I have been smiling from ear to ear since my best friend Dani arrived from Toronto Thursday night. You can probably tell from this blog post, which consists of a lot of smiles. I've decided to go in a little bit of a different direction with my blog (after talking with Dani.) I want to share snippets into my life here on the west coast rather than what's in style for summer etc. Don't worry I won't be changing much, my love of art, fashion, food and travel will still be all over the blog. However, you might hear more about what I'm up to on a day to day basis. Hope you enjoy it and feel like you can follow along in my little west coast bubble I live in, and love.
This past weekend, Dani and I had a lot of time to catch up, which was so good for us. We have been best friends for almost 10 years now. We went to Ryerson University together for Fashion Design and pretty much kept each other sane through our first year. Friendships like this are hard to come by, we have so much in common and we teach each other so much too. It felt like Christmas counting down for her and her husband's arrival in Ucluelet. They are spending a week with us before they head to Vancouver for some city exploring. I'm so happy to have her here, you can only say so much over Skype!
For my weekend (Friday and Saturday,) we were on our own as our men went camping off of Kennedy Lake. We had a great first day of properly catching up too. It started with coffee and lunch at Zoe's Bakery and Cafe in Ucluelet then some shopping and photo shoots. I brought her to all my favourite spots, Gypsy Drifter and The Den, where she had fun looking through their vintage selections. As it began to rain we headed home for an afternoon of chilling. We binge watched The Fashion Fund on Netflix and it felt like we had never been apart. I don't know if any of you have a friend like this, but she really gets me through and through. And she gets so excited about photographing me for the blog. She's unbelievably creative and I can't wait to see what the rest of our week together brings us! Stay tuned for more of our adventures and photos on my Instagram!
