A few weeks a go a few lovely ladies from Glory Juice Co. threw an amazing cocktail party for us in our studio! (see post here). We were completely blown away by how tasty these cocktails were! We are all big sangria fans and this was hands down the best sangria we've ever had. They used their #8 juice which was so fresh and tasty.
This is one of my favourite hairstyles this summer! It's fairly simple if you are comfortable with french braiding. It can be a great everyday look to keep your hair off your face when it's hot out, or it can be dressed up for something more formal. The inspiration for this hairstyle came from following @amberfillerup on instagram (she has amaazzzzing hair!), you can see her video tutorial for this style here.
Step 1: Part your hair on the side.
Step 2: Separate the bang section, from the rest of your hair.
Step 3: Divide the bang section into 3 sections.
Step 4: Start to french braid the bang section down, keeping it as close to your face as possible.
Step 5: Continue to add small sections to your braid until you reach your neck, then add the rest of your hair into the three sections evenly.
Step 6: Braid the rest of your hair and secure with an elastic.
Step 7: Now, of the most important steps in this tutorial is loosening the braid (Shown below). This step, will take you from looking like a german girl in 50 First Dates to looking like you have beautiful thick mermaid hair.
Don't be afraid to pull on the braid, you want to make it look loose and relaxed.
All of us are fans of fun bright lipstick colours and that can be hard to find with all natural lipsticks and glosses. But we tried out some of the Ilia colours from the oh-so-sweet Garcy over at EcoDiva and we are loving these bright summer shades! They are vibrant, organic, and natural. It's nice to feel good about what your putting on your face.
Tell us below, What's your go to lip colour this season?

I am LOVING neon this Summer. Despite the fact that I don't look completely convinced in this photo ;) I've been searching all over for a good neon pink and orange lipstick, and I'm loving this pink, it's bright with a little bit of shine. I'm loving it. Purchase Neon Angel Here.
I haven't worn gloss in years and usually it wouldn't be my first pick, but I really loved this one! It is thick and stay true to the colour in the bottle which is what I like about it. Normally I feel like most glosses end up looking pretty sheer but this one kept it's fun bright purple hue the whole time I had it on. Purchase Back to Life Here.
Did you get the memo that Sunday was international ice cream day!? We somehow missed it but thankfully we went for ice cream last week and ended up with blue tongues and sticky hands. It's always worth it though! We went to one of Vancouver's best, La Casa Gelato which is always the hardest decision you ever have to make (ummm 218 flavours?!)
Our friends over at Arvo Wear sent us these amazing watches last month and we are loving them! They want to give away one of this White Time Sawyer watch to one of our readers, so go ahead, follow Arvo and T&T on facebook, then comment below telling us your favourite ice cream flavour this Summer to be entered to win!
Tegan and I got to go on a trip to Palm Desert this past month with our family. It was such a lovely and relaxing time. You know when you just ache for a break but you don't realize it until you are there and deep into relaxation mode? That is what happened for all of us.
We were able to stop, let out a big sigh, and just drop everything so that we could be still and enjoy ourselves. It is so important to take time to reboot, break away from the internet world, read some books, indulge in some comfort foods, and hang out with the ones you love most.
I always have such a great time shopping in California. There is never a shortage of sales and the clothes have a bit of a different style than the ones back home.
After trying on around 15 pairs.. (NOT even kidding, I felt outrageous) I finally found the pant-overalls I was looking for at Marshalls.
I have been on the search for wedge strappy sandals and I was so excited to find the perfect pair at Ross for only $15. It was such a great deal that Tegan even bought the same pair.
