WANT Apothecary

Founded in Montreal three years ago, with its Toronto store opening earlier this year, it was only a matter of time until WANT Apothecary made its way to the streets of Vancouver.

And according to Newman, that dynamism is very much by design.

Michael Brock | "Scorpio" Official Video [Worldwide Premiere]

This song is really good. I was listening to it one night and this weird commercial came on for what I thought was rings. I mean there were a lot of shots of hands, nice hands, with this great ring and sweet finger tats but it turns out it was actually a commercial for these new showers.
