DIY Aesthetically Pleasing Vitamin Labels


I don't know about you but I am a fan of aesthetically pleasing objects. To me aesthetically pleasing means clean, minimal design with just the right combination of modern and classic elements. 

I also need to take vitamins. But most vitamins come in not-so-aesthetically-pleasing packaging and while I'm not trying to be picky... Who am I kidding. I'm being a bit ridiculous but now that I'm armed with skills of graphic design I have to work them into my DIY projects. So that's what I've done.

Inspired by the gorgeous branding of Aesop and Bear I decided to create my own labels. I purchased the beautiful amber bottles from The Soap Dispensary on Main St in Vancouver and printed the labels on a full sized sheet of label paper so I could cut them out to be the exact size I wanted. Then I stuck the labels onto the bottles and filled them up with all the vitamins I take.

This was a really fun project for me and I had great feedback on Instagram so I've included a downloadable file if you'd like to make these for yourself! Click here to get it.

If you use these I'd love to see, so tag me on Instagram or send me an email!



Well it's been a full month since my last post. Fail. But school has been heckuh hectic and I'm been super freaking busy. But today I set aside 30 minutes to crank out a little update for you! So without further ado...

Best part of the week: I got a practicum position! I'd been stressing super hard for the past few weeks about where I was going to work and yesterday it all fell into place. To say I feel relieved is an understatement. Now all I have to worry about are the 3 presentations, 2 finals, and 2 projects all coming up next week. *nervous laughs*

Worst part of the week: I'm in the final weeks of my program and it is full. on. As you just read, we have a lot going on right now and my brain is moving so quickly that if I don't write down every thought I have, it's gone until I go to bed. Then all the thoughts that I had throughout the day that didn't get written down come stampeding through my mind. It's been a long week and next week is another long one so I'm feeling tired and a bit burnt out.

Something I'm grateful for: I have lots that I'm grateful for right now. My education, my practicum, my mom, my family, my friends, the approaching weekend, my boyfriend, all the things!!!

Something I'm excited for: I am super excited to start my practicum. I'm excited for the change of pace, the absence of homework, the new scenery, new people, and new experiences. It's only for a short period of time but the change is very welcome!

672) Are your ears lobed or attached? Super random question this week.. but the answer is lobed.

I will spending my weekend studying, prepping, and finishing projects and also going to a bridal shower! I hope you all have fabulous weekends and I will be seeing you soon with a fun little project!

Best part of the week: Yesterday I slept in until 8:20 and still made it to school on time. That’s an accidental sleep in of almost a full hour so I felt wonderful in my 7 hour coding class.

Worst part of the week: All. The. Rain. I hardly remember what life is like when it isn’t raining. (the photo of Finn outside was taken last week).

Something I’m grateful for: Umbrellas - because it’s nice not looking like a drowned rat every time you come in from outside.

Something I’m excited for: I have a hair appointment today! I haven’t had my hair cut since last March so it’s looking pretty gnarly..

Happy weekending friends! I’ll be studying for two tests, working on three websites, and trying to fit some good ol’ homework assignments in mine so be sure to have some fun on my behalf!
