Summer date night: Outfit

Thursday, June 30, 2011

I am so happy that it is Thursday of a long weekend! I have been so busy lately and can't wait to have that extra day off. The other day I decided that I would take a 30min. power nap at 6:30PM because I was so exhausted. I managed to sleep all the way through the night until 6:30AM the next morning! I have no idea how I am going to have kids if life is already tiring at 24 years old. Well I hope that everyone has a great weekend and gets lots of rest!

Is it the weekend yet?

Monday, June 27, 2011

It's Monday.
After spending a relaxing weekend at the cottage, coming back to work sucks. At least it's a long weekend for us since Friday is CANADA day! Hooray for long weekends. Now only 4 more days to go. Let the countdown begin.


Wedding Wednesday: Sneak Preview

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

We had our first official wedding appointment last night for a venue. For some reason I was nervous since I had no idea what to expect (my type A personality kicked in), but it turned out great and we absolutely fell in love with the place. Here's a sneak peak at the Venue. I can't wait to make it official! In case you didn't notice, I have dedicated "Wedding Wednesday's" to update you on my wedding plans. Hope you like-y.


Outfit: Got Attitude?

Friday, June 17, 2011

Not only did this rockin' headband and new lipstick make me feel badass, I had major attitude leftover from last night's soccer game. It was a terrible - and let's just leave it at that. I tried some Avon cosmetic's for the first time and I am quite happy with it. I got this new shade of red lipstick that I wanted to try out. I am thinking of doing red lips and nails for my wedding but wanted to see how it would look in pictures. I don't want it to look obnoxious... and I don't want my fiance to have red lipstick all over him from obsessive kissing. Hmmm, Food for thought. To Red or not to Red.

Outfit: Casual

Nothing is better than feeling comfortable! This baseball tee is one of my favourite's for lounging around or running errands. Show a little leg, let down your hair, and throw on some classic kicks.

I am getting my hair cut/dyed tonight! I love having a fresh new hairstyle and colour, somehow it just makes you feel 10x better. Here's a sneak peak at the style I want to get. Longer side swept bangs and lots of layers!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Stayed tuned for my Outfit post on sexy casual, it'll be coming shortly.


Summer '11 Inspiration: Sexy casual

Friday, June 10, 2011

I don't think there could be a more perfect combination of styles. Who doesn't want to be sexy and still dress casually? I love getting dressed up in a great outfit, but I hate being stuffed into a tight mini skirt that makes me feel self-conscious and constantly worrying if my cheeks are sticking out. Not classy ladies! I've seen it and it just ain't pretty. Check out how these sexy ladies pull it off. Have a great weekend!

Hi Friends. It's Thursday! Which means tomorrow is FRIDAY! Yay. 
It's not just any Thursday, it's Awkward & Awesome Thursday.
~ Telling people your very romantic engagement story
~ Sweating so much that your terrible plastic dress pants stick to your butt and thighs
~ Trying to break into my dad's truck through the back window while climbing over piles of stuff, in a McDonald's parking lot. People love to stare. 
~ Running into people at the gym and trying to make conversation while sweat is dripping into your eyes and your heaving like a sandbag

~ Getting engaged to the one I love!
~ Planning a real wedding and not just a pretend one.
~ Weekend plans in the sun with favourite friends and family
~ Seeing my cute parents hold hands on the couch while having their morning coffee

A Pinterest Wedding

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

I am one of those girls that has been dreaming about her wedding for years. I knew I wanted to marry my fiance very early in our relationship, and after waiting many years for the right time to come along, it is finally here! I have been saving pictures and ripping out articles that I like, but sometimes it can all just become a big jumble that is forgotten. Introducing Pinterest! I have been obsessed with Pinterest ever since my sister introduced me to it, and it has been a great place to organize all my ideas. Here are some of my pins, and ideas for the big day. Happy Pinning! You can check out my Boards here.
Since we are looking at a Winter Wedding, I want to create a clean, crisp look that coincides with the season. I love the fresh and simple details of this ceremony.
Since my fiance comes from an East Indian background, I want to try and incorporate ideas from his culture that add a little bit of flavour. I love the traditional Indian wedding attire and I think it would be so beautiful to wear an Indian style veil.
From reading about how to budget properly and spend money on the things you love, I know that photography is one of those things I do not want to be cheap on. I will DIY my butt off if  I have to, in order to put that money towards a fabulous photographer. How gorgeous is this photo?!
After saving many many bouquet ideas, I have come to realize that it all depends on the season. Thankfully I have the best florist in town (my mom), and a great source within the floral wholesale business to help me out. I really love the simplicity of this bouquet but still the uniqueness of each flower.
If you are local (Toronto + GTA) and are in the wedding business, feel free to contact me about your services. I need all the help I can get.


Classic with a twist

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

It was a rainy Saturday so I wore my new trench coat that I got as a gift from my mom from her recent trip to Holland. It is the perfect staple to add to my wardrobe that can be mixed and matched so many ways. I thought I'd throw on the leopard print scarf to create a little bit of visual interest to a classic outfit. I was just wearing a plain black top with jeans and flats, but by adding the jacket and scarf you can get a simple look that's perfect for a rainy day.
