Bank fashion size guide
Is it too early to talk about Fall shopping? One, I am just trying to fulfill my blogger duties. Two, the heatwave we’ve been having as of late got me thinking about Fall. Today’s post is all about two pieces that I consider to be absolute essentials for surviving any Fall season: Cardigans and leggings. It may not be chilly enough yet, but it’s the perfect time of year to start adding some pieces to your wardrobe. Many of us missed out on the great deals of the Nordstrom sale but rest assured that there are still some good deals from other brands to grab now. Read More »
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a closet remix post here. Well, the arrival of IGTV kind of put me in the mood to start again. Filming a vertical video on my phone with minimal editing is a definite game changer. I know you guys love these posts because there is usually a look for everyone. The last time I was in the US, which was just 2 weeks ago I went to Target to pick up a few things. I was lucky to find this beautiful gingham top from the Who What Wear for Target collection on clearance. Since it was only I picked it up with a few other pieces. Read More »
A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Capital One Digital For Good Summit. The Summit is a free event designed to empower non-profit organizations and charities to use technology as a force for good. It also enables them to thrive in a digital future by providing them access to tech leaders and facilitating collaboration among like-minded peers.
I started my first blog almost ten years ago – Something that most people had never heard of before. If I am honest, I had no clue about what I was doing; I just wanted an outlet to express myself. Everything was going well until blogs and just about every other aspect of the Internet started to change. The introduction of social media, the realization that our voices do matter, the production of breathtaking photos and so forth. All of a sudden, hundreds of blogs were created daily and competition began to be fierce. It came to a point where if we didn’t start keeping up with all the changes, we would be left behind.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Mobile Shop. All opinions are 100% mine.
If someone had told me that one day all I would be able to capture my family vacations with a phone I would have laughed out loud. Seriously I would have. While calling smartphones the revolution of the century would be a big understatement, it’s nice to sometimes reflect on how these pocket-friendly devices have changed our day to day lives. As a mom and content creator, taking pictures is second nature; As far back as I can recall, I’ve always had some sort of camera with me documenting everything I came across. Of course, this got a lot more intense when my kids were born, I literally don’t go anywhere anymore without a camera.

Before becoming a mother, I loved the freedom I had to jump in the car or on a plane for a last-minute getaway. Even though my travels are not as frequent or spontaneous post-kids, I take every chance I get to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. Whether it’ll be a quick day trip near Toronto or a weekend getaway to Montreal, I never miss a chance.
We are so fortunate to be living in a province with a significant amount of family-friendly destinations. Today, I am taking you to Sherkston Shores, a beautiful resort just 90-minutes away from Toronto. This was our very first visit; it sure was the perfect way to start summer 2018. Over the course of five days, our getaway included a bit of relaxing and a lot of adventures. Read More »
This post was sponsored by WonderBra. The opinions are completely based on my experience. Thank you for supporting brands that make this blog possible!
I can’t talk about it enough, but the right undergarment is key when putting an outfit together. I can remember going shopping for clothes countless of times only to struggle for the right fit almost every time. I thought it was just I, or my body shape. It turned out I was just not wearing the right undergarments at the time of the try-ons. A bra has got
to be the right fit, texture, color, and style to compliment my outfit. Last year, I had the chance to work with WonderBra; I tried a few of their styles and quite honestly never turned back. In my previous post, I talked about the importance of getting yourself fitted at least every couple of years and how to be your own kind of wonderful. The
message still holds true. WonderBra wants every woman to feel amazing and sexy in her undergarments. They design pieces to ensure you are rocking any outfit with support and comfort you need. Read More »
Let’s talk about finances. I know it’s not everyone’s favorite subject especially given the limited amount of financial education we get from school. Seriously, why aren’t we taught about managing our money in school? I am certainly not an expert when it comes to money but after freelancing for a certain amount of years and married to someone who checks our bank accounts at least a couple of time a day, I have learned a thing or two.
There are many aspects of money management I’d like to touch on in the future but today I want to focus on budgeting and saving. I took a poll on my Instastories to find out what you guys struggle with the most and the result indicated that most people had issues with saving. Let’s just say in order to save you must know where your money is going. Budgeting is the most important step to conquering your finances. In other words, having a plan for your money is key. It allows you to plan your year and month based on your income. I’ve always been comfortable with managing my money even before freelancing- Shocking because I don’t like playing with numbers.

Yes, it has nothing to do with fashion or beauty but it will give you a little insight into how I manage my finances. Read More »
Do you ever feel like every time you blink, your kids grow an inch? My boys—Iby, 10, and Fadio, 7—have already outgrown the pants and shorts I bought for them at the beginning of the school year. With our vacation coming up, along with lots of family excursions to the museum, beach and amusement parks, I thought it was time to head to Marshalls to pick up a few trendy pieces for the boys that would mix and match well with their wardrobe staples. The goal was to create cute and comfortable looks that would work for all the summer adventures ahead of us. While I don’t believe in spending a fortune on kids’ clothing (they grow up so fast!), I do love to freshen up their looks every season. Marshalls is one of the best places to do that because it has new inventory every week and you can shop on a budget.

Details of this Maxi Dress here
I am currently sitting and facing the window of my office looking at an ice storm like we are not officially in Spring. On this side of the world, it seems as though mother nature has forgotten about us. While others in New York are enjoying days in T-shirt, we are getting ready to break the ice from the driveway. Since I been stocked home since Friday I have decided to put together a list of my favorite plus size maxi dresses of the season. Read More »
