New Year, New Glam

20 Jan

Hello Glamourites!

Happy New Year to everyone and I hope you all had a safe and relaxing holiday! Now that I am back in the big city and school I have time to get in the routine of updating posts on a regular basis {or let’s hope that will be the case}. I have put together pictures and inspiration of styles and tips I would like to focus on more this year. Let me know what your resolutions are for 2014!      xx Glamour Planner

No matter what you do be confident in yourself! Glitter sparkles brightly for everyone to see, show people your sparkle.newyearsparkle

This year I want to wear those “little black” dresses I have always said I will find an occasion for. newyearblackdress

Appreciate nature more, take walks on the trails or picnic on a hillside. newyearnature

Make time to right letters. Receiving a handwritten letter could be one of the most beautiful and thoughtful pieces of art and it now seems to be fading from this generation. newyearletters

Take time to enjoy your afternoon tea or coffee and add some silence in your day. newyeartea

Back in the day….

20 Jul

Back in the day when a tea break meant a major house production with fresh table linens, 5 piece cutlery, the finest of baked goods, and of course, your prettiest afternoon gown. While watching my new favourite show, Downton Abbey I am surprised how everything is taken very seriously and carried out with such perfection! That sort of formal attention to detail doesn’t seem to exist now-a-days and often the little things are not given the same consideration they used to.  For instance, when one of the gentlemen from the show wore the wrong dinner jacket for supper, it was evident that this was a faux pas. Sometimes I think I would enjoy that attention to detail; ensuring that every little piece was picture perfect when preparing a meal, setting the table, making a bed or even shining the silver. This show puts me in the mood to go back in time and experience it all first hand, which I realize is obviously not possible! However it does inspire me to try and accomplish the feel by throwing a Downton Abbey tea or dinner party! Here are some picture inspirations I found that may help to recreate a similar atmosphere.

Let me know if you give it a go. xx Glamour Planner

I only wish I could eat dinner like this every evening: silver candelabras, 4 different drinking glasses, individual salt and pepper, and of course, the delight of being served so graciously! I could go on!

Here is some fashion inspiration from Lissa Alexandra Photography on a shoot for vintage weddings but these dresses would also be adorable for an afternoon tea.

I couldn’t resist posting theses adorable “Downton Abbey” style sugar cookies, I can’t image the time it took to make them but they would be ideal for an afternoon tea!
