For those who don’t know, I consider myself a CBC – Chinese Born Canadian. But having lived in Canada my whole life, I sort of lost a sense of my Chinese heritage and it took the wedding for me to realize that I don’t know much about it. There have been SO many traditions and […]read more

Anyone catch the Golden Globes two nights ago?

Updo Inspiration

Updo Inspiration

AUG 12

This one is for you Mel! Here are some updo images for inspiration. In my opinion, it’s always nice to have the bride’s hair distinctly different than the bridesmaids. This can either be done by adding a single flower, hairpiece or taking on a completely different hairstyle. I think the hairstyles below of Kate Beckinsale […]read more

Styled Chignons for Inspiration

Styled Chignons for Inspiration

JUN 23

I had a look at the recent hairstyles on the runway for 2009 ready-to-wear and found one resonating trend: chignons. Whether ornamented with accessories or kept neat and simple, all these low chignons were paired with slicked back hair and plenty of hairspray. While I’m not always a fan of stiff hairdos, it’s comforting that […]read more

Braided Beauty

Braided Beauty

Braids create an ethereal and bohemian look that’s perfect for a bride who is a laid back beauty. It’s best paired with a grecian/draped wedding gown or one with an empire waist.

Thoughts on Red Lips

Thoughts on Red Lips

JAN 05

{photo: Oakstream Photography} In my opinion, nothing makes a bride in stark white stand out more than cherry stained lips. I mean, look how stunning she looks!
