Flower children, welcome back for another installment in our FLOWER EDUCATION series! Today Rebecca Dawn Design and I couldn’t be more excited to share this Blushing Spring Arrangement with you — it’s sweet, fragrant and right on trend for Spring 2017 (nope, I’m not even close to being done with the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report!). Although I love each of the arrangements and bouquets Rebecca and I create, I have to say — this one is my all time favourite!
Blush tones are a huge trend this spring and its been so much fun translating seasonal colour inspiration across categories. This season, blush, peach and neutral tones have been present in my BEAUTY content and I can’t stop wearing blush inspired neutrals at the moment (they’ll be popping up in my next FASHION post!). Not only are blush and neutral toned blooms perfectly on trend, but the exquisite variety of shades that mother natures provides for us each spring is truly nothing short of amazing. Embrace the season with us today as we chat about our favourite spring blooms and flowering branches in this Blushing Spring Arrangement — including dreamy, oversized Japanese Ranunculus, standard Ranunculus, Quicksand Roses, Lisianthus, Hyacinths and fragrant Magnolia branches hailing from Canada’s west coast! Rebecca also shares her expert flowering branch foraging and care tips to inspire you to enjoy the beauty of the season in your home this spring.
Welcome back for another installment of my seasonal FRAGRANCE EDIT! This time, I’m sharing my top recommendations for Spring / Summer 2017 — the fragrances I love to wear as we transition into warmer weather and sunshiny days! I like to go lighter, brighter and fresher in both my beauty routine and fragrance rotation during the spring and summer, transitioning my fragrance collection along with the seasons. Today I’m working with Sephora Canada to introduce you to 8 beautiful fragrances perfect for balmy spring weather and carefree summer days including 4 Longtime Favourites (including a fragrance I’ve worn for over 10 years!) and 4 Recent Obsessions!
If you’d like to explore the exciting world of designer fragrance this season but don’t know where to start, I’ll be your tour guide! Come gather around my vanity as I chat about my favourite fragrances from Givenchy, Dolce&Gabanna, Versace, Maison Margiela, Guerlain, NEST, fresh and Commodity. Today I’ve selected an array of my most loved scents ranging from fresh and fruity, to crisp and clean, to warm and soft, to light and bright — there’s something for everyone (and every budget) in my Spring / Summer 2017 Fragrance Edit. This post is also a fantastic resource for those of you looking for Mother’s Day gift ideas!
April 1st is an exciting day here at JustineCelina headquarters — it’s been exactly 1 year since Rebecca Dawn Design and I teamed up to create the first edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS for you! There have been so many milestones to celebrate this past month, but this is a very special one. I feel incredibly grateful to continue to work with Rebecca to bring FLOWER content to JustineCelina and make flower education accessible. We are so very lucky to be able to learn from the best!
To set the tone the 1st Anniversary Edition of Digital Blooms, we drew inspiration from the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report. Blush, neutral and muted tones are trending this spring — and they just happen some of mine and Rebecca’s favourites! April 2017’s 3 digital wallpapers feature an array of quintessential spring blooms including Ranunculus (and those gorgeous, oversized Japanese Ranunculus!), Lisianthus, Hellebores and Pieris set to a spring inspired palette of soft blush, peach and mauve shades. This set just screams spring to me! While Calgary isn’t blossoming quite yet, we hope you enjoy our interpretation of spring flowers digitally.

This January, our DIGITAL BLOOMS are set to a crisp, clean palette of whites and greens to greet the new year with a sense of freshness, balance and tranquility. If you’ve been following along this winter, you’ll have heard me mention Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017, Greenery, which is described by Pantone as a refreshing and revitalizing shade, symbolic of new beginnings. Rebecca Dawn Design and I just had to incorporate this beautiful shade into January’s Digital Blooms to set the tone for a fresh new year, full of endless possibilities!
Our ethereal lineup of flowers and foliage includes a mosaic of Hydrangeas, Ranunculus, Parvifolia Eucalyptus, Roses, Spray roses, Nerine and Cala Lilies for a muted palette brimming with soft, delicate textures.
