It's the thought that counts!

We are big believers in thoughtful gestures. A simple hello to a stranger as you walk down the street, offering your seat to someone on the bus or a simple thank you card in the mail (yes I meant snail mail! … who doesn’t like getting something in their mailbox!). There are so many ways to express gratitude or kindness and really when you think about it.. it’s infectious. The end result is that you have made someone else other than yourself feel appreciated. Nothing wrong with that! Here are some ideas on how you can brighten someone else’s day!

For the tea and coffee lovers… why not pick up a mug with some inspirational messages! We would grab these up in a heartbeat! Inspire your day!! Available at Indigo, click this link to shop!

Many more to choose from as well :)

For the budding writer that just can’t put down their pen! Amazing ideas can happen at any time so why not help that creativity flourish! We just love journals with inspiring messages on the cover. Even just a beautiful image is enough to put us in a creative mood! Check out some of our faves at Indigo. It is SO HARD to not pick these up and head for the check out :) …. LOL can you tell we love purple!

Another one of our FAVE items for expressing gratitude is Candles!!! The right scent can just comfort your soul like nothing else! We just picked up (for ourselves) a couple of treats from the amazing Bath & Body Works.

So much goodness in this store - we love it!!! We especially love the 3 wick candles that just fill any room with warmth! There are a LOT of gift sets and stocking stuffers for the holiday season now available as well.

Here are our favourites!

No matter how you decide to show your gratitude, be sure to take the time to make it personal. That part alone, makes it that much more special!

Happy shopping Lovelies!!

March 2014 ~ Spring is "officially" here!

We're all about optimism and putting positive energy, thoughts and vibes out into the universe.  Ask anyone! 

Many of you may agree that with Old Man Winter lingering around a little too long, it gets a bit difficult to see the light of Spring at the end of the tunnel! 

Well we can definitely feel Spring "in the air" and we absolutely LOVE it!!     Can't wait to see this beautiful peony in my front yard! 

 For us this new season brings a renewed sense of drive.  It's hard keeping motivated during the winter months when all you want to do is get comfortable with a blanket and a hot cup of tea! Well now that we have seen some glimpses of spring... we are raring to tackle anything!

With that being said...we have a new addition to the Style & Elegance family!!!!  

Meeting up for coffee one evening, we immediately hit it off - love when that happens!  

Please welcome our wonderful intern Charlotte!!!!  

We are soooo looking forward to working with her this year.  Her enthusiasm is evident after just one meeting!  

Just like us... she is a lover of all things wedding:)  Can't go wrong there!

Lots in store for this team for 2014 and 2015!  

Welcome to the team Charlotte!


We know we're a little behind on our March goals but it's been CRAZY in our world!!  We are on track for our goal to live a healthier life though!  Including these two delicious items to our daily routine has made an amazing difference in the energy level we have - AWESOME!  

Reading up on the benefits of having water with lemon and grapefruit "bowls" inspired us to go for it!  We recommend you try it!  Read more at the above link.


Focusing to look at the positive everyday... here are a few words that inspire us.  Remember, each day is a new one - take advantage of it!


Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
