Why “Everything But Weddings”?

I used to own a successful wedding blog called Vancity Bride for a number of years.

It no longer exists and I no longer write about weddings.

(Yes, I still believe in marriage and all that mushy stuff.)

A few more factoids about Jeannine

… I was born in the Philippines, living in beautiful Vancouver, BC

… I’m a cat-lover: I have a tuxedo cat named Hobbes who hates sushi and loves water. I do love dogs too. Follow him on Instagram @hobbesyvr !

… I love photography. I have used a Canon EOS 60D and since switched to a Sony A6500. I love taking my camera around while traveling but sports photography is my jam. You can spot me at cyclocross races or running races which I’m not participating in. Click here for a glimpse in the world of cyclocross.

… I love traveling. Highlights include visiting some of the Philippine Islands | Brussels, Belgium | Paris, France | Berlin & Munich, Germany | Rome, Italy | Copenhagen, Denmark | Oslo, Norway | Salzburg & Vienna, Austria – where should I go next?

… I’m a Vancouver blogger and runner. I caught the running bug in the fall of 2014 and have been seriously training since January 2015. I have since completed many races of various distances, including 4 marathons and 1 ultramarathon. I’m always looking for my next challenge and I write about my journey and accomplishments.

… I LOVE FOOD! Seriously, I can’t stop eating… which is why I need to work out 4 times a week, to keep up with how much I eat.

… I hated beer until I was introduced to the good stuff and now I’m hooked on trying different craft breweries and the list is growing.

… I love movies, especially those made by Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers, & Guy Ritchie. I also love sappy romantic comedies and cartoons on occasion 😛

… I speak 2 languages (English and Tagalog) but j’étudie francais aussi und ich lerne Deutsch. Why? Because I’ve always wanted to learn French and German is just so challenging that it’s addicting… so I have to keep going.

I’m also a Brand Ambassador!
