Luxury swimwear designer Katharine Demarchelier held a private showing for her latest collection, White Label and I was thrilled to see it! Her stuff is flirty, unique, handmade, and even reversable! There are plenty of pieces that are must haves! The beautiful floral fabrics are designed by Katharine  herself. I love the unique cuts, playful ruffles, strings, and the extra touches she adds to it. Katharine took my measurements and will be making me custom bikinis, I’m so thrilled!

With the volunteers who did an amazing job selling Heart-O-Grams!

The Have-A-Heart for CANFAR campaign has started, where 2,000 schools across Canada are selling Heart-O-Grams to raise money and spread awareness on HIV/AIDS.

Any New Years Eve traditions or superstitions? I always write a list of goals every year & divide them into 2 month periods so I can keep track & do some “course correcting”.

Weekend in Heaven + the Winter Blues

Posted on:

It’s incredible how a few days in the sun can totally change how you feel about Winter. Before my surprise trip to Isla Mujeres, Cancun, I was dreading the winter. “Noooo, I’m not ready!!” But a few days of heat, the beautiful beach and a great tan changed it. Now I’m actually looking forward to the snow, the Holidays & hopefully doing some fun winter activities (Ski resort etc,.) Hopefully I’ll make a few more weekend trips to Cancun in the next 2 months. I wanted to share these personal photos of my trip! The pictures put me in a great mood, I love looking at them!

After a long year of hard work, we all deserve a little bit of a vacation! Try to find a way to get yourself out somewhere warm! Although Seasonal Depression (S.A.D) is a difficult condition for some, many of us, unfortunately experience the “Winter Blue’s” or some symptoms of the real deal. Symptoms of the Winter Blue’s are very common & something many people (especially up north) go through. It’s when you feel depressive symptoms like low energy, wanting to sleep more, fatigue, cravings for lots of carbs, becoming less social so missing out on social activities to stay inside, and all around just feeling grumpy. The reason for this is very simple – you NEED sunlight! Depending on your geographical location, many places are dark and cloudy during the winter. We all need sunlight, serotonin, Vitamin D, etc,. When late-fall/winter kicks in, we lose a lot of our sunlight & during this time we have more dark days, than sun filled ones. It’s totally normal to feel a bit down but know that – it’s natural and fixable. I’ve definitely felt tired & less social during the winter months and figured out my solution – I take Vitamin D, change the lightbulbs throughout my home into brighter & stronger ones and exercise more! If exercising is too boring for you – a great solution – try the Wii Fit! Oprah.com has come good ideas also!! (Note: If you feel like your symptoms are severe & extreme bouts of depression are occurring, you should talk to your doctor immediately!)

View from the plane!

An amazing ferry ride that takes you from Cancun to Isla Mujeres. 15 minutes across. Stunning!

Golf Carts & Mopeds are the main modes of transportation.. I was pumped! lol

Beautiful place to eat. Zuma.

Super quiet, calm & relaxing. Sun was going down.

There was a main strip where everyone wined & dined! So many Americans & Canadians!

Lol.. They were really cool performers. Ray & I ran up like little kids playing with their props!

This photo is so surreal to me. Super gorg.

Ziplining across the water!

Great restaurant!

Of course I order something basic lol

I loved this place!

Lollipops in hand! Ready to rock lol

Ray & his close friend own a Club/Restaurant called “La Luna”. We attended the Grand Re-opening!
Lots of tourists staying on the resorts stop by!

Boat riding!

We went to a place called Mayan Temple! Cliff’s that go around the border of the ocean.
Unbelievable view of the water & while your walking the waves hit your feet!

This was my view of the water as I laid there.

Of course I’m drinking Pepsi..

I LOVE my Matthew Williamson wrap!
I probably shouldn’t be wearing it as a beach robe.. but ah well lol

Headed to a massage on the beach!

Super pumped!

Gorg view from inside!

I brought my under water camera! It films & takes cool photos under the water!

I hope these photos convinced you to take a vaycay!!! :)

Love you guys!! xo

Must Haves: Minx Nails

Posted on:

A while back (August 12), I tweeted the above pic introducing you all to my Minx nails with my beloved electric guitar (that I played in my Test Drive video). I got them done for 1 of my album photo shoots & for the Test Drive video. Now it’s time I put you on again, but with 2 new styles I LOVE – Lace & 3D

Minx: I fell in love.

Minx is an adhesive applied to your nails. It gets smoothed on & put under a heat lamp so it sticks perfectly. It’s fast, It doesn’t damage your nails, can stay on for weeks & there’s NO drying time!! So no worrying about smudging or walking around like a diva cause u can’t touch or do anything while its wet lol..

My Minx Tech Mich came to the condo & did my hands & feet in “Sasha Fierce Silver”. Which turns out to be the first & last time that color gets used on anyone that’s not Beyonce, as Beyonce has the color blocked since it’s her “signature” color & was used for the “Single Ladies” video. (Now that’s fierce!) Unfortunately, I found this out after I fell in love with it & wanted to do it again. I love Minx so much, they offered to create an exclusive color just for me & include it in retail! I’m thinking a nude-pink color with crazy glitter/sheen! Thoughts? (It be super cool to bring my color when I hit the tour bus to share with my girl fans across the country!)

Mich is awesome! She came on set of the video and we did hands & feet in gold, than pink, then silver!

My Minx Technician Mich – Doing Minx touch-up’s on set!

To learn more about Minx, check it out here & see where you can find a nail tech near you! It’s the same price as a regular mani/pedi!

I recently heard about new hot ways to do our nails! Lace Nails and now 3D Nails!

Lace: I really love this & it’s very easy to do. Surprisingly, if you bring the color lace you want, there are some nail tech’s around that will do it for you! All you have to do is ask!

3D: This is my new favorite thing and something my girl Cassie put me on to – 3D Nails! Here’s a picture of Cass rocking them! Stay tuned for her new album coming out next year!

Finding nail tech’s skilled enough to do the above things is a task, but well worth it – especially if it’s a special occasion! You’d be surprised to find that their ARE some places in your area that can do it, and do it right!

Now the question – Which do YOU prefer??
