DIGITAL BLOOMS SEPTEMBER 2020 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPER


Happy September 1st, flower lovers! This transitional month where summer meets autumn is my absolute favourite of the year — and I’m thrilled to usher in a brand new season with September 2020’s Free Floral Wallpaper. But would it really be September without sunflowers?! I can’t resist bringing sunflowers into our home to savour the final weeks of summer  — they bring such a happy energy to any room! And now, you can bring that same cheerful, sunny and uplifting energy to the background of your computer, tablet or phone with September 2020’s Digital Blooms — featuring Sunflowers, white Garden Cosmos, Golden Tickseed, Pampas Grass and Whiskey Grass set against a sage green (my latest COLOUR CRUSH — new post coming soon!) background.

While I’m sure we can all agree that 2020 hasn’t been the year any of us had hoped for, I always look forward to the clean slate that September brings. Regardless of whether you (or your loved ones) are returning to school or work this season, I hope this free floral tech wallpaper brings you a little bit of sunshine and joy during these strange times. My DIGITAL BLOOMS are available for you anytime you need a little floral pick me up — simply click through to download August’s free desktop wallpaper straight to your devices.

AUGUST 2O2O SOUNDTRACK


As the final full month of summer comes to a close, I’m thrilled to bring you another MONTHLY SOUNTRACK! My August 2020 Soundtrack features a mash up of 60 tracks spanning genres from ultra chill instrumental to explicit hip-hop — an eclectic melange of tunes that have been pumping through my speakers all month long. I’ve been spending my days making the most of all this beautiful season has to offer while working away on lots of exciting projects and upcoming content (including a seasonally inspired SPACE REFRESH, which you can catch a glimpse of in this month’s album cover!) that I can’t wait to share with you as we transition into autumn. This nearly 4 hours playlist has been integral in keeping my ears (and mind) entertained and inspired this month as I putter away on various creative pursuits and enjoy the great outdoors!

There are so many wonderful artists and tracks to discover in my August 2020 Soundtrack — but a handful of my personal favourites include Croosh’s Prosecco, Colouring’s Ember, Work Drugs Never Say Die, Jacques Green’s remix of Two Hearts, Yoke Lore’s Fade Away, MGK & Blackbear’s my ex’s best friends, Cam Stacey’s remix of Free (my most played track of the month!), Teen Daze’s Open, Run The Jewels’ JU$T, Phoebe Bridger’s Garden Song, Lastling’s Verona, Alex Lustig’s Free Spirit, Petit Biscuit’s You, Nieve & Soul Chief’s Write This Down, ScHoolboyQ’s Crash, LYREE’s Collins Ave and BRONSON & ODEZA’s  CALL OUT. Happy listening, music lovers!

DIGITAL BLOOMS AUGUST 2020 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPER


Flower friends, welcome back for an extra cheerful August Edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS! Shifting gears from July’s prairie-inspired Edition, this month I wanted to create something extra bright, joyful and uplifting inspired by summer’s blooming gardens. August 2020’s Digital Blooms feature a lovely array of some of very favourite flowers — including White Ranunculus, Yellow Butterfly Ranunculus (learn All About Ranunculus), Blush and White Tulips (learn All About Tulips) along with Quicksand and Yellow Spray Roses (learn All About Roses) arranged with whimsy. There’s something about the combination of blush pinks, yellow and cream that feels quintessentially summer to me — it’s a palette I also find myself enjoying in my wardrobe and home at this time of year!

August 2020’s Digital Blooms are heavily inspired by a few hues from PANTONE’s Spring / Summer 2020 Colour Trend Report — including SunlightCoral Pink and Brilliant White. Enjoy a daily dose of summer’s carefree energy on background of your computer, laptop, tablet or phone all month long by clicking through to download August 2020’s Free Floral Wallpaper! Wishing all my Canadian readers a rejuvenating, safe and joyous long weekend — I’m signing off to do some gardening and enjoy a glass of rosé in the sunshine! Cheers!

JULY 2O2O SOUNDTRACK + THE PERFECT LINEN SUNDRESS


My July 2020 Soundtrack is undoubtedly my favourite of the year — and I’m so excited to share it with you today! This 33 track playlist features nearly 2 hours of ultra dreamy, uplifting tunes that have been decorating my summer days and keeping me inspired. MUSIC has always played a big role in my life and is inherently tied to my creative process, as I’m always listening to music while I work away on various projects before I bring them to JustineCelina. July was a very creatively fulfilling month with the perfect mixture of fresh scenery, local travel, lots of gardening and many photoshoots with our stunning Alberta prairies as a backdrop — and this feel-good soundtrack encompasses all the creative, happy vibes July was made of!

This month I could highlight every single track in this playlist as a favourite — so instead, I’ll just let you take a listen! As I did last month, I’m also infusing some STYLE content into this month’s Soundtrack and introducing you to my perfect linen sundress — which I purchased in 5 colourways and have literally been living in all summer long. If you’re interested in additional details, you’ll find them towards the bottom of the post, along with an update on when you can expect my Summer 2020 Lookbook, which I’ve been working away on BTS all month! (Canadian) friends, have an absolutely wonderful long weekend — and whatever you’re up to, I hope you all stay safe and well!

DIGITAL BLOOMS JULY 2020 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPER


Happy Canada Day, friends! I spent the day foraging our beautiful Alberta land for ingredients and shooting July’s DIGITAL BLOOMS — and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the true north strong and free’s 153 Birthday! This month I wanted to commemorate the peaceful couple of weeks I’ve spent here at my childhood home in rural Alberta creating content by channeling inspiration from my surroundings into July 2020’s Digital Blooms, so you can enjoy a little bit of country tranquility, too! Despite all the flowers that are currently blooming here on our acreage, my favourite quintessential image of summertime in the country is a sea of tall, wild grasses dancing and swaying in the sunlight. It’s a comforting image that just feels like home — and it’s something I wanted to share with all of you!

This year our natural grasses seem more stunning that ever, spanning an array of golden, lavender, purple and green hues — and I harvested an assortment of Reed Canary Grass, Smooth Brome, Perennial Ryegrass, Crested Wheatgrass and Cheatgrass to create July 2020’s Digital Blooms! To switch things up and keep all materials for this free tech wallpaper authentic to the prairies, I also photographed the wild grasses on a piece of foraged barn board from an abandoned farmhouse just a few miles away (this is where all of the wooden backdrops you see here in the JustineCelina RECIPE section are from!).

DIGITAL BLOOMS JUNE 2020 x BLACK LIVES MATTER | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPER + ANTI-RACISM RESOURCES


Hello, friends. How’s everyone doing? It’s certainly been a very transformative couple of weeks since my last post — and possibly, the most transformative of my lifetime. Given the state of the world, it simply didn’t feel right proceeding with regularly scheduled programming earlier this month. So last week, in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter anti-racism movement, I (like many other creators) muted my own content to create space to learn, unlearn, explore, amplify melanated voices and actively engage with anti-racism work. Rather than sharing my own content, I used this time to deep dive into some difficult topics, educate myself, reflect and process, have important conversations and create space for a very important discussion to take place. I amplified Black voices and the work of Black creators, artists and activists, as well as my learnings, on my Instagram Stories while pausing my social feed and blog posts. I can’t recall a period of time where I’ve ever learned or absorbed so much information — and I felt called to summarize it all for you here at JustineCelina in June 2020’s edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS.

June 2020’s Digital Blooms were created in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter civil rights uprising, using multi-coloured flowers foraged from blooming trees to form a raised fist signifying unity, diversity, support, strength and the power of change. Flowers have always brought me great joy, which was part of the reason I created my DIGITAL BLOOMS series nearly 5 years ago — a way to preserve nature’s seasonal beauty and offer each of you a piece of joy, too. My free floral tech wallpapers are often inspired by colour trends and current events — and it simply didn’t feel right to not translate the huge shift we’re collectively experiencing into this month’s edition. Although I’ll never be fully educated on the topic of anti-racism, I didn’t want that to stop me from using my platforms to take a stand against injustice and encourage you to do the same. Click through to download June 2020‘s tech wallpaper absolutely free — let it serve as a reminder of the unity our world is fighting for, as well as your and allyship and commitment to do the work necessary to end racism. JustineCelina stands for justice, freedom, oneness, love and equality. Silence is simply no longer an option — Black Lives Matter.

MY FAVOURITE FLORAL FRAGRANCES


Fragrance lovers, I’m ecstatic to share this post with you today after an unintentional hiatus! Although I’ve always had a fondness for fragrance and have amassed quite the collection over the course of my blogging career, it’s been 3 years since I published my last dedicated FRAGRANCE post. Just as I’ve done with the return of BEAUTY content, I wanted to bring my love of fragrance back to JustineCelina in a more meaningful way — and after exploring a few different ideas, that’s exactly what I’ve done in this My Favourite Floral Fragrances post. Today I’m sharing my most worn, most loved, most complimented floral fragrances with you — the scents I have on constant rotation from February through September! If you’re in the market for a new spring fragrance or are simply craving some lighthearted beauty inspiration, you’ve come to the right place.

Spritzing on a fragrance is the cherished finishing touch in my daily beauty routine. Even on days when I’m not leaving the apartment, I never skip fragrance! Lately with all the time I’ve spent at home I find myself relishing in little luxuries like fragrance to help lift my spirits and make me feel more like myself — selecting a scent to perfume each day’s memories is an important act of self care and one that brings me great joy. Today I’m sharing that joy with you and introducing my 3 favourite designer floral fragrances (including my signature scent!), while divulging all the details about when I wear them, scent descriptions and notes, and alternate variations you may want to explore — complete with shoppable links from various retailers. These lovely spring and summer scents range from fresh and fruity, to sensual and spicy, to warm and sophisticated — there’s truly something for everyone! Pour yourself a glass of bubbly and let’s celebrate the season’s quintessential scent (and our shared love of FLOWERS!) in fragrance form this May long weekend!
