Mexican Adventure

Mexican Adventure

It was such an amazing trip! 10 days in paradise was not enough. This was our eighth time in Mexico and every time we are there we dream of how we could become permanent vacationers (like in the Ben Stiller movie The Heartbreak Kid). It starts when we first touch down and go immediately outside to the airport bar to have the first sips of the margaritas (which always seem to taste the best). Exploring all the quaint little towns and exploring new beaches was a dream come true. Not to mention all the amazing food…octopus tacos, ceviche, shrimp, fish - it was all so good.

I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from my trip! Share some of your favourite spots and memories from traveling to Mexico!

Can’t wait to plan my next trip!

All You Need is Love and Some Donuts

I had my first experience at a wedding, working with a donut wall this past Fall and it was so much fun!!

When I first sat down with the couple it was one the first things we discussed. We were lucky enough to have a groom that was super handy and was able to construct the wall. Then it was finding a great bakery that specializes in gourmet donuts. Cake by Design was able to put together an amazing section that were both tasty and aesthetically pleasing. There were so many great designs it was hard narrowing it down to just a few. The bakery was able to use the couples wedding colours (navy, gold and pearl white) when creating the design.

The donut wall is a great way to get your guests involved in the night. There were cute and personalized takeaway bags for each guest to take a donut home with them.

Anniversary Shoot

My husband and I were looking to do something different for our anniversary and thought a photo shoot with our new puppy Willy would be a great idea. As many of you already know, Willy joined the Twist gang a few months ago and we wanted to get some great shots of him as a little puppy. My husband and I had been going back and forth for years about getting a dog and finally were in the right place in our life that we were able to dedicate the time so we pulled the trigger. He is the perfect dog for the two of us as he is able to play rough with James and snuggle up with me at night. What a joy he brings to our already amazing life!

Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies

How Renting Your Bridesmaid Dresses Can Make Your Wedding Planning Easier

The process of picking out bridesmaid dresses has essentially been the same since the beginning of time. Long hours are spent at multiple boutiques searching for a dress that everyone can agree on, then bridesmaids shell out lots of $$$ to purchase and alter it, all while claiming they will “totally wear it again!”. The modern bride has been waiting for the industry to make some much needed changes and the answer is finally here. Rental bridesmaid dresses are changing the game! Here are some reasons how renting your bridesmaid dresses will make your BFFs happier and your wedding planning 10x easier.

Cut costs for your ‘maids

You know how stressful it can be wedding planning on a budget, and your bridesmaids have a budget too. So show them how much you appreciate their unwavering support by helping them save some cash! Renting bridesmaid dresses instead of buying them can save each ‘maid up to 60%. That is some meaningful savings! Your girls will be grateful for your thoughtfulness, and most likely be even more willing to go the extra mile to help you out with your planning.

Mix and match with ease

Want to give your bridesmaids the chance to pick a dress that is comfortable and suits them best? But worried about this messing up your gorgeous, cohesive dream day? Don’t worry, at BridesMade, your bridesmaids can choose from tons of styles that flatter everybody, while you can be certain that the colours are a perfect match! Give your bridesmaids the freedom of choice while eliminating any worry that one girl’s pink will clash with another’s.

Save time and energy

Birthday Vacation

Birthday Vacation

Going away for my birthday has somewhat become a tradition for my husband and I over the past 5 years. I love travelling to the west coast of Canada as, in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful places. It has an amazing vibe and some of the most beautiful scenery around. Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE wine - and what's better than spending my birthday travelling to different wineries. After about my third day of drinking, I turned to my husband and said how can anyone get sick of doing wine tasting.  Well, after a full fun day of drinking on my birthday, I woke up to one of the worst hangovers and all I wanted to do was sleep :( There is such a thing as too much wine. 

Here are some of my favorite photos.
