This is the time of the year when we are all busy making money. Oops, how blunt was that. We all need some dough though, that’s for sure. I’m in a place in my life now where I find my work situation the most harmonious I’ve ever had it. I started my English-teaching business Susa English two years ago, and now my schedule is nicely full with clients that make my life sweeter. I adore the language of Shakespeare. I’m the fondest American in heart. Spreading English language as well as American culture all day long is fun play for me.

When you are your own boss, you get to set the dress code. At work, I stay true to my urban chic style with a hint of sexy. I prefer showing legs rather than cleavage. I strive for unique accessories that give the class some visuals. Often times my groups like to comment my sartorial choices. That makes my heat sing.

I work long days, and long into the night. My key is in trying to get lost in my clients’ stories and needs. I forget the time for a while. I dive into the moment. The best thank you is when my student says they didn’t realize the time go by. Every client is unique, and during class time I’m there just for them.

Glitzy Halloween Coming Up

Glitzy Halloween Coming Up

At this time of the year I definitely need some color. The foliage inspires me to throw on purples and greens. This army style jumpsuit is a good contrast to girlier accessories and hues. I chew on Pumpkin spice sugar free gum and sip hot beverages. My newest thing? Just drinking plain hot water. I find it nice that I can chug down as much as I desire of it. And the more I drink, the better it is for my metabolism.

Glitzy Halloween Coming Up

I have an invitation to a Halloween party. I’m excited to go. I’ll come up with a costume that’s chic and a bit sexy. Maybe a combination of black and pink. Bunny ears and tail? I’m not a big fan of Halloween. But I’ll take a mild, soft core version of it. Plus, any invitation to party is always awesome.

Glitzy Halloween Coming Up

Staying in the pumpkin colors… I’ve decided to load on veggies that are high in beta-carotene. I’ll be going to Miami in December, and last year when over there, I noticed mild bronzing on my skin – the girl that never tans! Prior to the trip, I had gone crazy eating carrots, and peanut butter with them. It’s due to the latter that I ditched the habit. Nevertheless, there are other veggies besides carrots that can help you get a healthy glow. The foods I’ll be munching on are sweet potatoes, spinach and tomatoes. I’ll try and buy a pumpkin, too. Let’s see what I could make with it.

Sexy Legs in Leather

Sexy Legs in Leather

This is the time of the year when I start wearing more pants. All summer, I pretty much live in skirts – mini ones, needless to add. Leather is always the material to go when you want to get ‘them boyz’ attention, or just feel sexy for you. That’s a good enough of a reason already. Boosting your sentiments about yourself definitely go thru feeling hot for me. You are the star of your own reality TV show – every day. Don’t look elsewhere, live your life, right there where you are, as the most precious one on earth. Because it is.

Sexy Legs in Leather

Once we truly become self-sufficient in self-love, there’s nothing that can stop us. I read a certain number of fashion blogs for inspiration. I browse Instagram – I’ve been there now for about a month under susuparischic – and I tweet with other fashionistas. Nevertheless, I came to realize that some blogs made me jealous or dissatisfied with my life. The aimed boosting effect ‘let’s go see what others are doing to live a glamorous and fulfilled life, and pick up ideas on the go’ didn’t happen. So, I took action and cut back. Instead, I spent more time watching my fave TV shows, out walking or reading my subscribed fashion mag. Find out if anything is pulling you down, and prune it out.

These pics show you where I live. Quebec City is my home. Lots of exciting things happen everyday around town. I enjoy just slipping my heels on and going out for some fresh air and life inspiration. That’s what I’ll do right now…

California Revisited

California Revisited

California is eternal summer, right? Well, the dulcet temps definitely are lingering on here in Eastern Canada. I’ll gladly take in every ray of sweet sunlight I can. Living in shorts – I found these at Target – and my sparkled tee – hunted down at my fave Canadian store Limite. As the top says “life is your glamour runway”. Making every moment of it count.

California Revisited

How can you make each moment of your life count? It starts by being present in what you are doing. You can train your mind to de-clutter. You can learn how to concentrate on the essential and leave the rest aside. This all starts with tuning more into who you are, and who you wish to be. You can start by pulling out a notebook and jotting down “what makes you You”.

California Revisited

I know I’m a person who needs to be enthusiastic. I have to feel like I’m working towards something. So, I try to fix little goals. In my work I hope to inspire students to learn more English in a class that is tailored especially for them. In my blogging I wish to get invitations to local fashion events, and to meet other fashionistas. In my jogging, stairclimbing and zumba endeavors I aim for a slim, happy body. These are my life’s building blocks – what about you?

Transitioning to Black

Transitioning to Black

I’m trying to get used to the idea of fall. I’ve never been an autumn person. Summer seems so much more tempting. But there’s nothing we can do. The seasons must turn. So, what could make this time of the year sweeter?

Transitioning to Black

Hot drinks at coffee shops appear tastier. New color palette opens up again to you. Darker colors and layering can feel good after a break. Leggings, stay ups and patterned tights come back into your fashion choices. Nail polish can get a harvest-y hue to it – or you can go a different route, contrasting somber tones with a peachy, summery lacquer.

Transitioning to Black

A lot has to do with your attitude. How do you decide to spend this fall? Negatively hanging onto bygone sunny, heat waved days, or looking forward onto new opportunities to evolve. Change pokes us hard every time, but when we are able to rise up to the occasion, greater quality of life follows.

Transitioning to Black

I bought a new Ivana Trump coat for fall. It’ll be nice to sport a black coat after many beige years. We also made plans to go to New York at Thanksgiving. I will keep on looking forward.

Wanna Be a Style Leader?

Ice Cream Kiss

As much as I love the latest trends, at the end of the day, I prefer being me. Karl Lagerfeld sets the vogue tone, yet his personal style never shifts -  and we all admire him for that. For his guts to stay strong and say “I’m worth a lot, yet my value is not measured in the trendiness of the clothes I wear”.

Ice Cream Kiss

Finding what suits you takes time. And sometimes it’s easier just going along the mainstream flow. Rocking that pair of skinnies everyone, starting with Taylor Swift, trusts to make them feel the coolest chick in town. But once you break free, really detached and out there, then you’ll start to develop your own style signature. That’s when you become a style leader – as opposed to a follower. Would you like to be one?

Style leaders

*stay atop of trends yet mindfully approve only the ones going in line with the concept they’re developing

*foster their own style by asking: what makes me look my best? In what do I  feel the greatest? What outfits get the most praise/attention from my entourage?

*rejoice over others’ successes and draw positive lessons from them – that works for her body type, now how would that translate into my world?

*dare to wear white post Labor Day or to post pastel frocks on their blog in the middle of winter – that’s true character, and true character always ends up getting noticed.

Ice Cream Kiss

So being recognized as a fashionista starts with knowing who you are, and then trusting that instinct to a beautiful, confident end result. Tara Stiles has developed the “make your own rules” diet. I’m launching the “I know the glitz I need” fashion. You’re in?! Comments…

My hubs, and a ruthless fashion critique… I love his honesty to pieces. And when he loves something, he says it, too.
