Know your body type. I know this should seem obvious, but I still find myself staring wistfully at store windows, wondering if I can squeeze myself into a dress or top that clearly wasn't designed with me in mind. I hear women complain about their bodies all the time, but there's no such thing as a bad body type. There are, however, poor fashion choices that don't highlight your best assets.
I love spring fashion and find shopping online so convenient. The time I save can be spent outdoors, or enjoying time with my friends or dining out. To find out the latest tips and tricks about how you can get the most out of your online shopping experience I spoke with Camille Kowalewski from eBay Canada.
Recently, I was lucky enough to speak with Linda Ly owner and founder of Onyx Aesthetics Studio. Linda shared with me the hottest trends for nails this spring and also the top tips for shellac manicures and pedicures. I love shellac polish. I find it lasts much longer than regular nail polish and I don't get as many chips.
A new season means a fresh start, and what better way to make things fresh and organized in your home than cleaning out your closet. I bet you'll be surprised by how much you can accumulate in a year. The rule is, if you haven't worn something in a year, you probably won't wear it again anytime soon - get rid of it and make room for a few new items. Donate it to your favourite local clothing drive or sell online if it's worth a pretty penny!
Finding the right fit when you have a bigger chest is not fun. So many women have commented to me, "You are so lucky to have a chest." Not when it comes to finding clothes that fit. But as the fashion industry continues to expand its vision on body shapes, now too, there are styles to accommodate bigger chested women.
With the chilly weather outside, this time of year layering options are really popular for yoga. Choose pieces that you can remove as you warm up once you're on the mat. Pairing a strappy bra with a tank and covering up with a long sleeve tee allows you to peel off the layers as you begin moving through your poses and start to sweat.
A huge part of staying young-looking is dressing yourself to highlight all of your best assets. Whether you choose classic pieces or trendy ones, just make sure that you are having fun and not taking yourself too seriously. Above all, never ever wear something just because you feel that you "have to."
For some, New Year's resolutions are about living a healthier lifestyle. For others, this may mean paying off debt, finding the hypothetical work-life balance, soaking up some new skills like a new language, or actually learning how to use chopsticks. But why not enter the Year of the Monkey with a different outlook on fashion?
There is nothing I love more than a complete makeover. It is wonderful when a person can venture out of their comfort zone and try something new. Recently, I was fortunate enough to be a part of a fall makeover for a busy, hard-working mom. I also spoke with several style experts on makeup, haircuts, hair colour and the hottest fashion looks for fall.
