Green isn’t just a colour

Were you ever one of those kids who thought having a green thumb literally meant having a green-coloured thumb? I (adorably) was, but I learned later that being green is a lifestyle, and it’s one you can wear. Handmade items are always a favourite in my book, because for some reason they remind me of… Read more »

Pacific Coast Pretty: Be a violet vixen this Valentine’s Day

Don’t be caught with run-of-the-mill red lipstick if Cupid’s arrows fly your way this Valentine’s Day. While everyone else is turning to traditional hues like baby pink, cherry red, and moody Bordeaux, think outside that heart-shaped box and take shades of violet and orchid for a spin.

Cold-shouldered formality

Every winter, the University of Victoria holds a Winter Formal dance at the end of November for the on-campus residents. I attended it in my first year, and if you have a chance, why not?
