Heyyyy Macrame

Fashion definitely works in cycles and this spring/summer 2014 we have seen a strong retro, bohemian flare in fashion once again. The exact same thing goes for jewelry. All the street style pictures continue to show a string bohemian flare. “Boho” and “boho chic” are two hot terms in the fashion world due to the 60’s & 70’s influences we see in clothing and jewelry. At Beck & Boosh we love a great boho-chic look!

This spring/summer season, one of our three collections was Bohemian Beauty, which has been one of our hottest trends to date. The bohemian style breathes summer, with flowy clothing, and layered jewelry. This season, some of our most popular pieces have been made from macrame, which is a form of textile weaving through a distinct knotting technique and was very popular in the 70’s. The Beck & Boosh macrame pieces were all handmade in India and the handwork is incredible. The beautiful pops of turquoise adds the perfect pop of colour with any look.

A fellow Canadian, Whitney, from the fantastic blog Whit By Chance, recently stylized our macrame pieces, as well as our boho wrap ring and studded friendship bracelet. Whitney has amazing style and has created an instablog fan base that is truly amazing. With her Beck & Boosh pieces, she showed how any piece of jewelry can be worn a variety of ways, to create a unique look! We are totally in love with her edgy style in these pictures and it has inspired us to try out new outfits with our macrame pieces!

We hope that Whitney’s style inspires you to try out new looks with your own jewelry. Accessories make all the difference in your look and a few small changes can completely revamp your outfit!

Be creative!

It’s all in the Bangle

Image

At Beck & Boosh we LOVE a great bangle set. They truly make the perfect bracelets and on any given day, either Beck or Boosh are sporting a bangle set. Bangle sets allow you to create your own arm party combos, mix things up a bit or if feeling less inspired, the stacked look is already created for you.

This summer we brought back our bright coloured bangle sets and they are the perfect summer accessory. They add a pop of colour and are an excellent accent for any summer festival look. When approached by Melissa, a fashion blogger, to stylize some of our jewelry, we couldn’t find a better piece of jewelry for her chic, functional style.

Melissa is from the Maritimes, is a busy mom with a full-time teaching job (boy, can we ever relate!) and has her own fashion blog called Sigh…Gush…Gasp. Last week she stylized our pink Bangle Set and we think she looks fab! Be sure to check out her blog and follow her for great style tips and inspiration!

It’s hard to believe that our Rainbow Bright collection launched almost a month ago! Now that the sun is shining, the time is just flying by. We are so happy that summer is finally here and we can enjoy summer clothing, trips to the beach and of course our festival season!

It is also an amazing time to embrace colour and include as much as you can in your outfit. You can use accessories to add a pop of brightness that will transform your whole look. For our Summer ’14 collection we decided to go really colourful and celebrate the summer solstice. The colours of the rainbow just make us happy and we hope that they do the same for you!

The NEW Beck & Boosh Staff!

Image

It’s official, our summer festival season has begun. This season is extra special for us because we have hired our first full-time staff. We bought a van and the staff are hitting the road this summer selling Beck & Boosh jewelry all over the Maritimes. We feel blessed to have found such awesome gals and we know that you will love them as much as we do. You will be seeing  a lot of them this summer and make sure when you see them at an event, you pop over to say ‘hi’!

Meet Kaylee and Cassie, our Beck & Boosh gals. They have amazing spirits, great work ethic and both have fantastic style!

Cassie hails from Amherst and is a recent graduate from Environmental Science at Dal/AC. She loves to play in the dirt and cares a lot about our Earth, and quite frankly, she is pretty awesome. Plus, she is stinkin’ cute and has amazing mermaid hair that we all dream about having.

Kaylee is from Tatamagouche and like we have said before, that tiny town creates gorgeous people. Kaylee recently returned from a four-month backpacking trip around New Zealand and we were lucky enough to grab her when she returned. She is one beautiful, hard-working girl who loves the great outdoors and seriously knows how to thrift shop.

Tie your own head scarf

It’s that time of year again! Hot weather, the beach, camping, backyard barbecues, road trips and messy hair! I love the summer more than any time of the year but as  working women on the road, Beck & I need to find stylish ways to wear our hair in a hurry. Wearing head scarves is a great way to try out new styles and to just get creative. When camping or during your travels, you can still have a great hair day with a head scarf. Whether it’s for ladies night on the patio, a family barbecue or a summer festival, try out wearing a head scarf this season!

At Beck & Boosh we are always coming up with fun ways to wear a head scarf. Use our pictures for inspiration or follow our videos for a step by step guide.

Beck & Boosh highlights of year 1

Image

Wow! It’s been an amazing year! It’s hard to believe that Beck & Boosh has only been in existence for one year. This business has become such an integral part of our lives that it feels as though we have been operating this business for years. The support has been tremendous and every day we feel so blessed that our dream business has become a reality.

There has been so many highlights over the past year, it’s hard to mention them all! Every step along the way has been huge for us, because everything has been entirely new! I will forever remember when we received our first order and squealed in excitement. For a month we would text every time we got an order. We have come a LONG way from the day our website went live!

Here are a few major highlights from Beck & Boosh’s first year in operation:

April 2013: the business name was decided and registered. Our logo was then created (which is actually our own names written by us!).

Beck & Boosh trip to India! Although I had been to India before, this was the first time going buying for Beck & Boosh and the vision that Beck and I had built. It was such an amazing experience to talk to companies there about our growing company in Canada!

Beck & Boosh trip to India! This trip took place in October 2013 and was when most of the products for the entire year were bought. Full India blog is here.

It truly is hard to pin point all the highlights of our first year since there have been so many special, memorable moments. Beck always mentions we need a calendar to keep track of all the little, yet important things that happen on a day-to-day basis. Some other wonderful, exciting things that happened in year one: We started wholesaling and spreading our brand even further, and we started doing home parties on selected dates. All things helping to spread the Beck & Boosh name!

Now on to year two! We wonder how we will ever top year one!

Till next time,

Beck & Boosh xo
