    Go Braless for Breast Health

    Hello folks and I am up and training to do the 60 miles for the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk to fight breast cancer. As you know that my life had been jolted by Cancer when I lost my husband to cancer a few years back. I know the feeling and so I do not want anyone else to go through this ordeal. I don’t want anyone else to lose their loved ones to cancer.  So I have decided to play an active role in making the 60 miles in 3 days walk for the Susan G. Komen. My road to this 3-day walk has been a successful one…

    How to wear Crocs To Every Occasion!

    Have you ever wondered how awesome it would be to have shoes that have more than one benefit in one shoe? Shoes that are versatile, comfy, and cute? Well I have exciting news for you! Crocs are in now and booming like never before! This past Saturday I went on a picnic with a friend to catch up. I stepped out into my garage and laid eyes on my bright white Crocs. I walked over and gently placed my feet into them. The best feeling it was! It felt like I wasn’t even wearing shoes that is how comfy they were! During the picnic, we laid on the grass chit…

    The Misconceptions and Reality of Botox!

    If you were to ask most people about the term “Botox” or “Botox injection”, most would probably associate it with some kind of expensive facial treatment that makes the older celebrities and movie stars look like balloons lol. Well, that may have been true at some point in the past, but the modern reality of the Botox injection and the entire beauty industry has changed drastically. It’s not just about making celebrities camera worthy and photogenic anymore. It’s about so much more!   Most beauty treatments which would have been considered too expensive or too difficult to perform a few years ago are now accessible by many individuals all over…

    Instagram is planning to Change its “Like” Feature – Everything that Influencers need to know

    Since a lot of you might already know that Instagram is removing its “like” feature from the posts soon. Subsequently, Instagram developers have already started testing a beta version in Canada and the United States, which is affecting the sponsorship for some full-time social media influencers like me.   Once the change will be made a permanent feature, viewers won’t be able to see the number of “likes” on a post. This can become an issue for the full-time influencers on social media, since, it is the number of likes and the number of engagements that the sponsors look at when investing in a social media influencer.   Understandably there is…

    Celebrating International T-shirt Day with Chico’s!

    Did you know it is International T-shirt day? Wohooo!! Today is a day to celebrate the most versatile piece of clothing. Think about it! You can’t exactly wear a fluffy winter coat to the beach on a hot summer day or a bikini in the coldest part of the world. I mean you could, but it is not recommended lol. T-shirts can be worn on or under about any piece of clothing and can even be worn by itself!! I find myself wearing T-shirts a lot but the color T-shirt that I wear most would have to be white. I mean do you blame me? It is the easiest color…

Bentley’s Lofts is one of them too, a luxurious bi-level loft suites in the heart of downtown Stratford. Downstairs is the restaurant area and upstairs is where the loft is located. There is a king size bed downstairs and another single bed upstairs with a bathroom and closet. It is very spacious…

    Susan G Komen 3-Day Walk Fundraiser Party Recap

    This past Sunday, my 3-Day Walk partner Alison Hill and I held our Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Fundraiser Party at our beloved Area45 Fitness in Troy, Michigan.

It has been more than 4 months after I personally signed up to walk 60 miles in 3 days to raise money for breast cancer research. First I recruited Alison as my team member. Then I reached my personal…
