About

Hello! I'm Yemina. I'm a twenty-something-year-old Brit currently residing in Vancouver, BC. I moved here in October 2016 with my boyfriend, Will, after visiting several times on holiday and falling in love with the city. We both decided we wanted to make the move and go on an adventure, so we did!

I started 'yemina.co.uk' a few years ago as a beauty/makeup blog where I could write product reviews but as it happened, my interests changed slightly and I decided that I wanted to start again from the beginning and expand my horizons from more than just beauty.

I am using this blog to write about my adventures abroad and just as a nice hobby to keep me occupied on rainy days... and trust me, we have a lot of these in Vancouver.

10 Things you should know about me:

  1. I am a big fan of minimalism.
  2. I wish I was a cool French girl. Jeanne Demas is my girl crush.
  3. I love Marmite, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who I miss so much.
  4. I love Marmite.
  5. I wear one colour palette: black, grey, white, grey, black, black and denim (I'm trying to branch out slightly).
  6. I cannot drink caffeine but I do eat green tea ice cream... I probably shouldn't.
  7. My family is the most important thing to me.
  8. I think that chokers are the worst thing to happen to fashion.
  9. Notting Hill and Love Actually are my favourite films.
  10. The entire world is on my bucket list.
