Our awesome intern Olivia designed these mega-cute RAOP holiday desktop/phone backgrounds, and we’re obsessed! We hope they bring you warmth and lots of cheer this holiday season!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for silver sparkles, disco balls, and ice cream! We love throwing fun styled summer parties, and this year’s concept was derived from a love of old time ice cream parlours, milky pastels and triple-scoop cones loaded with sprinkles. Of course it wouldn’t be a party without a little bit of glitter, so we gave our theme a disco twist! With pretty sweets and a swoon-worthy ice cream cake from our local favourite bakery, and custom party supplies by Lampshade Bash, tiny disco balls and succulent favours were the cherry on top of a perfect party. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday party or a bachelorette, we highly recommend you break out your favourite silver dancing shoes and throw a disco ice cream social of your own.
Happy Pride weekend everyone!
I know I’m a little bit late to the game with this one but trust me, it’s been a tough week in RAOP land ok? That said, it’s also been a really BIG week in the world! Gay marriage is now legal all across America, and it’s been truly incredible to watch my social feeds fill up with endless rainbows and messages of support.
To celebrate this magical time, I’ve teamed up with Charziie to host a giveaway! You can win yourself a hand-painted, one of a kind rainbow glitter tee (cropped or full length), and all you have to do is tag two friends in my Instagram post, and follow both Char and I! Bonus points will be awarded if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, and you have until tomorrow evening to enter. Sorry, Canadian and U.S. shipping addresses only please!

The nail art trend has been around for awhile now, but we still can’t get enough of painting cute little symbols on our paws from time to time!
A few weeks ago Paige and I got together at Studio B with Johanna Martin, a friend of the shop, local artist, and nail art extraordinaire. We went over some ideas, grabbed a handful of Trust Fund Beauty polishes from the shop, and started penning sketches onto scrap paper. Together we came up with a simple, super cute accent nail tutorial that almost anyone can accomplish with a roll of washi tape, nail polish, and a little bit of patience!
1 // Cut 3 peices of washi tape approx 1-2″ inch off the roll.
2 // Cut those pieces in half vertically (length-wise) – you need 5 total
3 // Paint your nail a solid colour
4 // Once the nail is very dry, create a diamond shape with washi tape (<>)
5 // Take the 5th piece of tape and place it level across the top of your nail (as if it were a french manicure?) Make sure the tape is stuck down well and paint the space with desired ‘diamond’ colour. We went with Trust Fund Beauty’s “Credit Card Workout”, a perfect glittery silver that you can find at the shop!
6 // Wait as long as you possibly can to ensure the polish has dried, then slowly and carefully peel back the tape. If you feel up to the task, add a few lines or glitter details with a tiny nail brush before top coating your nail to protect the design.
Shine on, you sparkling diamond you!
