Beauty & Accessories


Well I finally decided what to do with my hair - half up, pulled back with curls, some face-framing pieces, etc.  I definitely want it to look romantic, but a bit bohemian as well.  I've been to my mom's salon which we are using since its downtown Toronto, and I've discussed some options.  I was going to use my mom's stylist, but one of the other stylists (Jeremy) is getting me my clip-in hair extensions, and since he's the expert is working with them, he is going to do my hair instead.
Here are some hair inspiration pictures from
These are some pictures from a formal when I was in university that was styled in a similar way to the hair I want, 
but a bit different at the sides and more sweeping bangs.


I am makeup challenged.  I do NOT know what I am doing.  I would like to look fresh and glowing - maybe a sun-kissed look with some rosy as well, plus some dramatic eyes.  See the pictures below from my trial in April!  She came highly recommended from some friends who have used her for their weddings, and I really loved what she did.  I just told her smoky eyes with bronzes and browns, a flush of the cheeks, and simple lips.

Shoes & Jewelry

 I bought a pearl and lace flower and some pearl & crystal drop earrings from (vendors are PrimandPosies for the flower, and TZTUDIO for the earrings).  My mom lent me a pearl bracelet as well for the day - my "something borrowed"

For shoes and purse - I like blue.  I LOVE blue - my "something blue".  My mom got me a royal blue purse for Christmas, and I just found beautiful blue shoes to match - YAY!  Not navy like the girls, but I'm ok with that!
