new beginnings

sonja, founder of life in blush

One of the things I love about being a girly girl is when I get the chance to add a little sparkle to my every day appearance. Pop a few curlers into my hair, swipe on a bold lip colour to match my bold mascara and cat-eye and I’m ready to throw open my front door and take on the day with glitter-filled veins and a pocketful of confidence to accompany me. This past weekend was one of those occasions.

These past few months my life has been a series of new beginnings, but one such new beginning was of my own accord. I decided it was time for the vision I see for life in blush and the excitement I feel for the future to be reflected in my profile photo (found here).

Bohdan Turok, my brilliant photographer and friend, captured me in a candid moment that I believe perfectly projects the happiness I feel over being able to chat with all of you every day about what I love most. I came away from a very fun photo shoot feeling incredibly blessed and excited for what lies ahead!
