Since working with Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon , I discovered that they have a wonderful initiative called Home for Dinner , where we can celebrate the tradition of sharing a meal together while supporting a great cause. And with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time to combine my passions for hosting and charitable giving to help benefit families that are staying at RMH BC. This idea really inspired me to gather my generous friends for a “Friendsgiving” dinner along with some amazing charitable partners like the Stanley Park Brewing Restaurant & Brewpub, Taffete Designs and Riversol to create a memorable night of giving; and hopefully, motivate others to host their very own Home for Dinner fundraising event this holiday season.
On a sunny Wednesday evening I met my husband after work in the trendy neigbourhood of Gastown Vancouver for our first date night in a long time and we checked out a beautiful German restaurant called Bauhaus. Located at the corner of West Cordova and Carrall, I actually haven’t heard about Bauhaus before but thanks to Moneris I was able to experience, reconnect and enjoy an amazing dining experience with my husband that night
As you probably know Adelina turned 1 in June and we celebrated in a big way on Father’s Day surrounded by close friends and family! Today, I want to share intimate details from the party from the décor to candid moments and all the festivities that went on like a traditional Korean ceremony called Doljabi and Smash Cake which was the highlight of the day! For anyone looking to plan a 1 year birthday I hope Adelina’s party would bring some magical inspiration!

Everyone deserves a good night’s rest, so if you have trouble sleeping like so many others I highly recommend the Leesa® mattress. Born out of this same concern, the founders of Leesa® wanted to create a mattress that was not only comfortable but affordable at the same time by taking out the middleman. With this direct-to-consumer idea, Leesa® the online mattress store was imagined- to reinvent the sleep experience one mattress at a time! This spring as we welcome a new baby into our lives, we knew we needed to have as much rest as possible before the baby comes. So as we renovate our home and our bedroom, I knew that the first piece of furniture I needed was to find a good mattress. I was fortunate enough to be sent one to review and I have to say my results have been very positive. So continue reading and see how the Leesa® mattress can transform your sleep as well.
Today is a magical day because I celebrate 2 years in blogging :) Looking back at my first blog post, I realized how far it has come and I am both proud and grateful. Like destiny, I was looking to create something special for my blog anniversary and Jana from Billie + Peaches, a photographer from Perth Australia was in town and contacted me for a photo shoot. I said yes of course and asked if she knew any good makeup artist and she introduced me to Ksenia who happens to work at the cutest beauty parlour in town, The Glamoury. All the stars aligned and we were able to create an amazing shoot featuring four outfits to celebrate another milestone year on Glamouraspirit.
