It's Wednesday. Or in Instagram terms #wcw. If hashtags evade you, WCW stands for Woman Crush Wednesday, and what better way to celebrate than by giving you all a run down of my fave BC (British Columbia) based ladies who are showing off all this West Coast province has to offer.
A recent Ontario transplant, Jenn and her uber talented hubby, Travis are now calling Peachland in the Okanagan home. When she isn't working alongside Peachland Tourism or sitting on numerous tourism boards in the surrounding area she can be found with her feet on a trail and her head directed towards the mountains looking for that perfect viewpoint to soak it all in. With a degree in Tourism Jenn is definitely putting all of that hard work to use celebrating her new hometown!
Clara is the babe behind this account who loves to travel and take photos of waterfalls and nature. Living by the motto "Live life beautifully", She is based in Vancouver, B.C. and offers her wisdom with inspiring quotes on each Instagram post. Whether she's chasing waterfalls or exploring the hidden gems Vancouver has to offer Clara is definitely never one to turn down an adventure. Her gallery strives to inspire those for a love of hiking and travelling & does just that with each snapshot she shares with us.
@joyyiu When it comes to mountain top views & incredible PNW adventures Joy is your girl! Showcasing all the amazing scenery that makes up B.C her feed is sure to leave you feeling like you've just seen a magical wonderland. A big advocate for taking advantage of every opportunity that comes her way, she's always up for an adventure (especially if it involves climbing a mountain). Her composition and captions are some not to be missed, leading you to believe that B.C is a spectacular other universe when you see her feed.
The lady behind the lens on this account is Danielle, a communications professional living and working in Vancouver. When she isn’t working in B.C.’s liquor industry, you can definitely find her walking on the seawall, running on the trails, or climbing one of the North Shore mountains.

For Nat, the wonder woman behind this feed adventure is what makes her who she is, it's in her DNA. From far off places to right in her own backyard adventure is always at the forefront. Born & Raised in Toronto, an educational career in Australia & now lucky enough to call Victoria, BC home, Nat is adventure mom to 3 beauties. When she isn't working her butt off styling the residents of Vancouver Island she's chasing some serious waterfalls, getting lost in ancient forests & spending nights on the beach. For Nat her every day turns into an adventure by just getting out there, I think we could all benefit from thinking like this.
With a love for the majestic snow capped mountains like no other, Sam definitely had me (and probably a lot of other Vancouver residents) re-thinking my distaste for winter this year. Taking advantage of any & all peaks she comes across her feed will have you grabbing you gear & heading out into the great unknown for what is sure to be an incredible adventure. If you needed anymore reason to check out B.C and all it has to offer then jump on over to her feed ASAP!
Miss Lana's feed is one that will surely stoke that adventurous flame that's deep inside you. With a killer "live life to the fullest" vibe, she can be found running full tilt to the nearest (or furthest) glacial lake, or loving life from the tippy top of Vancouver and the PNW mountains that surround her. Fully aware of the incredible beauty that surrounds her, she's always up for an adventure or two and keeps the company of some incredible photographers. You'll be able to spot Lana by her life-loving smile - and possibly a fun flamingo floaty!
All about making things pop! That's what will first draw your eyes to Gabby's feed, and you'll stay for the absolutely stunning scenery she shoots. Whether she's exploring ice caves, her own B.C backyard or the corners of the globe you'll get a glimpse into some exceptional places thanks to Miss. G. Armed with an incredible sense of adventure she's always up to go out and shoot & turns even the dreariest of Vancouver days into pure magic!
There's one bomb babe behind this account, Natasha, who is crushing it! Showcasing all that her beautiful province has to offer by creating a feed to both inspire and connect other women in & around BC through a shared love of adventure. Can't get enough #girlpower in the world these days so it's incredibly refreshing to see someone who is all for promoting an adventurous lifestyle by connecting women who may otherwise not have crossed paths in their day to day lives.
