Welcome!

First and foremost, I want to thank you for stopping by and sharing this moment of your life with me. I will tell you that when I first started this blog I had lots of troubles and it has now turned into a beautiful mess. Just like turkey stuffing. Looks like … but tastes like heaven. While you snoop through my blog you will be indulged by my travel stories, my views on this world, as well educated through my PR knowledge. I’m hungry. Enjoy my turkey stuffing!

Fall Skincare Routine with Scentuals

Raise your hand if your skin is flakey and dry right now. My skin care routine changes every season depending on the weather and how my skin is reacting. I have sensitive and combination skin but I constantly find myself leaning more on the dry side this fall.

Here are 3 of my favourite things to do during this Fall season to hydrate and pamper my skin.

  1. Bath
  2. Facial
  3. Meditation

To be honest you could do all three of these things at the same time lol. Before I get into the details I just want to mention that I love anything and everything lavender scented!

First steps to branding.

Your brand is the most critical thing in your business. It’s not just about slapping on a name and a logo. Branding your business correctly will help you attract new customers, retain your customers and increase your profits. Your brand speaks volumes to what your values are and your vibe.

A long time ago when I didn’t even consider myself a brand… I came up with a name that at the time seemed cool as my social media name. That is how ‘Ndrealynn‘ was born. I knew how to pronounce it, no one had that username for anything on social media… it was perfect. Except it didn’t mean anything, it didn’t leave an impression on others, and some people couldn’t even pronounce it properly. A question I kept asking myself for the past year was, “It’s been so many years now, is it too late to create a new name?”, and the answer is NO! It’s never too late, especially if your values and direction for your brand have changed.

I have officially decided to rebrand my blog and personal brand as Vancouver PR Girl. I think it comes as no surprise since it’s a name that I’ve loved since I started PR and it’s a name I resonate with. But enough about me let’s get to the good stuff!

What is a  brand?

I like to tell my clients that a brand is any touch-points or visuals their company has, that the customer will/could interact with.

Osoyoos vs. Penticton

Cruising over to the Okanagan is always a good idea when it comes to small getaways. Now the only question you have to ask yourself is, “Should I go to Penticton or Osoyoos? Which one is better?”. You’ve probably heard so many times from each of your friends on which place is better and why. It’s probably goes something like this: “In Penticton, you haveee to go on the channel with a beer in your hand!” and “Oh, you’re going to Osoyoos? OMG you have to go to Burrowing Owl for dinner!”. In this blog, I’m going to tell you which destination I think is better and why.

Stuck in Kaohsiung?

2/3 Travel blog is upppp! I hope you all enjoyed my last blog post about my trip to Korea. If you’re interested in visiting Taiwan… specifically Kaohsiung then read on.

Kaohsiung – You might be asking me why the heck I went to Kaohsiung and not Taipei. I ask myself that too but the only reason was because our YVR Deal wouldn’t let us break the trip. However, it wasn’t all that bad to be honest because we got to visit Kenting!

서울 Korean BBQ Heaven

Here is the first of three travel blogs I will be posting. I just thought it would be too much information to pack into one single blog, because in reality all three destinations that I visited are so different and they each deserve their own! To begin Ben booked this trip for us back in Summer 2017 and was my birthday gift from him. Here we go…

Korea – Everything you thought Korea would be… is exactly what you thought it was going to be haha. Aka .. Soju, Korean BBQ, Rice Cakes, Fried Chicken, and a shit ton of face masks.

Organize your life.

No matter if you’re a part-time freelancer or a full-time one you need tools and apps that are going to help you stay organized. I’m the type of person that can remember a million things off the top of my head but these apps definitely help. I have shared my top favourite time tracking, task management, invoicing, accounting, and contract apps below and why I love them! Oh yeah I forgot to mention they’re all FREE!

Networking can be fun!

Networking has always been hard for me (surprisingly). But, it’s how I build connections and found clients. It’s a tool that will always come in handy!

These questions always pop into my mind:
“oh… should I introduce myself now?”
“Shit… I only brought 4 business cards and one went into the lucky draw!”
“Ugh.. how do I leave this convo without making it awkward.”

Vancouver eats.

I eat a lot. Like a lot. If you’ve ever watched my snap chat or instagram stories it will ALWAYS consist of some sort of food. Whether my bf cooked it or I’m out eating my face off. I live for the next meal haha. If you’re wondering what I’ve had for the past few months you can check my instagram highlighted ‘SNACKS’ story!

 

I thought I would put together a list of restaurants and things I like from each restaurant for you guys. I travel so much and eat so much so I want to start a City + Food series. It won’t be a billion blog posts but something simple enough that if you’re heading to

eg. Hong Kong or Barcelona you can click on my personal list.

 

Everything that I have listed below are just my opinions and a lot of places I’ve eaten at might not be on the list cuz I didn’t want to list out every damn restaurant in Vancouver LOL. If you want to know about a particular restaurant in Vancouver feel free to message me and I’ll let you know whatsup!

Soy Candles FTW

Peach Bellini.
Black tie.
Japanese Cherry Blossom.
Sweet pea.
Vanilla Bean Noel.

What does all that shit have in common? No, not that they’re all from Bath and Body Works! They are all made with paraffin wax.

Gurl before I understood how bad cheap paraffin wax candles are for you… I was always stocking up at Bath & Body Works for their seasonal scents. If you know me now I am a huge soy candle lover after I discovered how much better they are and not to mention how much longer they burn!
