3 Tips to Feeling Put Together in Minutes

August 17, 2017

Somedays getting up in the morning and getting ready for the day is a seamless routine.  While others, not so much.  You know, those days where you hit snooze countless times in a row, your hair is in MAJOR need of washing and somehow you need to be out the door in 10 minutes?  Well, for those days, these are three tricks I use to feel put together in a flash!

  1. Bold Lip Colour:  On those rushed days when you only have time for the makeup basics, a bold lip colour can be the quickest way to brighten up your face.
  2. Statement Piece:  Whether a dramatic blazer, shoes, necklace or the perfect little off the shoulder dress with a dramatic sleeve like I’m wearing above, a statement piece is sure to have you feeling put together.  And looking down at a fun outfit all day is sure to keep your spirits high.
  3. Go-To Hairstyle: When I don’t have time to curl my hair and wear it down, I have 3 easy hairstyles I wear on repeat.  Braids, a top knot or a half up doo, mastering a few simple hairstyles can make your life so much simpler.  Because lets be honest, nothing is worse than a bad hair day.

Tie the Knot Tuesday: Our Engagement Photos

August 1, 2017

I’m so excited to officially launch the first of my wedding series, Tie the Knot Tuesday!  For the next year, on the first Tuesday of every month, I will be writing a blog post related to our wedding planning process.  Whether it’s about creating a colour scheme, our engagement party or simply hurdles in the planning process, I’ll be filling you in on our experience. I can’t wait to share our journey to the alter with you!

To kick off the series, I wanted to share some of our engagement photos.  If you follow me on Instagram it’s likely you’ve seen a few of these on your feed.  But I’ve been getting so many questions about them, I knew I had to share more than just a couple.

One of my top priorities for our wedding is finding a photographer who can capture our precious moments together on the big day.  And finding that person to capture the engagement phase in our life is just as important.  When Kyle and I spontaneously booked a trip to Kelowna a few weeks ago, we knew we wanted to celebrate our love in that special city.  It was a no brainer to shoot our engagement photos there.  I knew I wanted to have the moment captured at golden hour in the mountains.  I was lucky enough to find such a lovely photographer who really went beyond with my vision.  It was such a pleasure to work with Ashley Godin.  I had been following Ashley on Instagram for awhile so I really fell in love with her work.  She truly captured a true sense of Kyle and I–a lot of love and a little goofy.


Athletic T-Shirt Dress

July 28, 2017

Athleisure has to be the cutest trend going right now with at 10/10 on the comfort scale.  Who knew dressing up your workout wear could be so great?!  I recently picked up this athletic t-shirt dress which fits perfectly into that trend.  It’s loose fit and uber soft fabric has me staying comfortable all day long.  I’ve dressed it up with a fun lace up sandal.  [Tip: If you find your athletic look is looking more gym wear than streetwear, dress it up with a interesting shoe.  Whether it’s a cute sandal or platform sneaker, your shoes can really transform your look.]  What are your feels on this trend? If you love it, how do you like to style your athleisure looks?
