We were going out to a dinner party that night and…

LUXURY TRAVEL TO PUNTA CANA WITH SUNWING

Exhausted from packing & unpacking our lives during our move from Montreal to Toronto & drowning in a sea of what seemed to be endless boxes, we needed a vacation! Ismael and I both love to travel and explore new places like Greece and Croatia, but this time we were craving a relaxing & stress-free holiday in a luxury, all-inclusive resort. The last time we went to a resort was 4 years ago and I had fond memories of coming back from the vacation in a state of total relaxation, batteries re-charged! So, were more than thrilled to be whisked…

NATURISTE

I’ve been trying to live a healthy life since January, and I must admit that it has not been easy! I’m constantly on the go & my schedule is always jam packed – sounds familiar? I bet!

To help me with the craziness of life, I’ve been trying some Naturiste products which I wanted to share with…

HOW TO BEAT THOSE WINTER BLUES

Seems like everyone I speak to lately is feeling some sort of winter blues, including myself.

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?

CHRISTMAS HOME DECOR WITH INDIGO

I never finished decorating my house before December (I’m usually more of a ‘oh tomorrow is Christmas’ kind of person during this time of the year since I’m so busy)!
