You Definitely Need To Bring This To Your Beauty Trial

Along with the oodles of inspirational beauty pins you have been collecting, you will want to bring your bridal accessories to your hair trial.

Why you ask? Because having the items to work with at the trial allows your stylist to create a style that truly shows off the piece and finishes off your final look. You don't want her (or him!) spending hours designing a hairstyle only to be surprised on the day of with a new element, do you?

Having the piece in hand is key to determining the best possible placement for maximum impact. Heck, you didn't spend all this time and money picking out the perfect piece only to have it not show up in photos!

Wedding Halo, Hair Trial.jpg

When it comes to side combs, we usually recommend that they be placed on the RIGHT side of the hairstyle, as this is the side that your guests will see the most of during the ceremony and be in most of the photos. However, some stylists we know like styling the hair to the LEFT side of the face because they say they say the hair just looks better on that side. See? That's one of the details you can determine at the trial and you will need the accessory to decide for yourself which way you feel the most beautiful!

We know sometimes it can be hard to choose a piece and often we see brides torn between two styles in our shop that they really love. So as an extra service to our brides who have committed to purchasing with us, we offer them to take two pieces to their trial to ease their selection process. 

Our shop, Jeweliette Jewellery is open Tuesday to Saturday 10:30am - 6pm 

Appointments are not necessary, but you are welcome to make one so we know to reserve that time for you!

Love the Sarah Halo featured in the post? It is available in our online shop!

Elsa Corsi

It could be said that Elsa Corsi was destined to become a jewellery designer. Heralding from a long line of Italian shoemakers turned merchants, it was only natural that she inherit a passionate eye and skill to pursue aesthetic beauty. It was in 2006, to celebrate her own wedding that she came out with a dedicated collection of bridal jewellery. Clients were attracted to the vintage technique mastered in the collection and were thrilled to have their own piece of heirloom jewellery. Her bridal and special occasion jewellery has been sought out by the city’s top stylists and fashion editors for photo shoots and Real Brides wearing Elsa Corsi jewellery are regularly featured online and in print in Real Weddings, Weddingbelles, Grace Ormonde and Wedluxe Magazine.
 

Fabulous Friends Night Out

If you follow us on Instagram, then you might of caught our story of a recent night out with The Girls at Joey's Restaurant. Everyone kept asking what the occasion was...a birthday? A celebration? What? Nope, just Thursday

We also got to resurrect on of our original chokers from the 90's as well as Tasseled Necklace we had hiding in our jewelry box. That's the fun thing about jewelry, it's not about wearing it everyday or how often you wear it - it's about being able to call upon pieces when the mood or the occasion calls for it. Bonus points for when it reinvents what you already have in your closet which can be even more satisfying than getting a new dress!

Elsa Corsi,  Jasmine Hoffman, Hong Photography

To start we feasted on a family style presentation of appetizers that included Night Market Curry Dip, Hawaiian Tuna Tacos and Osaka Style Pressed Salmon Sushi. Note to self- next time order more of the Pressed Sushi...it was to die for!

Food Photography Vancouver, Hong Photography, Joey Restaurants

And then we feasted some more! You can never go wrong with Steak Frites. Unless you are a vegetarian, then it would not be the right choice. Good thing JOEY Restaurant has some options for both Vegetarians and Celiacs, who were also at the table.

Food Photography Vancouver, Hong Photography, Joey Restaurants Vancouver

Cheers to these custom, crafted Elderflower Collins Cocktails! They were the perfect color to match our table arrangements from Sunflower Florist. Yes, we brought our own flowers...because that's just how we roll.

You would think that Jasmine had planned her nails and sequined Little Pink Dress to match our drinks as well, but pinky swear that was just a happy coincidence!

It's aways great when Jenny De Jong comes out to play! She is usually hard at work behind the scenes at Countdown Events or working on her collection of custom party supplies at Shop Tineke 

Elsa Corsi, Jenny De Jong, Hong Photography, Joey Restaurant

And these two! They are just the cutest! Diana is what we like to call a BRIEND. A briend is what you get when one of your past brides becomes one of your lifelong friends! Get it? Bride + Friend = Briend. 

Little Pink Dress, Hong Photography, Joey restaurant

Diana and Hannah from Little Pink Dress Design. Hannah made Jasmine's sparkly little number, pictures below and Diana's daughter christening outfit- now that's what we call range! 

Little Pink Dress, Hong Photography, Joey restaurants, Vancouver

What do you get when a microblader, a costume designer and a makeup artist walk into a room? Three super stylish women, obviously! Sarah just opened a chic Gastown Micro-pignemtation Loft and Claudia Da Ponte is one of Vancouver's most sought after stylists and costume designers for television.

Sarah Killen, Claudia Da Ponte, Jasmine Hoffman, Hong Photography, Joey restaurants

If you are curious about Micro-Pigmentation and how to "wake up with makeup" as she calls it, check out her studio, KILLENIT STUDIO where she combines her two great loves...tatooing and makeup!

Best Reds With Great Friends on www.ilikeherstyle.com {Part 2}

What an honor it was to be included in a follow up to our Fabulous Friends Creating Beautiful Business feature in the print issue of I Like Her Style Vancouver with Best Reds With Great Friends along side Jasmine Hoffman and Stephanie Lewis.

www.elsacorsi.com/blog

This feature was all about Red Wine and Red Lips! As Jasmine knows, we never wear a red lip however she assured us that she had the perfect red in her kit just for us! Exciting! Apparently, everyone has a perfect shade depending on their complexion and undertone.

Ours was Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in "Beso", a beautiful true red that looks great with any skin tone. Well, if it didn't have us channeling our inner Gwen Stefani! 

If you are ready to find your perfect red, you can book a makeup lesson with Jasmine Hoffman which includes a full face lesson, colour theory, take-home face chart and shopping lesson on how to choose the best brands and build your makeup kit.

Fabulous Friends Creating Beautiful Business on www.ilikeherstyle.com {Part 1}

Congratulations to our friends at I Like Her Style Vancouver who just launched their first print issue today! In celebration of that, we are sharing a recent editorial they showcased featuring US called Fabulous Friends Creating Beautiful Businesses. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

http://ilikeherstylevancouver.com/2016/12/womanspired-lookbook-fabulous-friends-creating-beautiful-businesses/ Featuring Elsa Corsi Jasmine Hoffman and SL MISS GLAM

When Jasmine Hoffman called us up to do the shoot, we agreed and thought as usual we would just drop the jewels off to the location and be on our way. However, just days before in our group text we received a message asking us to arrive with hair and makeup done. Wait, what! I was going to be in the shoot? Well, I could not think of a better way to spend the afternoon than with these dolls!

By now, if you have been following the blog and our Instagram you will recognize Jasmine Hoffman. I am often spotted at her place getting my makeup done, doing photoshoots, and going to events or up to general shenanigans with her.

The beautiful brushes that are often spotted in her hands are the lovely creation of Stephanie Lewis aka Miss Glam. Stephanie is a YouTube Queen, Beauty Mogul and every bit as sweet as her pretty pink princess online personality!

Elsa Corsi's Steal Worthy Party Must-Haves!

I'd like to think I've learned a thing or two since this birthday party picture was taken. One being, that even if you loose at hot potato don't cry until you are let back in the game! True StoryAnd also, there is no better way to spend your special day than surrounded by a bunch of your besties! 

This year was a milestone year, and I've rounded up 7 Steal Worthy Party Must-Haves that made my day extra special!

VENUE, LA PENTOLA

VENUE, LA PENTOLA

FLOWERS, FLOWERZ

FLOWERS, FLOWERZ

BALLOONS

BALLOONS

1. Choose an already beautiful venue for dinner and then add your own special touches. These flowers from FLOWERZ (thanks Chella and Katie!) and a bevy of balloons brought in by Countdown Events truly set the stage for a festive evening at La Pentola located in the Opus Hotel.

SELFIE FRAME, FLOWER FACTORY

2. Add a festive prop, like one of Flower Factory's Signature Selfie Frames for your guests to have little fun with during picture time.

CAKE, LE GATEAU BAKESHOP

CAKE, LE GATEAU BAKESHOP

3. Big Birthdays NEED a Big Cake! I always get mine from Le Gateau Bakeshop. This one with layers of rich chocolate cake filled with fresh raspberries and mascarpone cream, was truly EPIC!

4. A cheeky cake topper! I got two from Shop Tineke since I wasn't sure about including it in the photos since it would thwart my it's time to start lying about my age plans, but in the end I decided age ain't nothing but a number! 

CAKE TOPPER, SHOP TINEKE

5. Such a bonus that La Pentola also had this amazing feature wall that we could take pictures in front of! It's Love Baby! Created by local graphic design artist Oliver Fletcher, the typography is the same style as the restaurants new branding, which celebrates a casual, cheeky and playful side of the restaurant. Art installations will be updated seasonally, showcasing Vancouver artists and giving guests a thought-provoking piece to enjoy.

IT'S LOVE BABY! DRESS, MASKA MODE

6. Every Birthday Girl Needs a #GlamSquad! Mine was Jasmine Hoffman (makeup) and Courtney Brands (hairstyling). And since it was my birthday, we added some Veronica Gomes hair extensions.

Valentine's Love

In the spirit of V-Day, we thought it would be apropos to do a boudoir post! Sure, it's the sexiest day of the year but why stop there? A boudoir photo session is a great way to keep the love going all year round and makes the perfect wedding, birthday or just-because gift for that special someone in your life! YOU! (But we don't think your guy will complain either *winks*)

As if you need an excuse to get pampered and feel empowered, a dreamy photo session with Nomo Akisawa of Simply Sweet Photography and make-up by Jasmine Hoffman is the perfect time to get all dolled up and embrace your unique beauty.

Bridal Boudoir Photoshoot Vancouver
And don’t think that you have to be a perfect 0 to do boudoir, look like a Victoria’s Secret model, or be as young. Boudoir is for every woman every shape & size, every age, and beauty is truly in everyone. You just have to leave it up to the photographer to embrace it. Boudoir is for the every day average woman – you DO NOT have to be a model.
— Nomo Akisawa, Photographer
image.jpg
Don’t be nervous to do one. I will guide and pose you, and use my creative eye to get all the right angles. You don’t walk in a model, but by the end of the session, I promise that you will feel like one! Stop giving yourself excuses as to why you can’t do one. Just do it!
