I.N.C Hudsons Bay

After what seems to have been the longest winters of all time, we’ve finally packed away our puffy parkas, clunky winter boots and thick scarves to make way for the light, airy spring and summer pieces. I was recently asked by the Hudson’s Bay company to check out I.N.C International Concepts, one of the fashion lines that they sell in their department stores and I didn’t agree right away because instead of me choosing which pieces I wanted to try, they offered to send me a box of clothing chosen by them. Now, if you know me well you’ll understand that this is […] Continue reading →

Junk Food comes out with the best designs with original and quirky touches each and every year and I’m always sure to purchase a few pieces from their collaboration with Gap. Keith Haring & Jean-Michel Basquiat are two artists Gap and Junk Food have always had an affinity for. They were both born out of the streets and with naive styles they were able to tell very complex narratives with the perspective that art is to be shared and enjoyed by everyone. Keith Haring has such a signature line style from which they have chosen iconic elements while bringing more […] Continue reading →

Until 3 years ago, I had never ran a mile. I loathed running with all my being and never dreamt that one day I would run a race what to speak of a 1/2 marathon. After giving birth to my son I came across a training program to help you run a 5K. The first couple of weeks were torturous but I pushed through and reached my 5K goal. Then I wanted more, so I trained for a 10K and ran my very first race. It was challenging but I did it and felt oh so proud of myself. And […] Continue reading →

I learned something in 2014. Something that completely changed my life and the way I look at things. I learned that wishes do come true if you work hard enough at them and do everything you can to make them happen. Want to be a yoga instructor? Go for it. Want to create your own business? Do it. Want to run the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon? Sign up for that race and just do it! Today, my Prince Charmings and sweet Princesses dropped me off at the airport to take on something that’s always been on my bucket list. Presented […] Continue reading →
