Thought blue nails were appropriate.

Beauty Inspiration For Today.....

Candice Swanepoels Summer Dress
Worn at: VS Fantasies Body Care and Fragrance Launch

I'm crazy about Candice's summer dress. This would be the perfect dress for a romantic date on a beautiful summer evening.

The dress is Balenciaga.

Girly. Classic. Romantic.

Peachy Dreams

One of my favourite nail trends for this summer is PEACH! Dark peach, light peach, pinky peach, reddy peach. Whatever the peach may be I'm alllllll about it! Here are two of my favourites I've been wearing lately.

Essie in "Haute As Hello"

Sally Hansen in "Peachy Breeze"

Monday Night = Ladies Night

Thanks to The Bachelorette, Monday nights have turned into a weekly Girls Night.
Sure, The Bachelorette is cheesy and overdone and filled with alot of useless drama but sometimes it's fun to have a guilty pleasure to laugh at with your girlfriends.... and there's nothing I love more then shutting my brain off on a Monday night.
Last night was no exception and started with Mani/Pedi's at Nail Station. $40 for a mani/pedi in Toronto really can't be beat (which includes exfoliating and massage). The hardest part is narrowing down which nail polish to pick when your choosing between a copious selection of Essie, OPI, China Glaze and CND, which is no easy feat.
I decided on CND in "Tropic Coral" for my finger nails and Essie in "Smooth Sailing" for my toesies.
After nails it was time for Frozen Yogurt and then 2 hours of The Bachelorette.
This week was home town dates which is always full of fun awkwardness. My top pick was Constantine and his cute Greek family with the Italian restaurant. But, seems like Ashley doesn't have the best taste in men and is too busy being smitten with JP to really notice anyone else. What is with that girl and liking emotionally unstable guys? First Bently and now JP who, along with his family WOULDN'T stop talking about his ex girlfriend and how she hurt him. Doesn't seem like he's ready for an engagement.
Until next week Girls!

Beauty Inspiration For Today.....

Emma Stone's messy pony-tail
Worn at: The premiere of her new movie Crazy Stupid Love.
Big props for making pink and red actually look good together!
I'm excited for this one to come out. Looks really cute. Could you ever go wrong with a cast that features Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Emma stone and Julianne Moore? I think not.

One Day

Currently reading One Day, as it was recommended to me by a variety of different people over the last couple of months.
Turns out it's being turned into a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess... pan to me in the movie theatre when the preview for the movie comes on and me, just having started the book, quickly screaming "NOOOO" as I cover my ears and close my eyes. Tragic! The book is great so far and I would recommend it as well. Curious to see how the movie holds up. This is a book you find yourself laughing out loud while reading, being interested to find out what happens next, and wanting to cry with the characters. A great summer read.

Hair Crush - At it again!

How pretty is Blake Lively? She really can do no wrong on the red carpet. Perfect Example: Here she is in a STUNNING Marchesa gown at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Gala.

Hair crush sported this beautiful low braided updo. She has been doing amazing things with braids lately.... and as I had predicted she was making her way back to blonde after going temporarily red.

A Black and White Affair

My big sister got married a few weekends ago. After a year and half of waiting and planning the day had finally come. It didn't really sink in, as these things normally don't, until the day of.
The day before the wedding it was calling for rain and severe thunder storms. I had mentally braced myself for a day of crappy weather.
Well, we didn't see one rain drop the entire day and just as they were saying their vows the sun came out. It was gorgeous the entire day!! We were so lucky!
The day couldn't have gone better starting with girl time at the salon getting hair and makeup done, then the excitement of the flowers arriving, the excitement of getting dressed, the photographers arriving and the pictures.
My neighbours lined the streets as we hopped into the limo. The limo ride there was fun with the flowers girls dancing the whole way there.

We arrive at Glen Abbey golf course for a beautiful rooftop ceremony - overlooking the gorgeous golf course - and all of a sudden the tears start to flow.
Wedding ceremonies are just so ....... romantic. The vows, the words said to eachother, the rings. It's all just so Beautiful!!
My sister decided on a black and white theme for the wedding and I love the idea.

I made it through my maid of honour speech, even through all the tears....
My sister looked so gorgeous. She couldn't have picked a more perfect dress. My sister and (now) husband surprised everyone with some ballroom dance moves from the classes they secretly took.

My little cousins Joshua and Abigail were the cutest little flower girl and ring bearer I've ever seen.

The bf wore his new Hugo Boss suit. No complaints here :)
