Annual Sugoi Warehouse Sale

It’s that time of year again.  Time to get your wet weather gear out.  Dig out your gloves, toques, warm jackets and prepare to face the elements.  This is precisely what I didn’t do the other morning when I set out for a 6am run and promptly returned home shivering to add more layers because I was dressed like it was still September.

It’s also the time of year where deals fall into your basket at the Annual Sugoi Warehouse Sale on November 14 to 16.

Sugoi sale 2014

The Sugoi Warehouse Sale provides amazing savings on any of their over stocked inventory at up to 70% off including their Bike, Run and Triathlon apparel!  Some of my favourite pieces have come from this sale including the three for $10 arm warmer sets last year and a RS Jacket for $10 two years ago.

Let’s be honest it doesn’t matter how many Downy Unscentables we add to our laundry our workout stuff ends up smelling like a donkey over time.  So, any time I can get a deal for workout gear I’m all over it.  Bonus for 2014, Sugoi is also featuring Sombrio at the sale – a great, bike lifestyle brand.

Sadly, the sale is only available in person and not on-line.  Don’t forget to bring a donation to the Food Bank as your entry fee!

When – Friday 12-8pm, Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 11am – 3pm
Where – 4084 McConnell Court, Burnaby 


Wendy’s Look Book

Long before I started this blog, I was an avid follower of a number of Lifestyle and Fashion Blogs on-line.  Now that I am blogging myself, I am looking to these bloggers for inspiration   One of my all time favourites is Wendy’s Lookbook.  Wendy Nguyen started on Youtube, branched into blogging from there, quit her business banking job and has since become on of the most sought after fashion bloggers.  Wendy has 334,000 Facebook likes, 582,000 Youtube followers and 45,000 Twitter followers to give you an idea of her popularity.  Wendy has turned her passion into a career!

I stumbled across Wendy’s Lookbook when trying to find a new way to tie my scarf.  Wendy’s 25 Ways To Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes went viral and garnered over 25 million views on Youtube.  Even more fascinating than the video, is the backgrounder on her blog which details all of the work that went into making the video – three days of storyboarding, 8 hours of filming and many hours of editing.

Wendy’s Lookbook features beautifully shot pictures and videos, which are often practical and easy to replicate looks, links as to where to buy each item and quite a few advertisers.  There is a lot that I can learn from Wendy as I head down this blogging path!

Forbes recently covered Wendy during New York Fashion week in their article Going Viral: How Wendy Nguyen Of Wendy’s Lookbook Got 25 Million View On One Youtube Video.  They caught up with Wendy at New York Fashion Week to learn more about her blog.  You know when a business publication wants to cover you that your blog has gone big time!

So, for my first video blog I thought take some inspiration from Wendy’s viral video and show you 5 Ways To Wear A Scarf in 1 Minute.  Enjoy!
