Hard work, determination, persistence and a great idea: that is how you start a blog!

WHAT TO WEAR TO AN INTERVIEW

First impressions are everything! We can fool ourselves all we want that looks don’t matter and we’re not judgmental, but it’s part of our DNA & it’s human nature – pure and simple. According to Psychology Today: “In fact, first impressions snap into place in just seven seconds […] We tend to get attached to our initial impressions of people and find it difficult to change our opinion of them. As a result, it’s important to be aware of how we come across to others during a first meeting” As such, first impressions can make or break your interview, no…

SHOPBOP SALE!!!

Shopbop’s Big Sale is ON and it’s time to snag some Spring favourites in a hurry because today is the last day! A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of checking out some of the novelties in person at Shopbop’s Spring Preview and fell in love with a stunning brand from Brazil called FARM Rio and since then, I really need to get my hands on one of their pieces! I also fell in love with the shell trend in necklaces and bracelets – I might need a matching set. My other must have piece is a new luggage!…

WINTER ESCAPE

It has been a cold and snowy winter here in Toronto and a very busy one at work. Like most of you ladies, I’ve been working quite a bit of overtime in the past couple of months and I am starting to run on fumes. Luckily, I am planning a nice little winter escape to Los Cabos in April, and this trip could not come at a better time – I need a break real bad! This getaway put me in a shopping mood and I browsed Shopbop‘s Spring/Summer trends to select some cute items to take with me on…

SELF CARE

Meditation: At the beginning of the year, I was invited to an event hosted by Shoppers Drug Mart with a focus on “getting a routine that gets you”, during which we got to do a couple of workshops focused on self care. It was the perfect way to start the New Year, but I’m usually terrible with resolutions, so I only started applying some of these valuable lessons in the past couple of weeks. Better late then never, and never too late to start ;) So I decided to finally take the time to pass on the wisdom that was…

NYFW OUTFIT DAY 4

For my NYFW outfit day 4, I wanted to pull all my outfits together into a cohesive bunch, so I chose this Zara leopard print skirt (old – also love this LIKELY Shopbop leopard skirt)! Since I started with leopard, I thought I could end with leopard ;) As already mentioned in my post from NYFW day 1, animal print is IN, so I decided to stack print on print with these Aldo snake print ankle boots. Don’t be afraid to mix different prints together ladies, leopard and snake print mix very well together! I wanted to give this outfit…
