Hi there, thanks for taking time to stop by here!
Maple Leopard is a blog that specializes in fashion tips, style guides, and travel stories. It is also a community to share inspiration and find beauty in everyday life. I'm passionate about inspiring ladies in middle age to feel beautiful, confident, and to take more travel breaks! I believe style has no age or size. I started Maple Leopard in 2014 to help others with style tips and to share my love of travel.
Who Is the girl behind the blog?
I 'm Valerie, originally from Vancouver, B.C. Canada. The Seattle area has been my home for many years . I'm a reading teacher by day, and a blogger by night. I do love teaching and mentoring young people. My love of fashion started in the early teens. I learned to sew in middle school at age 13. I loved this way to express personal style through creation of my own garments. It's my dream to design my own collection someday!
Travel is another passion of mine. I'm always planning the next adventure and researching destinations. I like to learn as much as possible about the places I visit, so I can share the best tips for travel here on the blog. My idea of the perfect getaway is lounging on the beach in a tropical place. My favorite vacations spots are Oahu Hi, San Fransisco, The Canadian Rockies, and Southern CA.
Other facts about me: I'm a cat lover, pianist, love the outdoors and am into healthy living. I believe a smile can always make someone's day better. I'm thankful for God's grace and my family.
Whether you’re a new follower or have been reading my blog from the beginning, thank you so much for supporting Maple Leopard. I hope this is a spot where you can find inspiration and even a few laughs along the way. I value each visit, comment, and kind word.
I would be thrilled if you join me on Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest. I love to connect and share with others there as well!
