Aliexpress Minnie Mouse S7 Phone Case ✧ {Review}

 

Back in January, I finally said good-bye 🙁 to my precious Samsung 5 phone. It had served me well since 2015. I did however, had the option of choosing between the iPhone SE in Rose Gold ♥ or Samsung S7, since my old phone contract had ended. 

To be honest, the materialistic and girly side of me wanted to select the iPhone since…well, it was in a nice pink-color ( ु•⌄• ). The sales associate, however, encouraged me to play with the iPhone first to see how I liked it, as I had previously owned Samsung products for the past 5 years. 

Despite the pretty color of the iPhone, I stayed true to Samsung, as I’m use to the functions and I like how I don’t need to go through iTunes to add music. Plus, I do have a Samsung camera that primarily works and connects with my phone.

Dine Out #3: Forage

It’s March and I’m still writing about my Dine Out experience, that right there, tells you how slow I am at updating my posts 😌😌😌

Anyways, the next place I had tried out for my dine out 2017 experience was Forage. I’ve always wanted try this place, since it was hyped on Instagram and I was glad I was able to make a reservation into my schedule. Surprisingly, I had forgotten to take pictures of the place inside, so I don’t have that many pictures of the structure, layout and ambiance of the restaurant.

One of the first two signs you see before you head in.

Visiting Vancouver’s Catfé 🐱

If you were to ask me the question, “are you a dog person or a cat person?” I would immediately answer with no hesitation at all, that I’m a cat person. I realize this is ironic, seeing how I have a dog, Tobi, but I’ve always liked cats more than dogs. 

Recently, I went to Vancouver’s very first cat cafe, the Catfé. The cafe had initially opened in December 2015, at Tinseltown. While it wasn’t my first time going, I had more fun this time since there were more cats and they were actually awake and playful (ؑᵒᵕؑ̇ᵒ)◞

As a fair warning, this blog post will be picture-heavy

Dine Out #2: Brix & Motar

The last past 17 days of Dine Out Vancouver have gone too soon…meaning that this year’s Dine Out event is sadly, over… ໒( •́ ∧ •̀ )७ Although, I must say, my wallet and bank account took a beating, with all the eating out, so I guess it’s a good thing, it’s done.

The next place I ventured out to try was Brix & Motar. For someone, who likes to call herself a “foodie“, I actually never heard of this place.  We only discovered this place when we looked at the option for the $40 set menu.

(While it’s too late to participate in Dine Out for 2017, I still encourage you guys to look at the different restaurants and menus  Dine Out Restaurants)

Muji Vancouver at Japan Unlayered

Explore with me! ╰( ・ ᗜ ・ )╯

Before 2 years ago, I would consider myself pretty sheltered regarding events around Vancouver. I would never venture out to events in our city, partly due to no interest of going out and the fact I was shy and I didn’t like going anywhere unless I had one person I knew personally, to go with me.

However, after being dragged out by my close friend to go hiking for the first time ever in 2015, I found myself enjoying the adventure and just going out in general. Nowadays, I love to find new events to try.

Recently, I received tickets for the pop up store for Muji Vancouver. The MUJI Pop-up Store will be accessible during January 27th – February 28th at the Fairmont Pacific Rim.  Read more

Doki Doki Crate: February Box Review ♡

If you must know something about me, I love Japanese culture, particularly anything that I deemed is cute or in Japanese, かわいい, (literal translation: cute).

And another fact about me? I’m a huge sucker for cute packages ˭̡̞(◞˃ᆺ˂)◞*. So, when I discovered Japan Crate’s Doki Doki Box online, I knew I wanted to try and get a subscription box.

Japan Crate  is an online subscription service company based in San Francisco. They send their subscribers a box of either Japanese candies, snacks, makeup products or items for their audience to experience the cultural side of Japan.

Dine Out #1: Abode Restaurant

When you’re both a poor University student and a foodie, the best event for those living in Vancouver, is Dine Out, which, let me emphasize again, is the greatest food event, ever.

It gives people, (AKA, us, students) the chance to try places that would normally put us in more debt (•́︿•̀), at reasonable prices. 

And for it’s 15th year, Dine Out Vancouver is back!

17 days only, people. Try it while you can!

Hello Everyone ♥

 Welcome to  my very first WordPress blog post 

My name is Courtney, and I’m a student from Simon Fraser University, studying Health Sciences and Gerontology.

This is my very first time taking a publishing course, and I’m very excited about it, as I believe it’s a course that takes on more of a “hands-on” approach, then just some of the typical academic studies, where you just read the textbook.

In recent months, I have found myself being interested in the world of publishing, and wished that I took it upon myself to actually take the initiative to do something that I have an interest in it.

So, I thought to myself, it’s 2017, it should be a year to d do what I want to do and things that are new to me.

Thanks for reading.
