Proud to be an East coaster!

Once an East coaster…. ALWAYS an East coaster!

Many of you have heard of the brand East Coast Lifestyle.  It is a nautical lifestyle brand focused on promoting the lifestyle we live here on the East Coast and was created by Acadia University student Alex MacLean. An idea…from his home…and just 30 hoodies.

Tonight on the Live at 5 news there was a segment about Alex and his brand going to Washington, DC. East Coaster Alex Maclean was chosen to represent Canada at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards.  This is an international award for students who own and run businesses while attending college or university, and gives visibility to student business owners who are innovative, profitable, and socially responsible. In his own words, Alex wants to put Nova Scotia on the map!

Alex sold those initial 30 hoodies and actually sold 250,000 hoodies in the first year of business. How cool is that?

I love the brand and this East Coast girl wears hers proudly!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
