BACK TO WORK

It’s September – you know what that means: it’s Back to Work season! Time to roll up those sleeves and hustle hard! I’m actually really excited for this coming season. New city, new job, new projects – I’m ready for it all. I love the beginning of a new season, it’s full of possibilities and new opportunities. It’s time to re-set, re-evaluate and re-assess your priorities, habits & adopt new, better ones. No need to wait for those new year resolutions to start fresh. All you really need is a fresh mind (rested from a well deserved vacation) and maybe…

LIFE IN TORONTO – A MONTREALER’S PERSPECTIVE

I wanted to write a sequel to my previous article about life in Toronto, because it’s impossible to cover everything in one post without making it too long to digest! So, here is part 2 of my adventures and learnings about this city! A place to call home You probably heard about the real estate market in Toronto, but seeing is believing. I refused to think that I needed to pay double of my mortgage in Montreal to cover rent in Toronto. But, I had my standards: I wanted 2 bedrooms and I wanted to be close to downtown &…

MOVING A CAREER TO ANOTHER CITY

Moving a Career to Another City: Toronto Edition It’s official: I moved to Toronto! It was completely unplanned and unexpected – but a little Linkedin in-mail with a job proposition completely changed my life in the blink of an eye. It all happened so fast that I still don’t quite realize it. There is one thing I know for sure: it was all meant to be and I don’t regret it for a minute! Side tip: Always keep your Linkedin profile updated regardless whether you’re happy with your current job or not! You never know what opportunities are out there.…

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…

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,…
