Every spring a number of Tulip farms in the outskirts of Vancouver hold an annual tulip festival to show off the rows and rows of beautiful blooms that arrive once the cold winter starts to turn to spring!  

A group of us decided to head out to see it for ourselves and we were not disappointed.  The festival is held in Abbotsford about an hour east of downtown Vancouver!  If you do head out remember to take your gum boots as the ground is pretty soggy but definitely worth a visit if you are in town late April/early May.

If you have been following me on instagram lately you will see I have had a bit of thing for flowers!  I really do love beautiful blooms and capturing with my camera is one of my favourite things to do.  There’s no doubt that flowers are one of life’s simplest yet most beautiful pleasures, and there is literally no occasion that cannot be made just that little bit more special by a gorgeous bouquet of blooms.  

Sydney-based florist The Flower Man truly understand the power that the perfect floral arrangement can have to transform someone’s day. It also just so happens that they’ve just updated their website with a gorgeous new design and colour scheme, which had a slightly old-school flower shop feel to it, with its pastel green and white stripes. 

To celebrate their new site, they sent me a gorgeous bunch of white flowers and they are giving one lucky reader the chance to win a $100 gift voucher to spend on anything at all on their website.

I am pleased to be bringing you today’s blog post in conjunction with Endota Day Spa who have just launched the life’s lessons project –  a celebration of the profound pearls of wisdom passed down from generation to generation, from mother to daughter and friend to friend. They are those wise words of wisdom that give us strength, guidance or even just a life hack or two. I know I have my own little collection of life lessons and in an ode to Mother’s Day, Endota Spa are inviting Australians to recognise and share their favourite lessons from the influential women in their lives.

To join in with the Life Lessons Project all you need to do is head to the Endota Spa Facebook Page and share your life’s lesson.  There is a wonderful prize of an Endota Spa gift pack to be won as well as a few select people will be presented with beautiful Endota Spa Gift Vouchers.  Make sure you leave a comment here, on my Facebook page, or on my instagram profile so I can check your entry.  I will share more of my life’s lessons during the week.

Click here first to visit the Life Lessons Project and make your entry.
