CAR – LEASE OR BUY

Car – Lease or Buy? That is the question! I bought my 1st car in 2010 and it was one of the happiest days of my life – not even kidding. At the time, I was working as an auditor at an auditing firm and I was visiting clients daily. Not an easy task when you don’t have a car, trust me! There were times when I had to take a subway & 3 different buses to get to my client, dragging this brick called a laptop with me (they did not make them so light and airy back then)!…

FALL FASHION

I work in Fashion, so naturally I am drawn to trends, however Fall Fashion doesn’t have to be solely about trends, it should be about style & you can be stylish even if you’re discerning with trends, picking only those which fit your personal style. There is a difference between trends and style. Trends are seasonal and fade over time, especially fads (short lived trends). Style on the other hand is timeless, withstands the test of time, it’s classic, sophisticated, elevated & rich without being pretentious. Style is also very personal, so you should pick and choose what you like…
