Team glamjulz = Family

If I can think of one person who everyone would love to work for, it would be Sir Richard Branson.  He treats his employees well and in turn they treat him and his business well.

Last Friday I returned from being away in Florida for four weeks.  This is an annual trip that I take with my Mom.  We enjoy some holiday time and I spend most of my days there networking, putting on trunk shows and showing my glamjulz collection to beautiful boutiques.

This year I feel extremely proud of Dawn, Natasha and Maggie.  They all used their skills to manage day to day challenges at the studio and keep things running smoothly.  They all went through their lists of accomplishments with me when I returned and all I had to do (more…)

Purple – Inspired by Prince

“Dearly beloved we are gathered here today to get through this thing called LIFE”

Purple is so vibrant, people who love it are said to be the most artistic among us.  Of course this colour is all about our man Prince.  This man is my final late great inspiration for the 2017 spring collection.

He was mysterious, naturally gifted and believed in (more…)

Black, White & Nude – Inspired by Debbie Reynolds

“I gave it all that I had, and it’s gratifying that others seem to be receiving it so well.”

Debbie Reynolds, grateful, humble and so classy.  The woman had boundless energy and never gave up.

No wonder I had to include her as a big inspiration in my 2017 spring collection.

The mixture of black, white and a touch of nude screams Hollywood Glamour.  Don’t we all need a little bit of that in our wardrobe?  Especially with the perfect red lipstick!  You know there is a perfect (more…)

Neutral – Inspired by Glenn Frey

“I like the way your sparkling earrings lay, Against your skin, it’s so brown”

These lyrics make me melt every time I hear them.

The neutral colour combination is inspired by so many beautiful elements of earth.  Sand dunes, shells, a pink sunset and (more…)

Red, Yellow & Aqua Green – Inspired by Florence Henderson


“I don’t have to be logical – I’m a Mother”

Wise words from Florence Henderson, television’s most loved Mom – Carol Brady, the star of the Brady Bunch show.

I’m happy to share with you another spring 2017 colour combination.  This one inspired by this TV and real life Mom.  The colours honour Florence’s personality both on and off screen.  The red represents unconditional motherly love, the touch of yellow the (more…)

The Story of glamjulz & The Ladybird Animal Sanctuary

Wayne has always loved animals and had been trying to talk me into getting a dog (or a monkey) for years. Now, I have to admit, that I didn’t grow up with an animal at home, and didn’t really understand the connection that human beings could have with a pet.

After my Dad passed away in 2012, Wayne thought it would be the perfect time for us to get a new four legged friend. I finally agreed (and I wasn’t going to let him get a monkey) and so, just before Christmas, we adopted a 5 year old Jug (Jack Russel/Pug mix) rescue dog from a foster family.(Many of you have already met Boink or have seen her modeling glamjulz on all of our social media pages.)


Iridescent – Inspired by Zsa Zsa Gabor

Iridescent – Inspired by Zsa Zsa Gabor

I never get tired of iridescent beads.  Whatever I can use them in I will.  Aurora Borealis is always magical and always enamouring.  Much like dear Zsa Zsa Gabor.

This colour combination takes me right back to my childhood.  Particularly watching the Lawrence Welk Show at my Oma’s house.  I was crazy about the Tiny Bubbles! Oma had a fancy housecoat that was a pastel shimmery pink and she always let me wear it when I came for sleepovers.  I felt so extravagant in it, and loved to imitate Zsa Zsa when (more…)

Blue – Inspired by David Bowie

Blue shows up every season.  We can’t seem to live without it.  We love it in all shades and most people will tell you it’s their favourite colour.

Have you ever wondered why?  I did my research and there is some pretty deep meaning behind this colour.  Apparently, blue is the (more…)

Green – Inspired by Carrie Fisher


This weekend brave men and women all over the world rallied together to support the Women’s March.  Carrie Fisher was celebrated and she (more…)

Multi – Inspired by George Michael

Oh yes, I am totally pumped about introducing my first colour combination for Spring 2017!!

Every season I think, hasn’t every variation of the multi colour combination been done?  It’s been 16 years of glamjulz!  Every season I proudly prove myself WRONG!

Speaking of proud, this colour combination is inspired by just that, pride!  Pride in who we are, not only as individuals but as a society.

George Michael was the inspiration for this colour palette.

Losing George Michael on Christmas day was (more…)
