If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’m a homebody (sloth). Just one of the amazing things that has come along with blogging is the opportunity to go to some amazing events! And while my natural tendency is to politely decline the invitations, this year is all about stepping out of my comfort zone! Here is a sneak peek into some things I forced myself to do!

FUZE at the Vancouver Art Gallery– Even though people may assume I’m a social butterfly, I’m actually uncomfortable in some social events, especially when I know I am out of my element. Enter the world of modern and performance art… I’m not really a fan of modern art per se… art in general I guess! I kind of thought it was just going to be a big party at the art gallery!

There were some cool exhibitions and there were some strange ones.. They have a few of these a year, so if it sounds like your kind of thing, make sure to check it out!

Eco Fashion Week– Another event I attended was part of Eco Fashion week. They had a few different events over the weekend and I was lucky enough to attend the closing  one on closing night, at the Vancouver Museum.

Designer Evan Biddell took on Value Village’s 81 pounds challenge. The number 81 pounds is based on the volume of textiles and clothing consumers toss out annually which is just insane! I couldn’t believe the beautiful pieces he had made out of repurposed material! It looked like a real collection and every piece was made with such detail and care.  What a great way to raise awareness of our wasteful ways!

I was excited because it was my first fashion event, but I was a little nervous because I had no idea what I was doing! I was super happy there was complimentary wine and cheese, and I even ran into a few of my blogger girlfriends!

Although both events weren’t necessarily my thing, I’m proud of myself for getting uncomfortable and doing things I would never normally do! What’s that saying??? Life starts at the end of your comfort zone?? And yes I wore the same jumpsuit to both events… Whatever

  1. This looked like such a fun event! I missed the Seattle Eco Fashion Week and I was so bummed! Appreciate you sharing this – the Value Village challenge was amazing!

  2. Girl, I am the SAME way!! I am so bad about being around people. I’m always declining invites because it makes me so anxious, but I’ve decided that I need to step out this year and socialize if I want to get anywhere. Kudos to you for taking that step!

  3. Think of this as one of the fun things about blogging – going to events and meeting new people! I am proud of you for stepping out of your comfort zone, once again. You are such an inspiration!

  4. I think that’s a crucial step for happiness, I know that sounds odd, but in pushing ourselves into situations that are a little beyond what we’re used to, we often learn it wasn’t as scary as what we expected!

  5. Yay so proud of you for pushing your limits and still going to blogger events! I feel the same going to events some times, especially if I’m not extremely excited about the event itself, but I always have fun once I get there and find blogger pals! Looking fabulous as per usual!

  6. Yay you!! Well done for stepping out of your comfort zone, sweetie! It’s not easy, especially, like you said, when the event is not really your cup of tea. I am so glad you had a great time though 🙂 And you look smashing gorgeous in that jumpsuit!!! <3 <3 <3

  7. Looks like you got out to some fun events! Eco Fashion Week looks like it was a good time! I have to force myself out sometimes too…I get into moods where I’m a homebody for weeks at a time and getting dressed and putting makeup on, let alone actually GOING OUT, sounds like such a chore! But I’m usually happy about it afterwards 😉
