'All About You'

When Kaylee contacted me with an opportunity to model this stunning fall maxi dress by Shop Teal Garcia, I knew I was down for whatever it was she had in mind! When I found out that would be Golden Hour photos at a Beach I was all the more excited (knowing I had not spent nearly as much time at the Beach this summer as I had planned at the start of the Summer)!

I will be keeping this short & sweet, but I do have so many things to share with you including BIG changes (or metamorphosis) coming ~ 
Until then I hope that you take some time for yourself, Slow Down, embrace the New Season & all that is has to offer!
Work Hard 
Plan Hard
Accept Cosmic Influences. 

All my love & gratitude

6 Favourite Autumn Lipsticks 2018

Lipstick is by far my favourite cosmetic product! I love to switch up the colours, and tones for different seasons! Bold for Autumn, Pastel for Spring, & Bright for Summer & Winter! 

While this is not a Cosmetic Blog; as we come out of Summer & Wedding Season, my business has certainly been leaning more into the Cosmetic side of things! I used to spend so much time overthinking what 'niche' I should attempt to fit my Blog or Business into, The reality is,(like lipstick shades throughout the year); It's very much a transitional process & one that I have decided to embrace instead of run from!

Below are my Go-To lipstick shades as we head into Fall this year! Most are BOLD, but I did add in a Fun Metallic Pink, as well as my Go-To Everyday Lipstick as well! ALL are made by brands that are economically & environmentally responsible & Cruelty FREE Brands!

It's Very Exciting to Work With People Who Inspire You!

Collaboration over Competition has always been one of my biggest goals since starting into business. I am very blessed to have worked alongside so many talented women, some of whom I have known since early childhood, like my newest business & collaboration partner - Sarah Scharbach. Whom I met for the first time WAY back in the 6th grade! She is kind beyond measure & genuine to the core. Without Further ado- I am stolked to have her introduce herself to you all & share a little bit of her styling history!
Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I am the newest member of the Upcy Styling Team. I have been a hairstylist for nearly 10 years. I worked at a salon in Ottawa for 6 years. I then had my son and made the decision to work from home and doing more freelance work. This has allowed me to continue my passion of hairstyling while getting to spend time with my son.
I am so excited to become a member of the styling team and look forward to helping you with all of your hair styling needs!
