Where to: JJ Bean coffee

Where: JJ Bean at CBC Plaza - 740 Hamilton Street  Vancouver, BC (It's a local franchise you mainly find in or near downtown and I live near this one so it's great for a person on the go)

What they offer: Coffee, tea, snacks, and etc.

Recommending: The mocha. Nothing else. Period.

Price Tag: It's about the same as you would go into Starbucks, Blenz, and etc. but at at least you actually get a DAMN good coffee and not the murky shit.

Where to: Manzano Europa bakery

Where: Metropolis at Metrotown - 4820 Kingsway Burnaby, BC

What they offer: decadent desserts or pastries,  and baked goods. Also provides yummy sandwiches + wraps, drinks and etc.

Recommending: I'm a huge fan of the fresh fruit tart, tiramisu, chocolate mousse cake and plain cheesecake.

Price Tag: It is a bit pricey but they are all made from scratch and I make a bee-line when I go to Metro ^^.

Cannes film festival and etc.


One of the main attractions of "le Festival de Cannes" is films that will premiere their finished product. It is one of THE most prestigious and grandest festivals in the world. You see the rich and famous dressed up in the most glamorous gowns/tuxedos (even the God damn paps dress up compared to the Academy Awards!) and jewelry worth even more than my house!

For 2011, on my radar are films like "Melancholia" directed by Lars von Trier and the Terrence Malick film "Tree of Life".

I can't wait to see the fashion even more. It's fun to look at some folks proving they are fucking hoity toity and making us wish we were there but at the same time, you'll root for the celebs you WANT to see.

On my radar: model Doutzen Kroes, Laetitia Casta, Angelina Jolie (she always brings it here), Ryan Gosling and those that are just looking damn good!

Red velvet cakes (or cupcakes)

When I first tried Red Velvet, I just about died! I tried it about a year ago and have been crazy about it since. I can't believe that I never discovered it, I lived under a FUCKING ROCK!
