Recent Project: Track Fitness

A couple of months ago Joanna Track and Track Fitness reached out to me about merchandising the shop component of their studio along with some ideas for the window.

With some mannequins, a few new fixtures, prop accessories and some rearranging, the shop is now in full swing! As for the window, I designed a decal that went front and centre, added in height with the window boxes and had cardboard tubing cut to varied sizes that I accented with coloured paper to continue with the circular theme.

I couldn’t help but daydream about a new workout wardrobe while merchandising all their cool collections. Not only do they have their own Track Fitness collection but they carry Lululemon along with other brands that I can’t wait to get my hands on. Um seriously let’s talk about all those printed pants!

Inspiration 7.14.14

she believed she could

{via Society 6}

I apologize for the lack of blog posts this month. For the first time in the five and a half years of writing my blog, I fell off the map.  It’s been a hell of a last few weeks with some amazing projects completed and others still in the works.

I’ve always struggled with achieving a certain level of perfection in every area of my life – the best friend, a great daughter/grand daughter, the best fur baby mama, the hardest worker and striving to be at the top of everything I do. It’s damn right exhausting and pretty much impossible hence why I haven’t been able to blog as consistently these last few weeks.

I’ve thought a lot about my blog and blogging in general. It’s changed immensely over the last year and I think there are several different reasons for it. Despite all the changes, I’d like to go back to my roots and bring back some of the stuff I used to write about. I cannot promise daily posts but I do promise quality posts and original content. This girl is back and ready to go!

Recent Project: Flamingo Window

mm-flamingo-2mm-flamingo-1

If you follow along on the Re:Creative Facebook Page you know that my flamingo obsession really isn’t a secret. I’m been itching to incorporate these pink glittered bad boys in a window so I added them into the new window I installed last week for Mini Mioche. A hand embroidered back drop and flamingos make for the perfect summer window combo!

Inspiration 7.8.14

cottage weekend

 

An extra long weekend up north with five amazing girls was absolute perfection. Suntanning, swimming, volleyball, paddle boating, bonfires, yummy food, spa, boozing, bike rides and girl time was just what the doctor ordered.

This was my first weekend away in over a year and it made me realize that I have to make more time for more vacations. It’s true that this usually means a crazy workload pre and post vacay but it is very much worth it. They feed the soul and create beautiful memories that I will cherish for a lifetime!

Inspiration 6.30.14

memories

I had the most amazing birthday weekend full of dancing leading to very sore feet, too many drinks without a hangover, amazing friends that I adore and yummy food which means intense gym sessions this week.

I’m heading up north for a 4 day weekend with the girls on Friday so I’m spending the week ahead to crack down on a  few big projects I have on the go. This means I’ll be back to regular blogging next week. Have a good one and Happy Canada Day!

30+1

birthday quote

Today I turn 31 which means I survived my first year of my 30s. In the past year I’ve come to realize that:

I love a good dance party but a yummy dinner out with friends is even better.

A three day music festival is fun but three days on the beach is even better.

A whole new wardrobe is exciting but a couple quality items are even better.

A drunken night out with friends is a good time but a wine drinking night in can be even better.

I’ve learned….

Quality over quantity in every area: friends, clients, food, shopping.

Staying in on a Saturday is completely ok and sometimes preferred.

Short shorts no longer look as cute.

Going with my gut. Always.

Working hard and believing in myself definitely pays off.

Red lipstick is an absolute necessity.

Looking forward to more in my 30s (even though I totally miss saying I’m a 20 something year old)!

DIY: Summer Projects

I tend to have a “why buy it when I can make it” attitude along with a “I hate having the same thing as everyone else” mentality which is why I’m such a big fan of DIY projects. Here’s a little round up of some of my favourite DIY’s I’ve done that are perfect for summer!

Style Ideas: Boho

A boho vibe has always been part of my style, especially in the summer, but this year even more so. High waisted denim shorts, fringe, stacked rings and layering are all my summer wardrobe go-to’s. I find I have different levels of it from casual to a step above casual to dressy.  I put together a few of my fave summer looks for some inspiration!
