No more complaining about Vancouver men…

Ok, so I have to admit that I’ve had a few discussions with my girlfriends about Vancouver guy’s and their lack of dating effort. Convo’s about how the girls in this city are pretty hot and there are lots more of them than hot men so the average guy has it easy. But no more complaining for me… I just went to pick up my afternoon tea at Starbucks and as I get to the counter there was a guy in front of me, not my usual type but still a good looking guy. He turns and sees me… takes a step back and says “Wow… can I buy you a coffee?”. My reaction, “No, thanks I’m fine”. I’m so freaking independent that the idea of a stranger offering to pay bugs me so much that I didn’t even register the fact that a cute, put together guy was hitting on me. So no more complaining about the lack of effort because lord knows i’m not making it easy. Sorry dude.

    hahaha! Usually it doesn't register until way after, atleast for me. Are you still not complaining? I was told something interesting about dating,that the ratio of men vs women in Van is way less. Meaning: there aren't enough men. I wonder if this is true. -another single girl in the raincity

A closer look at Poplar Island, the small island off the Fraser River that I see every morning. There’s a dark history to this island. I had heard that it was used to quarantine people during the small pox epidemic in 1889. What I didn’t know was that New Westminster was originally all Qayqayt territory, and when Europeans settled in the area they displaced the Qayqayt peoples to Poplar Island. When small pox hit, Indigenous populations were hit hard. It almost completely decimated the community on the island. Europeans then continued to send any indigenous people with small pox to the island. The island ended up becoming a burial ground. Looking at the poplar tree life that grows from the island in a new light now. #qayqayt #remember #bchistory
BEEhave At first I thought this was a birdhouse but it turned out to be a bee🐝house. More accurately, a bee condominium. Found this beautiful world as I was out looking for colour inspiration in nature for my loft. #newwest #bee #behave #nature #color #colour #boardwalk #design #decor
I used to fill my IG page with travel pics, but now my weekly walk for groceries feels as exciting as a destination across the world. Probably helps that there’s so much spring nature decorating my path. #socialdistancing #spring #nature #bloom #love #community #staylocal
My broadcast nightmare came true when I taught my entire class on Easter Monday without sound 😬 so I’m offering an extra class this week on Thursday April 16th via Instagram live at 7:30 pm. With sound 😀 Follow my other account @lofty_vibe to be notified when I go live. #yoga #soundhealing #restorativeyoga #ufodrum #instagramlive #relax #restore #chill
I was getting setup for tonight’s #restorativeyoga class and noticed the shadows. I can’t resist geometric framing. Anyway, if you’re ready to relax, tune in every Monday @lofty_vibe at 7:30 pm. If you are feeling a little screen fatigue, rest assured 😉 you won’t be looking at your phone. All you need is the sound. #yoga #restorative #heartchakra #happydrum #soundhealing #singingbowlmeditation
Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
