Look of the day: Watermelon Handbag







I'm finally back home!!! I truly can't believe it's been a month since the last day of school and time has been flying by! I feel like I haven't been productive yet I've been an intern in my field for a month now and I've caught up with some family time and also my dear boyfriend! I'm hoping to get more work for some side money and possibly make some handbags to sale. I was super happy to take some pictures for my blog and showcase some of my work in a real outfit! This handbag is one of my best ones so far, I'm happy to have chosen a youthful design. Everything was hand made by me! If you're interested in my work and would like to get a personalized design just contact me, I will start a waiting list!

Summer Fabulous!






Looking fresh and sexy is not something easy to pull off during summer but my sister has an impeccable sense of style. She has a good eye when it comes to choosing key piece for her wardrobe and sometimes I wish my style could look this polished. Black and white will never go out of style and having key pieces in these colours is essential. I love the use of the crop top because it doesn't look inappropriate; and I also love the shoes!!! Strappy sandals are very trendy and I'm sure will still be on for next year. A great combination of pieces in a monochromatic palette, perfect for this season!

Jealous Body Scrub





A couple of weeks ago I was reached out by the Jealous Body Scrub team to give their scrub a try and I got really excited to test a new Canadian Body Scrub! It's been a few weeks since I started to use the Jealous body scrub and so far I'm truly satisfied with the results. I was a bit skeptical that the coffee smell would throw me off because I'm not a coffee drinker but it actually doesn't bother me. I mostly use it on my body because it's slightly oily compared to other scrubs I've used. 

I like that it's very soothing and gently enough that you can use it as many times as you wish per week! This scrub is all natural and uses high quality, ingredients such as, premium Robusta coffee grounds, organic cold-pressed coconut oil. The mix of these natural ingredients helps reduce the visibility of stretch marks, cellulite and acne spots.  It also hydrates, exfoliates and gets rid of dead skin, leaving your body with a smooth and rejuvenated skin.  It's truly perfect for the summer!!! 

I don't want to sound like I'm bragging about my skin but I don't have any significant stretch marks; so I didn't really notice a difference. I've been mainly using the Jealous body scrub for the exfoliating factor and that it's very gentle on my skin. If you would like to try it just click the link down below!!!

5 things that change in your Mid Twenties

I will soon turn 25, and now that I look back at when I turned 20 I've noticed that many things have changed. Mainly my perspective on some aspects of life have changed and I'm starting to realize that I'm a young adult. Part of me would love to stay in the early twenties phase but I guess it's part of life to grow! Here are a couple of things that I believe mid twenties' young adults can relate to. 

1. Family Matters




I feel that the older you get the more caring and closer you become to your parents. As a young adult I have bigger responsibilities and I understand much more the stress they go through to maintain a household. I care much more about building my career and give back to them once I have a stable position. 

2. Quality v.s Quantity 




When I was in high school, I wanted to be popular and have plenty of friends but nowadays I cherish my small circle of friends. Along the years I've lost friends because we change and some have moved away. I rather have a few that truly know me and care about me than have many that only want to party. 

3. Big Money 



In my early twenties I felt rich with 1000$ in my bank account... now it takes much more to feel wealthy... financial needs are bigger and having a good paying job is a priority. Paying rent, buying groceries, having a car and maintain a young adult lifestyle is not easy. 

4. Relationships


Looking back at the type of guys I use to go for, I just shake my head and tell myself "what was I thinking?!?!" I did care about going for what I believed to be a "good guy" but I wasn't really picky about their values or about their habits...As I got older I became more selective and now I believe to have found my better half :) 

5. Alone time


You actually enjoy some alone time! Unwinding at home, watching TV, drinking a good cup of Java or tea, become your Friday night routines. Partying and being hungover don't look very attractive anymore...


They are plenty of things that change in your life once you start approaching the mid twenties and all you can do is simply enjoy this phase. A time in life when you're maturing yet and aging well!
