Summer Brunch: What to Wear?



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. A brunch outfit is an ensemble worn for this specific occasion. While there are no strict rules on what to wear to brunch, most ladies aim for a chic yet casual aesthetic with clothes that are comfortable and fashionable. So what should you wear to brunch?

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.

12 Summer Outfit Ideas inspired by my wardrobe


Hi Everyone,

Happy Tuesday! Something different to start Summer in style. I went through my closet and identified what 2020 summer trends or must-haves I can pull off with what I had available without having to go shopping. I cheated a little bit since I got a little sponsorship from Lilophia to get some pieces - not because I don't have them in my closet but because they are either too big or have been on the blog a few times already. I will try my best to give you some details as we go. So let's get right into it: 12 Summer Outfit ideas inspired by my closet.

5 Summer Trends 2020 to add to my wardrobe and 5 to skip


Hi Everyone,

Happy Sunday! It's officially Summer :-). I am "Beach Body"ready but there won't be any beach activities until quarantining is over. However, I can see myself rocking my bathing suit (still looking for the perfect one: high waisted bottom + underwired bra) by the pool with the kids. Maybe I will feel confident enough to share some footage? Who knows? I  recently wrote about summer fashion, trends and must-haves in 2020 (here). As we welcome Summer, I think it'll be fun to share the trends I am looking forward to trying and those I don't really care for. So here's 5 summer trends I want to add to my wardrobe and 5 that I will skip:

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. If you lose sight of this, you’re never going to create a style that accentuates your best features and make you feel like this boss that you are.

3 Tips to Help Your Kids Stay Focused on School During the Quarantine

For most of us navigating the challenges of this pandemic, it can seem a bit like a play in three acts — only in this case, all the acts are happening at once.

Coping with Stress During the COVID-19 Pandemic


Hi everyone,

I mentioned it in a few blog posts that I have been overdoing it since the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe it's my way of coping with stress. Lately, it has been coming back at me as I am now feeling anxious, stressed and tired. Even my stomach is getting very upset. I don't really know why? I eat healthy, taking my vitamins, drinking my water like a camel. I had to stop exercising after my back injury but I am trying to start a new routine that I can handle. I lost an additional 3lbs. (did not plan for that - but I rather lose than gain). All my projects are moving along smoothly and some unexpectedly well however, I think I'm getting sick every time I step outside of the house. I did some research on how I can better cope with that stress that is eating me up. And while, I am still trying to figure things out for myself, I am sharing my findings with you.

6 Steps to Curating your Wardrobe Without Overspending





Hi everyone,

How was your weekend? I noticed that the current situation makes people want to shop more. Whether it is home décor or fashion, I feel like people use shopping as a way to deal with the anxiety of not knowing when everything will be under control and resume their regular activities. It is definitely an opportunity to make an assessment of your style and your wardrobe and make smart choices to improve your overall shopping experience. Shopping with a big-picture plan has its benefits: You buy less, you stop shopping in a panic. You save money by shopping in the off-season. Most importantly, by developing your own rhythm for when and how you shop, you’re reclaiming control. When’s the last time you felt in total control of your wardrobe, and not the other way around? here’s my six-step shopping strategy to minimize overspending:

4 Tips to remain productive while working at home


Hi everyone,


Almost 3 months since I have been working from home full time and I still manage to stay motivated. It's important for me to wake up in the morning and have a list of things to do on my nightstand that includes anything that I have to do for the office, the blog and my consultancy services. I am also multitasking since I'm also on social media (I believe I told you I was addicted to IG) and depending of what my Zoom meetings schedules look like, I am also homeschooling the children.
