This week's Blog of the Week is Nicole, from her blog Gypsy in Jasper! First of all, Nicole lives in one of the. most. beautiful. places. I've EVER been! That's initially what drew me to her blog. Now I love to read all of her posts and pretend I'm in that gorgeous town too. I know you'll love her. So read, enjoy, then go say hi!
You know that magical moment when someone new comments on your blog and says something totally awesome, so you absolutely have to respond, like, right that moment!? I had one of those moments with Gentri and, now, she's my favourite. Like for reals, this girls is the bombdiggity. No doubt. (Did you get that reference? I like the way you work it, no diggity. I got to bag it up, bag it up. Oh the 90s, you rocked my world with some super awful, yet so awesome to sing to, music. And then there were the clothes. Oh! The clothes.)
|That's right, folks. You're looking at me all done up in my best Blossom-inspired outfit, and my boyfriend Ian as Dylan from 90210. Or at least that's what I called him all night. I'm not sure if he totally appreciated that or not.|
Anyway, I've gotten myself off track, as I so often do. You see, right now I'm supposed to be introducing myself to all of you lovely Gentri Lee readers. (Have I mentioned she's the best!?)
So, what up ladies? I'm Nicole, the always ridiculous and often silly blogger behind Gypsy in Jasper. I'm a small town reporter by day and a blogger, wannabe fashionista, fisherwoman by night. My goal in life is to report from every province and territory in Canada. So far, I've reached four provinces and two territories, which means I have seven more to hit. Big goal for a little lady, but I'll make it happen if it's the last thing I do. I swear it on the above bugle.
Currently, I'm living amongst the Rocky Mountains in a teeny-tiny town in a national park. I can't lie, it's pretty glorious... although the rules in a park are a bit extreme. I mean, we can't even eat the elk that kick us out of our fishing spot or wander into our yard. I tell ya, life is hard!
I've been living in this postcard of a town with my boyfriend for about nine months now and we're finally starting to settle in. He's working in IT for a chain of hotels and I'm writing for the local paper. When we're not at work, you might find us taking wacky photos, fishing, cooking delicious boot soup, drinking mojitos on the deck or on the road heading somewhere fun, while listening to Richard Cheese.
But that's enough about real life, let's talk about Gypsy in Jasper, shall we? GinJ is a place where I share my outfits, my wonky opinions and thoughts, my DIY projects, exciting news about my garden (my first ever!) and stories about my many adventures.
|This is my outfit for What to Wear to a barbecue. Notice my fantastic new-to-me thrifted purse. That was $4 well spent!|
Every two weeks on the ol' blog, my friend Jill and I have a feature called What to Wear, where we put together outfits for specific occasions. Last time it was what to wear to a barbecue. And, this Thursday, it's what to wear for the always stressful first meeting of the parents.
My other regular features are Thankful Tuesdays and Things I don't understand. "Things I don't understand" is definitely my absolute favourite to write each week. You see, there are just so many things that strike me as absolutely unfathomable in life, so a few weeks back, I just started documenting them for the whole internet to see. And every week when I publish those posts, I get awesome responses from people, some who agree with me wholeheartedly and others who think I'm a bit of a brat. That's the fun of it, though. I don't want everyone to agree with me. That would just be way too boring for my liking.
Well folks, I think I better quit while I'm ahead. I would hate to be responsible for boring all of Gentri Lee's lovely readers. But before I go, I have to send out a huge thank you to Gentri for choosing Gypsy in Jasper as her blog of the week. And thanks to all of you for taking the time to read this gigantic blog post. I hope you'll all come and visit me over in my neck of the woods sometime.
She is so great and I love all of her different features! So hop on over to her blog, I know you'll all love her too!
