Okay I was so excited to get asked to be a part of Mike and Erins big day!! I have known Mike for years so when his now wife approached me I was ecstatic!!
Mike and I knew eachother way back when we were really athletic and sprint kayaking and always dressed in spandex so it was nice to be a part of his day and see the lovely photos of the two of them all dressed up!
I don’t think he could have picked a better match as Erin is such a gorgeous person both inside and out!
Mike and Erin got married at Carl’s catering in Brampton their hair was done at an extremely cute salon called Erin Melinda Hair studio which is located in Pickering. Photography was done by Photography by Rowen Make up done by Moi (Bride, Bridal party and Mother of the Groom; Mike didn’t let me do his unfortunately). All make up was airbrushed with my favourite brand Kett Cosmetics. If you wish to know more about airbrushing you can ask me or you can always check out Kett.
Below are a few photos of their day for you to look at.
Erin thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day, it was great to hang out with you and the girls!! I am so happy for the two of you as you clearly are a perfect match!!
It has been an extremely long time since I wrote my last blog. I have lots of catching up to do!
I am going to start with Joanna and her amazing family!! Joanna lives in Australia with the core of her family being here in the GTA.
Her and her now husband Mark got married at the gorgeous Deer Creek Golf Course in Ajax. This is a gorgeous venue if you guys have not seen it make sure to click the link and check it out!
Everyone got ready at their parents house in Port Perry and I had a blast doing the make up for them. I was honoured to finally meet Joanna as her sister has been a big part of my life for the past few years.
This English family definitely knows how to have a good time and I had many laughs while hanging out with them and Joanna was kind enough to bring me back a dairy milk vegemite chocolate bar…really it wasn’t as bad as i thought it was going to be!
The ladies were all airbrushed and their make up was fairly natural. Their hair was done by Christina LeBlanc who now owns her own salon called the Hairitage House click the link to go to her facebook page.
Please take a look at this gorgeous day. All photos were done by Lindsay Nemeth Photography

Okay so I have started to talk about Isagenix and unfortunately I have not kept up with my promise about the non stop writing about it. So now I am starting a challenge with a team of people on the 6th of this month..oh man that is soon!!
So for those who do NOT know what Isagneix is I will answer that question for you and after I am done answering in a different blog I will tell you MY experience with both the 30 day and the 9 day paks that I tried and hopefully people will comment on their experiences as well 🙂
This is a little bit of help by one of the most informed women on isagenix and and personal trainer who even though in different province as me has helped me a lot and continues to whenever I need it. Rebecca you rock and thank you for this!
People do ask me all the time, what exactly is Isagenix? This is the best description I have ever seen:
Isagenix is an organic “food system” that takes a balanced lifestyle approach to better supporting the body’s natural cleansing and replenishing needs. It is NOT a “diet” BUT a sustainable “lifestyle”, NOT a “weight-loss program” BUT a “body composition system” that builds muscle while burning fat, and NOT a “fast or detox program” BUT a “nutritional cleanse” that supports the body’s natural cleansing/replenishing processes with whole-food nutrition. As the world’s first & ONLY “total body, deep cellular nutritional cleansing and replenishing system” it delivers many unique and diverse benefits for EVERY single cell and organ system from athletes to non-athletes. Being such a comprehensive system adaptable to ALL ages and goals it is difficult to simplify too much beyond this. What I love most are the results; more energy, better sleep, more lean muscle, faster recovery, stronger performance and less body fat!! Transforming lives, one person at a time!!
So that is what Isagenix is all about!!
Check out the next blog for the story on my experiences
Okay so being a part of this day meant so much to me! Elena has to be one of the sweetest people I have ever met in my life!! She has the biggest and kindest heart one could ever know! From meeting her now HUSBAND Brad only once I can tell he is the same way and they are perfect for each other!
It was such a relaxed morning at Michaels hair studio in Pickering village as the girls got their hair and make up done! My cousin youbymia was the photographer on this day and I know she was as thrilled as I was to be asked to be apart of their day!
Elena and Brad Congrats and I will be sending you another huge congrats as soon as that cute bundle of joy is born!!!! I couldn’t be happier for you guys!
Thank you for letting us Purdy Girls be apart of your amazing day!!
Okay so this blog is about my gorgeous cousin Mia Purdy and her Husband Darryl Smith’s amazing wedding! I have been waiting for photos of this wedding since the day of so that I could make this post!! Soo needles to say I’m excited for this post and I can’t wait to share their photos with you.
Mia and Dares wedding was it a DIY wedding they put lots of thought and effort into this and worked extremely hard to make it a perfect day!! I will not share how any of this is done you will have to just take a look at the photos!! Mia, Darryl, their families and the wedding party went up the day before and got the venue all ready for the big day. And seeing it all come together was amazing!
Okay so being in the wedding party of this one I will say when Mia first took us to the venue to see it I was in love right away with it, it couldn’t be more perfect. Then she decided to talk about bunting and all the different spots she wanted it the picture that me and the other bridesmaid had in mind well let’s just say we poked fun a bit. However my dearest Mia AMAZING job on the bunting as it honestly made the venue look unreal!!
They picked an unreal venue that I am officially obsessed with and I am sure you all will be as well when you look at the photos. They got married in Milton at Country Heritage Park. The venue was super accommodating and they honestly felt like old time friends!! It is a gorgeous Barn that actually does tractor rides around the gorgeous property (I think my nephew was on it most of the day). As you take a tour of the venue there are old barns, blacksmith stores, general stores horses it is unreal! The ceremony was upstairs in the loft area Jer (Mia’s brother) made an arch way for them and it fit in perfectly…just looked amazing!! Below on the main floor was where dinner and the big party happened afterwards! Mia is extremely creative and incorporated all the things that they loved into the look of the wedding coke bottles being one of them :).
So I’m pretty sure you can guess I did the make up for her wedding. So we woke up in the morning put our amazing robes on that Mia had bought us and I went to work!! Airbrushing of course was used and then everyone had a different look.
The photographers were amazing and fit right in with everyone perfectly! Young Hearts Photography is who took all the photos of Mia and Darryl’s day and they did an unreal job!!
Congrats to Mia who is not only my cousin but has become one of my closet friends I am so happy for you and Dare! To Dare Welcome to our family offically yet again! Love ya both!!
So usually I just show a few photos of my make up but because this was a DIY and because of my obsession with the venue there will be a few photos of everything all mixed into the slide show below.
Okay so on August 11th I got to work with a bride who is very close to my heart and I am so honoured to have been asked to do Amanda’s make up for her day! Amanda is a long time friend of about umm..about 26 years or so and I am extremely happy for her!!
Everything about the wedding was beautiful!! The ceremony and reception were at Rockway Glen Golf Course and Estate Winery and it is gorgeous there!! The ceremony was outside it rained a little bit but it actually made the ceremony even better (I’m determined it was just Alex her dad poking in to say hi and shedding a tear of how proud he is of her)!
Make up wise I did Amanda, 3 of her bridesmaids and Brian’s mother. To do these girls make up was like a treat for me here I have 4 sporty girls who I have known through sports and never seen a tad of make up on them (maybe mascara) so to see them airbrushed with lashes on was a new thing for me and I’m sure even for some of them! I had a blast doing their make up and getting to be part of the day!
Amanda and Brian I love you guys and I am so happy for the both of you! Congrats!!
Below are just a few sneak peaks of photos that I got through some of Amanda’s friends there will be more to look at later I just got too excited 🙂
Two weekends ago I got to meet up with the lovely Katy and meet her fiance Jason. They were doing their engagement shoot so I met Katy at Mikes hair salon in Pickering Village and we did her trial run for her wedding :)!
Katy’s make up was Very natural for the shoot; it was airbrushed (as usual with me) and we used MAC soft and gentle in the inner corner of her eye as well as under her brow bone, MAC woodwinked (love this colour) and used expresso on the outer corner of her eye.
It was a great morning and I had a blast getting to know Katy better and can not wait till her special day!!
