The Urban Umbrella – a Vancouver Style and Beauty Blog

Back in 2012, I began The Urban Umbrella. At the time, I was working a job that offered no creativity or excitement, I had no real set goals or plans on the horizon, and I felt completely directionless. It was truly a low point in my life. But during this time, I began reading blogs and began to feel inspired to start my own.

After months (and months and months) of debating whether or not launch my own blog, I finally decided to take the leap. Back then, I had no idea what The Urban Umbrella was going to be about, in-fact that’s part of the reason I chose the name The Urban Umbrella – I had figured it would be about an umbrella of topics. But, not long after launch date, I began to realize what exactly I wanted to focus on. The Urban Umbrella is a Vancouver based Style &Beauty blog.

When I am not blogging, I am either working as an Social Media Strategist, or freelance writer.  I love to explore local cafes, shops, and restaurants – I feel like I am constantly on the hunt to find new favourites in town.
