5 tips for the best girls weekend | Edmonton

How many hours do you spend thinking about all of the amazing things you could do with your BFF if only you had a weekend alone with her? I know those thoughts can be very overwhelming for me because I want to fit in a million things in less than 48 hours. So here is a little from what I have learned over the years of weekends away with my BFF…

1. Get Pampered. It is so fun to get all dressed up and hit the town, but taking it the extra step and having a professional do your make up really makes you feel like a princess. We had the girls from True Beauty Makeup get us all spiffied up!

2. Wear things you wish you could get away with but most likely won’t unless you have a partner in crime – like wearing a TUTU!! These adorable skirts are from Farminista.com – and I refuse to take mine off.

3. Have coffee breaks. Its so important to take time to just sit and enjoy each others company, even if you’re ignoring each other and checking your phone the entire time… kidding!

4. Stuff your face with pizza! Nobody likes a grumpy gus, and the best way to avoid the grump is to keep your blood sugar regular 😀 This tasty pizza was from Rosso – they use local, organic ingredients, yay!

5. Book a hotel room with a view and drink champagne. This one is really key. After a long day of shopping you’re going to want to put your feet up, and I truly believe that feeling like the queen of the city is only possible if you’re staring out a large window overlooking the city while sipping bubbles.

Tulle and Chambray

Nothing makes you feel like a princess quite like a tulle skirt.  Soft and feminine, with a bit of drama…it is sure to draw a bit of attention!

I decided to style this skirt over one of my favorite lace and chambray dresses, and the tulle definitely gave this dress such a fresh new look.  And when paired with a sweet pair of red flats, this outfit sure makes a statement!

I think the tulle skirt trend is just so much fun, and can definitely be dressed up or down.  Here’s to feeling like a ballerina whenever I wear it!

Dress Me Up!

We suffer from long winters, hiding inside to keep warm.  There is a certain point when we realize there is still a few more months of this weather and the rest of the continent is already feeling the spring sunshine.  These are the moments we “pretend” it is just not cold! It’s finally time to put on something fun and fancy and enjoy life again, no matter how much snow we have to run through!

A little tulle and something with sparkle will put a smile on your face and make winter tolerable!

Furcoat

We love any kind of fur coat, especially a shaggy fur coat.

Make sure to add a few fun accessories to your party look.  Big diamonds, pearls and anything pink will do.
