I love weddings. Seriously. I love the dancing, the venues, the sweetly in-love couples. I just really enjoy it all.  Jer & I have only been to one wedding this summer - his youngest brothers! We made the trip up to beautiful Powell River and had such a wonderful time joining in on their celebration. I swear, their wedding was so beautiful that I walked away with boat-loads of inspiration for our own wedding. 

Since we just were at a wedding, and this weekend we're going wedding venue shopping (eek - I'm so excited!) - weddings have been really on my mind. And one topic that always seems to come up when I'm invited to a wedding is what to wear. While you want to stay true to your style, you also always want to be dressed appropriately.

It feels like all year I dream about summer, and then once it's here it's gone in a breeze. I'm beginning to see Fall Style posts pop up everywhere, and while I love fall layers and rustic colour palettes, I'm simply not ready to say goodbye to the warm sunny rays of summer. I feel like I am really not ready to say goodbye to this summer especially because it has been such a spectacular one. I've done tons of little trips, hiked a bunch, and I even got engaged to my best friend & partner in crime. 

Summer 2015 has been one for the books, and I just wish it would keep going. And since I am so not ready to say goodbye to Mr.Golden Sun I am planning ahead for a little "summer reprieve" from our cold wet winter in Vancouver. Click through today to learn more of my exciting upcoming trip (eek - I can't wait!) and to read up on a few of my top tips to hitting the beach feeling your best both body + confidence wise!

How to Create a Blog Calendar

Have you ever been to a blog and loved the way the posts all just... kind of went together? It's like they decided on a topic and ran with it for all those posts, right? Well, that's because many blogs do run like this so that their content has a natural flow to it that makes you want to read more.  What they've done is create a blog calendar, and not only will it help create more consistency to your posts - it'll also be a lot easier to maintain. 

While I don't always run my blog strictly on a calendar, I do like to always have a theme available to rely on during those lack-of-creativity moments. I have found that these themes/ calendars have helped my blog have more of a natural content flow (which improves your bounce rate!), and they have also helped me avoid creative-blocks. Click through today to learn how to create your own blog calendar!
