MANGO TARTAR

Over the long weekend we were hosting a dinner party & I needed a quick appetizer to prepare. I usually make a tartar (already gave you girls the recipe in my previous posts) but I wanted some variety, so I did some research and stumbled on this recipe: http://www.yuppiechef.com/spatula/salmon-tartare-with-mango-and-coriander/ I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like tartar! This recipe is perfect! I have eaten mango tartar in a restaurant before, but I was sacred to make it myself – honestly, it turned out great and everyone loved it. There is quite a few ingredients, such as sesame oil & wasabi…

JILLIAN MICHAELS BODY REVOLUTION

I have officially completed the 7 day kick start your metabolism program!!! Not eating carbs or sugar for 7 days straight is not easy, let me tell you that! Combine that with a series of exercises (30 mins workout and 30 mins cardio tapes a day) and you are on a mission! But, if it was easy, everyone would do it right? So, after this intense week, I have lost…drum roll… 6 lbs and my stomach has never been flatter :) This year I decided to keep my New Year’s Eve resolution! I’ve decided to get in shape before the summer…

STRIPES & SHORTS

Shorts season is coming soon! We got a little taste of it this week, but it’s back to cloudy & rainy – let’s hope that changes quickly :) This very simple outfit is great for a Sunday brunch or running errands. I bought these denim distressed shorts at Zara a few months ago actually, when it was still snowing outside b/c the fit is simply perfect. They go with pretty much anything in my wardrobe & they’re definitely perfect with this striped top from Gap. Similarly to scarves, I love stripes – I have multiple striped tops in various colors…

REGINE CAFE

                          I love all kinds of food, but breakfast must be my favourite meal of the day & I am always on the lookout for new restaurants that serve brunch. I heard about this little gem from some friends and I decided to try it out. Whether you have the Mish Mash (Omelet of the day – I was lucky to have it with mushrooms, goat cheese & caramelized onions) or a little bit of everything plate – both featured on the cover photo- the food is simply…

CELLULITE NO MORE!

Women have a misconception about what cellulite really is and that is the reason why we are not able to get rid of it! Before I researched it, I was in that same boat – thinking that cellulite was associated with fat, but it’s far from the truth. Even very skinny women can have cellulite. I decided to share this news with you ladies to save you from spending money on products & treatments that simply don’t work! I won’t bore you with the details and just get down to what you really need to know: 1- What is cellulite?…
