Lately, I’ve accepted the fact that it’s okay to stick to a style and the comfort of my favorite wardrobe piece (that I feel good in) and for me, that’s …pants. I basically live in pants. I have a closet full of dresses and I do love them too, but wearing pants (at the office, in the park, in vacation, while running errands) it’s my favorite thing to do when it comes to my personal style. And my life has become easier since I’ve discovered Rekucci Collection this year. This brand embodies a modern spin on classic apparel to fit a woman’s on-the-go lifestyle. Continue reading
When I first wore this Zara mustard color mini dress on a date/night out in Las Vegas (with my husband) I thought I will feel a little under-dressed walking through this amazing, beautiful, chaotic, colorful city. However, many women stopped me and asked me about it. It was very flattering that I was able to wear it with such success, despite of the way I was before leaving the hotel room. But most importantly, I felt great wearing it and my husband complimented me all night long (he usually does this every day, but still…:) ) Continue reading
First time we booked Clarion Inn & Suites by chance. We wanted to plan a family trip to USA, but we didn’t want to go “too far” away from Montreal, yet we were craving some American “shopping and water action”. Lake George was clearly the winner since this beautiful, small town is the home of 2 Six Flags (water and outdoor) parks and is also famous for its Fashion Outlets. Continue reading
Our lips are a sign of good health and most likely one of the first features others may notice about our faces. Dry lips look cracked, sore, dull, chapped and those traits are the opposite of what everyone should aim for: pinkish, baby soft, naturally hydrated, plumped lips. And no, I am not referring to the hyaluronic-acid-plumped-by-surgeons lips (unless you were born with them). If the softness and hydration could be covered by treatments and many effective products, we only have the plumping desire to deal with it (wishing it will come from a small bottle!). Some are saying that…there is no such thing! But what if the “perfect” lip plumper exists? Continue reading
All fall long I knew what I wanted to wear at one of the end of the year parties: a gorgeous sequin dress, the ultimate in glamorous chic. With the perfect sparkly dress in mind, I started a true shopping journey. Needless to say that no dress charmed my attention (and believe me, I tried on over 25 gleaming dresses) until I found “THE” dress. The long sleeves- shimmering-dark brown-sequin Hale Bob dress was definitely the must have party piece I was looking for. Plus, this dress slipped into the “affordable party dress” category (a “big like” from any wallet). Continue reading
For years I kept on promising myself I will one day go on a sea cruise, but I gave up each time for two very simple reasons. Firstly – although I love the sea, I can’t swim (I actually have a serious fear of water because of a childhood swimming accident). Secondly – I am way too “agitated” and active to imagine that I could ever stay “locked” on a ship with thousands of other strangers. In the middle of the ocean! Surrounded by…water!!! Well, this was the year when my Beau ignored all of my fears and offered me a cruise to Bahamas as a birthday gift. Therefore, we boarded the Norwegian Sky cruise ship (NCL – Norwegian Cruise Line) from the port of Miami, Florida, USA. Continue reading
Three years ago I’ve met Carmen Popescu in Montreal, the city we both call “home”. The fact that we spoke the same language, but also her warm, pleasant personality, eased our conversation immediately. The first time I met Carmen we talked a lot about life and our dreams. Carmen’s vision was to become a reputable fashion designer and create and expand her own fashion brand. Today, Carmen Popescu, at only 26 years old, is one of the many talented Romanians living abroad who are breathing and nurturing their dreams came true. Her brand, NemräC Style, is already making waves in the Quebec’s fashion world and people are already falling in love with it. NemräC Style means ready to wear, unique collections and fit to measure clothing pieces because Carmen Popescu believes that anyone, no matter the shape, height, or taste should be able to wear a NemräC piece! Before one of Carmen’s fashion shows, I headed backstage to catch up with the young designer, who never ceases to impress me with her feminine, yet unique pieces with just the right amount of unexpected details. Backstage, Carmen Popescu was remarkably laid-back, answered all my questions with the most amazing smile on her face and with no sign of pre-show jitters.
