“After having spent the better part of a decade in
Toronto living in Guelph has definitely helped me embrace a slower pace of life,” Lee Vosburgh relayed in our interview below. “Everything just feels a little more laid-back and a little less stressful.” From London to Los Angeles, we’ve had the opportunity to peel back the layers of some of the world’s most dynamic major cities, but in the case of today’s Neighborhood Story, we’re excited to shed light on a small town whose residents truly have big hearts.
Enter style blogger and creative professional Lee Vosburgh. Our interviewee’s thoughtful approach to both life and style has captivated us for quite some time. In fact, Lee prides herself on maintaining a heavily curated collection of clothing that boasts an impressive assortment of contemporary ethical and independent designers. Lee’s goal is to offer a unique a point of view and support emerging designers who she believes are contributing to something more than just our outfits. As she stated in our interview below, “I think Style Bee serves people who are looking to take a step back from what has become a frenzied approach to fashion and shopping and speaks to those who want to shop with intention and embrace their personal style thoughtfully without feeling the need to constantly keep up.”
With that in mind, we wanted to further explore Lee’s approach to style and learn how this thought process has translated to all aspects of her life in Guelph. From living in a major city like Toronto to embracing the pleasures of small-town living, explore the city of Guelph through Lee’s eyes and discover more of her thoughts on life in Canada, finding (and celebrating) personal style, and Guelph’s position on fostering a sustainable lifestyle.

Hi! I’m Lee Vosburgh,
a Guelph based creative with an unabashed love for furry friends and house plants. When I’m not glued to a screen I’m probably out on a walk with my pup, hashing out home renovation ideas with my partner Dave, riding my cruiser along the river, listening to a record or enjoying a delicious meal. As much as I love visiting my favorite shops and new spots around town I’m a homebody at heart, so a night in with a glass of wine, good friends, and a fun game is never a bad idea to me.
