• The Importance of Being Thankful

  • “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” ― Marcel Proust Thanksgiving has come and gone, too quickly if you ask me, and as we all eat our leftovers and start focusing on the busy holiday season ahead, lets remember one important detail: Be Thankful EVERY day, you might just become a better person and more successful. “[...]
  • Cafe Bar Pasta

  • I finally made my way to Cafe Bar Pasta for a tasting of their delicious menu offerings, in time to toast with them a "Happy One-Year Anniversary". We sat at the front, looking out onto the busy Dundas West street of... a random mix of people. (I love people watching, especially when I eat... feels very, Paris) I started with the Local Bufala Mozzarella salad, with baby arugula, heriloom[...]
  • September

  • “I want to say something so embarrassing about September that even the leaves start blushing and turning red.” ― Jarod Kintz, Well, it seems I am already shopping for halloween decor for the office, and planning my winter vacation, and then I stop... wait... where did September go? The whirlwind month came and passed so quickly, that today I am just going to sit and enjoy a Sunday and Septe[...]
  • It's Bedtime

  • What you do before bed could make you more successful I really like to get the most out of my day, try to squeeze in everything I can, wrap up all loose ends, and then tip off the night with some down time; this is definitely harder than it sounds. So, I am constantly attracted to those "Things Successful People Do Before Bed", type-of articles, and I have found few things helpful, that may be [...]
  • Extra-Canadian

  • Everyday I love our country. Not once a year on Canada Day, literally every day I am thankful for living here. I have had the pleasure to live abroad (temporarily) and love traveling as often as work allows, but there is nothing quite like the feeling of coming... home. I love the smell of Autumn, I love the first snowfall, I love the lakes and rolling mountains, I love the cameo's of wildl[...]
  • Work-Life Balance

  • If you saw the above, "Work-Life Balance", and you are sitting there thinking to yourself: what is that? Something needs to change. The world is a crazy and unpredictable place. Time goes faster and faster every single year, and as you get older (and wiser), it is most important to stop for a moment, breathe, enjoy, live, love and laugh, in order to really soak up the very best parts of life. [...]

  • CFDA X RiRi

  • While I sat here Googling images of the outfits from last night's CFDA awards... it is impossible to miss Rihanna. Last night, at The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, RiRi stole the show. Quite rightly, she was the winner of the coveted, "Fashion Icon" award, and that dress! I mean, lack of dress! Or whatever... she looked rockin'. People can say what they want, have their opinio[...]

  • Triumph: Shaping Women Since 1886

  • 1886... you hear that?! That is a long time! Needless-to-say, I was honoured when their team reached out to me for a fitting of their iconic Amourette collection. It was an easy, over-the-phone fitting, that allowed for me to learn exactly how to properly measure myself for a bra (and break my disillusionment that I was a size X versus a size ...x). Triumph recently discovered that 30% of w[...]
  • Hair Love

  • When you spend a chunk of your life working weekends in a hair salon, you can end up being pretty picky about the product you use in your hair. I certainly am. There are many reasons why I choose a product: smell, texture, and how my hair feels the following day. Here are some of my hair-must-haves, and recommendations for you to try this Spring/Summer! ColorProof I have finally found a s[...]
  • Who doesn't love socks?

  • I am a sock fiend. Really and truly. I have a two super organized sock drawers filled to the brim with my favourite dress socks, athletic socks, and tights. Two drawers because on my rushed mornings out the door, I can very easily pick the right drawer (one is for dress socks, one is for leisure or athletic) for the right pair of socks as I run out the door. I have always been a huge sock fan s[...]

  • ABA Toronto

  • It has been years since I have last attended the Allied Beauty Association Toronto show. Gone are the days where I sweat under the lights, praying under my breath some hair stylist i've committed to "modelling " for doesn't go scissor happy on my hair and chop it all off. This year, I was invited to attend the show by the amazing team at VENUS Beauty Supplies, and 2Social  joined in the fun wit[...]
