SMALL BUSINESS FEATURES ARE BACK! I am so excited to be resuming small business features, and have the opportunity to showcase such wonderful local talent! This month is featuring the beautiful Dani from @oladubois, who has perfected her craft. Read on to find out more! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 1)What is the story behind your business? I make beautiful, one-of-a-kind dresses from vintage, upcyled and other earth-friendly textiles. I’ve worked in the fashion industry most of my life in buying, selling & manufacturing and the more I learned about the harmful methods used to make much of the worlds clothing, the more I felt the need to be part of a positive change. My line is not only locally and ethically made but it uses reclaimed fabrics which are actually 100% sustainable. Check out a film called The True Cost (Netflix) if you want to learn more about the garment industry, it will blow your mind. �2) How long have you had this business? I started Ola Dubois as a side project within my women’s clothing boutique in 2012. I sold my shop in 2016 to pursue my sustainable fashion dream full time! 3) Tell us what products and services you offer! My main focus is making dresses. It’s what I wear every day myself, and what I know and love. Experience has shown me that women want to be comfortable, but still look their best and not have to think about what they are wearing once it’s on - life is busy! While I love making occasion pieces & and items with a touch of drama, my main focus is making beautiful & unique dresses you can wear to feel special in your day to day life. ��4) Where can we find your products!? The best way to browse is at my home studio here in Victoria! I book one-on-one visits, or you can organize small groups of up to 4 or 5 people to come together. It’s super laid back and lots of fun, I love it. Or you can shop online anytime at www.oladubois.ca – (I am always available for questions about fits, fabrics etc.) My dresses can also be found in Victoria at Paradise Boutique, in Courtenay at Article, in Campbell River at French Creek Collective and in Nelson at Zinnia Textiles! at Victoria, British Columbia

#notetoself once upon a time the sky was the limit but now the only thing stopping you, is YOU! get out of your own way. do things that are difficult, that are challenging..that make you question everything you’ve ever believed. question your beliefs, your narrative, your environment, your thoughts...EVERYTHING! the only limits in life, are the ones we place on ourselves 💭 what have you been holding yourself back from? what old ways have been limiting a new way of living? what limits do you allow others to place on you? at Vancouver, British Columbia

Stumbled across a few black bears last Saturday while walking a seismic line. Unfortunately we spotted each other at the same time while I was between momma and one of her cubs.

We just spent the weekend out stalking wild grizzlies in the Great Bear Rainforest for my eldest sons 5th birthday. Amazing to see these guys swimming to catch and eat salmon. Once you see them up close you start to think that an 800mm lens might be a better alternative to halving the distance between you and your 400mm lens ! Shot late in the day at ISO 2500, 1/160 and f/5.6 with the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM at 400mm on a Canon 6D II. Swipe over to see a cropped zoom into his face.

Centrefold What do I love more than waterfall Wednesday? #larchmadness! The weather has been awful this fall and it feels like winter is settling in. Despite raining and snowing for most of the day, the clouds broke up just long enough for me to grab this epic pano! at Yoho National Park

Have you ever gotten seasonal depression... clinically termed now as Seasonal Affective Disorder ( SAD )???⠀ ⠀ In general, it occurs at the same time of year, when there is a change in temperature and daily weather. Usually occurring at the start of winter⠀ ⠀ The desire to sleep more, loss of energy and just outright feeling of melancholy. ⠀ ⠀ I remember getting this for 3 years in a row when I was younger and living on my own. It happened around October when fall had fully set in and the constant rain was upon us and usually would last for a good two weeks⠀ ⠀ How I stopped getting it was....⠀ ⠀ 1) Started eating cleaner foods that my body could digest better and had less unhealthy fats⠀ ⠀ 2) Woke up at the same time each day (430am for me) this gave me the purpose to leave my bed and start my day⠀ ⠀ 3) Made sure I got 60minutes of exercise in 6/7 days in the week⠀ ⠀ 4) Found a drive in my life that gave me a purpose to strive towards. I remember I used to float around day to day, no real drive and that was when the feeling of depression was the worst ⠀ ⠀ Wich one of these do you think will help you most with your Seasonal Affective Disorder⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Wearing⠀ @stutterheim 👕⠀ @34heritage 👖⠀ @converse 👟⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #pnw #explorebc #yvr #vancity #mygastown #yvrblogger #fallfashion #rainydays #menslook at Vancouver, British Columbia

I camped out here a few weeks back, I had no idea the amount of hiking trails and waterfalls were in the area, just so many hidden gems in the area. It was also really nice to wake up to the sound and sight of Takkakaw Falls (in background). . I hear that now this whole area is covered in snow and the roads will be closing very soon, which is sad...buttt I can't wait to go back next year. . Hope everyone has an amazing week 👊 Wearing: @tikwatchesco #makeyourmark at Yoho National Park

In May 2004, Treetops Adventures was opened, consisting of seven footbridges suspended between old-growth Douglas Fir trees on the west side of the canyon, forming a walkway up to 30 metres (98 ft) above the forest floor. #treetops #throwbackmonday #capilanosuspensionbridge #vancouver #beautifulplaces #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #explorebc #travelbc #capilano #Dailypic #capilanobridgepark #paradisecanada #explorebc #YVR #imagesofcanada #bcisbeautiful #vancouverisawesome #rawcanada #photooftheday #explorecanada #splendidcanada #instagood #Lumix #livelovecanada #canadasworld #insanecanada #Canada 🇨🇦 at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

Everyone you meet always asks if you have a career, are married, or own a house as if life was some kind of grocery list. But no one asks if you are happy. - Heath Ledger at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
