cubism dream

Last Sunday was absolutely gorgeous here in Vancouver. I had gone to West Van the day prior and realised how amazing it would be to take pictures from the Lion's Gate Bridge, so I figured because Sunday was sunny it was the perfect opportunity. I walked across and through Stanley Park, finally ending up on the southeast end at English Bay. There were actually kids playing in the ocean, that's how nice it was. The last two shots are looking west at sunset.

One thing I haven't had an opportunity to do much of since moving to Vancouver is go thrift/vintage shopping. I was told by a friend to check out a store called Mintage on Commercial Drive, and I must say I was not disappointed! I found this amazing Christian Dior short for only $44 and a bright satin cardigan for $5 (that's for another time). In the next place I went into I found a Levi's denim jacket for $24 and cut the sleeves off when I got back to make a vest. I coupled the two pieces and added a necklace from Forever 21 and my dark wash jeans from H&M.

So these are the unedited products of possibly the most beautiful sunset I have ever witnessed. One of the best things about living on Burnaby Mountain is that there are days where it's super cloudy in Vancouver but up here its totally clear. The oceanic waves in the clouds are something I've never seen before in real life and it was unbelievable to watch.

I got a telephoto lens for my camera for Christmas and I haven't really got an opportunity to use it until today when I decided to go to Burnaby Mountain Park by my dorm. The top pictures are of Burrard Inlet facing north. The last three are of downtown Vancouver; the second of the three is of Burrard Inlet facing west and with the Lions Gate Bridge and the third with Hastings Street in the foreground.

So apparently university is time consuming, just to state the obvious. That's the reason I haven't been posting lately. Here is my collection from when I went back home for Winter Break. They're mostly from Canmore, which as you can see is absolutely gorgeous in the winter. It was -25 the entire time I was there so I couldn't stay out for very long to take more pictures, but I am happy with how these came out.

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I just finished my 7th midterm in one month yesterday so I decided I needed to take some pictures ASAP. Because of where Vancouver is in the Pacific time-zone, it gets really dark here early, so I took these as soon as I could after class. These pictures were taken between 4:30 and 5:00 pm. The twilight actually made for some amazing lighting, especially with the fog further in the distance of the last two. I love the lookout from Burnaby Mountain Park and the last two pictures are of Burrard Inlet and Downtown Vancouver. Feel free to comment!!

mountain sound

So my school is on a mountain, and therefore all the buildings are built at different heights. I finally found out how to get onto the roof of this one building which overlooks the north side of Burrard Inlet. It snowed over night just at the higher altitudes on the mountains in the distance, which was beautiful in the background of the green, red and yellow trees here. The second picture is from Saturday when I also went to Stanley Park and took some pictures there! (more at
Anyways, I went thrifting on Friday and found 3 amazing sweaters for under $10 each. This one is my favourite because it has earth tones in it, of course. I also went to the newly opened Topshop in Pacific Center downtown on Saturday and got a few things, plus this free hat! I hope everyone likes it, and feel free to comment and let me know your thoughts!
