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!

Work/Girls Night Outfit

So apparently I am one of those people that need a vacation after a vacation. Actually I was sick over my entire Christmas break and cracked my rib so technically it didn’t really feel like a vacation. So I am currently resting my rib all week in my home away from home. But before I arrived here I decided to do a outfit post before leaving. This outfit is perfect for when I go to work or out for dinner with some girl friends. And I am still loving the colour berry that was so popular in the fall. Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Can’t believe we’re already halfway through October, which means that today is…my BIRTHDAY!

I celebrated over the weekend with family and friends which also happened to be a long weekend for us Canadians because yesterday was Thanksgiving.

Saturday night was my celebration with my friends – we took a limo to a bar called the Lamplighter in Gastown which is in downtown Vancouver. It was so much fun! Then Sunday morning my fiance and I went over to my mom & step-dad’s to have brunch with them, as well as my brother and sister. It was very yummy – we had a variety of quiches, sausage, pineapple, croissants, tater tots & of course mimosas! Last week when my fiance and I went to Whistler for a few nights, we had an early birthday dinner together at the Keg and it was really nice.

I’m very lucky that the company I work for gives us our birthday as a paid day off, and this day happens to be the last of my 11 day staycation. It’s going to be weird going back to work tomorrow after so many days off, also because I will be at my new store. So I plan on enjoying the day by spending it with two of the most important people in my life! I’m meeting my mom for lunch, using birthday money to get my hair done and then meeting up with my dad for dinner. Normally I would never eat out twice in one day (with the exception of vacations) but it’s my birthday! And I have boot camp the next two evenings.
