Paris… On a Budget!

“Paris exists to remind you that your dreams are real”

Paris Up Close

I seriously feel as though Paris was MONTHS ago!! Can I go back now please? I’ve been meaning to write this blog for the past week or so, but am admittedly still feeling that post-vacay bliss. AKA. I want to do absolutely nothing but sit on my tushie & binge watch The Handmaid’s Tale whilst binge eating baguettes & macarons literally all day. Side Note: I fully realize this situation sounds more like “rut” than “bliss“, but I’m a glass half full kinda gal, so we’re going to go ahead & roll with “bliss” today. So – I FINALLY decided to pull myself together – partially because I’d finished The Handmaid’s Tale (snaps for Peggy), but MOSTLY because I was afraid that all of my Paris tips & tricks (& they’re goodies) would soon be a distant memory & I’d therefore have zero information to give all of you! So… yeah… you’re welcome! 😛  (more…)


What You Need to Know About Attending & Hosting an Influencer Event

“Why Use Social Media? Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories you tell”

Seth Godin

Okay so as IF I actually needed to say this but Social Media is HUGE – I know, I know… I have developed quite the penchant for stating the obvious but it has literally spawned into this seemingly undying force of nature that shows absolutely zero signs of slowing down anytime soon! And thank actual GOODNESS because it just so happens to be, oh I don’t know, my whole entire life & career!! Now while most people automatically assume that a good 99.9% of my job consists of sitting on Twitter all day whilst carefully curating modertaly witty Tweets (ahem… I’ll have you know it’s actually 96%), there IS quite a lot of depth & responsibilties that go along with the title of being a Social Media Coordinator/Blogger – the most fun? Hosting &/or attending Social Media Influencer Events! SO having just recently hosted an Influencer Event at Ambrosia Natural Foods, I thought I’d give the low-down on tips for both hosting & attending an event such as this! ENJOY! (more…)


How To: Throw A Budget Friendly Halloween Party

“When witches go riding, & black cats are seen, the moon laughs & whispers… it’s near Halloween”

Quotes Pictures

GAH – this past weekend, I celebrated my second annual Halloween Dinner Party up North & I could NOT be happier with how it all turned out – like I am one million percent over the moon ecstatic with the end result. This years’ theme was “Creepy Carnival“, & I wanted to share just how easy it can be to throw a totally inexpensive, themed Halloween bash utilizing primarily recyclable materials & [somewhat] healthy treats!! Side Note: talk about bad timing with the grotesque overabundance of creepy clown sightings… whoops… but I promise I planned this theme & décor a YEAR in advance!!!!   (more…)


How To Throw A Grown-Up Slumber Party

“Keep calm, & put your jammies on”

unknown

To be completely honest here, I was never one to really love the whole slumber party situation. I’m typically more of a “comforts of home” type of gal, but I can TOTALLY appreciate the appeal that these candy-fueled, all-night bingers can have for a group of pre-tween girls! HOWEVER… now that I am a self-proclaimed “mature” adult, I’m so here for this sophisticated version of ladies night in; AKA: an adult slumber party!! I mean, hello… Bachelorette Party Inspo!!!!  (more…)
