How To Dye Black Hair Lighter Without Bleach

I’ve had jet black hair all my life and a few years I started coloring it black (huge mistake). At the time I didn’t know you couldn’t get rid of black hair dye so after the delivery of my baby all I could think about was lightening my hair color. I went to a local hair salon to do a bleach test on small locks of my black hair to see if that was an option… the hair that was tested fell off. So after searching on the Internet I found Pravana Artificial Hair Color Extractor and I decided to give it a try.

Corporate Stays Montreal: A review of my home away from home!

I’ve mentioned a number of times that where you stay can make or break a vacation (or at least staying at the right place can greatly improve a holiday!). This is even more true for us in our hometown of Montreal, Canada which we visit at least twice a year.  In the past we would usually stay with family but since we now have a baby we preferred having our own space.

For the last 2 summers we’ve planned our holidays around the Montreal Jazz Festival (the largest in the world). It’s hosted in the Quartier International of downtown.  When looking for a place to stay we made a list of what we wanted in a place; walking distance to the jazz festival, shopping and metro system, a separate bedroom for when Julian needed to take his naps, a full kitchen, washer and dryer to do laundry as we were going to be there for 2-3 weeks, a balcony and an amazing view. Essentially we needed a full apartment.

A friend recommended we check out CorporateStays, an executive housing solution he had used for some of his clients when visiting Montreal… we did, and it was the best decision we made!

Sneakers with Dress! Royal Blue!!

Who doesn’t love lace?! It’s timeless and delightfully feminine. I love the sexy, vintage appeal that lace material garners, whether it’s for a simple summer dress, that special prom dress or the wedding dress you’ve always dreamed of (or had!)

Vertical Stripes Style - SHEIN!

I have been wearing vertical stripes a lot this summer, you can see it here and here. What I love about stripes is they always make you look taller and slimmer. Stripes are a flattering and timeless style that belong in every closet.

Amoudi Bay: A Must See While In Oia!

So one of the must do/see if you’re in Oia is visit Amoudi Bay, it’s a great little fishing harbor located at the bottom of the cliffs just a few minutes outside Oia.

Santorini, Greece: La Maltese Hotel Oia Review

Truly a dream destination!

As I mentioned earlier finding the right hotel as a family with a baby (and our first trip!) it was difficult to find the right place to stay… we wanted more space that’s available from renting an apartment but wanted to keep all the facilities/services of a hotel. Although there is a lot of choice in Oia we found the best of both worlds at La Maltese Oia, a brand new hotel right in the center of the city.

We booked the 2-bedroom Deluxe suite with private jacuzzi. The room was beautiful with a huge terrace overlooking the water and caldera and complete with a private hot tub! (which we got to take advantage of on a chilly night!!)

Athens: Flisvos Marina!

Flisvos marina located south of Athens is one of the places you must visit if you’re in Athens. We went there with a friend and her 3 children, getting there couldn’t have been easier. We hopped on the train in central Athens and 30 minutes later we arrived right at the marina.

Greece: Best Hotel in Athens - Met34 Hotel!

I was really looking forward to and very nervous about our first trip as a family (with our 4 month old son)… how was the plane gonna be? What about the airports? Was our destination safe? I hope we picked the right hotel!? And a million other things running through my mind!

The Met34 in Athens really came through and didn't disappoint at all! Becoming one of my favourite hotels ever!

Santorini: Denim Jacket over Dress!

Since becoming a mom I’ve started looking for outfits that are more practical and comfortable yet still remaining stylish. This is even more important when we travel, high heels simply won’t work when I’m walking around all day holding my baby!
So here’s one of the outfits I wore in Santorini, it was really windy and chilly that day!

Owlet Baby Monitor: A Game Changer!

As a new mom, I feel I've gone through a million different products and websites looking for some of the best items to get because there are so many options out there! This is my review of what I believe is one of the greatest baby monitors on the market! 

When our son Julian was born in December, he was a perfect little angel for the first few weeks – textbook baby! We thought we were the luckiest people on earth, until the colic kicked in ☺.

Layering Neutrals!

So we got some really cold weather over the last week, my poor baby seemed like he was always cold and kept shivering sometimes I felt like I was putting his whole closet on him (He loves being really warm)!! I’m not sure how he'll survive Canadian winters !
(better start shopping for super warm winter clothes from now!)

What I love about winter is layering, so for today’ outfit I’m layering neutrals! Pairing a simple white shirt with a double faced natural cardigan and gray jeans. What’s great is how well the cardigan pulls the look together by matching the grey from the jeans and neutral with the white shirt flawlessly.

Plaid Flare!

Plaid is the quintessential winter pattern, this grey mid-lenth skirt with knee high boots are a perfect combination! Matched with this gorgeous stripped blouse from Lafayette148NewYork for an effortlessly elegant look. 

(Try to avoid wearing a white shirt with plaid to avoid the school girl look!)

Coral, Lace and Earth Tones!

So I’m still not fitting into my old jeans (but I’ll get there!) so in the meantime I’m into skirts and dresses!

Hunter Originals!

The iconic rain boots that never go out of style. The Hunter Original Tour and Original Tall are easy to match with numerous outfits which makes them no brainers when the rainy seasons come. I got them to get around and keep my heels/other shoes in my bag/car when I’m going out for a special occasion.
