Unicorn Frappucino Is Here!

You’ve heard it right – the unicorn frappucino is a real creature that is only available when you believe.

I was lucky enough to receive a unicorn frappucino early on in the craze, and managed to snag some photos before all the whip cream melted. It’s definitely pretty and bold, and caters to the summer buzz right now. Who isn’t ready to relax with a neon pink and blue frappucino? Continue reading “Unicorn Frappucino Is Here!”

Mental Health and Self Care

Mental Health and Self Care

I wanted to write a blog post about photography tips from an amateur, but that will have to wait. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been stressed, anxious, and nervous about the personal, professional, and academic portions of my life. It’s that time of the year when assignments are due, finals are coming up, and for me, my work term with the best workplace I’ve ever been in is ending.

Social Activism and Tea: Solidaritea

Social Activism and Tea: Solidaritea

When I was at Heritage Park for the annual sugar festival, Chris and I happened across a table with little paper bags. I didn’t expect much from the table, and really wasn’t planning on spending any more money that day, but as I walked by, the woman behind the table started talking about her tea.  Continue reading “Social Activism and Tea: Solidaritea”

Calgary’s Rolled Ice Cream Scene

The first time I had rolled ice cream I was in foodie heaven. It was in Vancouver’s famous night market and it was everything I had hoped rolled ice cream would be. I had creeped Instagram and online videos with rolled ice cream before, but eating it for the first time, it was so good my boyfriend and I decided to buy another rolled ice cream before we left the night market.

Replacing Chips with Chickpeas

Today is a short blog post because who doesn’t love a quick and easy post for a quick and easy recipe? These chickpeas are sure to curb your appetite, while being easy enough to make that you can watch an X-Files episode on the side.

These chickpeas have all the crunch and satisfaction, but with less of the guilt that comes with downing a whole bag of Kettle chips – even if the packaging says it contains 25% less in sodium. Continue reading “Replacing Chips with Chickpeas”

The Beauty of Humanity Movement -Review

The Beauty of Humanity Movement -Review

Though my father was born and raised in Vietnam, I never knew much about Vietnamese culture. I understood the basics of pho, and knew it was the land of women in ao dais and water buffalos – all images I had been exposed to while eating in Calgary’s Vietnamese restaurants. Picturesque and romantic, artwork related to Vietnam has generally evoked the same feelings of nostalgia and simple, country life. It was what I looked at every time I sat down with a bowl of pho, sipping sweet broth and listening to the restaurant’s intense volume of voices.

Six Promises I Made to My Blog

Six Promises I Made to My Blog

Blogging was always an unattainable dream for me. Not because it isn’t easy to create a blog – literally anyone can sit down and start writing posts. But for me, blogging has and always will be an act motivated by a desire to write content that compels, inspires, and catches the delicate webbing of one’s soul. My writing has always been grounded in a desire for perfectionism, for my words to interlock in sounds and imagery. Continue reading “Six Promises I Made to My Blog”
