    My Bachelorette Recap: Episode 8 & JHforPriv GIVEAWAY

    July 8, 2014 • 10:00 am

    SOOOOO….as most of you know, my Jillian Harris for Privilege clothing line is launching THIS FRIDAY, and what better way to get you excited than to host a GIVEAWAY!!!!! You could get your hands on the dress I featured yesterday…the Peggy Dress!!! Keep reading to find out how to enter!!!!

    Onto The Bachelorette....HOME TOWN DATES!!!!! ALREADY!!! Overall, everyone’s families were really welcoming and excited for Andi to be in their sons’ lives, so Andi is pretty lucky! Nick’s home town date was first, and I’m not gonna lie…I teared up a bit when Nick was getting emotional talking to his Mom! I guess I never really saw a soft, emotional side to Nick during any other episode, and you could really sense how much he cares for Andi. I still hate how cocky and confident he is…it’s like he KNOWS he’s going to the end so he could care less about these next few rose ceremonies!! Someone needs to knock some sense into this one!!!!

    Chris’ family was SOOOO surprisingly nice! I didn’t know what to expect with his family, as they are so close knit, AND they live on a secluded farm in a very small town. I thought they would be over-protecting and possibly stern and judgemental, but that was not they case! Just a whole bunch of sweethearts!!! No wonder Chris has a heart of gold :)

    I honestly felt like Josh’s date was super awkward and all about his brother. That was ALL Josh talked about, even at the dinner table! You could tell by the look on Andi’s face that she was suuuper uncomfortable because the day is supposed to be about HER and JOSH….but to each their own! The fact that the whole family is so supportive around sports and extra curricular activities is great, but it almost seemed like Andi had no choice but to watch Aaron play baseball every Sunday…and if  I were her….I would tire of that reeeeaaal fast because sometimes,  I want Sundays to myself!!

    WHAAAAT JUST HAPPENED???? I don’t understand how Marcus went home before Chris….he was the one who showed his love the most, told her how much he LOVED her, and she even said it would be a fairy tale being with him!!! He was extremely open and honest the entire time, and told Andi that he loved her very soon after this journey started. That probably scared Andi a little bit, but she even said it herself, Marcus would give her THE WORLD!!!! He adores Andi, and would be such a loving, devoted husband to anyone….this episode had a sad ending :(

    Eric’s death clearly affected everyone on the show, including all of the cast and crew, but it was nice to see them all come together and comfort each other. I do feel bad for Andi, as her last conversation with Eric was not the greatest, but that’s life, and there’s not much else you can do than dwell on good times and positivity!

    PS: MARCUS BETTER BE THE NEXT BACHELOR!!!!!!

    ANNOUNCEMENT: JILLIAN HARRIS FOR PRIVILEGE

    July 7, 2014 • 10:00 am

    Like every girl, I have a HUGE obsession with clothes and fashion, if you haven’t noticed!!!!!  So of course, creating my OWN pieces and my own clothing line has ALWAYS been a dream of mine! After being on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, I received tons of requests from friends, family and fans to go for it and create my own collection. The encouragement was overwhelming, but the whole process seemed like such a daunting, difficult task that I got intimidated, and eventually put this dream of mine on hold.

    Years later, I met the team at Privilege Clothing, and they brought up the idea again, and gave me ALL the courage I needed to put my mind to it and go for it. The Privilege team has been SOOO encouraging and motivating, and they have helped facilitate this process to make it so seamless and worth while! Thank you so, so much, Privilege, I am SOOO excited for this journey to begin!!!

    The Jillian Harris for Privilege line is a small summer capsule collection of about 15 pieces. I wanted every piece to be an iconic Jilly piece, mixing feminine with casual, and structure with colour. Each piece is designed with versatility in mind, and can be worn with anything from heels to flats to sandals!!

    How much do you LOVE this White Lace Trim dress??? The cut is so flattering and comfortable, perfect for any one of you to dress up or dress down!

    The collection will be available for purchase online at JillianHarris.com THIS FRIDAY, July 11th, so DON’T miss out!!!!!

    I also want to give a HUGE thank you to all of my followers, fans and supporters for your constant encouragement and belief in me!! Thank you, thank you thank you!!!!!!

    Oh and PS...there will be TONS of giveaways happening on the blog this week and next, so be sure to check back here TOMORROW!!!!

    Wedding Dress Shopping

    June 25, 2014 • 10:00 am

    HORRAYYYY for hump day!!! A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to fulfill one of my bridesmaids duties and join my beautiful girlfriends in Alberta to go wedding dress shopping!!!! These days I love mixing different pastels and prints - such an easy way to transition into this summer weather! I wanted to be comfortable yet chic, and this blue tunic did just that! And how could I resist this fedora??? It's the cherry on top...literally!!!

    Monday Blues

    June 23, 2014 • 12:15 am

    Happy Monday!!!! Bringing you some blue and an office appropriate look to make your day a little brighter! Do you ever find that dressing business casual can sometimes be a challenge???? I know I do, so when I spotted this super cute top, I knew it would be a great piece to fix that problem! Easiest way BY FAR to nail this look is to find pieces that pop and pair them with your business basics! Loving the bold cobalt blue with the femine lace detail!!!
