.

Hope your day is filled with all sorts of crazy family fun and a ridiculous amount of turkey/perogis/whatever your family stuffs their faces with on a day like today.
