WILLOW & THREAD

It’s September, which can only mean one thing: it’s ‘Back to Work’ Season! Now, they say that the beginning of a New Year is the time to press on the “Reset” button, but I think this time of the year is even better to start over. You’re refreshed after a very well deserved vacation & you’re ready to conquer the world! On the menu: Eating healthier, working out more (to prevent winter hibernation of lbs) and of course refreshing the wardrobe! Two weeks ago, I attended a VIP event held by Reitmans for their top Willow & Thread clients and…

SANTORINI

How can anyone resist the charm of Santorini Island? The caldera view, the sights of Fira & Oia towns hanging on tops of a steep cliff, the little shops & cafes…I could get lost just sitting there admiring the views.

Where to stay: Ira Hotel – without hesitation! The hotel is absolutely stunning and luxurious. The rooms are cozy, comfortable and large, but nothing beats the pool & sunbathing area. Facing the…

WEDDING SEASON – SMILE BILLIANT TO THE RESCUE

  Wedding season is all about smiles! I got married last year and the at home teeth whitening kit I used seriously gave me the confidence to smile all day long. I’m a huge coffee addict, I drink 2-3 cups a day to be functional and I like my coffee black – no milk, no cream (you must be thinking ‘yuck’ but that’s the only way I can drink it now). Honestly, if I don’t have my 2nd or 3rd cup in the pm, I simply can’t do anymore work! I tried the whole ‘drink coffee with a straw’ thing,…

Countless hours! Basically, anytime I don’t spend at my 9-5 job, I…
