Dusty Rose


It's been unusually warm for fall this week... not that I'm complaining.  Stubborn, I refused to wear shorts today, sorry summer, you had your chance to shine.  It's time for opaque black tights, riding boots and colourful pashmenas!  But since the weather still thinks its summer, I decided on this number, which I think perfectly reflects the transitional period to autumn.

I'm so excited about this necklace, which I've just purchased (as is part of an upcoming haul video this week!). I just adore big jewelry!

PS: Nail tutorial on this look will be up soon... soon stay tuned! ;)

Before "I Do": Engagement Photos + Behind-The-Scene Footage

I'm so excited to share with you girls a few of the photos from our engagement photo session a month or so ago!  We had so much fun (ok I had a BLAST and Chris put up with all the photos) and loved the couple we worked with.  Can't wait to share with you our big day... just the beginning of forever together :)

Here are a couple of extra photos from the shoot as well as the video I put together of everything.  I'm really happy with the result and it means so much that I get to share it with you all.

Looking for tips and tricks on buying a wedding dress?  I share a few from my trip dress shopping :)

FINALLY! Beauty Samples for CANADIANS!


I don't know if you girls have noticed, but I've been seeing a ton of people making videos featuring companies who sell memberships to get new and exciting beauty products.  When I first saw one, I eagerly checked out their website to see that they did not ship outside of the US. Ack, us beauty-obsessed Canadians are ignored AGAIN!  Until now.

I was approached by a new company called Glymm.com.  Curious, I did my research and was thrilled with what I saw! Glymm.com is the only Canadian company to offer a monthly "beauty in a box" subscription service, and also features an online Boutique where you can buy full-sized versions of the minis you got in your beauty box!

The subscription service is what seems to be the standard $10/month or $110/year.  Each box contains 4-5 beauty samples featuring brands like Cargo, OPI, Stila, NARS, Gucci and Lise Watier.  And each sample is chosen for you based on your unique skin type/concerns, hair texture, age and even your beauty style preferences.  Pretty cool huh?  That way you'll actually use the samples you get!

Glymm generously offered to send me a box of beauty goodies, so of course I had to ask if I could sneak some fabulous loot for you girls too!  Lucky for me, they were all for it so stay tuned to see the big reveal and a fun giveaway!

Have you girls tried Glymm.com?  If so, what are your thoughts on it?  Or even on the whole "beauty sample box" trend that's been going on?

Fall Beauty Trend: Bold, Colored Eyeliner

I was inspired to do an easy makeup tutorial featuring a really popular trend I've been seeing a lot of lately: bold, coloured eyeliner.  I used teal for this look but it would look equally as pretty with royal blue, metallic purple and emerald.

Would you wear this look?  Let me know in the comments below!

Words to Live By...

Written on the wall in Mother Teresa's home:

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend your years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.


In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
