Used a groupon for Capstone tea place on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver. Normally about $30/person, ended up paying just $15/person. The food was good, ended up very full. Could be warmer though, I really feel like a lot of the food was just defrosted and toasted. I change my review of good food to mediocre. But the lighting there is great! I got a good photo of the set for two people. So you only get one of each item.

There's been a number of scathing reviews about how shallow and materialistic this popular new app is. Yes BUT IT'S SO GODDAMN ADDICTING! An avid follower of celebrity gossip, of course I downloaded the game once it was in the Play store. While most of my 19/20 year old friends ditched the game ("it's so boring" they repeated), I kept with it. While continually waiting for energy to recharge and tapping the screen to do things like "check makeup" (1 energy star) or "change wardrobe" (4 energy stars) can be tedious, I did get that rush of joy when I helped Kim find the gift for her mother and when I was finally promoted to the A List-- a rush of joy, I might add, similar to that of solving a difficult math equation. It's shallow and materialistic and good old fashioned celebrity junkie fun. Choosing clothes and putting on makeup naturally appeals to females.
Overall review: ♥♥♥♥♡ (4/5)

Of course everyone's been going crazy about how Orlando Bloom threw a punch at the Biebs. Granted, Bloom missed, but everyone's been giving him support for trying to do the thing about 99% of the world wishes to do (I'm allowing 1% for those diehard insane Beliebers). BEST PART OF THE VIDEO: the audience cheering. Yeah we're all smiling now Biebs. Shame though, cause earlier Biebs did do a non douchy thing--he brought a fan as a date for a make-a-wish type thing. He could give Atlas a run for his money.

I posted them on instagram as hazelnut macarons with chocolate ganache. In fact they're overbaked macarons with chocolate spread hahaha. Plus the buddies I was cooking with were like "take the photo from the side--then people can't see how bad it really is!". Future as a food photographer...

Fantastic idea i found on ig for bad ass nails. I think the jewellery is pretty nice too. Wish I could do that design but my own nails are so short and gel nails are just a hassle after a while. The design is really cute though, I have to admit

What better way to start than with food? About a year ago I found this great crepe and dessert cafe called Mimibu. Unfortunately they've stopped selling crepes, but their waffles with gelato are fantastic. They put nuts and small cake pieces in their deserts as well!
