In the spirit of full disclosure, I’ve never been to Paris, but I know a few people that have and there is never a bad review. Today I’ve compiled a list of activities Paris travelers swear by and also some things that look super fun and interesting. Dinner, Cruise and a Show Spend an evening on the town in Paris. This experience includes pick-up and drop-off at your central Paris hotel plus a half-bottle of champagne per person. Start the evening off with dinner at the Eiffel Tower, proceed to

As the managing editor for Bride & Groom Magazine, part of my role is to seek out, filter, curate and review beautiful content. Almost every part of the wedding industry is a gorgeous encounter from the rings, to the dress, flowers, stationary, cake and my personal favourite, the event decor. In my wedding industry travels, I came across an amazing event decor company, Revelry Event Designers, a visionary team that creates the look and feel of events ranging from the Academy Award Governor’s Ball and Grammy’s to the Disney Hall and

If you’re in the mood to travel somewhere other than your everyday island destination, but still want to enjoy white sandy beaches (five to be exact), Peter Island in the British Virgin Islands, is one option you won’t soon forget. Peter Island spans across 1,800 acres and is the largest private island in the British Virgin Islands. Peter Island comes with the full package: villas, spa’s, activities, wining, dining and five beaches! BEACHES Deadman’s Beach is largest of the five beaches with a mile-long crescent of palm trees, white sand

Fast forward to 2017, with my new goals of adding more travel to my lifestyle and therein lies the swimsuit issue. I haven’t had to buy a swimsuit in years. The swimsuit I have now no longer fits and is a gift I got for my birthday, about 5 years ago, so I don’t really have much, if

Since I have allowed myself to feel my pain, fears and doubts, I can’t believe it’s been about a week and I’m still processing a lot of my emotions. In the past, within a day, I’m over it, but if you’re following from last weeks Morning Café, we know that I’m human and getting over certain things so quickly is not truth. In today’s video, I talk about holding down emotions and clinging to whatever makes us feel better in the moment, otherwise known as our training wheels. But eventually,

I wasn’t always a yogalista. My journey with yoga didn’t start off so pleasantly at all. I hated it the first time around, some 8 years ago and I really hated it 2 years later. But as I became determined to explore regular activity that worked for me and didn’t bore me, I fell back to yoga one last time and immersed myself even deeper by learning more about it; like that fact that there are several minority, plus sized women who also practice yoga. This third time around, I

We’re about five days away from celebrating some of the most wonderful women in the world, otherwise known as our mom’s! This year, I took to social media to get ideas and suggestions for some outstanding and out-of-the-box Mother’s Day gifts and the response was quite unexpected. Here I was thinking I was going to get recommendations on gifts that could be gift wrapped and tucked away behind my back before I yell ‘surprise!’ and hand

Last week I learned about letting go. If you’re following me on Facebook, you may have read about my ‘meltdown Monday’. I blamed my meltdown on the stranger, but upon reflection, I blame it on my tendency to hold back and suppress my feelings. I lean towards staying strong and having faith and keeping doubt and fear out of my mind, when all the while, I’ve been needing to let go. The truth is, I have been extremely fearful and doubtful and unsure; combined with a lack of confidence and

If you’re like me, you tend to eat when you’re bored or excited, and nothing excites me more than getting to the end of the work-week in one piece. If you ask me, that’s cause for a celebration and a celebration is cause for indulging in your junk food favourites. Junk food Friday is an occasion I instated years ago during one of my health kicks and even though I learned that engaging in a night of salt and sweets could undo an entire week of exercise, the occasion stuck. In

Every now and then I come across some gorgeous patterns and textures and see the many different ways in which they can be used. Chinoiserie by TSTUDIO is just one pattern, but with any pattern, it’s easy to see a variety of uses for it in your own brand and graphic design; arts, crafts or decor. For this blog, I’m sharing examples specifically for graphic design, but there’s a chance you may walk away with some design ideas of your own. 1. Clipping Masks One thing I love to do
