FOOD FOR THOUGHT

i got my juice on with a bottle of polish.

I’ve been hearing about the amazingly delicious yumminess of  THE JUICE TRUCK  in Gastown. And so…I just had to go by and scoop one up! Not only do they have a fantastic menu of fresh organic juices and smoothies they are a sweet bunch of peeps operating their own successful business. They are Fun, Friendly, and Fantastic  (3 of my favourite F words that I expect in a business, aside from the obviously F word that I won’t say). They take the time to share with you their story and will even create something a little special for your health needs. Less banana, more kale please? I love my greens. Everytime I guzzle down a fresh juice or smoothie I automatically feel a boost of energy! I feel extra healthy and I smile.  Well I usually smile anyways…but beets make me even happier. Kale makes me hyper and spinach well…WATCH OUT! 

I think there should be a juice truck at every corner….or maybe just parked outside my apartment. And boyz! Here’s a suggestion, create a “juice truck card”…..10 juices gets you a FREE one of your choice!

Please check out this truck….I Love It. Did you have your juice today? Cause I just got juiced.

I then bought a juicy new nail RGB polish called “Sea”. – Aside from its colour, the best part of it, is it’s ingredients.  No Formaldehyde, No Toluene and No DBP. Then you ask,” Well what is it made from?” I say, “Kale and sparkles”. Hot damn! I can for sure tell you it looks dynamite on my nails and my counter top. – CS xx

Tis the season to be shop hopping.

Hello my lovelies! Ti’s the season to be shop hopping. What are your favourite stores to shop in? Strolling the streets of Vancouver and wandering into my favourite little boutiques is my weakness. I think Vancouver has some of the most amazing and unique shops to visit (and splurge in) I often shop locally and purchase from independent designers and vintage. This time of year is perfect for buying unique gifts for those you love. I always find something different and affordable cause really, at this age what do you buy for those who have everything they need? And for those who can buy their own items?…I’d say, Something small, something different, something they can use forever! Here are a few of my top favourite shops that sell unique and eclectic items by a variety of independent designers. Thank you for filling my retail therapy needs. – CS xx

What’s In Your Activity Bag?

When I’m running errands, heading to an audition, brainstorming at a meeting, or simply sitting on a blanket at the beach, I usually carry all my goodies in a big bag.  In this case it was my Nudie bag a.k.a, the “Activity Bag”.  It’s perfect for carrying around any folders, books, magazines, date books (which I am a huge fan of), ideas book, a few groceries, even my laptop.  With my bag in hand or slung over my shoulder, I can be caught reading, writing, strolling, taking pictures, working on my computer, or doodling around in my sketch book. The other day, I got home and dumped all of my goodies on the ground. I thought the dump was picture perfect. Voila! What’s in your Activity bag? – Christina xo

I also picked up this little gem at one of my favorite little boutiques, Dream in Gastown. And whaddya know! I just added it to my bag of goodies. This little charm is a perfect purse accessory.
