There is no more beautiful time of year in Vancouver than the Cherry Blossom Festival, which this year runs April 2-29th! It is the prettiest time of year when the landscape is filled with cotton candy colored puffs that literally make Vancouverites mad with delight! If you don't believe us, you'll have to take a peek at our friend Lele Chan's Instagram account that highlights some of the crazy antics she has witnessed on her street highlighting the lengths people go to to get that perfect photo for the 'gram!
While we haven't gone to those extremes (yet!) we did find away to beat the rain and bring the cherry blossoms indoors with an exquisite floral installation by Dushan Flowers on the cage swing at Prep Beauty Parlour!
We just cant get enough Cherry Blossoms! From the manicure designed by Prep Beauty Parlour...
To the handprinted sakura macarons from Soirette!
Even makeup artist Jasmine Hoffman found the perfect shade of lipgloss for the occasion! It's Anastasia Gloss in Peony, by the way!
If studs are more your thing, we have those too! They are a jewelry wardrobe staple and at just $30 a pair we know you'll want more than one! Shop them in clear crystal at Jeweliette Jewellery, our flagship store!
Even I couldn't resist playing dress up under the pink canopy in another Valencienne creation! It's all about the back details!
The rain didn't actually stop that day (hello, it is Vancouver!) but we did manage to get out eventually! Stay tuned for our outdoor photos coming up in La Vie En Cherry Blossom (Part 2)!
