Dear Diary

There’s only a week and a bit left until our first ever Social Media Workshop, and all of the pretty little details are starting to come together. We’re keeping a lot of secrets up our sleeves for the actual event, but we wanted to give all of you a better idea of what we’re planning (before the tickets completely sell out!).

First off, we’re going to have the best snacks. If you love going for afternoon tea? You’ll love this workshop! We’ve teamed up with some super talented local favourites like Sloane TeaKitten and the Bear, and Desmond & Beatrice to bring you a spread fit for a queen, so bring a pen, your phone, and a big sweet tooth!


Secondly, on top of going home with adorable photos from our photo booth and tons of notes and resources, you’ll also be walking away with some pretty incredible gift bags. A massive list of our favourite makers have pitched into help with the workshop, providing everything from notebooks to hair clips and temporary tattoos. Everything will be packed up in our favourite locally made Fieldguided totes, and you can also expect to find some mystery gifts from Bon PufThimblepress and Desmond & Beatrice on the day of!


Thirdly, the space is going to be pretty magical. We’re transforming Studio B into a wonderland of flowers and balloons with the help of Blush & Bloom and Northstar Balloons. Get ready for unicorns, pink blooms and pretty surprises around every corner. Basically, it’ll be Instagram heaven.

Last but most certainly not least, the content itself! You might be wondering what exactly we’re going to talk about, so we wanted to provide a bit of an outline to fill in the blanks. Paige and I will be using our unique combination of business and personal account experience to help you optimize your social media presence. That means talking about everything from photo editing, set dressing and lighting to using storytelling and building a cohesive brand with a strong, active following. Using Facebook, Twitter, Intagram and Pinterest as effectively as possible is a major point of interest of course, but you’ll also learn about connecting with other people, brands and events. Most importantly, we’re going to talk about time management, motivation, and inspiration, the key ingredients for social media success.

Don’t forget to grab your ticket, and please free to ask us any questions on InstagramFacebookTwitter, or below in the comments. Can’t wait to see you next Saturday at Studio B!

Dress UpOh so Pretty

Our Pool Party might have been this past Sunday, but that so doesn’t mean the fun is over! We’ve got a few more recipes, DIY’s and printables up our glittery sleeves, and of course we have a bit of advice concerning the most important part of every party: what to wear!

Paige and I spent so much time meticulously planning this event that we almost forgot to figure out our outfits (almost). We were lucky enough to have our hair done by Amanda, a colour magician at Blyss Salon, and we wanted to play up the amazing raspberry and blush hues she created in our locks.

We knew that a lot of pink had to be involved, and of course some party pieces by (also known as the most fun company on earth.) We also wanted to work in our new favourite celebration piece, the Party Skirt (an adorable Canadian brand that just became available at Bicyclette! Yay!) With all of those guidelines in mind, we put together a few colourful ensembles that would be perfect for a summer bbq, a rooftop soirée, or even a pool party!



















And of course I couldn’t just leave out pool party beauty now could I? There are so many wonderful mega-cute products that work so well for summer events, and you might be surprised by how many of them are waterproof too!
