Off The Shoulder And White Crop Denim

I hope y’all had an amazing week! I sure had a busy one. I’d like to say that’ll take it slow this weekend but who am I kidding? With summer rolling in there is so much to do around the house. I am working on a fun project for the blog and hoping to finish painting the pergola in the backyard. Talking about summer, how cute is this outfit? I think it is the perfect combo for both spring and summer. It features two trends I am loving this season – The cropped pants and off the shoulder. You may think, I am a bit bias because I am the off the shoulder girl, but who wouldn’t want to show a little skin especially when it’s hot outside. Read More »

Life is too short not to love yourself. This is coming from a woman that has learned to be confident and love every inch of her body.

Everything has changed, because I decided that I had only one life to live and I must make the best of it. Read More »

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 »
