#WCW Breanna Fitzpatrick + Lisa Nicholson

It’s #WCW!! And I’m very excited to introduce you to Breanna Fitzpatrick. Bre is a leader and creator in the nonprofit community. She is constantly pushing for the small initiatives to grow with her involvement. She is a very busy woman who outside of her full-time schedule at Red Deer College has the alumni development coordinator, volunteers on numerous boards and committees. Her active life doesn’t stop her from taking on new projects, or sway her from supporting local businesses. You will find her at the local coffee shop mentoring others or paying it forward by buying strangers coffee. She believes women should help one another out and not be competitive with each other she is here to make red deer a better place by creating a movement in the nonprofit community.

AND Lisa Nicholson. Lisa founded Hope4MVCKids Society in 2013, out of a need for children with medical needs support, financially and emotionally. Her own children, biological and adopted, have special medical needs that were not easily met. She knew things had to change. The ‘Pay It Forward’ attitude that she possesses spread quickly and soon and an entire Society was created. She stepped up to challenges and overcame unfair regulations and laws. Lisa has become highly involved in the Alberta Provincial Parent Advisory Committee to the Alberta Ministry of Health and continues to give to the community by being an advocate for those without a voice. Her empathy and understanding is without comparison. Accomplishments aside, her biggest success is enriching the lives of everyone around her.

Here’s to trying new things!

I’m going to do something that I’ve wanted to do for AGES friends. I’m going to make some of my favourite photos available as Fine Art Prints (and you didn’t hear it from me, but maybe iphone cases and tapestries too!) so that all of you (my favourites) can enjoy them as well!! Seriously, who doesn’t want a little piece of Hawaii or California Desert to stare at in the dead of winter?! I am feeling so, so excited about this but, if I’m totally honest, I still have a lot of details to work out lol. So stay tuned!!

Poppy Barley Fall Launch

When Jane from Poppy Barley emailed me about attending their Fall Launch event, I thought for sure she had made a mistake.  I’m a full-time mom/photographer who lives in the middle of nowhere, I don’t get invited to fashion launches!  Soooo naturally, I quickly wrote back so that she couldn’t change her mind lol!!  But in all seriousness, I cannot tell you how happy I was to celebrate Poppy Barley’s new store and their 2018 fall line-up.  You see, Poppy Barley was my VERY FIRST responsible shoe purchase and it was scary because, as we all know by now, responsible fashion costs more.  And spending money stresses me out friends.  I usually have to mull over purchases for weeks to months, and in this case YEARS.  Ya, that’s right, it took me 2 whole years to finally purchase my ankle boots, and I have zero regrets.  In fact, I went back the next year for a pair of mules!!  To put it simply, I wear them All. The. Time.  They are comfortable and seriously level-up my outfits!

I really want to to say a huge thank to the Poppy Barley ladies for having me, and for putting on such a intimate event.  I had so much fun hanging out with some of Edmonton’s best humans!  And you guys I brought home a pair of the leopard print flats (which was a prettty bold move for me)!!  Eeee, I love them so much and cannot believe how many garments I can pair them with.  I had to turn down the most comfortable pair of oxfords I’ve ever had my foot in, but I just love how this pair of D’orsay flats completely changes the look of my outfits.  I swear, it’s the shoe I didn’t know I needed!

If you haven’t already, I can’t encourage you enough to check out this women-run Edmonton-based company, they are a dream.  If you have any questions about my experiences with them and their shoes ask away below!  I genuinely love chatting slow-fashion with y’all!

Warmly,

Karmen

 

PS.  If you could have any pair of shoes from the Poppy Barley fall line, what would you get?!?
