8 Plus Size Ethical and Eco-Friendly Clothing Brands

 Plus Size Ethical and Eco-Friendly Clothing BrandsThis post has been in-demand ever since I collaborated with World Vision Canada to promote  World Day against child labor last year. Every now and then, I get an email begging me to finally fulfill my promise to share the best plus size ethical and eco-friendly brands available in North America and beyond. At first, I was very reluctant because I run a lifestyle blog that features products from all kind of brands. In another word, this blog is by no means an example of how to lead a sustainable lifestyle. Then, I thought why not? Part of my job as blogger is to share information and help others.

Many people (myself included) are guilty of amassing piles of clothes, shoes and barely use half of them. As much as I try to buy less and invest in quality pieces, I still have a thing for fast fashion. I have no issue admitting that I am part of the problem. I am willing to take small steps toward changing my buying habits, be part of the solution by investing more and more in plus size ethical fashion brands.

Valentine’s Day With Boston Pizza + Help a Kid get a Mentor

Toronto lifestyle blogger talks about the importance of mentorship with Boston Pizza

Every now and then, you meet that one person that will help shape your life. Most times you won’t see it happen. When you look back at your life and career, you can’t help but notice the person who was there to offer valuable life experience and advice when you needed it. The one that pushed you to challenge yourself. The one that helped you take difficult decisions and encouraged you to continue building and living your dreams.

I was privileged to have met such an amazing person and it’s none other than my husband. Read More »

Travel Wish list

The husband taking photos while in Cancun,Mexico in 2015

Do you have a travel wish list ? Every year I make a long list of places I would love to visit with my family or by myself. Unfortunately, I don’t make it to every place on my list due to lack of time and or money.Traveling and decorating our home are two things I am planning to invest and focus on this year.Today, I’m sharing a few travel destinations I would love to visit in 2017. The list includes cities from around the world and within Canada. I must confess that going through airports is not my fave thing to do, especially with recent events.  Last year was fantastic; we were able to go to New York, Mont Tremblant, Great Wolf Lodge as a family. I went to Dubai with my sister, and Boston to visit my family. Not bad for a year.

Turn your Pillow cover Into Art

Turn your Pillow cover Into Art - more on mycurvesandcurls.com

Our guest bedroom is slowly coming together. I can’t wait until the big reveal day ! In the meantime here is a little sneak peek of what the bedside will eventually look like. I say eventually because this girl changes her mind all the time. By the time you see the final product the little spot might look different. I recycled the 2-drawer chest from the boys bedroom and added to some handles to make it look a bit more expensive. This was one of my favorite and simplest Ikea hacks ever. Read More »

Spring Wish List Ft Primaala

 

Happy Monday Loves ! I hope you’ve managed to survive another week of extreme cold. I kept myself busy all weekend with house work and I am also in the midst of redoing our guest bedroom (pictured) which will be revealed on the blog soon.

Since I’ve transitioned to a full-time blogger, my days can run anywhere from dropping the kids to school, brand meetings, pulls to events. The less I think about what to wear in the morning the better. That’s why I am adding more classic, timeless and quality pieces to my wardrobe. Read More »
