Talk Tuesday: I Am Mine! 

Be yours first before you give of yourself to anyone else. It’s not about being selfish, conceited or vain. It’s about loving yourself just the way you are, flaws and all, unconditionally…that way, you can give more of yourself to others. Repeat after me: 

I belong to me before I belong to anyone else. -StarInMoi

I am mine. Before I am ever anyone else’s. 

Happy Tuesday! ❤️xo

Balmain x H&M Collection!

I’m baaaaaack! That’s right, I took a 2-month hiatus only to come back with more exciting ‘star-like’ things and I just can’t wait to share with you all of the things that are near and dear to my heart. What better way to start than with…wait for it…FASHION! 

As most “magasineuses” know, the highly anticipated designer collaboration Balmain x H&M is launching TODAY (8am local time to be exact). I mean who wouldn’t want to get their hands on an Olivier Rousteing-designed item. See for yourself…         

My fellow Canadians can shop this designer collection at Rockland Centre and St. Catherine St. West at Peel St. in Montreal, Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, Bloor St. West, Toronto Eaton Centre in Toronto and The Pacific Centre in Vancouver. The lucky first 420 people in line will receive a coloured wristband to shop in groups of 30 for 10 mins only so plan your shopping list beforehand (side note: this collection fits slightly smaller). Afterwards, everything will be up for grabs to everyone else.   

Will you be shopping Balmain x H&M? What’s your must-have item from this designer collection? Here’s mine! Love love love!   (Images via

Happy Thursday! Happy shopping!


Talk Tuesday: Take A Risk!

Life is too short to live with “what ifs” “maybe one day” or “next time I will”. If it’s something you’re very passionate about, something you’re constantly thinking of and really want to do then it’s worth taking the risk. You never know unless you try. Once you do and succeed, great! If not, try and try again. Take a risk! 

Happy Tuesday! ❤️xo

God Gives Grace To The Humble! 

Humility is not about thinking less of yourself because you are not less than (insert positive word here!)…it’s really about thinking of yourself less. When you humble yourself, you are addressing your intrinsic self-worth and are making room for progress which means growth. The more modest your behaviour, attitude or spirit, the more God will lift you up. God gives grace to the humble. 

Happy Sunday! ❤️xo

Think Thursday: I Can! 

If you want it, say it and say it like you mean it. There is power in words…so why not claim all of the great things for your life. You are…! You can…! You will…! 

What will you preach to yourself today?!

His Love Gives Life!

Jesus laid down His life for us so that we may live a fulfilling one. Let’s embrace His limitless love and live life to the fullest. Live your best life because His Love Gives Life!

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”

‭‭John‬ ‭10:10-11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Think Thursday: Who Can Change Your Life?!

Stop looking for someone to change the person you are. If you feel like you need a change in your life (whether spiritual, physical or whatever), only YOU can make it happen…not your neighbour, family, husband or friend. So take a good look in the mirror and remind yourself that YOU got this! No one else but YOU! No matter what it is or what it entails, YOU got this!

 His Love Is Better Than Life!


Life can be busy at times but even amidst the “busyness”, it’s important to take a moment to be still and reflect on God’s love (which is better than life!) so…I want to take this moment to praise God for everything He has done for me this far, everything He is currently doing in my life and for His future plans for me (which are far greater than my own). For all of that alone, He is worthy of all praise so my lips will glorify Him every moment I get. His love is better than life!

What are you thankful for today?

Lead Me…!

There are times when you may feel tired, overworked and/or overwhelmed but know that God will always be there to lead you through that exhaustive time in your life. Also, make sure to take some time for yourself. It’s ok to put YOU first. It’s not about being selfish, it’s about giving yourself that tender love and care that you deserve on a daily basis. You do your work and God will do His work in YOU. Let Him lead you when your heart is overwhelmed. Let Him lead you to the higher place.

Think Thursday: Do What You Love!

Here is another key to happiness: “Do what you love!”. It’s as simple as that. When you love what you do, your happiness cup fills up more quickly and the more you love it, the more full your cup will be (and there is nothing wrong with an overflow). Do what you love and do more of it!
