Have an amazing, hopefully sunny weekend! xo

Has anyone else completely fallen in love with Alice + Oliva’s Spring collection? It’s more then darling! It’s full of dashes of color and a huge pull from the 40′s and 60′s! It feels like you’re walking through a garden party when flipping though this season’s look book!
Now I’m quite aware that the price points from Alice + Olive are a little steep. Maybe allowing for one or two pieces from this stunning collection! Don’t let that stop you from looking! Pull ideas and inspiration from these photos while shopping around! Look for floral prints, lots of pastels and a sweet array of mod dresses. If you’re feeling a little more daring, try looking for palazzo pants, bold striped flared trousers and draped jumpsuits.
Don’t forget about all the pretty sequinned dresses! A definite must have for spring and summer weddings!

I am so excited for this week’s giveaway! Not only do I adore this necklace, I own it too! It is one of my favourites! I’m such a sucker for gold dainty necklaces, this one is no exception! You might remember it from my GOLD post, here.
Elizabeth, the designer of this little gem, (a fellow Canadian from Toronto) decided to open an Etsy shop and peruse her love for jewellery after she give birth to her son.
“He made my realize that life is too short to be doing something you aren’t passionate about”- she says. Smart girl! I think we can all relate a little to her!
Elizabeth has been working hard towards building her Etsy shop littleglamour, for almost two years now. She doesn’t seem to stop there! She just recently expanded with a second Etsy shop Crash & Duchess. “Littleglamour has evolved to be simple, minimalist, everyday pieces… while Crash & Duchess brings out the wilder side of me that wants big bold bright!” explains Elizabeth.
Now that you know a little bit about Elizabeth, I’m sure you’ve fallen more in love with this gorgeous sideways cross necklace! Want to enter?

I had a little bit of a sick day today. I relaxed a little and have done everything from bed- including this blog post. A little later in the day than usual, but sick days have no time schedules right?
Let’s talk about my favourite trend this season! One word: PEPLUM. What is a peplum you may ask. Well, what better way to find out then to go straight to the dictionary.
Definition of Peplum: A short overskirt or ruffle attached at the waistline of a jacket, blouse, or dress.
Thank you- The Free Dictionary.com
You’ll see peplums popping up for spring and summer everywhere! I love the peplum addition to simple dress and skirt! Adds such an extra feminine touch. I need to welcome a peplum dress into my closet, soon!

You can probably imagine how excited I was to hear that Ladies’ Home Journal wanted to feature bfrend in their April issue! As excited as I was, I was only expecting a tiny little photo in a corner of one of their pages!
To my surprise, the feature was far more than I expected! Franticly flipping through the pages at 11pm in the middle of the magazine isle in Walmart, I practically screamed when I saw the photo! I love how they styled the hot pink golden cobra amongst all the other gorgeous bracelets! What a perfectly stacked wrist against that gorgeous pink New Bond Street Florance -Kate Spade bag! Wouldn’t you say?
Thank you LHJ for such an exiting opportunity!

Happy Friday! Finally!
Wow it’s been a long week! A great week, but I’m very happy that the weekend is here!
Are you working today? If you’re anything like me, I’m in weekend mode starting first thing in the morning. Counting down the hours till a full work day is done and the weekend has begun! I love to work, and I love to work hard, but there is something about a Friday afternoon that is soooo refreshing! I think you’d all agree with me on this one! :)
Have a great one!

Happy Hump Day! Don’t we all love the middle of the week?
Today I thought I would do something a little different. Something fun, a little challenging but oh so rewarding! To make the day that much more interesting, I want to challenge all of you to a list of 10 things that you should consider! Some easy, some vulnerable and some just simply nice. Pick one or two, five or even all ten! Pick something you normally find hard to fit into your busy day, and make it happen today!
If you’re on twitter use hash tag #10thingsonwednesday to follow along and share what you did! I would love to hear!
1. Complement someone’s outfit today. (Be specific)
2. Buy yourself a treat, any kind of treat for $5.
3. Text your mom and tell her that you love her.
4. Take a picture of something that made you smile today (Instagram the more the merrier!)
5. Close your eyes for 1 min and think of 5 things you are thankful for.
6. Read one chapter of that book that you’ve been trying to make time for.
7. Make time for conversation with a dear friend you miss.
8. Make a fancy dinner tonight.
9. Hug the person sitting next to you.
10. Buy the person behind you their coffee.
Have a great day!

Happy Monday Lovelies!
I’m excited to share another fun find on Etsy with you! The moment I saw these glittery sequinned signs I knew I wanted a letter or two!
Kelsey is the lovely blonde behind these fun block letters called Twisted Twig. Her block letter designs made from paper mache or wood, stand from 8 inches tall to 12 inches high! Pick your favourite neon shades or go glittery with over 200o sequinned letters! I think they would look perfect on my white shelves over my work desk! Or little mini’s as paper weights!
I’m already thinking of some up coming birthdays gifts! And unique decor ideas for up a few bridal and baby showers! How fun!
Make sure to check out Twisted Twig on Etsy! You’ll love it all!
