Violet and Olive

August 9, 2017

Violet and Olive is a hand made in Canada, small fashion brand curated by a hometown friend of mine, Carlee Heinz. She moved from Winnipeg to Vancouver to pursue an education and career in fashion and started this small brand for women who are always looking for the latest trends. She wanted to motivate people to stop purchasing from fast fashion companies and believes her well priced and fashion forward garments (both lingerie and swim) are a more positive alternative.

The Fable: Silk Shirts and their stories

Ashley and Arika gravel pit déjà vu? Well yes, almost two years ago my sister Arika and I did a “sister shoot” at this exact gravel pit in Birds Hill Manitoba. That day marked the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the talented artist and sweet soul, photographer Vanessa Mayberry!

Amansala Eco-Chic Resort Tulum

May 22, 2017

The beaches of the Mayan Riviera are some of the most beautiful in the world. When I first visited Tulum 10 years ago, it was just an up and coming yet “hip” spot that attracted experienced travellers from all over the world. It was quiet, people camped on the beach, as there were only a few boutique hotels. Now it is a international hot spot for all those seeking white sand, laid back vibes, but upscale bohemian lifestyle. Amansala Eco-Chic Resort  Tulum encapsulates the spirit of beach life in Tulum. Peaceful atmosphere, minimal and comfortable rooms, open air commune spaces for yoga, working out, eating, pool hanging, dining, enjoying a bon fire or a mid day hammock hang, and more.
