Aug Gong

We pretty much have a love-hate relationship with Astrology (see Full Moon? Bite me!) but the star slash planet lovers may have been pretty much on the ball when they claimed this month was going to be insanely busy for all. The two (almost three) eclipses in this month were supposed to stir things up in everyone’s lives. Now whether the effects were felt at home, at work, in your love life or a combo of all, that all depended on your astrological sign…

Whatever crazy changes you went through, we hope that everything works out.
See you in September. Thanks for reading the Blog!

Spreekt u Nederlands?

Laurien Mulder is an amazing euro artist to whom we were recently introduced. We were thrilled to find out that she has a website which showcases some of her work. We weren’t as thrilled when we found out the website is in Dutch. We still had a lot of fun looking at her work… as should you!

Located at the heart of Kits is the newest coolest dessert bar, Scoop!

We stumbled across Scoop on our lunch break. It screamed fresh and deliciousness and we couldn't help but to stop and splurge. The fact that this dessert bar actually served Frozen Yogurt made up of probiotic, non-fat yogurt with added fibre was just icing on the cake.

But don't worry! If non-fat is not a part of your vocabulary (seriously? and you live in Vancouver? ) you can top this model-figure friendly beast with heaps of sensational non-fat toppings. This place provides up to 20 fun and amazing toppings from fresh kiwis to Reese's pieces, so scoop it up!

Scoop is located half a block west of Zulu Records and Sejuiced. The exact address is 2050 West 4th Ave, Vancouver.

fresh: BEAST

Our most favorite person told us about the BEAST. They're from Montreal. We checked them out and we're in love. Their sound is as fresh as it can get. If they swing by your city, you should get on it and see them live. We hear they're beyond amazing.

Tennis Table

Table tennis is something many of us just enjoy playing in our basements, schooling our moms, or in the office, if you're a lucky consultant, but these guys are serious about their ping pong and holy moly, I've never seen cooler guys playing the sport. Seriously check this shit out: Their t-shits are cool too.

Thanks to for writing about these guys.

stolen girlfriends had us at hello

Usually when we come across a new designer/clothing line, the designs are what make the website fun to check out. Rarely is it the other way around...till now. This time, it's the website that is the main attraction. Check it out at: We're loving the spotlight effect. Pretty sure we like pretending that we have one on us all the time too. Don't be a hatter. Also, the Blah Blah Blah section is cool to scroll through too.



would you wear this? WE WOULD!!!

the japanese invade with art part 1

This is super fun fashion photography by Japanese artist Maki Kawakita... a.k.a a feast for the eyes.

For her bio and her complete portfolio, check out:

the japanese invade with art part 2

Naoshi is another Japanese artist we love to love. explains it best: Naoshi's colourful, edible-looking, syrupy sweet, cute as a button artworks are only made better because of her technique. No ordinary pictures, Naoshi's creations are Sunae painting, otherwise known as sand-painting. Pretty much, she takes all differently coloured sand and arranges it into a work of art. Yeah, that's right. Sand!

The craft of sand-painting was traditionally practiced by Indigenous Australians, Tibetan monks, Indians and some Native and Latin Americans and was often attached to religious or healing ceremonies. Naoshi says that while it's an incredibly time consuming and patience testing method, the satisfaction of finishing a Sunae painting outshines any of the negatives.
