FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR CITY

Since moving across the country to university, I've had time to reflect on my home city! It took being a six hour plane (and five provinces away) to really realize how lucky I am that Vancouver, B.C is home to me! This post will be all about the places/reasons I love in/about Vancouver!

1. The Sea Wall/Stanley Park!
If you are from or have ever been to Vancouver you should be familiar with this! For me, there is no better way to relax than a run on the sea wall or a day at Stanley park! The sea wall spans fourteen kilometres around downtown Vancouver and Stanley park is on the back end of the sea wall! There's both bike and walk paths, outdoor pools, water parks, restaurants with beautiful views, and a lot of smiley faces :)

2. The MOST amazing coffee shops!
To name a few: Paralel 49th, Platform 7, The art gallery cafe, Bel Cafe, Pallet Coffee Roaster! I am always able to be productive working at these Coffee Shops/Cafe's.

3. Downtown Vancouver/Gastown!
Two of the most beautiful areas to be! Downtown is surrounded by water which makes for great views! There is super good shopping and a lot of nice restaurants too! Gastown always has the best vibe! There are some more alternative shops/restaurants in Gastown so if you're looking for something a little more alternative definitely check it out!

4. Grouse Mountain/Squamish Chief/Quarry Rock
My three favourite hikes in the Vancouver area! Vancouver definitely doesn't lack nature and its super refreshing to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city sometimes! These three hikes all have different yet equally beautiful views which definitely make the hike up worth it!

These are just a few things I love about my city! If you're ever in Vancouver (and even if you live there) make sure you check out these spots above!

XX,
Danika

Five Things I Wish I Knew Going Into First Year University!!

As summer comes to an end, it's time for all the students to prepare for the next year of studies! I'm going into my second year and really looking forward to it! I've created a list of five things I wish I knew before going into first year university. This list is purely created based on experience. Feel free to share with anyone you know heading off to post secondary education as it may not only apply to first years! I live in Vancouver and go to school in Ontario so this list may be a little biased for the people who are leaving home as that is my experience! Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy and I hope this helps you in some way!

1. FACETIME is a life changer and when you're away from your family and friends it can at times be the only thing that gets you through the inevitable home sick days so USE it.
2. Organize yourself BEFORE school starts. This could include an agenda, making sure your room is organized, creating a workout schedule, etc.
3. Even though university…

RYU Fall Launch & Mental Health Awareness Day Campaign!!

RYU dropped some new stuff for fall and I've been loving it so I thought I'd share! Their brand is all about respecting yourself, others, and the universe! As I've mentioned before on my blog, Respect Your Universe is an urban athletic apparel company created and based in Vancouver! I've been an RYU Campus Connector for almost a year and it has definitely made me feel like I'm a part of something bigger! Go check out RYU at their four locations in the Vancouver area (Robson, West fourth, West Van, and Metrotown) or on their website @ www.ryu.com to get some gear and represent Respect Your Universe with me! The staff and everyone involved in RYU are all super motivating and supportive people and I'm super lucky to be involved with such a cool company!


RYU has a mental health awareness campaign for the month of November. "We're all fighting battles others know nothing about. Today is World Mental Health Day - If you're struggling with he pressures of…
