Confetti

4 May

Hello Glamourites,

Sorry for being very MIA the last month but it was the final countdown of school before summer vacation which meant there was lots of work and presentations to be done. Luckily I am all finished now and I have much more free time for hobbies, friends and having fun! I thought it would be appropriate to then write this post on party inspiration and decorations. Confetti is fun, colourful and easy to use in many ways for any type of party. Some people associate it with children’s parties but I have found some ideas of how you can use it in new creative ways! xx Glamour Planner

Taking strips of tissue paper or anything that is colourful and tying to a rope you can hang this for party decor around the room. It is easy to customize making the colour match your particular theme.  confettistring

Glue confetti or glitter to the exterior of balloons to make for a touch of sparkle. confettiballoon2

Using clear balloons and filling the inside with whatever you have around the house, buttons, paper scraps, glitter, sequins, ect makes for an exciting illusion. confettiballoon

Another use for confetti is to decorate your glasses or dishes to surprise your guests! confettiwine

You know you love it

Hello Glamourites!

I hope {to all my Canadian’s} you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and managed to get through the week while still being stuffed with turkey! I know I still am. Thinking about the upcoming dark days of fall and winter upon us, I am even more drawn to this colour but I must say it is regardless one of my favourite colours. PINK. I know even if you aren’t a girly-girly it is still a fun colour to look at and brightens your day with a pop. Regardless of my future home’s theme I plan to have at least one room with some pink burst. I think it can add such an energy to a room and lift your spirits no matter the type of day you are having. Here are some fun spaces I think that the colour pink really works!             xx Glamour Planner

Normally that much of one colour in a hallway and doorways I would find too much but because you come from all white surroundings it creates a sense of light and excitement. pinkhallway

I would totally have this kitchen. It’s bright, energetic and creative. Everything you want for a kitchen space. pinkkitchen

For a more gentle pink in a dining room or living area this pale rose works well over the chandelier adding warmth.  pinkchandiller

Pink in a bathroom is a very good choice as it’s the first place you go once you wake up and you want something to give you a boost for the day. pinkbathroom

For a office space or a communal working space trying to be more industrial can still be a fun colour! pinkfurniture

The Date

26 Sep

Hi Glamourites,

My apologies for not posting lately at all, I have been sick in bed for the the past three days and barely able to much of anything. As you know one of my passions is wedding planning and am always on the lookout for the latest trend or unique way of doing it your special way. Here are some examples of “Save The Date” cards that are a little different than the norm. Enjoy xx Glamour Planner

For a city couple or big city wedding this would be a neat perspective! SaveTheDatecab

I can’t resist how cute this balloon idea is, may be a little cheesy but very creative!    SaveTheDateballoons

My love for shoes adores this card inspiration. SaveTheDateHeels

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.

Hi Glamourites,

Obviously I am struggling to get readjusted to this whole school routine thing again; not used to requiring an attention span for longer than an hour listening to lectures! Needless to say, I have felt very uninspired and seem to be lacking in energy to write any posts. I am determined to make that change and commit more time to the blog and my own creative research. Here are  some pictures I saw last week, as well as a few more that I found today. Perhaps they will get me excited for the fall days ahead! Enjoy xx Glamour Planner

Okay I’m not excited for the cold fall days but this sweater makes me come to terms with it. Love the two tone colours!

The simple lines within the heel straps are very eye catching while still casual enough to wear with jeans.

It’s a risk to try opposite direction stripes in one outfit but when pulled off, it’s a success!

Black and white two faced pants…I’d say these are pretty awesome. 84c2fd6b4e44bf24d840a4920f68f0ea

Scarves are a must have for this upcoming season and I love all the colours as well as line thicknesses in this scarf making it fun! 2e17a4fcacb6a7debeec91789b7c7dfc

Party Necessities

24 Jun

Hi my Glamourites,

I thought  I should do a post on the TOP necessities that I think are crucial for a successful dinner party, cocktail party, afternoon tea or any other type of gathering. I owe a lot of credit to my mother for most of these inspirations and ideas! She is the one who has taught me everything there is to being a great hostess and throwing the perfect party!

1. CANDLES

I can’t think of a more simple thing than candles to completely change the ambience of a room just by dimming the lights to make it feel really feel special. You can buy candles just about anywhere at just about any price range and use them at almost any event.Just remember to leave a few extra minutes before the party to run around and light them all! As you will see from looking at the pictures, you can also get very creative and and make some extravagant pieces or keep it easy.

2. TABLE SETTING

If you are having a dinner party, even if it’s not a sit-down affair, it is important to have your table looking pretty. People are always drawn to the table where food and drinks are located. Particularly if you are having dinner, this is where your main event is happening and taking some extra time to add some glitz and glamour makes your event memorable. For example, buy some fun serviettes or cloth ones, create name tags for seating arrangement and have some fun with the centrepiece like using pearls or ribbons!

While you are out and about doing errands on the day of the party, or perhaps on the day before, grab a fresh bouquet of flowers (doesn’t need to be anything fancy) or even little individual flowers. Placing flowers around your home or on the dinner table just adds something that makes it feel pretty…because what girl doesn’t love flowers!

4. MUSIC

To finish the atmosphere of a party, choosing music helps create a special ambiance that is also important to the success of your party. Be sure to pick just the right kind of music for your particular event. For myself I always think that any classical or instrumental music will fit any party as it provides a great background as well as being enjoyable to listen to! Here is an 8track playlist that I often use for my events. Give it a listen. http://8tracks.com/suzie19/piano-music

5. DESSERT

If anyone knows me then you know that I am a total dessert girl, no matter how much I have eaten I ALWAYS have room for dessert…especially if it’s chocolate! So of course what is a party without dessert! Thank you Julia…
