What a weekend I have had. A lot has happened, and a lot of procrastinations turned into reality. I've had to make some really difficult decissions in my life over the past while, and while some of them really hurt.. I finally have come to realize, that it's my life - and I need to put myself first. I need to stop living a life hoping that I will become an exception, and start paving my way where I don't need to be an exception because everything will be what I want.
Well enough with that, on to the fun part of my weekend! So I came across this store by my work called Friis & Co. Well it actually isn't a store, its more of a mini wholesale shop thats closing down in 2 weeks that has amazing deals that no one knows about. What I love even more about it, is that it's danish designed! With the fact that I'm half danish, and it's rare to find amazing danish fashion.. I fell in love with this place!
I got this amazing leather purse with strands of pearls and leather chains.
I also bought 3 rings. Here are 2 of them. The first one is a set of clusters.
The 2nd is a Fish.
When saturday came along I headed over to Relish for lunch. I didn't really have to much on an appetite, so I opted to try their Spiced Tomato soup with anise and fennel for $6 and also their Spicy Broccolini seared in chilli flakes and garlic for $6. Both were amazing, and I really loved the soup. One of the best tomato soups I have had in a long time for sure. After a late lunch I headed back to my crib to get ready for Ladies Night! I had a semi-ladies night the night before, but Saturday I was ready to party.
I met up with one of my girls Jazmin for dinner before meeting the rest of my girls in Vancouver. Jaz and I were going to check out the new Joeys in Burnaby, but after hearing they had a 90 minute wait list for a party of 2, we decided to hit up commercial drive for a quick bite. We had no idea where to go, but as we passed my favorite indian spot on the drive, Corner Taandori - Jazmin wanted to check it out. Plus its super cheap, at 8.99 a dish and so filling! I was still pretty full from my lunch before, so I didnt want any rice, and couldn't even eat half of my naan that came with it.
Jazmin had the butter chicken with naan for $8.99.
I had the chilli chicken with naan for $8.99
I had never tried this dish before, and wanted something different and it was really good!
When we left the drive I met up with my girls Julia and Annette at Commercial and headed downtown to meet up with Martina, Teresa, Arsha, Mayira and Cheri for Joseph Richards on Granville. I had never been to this club, had no idea what they played or what the crowd would be like. All I knew was Arsha brother worked the VIP area so we could get in with a late guestlist with no cover. This club was pretty amazing. Best part is there was no drama. No drunken losers bugging us, and no fights breaking out. Perfect spot for a group of 10 girls to dance the night away. They had an alto sax player come out for a good portion of the night to play along to the club music. I took a few pics from the night posted below. Also a shot of their water bottles - don't they look like a mickey? Hope everyone had an amazing saturday night like me!
