Put it up

6 Mar

Hello Glamourites,

It’s friday! That means you have no reason to not be happy today, okay unless you work weekends, but I still hope you all have some fun things planned. During the winter season I find I get really bored with my hair and it’s gets hard to style because as soon as I get outside it’s wrecked from the snow or my toque. I’ve tried new ways of putting my hair up in a ponytail or braid and adding my own twist on the look. Here are some inspiration pictures I’ve used and some new ones I will be attempting to try. Let me know what your “go to” hair do is!

Add some drama to the ordinary pony by teasing the hair like crazy!throwitup

This is a half fishtail braid which is quick to do and leaves some hair hanging if you don’t want it all up.

The classic ponytail with a statement accessory; I still need to find something like this!

Start with a side braid bringing it to the back and into a loose bun for a casual errand day.

Don’t think you have to pull out the straightener and blow dryer to prep for your early meeting; put your hair in a low bun that still looks professional.

The Climb

12 Aug

Good morning Glamourites,

It’s easy to become accustomed to the everyday things in life and soon we stop noticing their beauty. A good example of this would be stairs; a necessary object that helps us in most day to day activities to get to places. Here are some fabulous staircases that I think deserve to have some sincere recognition. Notice the detailing and thought behind the creation of these amazing stairs.

The ever-so-classical spiral staircase; always so enchanting to look up and see the winding stairs.

THE outfit

15 Jul

Hello Glamourites,

After all this time I can’t believe I have yet to do a post on Weddings! So here it is, my first post related to my ultimate dream job -wedding planner. I thought to myself today what is more important than the bride’s wardrobe and how she looks on her wedding day….well nothing! This is dedicated to everything the bride  is wearing as well as her accessories. Enjoy xx

THE DRESS ~nothing can top this so we’ll start there..

This glam show-stopping gown is fit for a fairy queen. The intricate gems and beading on the bodice draws the eye upwards towards the bride’s face as well as creating a sleek cinched in waistline. The ballgown skirt makes this every girl’s dream dress.

When walking down the aisle, this dress makes a real statement after you have passed them on your way to the altar. A ruffled train, almost mimicking the look of large rose petals, creates the ultimate drama!

The DRAMA

3 Jul

Hello Glamourites!

I hope you all had an easy “hump day” Wednesday and excited for the downhill slide to the weekend! (I know I am) Yesterday I saw some very stunning and dramatic design photo’s and concepts. I think adding drama to a room or space is always a great aspect but having it throughout an entire house has to done in the right way or particular layout. These design choices I fell in love with and would love to incorporate them in my own place! Enjoy xx

This central hallway or lobby is UNBELIEVABLE, the combination of the vaulted ceiling, chandelier and continuing with the large window down to the floor detailing makes it.

The villa below, which is located in Lazio, Italy is amazing because of the balance and and central detailing making the initial visual that much more dramatic and eye catching.

The Unitarian Church located in Charleston, SC has such intricate ceiling detailing and along with the all white makes this 100% drama for the eyes!
