POWER SUIT

A perfectly tailored suit commands power & respect in the workplace, but it can also be a bold fashion statement. In a nutshell, it’s the perfect #girlboss outfit! Contrary to the traditional idea of the suit being boring (thinking over-sized black pants & huge shoulder pads with no structure), the fashion industry has been perfecting the image of the suit by introducing bold colors (like this red suit), prints & patterns, as well as modern details such refined trims (eg. big white buttons) and updated hardware (eg. belts & buckles). The over-sized blazer has taken its place in the fashion…

REVERSA SAVED MY SKIN

You read that correctly, Reversa saved my skin! For as long as I can remember, I always had good skin (aside from those awkward teenage years where some acne decided to appear on my face, but it was gone as soon as it came)! Then, something happened. **Personal story alert**  A few months ago, I had stopped taking the birth control pill. Now, before you jump the gun and start making assumptions, let me explain! I’m not planning on a baby anytime soon, but it’s been years that I have been on the pill and I just really wanted to…

SEPHORA FOR CHRISTMAS

Sephora did it again! Their Holiday Collection is so on point! This store has always been my go-to for all things beauty! Yes, I have earned their VIB Rouge status (don’t judge, lol), as I am a little bit makeup obsessed and so are my mom, sister & girlfriends – bottom line: between the 3 of us + gifts, it’s easy to spent that $1K/year. Especially that Sephora carries a wide range of products from so many great brands, including their own Sephora Collection (Ad). That collection is always so well packaged & the price/quality ratio is unbeatable. Below are…

WOMEN OF INFLUENCE EVENING SERIES – DEBBIE TRAVIS

Last week, I had the opportunity of attending my first event with Women of Influence – a part of their evening series which featured Debbie Travis!

As you probably already know, Debbie Travis is a television icon, a business woman & a proponent of change. During the event, she talked about her path in life, her achievements and how she re-invented herself yet again by following her long time dream of opening a hotel in Tuscany. She…
