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.

Sweater Season

5 Nov

Sweater season is more than upon us now as winter has slowly creeped into our lives. The only things I look forward too in this cold blizzard season is, sweaters, hot chocolate and CHRISTMAS. But lets just focus on one of those topics today. The amount of sweaters to choose from is in the thousands of thousands, it can be just a tad overwhelming. Here are some of my favourite picks so far xx Glamour Planner

The classic knit sweater that is a forever staple in anyone’s wardrobe that works in all outfits. sweaterwinterPop a little colour into your style with this beautiful maroon oversized sweater. Comfy, stylish and warm, not much else you can ask for!

Pumpkin Season

9 Oct

Hello Galmourites,

Now almost being the middle of October we know that pumpkin time is just around the corner….aka HALLOWEEN. Okay so I have to admit I’m actually not a huge Halloween fan but I LOVE Christmas and I know that once Halloween has past we are very close to the winter holidays! None-the-less I still enjoy the festivities such as pumpkin carving. Every year I want to try a new innovative design but always go back to the classic knife cutting technique. Here are some examples of pumpkin designs you can try out this year using different materials. xx Glamour Planner

This is a great use for all those spare buttons your collect over the year. Glue them to the pumpkin to make a word or design.  pumpkinbuttons

Painting your pumpkin is fun as you can create your own theme with what colours you use or patterns. pumpkinblackandwhite

This is one idea I do want to try this year, take any type of patterned lace or pantyhose and wrap the pumpkin. pumpkinlace

For last minute pumpkin decorating take metallic decals or stickers and place on the pumpkin.

If you are displaying several pumpkins, place mini lights or candles inside to line your walkway or porch for a pretty effect.

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

Neon Lettuce

27 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

Now that (unfortunately) summer is coming to the end, it’s time to start eating healthy again. It’s always too easy during the summer months to get off track with good eating habits as we’re busy enjoying those BBQs, margaritas, ice cream & parties. Here is a refreshing and unique salad recipe to work your way back to healthy eating; don’t forget to use fresh blackberries which are in season now. Credit to A House in the Hills blog for the recipe! xx Glamour Planner

INGREDIENTS:

3 1/2 cups micro arugula

1 cup blackberries (ripe and sweet!)

2 tablespoons pine nuts

1 ear red corn, cut off the cob

1/2 bunch white asparagus

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 clove of garlic, pressed

2 tablespoons chopped caper berries (stems removed)

1 1/2 tablespoons of mint, finely chopped

sea salt

black pepper

METHOD:

– Rinse and dry microgreens.  Set aside.

– In a small mixing bowl combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, mint, garlic, chopped caper berries and a pinch of salt.  Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.

– Trim ends off of asparagus (I trimmed a good 1 1/2- 2 inches off of mine to get to the softest part).  Lightly coat spears with olive oil and cook on medium heat over a grill pan or on your grill until seared to your preference. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and pepper.  Cut into 1/2 inch pieces.

– Assemble the salad by combining microgreens, corn, asparagus, blackberries and pine nuts in a large bowl.  Add salad dressing (recipe makes enough for some leftovers, depending on preference).  Toss well and serve immediately!

Not over yet

25 Aug

No, I refuse to believe that summer is over yet, because it’s NOT! Summer is my favourite season; I try and enjoy it to the fullest and for as long as possible. I love those long beach days relaxing under the hot sun and perfecting a tan; those days whenit stays light out until 10pm. These pictures capture what I feel summer is along with the fun it brings. Hope you all are enjoying these months and getting some adventures out in the sun xx Glamour Planner

Good Morning Glamourites!

I must apologize about the delay in posting the last little while but life has gotten a little busy as it sometimes does. That’s just the way summer is!  It is also one of my favourite times of the year and that is why I like to experiment and be more daring in my fashion choices.  It somehow feels like it is appropriate to be wearing BRIGHT and exciting clothing! Here are some of my BOLD fashion inspiration pictures that will hopefully push you to try something new this season. xx Glamour Planner

This is screaming BEACH FUN. Colour, colour, colour, never too much I say!
Bold|hatSo why not go all out with bangles? And bright clutch? And those stunner heels!

MINT

4 Jun

Hello Glamorites,

I wanted to share with you my favourite colour right now…I’m seeing it in fashion, products and design! Here are some pictures I have seen over the last little while of incorporating the colour mint into the home. Let me know what your fave colour of the season is right now and hope this cool mint inspiration gives you ideas!

The accent of this desk in a simple neutral office is a great way to add some warmth and character to a space.

Having one wall or a specific part in pop of colour can completely change the room.
