(White) Rocking in South Surrey: Jenny Bray of South Rock Buzz

I first stumbled across South Rock Buzz when I contemplating a move to South Surrey/ White Rock. Owned by Jenny Bray, its Instagram is full of family friendly events that helped to convince me that it was a great community to move to.

South Rock Buzz is an online community designed to connect and inform residents about all of the great things this community has to offer from highlighting local businesses, events, and other hidden gems throughout South Surrey and White Rock.

Farmhouse Goodness in White Rock: The Mason Jar

I first discovered The Mason Jar with my son, as I had been admiring their social media for months. He ran around saying “Everything is SO bee-you- ti-ful, mommy!” We have been back a few times and love how rustic and bright it is, as well as the local brands and rotating rustic décor. Every corner of this place is literally designed for Instagram. Check it out and you’ll agree. I’d love to hire Cathy to completely design my apartment.

Fraser Valley Feature: Photographer Cait Kennedy

“Competition makes us faster; Collaboration makes us better!” – Anonymous

In a community such as the Fraser Valley, there are going to be clicks and groupings that not everyone fits into. But with that being said, the community in the Valley is so vast and continues to grow each and everyday. Because of this wonderful community and “tribe” being built I have been fortunate to meet some amazing individuals; and Cait Kennedy is definitely one of them!

The Modern General Store: Bringing a Vancouver Vibe to South Surrey

It’s kind of an embarrassing story, but I first stumbled across The Modern General Store with my parents when
our GPS took us on a wild goose chase while we were looking for a place to get a snack. Once we finally found
our destination, we were struck by its unexpected warm and welcoming atmosphere and commitment to local
goods and provisions. I shared that it had an “urban-hipster” feel—which is a total a bonus in my books! Our
family has returned several times and are big fans of the Sunday brunch; my hubby loves the frittata, our kiddo
loves the waffles, and I love the trendy avocado toast.

Coffee For A Cause in Mission BC


As I walked up to the gorgeous heritage facade of The Penny Coffee on Mission’s historic 1st Ave, I was immediately struck by the carefully renovated exterior, which stands out bold and blue on a street lined with brick red and brown. Without even setting foot inside the space, I could tell the interior was going to be beautiful- and I was not disappointed.
