A Special Night In – Inspired by 50 Shades of Grey | + Giveaway

50 Shades of Grey | Christian Confidential If you’ve been on social media over the last few days I’m sure you’ve seen the buzz surrounding the May 1st digital release of one of the biggest movies of the year, 50 Shades of Grey. Well I’ve teamed up with Universal Pictures to not only give a few of my lucky readers the chance to win a DVD package of the movie, (which is available in stores May 8th) but also to give you guys an idea on how you can celebrate bringing Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele’s home.

As I’m sure a lot of you all know, I tend to lean more on the romantic side of the spectrum, so for me, this was a cool project to work on.  I couldn’t think of a more perfect way than to treat yourself or your lover to a romantic night in, that’ll  get you in the mood for the steamy romance of Christian and Anastasia.

I’m a visual person so I’ve put together a few photos and a short video clip to give you guys an idea of how you can have the perfect night in..

50 Shades of Grey | Christian Confidential

To recreate this experience yourself, here’s a list of the items that I used:

Champagne – Whenever I’m treating myself, champagne is always included in the equation. Maybe I’m childish but the bubbles always make me smile uncontrollably .

Red Roses – I’ve never met a person that didn’t feel special when they received a bouquet of roses. Put them in a vase beside your champagne and snacks or sprinkle the petals around to give you more of a romantic feel.

Bath Bomb– Every now and then, who doesn’t like a good soak in the tub? La Vanille from Bathorium is definitely one of my go-to bath bombs.

Candles– It’s all about being committed, candles not only help you relax but sets the vibe of the evening.

Chocolate – You’ll need something to snack on while you’re watching #FiftyShades of Grey and Godiva chocolates are honestly one my favourites!

I hope that this post gave you a few ideas on how you can celebrate your night in with 50 Shades of Grey.  If you’d like to win a copy of the movie, look out for a special post on my Instagram later today and tag a friend that you know will be watching the movie too!

Holiday Dress Up + Contest With Forever 21

Holiday Dress Up | Style PostHoliday Dress Up | Style PostThe holiday season is well underway and if you’re anything like me you’re probably rummaging through your closet trying to find things to wear for all of those holiday parties. My friends at Forever 21 asked me to put together what I would consider the perfect “holiday party” outfit, and this is what I came up with. Black denim, an oxford shirt, tie, a velveteen blazer & light brown accessories. Feeling comfortable and on trend are two important factors when I consider what to wear and this look checks off both of those boxes. Opting for black denim instead of dress pants keeps me in my comfort zone and deciding to make the highlight of my outfit the velveteen blazer keeps me on trend with almost every holiday collection out there.

Back 2 Basics | What I’m Wearing

Back to Basics | Christian ConfidentialBack to Basics | Christian ConfidentialIt’s the second week of August which means two things here in Toronto; 1 – there’s only a few ‘good’ weather weeks left for us  & 2 – it’s time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe. The thing I love the most about fall is being able to add levels to your outfits effortlessly through layering. I tend to start my fall shopping by purchasing the basics first;  sweaters, sweatshirts, basic tees, the standard pants & denim for the season.  This style post I did with Forever 21 will give you a little bit of insight of how I’ll be building my outfits this fall.
