Suicide Prevention Day

Today in honor of Suicide Prevention day, just be nice. If that chick looks horrible in those pants, keep it to yourself. If someone says something mean, just ignore them. Nothing nice to say? Then bite your tongue and spend the day in silence♥

Today is a day to spread awareness of Suicide prevention and show support for those who have lost loved ones or attempted it themselves. It is a day to be nice, to spread some love and boost someones confidence. (TEENAGE GIRLS!!!!)

Untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide, and suicide is the third leading cause of death among teenagers. (NIMH)

Fashion Updates

Here is a slight insight as to what I have been up to:)

SHOOTS SHOOTS SHOOTS!

This charming gentleman (Dylan from Spot6) was shot by Brittany M Williams and the makeup was done by the lovely Presley Foskett! Styled by yours truly:) More pictures coming soon!

 

And this stunner of a lady (Mila from Fayme) was photographed by Alyssa Wodabek. This was an interesting shoot as I styled it from afar, pulled the clothing and entrusted the rest to dear talented Alyssa! Make up was done by Jasmine Glass.

 

 

And here is some OLD NEWS!

And here is a wonderful behind the scene picture from a previous shoot with Team 1. The bald guy holding up these gorgeous models is none other than my dear old dad, who graciously let us suspend these ladies from the ceiling:)

Photoshop Learnings

Dear Friends,

 

Since I am not in school this year, I have had the odd desire to teach myself things I would probably be learning if I didnt graduate last year. So I went online and looked up photoshop Tutorials, because lets face it, I am always moved by some of the work some people can do with it. Here I give you my 1st attempts at some vintage like altering. Please feel free to throw your advice in my direction! It would be hugely appreciated!

 

This is the original, My charming little one checking out some chickens.

This was the first Vintage like one, which I am kind of fond of as it does look old.

This was my second attempt, and I believe it was a FAIL. It makes me think of an Instagram gone bad. Perhaps its just too blue?

I think I’ll stick to the monochromatic approach until I can perfect the dreamy vintage look.  But until then I will keep plugging away at learning wonderful new things!

Some people never go crazy….Lucky, we are not those people.

“Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.” – Charles Bukowski

Just thought I’d share a pleasant picture of my wonderfully crazy offspring!

And This picture… Which just proves that 6am is the best time in the world, there is truly nothing more inspiring than hearing the coyotes yip back and forth and the birds start chirping as the sun comes up! Cheers to camp outs in the country:)

Life is Great! Appreciate the small things!

Roost

I officially have a new all time favourite furnishing company, and I am extremely inspired by their catalogue! Their styling is effortless and rustic with modern pops and a very eclectic taste, and I can’t get enough of it *swoon*

May I present Roost, they are carried in stores all over the world and online as well. I dare you to be inspired by this awesomeness! There is also much more inspiration from them after the jump.

How gorgeous is this desk?

OVER THE EDGE!

Well Here is a sneak peek of what I have been working on! I am officially involved in starting a company for awesome modernized wooden furniture featuring barn board, drift wood and hard steel accents! The company is called Over The Edge Designs and our main designer has been building wooden furniture for over 30 years, so you can only imagine the detail and the craftsmanship!

The reason I am announcing the reveal now (a little prematurely) is that we have created our first driftwood table to be auctioned off at The End The Hurts Summer Boat Cruise, in which friends and family of Brittany Crichton will help raise money to help her with her Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. For more Information on our End the Hurts mission, please visit her website at: www.EndTheHurts.com

And without further ado, here is our beautiful Driftwood table, made from reclaimed and salvaged materials and guaranteed as a one of a kind piece.

Merchandising

This is a short video that best describes the merchandising world and what I actually do:) Definitely worth a laugh or two, as I am frequently asked what the hell is merchandising?

 

What Is Fashion Merchandising?

Mason Jar Cloche

Was so loving the look of the glasses cloches that are all over the internet, but I wanted something more rustic and fitting to my home. So I whipped out one of my many mason jars, bought a terracotta pot base and VOILA! I love the charming distressed finish and you can pretty much put anything in a cloche which is what makes them so attractive!

 

Hand Drawn Vintage Sign

So I told you I was busy working on an old piece of wood, and here it is! I am quite happy with it, though I feel it’s missing something. Any Suggestions?

Seasonal Inspiration

Well Friends, Here it is! This is my inspiration for the next few projects, I’m currently having an affair with vintage tickets, stamps and signage and when I was venturing through Michaels I was instantly in love with these brilliant pieces of scrapbook paper. Not sure what I will do with them yet, but you can bet it will be exciting.
