I'm in Amsterdam right now. This is truly an amazing and unique city. One of the reasons we came here was to see Beyoncé. Not having tickets to any of her two shows was a minor problem though. We thought we would head to the venue and try the whole scalper thing (the tickets have been sold out for months). I logged on to Ticketmaster right before we left to the Ziggo Dome and guess what? We got floor tickets for face value! This was not the only great thing that happened to me yesterday. I also received an e-mail saying that I've been nominated for a Yeggie! What's a Yeggie? Well you can find out about it here. You can also see the other nominees who appear to be much more talented at this than I am :)

  2. Thanks! I went to last year's event and it was a great time!

  3. Congratulations! What I like about the Yeggies is that it's helping me discover even more "local" talent! Love the pics of Amsterdam! And love browsing your archives! I am curious if your style and Parisian style overlap - are you fairly representative of the average Parisian woman? How are you influenced by the style there compared to Alberta?! What a wonderful experience!

  4. Thank you! I agree with you about discovering local talent. I have been following a couple of the other blog nominees for quite a while now! Unfortunately I can't attend the awards show this year but highly recommend that you do. I had a great time last year!!

    I wouldn't say that I am representative of the average Parisian women but my outfits have definitely been influenced by them. Parisian women have this effortlessly chic look to them. They can go out in a pair of skinny jeans and a tee and still manage to look extremely stylish. I'm not sure if I can pull that off. Back in Alberta I would dress in bright colours and I love patterns, but since moving here have been drawn to more simple and classic pieces in blacks and neutrals. I am realizing that sometimes less is more and you don't have to get too funky with your outfits to look stylish.
