    February 10, 2014 • 9:30 am

    Sometimes a break from your routine is the very thing you need. Do you ever feel like you are just so busy doing this and doing that…taking on new project after the next that you just want to sleep in instead? Or go for an afternoon cocktail lunch? Or nestle in bed and read a book?  

    Well, after a year of following our dreams, working our little derriers off and connecting with the most INCREDIBLE customers, vendors & antiques we have decided that…we can do anything, but not everything and have made the tough call to give Charlie Ford Vintage a little vacation (for now). Thank you, thank you for being the best customers us girls could ever ask for!!

    Even though I call Kelowna home, I definitely spend a good amount of my time in Vancouver, where Love It Or List It Is Filmed! Annnd anybody from Vancouver knows that if you're spending a lot of time there, you're inevitably going to encounter rain. LOTS of rain.

    Food Friday: Super Bowl Snacks!

    January 31, 2014 • 10:00 am

    If you are anything like me, there are TWO factors that are very important while watching the Super Bowl: Snacks & Half Time!!! Nevermind the football...I don't think I understand the majority of the rules. BUT, I do enjoy throwing a party with good people and great food all while being able to watch the half time show. So, here are some incredibly delicious, addictive and (somewhat) healthy snacks to get you through that four-ish hour game that you can prepare well in advance! And since you'll be watching for that long, you're really going to want to make sure that you have enough food to last you, or at least that's how I feel about it!

    Sunny Saturdays & My Weekend Uniform

    January 29, 2014 • 10:00 am

     

    Well, most of you already know one of my New Year’s resolutions, which was to eat healthier. I think I’ve been doing moderately good job of keeping that one up (and I even have Food Friday posts to prove it: herehere ANNNND here) with the occasional minor setback (no one mention the Bolognese)! But another one of my resolutions is to maintain balance….work hard, but also try to make some time for myself. You know, so that I can keep my sanity, which isn’t always easy! SO, on that note, after so many grey weeks in a row, the weather has recently decided to cooperate, which was just the PERFECT reminder that I need to take some time to relax. Justin and I got to wake up to some glorious sunshine this weekend and decided to sleep in, meet up with some friends and have a leisurely brunch. Basically, just enjoy our time together instead of having to rush off to finish up all of the things we didn’t get to during the week!

    Food Friday: Coconut Chicken Curry

    January 24, 2014 • 10:00 am

    Even though I say I am a foodie, I only have two distinct Indian food memories...

    1) In 2001 I went on a date with a guy who was shorter than me (I'm 5'2) because he was relentless. We drove his ‘67 Camaro (with a skull stick shift) to his aunt’s Indian restaurant, where he proceeded to tell me, and the entire restaurant, that he was madly in love with me. This experience was bad.
