On the Job

My day on the job might look a little different than a lot of people. Working for myself often means staying indoors, most times I’m wearing my “day time pjs” and I seldom get to stretch my office apparel muscles. Sometimes though, I like to work at a quiet coffee shop. Its pretty important to get outside when so much of your job requires you stay indoors and away from people. However, a few weeks ago, I made my way to Toronto for a full work day with my pal Erica and I took the opportunity to dress the part. Ps, she took these photos!

High Tea

Oof, its good to be back! I was having major issues with my domain for a few days and I’ve finally ironed that out. If you haven’t noticed, we’re now officially parked at TonsaBlush.com! I’m slowly moving towards rebranding completely to Tonsa Blush, and tackling my domain was one of the biggest steps. Everything will automatically redirect to the new domain if you’re trying to access BHRL.com!

Now that I’ve covered the logistics, let’s talk fashion! Valentine’s might have come and gone, but no so in my heart. My dear friend (and sometimes photographer) Chloe and I spent a very fancy Galentine’s day at local high tea. We’ve been talking about going for ages, and Galentine’s seemed like the perfect opportunity. If you’ve never been to high tea, I highly suggest it! The whole experience was magical, relaxing and I felt very regal the whole time.

Happy Galentine’s Day!

Happy Galentine’s day from my gals to yours! If you’re unfamiliar with the term, you’ve probably been living under a rock, but I’ll explain it anyway. Galentine’s was brought to us by the one and only Leslie Knope of Parks & Rec. Its a day to celebrate our platonic lady friends and to show them how much they mean to us. Today, I’m celebrating not only my gals in the photos above, but all of my powerful female friends. I have found so much strength, wisdom and support through the bonds I’ve made with the women in my life. I owe them just about everything, and I don’t know where I’d be without them. You matter more to me than I could ever explain. Please take a moment to check out Allie, Erica and Chloe’s instagram pages!

I’d also like to thank Ban.do for partnering with us for this photoshoot. We’re all huge Ban.do fans, and we couldn’t have been more delighted to work with them. 99.9% of the props and clothing in this photoshoot came from Ban.do but I’ll be sure to link them all below. Follow the cut to see the rest of the photos AND find links to everything we’re wearing and using in the photoshoot. With all that being said, HAPPY GALENTINE’S!

Make Me Up

Hi my loves! Its been too long since I’ve put together an OoTD for the blog, and I feel almost out of practice. Strange how I can spend a solid 5-7 years developing my style, only to “lose it” in a matter of 2 weeks. With that being said, I’m having fun putting together Valentine’s themed outfits. I can’t get enough of this holiday!

Stay Warm

I’m back (sort of)!!! I’ve been fighting off the flu so its been kinda hard to do any work, to say the least. Thankfully, I still had these photos laying around on my memory card and I figured I’d take this opportunity to post them.

You guys have asked me for my more casual looks, and for my own sanity, I’m going to start obliging. I’m not always overdone, perfectly executed Sarah Anne and the pressure to do so has really been depleting me of my energy and drive. Thus, I have decided 2018 will consist of a more realistic approach to fashion. What are your thoughts? (more photos & outfit details after the jump)
