Lela Rose x Papyrus // The prettiest cards you've ever seen!

Going to the mailbox usually means just picking up flyers and bills, so finding a beautiful card inside your letter drop is always the most wonderful surprise. Sending a card is such a simple gesture but there is truly nothing like unexpectedly receiving a beautiful card with a handwritten note inside.  I think we can all agree that we ought to send more snail mail but sometimes the hardest part is finding the right card to send.  Today I'm sharing a few of my favourite cards from Papyrus' brand new collection... and these just might be some of the prettiest cards you have ever seen!

Papyrus teamed up with fashion designer Lela Rose to create the prettiest greeting cards you have ever seen.

Date night picnic // Tacos salad & Mexican key lime pie

As we head into fall, I’ve been soaking up the last few warm days!  In my opinion, there is no better way to spend a beautiful afternoon than enjoying a picnic with some yummy food and a great view. So, over Labour Day weekend I packed up a Mexican inspired picnic for my hubby and I to enjoy together.

When you think of a typical picnic, most people think boring cold sandwiches and typical crudités. But instead of going the traditional route, I wanted to bring along one of my husband’s favourite foods… taco salad!

Party pony, lace-up heels & a special invitation!

Let's be honest, I might have a little bit of a shoe obsession!  Whether it's a statement heel or a classic boot, a good shoe can take any outfit from basic to amazing!

Lace Duster & the Prettiest Bouquet

You may remember from my Instagram Story last week that a beautiful bouquet recently arrived at my door.  The gorgeous flowers I'm holding are from Callia Flowers, a brand new floral service that just launched in Winnipeg!  Instead of a traditional storefront, the entire business is run through their website where you can order stunning bouquets to be shipped right to your front door!  The best part is that their prices are very really affordable, especially considering how large the bouquets are!  I was also really impressed by the freshness of the flowers.  They lasted well over a week and looked even more beautiful days later as the blooms opened up.

The girls at Callia were wonderful enough to provide you guys with a discount code so you could get some pretty flowers for yourselves!  Just use the code "PLD10" to save $10 on any bouquet!

Cake Decorating Tutorial // Blush Ruffles & Gold Sequins

Hello Darlings!

Back when I shared my kitchen reveal, you all got to see a sneak peek at an amazingly gorgeous cake that just so happened to be sitting on my counter.  I promised I would share a tutorial on how you could diy the cake yourself and the long awaited (and much requested!) tutorial is finally here!

Having never decorated a cake like this before, I brought in the experts to show you how it's done!  To create this gorgeous tiered ruffle cake with gold sequins, I collaborated with my friend Stephanie (fun fact: we used to be horseback riding lesson buddies!) as well as her friend Sara.

I hope you all love this tutorial!  Make sure to leave a comment and let me know if you try to diy your own cake!
