HOSTING

I love summer as much as anyone else, but I what I love more than summer is having my friends over for a BBQ party. With Canada Day around the corner, I will be hosting my very first Canada Day BBQ with some of my close friends and family. Plus, I plan on hosting two more BBQ parties this summer – one with an amazing set of ladies who all became mom’s between December 2016-April 2017, and the second for a friend who will be coming over for a visit from Congo. To my friend who I know reads my blog, yes…

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.

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…
