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 »

Are you headed on a little winter getaway on a tropical island ? With the weather reaching well over -10 degrees these days,  everyone is headed somewhere tropical. I have no vacation plans so far , however that won’t stop me from daydreaming.“On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant” Christian Dior. I could not agree more with the above statement. Vacation is the time to let loose, but still  look chic. Read More »

Best Plus Size Workout Clothes and Activewear

After the holidays, I remembered that I had not hit the gym within the last three weeks. Say what? You and I both know that it can be tough to be motivated to hit the gym during the holidays. Come to think of it the weather has not been great either. I am still feeling a little guilty to have fallen off the wagon. Until now, I’ve been able to maintain my routine even if it was for 30 minutes a day.I try not to be hard on myself. Besides, I did a lot of walking at the mall hunting for gifts. The Gear Fit 2 from Samsung also helped me stay on top of all my activities ( more on that below) Read More »
