Train Tracks & My New KeepCup

For the first time this Winter, Vancouver finally got some snow. Of course, it was basically all gone by the time I left the house but it was still nice to see a few smatterings on the ground. Apparently there will be more on the way in the coming weeks!

I know a number of you were wondering what my Miu Miu Mini Bow looks like when worn, so I hope these pictures help (for reference, I'm 5'5"). As you can see, it is fairly small but I tend to prefer this size for my weekend day bags.

Top: Wilfred Free / Leggings: H&M / Leather Jacket: Mackage
Ballet Flats: Bloch (here) / Purse: Miu Miu (here) / Beanie: TNA
Necklace: House of Harlow 1960 (here) / Ring: Michael Kors (here)


And how cute is my new KeepCup? As a hot beverage lover, I'm always adding reusable cups to my collection and I love how the KeepCup is different from your typical travel mug. It's "barista standard" because it replicates standard takeaway sizes and fits under the heads of most espresso machines. That means baristas don't have to make your drink in a paper cup first before pouring it into your travel mug. Plus they are completely customizable, with a variety of sizes  (mine's a large) and colour combinations (I love this one).

KeepCups have been available in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK for a couple of years, and they've only recently been introduced in North America. If you're interested in getting one for yourself, you can buy them online (at www.keepcup.com and Amazon.com) or find them in certain coffee retailers and select Whole Foods stores.

  2. I really like the colour of the miu miu! It looks like a good size for you :) It would probably look ridiculous on me since i'm 3 inches taller lol.

  3. That's nice you got some snow, it's been a warmer than average winter here in Cali too. I love your look in these pics. That purse is such a cute color!

  4. I really like that cup - and you look great in those photos. However, I couldn't help but laugh at a certain cup from many years back from Amy's Loonie Toonie Town. Haha.

  18. Agh I said it before, but seriously so jealous of your bag! It's adorable, and you look lovely in these pics. Also loving the KeepCup, I really need a new reusable cup and I love that these are actually cute and good for those of us who usually get our coffee from coffee shops!

  22. Your mini bow looks even sweeter all styled up- and I love that you paired it with such an edgy ensemble. The contrast between the girly bag and your toque/leather jacket outfit is beautifully striking.

    I'm going to have to investigate the KeepCup, it sounds brilliant. My current travel mug has a very unfortunate leak, and it's about time to retire it. Thanks for the tip on where to get a new one!

  55. i luv that miumiu purse~~~its so pretty~~~
    as far as Milani stuff goes, i live in toronto, but the wal-mart close to my house actually started to sell Milani products, all the baked eyeshadow and blushes and lippies too...i dont know about Vancouver though, you probably have to check a few wal-mart b4 u find one or maybe look for actually Canadian retailer of the brand first???hope this helps
