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.

Wedding Watch

Hello Glamourites,

My girly guilty pleasure has come out again in looking at wedding inspiration pictures and trends and looking at what is upcoming for the season. I am going to be sharing with you the 2014 colour trends by Vera Wang! Along with each colour palette I have chosen various aspects and unique pieces you can easily find or make for your wedding. Check out the arrangements below and let me know if you have a favourite xx Glamour Planner

1. Regal Metallics

Gold and silver are perfectly sparkly and are making a statement this year in the design world. As for weddings this colour palette works extremely well for chair covers, table decor and much more! WTrendsinvitations2

2. Pale Pink

Any shade of pink works in your wedding and will always be a classic colour trend. Depending on the combination it can be made sweet and girly, fun and colourful or whichever style you’re heading in.

This colour may be for the more modern colour as it is fashion-forward! It adds an element of surprise and feeling of fresh to all your guests in the accessories and decor.

Has Spring Sprung Yet?

11 Mar

Hello Glamourites,

Clearly I have been MIA the past month…probably wallowing in my winter depression! In my opinion, it stayed WAY over its welcome; it’s March already mr. weather. On that note, I have obviously been looking  into spring trends and outfit inspirations to keep me calm. Check out the pictures below for the Spring 2014 trend insights taken from the Paris runway during Fashion Week. Hope everyone is having a great week xx Glamour Planner

The wide-leg pant is back! They are easy to wear and ultra-chic; billowy wide-leg trousers are making a come back on  the spring runways and streets.Springwideleg

All heights can wear these pants, not just the 6 foot models. If you are shorter look for slimmer on the flare and appropriate high waisted length. Springwideleg2

Contrast collar button downs are the new essential. Inspired by men’s dress shirt bringing in contrasting colours, textures or patterns, it’s a simple way to spice up your work outfit.  Springbuttondown

How adorable are the Tea-length skirts, somewhere between the length of maxi and midi (just below the knee). This length works perfect for any spring afternoon!

The ladylike hemline can be as modern as the midi depending what you pair it with, could be a cropped top which will accentuate your height!

The last inspiration for today is the introduction of the tuxedo trouser with a mix of the athletic pant making this sporty and comfy but still looking smart and sophisticated. Also try a streamlined silhouette in a unexpected white or reverse tuxedo.

The Date

26 Sep

Hi Glamourites,

My apologies for not posting lately at all, I have been sick in bed for the the past three days and barely able to much of anything. As you know one of my passions is wedding planning and am always on the lookout for the latest trend or unique way of doing it your special way. Here are some examples of “Save The Date” cards that are a little different than the norm. Enjoy xx Glamour Planner

For a city couple or big city wedding this would be a neat perspective! SaveTheDatecab

I can’t resist how cute this balloon idea is, may be a little cheesy but very creative!    SaveTheDateballoons

My love for shoes adores this card inspiration. SaveTheDateHeels

Make it Unique

11 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

It has been a busy, busy week as I have been volunteering at a kid’s camp – lots of fun but very tiring. I am home now and ready to get back to writing some posts! I know people are always trying to come up with the next big trend or most unique aspect to their wedding. Here are some creative ideas (I thought) that are a little out of the norm and are fairly easy as well. Tell me your latest wedding inspiration xx Glamour Planner

Well first of all, this little boy is adorable, and how easy would it be make this heart-shaped chalkboard sign and write a simple phrase like this. Too cute to handle.
MakeitUnique|signFor guests or wedding party gifts you can create a little book that flips through a 10-30 second video clip from the wedding. You can get this done at many wedsites such as http://www.flipclips.com/
MakeitUnique|bookI couldn’t resist posting this dress train as the detailing, the buttons and the pattern of the lace is just gorgeous and one-of-a-kind.
MakeitUnique|dresstrainWe girls know how much we love our shoes so why not make them the focus of some of the pictures? This adds for a touch of mystery in the photo and also allows you to show off your great heels.
