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 »

Happy Sunday !  It’s been such a lovely week weather wise. I cannot believe we hit 20 degrees in the middle of February. This global warming thing is no joke.  Anyways, sorry for not sharing my favourite posts last week. I was so busy with work and the kids that I barely read anything.  Last night celebrated something special with my husband. We went to Mysteriously  Yours which was nothing short of amazing. If you ever make it Toronto you must absolutely check it out.  Here are my favorite posts of the week. 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.

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.
