Spoiler: Revealing before/after photos of my skin at the end of this post!
A few years ago, because of my pregnancy, sun exposure, and age, my skin started to show dark spots, little scars and freckles. I have been trying to hide these with makeup and bought all kind of primers, foundations and concealers. However, I am not wearing makeup every day and I really wanted to improve my skin condition to be able to feel confident with zero makeup.
I have already talked about Parfaire Medical on the blog, a Medi-Spa located in Pasadena that provides a complete range of non-surgical treatments for the face and body such as skin tightening, lifts, IPL Photo-Facial, acne treatment…I tried their SilkPeel Facial treatment a few months ago and fully trust their expertise. I was very curious about their Clear-Skin treatment which uses Lumecca, a new technology that uses laser-like intense pulsed light (IPL) and energy to selectively target and treat a variety of skin conditions.
I have partnered with Parfaire to introduce you to this treatment and give my honest review about it.
New year = new decoration, right? I have been wanting to redecorate my bedroom for a while (which should not be very hard because it’s so minimalist and white right now), and craving natural materials mixed with dark colors (grey and black), and plants. My main source of inspiration is CB2 (even if I can’t shop everything there…YET) and I have been coveting the following items for my new bedroom. I am currently thinking of getting a few as my Christmas treat from me to myself! What are your thoughts?
Who doesn’t stress out when it comes to keep your family meals interesting? It’s a big challenge for me. I am a pretty good cook but a very limited one…with only 10 recipes TOP to my repertoire! As a working mother, as much as I would love to experience new recipes I just don’t have time to browse the internet or my cook books, then go to the supermarket to buy every single ingredient. This is so frustrating because we end up always eating the same meals!
This week, I partnered with PLATED to try their tasty and functional meal kit delivery service.
I am not going to lie: the holiday season is one of my favorites because as a blogger I receive so many gifts and goodies that I get to discover! I was recently spoiled by BlueMercury and SpaceNK (amongst others) with a great selection of skincare, makeup & hair products. It took me almost a month to try them all and to list my favorites. I am sharing them with you today, hoping it will be a great source of inspiration for your Christmas and holiday gifts.

When it comes to fashion we are so used to buying what’s being imposed on us that we forget the real luxury is to be able to choose exactly what WE want. I have partnered with Shoes of Prey, an awesome company that offers the possibility to entirely personalize your shoes (heel height, materials, color, finish…) and delivers your custom-made model to your door in two weeks. Oh, and for the same price as most regular shoe retailers, should I mention.

Whether it’s a plaid, tartan or gingham print, checks are one of the hottest trends of the Fall 2017. It all started with the check blazer, that we have spotted on so many street-stylers during the fashion weeks this Fall. Understandably, because it’s the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe into Fall, and it looks just as good for the office or styled with jeans. Then came the check pants, suits, coats, skirts, jackets…in as many designs, colors and patterns as you can hope for!
Unfortunately, the trend is so popular that most items have sold out immediately (like models from Zara, Anine Bing, Isabel Marant or Tibi). However, Mango has a GREAT selection of affordable, super trendy check items, and most importantly still has most sizes in stock! Hurry up if you want to get your hands on them!
Like most girls, owning a Chanel bag is a dream that I currently can’t afford, and I am usually not very comfortable with buying pre-owned luxury goods on the web… however I recently discovered and partnered with Trendlee, a premier destination for pre-owned luxury handbags online. Trendlee democratizes luxury by sourcing and acquiring designer handbags, checking their authenticity and making them available online at high discounts compared to retail prices. And cherry on top, they even offer special financing (no payments, and no interest on all purchases over $199 if paid in full in six months).
What is IFCHIC?
I discovered IFCHIC in January, when I was looking for a Janessa Leone hat for my trip to Tulum.
IFCHIC is an online fashion site, with a curated selection of contemporary, edgy designer brands, such as Tibi, Iro, Carven, M.i.h. Jeans…
When it comes to swimwear, I am more of a one piece swimsuit gal. I love its classy look and the fact that I can wear it after the beach like a bodysuit, with denim shorts, and feel dressed. But my dilemma is that I never find the right design for a reasonable price.
