That Hump Day Treat

11 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

Seeing as it is hump day it seems only right to bake yourself up a little something yummy with chocolate! This recipe I found through a blog called Just A Taste , which they have many delicious food inspiration and a helpful search index. Pecans are probably one of my favourite nuts and they work so perfectly in many baking recipes such as this, but also in cookies, granola and salads. This recipe in particular doesn’t require many crazy ingredients and is fast to prepare making it an easy dish to whip up last minute for guests. I hope you all are having a fabulous week and this only makes it sweeter xx Glamour Planner

Hello Glamourites,

Since August has hit I have realized I haven’t been totally watching how “healthy” I have been eating. It is just TOO tempting to eat all these yummy, greasy, sweet and juicy foods that aren’t necessarily good for you, unfortunately. Obviously my will power hasn’t been strong enough and hey, it’s summer, why not enjoy the delicious things in life! If you are wanting to have something that is tasty but will make you feel better about what you are eating try this smoothie. It is packed with nutritious ingredients and is very refreshing for the hot summer days.  Let me know what you think…and of course the shoe pick as well! xx Glamour Planner

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.

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.
