Comments Off on Little Gem Baby Shower | I Like Her Style Vancouver Magazine Feature

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 quick snap before we head out this morning, Sophie jumped in at the last second smiling with alllll her teeth 😍❤️ my shirt .. which is actually a bodysuit is @gentlefawn | hat @gigipip | shorts and cardigan @shophunnis | Hair curled with new wand from @conaircanada
  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )

  • On our way to drop this guy off at the airport again. We had five glorious days with him at home and now it's back to single momming it. #deepbreath
  • Picked up this wreath from @eucalyptuspopup today for a video shoot tomorrow (see my last post for what that’s about) and def think wreaths are perfect home decor all year round. What do you think?
  • A good night’s sleep makes a huge difference for how our kids behave throughout the day and how much energy they have to do the things they love!⠀
