Happy Monday everyone! This weekend was definitely one of the most memorable weekends of my life! If you stumbled on my Instagram feed this past Saturday and Sunday you would have noticed that myself and some other amazing bloggers were whisked away for an incredible President’s Choice summer cottage retreat in Muskoka! I will recap every detail soon, but this amazing weekend is carrying itself over to today with some more exciting news!
As you can probably tell from my cover image, Merry Mag is back with a Summer issue and I couldn’t be happier! I had the best time back in November contributing to the holiday style section of Merry, so when I was asked to come up with 4 summertime date looks for this issue I jumped on the chance! If you didn’t know Merry Mag is a handmade guide to all things DIY, home, food and style curated completely by bloggers and spearheaded by the very talented Melissa of The Sweet Escape. Melissa is one of the most talented DIY’ers /prop/food/everything stylists that I have the pleasure of knowing so make sure to check her out!
For the summertime issue I came up with 4 date looks consisting of a dessert date, picnic outing, rooftop BBQ and a summer wedding. I convinced the ever-loving and supportive boyfriend of mine to step out from behind the camera and play model while my seriously talented sister Rae (Raelene Giffin Photography) shot and edited these beautiful photos! This date look was my favourite of the bunch, from the outfit (provided by Blossom Lounge), to the location (Bobette & Belle), this shoot felt like an engagement session and the customers at the time definitely agreed.
Be sure to check out Merry Mag Summer for every kind of creative idea that you could possibly want/need this summer! Also be sure to check back here on Thursday for more photos of my picnic outing outfit with my handsome boy…he’s kinda the cutest.
