Hi! My name is Margarita and I am a blogger and influencer, a wife & mama to two beautiful children, and I am currently living in beautiful British Columbia – smack dab in between Vancouver & Whistler, near the lovely town of Squamish. I moved here from Toronto in 2009 and, after quite an adjustment period, am starting to appreciate everything the ‘Rainy Coast’ has to offer!

I have been blogging in different formats online since 2007, most popular and longest running being FabBrunette.com. Over the years I changed urls, blogging outlets, even my usernames online – everyone changes throughout the years, why shouldn’t  your online profile?


In my professional life I run a digital marketing agency, Electric Pizza Co, & co-owner of a design-build company, Surface Design Build.

While my work life is important to me, my biggest goal in life is to raise two beautiful children, allowing them to discover the world and encouraging them to play freely.

I am not by nature an “outdoors-ey” girl, however I have made quite the effort to spend more time outside! I love skiing and playing in the snow, and I push myself to go hiking, to play in the mud and run in the sand – no matter what creepy crawleys or huge animals might be lurking out there!


about west coast mama

 This blog is a place for me to write about my life, my family and parenting, my travels, and my dreams. You will often find me posting about recipes that I’ve come to love, finding ways in which to simplify my life, and different ways to go green. I also write about being an entrepreneur and the mis-balance of life and work.

It’s an outlet for me to write about things I’ve dealt with, like postpartum depression and anxiety or simple changes in my blogging. I also love documenting our home build – part 1, part 2, part 3 – so follow along as we build our dream!


If you’d like to connect with me, leave me a comment on a blog post – I adore comments! I try to respond to all of them! You can also catch me on twitter, see what I’m pinning on pinterest, and check out my latest pictures on instagram!

I also have a facebook page that you can reach me at as well.
