One of the things I will be doing on the blog is to feature five local things to do for you around Vancouver every week!  Let’s get started …

1 | Anthropologie is a fabulously beautiful store with gorgeous clothing and housewares too!  They even carry a cute selection of kids stuffies and books.  Not sure what to buy for the next house-warming or hostess gift?
