As we welcome the Holiday Season...

Happy Sunday Everyone,

I hope you enjoyed thanksgiving with your family and closed friends. Now it's officially Christmas time. As many of us started to put our decorations up I have a good excuse not to do mine - at least for now. I am planning to put some decorations on today outside of the house. With the twins around, I will have to wait a little more for the christmas tree or I will have nothing left on the tree by the 24th. Not that I am complaining, I am feeling so lazy just thinking about setting up the tree lol.


Confidence 101: 12 Habits of a Confident Woman you Should Have

Confidence has a massive impact on how you live and enjoy life. Happy and confident people ooze positivity all the time and positively influence everyone they interact with.

For instance, use your body language to communicate, stand tall, develop a positive attitude, and change your lifestyle altogether.

If you have fussy or sensitive skin, it might seem like you always have to walk on eggshells to take extra good care of it.

How to Balance Proportion when Styling your Outfit

Hi Everyone,

Happy Tuesday! I hope this post finds you well. Balancing proportions is about styling your outfits to create an overall aesthetic harmony. The way you achieve this is by wearing clothes that are fitted to your body shape. When you want to play with oversized clothes or unusual shapes, make it a fashion moment by keeping the rest of the look fitted. For example, try pairing a tight crop top with wide-leg jeans, or a puff-shoulder top with straight-leg pants.


How to create a Wardrobe that suits your lifestyle

Hi everyone,

Happy weekend! Remember this post where I was confused between how I hate distressed denim and how I actually like those jeans? I didn't like the destroyed trend then and  I'm still not on board but I kept the overly destroyed denim. Mostly because they fit me like a glove and I think that I can get away with them if I dress them up. Anyway, I hope you won't be bored as I also have another post coming with me again wearing the same denim one more time (but just one more time, I swear). So speaking of, is your current wardrobe suits your lifestyle?

20 Fragrances I will be wearing for Fall 2020

 Hi everyone,

How have you been? it's been a while. Lately, I have been pretty busy. In a good way, I will give you more details on what I have been up to on Thursday. For today, I would like to talk about Fragrances. I felt so tired on Monday morning. I have been working non stop for the past 15 days ( all day everyday - no day off- no weekend) and I did not have a chance to eat breakfast. As I was trying to expedite a special order for a client I felt the need to put some perfume on ( I had a new scent on that I was testing but it was too weak). So I opened my purse and found a decant of Agent Provocateur Intense and OMG, my spirit felt uplifted right away, as well as my client who was coming from a hospital night shift - just by smelling it in the air. Needless to say that today's post had to be perfumes related.

Fall 2020 Fashion Trend

Hi everyone,

My last post was all about my disappointment on the lack of creativity fashion wise for this coming fall.

So for today here's my top 10 picks.

Hi everyone, 

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all doing well. I wanted to talk about the fashion trends for Fall 2020 but there hasn't any major change in the fashion industry since Spring 2020.

Just be creative: Add a blazer on top of that cute summer dress, add a belt and your fedora hat, a pair of booties and you are ready to go. So for today's post, I am sharing my 10 must-haves fall wardrobe pieces.

*This post is sponsored by Adidas USA. However, all opinions are my own.

Hi everyone,

With running and walking replacing my regular gym training session, staying motivated is a challenge. For me, the ultimate motivation source to stay active during this dark and uncertain time is how I look and feel in my athleisure gear. Not a huge fan of flats in general so finding the perfect pair of running shoes that are not only suitable for the job but also give me the confidence I need to feel good and pretty is everything.  Lately, I have been using those Adidas running shoes and they checked all the boxes for me as far as comfort, style, and stability. Here are the top 5 reasons why I love these running shoes:

Hi everyone,

Back to school is right around the corner, if it hasn't knocked at your door already. This pandemic creates a lot of chaos and we are just trying to make the most of it not to lose our mind or the time that is passing by and is never coming back. With that said, schools and the Ministry of Education are doing their best to recover as much as possible therefore some children are already going to school for 2 weeks now, some are still waiting for their turn while others plan on continuing online schooling. If you are a parent that has children that are physically going back to school then this post might be able to help - hoping that it doesn't come too late. 


The Ultimate Self-Care Ritual

Give yourself permission to practice self-care rituals that prioritize your own standards of happiness. In today’s busy, over-stimulated world, taking the time to slow down can often feel overly indulgent and unproductive, but it’s actually the opposite. Allowing yourself the time and space to rest and revive is one of the best ways to stimulate clarity and increase an overall sense of happiness.



Hi everyone,

Over the years, I’ve bought many things that I don’t really need. I’m sure most of you have, too. After all, many of us have been raised in an instant-gratification culture. We grew up constantly bombarded with visions of shiny new toys. The media knows how to push our want buttons. Our friends show us the cool stuff they just bought. We want. Our neighbors just got a cool new car or boat. We want. Same goes for clothing.


4 Steps to Self Empowerment

Hi everyone,

Happy Tuesday! I needed all the confidence in the world to pull off that overly distressed denim until I decided to do the look over with those black classy pants. Unfortunately, I felt more confident in the jeans. I love how they fit but I am not sure I should keep them. Anyway, today I wanted to talk about self-empowerment. The general meaning of Self-empowerment is taking control of our own life, setting goals, and making positive choices. Basically it means that we have to understand our strengths and weaknesses, and have belief in ourselves. To become more-self empowered, use this four-step process:


Benefits of a Personal Color Analysis Consultation

I hope you and your family are doing great.  Since people make value judgments about your appearance in less than 10 seconds, the impact of color is immediate and lasting.  The colors that you wear speak volumes about you without saying a word.  Wearing the right hues can make the difference of making a great impact or not so great impression.


My 2020 Summer Fragrances Picks

Hi everyone,

The season of wearing less is here, which means it’s the time to wear all your citrus, floral, and airy scents to the front of your vanity and spritz on a summer adventure.

Digging into my private collection, I found 12 summer "approved" fragrances for different occasions and I thought of sharing with you.

On the other hand, if we look towards our youth, what were the things that made us look young? It was, not having lines on our neck and forehead. We have simple yet smooth slips.

How to create the perfect capsule wardrobe

Hi everyone,

When it comes to our closets, many of us are guilty of filling them with more items than we need. So, of course, getting dressed each morning can be stressful and confusing.

Hi everyone,

When it comes to casual catch-ups with friends, brunch is undoubtedly a favorite. After all, who doesn’t love debriefing with their besties about life, careers, and guys over coffee and croissants? Brunch is a meal eaten late in the morning that essentially combines both breakfast and lunch. It is a popular weekend activity for friends that generally takes place at cafes.

5 Fashion Faux-Pas you shouldn't be making after college

Hi everyone:

Happy Friday! How are you doing? I am a little tired and I'm trying to take it easy.. I hope to recover soon. Anyway, I was looking for inspiration for this post and came across a lady named "Kallie: that put up a list of 24 things that a woman over 30 should not wear. Apparently, by age 30, women are expected to be a little more mature, and they should dress like it too. I have a different opinion on the topic. To me women of all ages should dress according to their morphologie, color palette and lifestyle (her lifestyle would determine what she can or can't wear). Of course, when you are young, they will forgive you for that extra-inch shorter mini skirt or that all too tight pair of pants. However, I also think women of all ages should avoid looking too tacky or slutty. That brings me to today's post: Here's 5 fashion faux pas you shouldn't be making after college.

Create The Style That Works For You

Contrary to popular belief about style, it’s not actually a one shoe fits all approach that needs to be taken. When it comes to style, fashion, beauty and other things like this, people get so obsessed with what everyone else is doing, that they forget they are supposed to be creating a style that works for them.
