Nothing like a little black dress in Paris!

A few more photos from my Paris trip the other week for you guys!

Diddddd I mention I fell in love with Paris? Yep. Totally head-over-heels in love. This also could have been heavily impacted by the fact that I was drunk on croissants and macarons the entire time. Chocolate wasted for sure. I am literally the biggest sucker for anything sweet/carby/delicious so being in Paris was the equivalent of being a kid in a candy shop for me.

Also can we talk about how people dress in Paris? Everyone just looks better. The women are all SO beauti, I felt like a total creep just staring at everyone and trying to understand why French women are just so…. Je ne sais quoi. Creepiness aside, the women in France really do put themselves together fantastically¬†and I was defs inspired by the style there.

Since I was in Paris, I decided what better to go with than a little black dress. It is a classic piece that you can literally wear 100 times in a hundred different ways. Which is totally winning in my books. What do you guys think? Oui? No? Comment below!!

ALSO, I am a bit late to this party (what else is new lol) but add me on snapchat! 👻@robynkim Let’s be friends ūüôā

Love love!

When I went to Paris this week, I honestly really wasn’t expecting much. I have never been one of those girls who “dreams of going to Paris.” For whatever reason, honestly hadn’t really thought of even going there. Let’s just say I majorly underestimated how much I would like Paris. I totally fell in love.¬†😍

Everywhere you go there there is just so much to see — no turn is a wrong turn. Getting lost in a city and exploring is probably one of my favourite things to do. Not to mention the food. Sweet mother of god was it ever good. One thing you should know about me, is I have a major sweet tooth. It is verging on not normal how much I like sweets. So walking around Paris was just a giant sugar rush for me lol. It was shameful how many macarons I ate at Laduree, honestly don’t even want to talk about it because it was that bad.¬†😂¬†And then there was the chocolates, the pastries, the desserts…. the list goes on forever. Basically what I am trying to say is my ass will be at the gym working off my bad behaviour for the next week LOL. Whatever, totally worth it.¬†

A few snaps from Austin, Texas + a travel update!

What a week! If you guys follow me on snapchat 👻¬†(@robynkim) you know that I just spent this past week in France! It was so crazy busy that I haven’t even had time to upload any of the photos yet. Let’s just say blogging in Paris > everywhere. I am SO EXCITED to share pics with you! Everything is just prettier there haha.

For today, here are a few pics a took the week before in Texas.¬†‚ėļÔłŹ¬†I am back in Austin now for the weekend before I head to Vancouver on Monday, and I¬†have lots more to share with ya’ll soon. Plus I have one of my #1 travel beauty tips coming your way because I was thinking about it and HOW have I not shared this with you yet?? Honestly no idea. Major fail on my part lol!

Also, on my way home from the airport last night in Austin I totally stopped at In n’ Out (shameful pics on my snapchat lol.) Why is it that every time I leave Canada/USA I always have the biggest cravings for “American” food? I never eat that crap normally haha it is so weird.

Anyways, happy Friday babes!!¬†😘

Happy first day of spring everyone!

Here are some snaps of a cute lil’ outfit I wore out in Austin this weekend. It was hot as hell there and I was definitely glad to be wearing these loose linen pants. Noooobody wants to be stuffed into tight-ass clothes when you are in a place with high heat/humidity. It’s just a bad look all around.¬†

K also, can we TALK about my shoes?? Shoeme.ca hooked me up with these Jessica Simpson shoes, and I am alllll about them. I have been looking for some lace-up nude heels for a while because they go well with everything, and I am lazy so win-win. I’ve bought shoes from the Jessica Simpson a few times before, and I actually really love them. They are good quality and also super comfortable. Boom! Check out some other looks from her brand by clicking here.¬†

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

A cute little brunch spot in San Francisco.

Last weekend I literally spent the entire time just eating eating and more eating haha. Crap. But really, what else is new haha. We found the cutest little brunch spot called the The Plant Cafe Organic that sits you right on the water in San Fran. So pretty.

I had the freakin’ best Huevos Rancheros. Like, so good. I die.¬†

Anyways, here is a little life update for ya’ll. I am actually in Austin right now checking out the city. This is my first time here and so far I am loving it. The people are so damn¬†friendly, and everyone wants to make sure you are happy. Also totally into the cute little Texan accents everyone has. 😂¬†I love being called ma’m hahah nobody calls you that in Vancouver.¬†

Off to explore more of this city, will share some pics with you guys soon¬†😘

Another beautiful Canadian scene in Whistler, BC

Hi my loves!

Soooooo I literally spent this last weekend in freakin’ paradise. I can’t even tell you guys how much I need to be in nature to feel at peace. That shit seriously centres me. It makes you feel like you are just a small little piece of this world, and really puts you in a great headspace to solve problems that you may have initially thought were huge — but turn out to be quite insignificant. At least that is how I feel¬†😊

Anyways, I need my nature and this weekend without a doubt gave me that dose of medicine I needed. Anyone else feel that way too? Comment below!

A flirty little suit by the babes at Soulstice Swim!

Looking back on some more photos from my Philippines trip over the holidays, and I came across these beauties. This definitely wasn’t the most ideal day (muggy AF and cloudy) but it was our very last day on Puerto Galera, and we made the most of it anyways! Right about now another vacation sounds like a faannnnntastic idea to me. Beach, swimsuits, beers all day long? Yep. Sign me up.¬†

For now it’s back to reality and seeing where my next adventure takes me! Also Valentines Day is coming up this weekend! Do you guys remember my post last year about Valentines? Click here to check it out. It is such a cute little holiday, even if you don’t have a bf. Just think about it as an opportunity to spread the love in any way that you can¬†😊¬†But, more on that later babes.

Friends of Ours – The cutest brunch spot in London!

It would literally be a crime to go to London and not eat crumpets. And obviously while eating them be talking in a horrible English accent. “CRUMPETS! I’M IN ENGLAND EATING CRUMPETS!” <– shouted in a British accent.😂¬†Literally everyone in the restaurant hated me.¬†I definitely would hate me too.¬†

Anyways, discovered the best little brunch spot that had the most bomb crumpet brekkie. Figs, honey, shortbread (uhg dying writing about this I want it again haha), some kind of weird English cheese, and just all around deliciousness.

The place is called “Friends of Ours” and is located in Shoreditch. Highllllllly recommend you check it out if you want to have a party in your mouth. <– lol. The coffee there was also to-die-for. Had an americano, and was it ever delish.

Happy Tuesday! Want to check out some recipes you can make for dinner this week? Check out the “Food” section on the tab above.¬†😋

More snaps from London!

I am totalllllly obsessed with this look right now. A gigantic baggy sweater with my Timberland heels is pretty much my fall uniform. This outfit happens way more often than I care to admit lol.

Reasons baggy sweaters rock?

  1. They look chic AF.
  2. Comfort is king.
  3. Lots of room for eating (priorities.)
  4. When its f*cking freezing out, there is nothing cozier than a huge sweater.

Reasons I am OBSESSED with my Timbs?

  1. I feel like a hood chick while wearing them which leads to me feeling like a badass which leads to happiness. #science
  2. WATERPROOF. Anyone living in Vancouver understands why this is so important.
  3. Comfort is king. Again. So freakin’ comfy.¬†

Okay babes I gotta run!! Love you all to the moon and back. <3

My adventures through the Shoreditch neighbourhood in London!

Shoreditch was absolutely the best. I totally fell in love with the neighbourhood and spent a good amount of time there on my trip. Great food, art, shopping, and beautiful little streets to wander through all day.

Here were some of the highlights from Shoreditch for me:

ALBION CAFE – You have to eat here if you want to try traditional British food that doesn’t suck (if we are being honest the British are not exactly known for their cuisine lol.) It was seriously so delicious I can’t even.¬†😉¬†We had the Meat Pie which had nice big pieces of turkey and chicken (to die for) and the Braised Brisket Hash with Spinach and Fried Egg. Uhg so good. Miss it already. Click here to check out the full menu from the Albion Cafe.

STREET ART – Soooo much of it! My patience for art/museums is pretty slim at best (see my New York post lol.) For me, street art is literally the best thing because I can just look at it as I walk around doing my business. There was some awesome work done in Shoreditch and I definitely recommend you go check it out.

LABOUR & WAIT – Another store that I absolutely loved in Shoreditch. There is a lot of vintage going on in the Shoreditch neighbourhood which isn’t exactly my cup of tea, so I was happy to be exploring other non-vintage stores. Labour and Wait was a really cool home-ware store that had the cutest collection of kitchen stuff that all looked super vintage and cool but wasn’t really. It was awesome and I had a hard time not buying the whole store. I am a total sucker for kitchen stuff.¬†

BOXPARK – Food and shopping! The best of both worlds are combined in this unique pop-up mall that is made entirely of shipping containers (trendy, I know.) Mostly mainstream brands but it was a fun experience and I had awesome pulled pork there (and pulled pork is life.)

Okay that’s all for today folks! Do you guys have any fave spots to hit up in the Shoreditch area? Let me know in the comments below ūüôā
