As @melrobbinslive says “Repeat after me - everything I need is already within me. 💫 It can be the most frustrating way of learning but really there is no other way to change. ✨ We always look for answers outside ourselves thinking that a new thing (insert course, product, amount of money, amount of time, etc...) will change everything. I still think like that so much of the time & it is a really hard habit to change. The truth is that all the answers lie within us. The key is to get quiet enough to hear them. 💛 Let me know if you agree & if you’ve taken time for yourself today. #givinggiftsca#givinggiftsquotes#qotd#quotes#melrobbinslive
Photography: it has lead me on an ever-evolving journey of self-discovery and exploration. At my root, travel is what keeps me alive. I want to travel, grow and develop as a photographer without affecting my daily life. So I decided to place myself in a big enough city to get lost in frequently. A place that I can explore and discover something new every day with the purpose of shooting. And what better place to undertake the challenge than in my second home; British Columbia, Canada. With the entire Metro Vancouver Area as my playground, I'm going to challenge myself to take a photo in a new place every day for 30 days!
Day one of my challenge starts with the most iconic park in Vancouver: Stanley Park. If you haven't heard of Stanley Park, you will now! It was rated one of the top 10 parks in the world according to reviews submitted on the popular travel site, TripAdvisor. It even beat out New York's Central Park! The thing is a massive 1000 acres and boasts over half a million trees.
My goal was to photograph this iconic boulder called Siwash Rock. I timed my journey around the park perfectly (for once, time is on my side) to end up here at sunset. I walked around the seawall until I caught the light peaking out behind the rocks. This was my moment. Don't you love it when your plans actually work out!?
The first theme for Global Entrepreneurship Week is women!
It has been said that the increasing rates of women who are becoming entrepreneurs will have the same positive effect that the entry of women into the labor force did. This means economic growth, closing the gap of gender equality and so many other progressive results.
Here is to all of the hard-working women who have, are in the process of, and are thinking about starting-up a business of their own! ♀️🌍 #HappyGlobalEntrepreneurshipWeek#GEW2018

Didn’t get to go on a whale watching trip? 🥺🥺🥺
Don’t worry you can still tell everyone you saw a whale. Once we left Victoria for the bright lights of Van City the last thing I expected to see was a whale. Granted it’s not real, but get down to the harbour and there it is, breaching out from the sidewalk, the digital Orca. 🐋😲🐳
😍 Squad goals!
Sometimes we get clients with hook-ups, and sometimes the venue is so exclusive that we’re not allowed to say where this rooftop wedding took place. 😉 Sorry!
Whatever venue you have in mind, we’ll work with you to make it wedding-ready! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Lamborghini Calgary's very own @damon_ockey is in Italy for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World Finals.
"I'm really happy to be in Italy to race the World Finals," Ockey said. "The team has done a lot of work to get the car ready and I'm really happy with it. I need to make up six points in order to win the North American championship, so that's my goal these next two races. Then I'll look forward to the World Finals. So, right now I'm focused on the first two races and then I'll worry about the next two races after that." #LamborghiniVancouver#LamborghiniCalgary

“I don't go looking for inspiration intentionally, but it comes from where I was brought up and where I lived. My favourite motif is the dragon. Growing up in Beijing, I'd see such monuments and statues even on a leisurely stroll after dinner. I feel that it represents a very important aspect and period of Chinese culture. [...] I think that fashion shouldn't just be about the present, and I care more about the meaning behind the details. As such, the embroidery and motifs you see on my clothing have stories behind them.”- @guopei
#GuoPei : #CoutureBeyond , now on view through January 29, features more than forty breathtaking designs by China’s foremost couturière. In 2006, nearly a decade after the launch of her atelier #RoseStudio in 1997, Guo Pei debuted her first couture runway collection, #Samsara , which included this gown, to positive reviews from international media and the fashion world during #ChinaInternationalFashionWeek in Beijing. The collection’s delicate embroidery combines Chinese and Western artisanship, giving life to its embroidered #dragon pattern. See this gorgeous gown and many more at the Gallery today!
