6 Smartphone Apps For Summer Fun!

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Hoping everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Speaking of Mother’s Day, I re-posted a little inspiration on Instagram that is a real “truth bomb,” and something my own mother, a women’s therapist for over 25 years has always taught me. I know this as truth. These words are real, and are ones to follow on a daily basis.

Thankfully, summertime is around the corner. In Montreal, we’ve been seeing more sunshine, warmer temperatures, and it’s putting our city in a festive spirit. To gear up for one of my favorite seasons, I wanted to share some fun, must-have, summer apps for your smartphones and tablets. I love sharing ways to simplify our lives, and these are just fantastic.

New Research: The Secrets To Living Longer

Monday, May 5th, 2014

So I’ve been thinking a lot about my health lately as I approach 40 and notice huge changes in my body. I was the girl you didn’t like– the girl who ate whatever she wanted and nothing would stick. Well, those days are now over and I have officially landed on planet earth to join the rest of the world. It’s been sobering, to say the least. Now, no matter WHAT I eat, healthy food included, it ALL sticks. But I’m not going down without a fight, yo.

Yesterday, I decided to spring for the $35 bucks for a cookbook I was too cheap to do before. I’ve been dying to get Miss “Conscious Uncoupling” herself, Gwyneth Paltrow‘s latest foodie book, It’s All Good. I’ve heard great things about it, and I am really trying to be more mindful than ever before when it comes to my health. All jokes aside, I have always been a healthy eater. My mom raised me on organic food and whole grains, and was doing so before people even talked about it.

Wordless Wednesday: RIP L’Wren Scott

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

LWren-Credit-Carter-Smith

The devastating news of the death of L’Wren Scott has sent waves of shock and compassion through the worlds of fashion in New York and London. The loss of such a figure of grace, fun, and multidimensional talents seems incomprehensible. Always poised, always publicly reticent and privately considerate of her clients and friends, L’Wren was a self-made designer who was proud of building an independent business, which she kept scrupulously separate from her status as the girlfriend of Sir Mick Jagger. “I am doing this with my own money,” she said, on launching her own collection in 2006. “My life’s always been like that. It’s how I was raised.” Vogue Magazine

I saw a quote on Tory Johnson’s Instagram which so eloquently described this tragic situation. It also made me wonder what we can do as a society to address and prevent suicide. How can we help a loved one who is hurting to heal before it’s too late?

Thank you Tory, for the smartest words that can be said during a situation such as this.
