Outfit :: Lace Heels #LeShoeStyle

Le Chateau Shoe Ambassador Feb Lace Heels

Earlier this month we celebrated the day of love! Valentine’s day that is. Though Kyle and I didn’t hit the town and decided to stay in to celebrate, I was still in the mood for something romantic, lacey, and sexy! For my February Le Chateau Shoe Ambassador pick, I found the perfect pair of shoes to fit the bill. These delicate lace and leather-like beauties were not only the perfect addition to my Valentine’s Day outfit but also a great add to my closet in general!

Beauty :: At Home Spa Day with Moroccanoil

Moroccan Oil Spa Day Review

Between work, planning for our wedding, and keeping up with the blog, not going to lie, it’s been pretty hectic! I’m so thankful that my friends at Langton and Moroccanoil sent a fabulous care package to me for a day of relaxation. I decided to de-stress at home and enjoyed a DIY spa day in. I’ve been a big fan of Moroccanoil hair products for quite some time (read about some of top Moroccanoil hair products picks), but I’ve yet to try their body line.

What a perfect way to unwind during a brutally cold winter day and recuperate inside and out!

Lifestyle :: Cedar Juice, 3 Day Juice Cleanse

Cedar 3 day juice cleanse Review

TGIF! Hoping to start your weekend off with some healthy motivation. In January, I wrote a post on 4 simple rules to instill a daily healthy lifestyle. One of my rules included trying something new and therefore decided to do just that, try something new! When I was first introduced to CEDAR Juice, I was intrigued with their Juice Cleanse programs but was also intimidated by the thought of not eating for three days. I have a history of indigestion and after the holidays I was also feeling very fatigued and bloated.

Let’s face it, we are exposed to all sorts pesticides, mercury, colorants, and preservatives on a day to day basis. I really felt that I needed to give my body a break. By drinking only cold pressed juice, our digestive system gets the break it deserves, along with a whole host of enzymes and nutrients it needs to recuperate. The immediate benefits of a juice cleanse is more energy, better complexion, less bloating, clearer mind, and sounder sleep. I will also tell you, though I had no intentions of losing weight, I did see some differences.

Food & Drink :: Chinese New Year Rice Cake Pasta

Lobalws - Chinese New Year Rice Cake Pasta Recipe

Thursday marks the start of Chinese New Year! This year, we celebrate the Year of the Sheep. I grew up celebrating Chinese New Year with many traditions, but I hate to admit since I moved out of my parent’s place and coupled with the fact that Kyle is not Chinese, I don’t practice a lot of those traditions anymore. I remember visiting friends and relatives door to door, in our brand new red outfits, gifts in hand to wish them many good fortunes and in return, receiving red pockets.

As we begin to think about starting a family of our own in the not so distant future, I’d really like to introduce some of those Chinese traditions back into our home. The beauty of being a interracial relationship is that we get the privilege of learning and sharing each other’s cultures. Living in a multicultural city such as Toronto also gives us many opportunities to observe other traditions. That’s one of the reasons why I love this city so much! Read the full article →
