From One Adventure To The Next

I had a busy and exciting year that went by in a blink. Hence my absence from the blog world. I was busy working on the PR team for Holt Renfrew. I worked on a lot of amazing projects and met a lot of awesome people…from stylish and sassy co-workers to world-class designers and even a few celebs. Being in the presence of Elton John, Domenico Dolce, and Christian Louboutin were cool experiences, but I especially loved meeting Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, Oscar PR girl, the Dannijo girls, and the guys of Rag & Bone. All of them are incredible examples of success with a genuine, funny, and down to earth vibe. I quite admire that.

So, the year has come to an end, and I’m embarking on my next adventure – which involves a BIG move to Asia! In just a few days, I’ll be moving to Shanghai for the year. Even after all the mental preparing and goodbye parties, it still doesn’t seem real.  I suppose once I’m actually there, it will hit me. The look on my face will be “what just happened / why am I here?” But in this moment, I’m pretty darn excited. I’ll be meeting my bf who has been living there for the past 2 months. I’ll be blogging about my adventures, doing a bit of travelling, and I’ll be on the job hunt. I also plan on taking Mandarin classes. That will be a crazy challenge, but I’m going to try.

IMG_2257I was fortunate to visit Shanghai for a few days (yes, we went all the way there for a few days) in June to check it out before making a decision about the move. I must say I was quite impressed. It wasn’t like anything I pictured. My favourite neighbourhood is the French Concession, which is where we’ll be living. It has a European vibe with beautiful tree-lined streets, and countless exquisite boutiques from local fashion designers. There are a ton of chic restaurants and cocktail bars, and it’s not crowded like other areas. My first impression of Shanghai was that it’s a ‘cool city,’ and bf has reported that it is indeed. Here are a few shots…

    they are full of fearfulness they probably would not qualify.
    Although a few states at this moment require
    that insurers produce coverage no matter what
    about the pre-existing conditions. Premiums on these types
    of guaranteed programs are usually bigger, but when thinking about the high cost of medical treatment
    it may be a safer way to go to protect your current financial potential.

    After 25 years or so of faithful services, my Sunbeam Mixmaster gave out.
    While I replaced it with an alternative of the same manufacturer, When I found out that they can’t create items just like they used to!
    Well, I bought a kitchenaid, just like everyone else.
    This has been a short while ago now and I also still dislike
    that Kitchen Aid! I don’t love that you can’t add ingredients quickly as you are mixing up without getting the collar and
    chute on the bowl, it’s hard to clean the bowl while the beater is working, it’s very
    sloppy (some thing generally seems to fly out the bowl, it doesn’t matter how cautious I’m), I can’t seem to have it set correct so the ingredients at the base of the bowl
    get incorporated into the batter, and it is just too big and
    heavy!
