Thanks for visiting West Coast City Girl! I’m Yasmine, and I’m so pleased to e-meet you. I’m a newly minted ex-pat, having recently followed my heart from Vancouver to the UK to start a new chapter with my Englishman in Cambridgeshire. This blog is all about enjoying what the world has to offer while keeping well and staying on budget. I’ve made it my mission to live life knowing that one doesn’t have to spend a fortune or sacrifice wellness to have an amazing journey.
West Coast City Girl started out as a place to share random musings and recipes during a crazy cleanse back. Over the years it has become a place to share my love of travel, food + beverage and yoga, and some affordable #GetThrifty tips for it all.
A little bit about me
In my day job, I’m a freelance content writer for small businesses and tourism. I also teach yoga and host the City Girl Talks podcast. I finished paying off credit debt in 2018 — and if you live in Canada, yes, that’s me on the poster and in the testimonial commercial.
Very much a city girl, I’m more of a glamper than a camper. But I love the beauty of the outdoors and a good hike. My partner (The Brit) and I love to play tourist in our town and firmly believe the best way to travel is to live like a local and get hygge wherever we are.
I balance my day job with the yoga and travel that feed my soul (and my need for good food and wine — or beer or whisk(e)y!) Yes, I’m one of those West Coasters that loves yoga. So much so that I became a certified teacher. I would be lost without the time I spend on my mat — it goes where I go.
I hope this blog inspires you to try new things and enjoy our beautiful world. Thanks for visiting and reading along!
