BLAZER

Never underestimate the power of a blazer. It adds a polished vibe to any outfit. It can spruce up a casual look, or add a touch of power and elegance to an office look. When you get the perfect blazer that fits like a glove, you feel amazing and confident. You can take on anything! When I was a kid, I would make sure I would leave my home for school at the same time my next door neighbor would leave her home for work. I would see this woman who exuded power, grace and confidence walking with a take…

REPEAT OFFENDER

When I don’t know what to wear or don’t have the time to put a look together, I always turn to the end of my closet and reach for something black. Why the end of my closet? Well the OCD in me has color coordinated my closet – seriously! Everything in my closet is arranged from white to black. It’s even categorized by apparel type – tops, bottoms, dresses, one piece, suits and jackets. All of it color coordinated. I recently bought this asymmetrical top and matching trousers for my first date with the hubs since we had the twins. I wanted…

LAVELLE

When I dine at a restaurant, I don’t spend enough time looking up and admiring the decor. Sad isn’t it? The owner spends a great deal of time working along side with decorators to help create an environment that’s inviting with the perfect layout that entices their diners to stay and forget about walking out of their doors. In the King West area, you can find some pretty amazing restaurants that have great decor along side some pretty tasty food. Today I want to share with you a restaurant that you will see favorited by Toronto Instagrammers, Lavelle. I have been to…

INFLUENCE

We are all influenced by someone. They have the power to change us in how we view life, interact with people, and manage our career. When it comes to style, who I am influenced by changes depending on the season and whose style speaks to me on a personal level. Lately I have been drawn to Olivia Palermo’s style. Her overall look is always crisp, chic and polished.  Last week I went shopping with some friends at Guess and saw these gorgeous peg leg pants that screamed Olivia Palermo. They were chic, crisp, and sophisticated. I was drawn to the…

EXPLORER

When I first got my driver’s license, I dreamed about having an SUV as my first vehicle. Coming from the west-coast, I had a great love affair with the outdoors. I used to hike once a week, go whitewater rafting around the Squamish/Whistler area, rock climb near Squamish Rock and let’s not forget the endless bus rides I’d take to Stanley Park just so I could go for a run around the sea-wall. The outdoors was my zen and having an SUV was the perfect vehicle to hold all of my equipment so that I could run off and do what I…

PRIORITY

One of the most frequent questions I get asked by my mentees is how I manage my time. We all have 24 hours a day, 168 hours a week to our disposal. This is a lot of time, yet somehow we all comment that we don’t have enough to do what we want. After I had my twins, I was surviving on four hours of sleep a day and spent the rest of my time primarily looking after my twins, meal planning, and squeezing in a few hours for my blog. I would constantly comment to my husband that I didn’t…

INDULGENCE

One of the important lessons I have learned while working in a demanding career is taking some me-time at the end of the day. From morning to early evening I am on the go from attending and conducting meetings, product planning, running various analyses in software, plus juggling a thriving influencer career in social media.  With all of this on my plate, it’s tough to harness a bit more energy to cook a meal. Especially when it’s Bachelor night. When my girls and I get together, we want something that’s quick, easy and delicious. Lucky for  me, I just partnered…

PARISIAN BEAUTY

We are a few days away from Valentine’s Day and I am all ready to embrace some serious color that will help me feel mischievous, seductive and elusive. Last year I stumbled upon Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire collection and fell head over heels in love with their nail lacquer and lip colour collection. The colors were vibrant, saucy , and perfumed. Yes, you read it correctly…perfumed. This year, they added some new colors to their nail lacquer and lip colour collection and the most amazing mascara that can help you contour each last to get mega volume, curl and length.…

THREE HEARTS

The last 38 weeks plus 3 days have been an amazing journey, feeling our twins grow directly beneath my heart. Today I wanted to share a personal post with you from all of the things we did to help conceive our babies to what it was like being pregnant with twins. My husband and I tried to have a baby a few months after returning from our trip to Africa. Since I had to take malaria prevention tablets before, during and after our trip, I wanted to make sure I was completely off the malaria prevention tablets and have the drugs out…

BABY SHOWER

For someone who packed up her bags and left her family and close friends on the west-coast to be with ‘the one’, I am so grateful for the incredible amount of  love I have received from my husband’s family and our new found friends for Zayn & Reyha! I couldn’t think of a better day to share this post than the day of the birth of our twins. When I look at my life, there is so much to be grateful for – my husband, health, family, friends, career, and opportunities, but the one thing I feel the most grateful for…
