Apple Picking At Chudleigh’s Farm

I am starting to feel that little chill in the air. That could only mean one thing- sweater weather is here.  You know what else that means? Fun Fall activities are near. Grab your baskets and prepare to be amazed by the scenery as I take you to a  fun filled day at Chudleigh’s Farm. What a difference a year makes! Last year when we went apple picking, the kids were so much smaller. I never knew that documenting our little life through this blog would bring me so much joy.

4 perfect Fall Lipsticks For Dark Skin Women

Fall Lipsticks For Dark Skin Women- Assa Cisse

I must admit, I love creating these lipstick posts. It’s not because of my lipstick obsession, but because I always find one or two that I have not worn in a while. Today’s post is all about Fall lipstick options that are perfect for dark skin tones.  Whether it’s Fall or not, I tend to gravitate toward darker lipstick shades. It doesn’t mean that darker shades are better on dark skin, just a personal choice. The darker the color the more drama it adds to your face. The options are endless and picking only four out my collection was not easy. Read More »

Joe Fresh Plus Size Line Review

Joe Fresh extended line- Fall editionWhen I heard the news that Canadian clothing retailer, Joe Fresh was launching a plus size line or I should say extending their line for its fall collection, I was excited, to say the least. I have squeezed myself in many of their pieces in the past so the news that some of the new merchandises will go up to size 3x was absolute music to my ears.

As a visible fat woman, plus size, whatever you want to call it, it’s always a win when a brand decides to add a plus size line or better yet simply extend their original line. It’s an acknowledgment that women like me love fashion and deserve to look good. And….. nothing like a one stop shop, grocery, and clothes shopping will be completed together.

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 »

The Confidence Checklist: 3 ways to be more confident

The Confidence Checklist: 3 ways to be more confident Assa cisse from mycurvesandcurls.com

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. I am not talking about when I am wearing makeup or beautiful clothes, but loving myself with all my imperfections. People tell me I’m confident! I agree, but the road to self-confidence has not been an easy one I must confess. There were times when I didn’t feel good enough, pretty enough, or cool enough. Everything has changed, because I decided that I had only one life to live and I must make the best of it. Read More »

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.

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 »
