Oscars 2015 Red Carpet

23 Feb

Morning Glamourites,

Last night was the 87th Academy Awards where many actors and movies were recognized for their hard work and success. Some of the winners included, Birdman for Best Picture, Julianna Moore for Best Actress in Still Alice, Eddie Redmayne for Best Actor in The Theory of Everything, J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor in Whiplash and John Legend and Common won Best Original Song for “Glory” from Selma. Besides all the golden Oscar awards that were given out, there were countless stunning gowns on the red carpet, which is really what we what to know all about! There were many dresses in bold statement colours such as Rosamund Pike in a Givenchy red gown and Scarlett Johnansson in an emerald Versace dress. Both were popular colours of the evening but not THE trend of the night; this, however, was light shades, from pure white to bronze nude tones. I put together a collection of my picks from last night for you to browse and enjoy xx Glamour Planner

Emma Stone wasn’t exactly in white but looked absolutely stunning in an Elie Saab chartreuse shade dress which could be the most talked about fashion piece last night.

Reese Witherspoon in a custom Tom Ford dress – hugs her body perfectly!

Oh J-Lo, always giving us something to talk about…and last night was no exception for her fashion choice. Her Elie Saab sparkly nude dress with a plunging neckline probably had more material then all the other dresses combined, it proved to be a challenge walking off stage but she pulled it off.

Had to share a funny picture with you all from last night of tight embrace between Emma and Jennifer Aniston who was wearing Atelier Versace.

Grammys // 2015

8 Feb

Hello Glamourites,

If you didn’t watch the 57th annual Grammy Awards tonight, (or want a recap) I have for you the best dressed, worst dressed, trending colours and makeup looks for you! There are many stars who attend this evening and it is hard to pick out a select few from all the gorgeous gowns and suits! Take note, I would have included many more if I wanted to make this post similar to a novel.

xx Glamour Planner

BEST

I am coming from a very non-basis corner as I am not one of the screaming T-swift fans, however I fell immediately in love with her dress choice tonight! Her teal gown designed by Elie Saab was both sophisticated, edgy and classic with the window front showing off her legs and Giuseppe Zanotti fuchsia heels. The matching Lorraine Schwartz earrings in an aqua shade made her blue eyes jump out!

Katy ALWAYS puts her own twist into every look and this one is no different. I am happy that she didn’t go for the complete shock factor but still stood out with a semi-nude dress with glitter fringes, saying she “just wanted to shine bright like a diamond” jokingly to Ryan Seacrest. Adding to this she had statement chandelier earrings and her beautiful lavender hair.Grammys3

Ciara is typically not on my radar but tonight she most certainly was. She wore a one-shoulder ruffled gown by Alexandre Vauthier made with sheer black material creating a draping train.  Grammys

Chrissy Teigen looked stunning in a fitted Gucci gown with subtle cutouts from top to bottom. She a definition of a fashionista! Grammys7

MAKEUP

Trending makeup this year at the Grammys generally was very understated in natural style, which I appreciated and found much more beautiful than being caked in products.

Beyonce showcases this beauty look perfectly, as Queen B only would. She looked fresh, bright and truly like a natural goddess! She was dressed in a custom black Proenza Schouler gown. Grammys5

Gwen also followed this trend with a clean face, simple tinted lip gloss to allow her dramatic jumpsuit by Atelier Versace to be the focus.

TRY AGAIN

Rihanna, I’m sorry, I respect your style but unfortunately this dress I cannot deal with. ri

Iggy you were on point with your Armani Privé dress in the popular blue tonight but the hair needs something different. This just reminds me of a birds nest. Grammys6

COLOURS

To finish up it’s Pharrell in Adidas who is following with the influencing colours of the night including black, blue shades and white. To mention a few in black gowns this year was, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Meghan Trainor, Jessie J, Kelly Osbourne and many others.  Grammys8

Hit the trail

8 Jul

Hi Glamourites,

My gourmet cookie stand has continued to grow and I think people have started to hear about it through word of mouth. I’ve started to realize a bit what it might be to baker and have a store. I have also experimented on recipes beyond cookies to see what else people may be interested on the trail. I have named them the Lochside Trail bar as that is the section of the trail we are located on. They are made with oats, organic raisins, almonds, chia seeds, hemp hearts and honey and taste pretty delicious to me! If anyone has sampled them you can let me know your feedback or any other suggestions! Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer weather. xx Glamour Planner

V Day Countdown

31 Jan

Hello Glamourites,

I can’t believe it’s the last day of January today! It feels like just last week we were celebrating the Christmas holidays and only yesterday that school started. Before you know it Valentine’s Day will be here! Which means now is the time to start planning and sending out invitations for your V-day Party. Valentine’s Day is one of my favourite “holidays” – besides showing your family, friends and loved ones how much you care about them, you have an excuse to eat chocolate all day! Anytime I am able to have a themed dinner or party I jump on it. Make it fun and add some special décor; people get that much more excited when they see the effort you’ve put into creating a special ambiance. Hope you get some inspiration for your Valentines plans xx Glamour Planner

When setting your table it doesn’t have to be anything difficult; it can be as simple as putting some streamers down as shown below. vdaypartytable2Glitter up your beverage station with putting some sparkles on your champagne bottles.

Easy decorations to add some festive love around you house, cut out hearts from paper or fabric and attach to red string and hang around! vdaypartydecor

Cute signs for your food and treats add to the visual display.

If dinner isn’t your thing than a simpler option is hosting a brunch. Breakfast items are much easier to prepare or simply buy them from the store. These adorable little yogurt parfaits are very easy and look festive! vdaypartyparfaits

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

Sweets & Studs

18 Aug

Good Morning Glamourites,

Been a busy last few days as summer is starting to wind down and my friends are starting to leave again for the next school year. Still can’t get my head around the fact it’s already the middle of August….okay let’s not think about that now! Macarons, the little couple bites of dessert you sometimes need to satisfy your sweet tooth. I have yet to try and make any type of macarons myself but it is my mission before the summer is over to give it a shot. The recipe credit goes to La Gallette blog where they have many tasty looking recipes. Let me know if you have given the macaron attempt a whirl xx Glamour Planner

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.

Do you Ombre?

12 Jul

Hello my Glamourites!

My obsession with ombre started last fall when I decided I wanted to try something new and different with my hair so I tried the dark to blonde ombre. I loved it too – it was fun and I found I could do many styles with it to transform my look. Naturally I am now drawn to ombre inspiration detailing or themes which leads me to this party idea of ombre! It’s more unique then just picking a colour or two to stick with but using one and playing on the different shades and adding more dimension. Hope you enjoy these pictures and maybe give you some guidance for your next party.

xx Glamour Planner

How easy would this be, grab 3 or 4 different shades of balloons and place them in a fading order around the party. Adds a new element to just boring balloons.

Here is a much simpler ombre cake version that you could even make at home yourself if you didn’t want to spend a ton of extra money.ombrecake

Of course you always have to have a party dress that fits the occasion! This gown is stunning with the fitted top and ruffling down into lighter shades.
