#HolidayBlogSquad - A Very Merry Blogger Holiday
What do you get when you throw together 5 Toronto Bloggers, some amazing local businesses and champagne? A holiday blogger photo shoot full of sparkles, giggles and love. One chilly December afternoon, some of the loveliest ladies I've had the pleasure of meeting on this blog journey and I took to the studio to celebrate the holidays in style. It really is incredible what can happen when you're surrounded by creative and talented ladies. What was once a empty studio was quickly turned into a holiday wonderland, complete with pastel details, bling, donuts, champagne and lots of tulle. What started off as casual Instagram comments and blogger comments has blossomed into beautiful friendships, and I couldn't be more proud to stand and laugh next to these incredibly talented ladies. Read on to see the details and photos of this fun afternoon, and to get to know Gabriella, Amy, Eleni and Kaylee - plus Kaylee's incredibly gifted photographer sister Raelene Giffin.
Our tulle skirts are from a locally owned and operated Toronto business called The Pastel Dress Party. Tulle skirts are an incredibly fun piece to have in your closet, and chasing one of the highest quality is so important. I absolutely love The Pastel Dress Party for their amazing quality, as well as the vast variety their tulle skirts and dresses come in - honestly, the possibility and colours are endless! We're all wearing the Kimmy skirt, and my colour is peach. You guys know me and my blush skirts, I can't get enough!
Our flower crowns are crafted by Flower Maiden Flowers, and has us all feeling like holiday pixies - honestly, you really can't help but have fun when wearing a flower crown!
Funny story - ever the lush, instead of pretending to sip on my champagne like the other girls I actually ended up downing 3 glasses during the course of the day. The result was a very tipsy Noob who ended up spilling her 3rd glass all over everyone - whoops!
Our jewels are by Cherrypick, arguably the only stop for super-sparkly statement pieces - perfect for the holidays.
Between photos, the ladies and I had the best time munching and snacking on our cotton candy favours from Fancy Puffs. We enjoyed the organic holiday flavour 'gingerbread' and it was seriously the most delicious and complex tasting cotton candy that I've ever had!
If it looks like we're having too much fun - we are! I honestly take so much inpisration from these talented Toronto bloggers, and I think that you will too. Head over to their blogs to see what I'm talking about - and for more photos of our fun holiday photo shoot! From left to right (excluding yours truly:)
