Blogger Spotlight

I know I’m not the only girl whose Pinterest, Bloglovin and Instagram feeds are filled with images/posts from bloggers, these are the best places to get outfit or styling inspiration. I follow a handful of local bloggers – To Vogue Or Bust, Alicia Fashionista, Bleed For Fashion, The Starving Stylist and Discovering Elegance – the list could go on! (I actually went to Blanche Macdonald in Vancouver with Peter of The Starving Stylist and I remember when he was starting up his blog; keep up the great work love!) Then of course there are those bloggers that everyone knows, who mainly reside in the US, like Man Repeller, Devon Rachel, Cupcakes and Cashmere, Eat Sleep Wear and The Blonde Salad.

One of my absolute favourites though is Julia Engel of the fabulous blog Gal Meets Glam! This beauty is from San Fransisco,  California and has impeccable style. Her outfits are flawlessly styled, capture that classic look and she always looks amazing. Print mixing isn’t for everyone but this girl can pull it off! She also got married a little over a year ago and I definitely have looked to pictures from her wedding as inspiration for mine as well. Also she’s very good at making a ponytail look good (or any updo for that matter) which is something I’ve yet to accomplish. I’ve gathered some of my favourite outfit posts from her blog (there are far too many to choose from!) to share with you. Now it’s time for me to do some outfit planning myself for the work week ahead.

Happy Sunday!

Workspace Makeover – Inspiration

I am SO desperately in need of my own work space. As you probably already know I am still currently living at my folks place since I just finished school and started my career. So I don’t have an option of changing an entire room into an office. Unfortunately that means I am stuck with turning my bedroom into a bedroom and an office. And that almost makes me not want to do it but I figure I will be living here at least until the end of the year so I might as well do it! I need a space where I can work when I work from home and blog in my spare time.

I find it hard to get inspiration when I don’t have a comfortable work space that can spark up some ideas. I have been looking on Pinterest for some home office suggestions that I can use in my space. I settled on using a lot of white, which will go nicely with my light grey walls. I also want to put something on my wall above my desk, something that will help with brain storming ideas. Here are some inspirational pictures I got off of Pinterest. I will be starting my work space this weekend so hopefully I will be done soon so you can show how it turns out!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

As soon as I saw photos of mini pumpkins surfacing on Instagram I knew I wanted to pick up a few to decorate my condo with – they are just too cute! Especially the white ones, but unfortunately I couldn’t find them anywhere. I also had a little vase that I wanted to fill with  Halloween candy but I wanted to buy something that I wouldn’t be tempted to eat so I went with candy corn. Call me crazy but I’m just not a big fan of it, however, I have been guilty of snacking on them. (I have to add that the vase wasn’t full when I put the candy in it).

Here are a few photos of how I added some Fall decor to our place, which will be replaced with Holiday decor before I know it. I didn’t go as far as making them gold or glittery but definitely will get more creative next year!
