A Cheap Summer Activity to Do in Vancouver

Did you know there’s a conservatory that costs a mere $6.50 to get in, in Vancouver? That’s right, Bloedel Conservatory is located in beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park situated atop Vancouver’s highest point.


If you’re interested in the myriad of bird species amongst beautiful foliage and flowers—then Bloedel should be your next stop.


This was such a fun summer activity because it’s cheap & cheerful, and not to mention beautiful.


For $7, it’s definitely worth it. I mean just look at these cute birds.


Have you been? What else do you like to do in Vancouver?

Because we’re at the halfway mark in August, it doesn’t mean I had to leave out one of my favourite subscription boxes, right? My absolute go-to for all things chic, glamorous and practical (triple threat if you ask me!) is the PopSugar Must Have Box. I receive one of these boxes almost monthly and I cannot tell you how many times I squeal with delight opening them, it’s almost like PopSugar is in my mind because everything they curate is something I would purchase for myself any ways. What to know what was in my August Must Have Box? The list is below:

– “Cheers” lacquered tray – so cute and perfect for entertaining!

– First Aid Beauty mask – can’t wait to try this, I’ve heard such good feedback.

3) A rose coloured journal, love anything rose coloured!

4) Meri Meri gold colored


candles, again, perfect for hosting bashes!

5) Goodie Girl Chocolate Cookies, these were delicious. PopSugar always includes snacks in their boxes and I love that! I never feel guilty eating them.

6) A DOGEARED Friendship bracelet. Adorable!

7) A SHOPTIQUES $25 giftcard! Love giftcards, hehe.

Also, huge news! The August Must Have is a special box because POPSUGAR Must Have turns 5 this month! So exciting! In honour of their birthday, they have a special offer:
