Gold and silver are perfectly sparkly and are making a statement this year in the design world. As for weddings this colour palette works extremely well for chair covers, table decor and much more! WTrendsinvitations2

2. Pale Pink

Any shade of pink works in your wedding and will always be a classic colour trend. Depending on the combination it can be made sweet and girly, fun and colourful or whichever style you’re heading in.

That Tutu Touch

11 Oct

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone had a great week and an even better upcoming weekend! As usual I go through my daily sites and look for anything that inspires or catches my eye, this week it happen to be tutu’s. Surprisingly, because I’ve never worn a tutu {well besides when I was 4 and did ballet..} but in these particular outfits I really like it. I may even have to go purchase one for my closet. Take a look and let me know your thoughts on tutu’s  xx Glamour Planner

This would be my tutu style skirt if I owned one ~ I like that it is long and a more edgy colour.tutuLong

I would also totally wear this {when summer rolls around again} a perfect neutral colour to pair with anything!

Here is an example that could totally be pulled off this fall/winter, a much more full skirt added with some gems and put together with a sweater and belt. tutuWinter

The shape of this skirt just says classy to me, the length, how the panels fold and the waist line ~ perfect for dress up. tutuclassy

If all these tutu’s are still feeling too girly for you, throw on some black leather and heavier pieces to dull it down. tutuLeather

Pumpkin Season

9 Oct

Hello Galmourites,

Now almost being the middle of October we know that pumpkin time is just around the corner….aka HALLOWEEN. Okay so I have to admit I’m actually not a huge Halloween fan but I LOVE Christmas and I know that once Halloween has past we are very close to the winter holidays! None-the-less I still enjoy the festivities such as pumpkin carving. Every year I want to try a new innovative design but always go back to the classic knife cutting technique. Here are some examples of pumpkin designs you can try out this year using different materials. xx Glamour Planner

This is a great use for all those spare buttons your collect over the year. Glue them to the pumpkin to make a word or design.  pumpkinbuttons

Painting your pumpkin is fun as you can create your own theme with what colours you use or patterns. pumpkinblackandwhite

This is one idea I do want to try this year, take any type of patterned lace or pantyhose and wrap the pumpkin. pumpkinlace

For last minute pumpkin decorating take metallic decals or stickers and place on the pumpkin.

If you are displaying several pumpkins, place mini lights or candles inside to line your walkway or porch for a pretty effect.

Eat Here!

7 Oct

Hello Glamourites,

Been a busy and fun-filled weekend for me topped with LOTS of eating. Food has got to be one of my favourite things in this world, I really wish I could eat all day and not gain weight haha I know, not possible. All this got me thinking about kitchens, this is where all the food prep happens, eating and when parties are happening people always seem to gather in the kitchen. It’s a central area and always seems to be where the hub of the home is. Here are some differently styles of kitchens that got me thinking about my dream kitchen xx Glamour Planner

This space has a fun combination of vintage hardware with modern pop of colour.kitchenmint

Countertop is always key for a successful kitchen, you need lots of space to be able to spread out. kitchenclassic

A very classic feel from this kitchen with the arched ceiling feature, moulding detail around the stove and island with the bronze taps.

For a more unique kitchen this space adds pop art, retro title and simple lines. kitchenpop

Stepping into this kitchen would feel like taking a step into the past, this space is rich in stone, wood and marble. kitchenrustic

Go to Basics

17 Sep

Hello Glamourites!

I hope you are having an enjoyable week so far! I know I am already looking forward to the weekend myself! In fashion we are constantly trying to find out what the latest trend is, the newest designer or the biggest name brand. This can be difficult and tiring, believe me. Sometimes I find it helpful to go to the back of my closet and pull out the basics. The ones that are so simple that when put together they make a statement. I love doing this because it’s a great opportunity to wear those clothes that you haven’t been able to be wear lately. You feel much more creative mixing and matching until you chose a winner outfit. These outfits I have selected are what I would think are most likely in many of our closets (or something similar) and are appropriate for many occasions. Take a look and maybe tomorrow you will find yourself digging in the back of your cupboards. xx Glamour Planner

For this outfit I really enjoying the solid shade colours, black, grey and white. It creates amazing dimension while looking simple and classic.

With these cool days creeping up on us there is nothing better that your old big knit scarf. Pair it with some leather and lips that pop.b4dc18c64c8fe70e44e2d2e0111812cd

Try that old-school braid look your Mom always used to do…or change it up with a fishbraid! 78593271d9fec0bfe0207fd55783b059

This tee is awesome because of the clean V neck but the leather sleeves gives it some edge to the basic look.70bdda0066b9869784f2324044dfef9e

Why not dress up those summer shorts with a baggy top or crop top and your fave heels. 51062e2a7e5ecfc0bf8e7f4ba305af6c

Nothing gets more back to basics with the white tank, jeans and black heels. Easy, vintage and fab.

That Vintage LOOK

14 Aug

Good Evening Glamourites,

I find sometimes when you are searching for outfit inspiration or struggling with what to wear, it’s always smart to look back on history. As it sometimes can be with lots of situations, going vintage is never a bad decision; always classic, perfect for any occasion and it makes a statement. Here are some pictures I love the look of, making me want to go back into time and experience that era in person! Throw a little “old school” vibe into your next outfit xx Glamour Planner

HEART these shades. Have some fun with your sunglass choice this summer!

When’s the last time you used a hula-hoop?Vintage|hulahoopAny type of jewels or beading on a dress that adds glam factor and makes you shine.

Make it Unique

11 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

It has been a busy, busy week as I have been volunteering at a kid’s camp – lots of fun but very tiring. I am home now and ready to get back to writing some posts! I know people are always trying to come up with the next big trend or most unique aspect to their wedding. Here are some creative ideas (I thought) that are a little out of the norm and are fairly easy as well. Tell me your latest wedding inspiration xx Glamour Planner

Well first of all, this little boy is adorable, and how easy would it be make this heart-shaped chalkboard sign and write a simple phrase like this. Too cute to handle.
MakeitUnique|signFor guests or wedding party gifts you can create a little book that flips through a 10-30 second video clip from the wedding. You can get this done at many wedsites such as http://www.flipclips.com/
MakeitUnique|bookI couldn’t resist posting this dress train as the detailing, the buttons and the pattern of the lace is just gorgeous and one-of-a-kind.
MakeitUnique|dresstrainWe girls know how much we love our shoes so why not make them the focus of some of the pictures? This adds for a touch of mystery in the photo and also allows you to show off your great heels.

Get CoZy

27 Jul

Hello Glamourites!

I hope everyone is having a fun start to your weekend! I’m at my cottage for the weekend and can’t wait to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. What’s especially nice at the end of a long day of watersports and sunbathing is to cozy up in a bed full of pillows or soak in a nice warm bubble bath. It a calming way to wind down after a long week or a particularly busy weekend. These inspiration pictures remind me of the perfect spot just to curl up with a good book or take a cat nap. Go find your cozy spot this weekend xx Glamour Planner

This large “L” couch looks like the perfect corner area to snuggle up with a blanket and watch a movie.
Getcozycouch&blanketThe detailing in the window moulding reminds me of an old Victorian home with the large drapery curtains. A perfect space to spend an afternoon daydreaming.
GetCozyWindowI don’t think there is anything more classic than a big bed with white sheets, white pillows and a gorgeous headboard. I wish I could run and jump into these bed for a pre-dinner nap!
Getcozybedahh…what could possibly be more calming to chase all your stress away than a nice warm bath, with candles of course, and flower petals; this room has it all!

Short ShortS

22 Jul

Hello Glamourites!

Hope you are all having a nice start to your week and the weather is as beautiful as it is for me! The sun is shinning and the birds are singing (well in my mind they are). I am also noticing a ton of stores having great sales on already for their summer collections, so a great time to get some deals and stock up on some summer clothing! Because of the heat lately I am loving my shorts, although I don’t have many, and have put these ones on my favourite list. Hopefully I will be able to expand my shorts wardrobe with these sales around. Hope you like my picks  xx Glamour Planner

I figured I should put my all-time favourite at the top… I NEED these. Yes need. The colouring is amazing and the added studs makes it a fantastic duo.
shortsgreenThese denim shorts I like because they look a little baggier which makes them comfy to run around in or for a casual event. Also being a little high waisted and circle studs makes them unique.
shortsstudWhite shorts are the classic summer fashion. Great for a beach afternoon, BBQ or shopping downtown.
shortswhiteFor a more formal attire you can go with a tweed material which feels more classy. Gold is always a solid choice for colour as you can always match it with whatever else you are in the mood for.
shortstweedLastly another denim, good old basic short. I thought the square stud detailing on the back was very cute and can be made casual or even higher fashion with some heels and a fun top.

Knock Knock

17 Jul

Hi Glamourites!

I feel that choosing the right door or threshold for a home gives your guest an impression of what style to expect or possibly captures their interest for what lies beyond. A door can be incredibly personal, especially these days as you can choose so many different colours, styles, shapes, materials and much more. It is the first step in creating the excitement of coming to a new house, observing the doorway and imagining what is behind, piquing the interest of what the interior will look like. Doors can be all about creating a welcoming and beautiful entrance to your home.

xx Glamour Planner

DOOR KNOB: the first thing you will most likely look for on a door as well as touch. This beautiful rustic gold knob against the teal coloured door creates a fantasy vibe that makes you excited for what is ahead!

doorteal That TIFFANY blue…how can you not like it!?! The door and hardware provide a very classic look for a fun family household and with the diagonal detailing adding some extra interest.

doortiffanyblueDOUBLE DOOR entry makes for a stunning entrance for any home, particularly  with a grand lobby such as this. Using glass as the main material for this door is a little more of a daring move but will pay off in the end! They are a little more upkeep with cleaning but it creates gorgeous ornamentation.  doorinteriorIf you are wanting to have something completely unique this is a great option! This door is completely glass but a mosaic of all different colours creating a beautiful array of colours reflected in the entrance.
doorlightYes, I am a girl who loves her PINK. Guilty. Truly though this door is the perfect colour between obnoxious hot pink and a too subtle pale rose. Of course the handle accessory is a masterpiece of its own.
