I know it's tough to get inspired by 'Spring Fashion' - particularly because there's still snow on the ground... but that's what Spring Break is for! Am I right....?
Happy Valentine's Day, friends!
I hope everyone is feeling the warm fuzzies this morning! I certainly am after spending a wonderful holiday in Hawaii with some of my family.
I can’t believe it’s been a year and a half since I moved to Vancouver… and I still haven’t explored the hell out of it like one should. Before today, I had only hiked two trails (Quarry Rock + NorVan Falls - both beginner level and lovely). Today… well, today was a bit more challenging (for me, anyhow) and let’s just say the views were undeniably worth my struggle (red wine may or may have not been consumed the night prior!).
It comes as no surprise that 2016 has been labeled "The Year of Video Marketing". It's been said that the human brain can process images 60,000 times faster than it does text. And why would you want to overwhelm your family, friends or customers with a bunch of jargon anyways? For instance, would you rather read through those instructions that came with your Smashbox Contour Kit or watch a one-minute lesson by your favourite beauty blogger? While we still appreciate the value of photography and 140-character blurbs (not too sure if we can get away with absolutely no text juuuuust yet...), you've heard it before and you'll hear it from us... short-form social and brand videos are where it's at!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted something and that was one thing I promised myself I wouldn’t let slip. Ah well, life happens. But I’ve been working with some amazing women lately and it just so happens that a few of them were vacationing in the same place that I was last week… in Palm Desert.
As some of you may already know, I work 1 - 2 days a week at Vancouver's loveliest store, [Violet Boutique]. It's a dangerous little place - a place that I sought out to rely on consistent income, and yet my cheque seems to go back into the store quite regularly.
It was such a pleasure working with Doctors of BC and their Insurance Team. Rather than providing the typical "Lunch & Learn", my friend proposed a 1-2 minute film as a way to showcase their department's services. As someone who has worked in the medical field, I appreciate their approach in protecting what matters most to their members. Thank you for this amazing opportunity, Doctors of BC!

Okay, wow. First of all, Happy New Year!
It was so much fun being apart of Garnier Ombrelle's 25th Anniversary Cruise! I was able to attend on behalf of Sparkle Media while founder and principal, Erin Sousa, is away on her honeymoon!
What a crazy past few weeks it has been at Sparkle Media!
From finalizing things for the end of a contract to preparing the launch of some new ones, we have also had the pleasure of being involved with a number of exciting events!
A common fall/winter fashion trend that has taken me a while to grasp is... the fur vest. Because I tend to be a bit heavier in my mid-section, I have never found a vest that looked, well, flattering. The nice thing about them, however, is that they can be paired with almost anything and worn any season.
I mistakenly made the assumption that October was a bit of an odd month to visit Whistler. You know, not warm enough to enjoy the lakeside views... nor cold enough to rip it up down the mountain. Yet, October has got to be the most perfect month.
It's hard to believe that the first day of fall has already come and gone. It had been the most unbelievable summer and the sun is STILL shining! That's what I love about the west coast… the weather is so unpredictable.
I was fortunate enough to stumble across this scarf (i.e. blanket) in the Athens airport as I was waiting for my flight to return home (can I get a hallelujah for airports with reasonable shopping?).
