LFW 14'

Happy Wednesday folks! Okay, I didn't exactly go to fashion week, but my cousin Rebekah did. (I wish I did.) So let me live vicariously through her and enjoy this moment until reality sinks in that I sold my soul to the corporate world. (Have I mentioned the honorary president of her school is Jimmy Choo? Yes, THE Jimmy Choo.)

So glad that my cousins also have a knack for photography, and quite enjoy it too. I recall when Rebekah got her first DSLR.. from the days of auto focus, to her shooting street style for NYLON Singapore. Definitely pushes and inspires me to start up street style photography in Vancouver again. I guess we shall see. Check out her blog for more photos!

Coffee & Conversations ♥

I love coffee shops. If I could live in one, I probably would. (half-kidding) I finally met up with Lianna at Nelson the Seagull over the weekend, and we bonded over some avo on toast, drinks, honest conversations and Instagraming. (ok actual photography too) and might I add.. Their in-house stuff is amazing. 

Another thing I love? Raw talk. Real talk as some of you might call it. Or heart to hearts. I probably don't set enough time aside as I should to catch up with people.. (guilty), but conversations and coffee are always a favourite in my books. 

As I've grown older.. I realize the power and criticality of vulnerability for meaningful connection. Raw, open, bold conversations - stripped of judgement. Intentional and authentic. Conversations that has depth, transparency.. from a heart that genuinely wants to know another person. And I love how coffee shops creates a space for that. Perhaps it might not be the best place to some to hold some very personal conversations.. But it's my safe place. It's a place where I get to experience snippets of other peoples' lives. A place that takes me back to a child-like curiosity as I observe my surroundings. A place that brings me joy from my encounters with strangers. A place where I've had some of my most honest conversations. Thankful for days like these. Thought I'd share some photographs I snapped as well. Kinfolk worthy? Enjoy! :)

P.S For those in Vancouver, where are some of your fave coffee spots in the city?

Oregon Coast photo diary ♥

Back from the Coast! Misty mornings with the cool ocean breeze. Beautiful blue horizons. Dominant, crashing and determined waves.. I don't know why I didn't tag along all those years of camping in Oregon, but visiting this place definitely needs to be an annual thing. There's just something about listening to the sound of the waves.. and being right there in the middle of it all; where the sandy bottom accomodates the incoming waves before they roll over themselves. Sarah Kay said it best, "There is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away." 

Grateful for lots of quality time with the fam, as well as some much needed self-reflection. Whenever I'm by the ocean, it makes me put my whole life back in perspective, and reminds me how much bigger God is than I am. His greatness, the beauty of His creation, and His love for us. Perhaps I need to be by an ocean more often. Hope you guys enjoy this visual diary!
