the SEER

I read this scripture in Proverbs “And the complacency of fools will destroy them,” and in a matter of minutes a friend sent me a link to an article about being active for 2017.

Coincidence? I think not.

Expectancy

I walked into the new year with expectancy. Honestly, in many situations you have to take charge of your destiny and faith it ’til you make it. It’s imperative to your growth! Two words have stood out to me since the year began, and that’s CONSISTENT and PERSISTENT. Don’t they mean the same thing? 

Print Mixer

It’s been forever!

My apologies! Since my last post, I have moved countries, set up my new place and started school. Super busy right? Hopefully this post will make it up.

Pistachio Mint

…shades of green & blue + a lot of print mixing= perfect for cupmatch

For some reason, I felt like a modern day Marilyn Monroe- bronzed island edition 🙂

Hey Guys!

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! 🙂

You’ll need:

// Flip flops

// Scissors

// Scarf

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..]

Bermuda Fashion Festival

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!

I didn’t get a chance to snap my own photos of the beautiful establishment, because…I was starving. With one google search my problem was solved. The first and last photos were found within that search.
