Some of my favourite wedding blogs

Lately I have been preoccupied getting ready for The Original Wedding Soiree taking place at the One King West Hotel on April 15.  With all these wedding hair pieces surrounding me I have been hit by the wedding bug all over again.  I know, I know, I am already married (and not thinking about doing it again)!!

I get so inspired by so many beautiful ideas to celebrate the most important day of a couple's life together.  A few of my favourite blogs/websites right now are Wedding Chicks, Style Me Pretty, Style Me Pretty Canada and WedLuxe Magazine.  The photos are amazing...  take a look at this photo shoot, amazingly beautiful, right?

This dress... OMG... how gorgeous.  The hair and makeup...flawless.

I am looking forward to meeting new people and having a wonderful day at the Wedding Soiree and gathering even more inspiration for my hair pieces.

Tickets are still on sale for the event and can be purchased here.

Also, if you visit my Facebook page today or tomorrow I am offering two "speaker pass" tickets to the show.  These passes includes entry to the show (and all it's perks) as well as access to speakers Karina Lemke (Destination Weddings), Lori Pannia, Editor in Chief of The Ring Bearer (Couture Trends) and Abby Larson, Founder of Style Me Pretty!  Good luck!

Sunday at the Baby Soiree

Wow, what an exhausting, but great day at the Original Baby Soiree at the Yorkville Intercontinental Hotel.  I have never been among so many beautiful expectant (and new) mothers and gorgeous babies, it was great.

All my hard work and long nights in preparation for the show paid off!

My display at the show, thank you Adrienne Chau at Peppercorn & Poppy for posting this photo on twitter!
It was a great opportunity to meet many other fabulous women entrepreneurs who work tirelessly to make their businesses a success which inspired me to work even harder to make Swag Barn bigger and better.

It never ceases to amaze me how these women dedicate so much time and love to their businesses along with holding other jobs, being moms etc.

More photos to come!

Until then,

Girly pieces for the girly girl!

I have had so much fun in the past few weeks making feather hair pieces for babies and little girls and the prep for the Original Baby Soiree has been craziness! 

I had three wonderful little girls take over my living room on Saturday to create these photos.  Thank you Kiara (Sara), Mikaela and Brenna (Shannon) for offering your gorgeous selves to me so I can show my hair pieces so beautifully.


I have also made some pieces for babies.  The white pieces are perfect for Christenings. 

Hoping to see you all at the show this weekend, until then I have a lot more work to do!!
