Resolutions Set Us Up For Failure, Here’s Why

Hello Darlings,  Resolution (noun) – a firm decision to do or not to do something. January is here – also known as the month of resolutions – and at the strike of midnight on New Years Eve, we often decide to magically transform our lives in the upcoming year. Social media’s trending with “New Year, New Me” promises, gym membership sales increase and we make attempts to visit only the healthy isles of the grocery store. 2018 will be the year it is all going to come together we tell ourselves!

Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Mexico

Hello Darlings, Dozens of outfits found their way to my bed and favourite sandals scattered themselves all over the bedroom floor. Although it was about 1:30AM, I was just then pulling out my suitcase to pack for a 6AM Toronto to Cancun Interjet flight that day.

Should Women Have it All?

Hello Darlings,  Today – March 8th – commemorates the movement for  women’s rights and in the 21st century we’ve become the Wolf of the Wall Street. We graduate from the best universities, compete for the same internships that our future spouses may have and continue fighting to gain the top tier jobs within the corporate and political spheres. We do it all while staying fit and fabulous with the latest fashions, detoxes and fitness trends. The can’ts and don’ts of the 50s have turned into cans and wants of today. As a result of that drive we’re creating the world that is equal…

Managing Your Thoughts

Hello Darlings, In many situations you’ll hear people advice that it’s not the situation it is your state of mind that carves out the outcome. While I’ve always been the one to take that advice with a grain of salt, lately I’ve been questioning as to how true it may be. In many situation whether personal or professional we are defined by our outlook. Over time our mindset becomes habitual as does the process in which we resolve problems.
