Six months ago - we moved into our very own studio in Spruce Grove.
But we needed another excuse to party (hehe)
So we moved!!
We are now in a much bigger space on Main Street in Stony Plain.
So...party time!! Again!
And this time - it's going to be a big deal! Read More
Did you know that there's 1440 minutes in ONE day?!
That seems like a heck of a lot of time
yet I always feel like I'm running out of time!
Even during the winter season when I'm 'not busy'... I'm busy!
My 'to do' list is getting longer - even though I am getting things done - bit by bit.
I am so THANKFUL for Abi
She came into my life to assist with weddings - and now she's helping with my TO DO list.
She is saving me!
But can she save me from the grey hairs I seem to be sprouting?? Read More
Sixteen years ago - I bought my very first car - and learnt to drive.
In between lessons - my dad would accompany me in my purple Nissan - so I could practice - and get better.
My dad was always very forthcoming with 'feedback'...
"No - you need to do it this way!"
"Stop riding on your break."
"You are too close" (as he gripped his seat and pressed his foot on the imaginary break!)
I listened - even though I thought my driving was awesome! Read More
Let’s do the ‘try before you buy’ thing!
It’s been a pretty wet summer - so far - but we’ve still had quite a few stinking HOT days!
Days I’d like to call ‘ice-cream' days - where salads and exercise go out of the window (well - sometimes, I WALK to get the ice cream) - and we indulge in a sweet, refreshing treat instead.
And the best thing about going for ice cream cones - is the sampling of every.single.flavour - just to make sure we pick the perfect one (or two) - before committing to an entire scoop!
You may not be able to make up your mind - but as soon as you taste THE one - you just KNOW!
Try before you buy! Read More
Brides - stay tuned - there’s something for you too.
When you receive a wedding invitation in the mail from a dear friend (or relative) - and there’s no gift registry - your head falls into your hands...
What on earth am I going to buy as a wedding gift?!
Keep calm - I have the answers! Read More
Wedding Party gifts to say THANK YOU!
You’ve said your ‘I LOVE YOUs’ with a gift to each other.
Now it’s time to say your ‘Thank Yous’ - to your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen - with wedding party gifts.
The wedding party gifts can be a small gesture of appreciation - or a HUGE thank you - whatever your budget. Read More
At 33 years young (and six days - already!!!), I was expecting to go out for a few drinks with my friends - shopping with hubby - and a ‘family’ dinner with our Canadian family.
I wasn’t expecting prezzies!
Well, maybe from my hubby, hehe!
But not from my friends - my ‘family’ - or even my mommy (because I have told her several times that she really doesn’t have to - but she wants to - and I can’t say no to that).
I have received such beautiful gifts this year - my antique tea set is now complete - I have brand new (bright white) converse - and plenty of nail polish colours to get me through the seasons!
Thank you so much - I LOVE them all! Read More
Why are Engagement Pictures such a good idea?
Most of my lovelies are camera-shy - avoid being the centre of attention - and therefore have probably never had a professional shoot done before.
So - with that in mind - do you really want your wedding day to be the first time that you experience a ‘paparazzi’ ? - that you experience a professional photo shoot.
Especially when you will already have a million and one things to think about Read More
Engagement and Wedding Photo Shoot Locations...
When I'm thinking about photo shoot locations - I often find myself thinking of England -
Thinking of the old cobbled streets that weave through the small village where I lived -
The old stone churches that have stood for centuries in each town -
I reminisce about the weekend walks we would take - rambling over the heather covered Yorkshire moors.
These places were practically on my doorstep - and now I feel like I should have made the most of them. Read More
Engagement Shoot - what should you wear??
Dress to impress in your Engagement Shoot!
I've never been one to ask my girl-friends "what are you wearing for so-and-so?" - I like to pride myself on being different.
Actually, sometimes I would ask - just so I knew what NOT to wear - we don't all need to be wearing a little black dress (or whatever the IN-THING is at the time)
I do LOVE fashion - but I'm usually wearing 'whatever' when its out of fashion!!
And now that I've had years of practice (and girls' nights out) - I feel that I am pretty good at knowing outfit situations...
What will I be expected to wear?? Read More
