Planning A Vegas Bachelorette Party

Planning a bachelorette party can be a daunting, time consuming task for any maid of honour or bridesmaid.  I recently participated in's bachelorette campaign and would love to share some helpful tips, tricks and suggestions to make the party planning experience more organized, fun, and enjoyable.

Are you planning a Vegas bachelorette party and have no idea where to start? To help get you started, think about these points:
  1. Ask your bride if she is more comfortable with a Mild or Wild party.
  2. Decide when, where and how long you will be staying in Vegas. Having trouble deciding? Use this page to find travel and hotel packages.
  3. Make a small itinerary. Decide what shows, excursions or clubs you would like to see or what best suits your party.
  4. What essentials would you pack? What will the weather be like? Are you planning on having matching outfits, t-shirts made, etc? 
Below you will find information on where to stay, dine, drink, play and shows you can take in while exploring Vegas all easily broken down into the category of a Wild or Mild party!

Also included is a fun Vegas Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt for you and your party to print off or screenshot. This fun and easy hunt can be done by both small or large parties and take a little stress off of planning!

I hope you find this post helpful when it comes to planning your Wild or Mild Vegas Bachelorette Party!

GUEST POST: Most Wearable Fall 2017 Trends at a Glance!

Most Wearable Fall 2017 Trends at a Glance!
Fall 2017 collections were full of surprises, and there was something for every girl. While some designers tried to redefine the classics with newer elements, others chose to work with colour palettes and prints in ways that didn’t feel like the “fall”. In this special post, we will talk of the top trends of fall 2017 and how you can get these looks right! 

Velvet for the lady: Velvet is a true fall classic in many ways. It has a soft and feminine appeal that works for varied outfits. Last year, fall collections had a lot of velvet, but mostly in shoes and handbags. In 2017, you will see more of staples, right from dresses to outfits that have a splash of velvet. Top designers and labels like Jason Wu and Jill Stuart worked with velvet in a number of ways, and the colour palette was anything but ordinary. If a full outfit seems too much, you can take a shot at skirts and tops too. 

Say it loud: The world is dealing with a lot of serious concerns, and designers have found the right way to voice their opinions. From Ashish’s amazing focus on feminism to Prabal Gurung’s stunning take on the immigrant problem, there were so many new statements. Basically, you are just saying your mind with a slogan tee. The good thing is you don’t need to spend on expensive outfits. Just check online or get one customized locally. It’s all about being in style, and with a purpose for sure. 

Silver girl: Well, a lot of designers also worked with silvery elements, both for shoes and outfits. These are not metallic, but subtler and wearable. Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors and Genny were some of the names that worked with this trend. You can go for dresses, which can be edgy, but if that seems over the top, you can also choose to go for shoes and handbags too. In short, this trend is not going anywhere in near future. 

I love power: One of the better and wearable trends this season was power suits. If you are someone who moves from one boardroom to another, you need these suits that have a more masculine feel, thanks to broad shoulders. You can get one tailored from a local store or can check online to find other options. Some of the designers/labels you can check for this trend include Calvin Klein and Max Mara. 
It’s important to mention that puffer jackets made a comeback this season, and for those who need something warm for the season, this is the best pick beyond any doubt. 
Hope you had fun with this post. For more on fashion and style, you can follow this amazing blog. Until we meet again, stay in vogue!

IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED! I have made my first youtube video! I realize the quality is not the best, but the good news is... I can only get better from here. It would mean the world to me if you could show some support and subscribe to my channel as I plan on doing fun videos, giveaways and so much more!

August 3-5th, my family and I travelled to beautiful Prince Edward Island. Below is information of some of the sights, attractions, food, and much more featured in the video.  Enjoy!

Kindred Spirits Inn & Cottages: "Located on six acres in the heart of Cavendish and literally next door to Anne of Green Gables, Kindred Spirits is a quiet sanctuary in the middle of Cavendish, PEI." 
A pool and hot-tub located off the Inn, bikes to rent, playground, fire-pit, outdoor activities, games room and so much more, Kindred Spirits is the perfect getaway for all ages.

My family rented a two bedroom deluxe cottage and it fit the seven of us comfortably, it included:
  • Master Bedroom: King Bed
  • Second Bedroom: Queen or Double plus a single bed
  • Full eat-in kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher
  • Large living room with a double sofa bed and fireplace
  • Full bath
  • Some units have a second bath (ensuite)
  • Electric Heat
  • All dishes and linens provided
  • Dishwasher
  • Cable TV and DVD players
  • Propane BBQ
  • Air Conditioning
  • 6-8 person private hot-tub (MY FAVOURITE PART)
  • Front veranda and back deck

The Dunes Studio Gallery and Café: Located in Brackley Beach, Prince Edward Island, The Dunes has breathtaking grounds, unique and creative items located in their Gallery and the most delicious food you will taste in the café. Although the atmosphere was very relaxed and staff were dressed in cool, funky clothing, it was one of the most elegant dining experiences I have ever had.  I enjoyed the Grilled Filet Mignon, Fire Grilled Beef Tenderloin topped with Braised Mushrooms in a Chianti Demi Glace Sauce. Served with Potato of the Day (Mashed with cheddar and turnip) and a Medley of Vegetables.

Cavendish Beach: On the Gulf of St. Lawrence, this natural sand beach stretches for 8km with the red sandstone cliffs on one end and the entrance to New London Bay on the other. The beach is located within The Prince Edward Island National Park and has lots of parking, changing rooms, washrooms and a canteen. Want a break from relaxing on the beach? Take a stroll along the beautiful boardwalk.
