The Design of a Dinner Party

I was asked by blog mate Jocelyn to help her bring her upcoming dinner party to the next level. She wasn’t able to get away on a winter holiday this past year and so decided to invest in hosting an amazing dinner party to celebrate with some close friends. You can read a recap on Joc’s version of the night here. I’m going to give you a little insight into how this dinner party came together from a design standpoint.

Storing Jewellery, Beautifully

Chunky statement pieces and long-chained necklaces are staples for accessory lovers of late, but it seems like jewellery boxes just haven't kept up to the changing shape of fashion. Plus, I find the gems I do keep stored away are also kept out of mind, and out of rotation. My own jewellery set-up is ever-changing and though its evolution has been positive, I wanted to peek into the minds of OCM accessory mavens Desiree Martin and Jocelyn deMoissac for their display ideas. And because I can't be the only person hoping to elevate my jewellery's life whilst waiting to be worn, I thought we could get inspired together. So, let's.  

Women Empowering Women

I love being a woman. 

I have had the blessing of being supported and inspired by some very amazing women in my life. I feel that International Women's Day is a way of celebrating all women and how far things have come but also still bringing much needed awareness to how far things still must go. I truly believe that if we continue to share, support and advocate for other women here and the rest of the world the more our voices will be heard.

It starts in our community and how we all support each other as women. It also starts at home in how we are raising our children and what core values we are teaching them and showing them. As the mom of three boys I feel a huge sense of responsibility in how I educate them about women. I feel that same sense of responsibility with the women in my life both personally & professionally.

In saying that I am inspired everyday by so many brilliant women in my life. I love my job as I am able to connect with women everyday and learn about their lives and hear their stories. I asked a few women who inspire & uplift me to share what International Women's Day means to them and I love getting to share all their beautiful responses. 

Here is what International Women's Day means to these inspiring women:
