The Perfect Field

STYLE & BEAUTY
1

Imagine you are driving around with your sister/friend in the car and the kids in the back seat. The music is playing and you have no particular destination except to find an empty field with a mountainous view in the background. We were coming back from a little small shop browsing and coffee, taking a stroll through the side roads.

We passed a few great fields, but the car tailing our rear made us not feel like it was the best time to swerve to the side. One turn to the left and we were on a quite road that neither of us had taken anymore. We were getting sick of searching for the perfect spot and decided that the next mailbox pull out we would stop.

“There’s one on the right!”

As we come close to the pull out we look at the field to the left and to our surprise, the field was full — blanketed — in white swans. We were giddy. I grabbed my things, darted out the door and was ready to share how I styled my vegan leather jacket by Mink Pink available in Canada through Citizen Grace.

My sister stayed in the car with the kids and took picture of me from her car like she was an undercover detective and I was in the middle of a scandal. The best past was that when I got across the road and looked back at my sister I noticed that the house we parked in front of had a tripod set up and were also trying to take photos of their own. I think I might be captured in a few of theirs now too! #bloggers

  • 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€
