Lady Gaga’s concert at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

Virgin Radio has set up a photo booth to take pictures of the hardcore Lady Gaga fans, cool set up.

She was really funny, she has never smoked or bought cigarettes before. Her first pack of smokes was for the sunglasses, and she had to specifically ask for the ones with a yellow/brownish filter.

She’s super cute.


Amzing stage design which resembles New York. love love love

Bloody Gaga again.


One of the biggest production I have seen for concerts. 11 dancers + band and back up singers. Not to mention the extravagant stage designs and costumes.

My $40 Lady Gaga T-shirt :)

Lady Gaga performed this amazing new song at her concert and it just took my breath away. I can’t wait till the official release of it.

Funny how I was never a huge fan of her before, until I walked into her concert without any expectations and became totally infatuated with her after! She’s extremely talented. I think I have officially become one of her ‘little monsters’.

Love love love the new black jewel ring I bought in Venice Beach. Every time I look at it, I feel that it's telling me a story behind it. Definitely one of my favorite purchases from our LA trip. Bought this Talula sweater on sale for 50% off a few weeks ago and finally had the chance to wear it last week when the temperature dropped. It's more comfortable than I imagined and the perfect go-to sweater for lazy fall days. The Raw Diamond is going to the Talula Babaton F/W Trunk Show tonight and we can't wait to share our good finds. As excited as I am for a change of wardrobe and season, summer never feels long enough. Enjoy what's left of it everyone! xx.

Creme de la Crumb Bakeshop

Surely the cream of the crop.

Creme de la crumb has become the hot spot for breakfast and lunch for those who work in downtown, as it is conveniently located on West Pender and Granville in the heart of downtown. Even though they've only been opened for about 2 months, and their grand opening just 2 weeks ago, Creme de la Crumb has already made it to the #9 spot on Urbanspoon’s “Talk of the Town”, this is because their baked goods and sandwiches are to die for.

What makes Creme de la Crumb so special is that everything is freshly baked in the store and creative chef Lydia Lai combines extraordinary flavours to ordinary baked goods. Take for example, their vanilla pear scones, apple cheddar scones, and flavour of the week specials like pineapple dark chocolate scones. What also drew our attention was their cranberry and dark chocolate rice crispies. Talk about being unique!

I would highly recommend this amazing bakeshop to everyone.. but please be aware: their scrumptious scones and cinnamon buns are highly addictive! I'm drooling as I am typing right now. Part of me wishes that I worked and lived in downtown, so I could have their fluffy scones for breakfast everyday.

Here are the pictures of my favourite bakeshop:

- City of Angels -

It's been two weeks since we, the girls of Raw Diamond came back from a fun filled weekend in L.A. Spent a whole lotta money, made plenty o' good memories, and gained a hefty 10 lbs.! Totally worth the $$ airfare to sunny Los Angeles, California.


  • experiencing thee most amaaazzzzinnggg Ban Xeos for the very first time
  • laughing till our tummies hurt and some of us farted (lol)
  • visiting shady late night massage parlors for as little as $9.99!!!
  • realizing how sketchy some parts of LA can be, namely Venice Beach and Santee Alley. There were couple instances where we had to put our cameras away in fear of being robbed. *cringes*
  • LA clubs closing earlier than Vancouver clubs. Heh, who knew...

As many times as some of us have been to LA, it's safe to say that LA never gets old.
Until next time, beautiful palm trees and shady camera-staring latinos.

Prettiest Girls by Pharrell, from Despicable Me. Catchy.

I love the Minions!!! SO CUTE I COULD DIE!!
