ADORE ME

Let’s get one thing straight, I am guilty of stealing clothes from the mens section. Sometimes they have the right combination of material, cut and structure. When I was a kid, I would always sneak into the mens section for all my sports apparel. They always had the best style and a larger selection. So it’s no surprise I gravitated towards this menswear inspired pajama from Adore Me. This pajama set is the perfect combination of something sleek and sophisticated with a hint of menswear. The material feels incredibly luxurious and I love the ivory satin piping detail that compliments my growing…

CHRISTMAS BEAUTY

We all have that beauty junkie friend who has every shade of lipstick from their favorite brand, or all four Naked Palettes.  I know I do and I love every shade they offer. One of my favorite brands for makeup is YSL. I love the coverage and glow I get from their fusion ink cushion foundation.

This holiday I am going to go a little bold in my makeup by…

I don’t know about you but I am full swing into Christmas shopping and trying to get everything I need for everyone on my list. That’s not all that’s on my plate, I am also decorating the nursery and trying to decorate our home because we will be hosting our annual Christmas Dinner. Sometimes when you are prepping for the holidays and making sure everyone is taken care of, you forget to take a little time out and just breathe. As an Aveda Canada partner, the kind folks at Aveda Canada sent me the most perfect package that helped me recharge…

STRESS FREE HOLIDAY

The holidays have always been my favorite time of the year. Coming from the west-coast and moving to the east, it’s the only time I can get a chance to catch up with my family. I can find out what new cookbook my mamma is working on, to how retirement is treating my father, and view some videos of my brothers’ new life in sunny California. Let’s not forget, also find out my relatives’ travel plans because everyone knows I love having a huge get together at my place for a traditional Christmas Eve dinner. Another thing I love about…
