COLORISTA

Photo credit: IG @anastasia.dudka.photo I’ve been wanting to try out a cool hair colour lately, but I’ve been too afraid. In fact, I’ve always been like that with my hair. My natural hair color is a dark blonde/light brunette, and for the longest time I wanted to go light blonde. Since I was so afraid, my 1st attempt was a major fail: I asked the colorist to give me very subtle blonde highlights and she politely obliged, but that meant the color did not show one bit. The second time, I got a lot more brave and I did blonde…

THE GREEN COAT – DARE TO WEAR

So apparently the 1st day of Spring has come and gone, and it’s still ‘Frozen’ out there (no green in sight, wink wink)! But, I’ve been trying to pull out my Spring coats nevertheless, including this green stunner from Vero Moda that I recently bought at Bestsellers in Carrefour Laval. SS18′ is all about color: Lavender, Pink, Yellow, Blue, Green, Red – the more you pop, the more trendy you shall be! I cannot even begin to tell you how many compliments I have received on this coat. In fact, when my mom saw it, she got mad at me…

ONE SUIT – 3 WAYS

In collaboration with Le Chateau The power suit is not only the hottest fashion trend right now, but it’s also a professional woman’s staple for more reasons than one. Wearing a suit makes you confident, it lands you an interview and of course, it can be mixed and matched with multiple pieces in your wardrobe to create different looks that will take you from day to night! I took this stunning heather grey suit to show you how easy it is to achieve 3 outfits using the same blazer. First outfit: Le Chateau Crosshatch Belted Wrap Blazer // Le Chateau…

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,…
