Instagram Lately

Too much time has passed since I last did one of these posts so I thought I'd share some more iPhone snapshots. A little bit of style, some recent purchases, some fun things I've been up to, and of course a whole lot of food!

A night out, wearing my Mackage "Ava" Coat (this one is similar)

Warby Parker Zagg glasses in "Tennessee Whiskey"... unfortunately they didn't fit me well so I returned them

I've been super into prints lately, especially chain print

Some new Sorel winter boots (here in darker brown)

 Simulated skydiving at Fly Zone - so much fun (though I totally look like a chipmunk in the goggles)

Was finally able to bring out my ice skates for the first time this year

Chicken karaage at Guu, one of my fave restaurants for Japanese tapas

Brunch at the Blue Fox Cafe in Victoria

Dim Sum = major comfort food for me

No Korean meal is complete without soju!

Take-out treats from True Confections

Love these Starbucks "Love" cups

    1. It's great for people who are afraid of heights because you are confined to a wind tunnel and there's no danger of crashing to the ground!

  8. I love the photos! The chain print scarf is really pretty and I love dim sum too. I've been craving to go for authentic Chinese dim sum for the longest. Simulated flying looks like a lot of fun! I think I'd be too much of a wuss to do it though :P

  9. Sometimes I feel like all I instagram is food! LOL.
    It's the most addicting app ever, I just wanna whip out my phone and take a picture of everything (which happens to include every one of me meals...).

    So jealous that you went ice skating, I can never find people to go with -__-. Haha

    1. My Instagram is 90% food... it's SO BAD. People know they can't start eating until I take photos, haha!

  10. Your Mackage coat is so pretty. I'd never heard of it until a friend who just LOVED the label bought one of their coats a few years ago and the quality was just so great.

    Ack, I can't even look at soju without wanting to throw up. I had the worst experience with it and I'm forever scarred :(

    1. Agh, that's the reason I can't drink white wine or beer. Soju is not my fave but I like mixing regular and lemon soju together on occasion.

  11. I miss Starbucks dates with you... I wanted one of those cups so bad but obviously I cannot get one. I also wish I had instagramed Guu with you! These are good. Chat soon <3

  23. I love how instagram captures and transforms a moment! Those starbucks cups were really cool. Love the ice skates. I never learned, but enjoy ice skating. And those sunny side up eggs, bacon and toast look delish.
