Sorry, my bad

17 Dec

Hello Glamourites,

My SINCEREST apologies, I’m not sure how it happened put my last semester at school somehow took up all my time! I promise to be more diligent from now on and some new years resolutions will soon be made.

I hope you all have had a wonderful fall season and are looking forward to Christmas. I know I am!!! Here are some of my favourite things to look forward to while I am home for the holidays…

sorry_sleepThe best thing about coming home after a long school semester or working is sleep. Looking forward to having no pounding alarm waking you from your peaceful slumber and being able to roll over and keep sleeping.

sorry_eatingFOOD! As a student I don’t have the biggest budget when I am away to spend on groceries which makes it extremely exciting to come home and see a fridge full of goodies. Plus all the amazing home cooked meals and luxurious holiday meals.

sorry_readingHaving time to actually read for pleasure is pure bliss. Sitting down with a good book and hot chocolate in front of the fire and losing yourself in the story takes all your problems away.

sorry_dressupAs a girl I absolutely love to dress up and Christmas is the best season for pulling out that sparkle dress and getting your heels on! It is a time where everyone has an excuse to throw a party and share the holiday cheer!

sorry_farmily My family always brings a smile to my face whatever mood I may be in and it is amazing to be surrounded by them through the whole holiday season ❤

Summer Inspo

30 Jun

Hello Glamourites!

Yes I know it has been awhile; it seems June got away on me! Things were crazy with it being my sister’s high school graduation which meant lots of parties and family from out of town. Now that things have died down and summer is well upon us, I hope to get back to making regular posts 🙂 For today, here are some pictures and ideas for summer/fashion/food and others that caught my eye. Hope you are all having an amazing start to your week! xx Glamour Planner

Try to new recipes: like these yogurt fruit bars for light summer snack

Make an area where you can relax and take time for yourself or catch a little cat nap!

Make sure you spent as much time as possible outside when the sun is shinning, it’s not summer forever!

Lastly, buy yourself a neon suit! You only live once, so you might as well shine brightly 🙂

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

Refreshing Rose

3 Feb

Hi Glamourites!

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable and easy Monday! Now that February is here I’m all aboard the Pink/Red/Valentine’s theme train. I have been keeping my eyes open for tasty and pretty looking drinks and food for upcoming Valentine’s Day parties or dinners. This is a drink recipe I saw that looks incredibly refreshing and cheery for any day this month. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on alcohol for this one so give it a try and let me know your thoughts  xx Glamour Planner

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

This precious outfit is the perfect causal summer evening hangout for the city or cottage. Simple high waisted denim shorts with a mesh lace top and throw a few bangles on the arm.

The other awesome thing about summer is you can rock as much bright colour possible and it doesn’t matter because it’s SUMMER! Just like these popping tangerine nails make everything much more fun.

For the days on the beach or the sun-lite summer dinner parties a long maxi dress is always the perfect call. This one in particular has the element of surprise with the bear back and the playfulness of the stripes. Definitely want.

What is an outfit without some bling….these turquoise rings are beautifully simple and make a statement all being staked on one hand.

Hello Glamourites,

My name is Ashley and I have started this blog to share my interests and hopefully inspire a few of you out there to try something new ideas I post. My biggest love is planning, I love planning anything: a dinner party, an afternoon tea, a movie night, a “just-because” party, surprise parties, and the list goes on. I also enjoy food, well more than enjoy, I adore food! I take pictures of almost everything I eat and am always trying to scout out the next best recipes, so I will be showing some of my newest food trials as well as ones that I hope to try. Fashion is another one of my passions; I never leave the house in sweatpants and usually change my outfit at least twice before deciding what to wear. And I always trying to find an excuse to go shopping! I will write about some of my latest finds or deals and pieces that I would love to own or be able to afford one day. And finally, I want to share with you my interest for design, so you’ll find me posting decor and architecture that catch my eye. Sometimes just adding a bit of colour  or a new item to a room is all you need to mix things up a little.

Here are some pictures that reflect my style and taste!

Stay glam xx   Glamour Planner
