Friday Favourites

Hey hey! I'm so glad you came to join me for the first ever Friday Favourites post here on Rebecca Nash Photography.

 

This week I'm excited to share a few favourites that I came across this week or that really hit me this week as something you might love too.

 

Blacksburg Belle

Okay, I'm just putting this out there. I read a LOT of blogs and email newsletters each week but there is just something about April and her blog Blacksburg Belle that I just adore.

 

I love the style and colours, her totally down to earth voice, and that she showcases not only her knowledge (if you are in a creative business, there is so much you can learn from here) but also her style and quirky sensibilities.

 

It didn't take long for me to feel like April was someone amazing to learn from but also to feel like she was a friend. I mean, we have so much in common (like the fact that we both love Gilmore Girls and I just can't wait for the new mini series on Netflix - ekk!)

 

Check out Blacksburg Belle!

 

West Elm

So clearly I am super late to the game here.

 

No I didn't just learn about West Elm, I've heard about it so many times but it wasn't until I completely fell in love with a table from them that Jillian Harris used in a recent episode of Love it or List It Vancover that I finally hoped over to their site and fell in love with a whole lot of stuff.

 

I wanted to go through and redecorate so much of our home (and finish finding the perfect pieces for the office too) already but between Bouclair's new Atelier line, West Elm, Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, and Ikea I'm just itching to redo everything!

 

This Terrance Console Table is one of my favourite pieces right now (and the one I fell in love with on Love It or List It Vancover)

 

Renovation & Decor Shows

Who else is addicted?

 

I feel like it's a right of passage to a certain degree. I remember watching my mom watch these kinds of shows on HGTV even just a few years back and not really given them a second chance. Now a few years and milestones later (like turning 30, getting married and living in a home we own for more than 5 yrs) I'm a addicted to some of these shows and the contractors and stylists behind them. This is a good thing, and a bad.

 

On the positive side - I have new inspiration and ideas. I have a better sense of both the costs of certain types of renos that I have dreamed of doing as well as what actually adds value.

On the negatives - I totally want to redo the majority of our home and have all these crazy big (and unrealistic for us right now) ideas on how to make our home work better. There has been a whole lot of eye rolling from my husband for sure.

 

My current favourite shows include...

Love It or List It Vancouver

Property Brothers (and of their shows)

Master of Flip

Style Me Monday: Looking Hot While Getting Sexy

Looking Hot While Getting Sexy

 

This week's style inspiration comes from my recent trip to Lululemon with my good friend Michelle.
I have been working this year to get myself looking & feeling good inside and out. I've cleaned up my eating, been hitting the gym regularly, sleeping more at night, and taking care of myself.
My usual gym wear consists of oversized tees or basic ribbed tanks, with stretchy pants or short. This year I got to add the awesome skirt pictured before (and a fun hairband) to my workout wear wardrobe. I was super thrilled with the fabrics, the fit, the styles but two things that stood out:
  1. They have all lengths! Hallelujah!
  2. When they add grip to something (like the grip on the legs of the shorts under that skirt so they don't ride up or the little grip dots inside my new hairband) the grip is made of silicone and there's no latex in sight (I'm allergic).

 

Now I'm setting goals for myself then rewarding myself with a fantastic workout wardrobe!

 

What do you wear to workout?

Style Me Monday: Accessories Love!

Okay, anybody else a massive accessories junkie?

I love accessories more than I can say. Shoes, Scarves, Hats, Jewellery, Bags and more!

This year I've done a whole lot of paring back in my wardrobe and accessories banishing the old, worn out, too big, too small, and the stuff I just plain don't wear. Now looking at it there are some key things missing - colour & personality.

I've been holding off buying clothes til I lose more weight, or decide on my style, or find out if I got the job....

Sound familiar? One place where you can start to spice it up - Accessories!

These items are high on my wish list:

1) A beautiful silver necklace inspired by skeleton keys that spells out "LOVE"

2) This beautiful light teal/seafoam colour school boy bag! It's got colour and structure that add some character to even simple jeans and tees.

Accessories Love!

Style Me Monday: Spring Skirts

Spring has sprung and it's finally starting to feel like it! This last weekend got me thinking about pulling out the skirts to celebrate the rising temperatures!
This week I pulled together a few of my favorite styles.
When I cracked open the closet and peered inside...
Where were my cute skirts? Where was the fun and polish?
Oh Right...at this time last year I was ill, and 15lbs heavier.
I used that as an excuse not to buy or wear anything that attracted attention or showed my body.
Now it's time for a change...
Am I at my goal weight? No!
Is that going to stop me from being fabulous? No!
Today I've rounded up 4 of the top styles on my wishlist this year
1.) Classic ALine Skirt in Black, Navy, or Charcoal
2.) A Colourful, Textured, or Printed Pencil Skirt
3.) A Skirt with Youthful flare like this sequin number
4.) A Classic Pencil Skirt with a twist - Bandage Layers, Unique accents
This are now on my shopping list. (I'm keeping my eye's out for a number of items for my wardrobe this spring...)
What's your favourite spring skirt style?
