A Few Good Things

The weather is warming and people are out in Vancouver, doin' they thannnng!

Every once in awhile, a small bird will land on my balcony, but it's rare that I have my camera beside me and can snap a picture:

After reading this blog about the "Japanese Dollar Store" last week, I was thrilled to find that there's a Daiso located one town over from me! I made a trip there on Sunday...

The Daiso in Richmond, BC

... And picked up three very awesome but very inexpensive boxes to store 
my nail polish and nail supplies:

3 polka dot storage boxes from Daiso
.  top to bottom:  $2.00, $3.00, $3.50  . 
Nail polishes organized into storage boxes
.  left to right: colored polishes, neutrals/glitters/top coats, nail tools  .
This funny idea for a meme popped into my head the other day, so I had to create it immediately. 
I tweeted it to Nelly on St. Patrick's Day. So far he hasn't responded.

(If you didn't get that meme, you need to refresh your memory of this little gem.)

I finally stopped into The Kings Head restaurant/pub to try out their breakfast... It's right near my apartment but I'd never been there before!

The moss on the trees around here is really beautiful...

And I never get sick of these city and mountain views!

If you couldn't already tell, the grainier photos are from my Instagram account. Are you following me there yet? I'm still sort of new to Instagram and looking to follow some eye-catching accounts, so leave me a comment with your username!

    A Beautiful Zen

    1. Awwww well all of this awesomeness will be right here waiting for you when you get back :)

  2. Why have I never thought of going to Daiso to get boxes to store my beauty products?!?!?! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Macarons and Mischief

    1. There are SO many cute boxes there of all different sizes - it was actually exactly what I went there for! The variety of box designs was a pleasant surprise - as was the low price of each of them. Boxes like this are probably 2-3x more expensive at a place like Michaels!

  3. I went to Daiso in Richmond recently for almost the exact same reason. I needed something for my lipsticks. Great store eh?

    1. Oh my gosh there were so many containers there that would have been perfect for lipsticks. I'm really very pleased that I was introduced to Daiso! I'll be going back for sure :)

  4. Lol can't believe you've only just discovered Daiso, it's one of my favorite stores!


Leave me some love!
