So here’s a super quick and easy DIY. As many of you may or may not know, revamping and transforming shoes is kind of my thing! 😛 My baby The Gold Label started as a shoe revamping business in 2010 and quickly expanded. I’m always creating or reconstructing something, so I figured why not share a few tricks and tips with you guys! With the summer months upon us why not spruce up what you have. I hope you enjoy!
Tag me @thegoldlabel on social media to show me any recreations! 🙂

Really easy right?! I’ll try and post a few diy tips every other month.
[ps. I shot and edited this video ALL by myself! Gah..small joys :D..s/o to Lara Smith for low key teaching me everything in years past! I can’t believe I remembered so much..]
Who ever wants summer to end?
I find that the best summer days are spent in a relaxing location with a beautiful view and great food! There has to be great food involved! :p. Mickey’s, located in the Lido complex at Elbow Beach Resort, is the best place to spend a Sunday afternoon. With the restaurant situated right on the beach, it’s hard not to be completely at ease. After a long week, unwinding there on my Sunday afternoon was PERFECTION!

I love birthdays. I love themed birthdays. I love themed birthdays with a set dress code. Don’t you? There’s something super festive about a planned birthday party that I just love. Last week my friend celebrated her birthday at Harbourfront restaurant, and requested that we all wear black. Insert happy emoji here. I LOVE all black shindigs. Is it just me, or does everything look better in black? It’s just so clean cut and always effortlessly on point. My reoccurring gift to this particular friend is snapping shots each year at her birthday celebrations. This year was no different! I had a blast with my friends and thoroughly enjoyed my evening!

On Friday, I had the awesome privilege of touring Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. From the newly renovated rooms to the amazing new restaurants, HP has done a fantastic job at facelifting an old beauty. As many locals, I have so many fond memories here. To see the extensive renovations is quite refreshing. Look at this beautiful new court yard! There’s a new marina, as well as many fun water sports available to the public. Now, if you’re an art lover, the grounds are adorned with so many great pieces. Everything from Andy Warhol to ‘Miffy’ by Tom Sachs. Flowers by Andy Warhol Miffy by Tom Sachs Million dollar pumpkin! Ladies does this print look familiar? Louis Vuitton collaborated with the designer to create some limited edition bags in 2012.

Lastly I got to view the restaurants. I didn’t snap any shots of 1609 or the Crown and Anchor restaurant because people were enjoying lunch when I visited. We all know there’s nothing people love more than having a camera in their face while eating, right? I did manage to get a few of Marcus’. I had my prom in this space! I’m in love with the way they’ve transomed it into this beautiful eatery. The nautical influences are an amazing touch. More amazing artwork; Nelson Mandela’s handprints!
Thanks HP, I had a blast! 🙂

Last night was the 3rd night of the fashion festival here in Bermuda. I attended the local designer’s showcase and was very impressed with the way each designer incorporated elements from the island into their designs. The designers were paired with an industry professional to mentor them through this process. I didn’t capture every collection as the lighting changed and I had the wrong lens :(.. but I did manage to get 4/6. The City of Hamilton in conjunction with Shiona Turini did a fantastic job with displaying local talent and allowing them not only to gain experience but exposure. Enjoy!

No blues here! Apart from being 15 minutes late to work, this Monday was a great start to my week.
The heat in Bermuda is so disrespectful! Minimal, loose clothing is essential! I pulled my huge humidity puffed hair into two braids to keep me cool. A Bermudaful summer is definitely upon us.
Count your blessings, in the heat and all! <3
