Good Things Come in Threes

If you can believe it, this is already our third blogger meetup!  Aside from the fact that we didn’t have the lovely Lynn of hearted girl this time around (you were missed, Lynn!), these things just keep getting better and better.  We had our normal crew in attendance as well as Cara of A Fashion Love Affair, Mina of Faboulista, and Louise of Fifth Sparrow.  I’ve said it before and I’m going to have to say it again, but I can’t get over how much fun I have with this group of girls.  It feels like I’ve known all of them for ages. We already have exciting plans for our next meetup (kudos to Alicia for coming up with the idea for it!) and I’m already on the edge of my seat in anticipation.  Here’s a hint as to where we’ll be headed: think hats.

We had a picnic at Stanley Park…sooooo much amazing food.  We managed to make a bit of a dent in it, but come on…we’re a bunch of girls intent on talking. I think our liquid lunches usually vanish a bit more quickly.  That and it was also freezing because we decided (on my suggestion) to sit in the windiest part of the park, so we could hardly unpin our arms from our sides.  My bad!

The beautiful Alicia of aliciafashionista with her handsome and very kind boyfriend Adam.  It seems that each time we have one of these meetups, one of the boyfriends/husbands is inevitably delegated the task of taking all of our pictures.  What fun for them (not)!  Thanks for stepping up to the plate this round Adam!

Yesterday was the first time I met the stunning Cara of A Fashion Love Affair and it was such a treat!  Intelligent, funny, and she makes one hell of a guacamole.

Unfortunately my pictures of Cee from Coco and Vera are blurry for some bizarre reason so her beauty and fabulous outfit are not really done justice!  Either way, it was amazing as ever to see Cee…I always love her wry humour and, being the lovely person that she is, she’s so easy to talk to.

This was the first time I got to meet Louise from Fifth Sparrow as well, and having been a reader of hers for such a long time, it was amazing to finally meet her in person.  She’s so funny and personable in person, and she let me steal one of her cupcakes to take home with me!  Extra amazingness points for Louise (and piggy points for me).

I had such a great time with Mina of Faboulista at the Obakki show (which was the first time I met her) that I could hardly wait to see her again.  She is honestly as adorable as you can get and has the most beautiful, eclectic style. 

The beautiful and talented Veronika of Girl and Closet looking lovely as ever!  I’m so happy to have gotten to know Veronika over our past three meetups – everytime I find out another cool fact about her that makes me admire her even more.  If you haven’t already checked out her photography website, head on over here

Just some weirdo who turned up out of the blue and decided to tag along with everyone…awkwaaaaard.

I hope you all had the loveliest of weekends!  Over the past week, I’ve been working out pretty intensely and really upped the ante over the weekend.  I’m currently aching all over and can’t raise my arms past shoulder-level.  This is a good lesson for all you other fitness fanatics out there: do not go on vacation and trick yourself into thinking you can have a guilt-free break from working out.  You’ll only find that once you’re back, you’ll go crazaaaay the way I did to overcompensate!

    So much fun!! I love this post, and especially all the beauties in it! It was so nice to actually meet you for real Alex, you're such a sweetie, and I cannot wait for the next meet up! Now, to find a killer hat….

    p.s hope you're feeling better after your masochistic workout, crazy girl!

    Your pictures turned out so much better than mine- kind of jealous, not going to lie, but I guess it's my own fault since I'm the one who couldn't seem to keep my eyes open when my camera was being used 🙂 Yesterday was such fun- I can't believe how little we all ate we were so busy talking, but I guess that is just an indicator of what a good time we were all having! (Speaking of awkward, since you mentionned it in your post, I totally have a necklace tan line today :P) So looking forward to the next get-together, particularly the hats. I'm always looking to add to my collection 😀
    PS: From one gym rat to another, the only cute for too much exercise is more exercise. Seriously. It totally works.

    Lovely post Alex, that was so much fun! I can't believe how quickly the time flew by because we were all chatting so much! But it is true, although I met all of you for the first time Sunday, it feels like we have all known each other forever…it was so nice to meet such an amazing group of ladies. Can't wait for the next one!

    What a gorgeous group of ladies! I'm happy you had a sunny day for your meet up! The Vancouver weather doesn't always agree!

    ohhhhhhhhh Alex, now my serious sads have turned to swells of loves over these magnificent shots of all you beautiful ladies!!!! but, who am i kidding, i am still heartbroken to have had to miss out on what looks like the greatest of times!

    wow, enough food for an army is what! baha, i loved seeing everyone and the colorful outfits. stylin' girls at the beach; one and all. bet you got the looks from all those passersby, they must have thought a fashion shoot for a top mag was happening : )

    i think Cee's got the blur b/c of her orb angel quality, that ethereal halo of hers seems to catch the light sometimes!!!

    thank you for the love (and in your last comment too!), you have no idea what i went through to try my darnedest to make it. blasted deadlines plus it turns out i've got an ear infection now too. can't hear a thing out of my left side, it's the side i put the phone to as well, complete poo if you ask me but ah well, onwards to this next weekend where i will be doing NOTHING, best believe.

    baby girl, take it ease on those work out regimes okay. you got the hottest bod on the block, no need to overdo. xo ♥

    Alexandra, it was SO fabulous to see you again!! Our blogger meet ups always seem to go so fast, and I always get super excited for the next one. You looked absolutely radiant that day. I loved your Maxi dress, fab belt, and your a blast to be around.

    Your pictures turned out great too. I didn't get nearly as many as I wanted, too much gabbing I guess! 😉 xx veronika
