Kate Spade Partners with West Elm - Heaven!

"Make everyday a Saturday"
- Kate Spade 

Kate Spade Saturday is basically what I aspire to be. Chic and trendy, without breaking the bank. The Kate Spade Saturday Girl is a lady who can eat out at nice places, have a beautiful home, all while looking stylish. A woman's dream, right?

So when I heard that Kate Spade was partnering with West Elm my jaw dropped in excitement. Here two of my absolute favs were coming together to create classic and fun looks I could drool over. 

And so, because it's a Monday in the middle of January, what better time to admire these fun and fashionable looks?

Keeping your Hydrangeas Beautiful!

I love Hydrangeas! They last so long, they are fresh and remind me that summer isn't that far away. 

As much as I love them I haven't always had the best of luck with them. There are times that they wilt the day after I buy them!

Then I learned what do with them. I'm no green thumb but here is what I have learned and so far the proof is in my beautiful arrangement. 

1) Strip all the leaves off, they suck water away from the flowers



2) Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle under running water, this helps the stem absorb water easily



3) Split the stems up about 1/2 and inch. This stops the stem from getting blocked by sap


4) Last step, put the stems in boiling water for 30 seconds -this helps seal your newly cut stems


Ta-Da!
Pretty right?


Happy Friday!

It feels like spring in Edmonton right now! I am so happy about this weather, and I have to keep reminding myself that Canada Day isn't right around the corner, because it certainly feels that way! But, you know, it's January, so I can't get too excited for summer yet.

I came across a lot of beauties this week, so let's get to them! 

  • It's because of posts like this that I am so thrilled to be working out with Jessie Mundell. 
  • So we need to talk about this Kate Spade heart purse:
