End of Summer Snapshots

To mark today's official change in seasons, I thought I'd share some long overdue snapshots from the end of my summer back home in Vancouver. As it gets cooler by the day here in Calgary (the afternoons are warm but morning/night are freezing), I am treasuring these summer memories more and more!

Lazy beach days in my coral ruffle bikini (c/o Hapari)

Can't have summer in Vancouver without a visit to the Summer Night Market

My first time seeing the Terminal City Roller Girls in action; wish I was that hardcore

A very 90s summer outfit featuring some shorts I DIY'd from my 7 For All Mankind Cropped Dojos


One donut obviously wasn't enough since I had to go all out at Cartems Donuterie

Take me out to the ball game: Vancouver Canadians v. Yakima Bears

FORE!! Pitch & Putt at Queen Elizabeth Park

Best chocolate fondue in the city at Mink Chocolates

Stopping for a photo-op on a very long walk along the Seawall with my girl friends

Delicious home-made Greek feast & girls night with a few of my best friends

Kayaking around False Creek

My boyfriend got me tickets to see Seinfeld for my birthday!

I especially love the corn kakiage at Suika Snackbar

Coconut gelato at Kits Beach
