BIG ANNOUNCEMENT 🎉
I am SO EXCITED to share what I’ve been working on for quite some time now. @yourottawalifestyle 😍
Its apparel designed to accompany you on all your adventures in the capital and beyond! From the Rideau Canal to Gatineau Park it celebrates all the gems you’ll find within the capital region. There’s so much to uncover in this wonderful city and its the people that add to Ottawa’s vibrance and charm 😊
My vision for Ottawa Lifestyle started a few years ago when I was on the Rideau Canal! I wanted an ‘Ottawa’ toque to sport through the season. I started searching for a high quality hat to make sure it could withstand our cold winters!
Similar to how sport fans can instantly bond by recognizing a fan from apparel, that’s my hope for Ottawa Lifestyle. I want it to be a brand that you can take pride in wherever you go ☺️
It’s no secret that I love this city so much! For the last few years my journey on here has been unbelievable from all the wonderful people and experiences!
I want Ottawa Lifestyle to be an account where we can celebrate community! This is about YOUR Ottawa Lifestyle.
It’s about celebrating community. Soaking up every season. Appreciating Ottawa’s beauty. Making every day count.
Follow along at @yourottawalifestyle and check out the shop at www.yourottawalifestyle.com. PRESALE starts TODAY and you can be one of the first in Ottawa to have the new apparel! We’re starting with a few signature items 😉
Right now products are available in Canada but I’m hoping to expand soon!

The HA-300, the first domestically built fighter jet in the Arab world, Helwan, Egypt – 1964 – 1969 🇪🇬
In the early 1960’s Egypt aspired to develop and produce a domestic fighter jet. To achieve this goal, the Egyptian government looked for international partners, and found one in Spain.
Following the end of WW II, the famous German aeronautical engineer, Willy Messserschmitt, joined Hispano Aviacion in 1951, and was tasked with designing a Spanish fighter jet.
Willy Messerschmitt is renowned for his aeronautical engineering skills and was responsible for the most famous jet of WW II, the Messerschmitt ME-262A. This jet could have possibly changed the outcome of the war if it had come a little earlier and in greater numbers. (Source: globalsecurity.org)
During his time with Hispano Aviacion, Messerschmitt's team designed a lightweight supersonic fighter designated as HA-300P.
In 1956, the Egyptian government had started negotiations and contracts with Hispano Aviacion; but by 1960, Spain has abandoned the project due to the costs associated with it and the resultant long development time.
This is when Egypt acquired the design from Hispano Aviacion, and the design team, headed by Messerschmitt, moved to Helwan, Egypt, to continue its work on the HA-300, which now stood for Helwan Aircraft 300.
A total of 3 prototypes were built.
The first two fighters used a British engine; however, President Nasser did not want to be dependent on the British engine as this was seen as a national threat in future conflicts.
The Egyptians hired Austrian engineer Ferdinand Brandner, to lead a team to design an even more powerful engine than the British one.
This gave birth to the Egyptian Brandner E-300 engine, which was used on the 3rd and final prototype.
Following the defeat in the 1967 Six-Day War with Israel, Egypt abandoned the HA-300 project in 1969, due to financial constraints. Additionally, the German engineers were receiving death threats from the Mossad, which forced them to leave the country.

Fall is almost at the end, with Ottawa getting rain now and probably snow in another week or so it’s almost a farewell for fall. 🍂
There is a funny story behind creating this picture! Today in Ottawa we had quiet a lot of rain in the after noon and it was pretty windy. I was playing scrabble when these fall leaves flew up in my balcony. (Hence the picture) and looking at them I realised I had all these words on my board (except is and all) 😉 Well, it’s almost like a goodbye to fall. All the leaves we saw on the trees will soon be on the roads and grounds and we’ll have snow on the trees.
P.S. can’t promise this is the last fall picture. ☺️ #fallfashion#falldecor#falloutfit#fall2019#Ottawa#orange#red#coloursoffall#October#myottawa #
