This summer my family took an amazing impromptu trip to the Okanagan Valley in the interior of beautiful British Columbia. If you haven’t visited there before, I’d highly recommend it.

The Okanagan area is known for it’s lush vineyards, orchards, rolling hills and clear blue lakes. The skiing in the winter is phenomenal. During the summer, the quaint towns are bustling with visitors eager to enjoy the countless sandy beaches, hot sun, and a variety of outdoor and water activities.

While we were visiting, I was introduced to the amazing Glory Bowl Salad Dressing by my dear friends Charity and Brian who are from the Okanagan. We were checking out one of the gorgeous wineries when I noticed Charity buying some interesting looking salad dressing. Having no idea what it was Charity gave me a little history.

Glory Bowl salad dressing is a delicious dressing created by B.C. chef Shelley Adams. Glory Bowl was named after a favourite ski bowl at the Whitewater Ski Resort in Nelson, B.C. which Shelley owned with her husband Mike. This recipe comes from her first cookbook Whitewater Cooks, Pure, Simple and Real. Shelley’s recipes are out of this world and I highly recommend them.

The Glory Bowl recipe makes more dressing than you may need, but you can use the leftover on chicken, rice, noodles or salad. I often give away my leftover dressing and my friends inevitably ask me for the recipe after sampling it. I make a slight variation of the original. To get the original version that includes a brown rice salad that Shelley suggests making with the dressing click here.

Today I’m excited to share a fun freebie for creatives, bloggers, Instagrammers and small businesses. Good images are a key part of putting together great visual content for your website, promo material or blog posts. But finding images to use can sometimes be difficult. If you’re not using strong, quality photos, you could be losing potential readers, clients and customers. Not to worry, I’ve got you covered.

If you’re looking for professional, feminine styled stock photos, you’ve come to the right place. Perhaps you haven’t heard of “styled stock photos” before – it’s a term used to describe stock photos that have been organized to capture a particular look and feel. Usually, these are photos of desktops with various business, tech and lifestyle objects laid out together. Photos of objects taken from directly above are called “flat lay photos”. Flat lays are super trendy and all the rage these days, especially on Instagram.

I love fooling around and experimenting with photos so this was a fun little photo shoot for me. These styled photos are my gift to you. They’re versatile and can be used for so many things including social media headers, banner, blog post images, sidebar and website banners, mock-ups, text overlays, desktop wallpapers and more.

I’d love to see what amazing things you do with these photos. Email, facebook or hashtag your photos with #dabblesandbabbles on Instagram or Twitter and I’ll post your images on my social media accounts.
