If you live in the Vancouver area then you may already be well aware that the weather forecast through the weekend is not looking so good. It’s been rather hot + muggy lately which has only encouraged Mother Nature to rain down on us. While some may not agree, + surely I do love a hot Summer’s day, with age I’ve learned to enjoy each season. I don’t even mind the rain – it’s an excuse to slow down, light my favorite candle + a chance to wear that cozy sweater + leggings that our recent hot weather wouldn’t permit. So, despite this weekend’s weather woe’s, relax + enjoy it!
If by some sort of twisted mishap you missed the (BIG) news … my favorite PARTYSKIRTS are now available on shopbop! I couldn’t be more proud + inspired by the two little ladies behind the brand. Local to Vancouver + obvious dreamers at heart, these girls are taking things to a new level. Talk about a success story – I want one in every color!
It’s as if a plague took over my otherwise consistently healthy + immune strong body + told me to hit snooze. After an entire week solid of feeling sick + run-down, i’m finding it difficult to continue my regular workout routine of 5x week boxing + kickboxing training. Because I have been feeling so weak, I made the un-wanted decision to take the week to let my body heal with rest.
What’s most frustrating is feeling like my week off of training has lost with it all the work I’d been putting in to help tone my muscles. So, in much need of motivation to get back into my routine, I decided to put together some workout inspiration to help get me motivated + excited about making the trek into the boxing studio after putting in a full-days work (+ commute). Maybe it just might spark something in you to keep moving too!
Summer is in full swing + in Vancouver we’ve been receiving gifts of Vitamin D on the regular. I love exploring new products that will get me that ‘healthy glow’ + experimenting with some more daring (if you will) trends that might not make the cut during the darker more dreary months. Bright nails, fresh dewy makeup + big wavy, beachy hair are just a few of my favorites for beach season. As for my current summer loves, I’ve got you covered on all your beauty essentials & trends for this season.
Are there any products that are not on my list that I should not miss?! Feel free to comment below – beauty reco’s welcomed!

I’m a big fan of Warby Parker Eyewear, so I was tickled pink when they asked me to help introduce the launch of their newest collection: Ocean Avenue! Besides offering a range of cleverly designed vintage-inspired frames, the reason I love this brand so much is because they are a socially conscious business. For every pair of glasses purchased, another pair is given to someone in need – how amazing is that!? Let’s get ready for summer + help out someone in need by heading over to the Warby Parker website for a closer peek at all the greatness they have to offer! I’ve also shared some of my favorites from the collection, paired with some summer essentials – which ones are your favorite?!

Thank you to everyone at JC Studios for the wonderful evening!
