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…

ALT Court, Montreal

Hello Darlings, Nothing gets our pulse racing and heart beating like cheering on our favourite team. Now an entire country coming together to support our athletes at the Olympics, that’s national pride. With Rio 2016 taking place it left me reminiscing of my trip to Montreal back in July. Over the weekend of July 8th, I was invited to celebrate one of my favourite sports — tennis. With Rogers Cup set to take place the following week, National Bank was celebrating 10 years of supporting  tennis in Canada. A worthy occasion for an epic celebration! That is not to say that I do not love other…

What To Pack For Hawaii

Hello Darling, Despite the number of times that I pack and unpack in a month, I am not sure if I will ever master the true art of it. Asking a woman to decide what she’s going to wear days ahead is as unlikely as asking her to decide on one pair of shoes when shopping.

Is Sexy More Important Than Beautiful?

Hello Darlings,  As I browsed the new arrivals section at the Holt Renfrew I came across a beautiful dress that stood out within a rack of “cool and hip” clothing. The dress just didn’t seem to belong in the midst of T by Alexander Wang tees and Rag & Bone pullovers. From the delicate silk sleeves that highlighted shoulders and a simple linen A-line form of the dress; in my eyes it was perfection! The dress was designed by Paul & Joe Sister which is a diffusion line of the eponymous French label. I’ve always adored the quirky and cheeky designs of the…

Swim Week 2015, South Beach

Hello Darlings, Whenever a woman checks her bags at the gate, she always says a little prayer hoping that her beloved wardrobe and most importantly shoes arrive at the final destination. This is especially the case when travelling for fashion week because being stranded without a wardrobe would be a crises more so than any other time. As Miya – beauty editor at TheYouthSociety.com –  and I said our farewell to the luggage, it was supposed to have been just a quick 3 hour flight to the sunny Miami. Unfortunately our trip started off on an adventurous side of Miami airport being…
