Vacation Style

Status

It’s that time of year again. The winter blues are in full force and we are dreaming of warmer days ahead. Especially us here in the Maritime’s, we have been hit hard with Winter this year so a lot of us make plans for a vacation away to shake off the snow & bask in the sun!

Whether you’re heading to Mexico, Dominican Republic or Cuba for a vacation away you want to have everything in order; especially what you will be wearing! Here at Beck & Boosh we want to show you four worthy VACATION styles to help you out!

1) Casual/Nautical: We think this a a perfect look to bring along with you on your vacation! Showing off your HOME province and wearing the accessories to match seals the deal! Pair it with a fun pair of shorts, fedora & a fringe bag and you’re taking this outfit to a whole new level!

2) Bohemian Vacation Chic: We LIVE for this outfit! You will be nice and cool on your vacation wearing this loose fitting tunic dress! We did some mix & match jewels to accompany this outfit: A little nautical + statement pieces. Don’t hold back! Finish the look with a pair of sun glasses, a floppy hat and sandals!

3) Beach Vibe: Of course the main reason why most of us go away during the Winter months is to relax on the BEACH! But we still want to show off our style! Pair your bathing suits with a fedora, a hip beach blanket and sunnies!

**Remember if you are wearing jewelry at the beach you should take your jewelry off when you’re in the water or when you’re reapplying sun screen to keep the longevity of your favorite pieces!**

 4) Fun & Classy: Not only will you be soaking up the rays on the beach all day, you no doubt will be having some amazing dinners & dancing the evenings away! We think a white dress with a tan is amazing. You can pair a lot of colors against white so we went with gold tones for this look! Finish the look with a clutch that ties in the colors of your jewels & a pair of wedge shoes!

blog1Beck & Boosh also have two video’s to show you different ways to pack your jewelry on your trip. Keeping your necklaces tangle free & How to pack your earrings. Check them out:

We hope we helped you with your packing or perhaps gave you a new idea on how to wear your Beck & Boosh jewelry! If you plan on going down South this winter and wear any Beck & Boosh, don’t forget to tag us in your pictures and hashtag #beckandboosh

Local Gems: Truro, Nova Scotia Edition

Image

Let’s go back about two years ago: I was in the Truro mall with my then-boyfriend (now husband), Christmas shopping. I walked by a booth set up with so many spectacular, colourful, shiny things-I-wanted-to-wear-all-the-time! Sold. Also there was a lady working at the booth who looked super sweet and fashionable. Sold again! I told Allen “We’ve GOT to go back!” From there we met Beck from Beck & Boosh and she told us their story and how they were local and how they started the business. SOLD even more! Fast forward two years and here I am, working with Beck & Boosh!

10308259_247575198770481_2423517492781883629_n

My first Beck & Boosh jewelry from almost two years ago – my husband bought me the Arrow Bracelet the day we were introduced to Beck & Boosh at the Truro Mall!

After my experience with Beck & Boosh and now working for a local company, I now pledge every year to SHOP more local and discover local gems here in Truro, NS! When you go into any local type business, you feel like you’re walking into a community. You get to know the owners and there staff on a more personal level. You get to hear their stories of how they became. Here in Truro there are many amazing spots to check out! Here are just a few of MANY:

1) Pearl & Daisy: Do you love natural UNIQUE products like soaps, bath bombs, creams, face masks, etc? THIS is the place to go! Not only that, but the packaging details are amazing! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed! (My favourite are the bath bombs!)

Bath Bomb anyone? Pearl & Daisy has AMAZING ones you’ll love!

2) Jimolly’s Bakery Cafe: Crave a delicious coffee by Java Blend Coffee Roasters or a Chai Latte and a DELICIOUS baked goodie by the equally awesome Brookfield Bakery/Hurricane Heidi’s Cafe? Then this is the spot to go! Every time I walk into Jimollys, I always get an amazing vibe!

556467_332625640154348_1541344035_n

Did you know: The Cafe was named Jimolly’s after Jim and Molly, who are brother and sister basset hounds! :)

 3) Lou Lou Clothing: Every time I go in, I am always greeted with such positive, upbeat ladies! They even sell two of my favorite clothing lines: Pink Martini (A Proud Canadian Brand based out of Toronto!) and Yoga Jeans (All of the denim is 100% Handcrafted at the Yoga Jeans Facility in Quebec, Canada!)

Not only is Lou Lou Clothing an awesome store, it’s in such an awesome building! There dressing rooms are in vault – Cool!

 4) Bistro 22: An amazing spot for DELICIOUS fresh local ingredient made meals! They always have specials of the day! The atmosphere is great & the staff and Chef are too. They always go above and beyond with their customer service and cater to any special dietary needs. If you haven’t been there, it is THE restaurant you HAVE to check out.

How to Style your Beck & Boosh HOME Shirts

In November 2014, Beck & Boosh launched our HOME shirts and most recently, our PROUD shirts. They are the perfect symbolism of your roots and where you come from. On the East Coast we are so proud to show where we call home! We are also proud to say that all the shirts are designed and printed in Nova Scotia! We designed the t-shirts to not only have an awesome message, but also to have a stylish fit that you can wear with any of your favorite outfits! We decided to show you some different ways that you can pair your HOME and PROUD shirts.

** Two ways we like to wear our t-shirts: (1) Pairing your HOME t-shirt with a pencil skirt, tights & some cute boots! (2) Pair your PROUD t-shirt with with a colorful blazer and some dark denim! And of course, accessorize with your favourite Beck & Boosh jewelry!

** Another great way to wear your HOME t-shirt is with a Plaid shirt. Plaid is very on trend right now and won’t be going out of style any time soon – especially here in Canada! Wear your Plaid shirt open with your HOME t-shirt underneath. Pair it with a pair of your favorite jeans & gold accessories!

IMG_8264-1

Boosh is wearing NS HOME t-shirt in Grey! Jewelry: Necklace: RiRi Chain Link / Bracelet & Earrings will be launched on Monday January 19th – STAY TUNED! ;)

**Another way we love to wear our HOME t-shirt is layered. Wearing a long sleeve shirt underneath it gives it some contrast and a cozy feel – especially in these colder months!

Until next time lovelies,

2014 at Beck & Boosh

Image

It’s hard to narrow down the highlights from 2014 because it’s all been pretty awesome! The truth is for our company, 2014 kicked butt! It was such an exciting year for us as the company continued to evolve. We ended 2014 being in business only 19 months, but because of all the BIG changes, it feels like so much longer. Beck and I would both agree that 2014 is a year we will never forget!

Here are the highlights from 2014:

In April 2014, Beck & Boosh were sponsors of the East Coast Music Awards! We were featured in 2 programs and 150 musicians and delegates received our jewelry. AMAZING experience!

Once summer hit, we hired our first two employees, bought a Beck & Boosh van and sent them on their way spreading the Beck & Boosh name!

Here are the girls in front of the Beck & Boosh van that they are touring in all summer long!

In June 2014, we started wholesaling to Pseudio stores. We started out in just a few locations, but before long, we had racks on the counters of all 26 Pseudio stores in Atlantic Canada and the three that opened in Alberta too!

In August 2014, we moved out of Boosh’s basement and into our first office/warehouse space! So exciting! Oh, and did we mention that we both quit our teaching jobs and are working on Beck & Boosh full-time. Yup, it’s pretty amazing!

At the end of October, I (Boosh), made the trip back to India to do our spring/summer 2015 buying!

For 3 days I attended the Indian handicrafts Gift Show, one of the largest in Asia. Here I scoped out new trends, met with companies and interacted with our competitors.

In November, our NEW ‘story’ collection launched for the Holiday season. With the launch of our new collection, came our new HOME shirts. This propelled the business further than we could have ever imagined! We had them all printed in Nova Scotia and each shirt is our own design with the various Atlantic provinces. The launch of the HOME shirts was a major highlight of 2014!

The HOME shirts are available for men & women and in all Atlantic Provinces & Cape Breton! You can find the shirts here.

The word for 2014 is: grateful. We are so grateful for all the support and for all the doors that have opened for us this year. It has been an incredible year full of hard work and rewards!

So, what’s in store for 2015? We believe things are only going to continue to bigger and better!

Here is to an amazing 2014 and an even better 2015!

Holiday Looks

Image

The Holidays are a time of many different festivities; whether it’s a work party, family events, or getting together with your friends. It’s also known as the perfect time to doll yourself up!

Here at Beck & Boosh we’re here to help you accessorize for any occasion this Holiday Season! I’ve put together 4 different Holiday looks to help you jazz up your outfits!

1) The first look is all about bold colors! Some of this season’s hottest colors are wine, cranberry & anything in the purple family! Pair your dress with Beck & Boosh new Elizabeth Braided Statement Necklace to add an extra POP of color! Accessorize with our Turquoise bangle set and gold flower earrings to really complete this look! You’re not going to want to take this outfit off!

2) Maybe you want to keep it a little more casual but want to make more bold choices in your jewelry! Pair your comfy jeans with a nice blouse and add some jewels to make your outfit really shine. We think our Khaleesi Inspired Statement Necklace, Renee Hammered Cuff and Triple Triangle Earrings will do the trick!

3) Red is not only the color of confidence, it’s the most symbolic color of the Holidays! To give it a little edge add our Queen B Statement Necklace with it’s matching earrings and bracelet!

4) The little black dress is timeless and should be in every ladies closet – especially if you have an event coming up! A little black dress is so easy and versatile to dress up. Pair it with our brand new Red Sophia Necklace to really make a STATEMENT! Then accessorize with our Sparkle Sailor Studs and McQueen Cuff to complete this gorgeous outfit! You’ll be a show stopper, that’s a fact!

The possibilities are endless when it comes to Holiday style. We hope we helped you out with some new ideas! Find even MORE styles and jewelry on our website: www.beckandboosh.com 

Until next time my lovelies,

Have a STYLING Christmas!
