Summer is finally here! Summer is the season of outdoor activities, BBQ, ice-cream and cold lemonade. Today, I want to share with you just a few additional items that can be added to your existing outdoor space. I can’t wait to see you turn your outdoor space into the best place to hang this summer!
Summer is around the corner finally and I am super excited to share my tips with you for flawless summer skin with only 4 essential products. Don’t you agree that summer is the season to show off more skin and less makeup? As someone who has a super busy schedule, I was always looking for a skincare regime that did not require too many steps and also help my acne prone skin under control, especially in the summer. These 4 products have been my best friends for over 3 years. I seriously can’t live without them and I would love to share my secrets with you today.
If you are still looking for unique gifts for your mom or things to do this weekend for Mother’s Day, make sure to drop by Scarborough Town Centre and check out their FLOWER MKRT from May 11-14.
Yesterday, I had the privilege to attend their VIP opening with a few amazing bloggers from Toronto and we had so much fun. When I first arrived at the mall yesterday, I couldn’t help but admire all the decorations that were prepared by the staff and vendors the night before because everything looks amazing.
I love the fact this event is about promoting local business in Toronto. If you know me, you know I am all about supporting local business. Here, you will find everything that you will need to complete a perfect gift for your mom on Mother’s Day. Sometimes I wish my mom and I lived closer so I could take her out and enjoyed a mother & daughter’s date at this market. You should totally take your mom out and have some fun time this weekend at this event though. I also love the fact that most of these vendors build their business through social media and online stores. Most of them don’t have a storefront and pop-up events like this are such great opportunities for them to showcase their brand and their specialties.
I was very impressed at how talented some of these vendors were. They had beautiful products to offer from handmade jewelry to handmade soap and gorgeous bouquets. Pandora and NYX Cosmetics were also there with their new collections.
I think if my mom was here, she would totally love these beautiful mini succulents by @GREYLEAFCO. I had a short conversation with the two ladies who own this store and they were absolutely amazing. Check out their Instaram @GREYLEAFCO!
The highlight of the day had to be our calligraphy class from Jenna, the owner of @PROSEANDFAWNS. Thank God she was so patient with us because I was not good at calligraphy at all. I guess us bloggers are on our phones and laptops way too much! Some of the blogger ladies were so good at it tho, especially Rebeca from WISHBONE AND CLOVER. I think I just have shaky hands! Yes, blame it on my shaky hands! 🙂 But we had a lot of fun learning about it. Feels like we are back in elementary school again!
I forgot to mention that there were also live music, yummy food, a cotton candy machine from @FANCYPUF. AND You MUST check out the wall full of edible doughnuts! Such a brilliant idea! I took one home with me but still haven’t eaten it yet because it is just too pretty to eat. Have you ever had that problem?
If you have absolutely no time to shop for you mom (although you should make time for her), you can always come to this market and grab her one of these pretty bouquets or a teacup of flowers.
I had a lot of fun yesterday so I hope you will too this weekend. Thank you for having us Scarborough Town Centre and can’t wait to see all of these amazing vendors at their next pop-up shows!

Why do we need to give up certain things in our life in order to achieve success?
Let me tell you about my biggest fear in life! My biggest fear is waking up one day realizing that my life has not changed and I am at the exact same place as I was in the past. My biggest fear is going through life knowing that I have the ability to be great, to do more and I chose not to live up to my potentials. My biggest fear is not being able to tell the world one day that I have once succeeded in something. Because of these reasons, I want to share with you 10 of the valuable lessons I have learned on my way to find success.
How many of you have put down blogging as one of your new year’s goals but still looking for a WordPress theme that speaks to you and your Girlboss image?
I have just what you need today. Choosing the right WordPress theme for your blog is super important as it is the face of your brand and attracts your readers/followers to your blog. WordPress has a lot of FREE themes that are really nice but a lot of them don’t offer customizable options, which can make it hard for you to express your style and your brand. For a sophisticated girl boss like you, I know you are looking for something so much more.
Check out these 10 WordPress Theme Ideas that I have collected for a Girlboss like you!
It’s a few days away from Valentine’s Day and I have partnered up with la Vie en Rose and my good friend Alan Law who is an incredible makeup artist to share about this love story. Just to give you a heads up, this is not a regular love story. Boy didn’t meet girl. They didn’t fall in love. But it is a must-read love story that I hope will give you a new perspective on what we often define as ‘Love’. When la Vie en Rose asked me to be involved with their campaign for Valentine’s, I immediately thought of this person. Before I start telling you more, I want to give a huge shout out to la Vie en Rose and Alan Law for making this post way more beautiful than what I was visioning.
