Happy Canada Day everyone! The huge celebrations in Ottawa are bathed in sunshine and of course have royalty in attendance. I LOVE that Kate wore a maple leaf hat - not too many women can pull off a 'theme' hat with such style. To celebrate Canada Day we're giving everyone 10% off everything at Butterfly Collection this weekend. Just use code CANADA11 at checkout.
Here in Vancouver things are a little less sunny but that's not going to deter us heading down to the beach with some friends later today for a BBQ and drinks. My lovely friend Catherine sent us a chocolate survival package that has been getting us through the cold weather. I want to kiss the person who invented Galaxy chocolate!
I came across an interesting little article this morning whilst drinking my tea. Using high resolution cameras art historians have uncovered that Botticelli's famous painting The Birth of Venus may have had a curvy touch up. The images show that originally Venus may have been a little more svelte but in keeping with the voluptuous aesthetics of the day it looks like Botticelli gave her a little more curve.
I have another fab blog to recommend this week. Thin and Curvy is a fantastic personal blog following the physical, emotional and shopping journeys of a thin girl with naturally big boobs. I love her post from today showing off an unexpected curvy friendly buy - the best kinds!
Whatever you're up to this weekend I'm wishing you a very happy long weekend! xx
