What is Fashion?

If you look up “Fashion” in the dictionary, one of its simplest meanings is, “the make, or form of something”. Makes sense… Fashioning something is the way we put items together when we get dressed, and some of us are better at this than others. There are those who want to look trendy, others (more…)

Thank you

A BIG thank you to everyone that came out to the Spring One of A Kind Show in Toronto last week!

Being a small business owner is exciting because you get see the physical results of the energy that you put into your passion.. (more…)

Happy Birthday Dawn!

Today Dawn will be enjoying a well deserved day off (nobody works on their birthday at glamjulz) and maybe basking in some sunshine on a patio enjoying this oddly warm March weather!

Dawn is the greatest.

Wayne and I are so lucky to have her in our professional and personal lives! She’s been (more…)

New friends in Florida

Two weeks away in the Sunshine State!… OK… Maybe not everyone’s cup of tea, but for me… it’s a magical place. (No, not just Disney World… All of Florida!)

I’ve always loved Florida. It was our annual family holiday destination for most of the late 70’s and early 80’s. (Memories of Miami Vice 1984 anyone?) I have the fondest memories of swimming in the ocean with my brother, our Oma giving us change for Orange Crush and Mountain Dew from the hotel pop machines, Flamingos and Pelicans. When I was growing up, my Mom and Dad both (more…)

Wedding Traditions

It’s that exciting time of year again, where many brides are out and about at Wedding Shows and Bridal shops searching for all of the perfect details to make their special day extra magical.

I thought it might be fun to highlight some of the traditions that most of us follow and tell you about where they came from.

Spring Colour Trends

Spring is in the air! Even though most of us are still cocooning at home with fuzzy slippers and a hot chocolate, we are also counting the days to the sun and fun that is right around the corner.  I’ve been spending many of these cold days in my toasty cozy studio creating a collection that is sure to warm you glam girls up for spring.

Fashion Trends are moving towards brighter hues mixing with their soft pastel counterparts.   We’re seeing it everywhere, even (more…)

A Great Reason to visit Fenlon Falls

I’m sure there are some of you that spend the summer months cottaging in the beautiful Kawartha’s, perhaps you live there, or maybe you have enjoyed the area as a day trip, as it is only a 2 hour drive from Toronto. If you haven’t been, it’s time to go… and I’ll tell you why! (more…)

Why is red the colour of love?

I know that I’ve always been attracted to red. A piece of red furniture in a room looks sophisticated, a red door on a house always looks welcoming, a red sweater makes me feel confident and red high heeled shoes make me look powerful. So what is it about red that gets us all hot ‘n’ bothered for Valentines day? Here are some fun facts (more…)

The Bib Necklace

What is this uber-fashionable necklace that is hitting all the runways this season?  Why are they calling it “the bib“? Just makes me think that I’m wearing something that’s going to be a food catcher.  My Husband, Wayne has something like that, and he calls it A Beard!

Believe it or not, the Bib style Necklace dates back to Egyptian times.  A style that both Nefertiti and Cleopatra adorned themselves in.  These necklaces were absolutely stunning and sparkled beautifully against their linen gowns and sun kissed skin.  They were hand made from hammered metals and set with precious Stones. The Egyptian Royalty were even buried with their jewels because they believed they could use them in the after life.
