   Good morning everyone! Well, as you can tell from the title today, I’m re-branding Thursdays as “Instagram Thursdays!” Each week I will be bringing you someone new and exciting to follow on Instagram. How will I choose these amazing accounts you ask? Well…my criteria for the selection process is simple, the account needs to be inspiring, creative, original and offer a glimpse into the world of the person who created it. Oh…and I need to start fanning myself the second I see their photos…thats very important as well. lol. Today I’m excited to share the account of StudioBicyclette by Toronto…

   Good morning everyone! It’s Wednesday…and you know what that means…Wedding Wednesday is here to save you from your boring work week!

It’s Wedding Wednesday on SCM!” I promise to bring you beautiful wedding photography, amazing wedding vendors and dazzling inspiration for your special day. I may be married already, but I haven’t lost my love (and lust) for elegant weddings. Today, I’m featuring Sweet Woodruff, a floral boutique located in Toronto, ON.    I came across…

Hello darlings…Well, I’ve decided that Wednesday will now be known as “Wedding Wednesdays”…because…don’t we all need a little pick me up by the time Wednesday rolls around? I know I do! What better way to celebrate this day than with this brilliant wedding inspiration shoot from Le Secret d’Audrey. The photos that are featured were taken in Provence, France. Audrey’s images are not just photographs, they are delicate pieces of art! Her portfolio is so incredible…it’s almost unfair to describe it as anything other than absolutely B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L !! Audrey and her partner Anthony specialize in weddings and elopements in the city of…

@xmademoisellex     Greetings from Mexico! Welcome to your weekly round up of Instagoodness…We are having so much fun in beautiful Manzanillo. Yesterday we went high up into the mountains and did some zip lining through the tropical trees…but more on that next week…Mexico is known for using bright beautiful colour in their fashion and architecture. Yesterday, while driving into the mountains, I noticed many traditional homes painted in bright pink and I started to get inspired. This inspiration helped me select today’s images. Here are 10 stylish shots featuring, what else? beautiful shades of pink!…I hope these shots inspire you to…

Today I’m featuring a stunning editorial shoot from Rebecca Yale Photography. Rebecca is a fine art wedding, lifestyle and fashion photographer from New York.  When I came across Rebecca’s portfolio a while back, I squealed with delight! Her photography style is so romantic and lovely! I was excited when she gave me permission to share these images with you. She has mastered the art of soft lighting and and beautiful storytelling. Rebecca is a world traveller and is available for weddings or portraits anywhere in the world. Traveling around and witnessing so much love and beauty must be a fantastic way…

   This past year has been a whirlwind! 2015 was a year of personal growth, change and inspiration… I started Style by Clark Martin last year because I wanted to share what I’m passionate about with others. After a full year of blogging (some part-time, some full time) I’m astonished at all that I’ve accomplished…This year I moved away from my home town…changed careers…and decided to take a new path in life. One where I honour the real me… For years I had to hide who I was in order to fit the mould of my previous profession. I’m happy to…

  While dreaming about Europe in June… I found inspiration in the memory of seeing Ladurée for the first time while staying in Paris. The beautiful pastel pinks, greens and purples…the delicate desserts served on gorgeous dishes… and the feeling of romance and timeless elegance that lingered in the air. I put together a little photoshoot with this memory in mind. Stay inspired and enjoy your day!    

Street Chic Accents for Living

   Welcome to the latest edition of Street Chic, my new lifestyle blog series. Each week I will feature one of my favourite local spots. This could be a cafe, restaurant, antique shop…anywhere that I love spending time. This week I went to Accents for Living, an elegant home decor shop located at 8 Brock Road in Guelph, ON. I discovered Accents for Living about a year ago. Tim and I were thinking about moving to Guelph. While doing a little recon in the area, we happened to pass by this lovely stone house. The ornate floral arrangements that frame the entrance way…
