Gem & Crystal Themed Baby Shower

Carousel STYLED PARTIES
Gemstone Cake for our Little Gem Baby Shower
Comments Off on Gem & Crystal Themed Baby Shower

At the beginning of the year, I planned one of my favorite parties yet. Not only did I feel that this party theme turned out perfectly but it was also hosted for my sister, Jolene. When so much work and effort is put into styling these events it is so nice to be able to treat someone so deserving of such a party. We have kept the details hush hush as it was submitted and now featured in I Like her style Vancouver Spring Magazine. We hope you enjoy this Little Gem Baby Shower just as much as we do!

A few months before I started planning Jolene’s baby shower the girls of I Like Her Style Vancouver approached me to see if I would be interested in styling something for their spring issue. It was such a pleasure to be considered and I already knew that I was going to be planning my sister’s shower. I shared my idea of a gem themed shower and they loved it! I was so thrilled as Jolene’s house is filled with gems, crystals, furs and so much greenery. This party is most definately a reflection of her style and a way to celebrate both her and their newest gem.

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
