DRINKS AT JOVERSE

I am always on the lookout for new places to go out & lately I have discovered this little gem in the heart of Old Montreal. This bar offers a variety of drinks & various appetizers. Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the food, as I only had some nachos, and let’s face it, those just are good no matter what, but I can definitely comment on the drinks & atmosphere! Drinks were very strong, so you get your money’s worth for sure! Music was good & not too loud, so you can still have a conversation without screaming. The place is hip,…

THE SECRET IS OUT!

Let’s face it ladies, getting a Victoria Secret Model body is a full time job, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try! ;) I came across this video of an awesome workout you can do at home if you don’t have time to go to the gym, or if that favorite TV show is on at 8pm, and it’s right in the middle of your evening. No equipment needed, just your body! Have a great workout girls :) Source: http://www.fitsugar.com/Victoria-Secret-Model-Full-Body-Workout-21416942  

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

Take a deep look in that mirror ladies, “you are more beautiful thank you think” – Source: http://www.upworthy.com/2-people-described-the-same-person-to-a-forensic-artist-and-this-is-what-happene?g=3 We are each others worst enemies. We criticize & bully oneselves constantly, but we can’t see ourselves through other people’s eyes. This short video demontrates that we don’t give each other enough credit & that other people see us in a better light than we do. It’s time to open our own eyes & see the beauty we possess, inside &  out. Smile ladies! Happy Tuesday! :)

Holiday Season is fast approaching & if you’re hosting Christmas parties, it’s time to start thinking about what you will bake! Have you ever tried making brownies ladies? I have the perfect recipe for you: OUTREAGOUS BROWNIES! They are true to their name, and even more so if you add some of my special ingredients!

DECISION TREE

While shopping, we often pick up things we don’t really need but we just don’t seem to be able to put down. How many of you ladies brought back something home that you regretted buying? Impulse purchases are bad purchasing decisions. They usually costs us a lot of money & end up making us very unhappy. An interesting article was posted on the BBC website featuring the picture below. It’s a decision tree to help us make better purchasing decisions, be it clothing, electronics, groceries, etc. Now, it’s easier said than done – this is not a miracle solution or a recipe for instant success.…

HEALTHIER SNACK

Ok, so we all have cravings. Even when we try our hardest to stay on track and be healthy, we crack. However, it’s actually a good thing to indulge once in a while. The guilt of the indulgence will make you more interested in eating salads the rest of the week. However, be smart about it ladies, if you’re going to have a “cheat” snack, have a homemade one. I love chips and salsa – one of my favorite snacks, but I don’t like salsa in jars that I find at the grocery stores, so I did some research on pinterest on…

Some believe that investing is a gamble, some let their investment advisors make all the decisions OR decide not to bother at all. Probably the main reason why the majority of individuals put investing aside is because…
