DIY Embellished Sunglasses

Since summer offers so many opportunities for a little extra accessorizing and indulging in fancy cocktails, Breeyn and I have decided to tackle a few of the DIY projects and recipes that have been accumulating on our to-do lists recently. Not only does it give us an excuse to hang out and create pretty things, but we also end up with something that we get to enjoy afterwards, and nothing quite beats the feeling of "I made this!". We're talking serious bragging rights and lots of compliments.

Love Notes // Vol. 23

1 // I’m not sure if it’s the delicate lace, the hint of sparkle, or the mermaid worthy styling of this dress from the Chanel spring 2014 couture collection, but it’s been infiltrating my inspiration boards for awhile now, first as I was working on the Studio B rebrand, and now as I plan my wedding.

You never know.

Giggly Rose Cocktail

Besides the fact that this cocktail combines a few of my favourite ingredients, I must admit that it's really the name that I love the most: Giggly Rose Cocktail.  With both gin and champagne, it's not only a perfectly pretty cocktail that's fit to accompany any party dress, but also a slightly deadly one that'll be sure to get you in your dancing shoes and kissing that handsome stranger by midnight.

DIY Lace Crown

I'll admit it - Halloween doesn't hold quite the charm for me that it used to. Similarly to New Years Eve, I tend to get more excited about the prospect of dressing up and dreaming up new projects and shoots for the holiday than I do about actually going out and celebrating. But that being said, I've often found myself with a need for an on-the-fly costume at the last minute, so I'm a firm believer in always having a few options on hand, which is where this idea for a DIY lace crown came from.

Love Notes // Vol. 3

01 // One of my favourite bloggers, Victoria of SFGIRLBYBAY curated three mini collections with Deny Designs that represent her dream gallery walls: LA Living, Beachy Boudoir, and Graphic Cool. Needless to say, I'm pretty into all of them. I've started putting my wish lists together, filled with art prints and pillows, and the styling for each room has quickly made it to the top of my decor inspiration.
