DIY Cover Up With Pom Poms ( kaftan)

How to make a pom pom cover-up kaftan- Chic Punta Cana all inclusive all adult resort

I few weeks before my trip to Punta Cana With Sunwing vacations, I started looking around for cover ups. I wanted a fun and colorful one that I could wear both in and out of the beach. Sadly, the ones that really caught my eyes did not come in my size. I am sure you know the rest of the story. Frustration and anger started to get the best of me. To think that in 2017 we still can’t find what we love when it comes to clothing is unbelievable. With my minimal sewing skills, I made one for myself and this is the result. It was inspired by this Pom-pom Trim Beach Cover-up that Merrick Art made a few years back. Check out her post for all the instructions on how to make your own cover up. Feel free to also check these stores on Etsy  for some options. Read More »

Things To Know before buying A Home Part 1

3 Things to consider before buying a home   Are you thinking about buying a home soon? In today’s post, I’ll share with you a few things to know and consider before taking the leap.We bought our current home almost four years ago.The whole process of buying a home was everything but fun. The part I enjoyed the most was checking other people way of life and house decors. Thankfully it was our second time, and we came in with a lot of knowledge. We avoided a lot of mistakes we did when we bought our first place. The process was incredibly long and even stressful at times, but it was all worth it when we walked in our home for the first time. There’s so much that goes into buying a home.  I would like to touch on a few things we considered before buying our first and second home. This list is valid for first-time buyers as well.

Netflix & Chill With The New Download Feature

Netflix & Chill With The New Download FeatureWho watched the Oscars Sunday night? It was one of the best Oscar shows I’ve watched in a while. Everything went smoothly until the last few minutes off course. I felt so bad for the winners who ended up losing, but happy that Moonlight took it home. The star of the night was Mahershala Ali. I’ve seen him in so many shows on Netflix including, House of Cards, Luke Cage, and Suit to name a few. He is an incredible actor. Read More »

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.

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 »
