I’m loving: Rolled Jeans!

One of the reasons why I’m loving the rolled jeans look is that you can create that look with any denim…distressed, boyfriend, skinny…you name it!

Another fab reason is to show off your new pair of sexy stilettos or even a cute pair of flats.

The cherry on top: If you have jeans that are a-tad too long, forget about hemming them and just start rolling (super saver tip! πŸ˜‰).

Need some inspiration? Here’s some of my fave “rolled jeans” looks:

Foodie Love: Cocoa 70!

If you are ever in the downtown Montreal-Quebec area, a great “foodie” place to check out is Cacao 70. This resto is definitely one of my go-to’s for satisfying my sweet cravings (which is ALL the time…LOL).

Cocoa 70 is a breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, dessert, and chocolate bar with two locations at 2087 Ste. Catherine West or 1310 Ste. Catherine East, Montreal, Quebec.

I’m so thankful to my Rey for introducing me to this hot spot.

His Mighty Love!

20140413-125148.jpg
I am persuaded that NOTHING can tear us from the love of God. His love for us is so great that not even death, life, angels, principalities, powers, things present, things to come, height, depth nor any other creature can separate us from His love.

Don’t you know that you are LOVED just the way you are?

Happy Sunday!

Trending: Raincoats!

20140409-083329.jpg
A raincoat or slicker is a must in everyone’s closet (especially this month where it calls for showersβ˜”οΈon most days). It’s THE perfect item for April showers.

How so? Well…
1- It’s water-resistant or waterproof so it protects the body from rain.
2- It’s normally made of Gore-Tex or Tyvek and coated nylons which are breathable fabrics.
3- It comes in so many different colors, shapes and sizes, you’ll have lots of options to choose from.

I usually stick to neutral colors but that’s only because I love to add a pop of color via accessories like an umbrella or wellies.

Here are some of my faves…

Think Thursday: Jon Acuff

20140403-080817.jpg
There may be times when we compare our situation to others but one important factor to remember is that we don’t know what the other person has gone through to get to where they are. Their blessings are for them and your blessings are for you. Don’t cheat yourself from receiving what’s faithfully yours.

Keep this in mind…”Your journey is not my journey and my journey is not yours”.

Happy Thursday!

The Body Pledge!

Lord knows there were MANY times where I struggled with my body image. My legs are too thick. My arms are too wobbly. When did I get this little muffin top? What’s up with these stretch marks? Why do my legs “jello” when I walk? Arghh cellulite!…Yes I’m keeping it all the way real.

Well I’m slowly learning to love my body one body part at a time. As hard as that may be, I realize that God created me perfectly in His image and He loves me for me. So why don’t I feel the same way? Why are we our own worst critics?

Of course there is always room for improvement. Best practices are to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle and include exercise in your daily activities. This will definitely help achieve your best YOU! Just know that to see results, it takes time & dedication. Be patient with yourself and know you will get there.

You can start by taking this body pledge which can be a part of the healing process. If you’re ready, take the first step with me in saying the following:

20140320-082508.jpg
Don’t let society establish what you should or should not look like. Be happy with who you are and start loving what you see in the mirror today, one body part at a time.
