Girl Around Town: Vol 1

Once upon a time I blogged almost every outfit I wore, and it was kind of fun, but since changing the site to reflect my new interests I’ve really slacked off on sharing  outfits.

In an effort to keep myself accountable to dressing up daily, I’ve decided to start this weekly space to share some of my outfits and adventures from the week.

Side note: The idea for this series occurred to me well after these events so I only have pics from my phone this week. I will also make a better effort to capture the entire outfit for the next post!

One: Ze Bite Food Truck Tasting

I’m the first person to admit that food trucks don’t usually interest me. Most of them offer greasy food that is very wheat based, and the whole idea of eating on the side of the street; it’s not my thing. Thankfully, my foodie friend Rebecca floated the idea that we should trying to capture a little piece of France in Vancouver via Ze Bite.

She figured that since hanging out under the Eiffel Tower is on my 35 before 35 list, eating crepes at Ze Bite could be a sort of ‘practice run’ for my big trip. It also helps that all the crepes are gluten free! I learned a lot about French food and fashion from that visit which I’ll break down in an upcoming post, for now – just go visit Ze Bite it is so worth it! The crepes are super stuffed and super delicious, I’m planning a trip back for a Nutella crepe. If you are in the Vancouver area, you can find them parked around the 8 or 900 block on West Cordova.

Two: Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat Workshop

I wasn’t really sure what to expect at a workshop on car seat safety, but boy am I glad we went! Not only did I get to catch up with some of my favourite blog world girlfriends (Jill, Salma, and Sarah from left to right), I also learned that Zara was in the wrong booster seat! If you have kids in a car seat or booster, or know someone who does, I highly recommend visiting on of Chevy’s free car seat safety workshops. Check out their website for details on how to register!

Three: Digitally Yours Monthly Meetup

Our recent Digitally Yours meetup was held at Bare Essentials Skin Bar in Vancouver, which is an express facial bar; what a cool concept! Since it was one of the first warm evenings of the year and we were talking about being authentic, I took my cue from the cherry blossoms and my girl Minnie.

Four: Faculty of Celeb Studies with Lainey Gossiplainey gossip

This was the surprise of my week! I went to this event fully expecting Lainey to talk about her new book; instead she totally blew my mind with a conversation on concious uncoupling, Miley Cyrus, and rape culture. It was a really thought provoking afternoon, and I’m still working through everything I learned (chai chat coming soon), but my biggest takeaway; gossip isn’t always bad. Lainey really showed me that discussing other people doesn’t have to be bad, it can actually be a lens into your own life. I promise to elaborate soon. 

Five: One on One Dates

Last week I got to spend some time just hanging out and goofing off with Mr. T – no work or kids talk, it was really nice. I also took my princess out for a one one breakfast date and got all the low down on how tough grade 1 really is. This week I’m due for a catch-up with my boy; in fact, as soon as I hit publish I’m going to make some calls about getting a golf lesson for the both of us!

What have you been up to lately?
