it is supposed to be lovely this weekend, and i have a full one including a trip to the wharf for fish and chips with my gf who just returned from paris (with not one but two items from chanel i cannot wait to meet! funny, the first time she went, they were sold out of the entire store by 1pm… insane). on top of that, i’m consulting with a sparkle beauty styling client and auditing her beauty routine. thrilled about it!
congrats to glitter guide on their 2 year anniversary! how much do you love that site? i’m thrilled to be a part of the beauty editing team and they continue to inspire me. oh, and i shared my grade 12 grad photo (from 1999!) over on glitter guide this week… let’s just say i can’t believe i’m old enough to cringe at my style back then.
enjoy your weekend! x

happy weekend! this one is shaping up to be quite a social one full of birthday parties, a wedding shower (excited for you, theresa!), and meeting our friends new baby for the first time. between all of that, a farmers market trip must happen… and of course, deadlines and errands – as i’m writing this, i’m realizing how jam packed things are.

another week is behind us, and i’m dedicating this weekend to really getting my life in order. i am totally unproductive when things are disorganized, so i need to prioritize the mundane. this includes thrilling tasks like washing the windows, getting rid of clutter, cleaning the car and (the fun part), fine tuning some details for my new business. speaking of which, i’m working with my first client this weekend, and stay tuned, because on saturday june 1st i’ll be making the big announcement on the right here! i hope you’ll join me here on the big day and show your support – it means the world (if you’re following me on twitter, you’ve seen a bit of a buzz about it…). exciting!

this week has been just as insane as last week! starting a new business is, to say the least, a major time suck. that being said, i completely get the meaning of the saying “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” on a whole new level now. it’s work, but it’s beyond fun. on june 1st i’m launching the business right here on the blog, and i’m excited to share with you what i’m working on.
this weekend we’ll plant our pots (with succulents i bought two weeks ago that have literally been sitting on my kitchen table ever since… good thing we don’t use it much) and will meet friends for burgers on saturday night. i hope your weekend is full of doing the things you love most! x
