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.

Simple yet Striking

6 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

Sometimes we look over the smaller or less noticeable things around us and never think what they could be turned into. By pairing simple and bold objects or design together you get a beautiful outcome. Like having black and white together, completely opposite but work perfectly and compliment each other. Here are some situations where a space may have been plain but brought to life with some drama. Hope to enjoy the inspiration xx Glamour Planner

A regular white couch is fine, nothing exciting…add an oversize art piece behind, bam!

SS4This room may have been a tad average but once adding the full height door windows adds a sense of theatric. SS5I love the contrast here between the rough old brick wall and natural floor against the floral colourful bed ensemble.

SS2White on white? Add the detailed headboard and you really have a statement made.

SS3The bold colours and textures used in this bedroom with the clean and straight structure lines make a large impact.

Refreshing Rose

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

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

Knock Knock

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.

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!

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.
