What does it truly mean to be fiercely fabulous? I am extremely proud to be taking part in the 2nd annual Stepping Out In Style 2.0 fashion show https://www.steppingoutinstyle.ca  presented by TAMIR

 

This fashion show is to demonstrate that regardless of shape, size or ability, we are all beautiful and have talents and aspirations to be celebrated.  Join us for this one-of-a-kind fashion show – together let’s be fiercely fabulous for inclusion! A bigger, better fashion show featuring diversley-abled models with over 400 guests. All funds raised will be allocated towards supporting Tamir’s programming for its participants.

I had the true honour of spending time with the participants and the excitement is building up. It is the very first time in my entire career that I felt so invested in a fashion show. This truly drives home the message that we can be anything we want to be. There are no limits!! The only way to describe this is imperfectly PERFECT. Im bursting with pride to see the willingness in this phenomenal community.

My Life As A Socialite – Bed Bath And Beyond

Happy Friday Lovely Friends

Today is shaping up to be a perfect day. Now that I have your company im all set. Thank you for stopping by.

With the labour Day weekend here its just another excuse to throw a party. I I teamed up with none other than http://www.bedbathandbeyond.ca . 

Im not ready to say goodbye to summer and nothing screams BRUNCH more than a Lemony Spritzer.I have officially called this my summer drink-) I thought of a get together about a week ago but knew that I needed a few pieces that were gorgeous yet affordable. Hell yes, I mean thats every hosts dream! I walked into the store not knowing what to expect and can I tell you that I was SO IMPRESSED.

I initially scheduled in an hour to look around but lets just say 2.5hrs later I was finally done. Bed Bath and Beyond is a one stop shop for the entire household. What makes a good host you ask, well I happen to think im a professional in this department. I grew up in a huge family and I loved making things extra special for our guests. There is a certain style and grace when the place is well decorated and the company just adds the extra spice to the occasion.

 

 

My beautiful daughter #minime helped lay out the spread and suggested adding some greenery from our country garden. I have to admit this took setup to the next level. The element of marble dinnerware, crystal stemware, cast iron trays and a super versatile 6 in one server. We managed to find a 4 gallon party tub which was just so handy and beautiful aswell.

 

Janoska Lemon Spritz RECIPE

1 Fresh lemon and Lime

500ml Sparking Water or Soda Water

250ml Orange Juice (Fresh is preferred)

40z Kettle One Botanical Vodka (Optional

Place all of the ingredients into a pitcher or punch bowl 

Your guests will be #bubbly and keep coming back for top ups assured -)

I love serving this drink in a fancy champagne flute with a gorgeous paper straw.

The next question is what do we serve with the fresh and zesty cocktail. I decided to go with a medium bodied french brie topped with seasonal peaches. Its a good idea to warm the naan bread in the BBQ or oven on extremely low to pair things up in the cast iron pans which retain heat perfectly.

The main meal comprised of a seasonal green salad and salmon (Yum Yum)

We couldn’t help but add homemade vanilla, coconut cupcakes just to ensure our guests would never leave -serves in mini stainless bowls with a gold utensils to up the level of cuteness. Pintrest is such a fabulous resource for the beginner host to an advanced host who just wants to change things up. Question is, are you coming to my next party?

I want to hear your tips and tricks?. As much I love hosting and so eager to learn new things aswell. Until next time, have a lovely day and see you on the gram.

  • I am a working mother who is often on the road and believe me the #momguilt is real. Most people message me to find out how I manage everything and I wish I could say I have it all figured out. The truth is I take it one week at a time and prioritize my families needs the best i can. I have been thinking about answering your questions in an IGTV series. Would you like that? #mompreneur #momtruth
  • Family weekends and lots of snaps @fujifilm_instax_northamerica - Why wait when we get printing the moment the picture is taken. @instaxhq
  • I sometimes hesitate posting some images because I see imperfections. As I get older I realize those imperfections are part of my DNA. It’s what makes each one us - one of a kind. Something like a rare diamond or gem 💎 @akassatly_photography
