Perfect Thank You Cards with Minted

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links for products I genuinely love! Although I partnered with Minted.com for this post, my opinion remains my own.

I love tangible things, like stationery. I love sending out real Christmas cards, I have a huge stash of beautiful note cards and enjoy picking out birthday cards for friends and family. I really enjoyed picking out my wedding stationery and even designing some myself. A few years ago, one of my friends sent me a beautiful thank you card for her wedding. I remembering flipping it over and noticing that it was from Minted. Even though I wasn’t engaged yet, I remember making a mental note to check out Minted when the time came.

Fast forward a couple of years later, and here we are! Minted.com is a website where you can pick out unique designs for cards, address labels, invitations, and so much more. They work with independent designers and even have their own designers on staff to whip up some custom designs for you, if you so desire. This year, Minted has branched out into the decor market for the holidays. They have gorgeous printed tree skirts and stocking with custom name plates. They even have cozy throws and throw pillows to make your living room extra festive.

I’m SO excited for Christmas this year! It’s my first year having my own place to decorate, and it’s also my first Christmas as a married (!) lady. Canadian Tire has a fantastic holiday collection featuring different colour trends..

Alpine White

Dreaming of a white Christmas? This collection is for you! Snow topped Christmas trees, soft woolen ornaments, laser cut lanterns, oh my.

Blue Holiday

I’ll be a beautiful blue Christmas with this selection. Lights are lit with a cool hue, and blue, white and blue complement each other.

Bright and Merry

Do you love colour? Look no further than the bright collection, popping with neon blues and pinks. This could be perfect to decorate the kids room, or to accent your living room with something a little different! The wrapping paper and pretty ribbons will definitely make the gifts under your tree pop.

Glittering Gold

To me, gold screams Christmas! It’s my favourite collection of the bunch. I love the pretty golden feather garlands, shimmering gold ornaments, and all the different shades of gold, bronze and rose gold. I have a bit of an obsession with rose gold, so I love the ornaments and the geometric vases.

Stunning Silver

I know I said that gold is my favourite, but silver is a close second. The silver collection includes pretty silver star garlands, festive cushions and garlands that say “fa la la,” and beautiful geometric trees. The silver leaf wreath is one of my favourite items of the entire Canadian Tire collection.

EDIT Expo for Design & Innovation

EDIT

The EDIT Expo for Design is almost here, and Toronto hasn’t seen anything like it. Taking over an abandoned factory, this immersive expo runs from September 29th to October 8th.

Design visionaries from across the globe will gather in Toronto’s East Harbour (formerly Unilever Soap Factory) to manifest 150,000-square-feet and five separate floors into a 360-degree immersive and playful experience.Thought-provoking installations, interactive programming, stimulating speakers and immersive pavilions will explore how the powerful intersection of design, innovation and technology can provide solutions to the world’s greatest challenges and help shape the future for all people.

There are 50 exhibits to explore and 125 speakers over the 10 days. Admission is $15. Here’s what I’m looking forward to seeing the most!

SPEKTRA (Ryerson) An installation that detects motion and a green screen reacts in an interesting way and projects visuals as more people come into the space.

Supertree Grove: In the heart of Singapore lies Gardens by the Bay –– a 110-hectare nature park and the home of the legendary Supertree Grove. I’m hoping that they recreate this in the factory!

Ikea Impossible Meats: It looks and tastes like a burger, but what is it? It uses 75% less water and requires 95% less land to produce.

Reversío: Step into an immersive field that softens the boundaries of space and sensations.

Mickey Mouse’s Home of the Future: Mickey Mouse’s home of the future is a fully functional shipping container home inspired by the most beloved Disney character of all time.

Hot Process Dispersion: Freed from labours of work and wishing each other a last farewell, factory machinery come alive for one last hurrah before their final sentence.

Check out the entire list of installations, exhibitions, speakers and projects on their website. I can’t wait to explore!

Indochino Made to Measure Suits for Weddings

IMG_4952(1)

My wedding is coming up in less than 60 days! One of the most challenging aspects of my wedding for me has been menswear. Menswear is not my forte, so I was happy to leave suit selection up to the experts! I’ve been dying to use Indochino, and this wedding is my chance.

Indochino is a made to measure menswear brand. Customers are able to choose colours, fabric, suit lining, lapel style and more. Men can visit a showroom in Toronto or Vancouver in Canada. At the showroom, you can see sample suits, colours and fabrics. You can also get custom shirts made.

As you can image, Indochino is super popular for weddings. Made to measure suits are perfect for the groom and groomsmen. There are tons of fabrics and colour to choose from. I can’t wait to show you what our custom suit looks like when it’s ready! In the meantime, I’ve gathered some of my favourite wedding looks from Indochino below. (more…)
