Comments Off on All Dressed Up & No Where to Go

In January when my friend Steph [@stefunny] was visiting we decided to plan a little styled shoot. Steph in from Manitoba but came out to visit her sister (and also my good friend, @adrienneneufeld). The three of us and Roxann [@mauve.hair.design] got together one rainy morning and one objective, get dressed up and take some photos. With all the rain, we needed a Plan B. Outside photos were no longer an option anymore. That’s when we thought about taking photos in a greenhouse.

I knew my friend Keisha [@lovinglittlesblog] had taken photos at Minter Country Garden in Chilliwack before, and they turned out stunning! With a quick message to Keisha, she set up for us to go that morning. Yay! Such a blessing! So thankful for Keisha’s willingness to support and connect us.

The morning there was pretty funny, swapping outfits in the back of the greenhouses, trying to avoid any regular shoppers from spotting. Steph did such an amazing job with the photos. So in love with all of them. But as you look at the photos, just remember, there was a lot going on in the background. ha! This shoot was hilarious, chaotic, wet, muddy and so much fun.

After we left the Greenhouse we decided to head to Cultus Lake to snap some photos there too. Even though it was still raining, we wanted to see what we could get. If our hair and faces got rained on we already knew we got some good shots at Minter Gardens. The photos at the lake were just as beautiful, I’ll be sharing those in another post soon.

Thanks so much to Steph [Steph Schulz Photography] for collaborating on the photos, our skirts were borrowed from Aniela [@aniela.ca], hair by Roxann [Mauve Hair Design], Minter Gardens [@mintergardening] in Chilliwack and for the beautiful florals by Bernadette [Sequel Events].

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and Iโ€™m so glad I didnโ€™t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜ณ) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. Iโ€™ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) theyโ€™ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. โ€” @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco โ€” @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. โ€” @jamprco is a local PR company that Iโ€™ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Letโ€™s make some peoples days and share the โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think โ€œthis, this is a moment they are going to remember.โ€ Itโ€™s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, โ€œthis is their childhood, this is what they will remember.โ€
