{our wedding bands <3} I’m getting married tomorrow, which feels pretty surreal to say “out loud”. And while it feels like our day snuck up on us incredibly quickly, it also feels like I’ve been waiting for it my entire life. I’ve never – really and truly never – been more excited for anything than I am to marry my person.  We’ve had family and friends trickling in from out of town all week long and I think it’s safe to say that Justin and I have both felt so much love already, and I can only imagine what this next step will bring. You’ll have to excuse me as I take some time off to really soak it all in. Things will be quiet around here for a bit, but be sure to follow along on Instagram (username: larkandlinen) as I’m sure I’ll be sharing more along the way. As always, here’s a quick peek at my week, in photos.  {A flashback to our first year of dating} {the most beautiful blooms from the sweetest friend} {a peek at our wedding poem}  {finalizing a few last minute details}

In case you missed it, the 90s are back. Mom jeans, velvet chokers, scrunchies — if only I’d never cleaned out my 4th grade closet. And while I may be a little past the age where I feel compelled (or comfortable) hopping aboard the crop top train, I fully support the return of 90s food trends. After all, I’m a complete sucker for nostalgia. If you’ll recall, the 90s was the decade that demonized fat. Low-fat, no-fat and fat-free were the 90s diet rules to live by, and while I like to think we’ve grown leaps and bounds when it comes to nutrition, there are certain culinary relics of the decade that I can get behind. Angel food cake, as you may have guessed, is one of my personal favorites. In case you’re not familiar, the angel food cake is the crown jewel of cakes when it comes to light, fluffy texture. Butter-less, oil-less, and yolk-less, this cake is a fat-free dessert marvel (read: why it was a 90s rock star), that manages to stay supremely delicious even in the absence of the good stuff. Real talk, in the 90s, we would be making this angel food cake from a […]

A few weeks ago, a handful of my closest girlfriends surprised me with a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, for my bachelorette. To say that they went above and beyond to plan the most picture perfect bachelorette for me would be the understatement of the century. And, weeks later, I’m still absolutely bursting with love for this incredible crew of mine. I can say without a doubt that I’ve never felt so loved and so special in the entirety of my life.  {Above: all the pretty, all the time} {outside 86 Cannon} We stayed downtown in the most incredible Air BnB (more on that in my *coles notes* below). Built in 1802 it was oozing with charm and character, and just a stones throw away from most everything. It was an incredible spot – one in which I definitely plan on visiting again, and it’s now filled with the most beautiful memories.  {post-massage at the Belmont} Once we landed, my friends whisked me off to the Belmont Spa and surprised me with an hour long massage, which gave them time to get our air bnb set up. It was absolutely genius on their behalf. It was hands down the very best way to kick off […]

SHOP THE LOOK: There’s no question that I’ve been on a bit of a beach house kick as of late (as evidence here and here), but ’tis the season, am I right? I’m also willing to bet that none of you will mind yet another beach house after you take a peek at this bad boy. Designed by the incredible Kate Marker Interiors, it’s beach house perfection in every sense of the word.  Photos: Framework Creative | Design: Kate Marker Interiors

Our dining set & seat cushions Patio season is officially upon us and I, for one, could not be more thrilled. We recently got our hands on a new dining set for our back patio and it has completely changed everything. Last year we simply used our old balcony furniture (which you can see in action here – and here it is on our old condo balcony), which was lovely. But being able to eat al fresco every evening (and most mornings, too) has been all sorts of wonderful. I wasn’t sure we’d get around to it this year, but we found a set we loved, it was super affordable, and it came in a matter of days, which I’m so thankful for. It definitely made everything so much easier, and I’m so glad we did it. Needless to say, I’ve had patio furniture on the brain, and thought it’d be fun to share some of my favourites in case that you, too, are looking to take the plunge.  1. Acacia 7 Piece Dining Set | 2. Matangi & Gazos 7 Piece Dining Set 3. Chippendale 7 Piece Dining Set | 4. Claris 5 Piece Dining Set 5. Cruce 11 Piece Dining Set | 6. Isidore 7 Piece […]

I was sitting around feeling very sorry for myself yesterday, wrapped up in blankets with a hot tea in hand, thinking about my to-do list and fretting about how this is the very worst time for me to get sick. And then it hit me… With just over a week until our wedding, there is truly nothing else that matters more than the fact that I get to marry my human soon. And the only thing I really need to focus on right now is us, and my healing. Sometimes all you need is a little change in perspective. I’m moving very slowly, but I’m already starting to feel better, and I can’t wait to keep it slow and soak in the next few days. As always, here’s a peek at some of the healthier moments from my week. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend <3 {ABOVE: the last of this season’s peonies} sources: dresser | plain hat | hat with black ribbon (it’s under $35!) {keeping cool with homemade iced coffee on repeat} {all hands on deck these last few weeks}  {the best nurse around} {celebrating Canada day with a girlfriend at Cafe Cancan}

While we are keeping our wedding as simple as physically possible, it isn’t lost on me that the details really matter. And one that I was extra particular about was the calligraphy. I scoured the web high and low to find the best of the best, and I’m so excited to have uncovered someone truly special. Introducing Paula Lee Calligraphy. The woman is beyond talented, and is kind as all get out to boot. Needless to say, it’s an honour to have her here today sharing a behind the scenes peek. I loved learning more about her, her business, and the things that make her tick.  If there are any other makers or entrepreneurs you’d like me to feature in this series, please let me know in the comments below. And feel free to check out the others  When did you first discover calligraphy? How did you know it was what you wanted to do? I discovered calligraphy thanks to a few friends at the time who were encouraging me to give it a shot. I was working full-time at a job that just paid the bills and was looking for a creative outlet. I took an online course (as […]

SHOP THE LOOK: I’ve always considered myself a city girl through and through, but I find the older I get, the more the idea of sneaking off into nature sounds appealing. And there’s no better way to do just that than to head straight to the beach; which is precisely what Will Taylor, the man behind the popular blog Bright Bazaar, and his husband did. They recently renovated their 1940’s Southhampton home, and the results? Well you’ll simply have to take em’ all in for yourself (spoiler alert: they’re really, really, lovely)….  Photos: David A.

Can I be totally honest? The whole bridal thing? It’s not completely for me. At least, not in the traditional sense. I have no judgement to any of those who jump into it all with both feet, but most everything bridal related simply feels a little over the top to me. I mean, you’ll be able to find TONS of lists the likes of this “bridal essentials guide” online, but you guys – they’re mostly all the same – and half of the stuff they mention you truly don’t need (unless of course you want it!) I know I’ve mentioned that it’s been our mission during the course planning our wedding to really make it our own and challenge almost every tradition. And now that we’re almost there, I feel pretty proud of us for sticking to our guns. That said, there are a few items I’ve relied on heavily over the last few months. My own version of “bridal essentials”, if you will. And I thought it’d be fun to share them. From Crest 3D White Whitestrips with Light, which have quickly and effortlessly changed both of our smiles entirely, to the lavender oil that has kept me calm and centred, following are […]
