LITTLE RED DRESS

What screams Christmas more than a Little Red Dress? I found this little gem at Zara a few months ago & I fell in love with the lace details at first sight! The upper back is covered with lace as well and it’s just stunning. I think red is such a romantic & sexy color & it looks amazing on any skin tone. This dress is a combination of sexy & chic and it’s just perfect for the holidays. It’s also easily transferable from winter to summer. I adore it! I’m wearing this one to my Christmas party at work :) Have…

HOLIDAY COOKIES

  Recipe: https://sites.google.com/site/hungryhousewifeprinterversion/cut-out-sugar-cookies-and-icing I have been browsing Pinterest & magazines for ideas on what to bake for the Christmas dinner parties I will be hosting this year & I found these adorable pastel cookies that I will be baking next week to bring over to a friends gathering. I love the pastel colors, but if you prefer the traditional red, green & white cookies, you can easily use different icing dyes. You can also have fun with the shapes – Christmas trees, snowmen, or even hearts, why not? I think these will impress my guests & will make great stocking stuffers as well for my co-workers &…

SPARKLY BLACK DRESS

Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday & I am really excited to share this 1st holiday post with you girls! We will all soon attend parties at work, with family or friends, and we need to dress the part. One of the best dresses for the holidays are sparkly & fun sweater dresses. They look gorgeous & they keep you cozy & warm :) The sparkly details of this dress give it great visual interest. It’s perfect for the holidays, but it can easily be worn to other occasions – it’s very versatile. I bought this dress at Victoria Secret two years ago and so far have worn it to a Christmas…

APPETIZERS

Tomato canapés Are you having friends over tonight & rushing to prepare dinner?  Well, if you’re anything like me, you want things to be perfect but fast. Unfortunately fast & perfect don’t always go hand in hand! Also, I like to give my guests a healthy appetizer, especially if lasagna is the main course. I have two recipes for appetizers I would like to share with you ladies to elevate some of the burden. The 1st one is something I just threw together when I was rushing the other day for a second dinner in a row that I was…

LA CHAMPAGNERIE

  The experience: Have you ever cut a bottle of champagne with a saber? It’s one of those experiences you feel excited, scared & intrigued about! That’s how I felt when I 1st tried it. What a sense of accomplishment when you do it right the 1st time & the champagne is drinkable! If you’re looking for a trendy place for a 5@7, look no further – La Champagnerie is the newest hot spot in Old Montreal. The good music, the dim lighting & the overall hip atmosphere lure in the crowds. If you don’t make a reservation, especially for larger groups, you…

25 RIDICULOUSLY HEALTHY FOODS

We make bad food choices all the time. We pick up coffee & muffins in the morning at a cafe next door, we grab quick lunched loaded with calories, and we have late night dinners. We all know it’s not healthy, but we do it anyway! Sometimes it’s b/c we’re running late, and other times b/c we’re either misinformed or we just simply don’t care. I came across this blog entry on Pinterest and I really wanted to share it with you girls! The list is filled with foods that are not only good for you but also quite delicious. So think twice before grabbing that piece of cake, and…

BORN TO RULE

Happy Monday girls! I just love love love graphics & prints, they add interest to any outfit, especially fun ones like this one. Just throw on a pair of jeans, a graphic top & blazer, and you have an instant outfit! :) That’s what I did today! This outfit is casual but edgy & since I work in an informal office, it was work appropriate! To add a pop of color, I put on bite lipstick in Corvina shade. I could have also added a colorful bag to add a splash of color. What are you wearing this morning ladies? Don’t forget, you were “born to rule” ! :)…
