I am so proud to be collaborating with two businesses that every single woman needs in her repertoire: eShakti & Watch Over Me App! One concerns your online shopping fears and the other your safety, so read on ladies!
How many times did you go into a store, picked up an item and said: “I like it, but.. if it was shorter, longer, tighter, looser… or in my size” – story of my life!!! Hence why I am super excited to collaborate with eShakti – an apparel company offering sizes 0-36W & custom clothing. No matter your size, shape or style, this online boutique is for you! No more being scared of shopping online, b/c these pieces will fit you like a glove, literally! Here is how it works:
1-Pick a style you like. I chose this beautiful lace-up split neck shift dress. It’s on trend, classy & chic – a LBD never goes out of style! I love the lace up detail, which is all the rage this Fall. The quality is great and I will get a lot of wear out of this piece for sure! If you don’t know where to start, I included my top 3 favorite picks at the bottom of this post, aside from this dress!
2-Fill out your measurements :height, weight, etc
3-Customize your pick to fit your style – I opted for long sleeves instead of the 3/4 ones, since I wanted this dress for Fall and I kept the pockets :) Your piece will be hand crafted and delivered to your door within 2 weeks.

Whether it’s broad daylight or night time, women get approached by men all the time. Sometimes it’s an innocent “Sorry, you seem to have dropped your phone number…” line, but other times it’s not innocent at all. Even when we’re careful, the unexpected may occur, and that is why I would like to introduce the app that every woman should download on her phone RIGHT NOW: Watch Over Me app!!! It’s free of charge and it can save your life. This app works in Canada, USA, Asia & Europe! Here is how it works:
Step 1: Download the free app on your cellphone & if you feel unsafe, open up the app & click Start:
Step 2: The app will ask you for how long you want to be watched for – you input the time frame (I entered 5 mins in the example below) and the app will track your location. You can share pictures & add notes if you like.
Step 3: When the time elapses, the app will ask you: Are you safe? If you do not tap in safe, the app will automatically alert your loved ones, the ones you have listed in your contacts – your safety network. If you have safely arrived to your destination before the time is up, just tap in I’m safe, just to be sure your loved ones are not alerted and panic for no reason!
Another awesome feature of this app is ‘Safer Streets’ – although this has only been launched in Chicago for now. This feature basically locates you & tells you about the safety rating of the area you are in. It does so by integrating official crime data, social data, etc. Once this feature becomes available, I think everyone must have it. Imagine travelling to a new city or country where you never been before and not knowing whether you can safely roam the streets! This app will let you know which streets to avoid – basically your guardian angel!
In addition, you can upgrade your free app to a premium for only $4.99 / year – peanuts! This upgrade permits you to send out emergency alerts regardless of your safety network’s internet connection, even if they are offline. Even if you’re overseas, you don’t pay for the roaming charges! Watch Over Me is generous enough to upgrade the app to 2 lucky ladies! Ladies, you absolutely need this app – nothing is more important than your safety! To participate in the giveaway, follow 3 easy steps:
1- Download the free app
2- Comment below telling me you have made your safety a priority!
Winners will be drawn at random & announced in a week!
Good luck ladies & STAY SAFE!
AND THE WINNERS ARE: FANIE & ELI! CONGRATS!!!
P.S. Here are my top 3 picks from eShakti:
Drape front belted long jacket – I would make it a tad longer.
Jersey knit turtleneck dress – I would make it shorter and do a long sleeve.
Graphic art print satin dress – I would not change a thing ;) I would just fill out my measurements!
