    I really like your bucket list, especially “See the northern lights” – although the problem with that one is that they’re so lovely you’ll want to see them again and again! I’d love to do the dance class one but I’m hopeless at dancing (I’ve been to plenty, all different styles, and am awful at almost all of them! XD)

    Also good luck finding a lovely white lace dress – I have one and it’s one of my favourite dresses that I own, lace is just so lovely and a lace dress is one of the most lovely things that it can be used for. =)

      Thanks so much! Ahh I bet! They seem really lovely, but I’m sure they would be much more amazing in person – I so need to travel more! You’re hopeless? I get soo embarassed when I dance, I feel awkward..I’m hoping to get over that one, haha. I’m going to try at least!

      I know eh? It’s so hard finding one, it’s almost like shopping for a wedding gown! I’m hoping I’ll find my lace dress and it’ll be the “one” Lace is gorgeous!!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      AHHH yay!! definitely pick up a bunch so when we get together we can do some DIY galore!! (: (I love buying them for the buttons, haha) I so want to go thrifting now.

    Hey Natalie, if you need any help with Spanish learning you can count on me ;-)

    • November 6, 2011 2:08 PM

      Ahh, that’ll be awesome!! I understand it more than I can speak it, so I’d love to learn. Are you spanish?

      • November 10, 2011 6:38 PM

    Hi Natalie :) I am a Canadian blogger and you can check out my blog anytime:
    I just posted about my vacation to Thunder Bay and Vancouver.

    Here are a few of my favourite Canadian bloggers:

    I’ve put you into my google reader feed so I can follow your blog. Keep up the good writing and beautiful photography.

      Hi Robin! We’re fellow Ontarians! Thanks for letting me know about your blog – loved the vacation photos, so neat!! I’ve always wanted to go to Vancouver. I’ll add ya to my Canadian Blogs List :D

      Ohh, yay! I’ll have to take a look and add them as well! Thanks again!

      And thanks so much (it really means a lot!) Do you have bloglovin’? I have google reader, but I don’t really use it often.

    Hi Natalie: I too am a Canadian blogger (well I am a sorta – cross boarder blogger too). You can find me at: and

    If you are interested in getting exposure to more bloggers, you may want to think about attending social media/blogging conferences. I made that my biz goal this year and it has been great meeting others. You may have already done this but I thought I would add my two cents.

    Look into
    * Blogher12 in NYC in August 2012 (there were 3,500 attendees at Blogher11 this year)
    * Blissdom Canada & US (that is usually in Canada in October and is in Nashville this coming Feb. 2012)
    * She’s Connected is an invite only conference but if you get on their radar, you may be asked to attend. They are doing something that is not invite-only in April so keep that on your radar too.

    Hope this helps a bit. I know attending these conferences have helped me a great deal.

    Here’s to keeping connected and supporting other Canadian bloggers!

    PS: I love your blog posts on the 12 Days of Bootmas…That is how I got to your site! Am thinking of getting a pair for my 15 year old daughter so your post is very timely!

    You’ve never seen the northern lights?! Oh man… You’re missing out. I used to watch them while falling asleep at my old house!

    • January 24, 2015 8:14 PM
