The Weekend Edit Vol. 69

26.6.16



Happy Sunday! Notice anything different around these parts? I re-branded my blog! Welcome to Window Seat Style!

To be quite honest, I've been in a bit of a blogging slump for the last couple of months. Work was insanely busy (but good busy), my dad has major surgery, and life just kind of got in the way. By the time the weekends rolled around, I couldn't even be bothered with editing some photos. But you know what? I really missed blogging. I've kept up with Instagram pretty well, but I missed the creative process of creating content for this space. I thought about it a lot, and after 2 years of blogging, I think I've really focused in on what I want to share on this slice of the internet, which are my greatest passions: Travel, fashion , and photography!

So while re-branding was scary, and the internet is chock full of the "Go ahead!" and "DON'T DO IT!" camps, my following is very small, it didn't seem that difficult to transfer over to a new domain name, and I wanted to take this space in a direction that was more...me! Everything seems to be working correctly for the moment, although I still haven't quite gotten my previous domain name to forward to the new one...does anyone know how to do that? If so, please email me :P

So thank you to this wonderful community for sticking with me! I'm not sure all of you realize how important this creative space is for me. I don't blog full time, and don't intend to, but rather I work full time with patients who have ALS. I absolutely love my job, but it can be very emotionally draining, and I am so grateful to have a space to escape to and be creative in.

So with that, I leave you with some links to check out! But get out there and enjoy the wonderful summer weather!

Both the fashion and photography worlds lost a legend yesterday as Bill Cunningham passed away.

I think I'm going to have to add all of these magical places to my travel bucket list.

The perfect iced vanilla coffee recipe. Looks soooo good!

A fantastic editorial piece on the war on doctors in Syria. Both awful and fascinating at the same time.

Happy Weekend!

  6. Nice blog! Not very much into Fashion but keen on anything Canadian. By the way your Travel section is leading to a 404 page error, you may need to update your page link.

    Enjoy your blogging! Will hopefully catch a few of your travel related posts later when you have that fixed.

    Miss the great poutine in Eastern Canada, so much so, I made so to find the poutine we have in Vancouver http://bit.ly/VancouverPoutine haha.

    Best Regards,

    Benjamin

  10. I absolutely love the rebrand! And I agree, the name suits you very well. Rebranding is super scary. I went through it three times before settling on my blog name now! But luckily (?) I also don't have a large following, so it wasn't too terrifying. Anyway, I love it!
