TONES

As a stylist working in the tech industry, I have a lot of women tell me that they feel uninspired when dressing for success in the workplace. I’ve noticed that a lot of women believe that they should be wearing masculine inspired pieces at work in order to be seen as an equal in their profession… Ladies, this is so far from the truth! As women, we have a lot of options and pieces that we can play with when dressing for success in the workplace. Displaying your personality through your outfit will spark that inspiration you’re lacking and will also leave…

SUMMER

Ah, summer. I don’t know about you but it feels like it took forever to get here. One of the biggest factor I look forward to summer is getting a tan…or in my case, a faux tan. You see for me, getting a tan is tough! First there is the fact that when I tan, I first turn red…peel….and then get that perfect golden hue only to loose it within 2 weeks. And then there is the factor of harmful UVA/UVB rays and putting myself at risk to getting the C word. You know what I’m talking about. Last week…

OVERNIGHT SUCCESS

If there is one thing I don’t get enough of in my 24 hour day, it’s sleep. Before I had my twins, you would see me get up before my alarm clock would go off. By the time I finished freshening up and was sitting in my closet trying to figure out what to wear…my alarm clock would start buzzing. I always had ample time to pull a look together, spend a few minutes in front of the mirror to put some makeup on and head to the kitchen to make a mean breakfast. Fast forward a few months later…

THE HEAVY THREE

In In my recent  blog post, I shared with all of you that I’m only 7lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. But since then, I’ve indulged in some chocolate and now I’m 10lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. At first, I was feeling really guilty. It became really easy for me to blame myself, and honestly, I was kind of embarrassed at the fact that I let my hard-work go so easily. I even started to wonder if I would ever reach my goal. Until I came across this amazing quote the other day that actually inspired me to share some of…

DIVING INTO DIY: LUXE MARBLE TRAY

Hi luv’s! I’ve been feeling really inspired by do-it-yourself projects recently. There are so many beautiful projects and they are literally a fraction of the cost if you were to buy the same product! Let’s be honest here, who doesn’t love saving money?! About a month ago, when I really started to get into this do-it-yourself obsession, I came across a square tile that I thought would be the perfect dimension for my own dream marble tray. You know those shopping trips where you go in to pick up one thing but then you end up leaving with 20 items, all of…

FUNDAMENTALS

Finding your perfect handbag can seem like an overwhelming task. Not only are there hundreds of designers to chose from, there are also varying price points, styles, materials, colours, sizes, straps, pockets, and closures (just to name a few). I couldn’t even tell you how much time I’ve spent browsing the latest handbag trends. Listen, I’m openly admitting that I have a handbag problem.. But for some reason I don’t really feel bad about it (haha). Let me tell you why.. I’ve always been a handbag fanatic, I literally used to dream about owning a designer bag. While I was…

SAFETY

If there is one item I wish I had before the twins were born, it would be the DockATot. Before my babies made their grand entrance, I spent a great deal of time decorating the nursery and getting everything I needed when it came to transportation, clothes, toys, and activities that would stimulate certain areas of the brain. I also read this article on SIDS and safety recommendations for safe infant sleeping from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Fast forward a few weeks later and I’ve developed a bad habit of sleeping in bed with my twins. It was so easy…

REDEFINE

If you’ve seen my Instagram post about my T3 Micro products, you’ve heard my hair-horror-story. Looking back, it’s hard to believe that I actually thought it was a good idea to use an iron on my hair. But hey, you live and you learn.. And trust me, I’ve learned that there are better ways to get great hair. Between taking care of the twins and running my platform, it can be really hard to find the time to make myself a priority. I lead a busy life, and realistically, you probably do too. Sometimes it just feels like there aren’t enough hours in the…

GREY LIST: MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

Hi Luvs, I have a confession to make. I usually plan my gifts for all my loved ones weeks in advance. I spend time figuring out what they need and have been eyeing lately.  This is usually followed by scouring the web to find that perfect gift for them at the best possible price. Fast forward to 2017 and becoming a mom for the first time, I am literally sitting on the couch watching my wee one’s finally sleep while I’m going through various apps on my phone searching for last minute gift ideas. If you are anything like me,…

ELEGANT

It’s been three months since I had my twins and I’ve almost lost all of the pregnancy weight. Only 7 lbs to go! But it hasn’t been so easy and celebratory. The last few months I have been feeling borderline frustrated about not being able to get back into my pre-pregnancy body. I had stacks of magazines constantly showing me celebrities looking amazing weeks after they had their baby, boasting titles like “My Body After Baby – How I lost 45-lbs in 5 weeks”.  I started to wonder what I was doing wrong! It took me a while to realize…

FOUR SEASONS TORONTO GETAWAY

As most of you already know, the hubs and I checked in for a staycation at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto during the Easter Break. What most of you might not know is that the Four Seasons has always been our home away from home for almost all of our travels. The first time we checked in at the Four Seasons was for our honeymoon. After our first stay at the Four Seasons, we were hooked on everything the hotel provided. From luxe accommodation, ideal location, impeccable service, amazing restaurants within the hotel, and the little extra touches they always add…
