Odds & Ends: Martinis, Puppies & J.Crew in Vancouver

I actually got reprimanded for not blogging from a coworker yesterday. This week was pretty mental but I figured I’d wrap up the week with some random picks and get back to regularly scheduled blogging next week.

1) Two weeks ago I was living it up in Victoria on a foodie tour. On this trip, I was introduced to the Empress 1908, a tea-infused martini, at the Bengal Lounge in the Fairmont Hotel. It’s the best martini I have had hands down (and yes, it comes with a mini scone!). Read more about my foodie adventures here.

2) We just found out our apartment is pet-friendly! We are now looking for a one of these (a Bo-Dach, a cross between a Boston Terrier and Dachshund). Know of any? Send ‘em my way!

3) I decided that I will run the BMO half in May and will train for a full in the fall of this year. Pretty sure I deserve a new running top.

4) Vancouver peeps! J.Crew is opening up on Robson…if Jenna Lyons rolls into town you know where I’ll be.

5) On that note J.Crew’s spring collection is chock full of clothes I want to see hanging in my closet. I think this dress (which went on sale today!) is going to be a summer staple. What are you adding to your closet for spring?
