@Aeroplan Turns 30 and Celebrates with a HUGE GIVEAWAY!

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Hi Girls! It has been a busy week on the blog after making a big announcement, so I figured I’d keep the momentum going. If you stay with me until the end, you’re going to be excited about an AWESOME giveaway today. Oh yes! It’s BIG.

So, let’s get right to it… Friday is a great day to kick off an exciting giveaway! You, my loyal readers, know that I have been a loyal member of the Aeroplan program, accumulating Aeroplan Miles as I have spent dollars (which I have redeemed for airfare, hotel, car rental, merchandise, and more), for almost 20 YEARS! I believe in this brand so strongly, so when I reached out to them and begged (yah I guess I begged) them to be their Brand Ambassador over a year ago, after over a year of discussions, Aeroplan said YES! ;)

Wordless Wednesday: #HabsFallonBet

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

I have waited all week for this WORDLESS WEDNESDAY. Today we’re off the fence! Today we’re celebrating my love of four things: My Montreal Canadiens (AKA Habs), Jimmy FallonTwitter and a good bet.

In case you don’t follow hockey, it was the Habs Vs. the New York Rangers in the NHL playoffs last week. And in case you don’t know much about Canada, WE LOVE OUR HOCKEY! Well, my fave Jimmy Fallon took to Twitter to confirm a bet offered up by our Habs.

Remembering The Queen of Inspiration Maya Angelou

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Hello Ladies.  Today’s post originally started off very differently. It started as such:

c2mtl

“I’m home sweet home! Touched down yesterday afternoon after a romantic week in Europe for my husband’s 40th birthday. I had a quiet evening with all my boys and haven’t stopped hugging and kissing them. Absence truly makes a mama’s heart grow fonder. ;)

Woke up at 3am with extreme jet lag and headed out early to my weekly Global TV segment. I just arrived at the brilliant C2MTL Conference and I’m officially back in action.

Feels good to be back, baby!”

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.

39 Is Gonna Be Fine

Monday, April 7th, 2014

s.o.s.-7

So, my husband calls me URGENTLY on Friday and tells me that I must call Visa immediately, as it appears my credit card has been frauded. Visa was unable to reach me at home and they needed to verify suspicious transactions. He gives me the number to call ASAP and tells me to ask for Nelly.

I hang up the phone while en route home from carpool and call the number. I ask for Nelly as told, and proceed to ask, “What happened to my credit card?”

Then, a chuckle on the other line, “Is this the birthday girl?!” she laughs.

Easter Break is just around the corner, and now is the perfect time to look into some last-minute getaways if you have been saving your money, and accumulating Aeroplan miles.

It’s no secret I have been a LOYAL member of the Aeroplan program, accumulating Aeroplan Miles as I have spent dollars, for almost 20 YEARS! It’s also no secret that I was honored to become a Brand Ambassador for Aeroplan in 2013 after having traveled to New York, Florida, Nassau, New Orleans, rented cars, stayed in hotels, bought electronics and MUCH MORE, all because of Aeroplan.

Alpha Wives, Beta Husbands

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Are you the breadwinner in your relationship? Are you making more money than your husband? Are you frustrated and resentful, or are you proud and grateful? Could you be with a man if you were the one working and bringing home the bacon, and he was the one organizing playdates and park excursions? I have a few coaching clients currently in this position… they’re called Alpha Wives, or Breadwinning Wives. And they exist in large numbers today.

Let’s look at the facts. Women are holding some of the highest-ranking positions in society today, and our success has been increasing each year. I discuss this topic in my book.  Angela Merkel, #1 on the 100 Most Powerful Women’s list 2013, is the Chancellor of Germany (Forbes). Other women in the top 25 on this list are Sheryl Sandberg (COO Facebook), Dilma Rousseff (President of Brazil), Indra Nooyi (President PepsiCo), Virginia Rometty (CEO IBM), Ursula Burns (CEO Xerox), and Anne Sweeney (President Disney & ABC Television). Wow. Women are running Corporate America! No more info required. So, with this increased power and higher earning potential, it is not uncommon today for the woman to be out-earning the man. In fact, it’s becoming a trend. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in recent years, 33.5% of wives earned more than their husbands.
