Don’t go in ‘asking for a naked cake’ or your baker might think you are asking for something suggestive! I learned my lesson when I went into one of my favourite bakeries and decided to strike a conversation with the bake shop owner! At first I told him I’m interested in naked cakes and enquired if they make them for weddings. Well the bake shop owner proceeded to tell me that naked cakes are ‘offensive’, and it’s a family oriented business. I thought he meant they were plain, and not very elegant and that’s why they were offensive- but later I realized he thought I was adamant on ordering a penis cake. Funny moments when you have a conversation with someone and you both are thinking of two very different things! Thanks a lot Cake Boss for teaching me this term ‘Naked Cakes’, and actually using it thinking it’s what everyone knows them for!
Hey Lovelies! Currently I’m swooning over all of the wedding dresses from the designer Monique Lhuillier. I’ve watched countless episodes of ‘Say Yes To The Dress’, Four Weddings (American and Canadian versions) Beverly Hills Bridal shows, etc etc, and I’ve seen so many dresses from different designers that I know this will be a hard decision in the end. It will never be a question of which dress is better, but of how I will be able to walk away with just one dress when there’s so many beautiful styles floating around. I know that I’m sick of Pnina Tournai, and even Lazzaro thanks to Say Yes To The Dress’s over-exposure..it’s comparable to the Anne Hatheway effect that made some dislike the actress for just being on their television screens a little too often.
Hello Lovelies!! As some of you have seen in an earlier post– I’m engaged! And well I’ve already started the wedding planning process. I decided to begin the entire process with buying a Wedding planner and organizer from Chapters, I opted for the one by Carley Roney and the editors of TheKnot.com. I think it lured me in over the others with it’s pretty minty-blue colour! I love that having your own Wedding planner and organizer allows you to keep track of everything, including budget, to inspiration, guest lists, food and venues etc and you can always add your own comments and info and to do lists- but at least it will all be in one place, neatly condensed for your convenience. It’s also perfect to take with you on the go say if you were to walk the site of a Venue you were interested in! I love this little organizer so much! (I already began to fill it’s pages with inspiration and things I want/ do not want LOL).
Hey everyone! Recently I attended the 39th annual Vancouver Wedding Fair (January 9th, 2016), held at the Westin Bayshore hotel in Coal Harbour. It wasn’t a boring experience I enjoyed it, and even I walked away with some inspiration. I know some of you might be curious to know what a wedding fair event might be like! So in this post I have photos, tips, information, wedding trends for 2016, and all that good stuff to help you decide if this is an event you should pencil in on your calendar!
Privet everyone! Last weekend was my cousin’s bridal shower, and I managed to wake up at 6am to get ready, which included the routine of putting in my extensions, putting on a full face of makeup, and bringing out the Valentinos. In my attempt to sheer a few extra minutes off getting ready in the morning I decided to curl my extensions with a hot roller set the previous night (Every minute counts in the morning!!). I then left to get to the venue which was held at a local golf course- and luckily I made it on time! I took quite a few photos, some I’m going to share here just in case some bride to be’s are looking for some inspiration for their own bridal shower. I also must say that my aunt did an amazing job at pulling off the special occasion, the venue and food served for the brunch portion was incredible. Of course all of the women who attended brought a mountain of delectable desserts, including some traditional Italian cookies. I loaded …
At times I find Alexandra Serova to be one of those elusive fashion designers; Photo’s of her collections are harder to find than say Alexander Terekhov’s, or Valentin Yudashkin’s..and when she posts on instagram the pictures are teasers (& not always the best quality). And yet, when you finally get a glimpse into this designers creative world-
