Fresh Eyes with IRIS

NOTHING LIKE NEW EYEWEAR

Seeing is great, isn’t it? Haha. No, but really, there isn’t anything quite like getting a fresh prescription. It’s straight up like seeing the world through new eyes. Everything looks 100x more beautiful…except my kitchen floor. (When I’m too lazy to clean, I take my glasses/contacts out and my house looks pristine. It works, try it).

I headed over to IRIS, to one of their newest locations in Langley, and met up with Dr. Denny Birring. I’ve had my eyes checked a million times before, but Dr. Birring somehow left me with new information about my vision/glasses/contacts that I didn’t know prior to our appointment. (Like, apparently my current contacts are biweeklies…and I thought they were monthlies. Woops). He sold me on daily contacts and introduced me to the reputable brand Maui Jims, which are sunglasses that have fully loaded lenses. Continue Reading

#RethinkReuse with Value Village

IMG_3502xvsm

I’ve always been a fan of pre-loved clothing (that’s where this whole ‘blog’ of mine started). I’m drawn to how every piece has lived a life before living in my closet, how being fashion-forward doesn’t have to be expensive, how buying second-hand has a positive impact on the environment,…the list goes on. Continue Reading

My Constants with Secret Location

You know those days…where nothing looks good? It’s not quite fitting how it’s supposed to? The moleholes of clothes all over the floor just aren’t cutting it? Those days are waaay too common lately, mainly due to a little girl growing inside of me. (2 months to go!) Continue Reading

'Style Jaunt' Glasgow Sneak Peek from Alanna Durkovich on Vimeo.

‘Style Jaunt’ in Glasgow–Sneak Peek!

We filmed ‘Style Jaunt‘ in Glasgow last September, and the mini trailer is finally out! I wrote about it briefly + included some photos from the trip in a previous blog post (CLICK HERE)! It’s a series by Air Transat + FLARE Magazine, and it’s all about finding those amazing addresses (part travel guide, part shopping guide) in a city through the eyes of Canadian fashionistas.

Stay tuned for the next instalment of episodes! They should be published next week. But for now…here’s the trailer! xo

Easy Breezy

It feels like Summer at home, which means I can finally ditch the chunky layers that make me look like a pregnant sausage, and switch it up for easy breezy dresses. Love this Lovers + Friends piece. I’ve worn it as a dress and as a top with a pair of jeans. Super versatile…AND I can still wear it post-pregnancy! Continue Reading

LA

We headed down to attend The Grammy’s with L’Oreal Paris Canada—it was unreal! Other than attending the sickest concert of all time, Mat and I had some free time to explore. It was my first time in LA, (…my trip to Disneyland in Grade 2 doesn’t count) so I was so EXCITED. Continue Reading

Introducing ‘Style Jaunt’

Last autumn, I had the opportunity to fly down to Madrid with Air Transat and FLARE Magazine to shoot the web series, ‘Style Jaunt’. The series is all about discovering those special addresses within a city–like unique restaurants, notable shopping finds, and other interesting attractions. 

There are 3 episodes in every ‘Style Jaunt’ segment. They’ve already explored Lisbon and the Puerto Vallarta. This tme ’round, Tamy Emma Pepin and I set off on our adventure to hunt down those must-see spots in Madrid!

The first episode highlighting Madrid will be released March 9! So in the meantime, take a look at the mini 15 second teaser above!
