Total Crush! Ania B.
Total Crush! Ania B.
While all of the fashion world is sipping macchiatos in Italy for Milan Fashion Week, we thought we'd check in with one of our favourite Canadian fashion bloggers, Calgary's Ania B.
We've been crushing hard on Ania for years. This model/photographer shares her fashionable life in Calgary through gorgeous images taken by her and her husband, Tyler. We love Ania's fun, down to earth style that screams Fashion with a capital F without taking itself too seriously. Make sure to visit her blog to see what we mean and follow her on Instagram for daily updates. Fresh from a jaunt to New York Fashion Week, Ania checked in with us on some of her latest obsessions, including the best taco place in Calgary and the dangerous addiction of Tom Ford.
What's your favourite piece of clothing right now?
I just bought a pair of denim culottes at H&M that I'm obsessed with. I'm actually looking foreard to rocking the '70s trend this spring. I don't really think that tall girls can pull it off as well (mostly because long bell bottoms are really hard to come by), but I am determined to find a way to make it work.
What's your number one, can’t-live-without beauty product?
Completely in love with the Tom Ford Deeper Eye Defining Pen. The first time I used it was also the first time I finally managed to achieve the perfect cat eye. Something about the pen and the size of the brush...of course Tom Ford's packging is dangerously addictive as well.
Where is your favourite restaurant?
I have been on a crazy avocado and taco kick lately. We have been travelling for the last few months to different places and I have yet to found a spot that makes better tacos than Tubby Dog in Calgary. I sware those guys can't be beat. Maybe because they only serve them once a week for taco tuesdays.
Where is your favourite place to travel?
LA is the ultimate travel destination for me. It has everything I want: sunshine, water and the city and it's close to home so we can go there often. The history and the desert are big draws for me. I love having an excuse to bust out my cowboy hat outside of the stampede. A place I've fallen in love with last year was Seoul. Unfortunately that's a bit of a bigger commitment.
What do you do to stay healthy?
We have a rather active lifestyle because our jobs require us to move all the time, shooting and travelling. Lately, I've been to a couple surf set classes at Studio Revolution in Calgary but I also always come back to yoga. We also try to eat clean when we can, foods that are oil free and lean, lots of fruits for me as i'm not a huge fan of veggies and meat. When it comes to food I try not to buy into diets, theories constantly change as to what is good for you so i try to listen to my body instead.
What's your favourite movie?
Almost Famous. That never changes. I love Kate Hudson, the clothes and the "Tiny Dancer" scene always makes me feel like touring with a band would be the coolest thing ever. I'm completely not the right type of person for such things so that is not really in my future.
Who is your number one Girl Crush?
I don't really follow celebrities very much so I have to say one of my fellow bloggers. There are so many girls I admire but I did totally girl crush on Sandra from 5 Inch and Up in New York this past fashion week. She has a very defined grown up style, something I definitely aspire to but for now I just like to play and experiment. As much as I love the look of all neutrals it's hard to part with some of the funner pieces. I'll have to live vicariously through her until that time arrives.
