NATURISTE

I’ve been trying to live a healthy life since January, and I must admit that it has not been easy! I’m constantly on the go & my schedule is always jam packed – sounds familiar? I bet! But, I have not let go of my resolution. I try as much as possible to work out in the morning and eat well throughout the day (with the occasional cheats, b/c well, life is too short, got to spoil yourself a little!) To help me with the craziness of life, I’ve been trying some Naturiste products which I wanted to share with…

HOW TO BEAT THOSE WINTER BLUES

Seems like everyone I speak to lately is feeling some sort of winter blues, including myself. It’s been an exceptionally cold and snow-filled winter here in Montreal and I think everyone just had about enough. Admit it, all you really want to do is crawl into a little ball and hibernate until the temperatures are above 10°C. I’ve been trying multiple things to get over those winter blues, and here is what worked for me: 1- Exercise: I know, you’re busy and don’t have time right? When you wake up in the morning, you’re EXHAUSTED, right? Well so am I,…

BOOKS I’VE BEEN READING LATELY

Guilty: I’m a huge bookworm! I love to read everything from motivational books to fiction to educational books, magazines and beyond. I thought that it would be fun to share some of my latest reads with you chix and maybe inspire you to read a bit more too. I never have enough time to read everything I want to read, but I try my best to find the time. Afterall, knowledge is power! So, read up #girlbosses! 1- 100 Healthiest Foods to Satisfy Your Hunger – TIME Special Edition (2017) – $17: Since January started, I’ve been taking my New Year’s…

MIXING PRINTS AND PATTERNS

Why is everyone so be scared of mixing prints & patterns ? Stipes & plaid blend so nicely together, it would be a crime to not give this combo a go! Don’t worry, you’ll still look professional and polished at work. You will stand out, but in the best possible way! I paired the look with a camel jacket (a timeless classic) and gave it a little bit of street credit with an embroidered miliary bag, a red bootie & a beanie. When it comes to mixing prints & patterns, there are a few rules to follow, but once mastered,…

RESORT WEAR WITH REITMANS

The winter has been tenecious so far. It’s only January and I’m already considering escaping to a sunny destination & thinking about resort wear! For those who have been following me for some time now, you know how much I love travelling and discovering new places. So, whenever I get a chance to take a vacation, I instantly start checking for travel deals. I’m actually checking Expedia as we speak…#notkidding. Even though I like to explore, I’m also a beach bum. I love going down south to Mexico or Punta Cana for a week just to relax & recharge my…

SKINCARE & MAKEUP ROUTINE

In this New Year, I decided to try some new additions to my skincare & makeup routine! Ok, that’s not completely true, I adopted these products a month ago, so that I could begin to see some results before I reported them to you!  Here are my thoughts:  1- Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair: Never go to sleep without washing your face, removing your makeup and applying a serum. Mark my words! Skin naturally renews at night, which means that it absorbes whatever is on the surface. So what do you rather your skin to absorb: old makeup clogging pores or…

RESOLUTIONS

It’s that time of the year again where we reflect back on 2017 & we come up with resolutions for 2018. Same thing, different year? I surely hope not! I’m gonna be honest with you guys, I never end up keeping my resolutions. Usually, they last for a few days and I go back to my old ways. So, I’ve been thinking about why that is recently. I came up with a simple conclusion: my goals were always unrealistic and not specific enough. Can someone actually lose 20 lbs in one month and how? Well, I guess if you starve…
