Blush Pretty Bridal Show + MIYU Giveaway!

Bohemian Chic
As I'm writing this, I'm recovering from a long day in Toronto, where I spent the day at the Blush Pretty Save the Date event!  The BP event was about forecasting wedding trends for the Fall/Winter 2015 season.

The event itself was like a live Pinterest, but with actual planners sharing ideas from make-up looks, to food, and even gift ideas.

I'm always looking for inspiration, and of course I got what I wanted during the media preview. The BP team showcased a few different looks for the upcoming season, and the one that I felt related to me the most was the bohemian look to your left.

It's natural, soft, a little wild and young, and I especially loved the braid band. The 1920's look, was also a close favourite of mine. (Shown below, far left)

From wedding looks to food, Crumb and Berry was also there (in spirit) to cater the event. The macarons and mini cakes were so delicious and darling, and being the foodie that I am, I'm going to do a separate post just on them.

The different looks and styles for the Fall/Winter 2015 season
From food to party favours, MIYU was also onsite, and I felt that their product line related to me the most. As a racer, who is constantly in the gym or on track, I know how important it is to fuel your body for performance and as an added bonus,  you start to look better too. The MIYU philosophy is about addressing skin concerns from the inside out, which was adopted from ancient Chinese medicine. Taking care from within is such an obvious life philosophy but no one ever gets it!

While talking to Connie (MIYU founder), I was introduced to the line of spray on serums and beauty teas. The concept of the pairing is to use them together to hydrate the complexion from the inside out.


Between the two options (Hydrate Mi and De-Stress Mi), the Hydrate Mi was my favourite. The spray felt refreshing and light, I even smelled hints of the floral ingredients in the air too. The tea, which was delicious and deep in flavour on it's own, has anti age-accelerating properties, and electrolytes for hydration.

Now, if you need some de-stressing in your life, go for the De-Stress Mi. Both the spray and tea are peppermint in theme, and it's great for calming inflammations, including cramps!

MIYU party favours are customizable!

  2. Just attended a wedding here. We had hot, delicious meals. The wedding was amazing, everyone had such a great time. The space at Chicago Wedding Venues was elegant and impressive. The coordinator really appears to love her job, she had a smile on the whole day. Even after the wedding ended.
