When I woke up to rain on the window yesterday morning, I did not feel the usual dreariness that one feels when it’s raining. First off, I am an unconditional rain lover, and secondly, it reminded me that FALL is just around the corner!! Fall is by far my favorite season. While walking the leaf covered street near my new home, I couldn’t help but get excited for the season to come. I’m in love with fireplaces, riding boots, the never-ending color changing of leaves, knitted sweaters and scarves and hot apple cider. So, I guess you could say I overly enjoyed browsing the windows of shops yesterday and relaxing in a café with my favorite author combined with a steamy cappuccino.

Putting all the above aside, I am an eager fall fashion lover. I have been enthusiastically browsing fall fashion on the web and in magazines the past couple of weeks. I have put together a small wish list that I’d like to share with everyone! Above are just a few items that are currently making me drool. Enjoy♥

Happy Friday Everyone!

Every week when we get closer to our beloved weekend, things tend to get a little hectic. We don’t always have time to stop for that latte or double-double. I recently purchased Starbucks VIA Ready Brew for the girl on the go. I love it! I picked the caramel iced coffee flavor which is perfect for summer. Just pour, add water and top off with  ice cubes. Voila!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of accommodating a couple of my friends who journeyed all the way from Australia and Calgary. I like to think that they brought the sun back with them because it was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l for the duration of their stay! Our weekend started off with a delightful dinner held at Rodney’s Oyster House in Yaletown. In the earlier times, Yaletown was an industrialized area complete with rail yards and warehouses. This area is now filled block to block with shops and restaurants and is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Vancouver. Rodney’s is located on the South side of Hamilton Street, between Davie St and Drake St. When approaching the restaurant, you’ll know you have the right place because of all the laughter and lip-smacking you can hear! Designed to look like the inside of a fishing boat, Rodney’s ambience is cozy and fun. We were placed on the upper level at a table for 6 and were served by a very attractive waiter (another bonus of the restaurant; very handsome male servers 🙂 Our table ordered servings of mussels and different types of oysters for dinner and couldn’t have been more satisfied.
