April Love

March was a whirlwind!  We didn't even get a chance to post our "March Loves"!  We are now catching up and are looking forward to Spring!  Although... you wouldn't think it was anywhere near close with what I'm seeing outside the windows today!

Anyhow - positive thoughts!  Spring will be here soon enough :)

SCARVES & GLOVES – I’m proud to say these two things…. are my weakness!!!  (shhh…. they also take up quite a bit of closet space!)  If you were to take a look at my lovely collection, you would be inclined to ask… have you actually worn every single one????  My answer – close to it!!!  They make me feel good … so why not!

APPLE CRUMBLE PIE – Ever since I can remember, apple pie has been my comfort food of choice.  My “go-to”, my “oh my goodness, this is so good with a scoop of ice cream” sweet tooth craving.  What is your go-to, feel-good dessert creation?

DISNEY MOVIES – As soon as I had our first daughter, I knew that my future would be filled with endless Disney movies… and I couldn’t be happierJ  I still love them to this day!  My daughters are teenagers now but our love for the classic and new Disney films is never-ending.  You should ask me what we did when the Beauty & the Beast live action movie was released…. We were hardcore!!!

COZY PLACES – Comfort, relaxation, peace.  Three words that everyone should make time for in their busy lives. So very important to reconnect with yourself….to recharge.  Pick up a book, watch a movie, listen to some music in your favorite nook.  You will walk away feeling more relaxed and will be a better person for it. 

KNITTING – One past time I learned (by no means am I an expert!), while pregnant with my first child, was knitting. I wanted to give something to my daughter that would be her comfort as she grew up.  Something that she could look back on and think about her childhood.  Hopefully it will be a piece of her past she can pass on her to own child one day!

~ Style Wednesdays ~ Perfect Nails!

So you are planning everything from your dress, shoes, accessories to hair & make-up..... but what about your nails?  As a bride you want to look beautiful and feel special so why not complete your look with a little nail art.  Be a little adventurous!   We've seen some "adventurous" out there already!  There are designs that are simple and elegant, to patterns, colours and adornments. Find what speaks to you!

Today is all about the visuals!  Enjoy the nail art!



Remember if you are getting nail extensions, they take some getting use to so get them put on in advance and have them re-touched before the wedding.  Think ahead and match your toes and finger nails to make sure they stay in tip-top condition right to the end of your honeymoon.

Last but not least your bridemaids’ nails should complement yours and not overpower your design, keep their artwork simple.  Perfect-nail-harmony! 



Now for some bolder colour!


Our personal faves.....


Hope you enjoyed today's fun inspiration!
