I had a chance to attend a Master Margarita mixing class with @liquicon and the fabulous @reecesims - we sampled some delicious @herradurateq tequila and we even got to make our own creations using @herradurateq silver tequila. check out the MaryinVancity Margarita! I used Herradura tequila, pineapple syrup, orange juice, a splash of soda and a touch of fresh jalapeño. Then I garnished it with pink Himalayan salt and a pineapple slice. So yummy. This spirit is so smooth and sampling the different ages of tequila was such a treat, and drinking of course is always better with friends. Am I right @magmei? I’m usually a white tequila girl myself, but after trying Herradura Añejo I might be switching sides! You can find Herradura at your local Liquor store. #herradurayvr 📷: @danch2night . . . . . : . . #yvr #yvrevents #yvrinfluencer #vancouverinfluencer #herraduratequila #vancouverblogger #foodblogger #foodinfluencer #drinkstagram #cocktails #margarita #cocktailporn #drinksofinstagram
Greetings from #SookeBC! We stayed at the @sookeharbourresort and we were so comfortable in our own private penthouse suite. Our suite was fully furnished, and amenities included a fully-stocked kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, washer and dryer, hot tubs, and even an outdoor BBQ. The resort has its own marina and we loved walking on the docks looking for wildlife. We didn’t want to leave! . . . . . . . #exploresooke #discoversooke #explorebc #vancouverblogger #vancouvermom #travellingwithkids #travelling #travelblogger #travelinfluencer #mominfluencer #yvrinfluencer #explorevancouverisland #truekey #sookeharbourresort #sooke
So while I received many encouraging and supporting messages on my Instagram stories about doing the @vancouversunrun - there were a *few* messages that made fun of my slow running or the fact that I approached the finish line with people walking beside me. The one that kinda irritated me focused on the person pushing the stroller by as I struggle to make it to the finish line. . Speaking frankly here, let’s make one thing clear: I’m the type of person that likes to lift people up, and one of my favourite things about myself is that I don’t look for a lot of external validation. I appreciate and cherish the support of my friends and family and I don’t take it for granted. Instagram is a wonderful platform that we can use to lift each other up and encourage others to live to their full and healthier potentials. So when complete strangers chose to focus on the negative struggles of a middle age, overweight mom.... Well, that’s your choice. But let’s go on record saying that it’s not a good choice. Secondly, I recorded my Sun Run because I want to encourage other women to live healthier lives. I made myself a promise last year that I needed to be a healthier and happier role model for my son. And I’m keeping that promise. Besides, if I post about going to a fun event or to a dinner, why not post about doing a 10k run? . Thirdly, you know what? I’m not blind, I see everything you see in this video, the people walking, the stroller, and the middle age, overweight mom struggling to make it to the finish line. But you know what else I see? . . . 🏃♀️ Almost four months of training . 🏃♀️ Determination . 🏃♀️ Will power . 🏃♀️ the encouraging and support of my sister @bailamefitness who gave up her Sunday to be with me thru (literally!) rain and hail. . . If those negative comments were meant to crush my spirit or make me doubt myself - they’ve failed miserably. I’m proud of myself, I’m happy with myself. I will continue my health journey strong and confidently. Oh and BTW... I’m only in competition with myself, and that’s the only thing that counts.
