Seriously, how much is it to ask for some fan merchandise for women that isn’t full of bling? I don’t want pink, sequins or sparkles, just some items with the team colours so that I can represent. I’ve ranted about this in another post but that was before I laid eyes on some of the […]

Welcome to the second installment of “A Vancouver Girl’s Guide to the iPhone“. The other morning I set out on a trusty #19 bus from downtown to Metrotown on a quest to find a case for my iPhone. Why didn’t I take the Skytrain? I had some time to kill and the direct bus 40 […]

Since DaveO bestowed $100 upon Keira and I to spend at happyfrog friendly and listed establishments I haven’t done much shopping.
