I don't think I've ever done a 'HELLO, my name is' post! It's long overdue! So, hi, I'm Erin. I'm 36 years old (*holds for WOW, you don't look 36... anyone?!) and I live in Vancouver, like riiiight downtown, traffic, noise, and chaos included, with my husband Roberto. We have been married for 3 years, but have known each other for 13 years, and were best friends for 7 years before we started dating. Awkward! We have a sweet Morkie named Ava and I was soooo not a dog person before she came along. We are trying to have a baby, and have been for almost two years... I decided to help take the fear out of it for anyone who may be struggling, and decided to share the process of what this looks like in my stories (and there haven't been any tears yet!). I've always wanted to be a mom, but I put my career first until now, and I'm super nervous about how a baby and owning a business will work... I have faith it will. Our favourite place to visit is Portugal - Roberto's family has a home in the Algarve so it's officially our second home and I dream of spending more time there. Speed round! My idea of a good time is pizza, couch, and Real Housewives. I'm allergic to scallops. I would rather give a gift than receive one. My dream is to own a horse. Heck, since we're wishing, just give me Ina Garten's life. I have a phobia of driving over large bridges and through tunnels, but only when I'm the one behind the wheel. Cheese is my favourite food, and I fight the urge every day! Thank you for being here and it's so good to meet you 💗

This Pumpkin Spice Bundt with Cream Cheese Glaze was a hit at family Thanksgiving and rounded out the double pie sitch from @thepiehole pretty nicely 💁🏽 Shared the recipe in my story 🍂

A grateful heart turns what you have into enough - I've always loved this saying but it wasn't until this year that I felt it. Trust me, you'll never be fulfilled if you continually look at what you don't have, or compare your life to someone else's (Instagram is GREAT for that, innit?!). My advice (since you didn't ask), is to stay in your lane, and look ahead instead of in the side or rear view mirrors. Life feels better when you stick to living it that way! Also, this guy is what I'm most thankful for this year. He's my absolute ROCK. This may be our last Thanksgiving as just a twosome, who knows. Throwback to when we had less grey hairs, and I still baked my own pumpkin pies! Happy Thanksgiving!!! 🍂

The leftovers from my Sparkle Studio Photography 101 class this weekend are brightening my day a little bit 💗 What a great group of women in one room. So looking forward to the next one, and hoping to book another for November if you're interested 👌🏼

It's the coziest rainy Friday AND National Coffee Day? Gosh I love these Instagram holidays! ☕️ #nationalcoffeeday

Last week, I worked with @shangrila_van to create and shoot a styled set up for all of their holiday promotion and had the BEST time. It's a more contemporary holiday feel, and I love the muted palette. It's always a dance (and it takes WAYYY more time than you'd believe) to pull together a look you have in your mind - sometimes you're not sure how it will turn out! I love that I could create this to shoot, and then actually host some of my fave ladies for a @marketjg_van meal! 💗Flowers @celsiafloral, menus and placecards @hellomaurelle, rentals @uprightdecor

Pumpkin EVERYTHING! 🎃You guys know I’m trying to cut dairy, so when @e.d.smithfoods asked me to team up with them to celebrate their 135th anniversary, I knew I had to combine some nostalgic memories of baking with my Gram and Mom, but with a dairy-free twist!!! It was my first time making Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake, and when I took these mini treats to a dinner party, my friends LOVED it… so did I! Link in profile for the how to and the recipe 👏🏻 #EDS135 #ad

Now that it's OFFICIALLY fall, I've got plans for my new @lecreusetcanada (that I bought 6 months ago and haven't used once, even though I told my hubs it was an "essential"). Send recipes! 🍲🍂

Yesterday's set up at my first @sparklemedia Photography 101 Workshop! Huge thanks to @oliveandrubycafe for the bites and juice, @kpurenaturals for my fave deo to share, @vancouvercandleco for my fave Rosedale candle for everyone, @celsiafloral for the gorgeous blooms (left them for you as a thank you, @leahalx_jewelry!) and @kardzkouture for the pretty personalized cards. I've always said that content photography is the future of marketing even wayyy back in 2013 when I founded my business. It's how you build a brand!!! I wanted to start these workshops to connect with you IRL, and as a way to help empower women to push their goals to the next level in business or as a hobby! I think I'm accomplishing that!!! Excited for the next one at @talkshopmedia on September 30th and since the Oct one sold out, I'll add another Nov date soon 💗 #sparklestudio

I've never met a white pumpkin I didn't like! Combine 'em with that late afternoon fall light... it's like a little bit of magic. I haven't been Instagramming much because I've been up there in stories sharing my real life!!! It's pretty much my new hobby which is both sad and exhilarating ✨✨✨

Popped out in my jammies to grab my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season - my order? Grande, 1/2 sweet, soy, caramel drizzle PSL. I worked at Starbucks for 3 years back in 2004 so I can rattle off a modified beverage like nobody's business... jealous??? It's how I met my hubs by the way, so don't knock it 😍
