Today is my birthday. I’m astonished (and weirded out) that I’m close to leaving my 20s! When I was a kid, I never understood why adults always say “where did the time go?”. I get it now. I really do! Just the other day, I reflected back on my “early 20s” and can’t believe so much has changed since then.

Today, to celebrate my 28th birthday with you all, I want to share 28 things I’ve learned in life thus far. I’ve always enjoyed these entries because it allows me to get a glimpse of how others grew up. My list…

I’m a huge fan of true crime. Not sure how or where it started, but I loooove a good true crime book and podcasts. Am I the only one that enjoys cleaning the kitchen while learning about how Bob murdered a family of 6?

This is so different from shopping online with a retailer because returns are basically non-existent. You can only return items that were damaged or misrepresented – not because you didn’t like the colour on you or the sizing was off. Seriously, just ask the seller any question that comes to mind! Ask for more pictures! Ask what the measurements are! Ask what…

We’ve all been there. We’ve all had those moments when we realize we need to save money, but for some “strange” reason, we catch ourselves still spending money!

Hi there! Welcome to Eleventh Avenue! I’m so excited to start this lifestyle blog again and share this passion project with you. Who am I? My name is Claire! I live in Vancouver, Canada with my husband and in my spare time, I enjoy working out, catching the latest movie or series on Netflix, listening to true crime podcasts, and when I can, I love to travel. I’ve been blogging for more than a decade now. I started off as a personal blogger but back then it was just known as an online diary/journal.
