W Punta de Mita, Mexico

Hello Darlings, As Charles Bowden once said, “summertime is always the best of what might be.” Where better to escape to for a birthday celebration from the bustle of Toronto than an oasis of jungle with a close friend. Over the years it has become my tradition to escape to a new destination for my birthday. For the past number of years it has been to numerous beautiful W properties all over the world. There’s something about a familiar feeling in an unfamiliar territory. This year, it was Viva la Mexico! This being my second time and Shayla’s first, we were…

Crystal Clear with Crizal

Hello Darlings, With Christmas just days away and first snow fall, the winter has arrived. While for some the sight of first snow is a much dreaded sight, I personally love it.

Now throw in the holidays into the mix and we’re losing sleep over what to wear and how to style our hair. Being a woman is an absolute gift that comes with its own set of challenges. If I know anything is that at this point in our lives we hope to have mastered the morning routine but getting glam…

Being a Woman Entrepreneur

Hello Darlings, Most of the conversations on the topic of being a woman entrepreneur or a successful businesswoman tackle the issue of how to overcome the challenges. In my opinion that is a very short sighted view! Being an entrepreneur comes with its own set of challenges that are unique to every individual; stating that because you’re a woman there are more challenges is simply unfair. In the years that I have graduated from university and set out to receive my first government grant to pursue a crazy dream, I have learned that being a woman in business has absolutely…
