BOBALU

Bubble tea (or Boba Tea, if you wish) is definitely my latest obsession. Any day that I don’t have it, I seem to spend all day thinking about ways I can acquire it and if it’s in my “calorie budget”…

GOT YOUR TICKETS YET?

Ahhh, Folk Fest. My favourite (non-holiday) event of the year. There’s not a single other time in my life when I am as relaxed as I am at the Winnipeg Folk Festival. Listening to music with dirt between your toes…

TWITTERPAINTED

I’m aware it’s not exactly new, but I’ve decided to hop on the Twitter bandwagon. For those who are unacquainted with the service, I’ll try and break it down in simple terms after the jump. Have you ever been alone and…

HELPING ME, HELPING YOU

ICE CUBES FOR IMBECILES, ALSO ME

Came by this article about the Quicksnap on Gizmag (photo credit to them, obviously) via The Kitchn. This isn’t exactly new news but it seems one of the finalists in a design competition sponsored by Toyota IQ came up with…

HOT TO TROT

So, tomorrow night (Saturday) a big group of us are headed to Rumours for the awesome Jeremy’s birthday and the specialness of his birthday will only be topped by the fact that the headlining act is none other than Mr….

DON’T GET DROOL ON MY ARTWORK

Grab yourself some pillowcases with my koi swimming around on them.  They would make a really nice accent piece for a modern, airy bedroom. I have to say, I ordered these myself (for posterity, of course) and they are a…
