Top 5 Ocassions to Wear an Evening Gown featuring ever-pretty.com


Hi everyone,

I hope you guys are having a good week so far. A while ago, I got two evening gowns from Ever Pretty Garment Inc. This online store has a large variety of affordable dresses for weddings and other occasions that require formal evening attire. Growing up, every single girl has once thought about wearing a very pretty dress like the ones we read about in fairytales, to go to the ball meeting our Prince Charming. Although I didn't meet my "Charming Prince" wearing a fancy dress, I never miss an occasion to wear a gown. And since a ball isn’t the only occasion that would require these types of dresses, here are 5 occasions to wear an evening dress.

How to find the perfect shorts / denim shorts

Hi Everyone,


Happy Weekend! One of the most common questions I get around Spring and Summer is about whether or not women of a certain age (late 30s, 40s+) can wear shorts. Whether you think you are too short, you don't like your legs, or just don't know how to style them, a pair of shorts is a great addition to your Spring/Summer/vacay wardrobe. So if you are feeling hesitant about whether or not you should invest in those summer wardrobe staples, here are a few tips for finding the perfect age-appropriate pair of shorts that won't make you feel like your teenage daughter/niece.

Mother's Day Recap


Hi everyone,

Happy Monday! So as a Haitian mom, I get to celebrate Mother's Day twice a year: the second week of May and the last Sunday of May. This year, the 1st one was shadowed by my birthday but was still a double celebration. However, I wanted to do something special for the second one for many reasons. The main reason: I am Haitian so needless to say it was going to be special. This time, I kept the focus on myself. How narcissistic :-)?

The FASHION Rule of 1 Part II

 Hi everyone,

I'm sorry I disappeared on you one more time. I have been pretty busy and did not get the chance to take any cute pictures to share. I am stocking up and hopefully, I won't have to spend weeks (or a full month) without releasing a new blog post. With that said, something special for today. I had a couple of old clothes sizes 8-10-12 (before my weight loss journey and healthy lifestyle) altered and I will be featuring some of them over the blog, starting with this one. I believe that this dress was seen on the blog for the first time on Valentine's Day 2014 or 2015 (I don't recall exactly and I am too lazy to go check 😊). So here we are at least 6 years later 😊. I am still making a few more alterations to that dress but I didn't want to delay my photoshoot session any longer. Anyway, I hope you are doing well and that you missed me the same way I missed you all.  Now, for today, I want to go back to the rule of 1 in Fashion.

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday or Happy Palm Sunday if you do celebrate Christian Easter tradition. In any case, Sunday is a great day to refuel your soul and to be grateful for each and every one of your blessings. So on this lovely Sunday, remember to take a deep breath and relax. Enjoy your family, your friends and indulge yourself in a nice cup of coffee (or tea if you are like me).

3 Ways To Personalize Your Outfits


Hi Everyone,

When you think about it, a lot of outfits are exactly the same. If you're wearing certain clothes, there's always a chance someone else will be wearing them too.

What can you do to make your outfit a bit more unique? Here are a few options that are worth considering:

5 reasons why too much ego will ruin your life

Hi everyone,

Happy Thursday! I think we all agree that we shall see more of Caroline on the blog. She recently released this article about how ego can negatively impact our lives and prevent us from becoming our true self. She never stops to amaze me. She went from a caterpillar to a gorgeous butterfly right before my eyes and sometimes I tend to forget that she's now a woman. In case you didn't know yet, Caroline is my husband's baby sister and my baby. I don't know why but I often involuntarily call her Aby (my first born's nickname) and vice-versa. I guess in my subconscious I see her as my daughter. Anyway, we are not here for that. Check out her well-written blogpost that I re-titled "5 reasons why too much ego will ruin your life".

How to Transition your Outfit from Day to Night

Hi everyone,

Happy Tuesday! I'm back :-). As you can see today I have some more tips to share with you. As I was looking for inspiration I was browsing through my previous posts hoping to get inspired. And it worked. OMG, I can't believe that I haven't talked about this particular topic yet as I am the queen of versatile in that sense not because I want (I have enough clothes in my wardrobe to want to change for night out) but because it is more convenient given of the distance between my home and the city. Style is all about fun, even when you’re at work. If your wardrobe has a few versatile pieces, you can mix, match, and rotate different looks to make it easier to transition your corporate work outfit into a chic night look. So here's a few tips that you use if you have similar challenges or if you are more on the minimalist side of the things.

I feel Spring




Hi everyone,

Happy Tuesday! It has been raining for the past 3 days and although I am glad that I can continue wearing my sweaters and boots it's pretty unusual for it to rain in March. The weather is usually at its best during the dry / cool spell from November through to March. Heavy rains descend between April and June, followed by a hurricane season from August to October which has slightly lighter rains. However, we are already getting tropical waves in early March.I wonder how it is going to be by June /August.

6 Steps to Self-Love & Body Positivity


Hi everyone,

Happy Thursday! As a Style Coach™, I believe that true beauty cannot be defined by your body shape nor measured by your dress size.

It's all about positive body-image, value yourself more and appreciate your uniqueness. Today I'm sharing 6 things that you can do to improve your body positivity image. If you turn these exercises into new habits, then your feelings of self-love and acceptance will begin to rise to a beautiful new level.

5 benefits of taking time for yourself


Happy Weekend everyone,

I hope you are doing great. I just finished a life coaching session with a client and I went back to my thinking of self-care. I recently witnessed how poor self-care can take a mental toll on you. So as I was taking note for my next session with this client, it crossed my mind to debate about the benefits of taking time for yourself. Research shows that people who are comfortable with time alone experience increased happiness and better stress management. Enjoying time alone is linked to better life satisfaction and lower rates of depression. So here's 5 benefits of taking time for yourself.

How to Choose Your Wardrobe Essentials (basics)

Hi everyone,

Happy Thursday! I have been debating with myself which topic I should elaborate in today's post : I went from Black History Month to How to wear that oversize sweater vest trend to talking about self-confidence and self-belief. As Style coach, I do life coaching so I will eventually bring up the Self-belief topic, but at a later time. Of course, it means that I am working on something.... In the meantime, I want to go back and talk about Wardrobe Essentials one more time. But instead of providing you with a list of "Must-Have", let's look into the rationale that must come into play when you are picking up those essentials.

I apologize for not being able to make it yesterday. I felt a little overwhelmed with some personal issues topped with sleepless nights due to the fact that one of the twins caught a terrible flu.

Valentine's Day : D-Day -3 - Quick LaMoumous Update.-

 Hi everyone,

Happy Thursday! It's almost Valentine's day. I am an eternal romantic and I am looking forward to it even though I have no plans. I am currently so busy working on many projects: I'm changing the design of the blog again. Yes! again... I want to make it a little more appealing and also separate the blog, my hobby from my Style Coaching business. I am also revisiting all my marketing / communication templates and designs. I'm hoping to go live by March 1st if not sooner so I can launch my Youtube Channel. So there you have it: all my secrets are out now :-). You can support me by subscription to my channel La Moumous. It is still under construction but I would be pleased to have you as part of my community for the big launch. Stay tuned for the launching date.

Valentine's Day: D-Day -6


Good morning everyone,
 
Happy Tuesday! Valentine's Day is a time to celebrate romance and love. It is also an opportunity to celebrate Friendship. We share gifts and we take the time to tell one another how much we love, appreciate and are happy to have them in our life. However, we should express gratitude to our loved ones everyday (or as much as possible) just like we should celebrate life on a daily basis. Of course, we should not miss the opportunity to do a little extra such as put on a nice dress, going out on a date or just having drinks with the girls, put on a fancy, sexy fragrance, eat chocolates, give a rose to that special someone...

Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday! I am pleased to collaborate with this online wholesale and retailer feelingirldress.com. With Valentine's day right around the corner, we are all looking for some affordable options to look sexy for your romantic evening. I think we should ditch the sweatpants at least just for one day and make an effort to create a more feminine look for the occasion. Even if you are spending the holiday at home. For today’s post I will be sharing my favorite clothing items that I think are Valentine's Day approved.

Valentine's Day with LaMoumous @Complexe Promenade


Hi everyone,

Happy weekend! It's officially Valentine's Day season at LaMoumous. Since I didn't do anything special for Christmas, I was looking for an opportunity to make up for it. And I said to myself: let us wait for Valentine's Day. Little did I know that it was going to be of that significance and I also had no idea what I was going to do. I had a few ideas here and there but nothing specific. Long story short, today's post is launching our Valentine's Day Special week entitled: "Valentine's Day at Complexe Promenade with LaMoumous". In the coming week, we will be celebrating love and friendship (new friendship - long time friendship - lost friendship found) all of this around fashion and style, great perfumes, flowers, chocolates, gift baskets and more. I hope you will stick around for the ride.

6 tips to dress sexy at any age


 
Hi everyone,

Happy Thursday! I hope you are doing well. I was motivated to schedule all my posts on time but I am still struggling to get inspiration. So here I am releasing Tuesday's post on Thursday. Anyway, let's get right into it. I blogged about that topic before but I thought it would be a good idea to share a simpler version of the original post: How to dress sexy (not trashy) at any age.  Before we get started, remember that the quality of the clothing pieces are key. Also, take the time to identify your attributes and then make the most of them: if you are an 8 or a A use a belt to accentuate your waist, if you have long and nice legs, wear a mini skirt or some shorts but remember the rule of 1 etc. In the meantime, here's 6 tips to dress sexy at any age:

3 Tips to eliminate toxic people from your life




Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday! Today I want to talk about toxic people. "Just like any toxic thing—like food or poison—toxic people are extremely dangerous," Tara Mackey, author of Cured by Nature and founder of The Organic Life. As long as I remember I was gifted with the ability to get rid of toxic people in my environment as soon as they get close to me. Interacting with toxic people who constantly cut you down or manipulate you to their own advantage can take a toll on your own mental health. And yet, it can be difficult to distance yourself from them."Toxic people can try to cling on—sometimes for years! They can make you feel guilty and because of that, are not always easy to remove from your life,” says Mackey. To help you detox your relationships once and for all, here are some of my tips for getting rid of harmful personalities.

Sustainable Fashion - What it is & My personal opinion


Hi everyone,

Today, I wanted to discuss a little more about sustainable fashion as it is the way to improve your life, become more aware of the environment, help with savings and probably learn how to make the best of your wardrobe or simply help you create a wardrobe that takes all of the above into account while reflecting your style personality and taste for fashion. As per Wikipedia, sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion concerns more than just addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion.

Happy Tuesday - Catch Up with me



Hi everyone,

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are doing well. I am doing great and a little tired. My weekend was quite busy between one of my nieces birthday and another one's first communion. The kids were really happy and I had so much fun in the kitchen baking a few of my exotics desserts. Nieces and nephews were happy and I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to spoil them as I don't have time to do that often.

Hi everyone,

Happy Saturday! I spent hours trying to come up with a topic to write about but nothing came out of my tired brain.

Tip Tips To Keep Your Lips Beautiful And Healthy





Hi everyone,

We will all probably be able to admit that through 2020 we have probably paid less attention to self-care, especially towards the end during winter. Despite moisturising, you will have probably found that your skin and lips have been far more irritated than normal, one of the biggest reasons why will be because we need to wear face masks to protect ourselves and others while out. Some of us even need to wear them throughout the day to complete our work, so, it’s not really a surprise that now we are in 2021, our lips are overdue a little bit of care.

10 things we need to let go of to be happy


Hi everyone,

I decided not to post on Tuesday January 12, as a memorial to the terrible earthquake that happened back in 2010. Eleven years ago, I witnessed an horror movie turned into reality right before my eyes: More than 300,000 people were killed, several hundred thousand were injured and nearly 1.5 million were left homeless when the magnitude 7 earthquake hit Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010. I opted to spend the day remembering the deaths and expressing my gratitude to the almighty God for sparing me and my family from this catastrophe. I ended my day with a group of youth who invited me to give a speech on "Fashion & Handicap" as a way of celebrating life and a reminder that we should all make the best of today.  Talking to them about the purpose of our journey on earth and how short and unpredictable that journey fueled the inspiration behind today's post. Here's 10 things that we need to let go of to be happy.

10 Fashion Trends for 2021



 Hi everyone,

While it’s been a quiet year for the fashion world, this season has unveiled seriously bold and stylish designs. Large and in-charge blazers, bold blue bags, and sleek face masks dominated Fashion Weeks over the last few weeks. And while we are all excited to see how fast fashion will interpret those trends,we should be mindful of which one of these trends we will incorporate in our wardrobe based on our lifestyle, bodyshape, skin complexion and personal style. So instead of making comments about the upcoming fashion trends, I will provide some quick tips that hopefully can help you make some smart decisions when the time will come to shop for some of those trends.

My New Year 2021 Resolutions & 5 Tips for Keeping Your Resolutions This Year


Hi everyone,

The start of a new year is the perfect time to turn a new page, which is probably why so many people make New Year's resolutions. The new year often feels like a fresh start and a great opportunity to change bad habits and establish new routines that will help you grow psychologically, emotionally, socially, physically, or intellectually. Of course, resolutions are much easier to make than to keep, and before we know it, many of us have abandoned our resolve and settled back into our old patterns.

Happy New Year 2021


Happy New Year everyone,

Every year, we celebrate the New Year with a lot of enthusiasm, mainly because the beginning of a year is synonymous with renewed energy and optimism.

Some of the challenges may continue, and we only need to put up a brave front and go on with our lives knowing that although it may take some time, things will get better.
