meet our bluboho beauty: adrienne

adrienne_blog_bwwhat does being boho mean to you? I think of a few things; being free spirited, giving, open to all possibilities in life for oneself and others, a unique sense of style, and above all else an outlook on life that is accepting and loving of all things. favourite piece and why? This is a tough one – I love our pieces that have hand engraved notes. These special notes are for me and my eyes only and are daily affirmations that I hold close to my heart. what do you do when you’re not in the store? I love spending my time with my husband, Brandon, and our dog Oscar! We like to go on “day dates” around the city and exploring places to eat, drink and be entertained. We explore Indigo and browse travel books to pick out our top ten destinations, which always seem to be changing. I also play hockey once a week and took up snowboarding three years ago. Other than that I enjoy spending time with family and friends! who is your style muse? I don’t think I have one in particular, but I love exploring the world of fashion and looking for trends. There are a number of people that I look to for inspiration. I love following people and places like Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, DVF, Holt Renfrew and Miranda Kerr on instagram to see their daily inspirations. favourite song to dance too Beyonce – Love On Top! I have a huge girl crush on her! what are you reading on the beach right now? The Glass Castle. I really enjoy reading stories about people’s lives, their happiest moments, the struggles they go through and what they learn from them and how they grow as people celebrity crush? Jon Snow! what are you making for lunch these days? To help cool me off during the hot summer days, I’m making a ton of delicious smoothies. Brandon and I just bought the best blender in the world and we can’t stop using it! I’m running out of recipes, so send some over! [caption id="" align="alignright" width="300"]brandon_oscar Me, Brandon and Oscar (the model!)[/caption] what is your favourite destination? where do you eat, sleep and shop when you visit? My husband and I typically enjoy going to an all-inclusive every year. However, last year we got the chance to go to a taping of the Ellen Degeneres show in LA. I absolutely fell in love with LA. My fave place to sleep would be the Venice Beach Suites and Hotel right near the original Muscle Beach.  We missed out on the food trucks, but our favourite place to eat was The Firehouse. It’s got all the main breakfast dishes to take care of any taste bud. The shopping in Santa Monica, along the pier and the infamous, Grove was great with some fun shops. The Grove has a farmer’s market with fun little places to eat delicious treats and some great hand crafted coffees. what’s on your vision board? Pictures of my top 10 places to visit in Europe, my white Land Rover with black interior, an adorable Rottweiler puppy named Bosco, a beautiful home northeast of Toronto, only a 15 minute drive to the highway, but still tucked away in secret on 2 acres of land.  A picture of Joe Sakic with me edited beside him (because I will meet him one day), books that I’d like to read, a home next to the water in Malibu that Brandon and I travel to for part of the winter months.
