Thanksgiving Holy Chic

Thanksgiving Holy Chic

Thanksgiving is around the corner. I like this holiday. It’s so American. Thanking for making it to the other side of the Atlantic. Leaving the old behind and making something new of your life. I love my country – the U.S. I hold the American spirit and history close to my heart. This is the land of opportunity. Doors are open for you to make of yourself whatever you desire. I strive on doing my best everyday. In my case, it is surely paying off. Two and some years in business, and I’m fully employed. Doing what I love – spending my days discussing in English, encouraging people and being there “just for them”.

Thanksgiving Holy Chic

This season is full of delicious impulses to senses. Smells and visual effects. Fashion picks up these cues. Fall and winter trends throw us with black in many forms. At the moment, I find it fun dressing in black from head to toe.

In this outfit I wanted to combine the chicness of faux leather – pants and jacket, with the “Holy Chic” spiced up black sweater. There are the elements that cherish – chic and a dash of shock. Color accents, the red collar peeking out and my purple gloves also make the ensemble more feisty.

When you want to feel happier in your life, think of all the things that you now have and you are grateful for. It is super simple yet when you really get into it, when you’re really able to do so, it will open a whole new world, right where you are. That extra free hour from working will feel super sweet. The old route to the office will appear so unique, you are there to see it today. Jillian Michaels has said that most people don’t show up in their own lives. I want to be present in mine. Nothing is perfect, but perfect is boring. Real life has all the flavors – we go thru lots of stuff and that’s when we shout out “Holy Chic – we rock, after all!”

Glamour Night

Glamour Night

As of late, a lot of people have told me they don’t like November. Last night I took a stroll in the nightly city – and I loved every moment of it. Seems like now I’ve truly accepted the presence of fall. Hot drinks taste better and candle light soothes even more. Mellowing down feels like the thing to do.

I’m actually out of candles so a trip to Bath and Body Works is on my to-do list. I love caramel-y, chocolate-y and spiced apple scents. Some delish body lotion will find its way into my basket, too. In creams I go for fruity, lightly spiced  smells. They complement my vanilla deodorant and Guerlain’s Insolence or Lolita Lempicka perfumes. Looking at the big picture in scent world, too, is a guarantee for a stylish result.

Glamour Night

I’ve been jogging as usual. I just bundle up more. I sport my Miami bought, Granny Smith apple green colored sweatpants and hot pink sneakers. I listen to Enrique Iglesias’ greatest hits. I take in the late evening urban vibes. My jogs happen quite late since I get done with work late. Once the last client has left, I get changed and head out.

We had two Halloween parties to attend. I made sure I danced both nights away. At the first one I found myself pretty much able to pilot the music – so of course I adored the selection of latino and dance. The party and friend get-togethers will be continuing for some weeks to come. I find that to be the perfect fall time booster.

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?

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?

Ice Cream Kiss

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.

Sexy Legs for Fall

Sexy Legs for Fall

Fall always falls upon us, like it or not. There is nothing better to boost your spirits than feeling slim and sexy in your body. I’ve found a product that can point you to the glamorous, long legged avenue direction – IDC’s CELLelite.

Sexy Legs for Fall

CELLelite is a serum that addresses two intertwined issues, skin aging and cellulite. The former is an inherent part of the development of cellulite, and because cellulite accelerates skin aging, IDC has created the first highly concentrated care addressing these two issues simultaneously.

Sexy Legs for Fall

The serum works the best when you first exfoliate the targeted area. I used the mechanic method, the scrubbing glove, to prepare my legs for the care.

Sexy Legs for Fall

The gel smells very refreshing, very minty or rosemary like, I’d say.

Sexy Legs for Fall

I worked the product into the skin thru circular movements. The gel is absorbed rapidly so if you use it as advised, morning and night, your beauty routine will only be lengthened by 30 seconds per leg. That’s nothing, right! As a bonus, you get this special sensation that I’ve never experienced with any other product. The gel applied area will get cooler, kind of like if someone had smeared minty liquid chewing gum on you.

Sexy Legs for Fall

After several weeks of using CELLelite I find my legs and buttocks firmer, and the skin softer. Blood circulation in those areas seems to have improved as well. I did try the gel on my stomach, too, but due to the cooling effect, I preferred just using it for the lower body.

I will definitely keep using this product. It adds nicely to my daily beauty routine. Fall is the perfect moment to take new beauty resolutions. Star now and you’ll see how your self-assurance will be boosted. You can find CELLelite online or at pharmacies in Canada and France.
