I will tackle subjects like financial knowledge regarding Savings, Debt, Budgeting, Retirement Planning, Investing, etc., as well as financial behaviors & attitudes…

TRAVEL IN STYLE

When I travel, I like to travel in style! My family & close friends live in Montreal so I often travel between Toronto & Montreal, sometimes for a weekend getaway and sometimes for a week. Since I work from home now, if I decide to stay for the week, I need to pack all the essentials: laptop, charger, portable mouse & keyboard, clothes, shoes, and other personal effects. I end up taking 5 different bags to fit my entire life and it typically requires multiple trips to the car! After going through the motions a couple of times, I decided…

CoolSculpting

My Coolsculpting experience The best outfit a woman can wear is confidence. When you dress yourself in confidence, you walk taller, you speak louder & you live life happier! This confidence comes from self-esteem, when you love yourself inside & out. In order to achieve this balance, you need to perform self-care that encompasses body, mind & soul. If you don’t feel good in your skin, you need to dig deep into the root of the problem and give yourself permission to change & do something about it. For me, that came in the form of taking care of my…

HOW TO MAKE POUR OVER COFFEE

Caffeine is life and it’s a work from home essential, so I wanted to pass on the knowledge I recently gained on how to make pour over coffee at home! Pour over coffee accentuates the flavors & aromas of coffee and allows you to really personalize your perfect brew. Funny story: When I was a student at university, I used to take my coffee with 4 milks & 4 sugars (crazy right?!). I partially blame the coffee at the accounting firm I worked at, it was weak & tasted horrible so the milk & sugar was a must. But, overtime,…
