If you don’t know, now you know! Have a great long weekend and even more fabulous Lunar New Year. I’ll be perfecting my puppy face for those with fat red envelopes to spare. Love you! xo.

Ain’t nothing better than a Friday!

I’ve rewritten the intro to this post about 3 times now and i still dont have a proper greeting. So when words fail, photos are a great alternative. Here are some pictures from my life as of late!

Been puttin in work packin on the el bees for the winter months. Ain’t easy but someone’s gotta do it.

L.A. ChickenPhotoGrid_1354899019118

Little grimy joint in Richmond that serves some bombass fried chicken with the illest gravy! Don’t go for the ambience.. go for the bird ya heard.

Chronic Tacos20121204_194504 PhotoGrid_1354899066556

I love Mexican anything; food, work ethic lol, themed parties – had one last week for my little cousin, but there’s nothing more awesome than coming home to a surprise fiesta! B moonlighting as a Mexican server included (his accent was superb). Nachos supreme, salsa/guac, chicken burrito and my fav, the fish taco that kind of looks like a vagina no? So much fun playing retaurant at home. I used to do it as a child all the time – imaginary food, a server, a customer and always at some sort of fake posh restaurant lol. You’re never too old to play!

Fatty Cow Hot Pot20121201_201756 Seriously, would I be anywhere else on a cold day? Of all the hp dine outs i’ve had, this one captures my favorites all in one photo- Instant noodles, fish skin, and caaawrn! HP season is officially here :) Btw, if you’re not having bi weekly hot pot sessions with your girls, ya ain’t livin.

Cupcakes by Heather & LoriPhotoGrid_1354899084232

Some treats to go along with tree deocorating! How can one possibly adorn ornaments on an Xmas tree without  proper fuel!!?  My first victim was Caramella (bottom right corner), caramel filled chocolate cake topped with caramel buttercream, a dollop of caramel and sprinkled with praline. Ugh, i die. so bomb.

So.. do you like it? Is it too much? lol. I think its perfect.So happy the holidays are here but i’m already trippin over the fact Christmas is 2.5 weeks away. FML. But I can’t really complain bc I already got the best gift this year…I got a new baby!!!

PhotoGrid_1354899126127

Well technically he’s not mine (i’m working on it) but I couldn’t be happier becoming an aunt! Cheebz gave birth to a beautiful, healthy, and biiiig baby boy last week, Christopher Vinh Poole – named after my brother, what a blessed little baby. Honestly, I’ve never loved anyone so much before. Like to love this little human so much even before meeting him is so insane, this is what stalkers must feel. Isn’t he most perfect thing you’ve ever seen?  I’ve always thought newborns were all quite ugly odd looking, but this little guy came out looking like a stud (I may be a lil biased). Gosh I can’t wait to meet him, spoil him, give him sugar behind his mothers back, introduce him to hot girls and be his wing man at the clubs. Too soon, too soon? I dont care, I AM IN LOVE.

It’s experiences like these that make me want to work harder for myself and my faaam jaaams. I mean, what good is time if it’s not spent growing and being with the ones you love? What good is money if you can’t spend it on the ones that deserve it most? With that being said, help me pay for all of my flights to visit my nephew lol. Support HONEYDRIP! And while you’re at it, help my grandma too lol.

Flyday Friday!

Good morning, sweetums!! Happy Flyday, time to get naked! Just kidding, well kind of. I always associate freedom with ripping my clothes off and just getting on my day with my birthday suit. Does anyone else do that? Come home from a day of work/dinner/meetings and just tear off their clothes like it’s got mice in it? Anyways, it’s getting harder to do with this cold weather but nonetheless the bf still insists (and has enforced) mandatory Topless Thursdays and Pantless Sundays lol. Is that TMI? I  don’t know, I think that’s okay to share.

In case you missed it via twitter last night, this was us spending our rainy evening together:

Connect 4 champ what!!! Serously, don’t step to me if you ain’t got the skills. See how fast I won that game? Mind blown.

Okay back to our regular scheduled programming, how are we today? Fabulous I hope! Did you have a good week? Love lots? Accomplish what you set out to do? Have you been reading my Vancitybuzz articles? I find it definitely more fashion focused (makes sense considering I’m their fashion writer d’uh), so at times vickyloves feels like my personal journal – more of me me me. Have you noticed that?

Here are some recent articles:

Herschel Supply is one of my fav new companies, founded in 2009 and owned by brothers from Vancouver! They’re blowing up fast and are deserving of it too. From GQ to Hypebeast, everyone wants a piece!

For those hiding under a massive rock, Topshop and Topman opened yesterday at  the Hudson’s Bay in downtown Vancouver. Many braved the rain and attended the opening, I went for froyo instead. I don’t like crowds, like I don’t like people touching me period lol.

Zara Home launched their home collection last week. From bedding to table wear, shit is bananas! Currently they’re available everywhere eggcept Canada but still def worth a look.

For the rest of my oh so wonderful articles, head on over to Vancitybuzz and read them all (and like them, and tweet them, and leave me sweet messages).

HONEYDRIP update:

Today we dropped the Sarah, and I know I say it all the time.. but I think this is def one of my favs (is it my fault we keep getting better and better!?). I’ve worn it with big loose teased curls but it looks just as good with a big messy bun, as shown below:

It’s really such an easy and great way to dress up a boring old bun. Live out loud, homies.. live out loud!

Another HD announcement we’re eggcited to share is that we’re finally introducing a men’s item – The WOODY.

You might’ve seen it via my IG awhile back when I gifted B with a prototype for his birthday but now it’s finally for sale! Thanks to everyone for the interest, visit the site to pre-order yours now or hit me at vicky@honeydrip.ca. A portion of the proceeds will go to a men’s charity in honor of Movember!

Some additional Seattle photos from last weekend (taken with a real camera! woweee):

Seriously lovin’ those shoulder spikes! With my favorite @Cat and I.

Baby x brunch!

So thats about it really. I’ve been tryng to stay fashionable in this rain but its a little difficult. Well I guess it works out since Fall fashion events have died down and people don’t care if I look like this..

I kid I kid! Okay I better get going, too much sugar in the AM :)

Have a great weekend, I love you xo.

Friday Fank Yous.

Okay so I know thanksgiving was last week but I thought I’d make sure my readers know I’m not some spoiled twat. Okay so maybe I am, and maybe you’re done reading all those facebook/twitter/IG posts of “I’m thankful for my family/friends/shelter/lover” etc. blah blah blah. Yes I’m thankful for those things too, trust me.. I am, each and every single day. but you didn’t come here to listen to me praise allah. So I’m going to do a list of things I’m thankful for, all superficial but still very grateful nonetheless!

I’m thankful for my patience. I’ve officially been on the Galaxy S3 for 4 days now and I’m using all my will power not to throw it across the room!!! Instagram just isn’t the same and I don’t know any good photo apps on this thing. It’s probably just a matter of time until I get the swing of it but seriously, how are people going to fall in love with me if my IG photos aren’t up to par?

I am so thankful for beautiful toe nails. I am literally a pedicurist’s dream come true when I sit  down on that massaging chair. They’re always ooh-ing and aah-ing over my abnormally (but wonderfully) sized pinky toe nails. Seriously, some people don’t even have a nail. Mine are hard, evenly shaped and can take a real beating without complaint (you try walking 5 hours in wedges!). Thank you Toe lord.

Speaking of nails, I’m really thankful for my thick, hard, and healthy nail beds as well. Loving Sally Hansen’s lace sticker paint (thanks nana)

I’m thankful for Jordans.

I’m thankful for my wonderful tardy boss. Always arriving to work 2 mins after I’ve rushed in so never really knowing I’m 20 minutes late every day.

I’m thankful for my big eyes. These tend to get me a lot of things I want, and most importantly they get me out of trouble. Late for a meeting, can’t find change for my coffee, skipping the line at the grocery store, need help tying my shoes – you name it, these eyes will do the trick.

I’m thankful for the 1 car that always seems to speed in the morning on the highway. It allows me to speed behind him but not be the first asshole speeding in the morning.

I’m thankful for my amazing metabolism. it lets me have dinners like this at Suika:

I’m thankful for YSL.

I’m thankful for the Di-Anna’s club. Since my name doesn’t eggsactly fall in the Di or Anna realm, I’m merely a spectator of this dynamic duo. They’re funny, caring and always looking out for me. but most importantly, they really love me!!! any time I’m feeling down I can go to them and they’ll have like 20 nice things to say about me. like my personal vanity mirror that speaks, cheaper than therapy and does wonders for my ego.

 

I’m thankful for being really good at making cupcakes. (credit goes to B for his very mature choice of decorative images)

I’m thankful for HONEYDRIP. Dropped the Aphrodite today! Goddess standing for beauty, love and pleasure. Baby..we are sooo about that life, holla!!!

And last but certainly not least, I’m thankful for Friday because in about 2 hours I am off to Seattle with the boo-ski for another fun filled weekend of eating, in bed play time, and wedding funsies!

All jokes aside….I AM AMAZING lol. And so are you! I dont get it when people dont give themselves credit for all that they do. You’re gifted, smart, beautiful, creative, kind, sweet, thoughtful and the list goes on. You dont need someone to tell you all the time, your biggest critic and the only one that matters is you. Often we look out for validation when in reality the only validaton we need is from ourselves. If you’re a good person with a  good heart, there is no confusion as to what you are. Continue being a contributer of good energy into the universe and you won’t get lost. Okay babies, I see you next week. XO.

HONEYDRIP: the NATALIE

It’s frustrating sometimes to do what you love, and know that people don’t always appreciate the unfamiliar or unknown hustle you’re in. In a beautiful city like Vancouver, it kind of pains me to think how many folks only do what others are doing. My example is always as follows – A majority of men/women in the city only catch on to trends/current it things when they see it on least 100 other people lol. Am I not right? You always want what others want as long as enough people have wanted it before you. From bags to played out watches and jewelry…I love Vancouver, but sometimes I’m like, Vancouver, whats up with you?

Enter HONEYDRIP. I’m not saying we’re pioneers in fashion because we’re not, we are simply advocates for innovative and creative jewelry. We want you to stand out, not blend in. Life is too awesome to walk single file behind some moron… LIVE. OUT. LOUD.

I think this is what keeps us inspired and in love with what we do. Of course there are days when we feel like we’re not helping enough people reach their boss status potential, but we always regroup and set out to conquer the rest of the world the next day.

Lately, we’ve been inspired and playing with old school hollywood materials – rich fabrics, lace, and even feathers. My personal favs:

Feather skirt lace dress / Alexander McQueen silk feather top / Anki feather collar / feather ear chain (we have a smiliar chain Serendipity) / Nicholas Kirkwood feather booties - YOM ALERT!!!

Honeydrip team been obsessed heavy…

Feathers galore!

Feather & lace.

Without further ado, welcome the NATALIE.

Hand sewn lace collars with feather detailing… seriously, if this ain’t a labor of love i dont know what is. Buy here!!!

I hope there is a hustle, a dream, a person, or simply a thought of living well that keeps you motivated and driven to do better. To do better is to be able to measure your success, do not mistaken activity for productivity. Being busy does not mean you are doing well, it’s when your efforts yield results (in the form of money, recognition, stats, sales etc) that actually means something.

There is something for everyone, you just need to tap into what makes you, you. What are you passionate about? What productive thing can you do all day that doesnt feel like work? They say if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. I can’t wait to get to that point, it’s not easy figuring that part out.. but as long as you make the effort to be better than yesterday than I promise you you’re on the right path. Anyways, how’s that for some Flyday Friday inspiration? Stay hungry, stay humble!

In case you miss my mug this weekend (which you will)..

I’ll be cooking up a storm and drinking alcohol by the barrel. See you Tuesday, have a great weekend Vickylovers. XO.

Friday fuckery

…Not really but yay its Flyday Friday. I’ve friggin pooped! Spent last night hangin’ with my Vancitybuzz fams. It was nice to put the names to faces and get caught up w/ old friends. Def fortunate to be a part of such an amazing crew. Not sure if you can tell by the linked twitter photo but I’m donnin’ some Honeydrip hotness..

Sorry dimes, this isn’t available yet but will be shortly… stay tuned! The Meg is now available at our Honeydrip shop, buy here!!! Love this piece.

And now for what you’ve been waiting for… Friday dolla dolla boys y’all.

The only time I’ll ever say this, “I wish I were that dog.”

For you Doobs.

Jeff Staple, major school girl stalker crush.

Have a great weekend folks, get ugly for me. XO.
