BOHO Chic-How to get the look

Bring out the Bohemian Chic in you with so many choices of bracelets, jewellery and fashion this spring. A BOHO Chic is carefree, adventurous and daring with a real sense of her own style.

So let’s start step by step with which fashion accessories you want to select to get that BOHO Chic look!

First, the clothes. You want something light, airy and free. Something that says I am comfortable with who I am and where I am in this moment. Remember BOHO chic is all about being true to yourself.

Anyone who knows me knows I love boots and wedges! Well BOHO Chic rocks both. Not only do wedges provide height, which elongates your legs, they are a lot more stable than spike-style heels. And boots are just so comfortable and add such a sense of style. Here are some of my favorite BOHO boots and wedges.

 

Now let’s move on to the jewellery. BOHO Chic means a mix of metals, gemstones, wood and fabrics layered in a fun and trendy way. And the more the better! Get the look here

And, of course, fringes are the biggest accent to any BOHO Chic look. Whether they are on boots, purses or clothes, they are the must have item for the BOHO Chic.

Let’s not forgot body art in the form of temporary glitter tattoos. These tattoos accent the BOHO jewellery perfectly or can be worn without jewellery to add some gold touches to your sunkissed tan.

So why not have some fun putting together your perfect BOHO Chic look!

Tis the season to buy local!

Christmas Blog Pic

As a small business owner, I always support buying locally as much as possible vs purchasing items from the big box stores when making decisions about holiday shopping.

And at this time of year the best way to find as many local artisans and merchants under one roof is to visit some of the local craft shows that are ongoing at this time of year.

There have been some excellent Facebook pages that have been created to help find local artisans and craft shows and Kijiji is an excellent source for this as well.

However I do realize that it is time consuming to review the many craft shows that are taking place throughout Winnipeg so I have done the work for you and have included a list of a few that you may like to attend to help with your holiday shopping this year. I have listed them by date so you can plan when you would like to attend.

How to wear your Shamballa Bracelet.

Shamballa bracelets (sometimes also referred to as disco ball bracelets) are becoming more and more popular as celebrities and the like have started wearing them!

Everyone from Jay Z, Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian to fashion mogul Karl Lagerfield have been photographed wearing this trendy bracelet.

I get many questions from my customers around how to wear the bracelets, specifically how to open them, and how many Shamballa bracelets you should wear at once.

To open your Shamballa bracelet simply pull simultaneously on the last two beads on the bracelet itself. See picture below:

SamballaHowTo

To close your Shamballa bracelet  just pull on the beads on the ends of the strings.

See picture below:

Shamballa To Close

You can certainly wear a single Shamballa bracelet on your wrist but pairing at least 3 Shamballa bracelets in complimentary colors always makes a stunning fashion statement!

Beautiful Shamballas
