Breaking Bad [Habits on Vacation]

So I just came back from an amazing 9ish days in sunny, perpetually sunny California. I always feel like [coastal SoCal] is a more palm-tree-y version of Canada – everyone is super friendly and pretty health conscious (as opposed to when you’re accosted by trucker hats, 9,000 Waffle Houses and AYCE pizza in south Florida.)…

Wanderlust

An irony about being a 20-something: finally having the money to do things (remember in school when you could barely afford that dollar beer bingefest?!), but alas, you don’t really have the time.

I Came, I Saw, I Conquered

Bonjour! I have returned from L’Ottawa just a tad more French and much more fashionable. I came, I saw, I conquered the Rideau Centre in typical Paige-in-another-city fashion. If there’s a mall/outlet centre/fashion district, I will destroy it and take home the best finds that my bank account will allow. Let me begin with Forever21…
