Writing this as Aliza is sleeping in my arms, after a fun Eid day 💗 Soaking up every moment with her before the arrival of baby #2 💕 Getting emotional as I realise we will soon become a family of 4 insha'Allah, and I will naturally be shifting a lot of my focus on her newborn sibling (while baba ensures she still gets lots of attention, and of course I will still dedicate time for her). Aliza has been my heart and soul for almost three years, and a part of me will miss our alone moments; at the same time I can't wait to have two precious children by hubby and my side, watch Aliza become a big sister, and add more love within our family insha'Allah 👫👧👶💖🙏
Une ptite dernière du @dinerenblancmtl de la semaine dernière! 5000 personnes toutes habillées en blanc qui se réunissent dans un lieu secret (et public) pour un chic pique-nique urbain!
Ce fut une soirée mémorable!
Merci @1milk2sugarspr pour l'invitation média!
Je ne suis pas une fille sportive. Je ne l'ai jamais été et je doute l'être un jour. Mais lorsque c'est un peu le chaos dans ma tête et que j'ai du mal à gérer comment je me sens, il n'y a rien comme enfiler une paire de running et sortir marcher dans le bois. 👟 Okay, c'était juste moins cool quand j'ai vu un crapaud et que failli me tordre la cheville! 😅 #inthewoods
Ma robe coup de coeur du moment 💐
Elle viens de l’@aubainerie des @galeriesjoliette 💞
J’ai vraiment appris à redécouvrir ce magasin et d’ailleurs, je vous ai préparé un article sur le blog avec trois looks parfaits pour la rentrée! Allez voir ça, le lien est en bio ✨
I may or may not still have my suitcases sitting in my office room. Unpacked. I’m going through my pictures from my NYC trip and wanted to share with you one of the few things that I got to experience while there. I was able to visit the Statue of Liberty with one of my good friend AnnMarie. I played the tourist and took tons of pictures! Even got a few with my instax SQUARE SQ6 Head on over to the blog for more pictures and some tips for visiting the Statue of Liberty @fujifilm_instax_northamerica #instaxSQ6#gifted#fujifilm#instax#solotravelingisfun
Let’s talk about foundation real quick! 👋🏼 .
I started really getting into makeup when I was 17-18. It started off with eye liner, then worked it’s way to mascara, then blush, concealer, and then finally, foundation. See back in the day (because I’m so old, right?! 😂 #sarcasm ), the variety of shades at the drugstore weren’t very wide..🤦🏻♀️ Basically you had to be a shade of beige with a pink or grey undertone. So I always struggled to find MY shade. 🙍🏻♀️
Fast forward to the present, where tons of brands are finally getting the hint that the world is much more colorful and beautiful than the range that they offer, and they starting to make the change, but there’s still room for improvement.
I feel like I’m finally starting to find shades that are right for me without having to mix two foundations. 👋🏼 #finally
So, now I want to know, what’s your favorite foundation? Drugstore of High End? Light, Medium or Heavy coverage? ✨🤭
Personally, I’m a medium to full coverage kind of girl. Unless it’s a “sun wants to burn my face and melt all my makeup off” kind of day 😂. Drugstore faves are the @maybelline Fit Me and the @lorealmakeup Infallible Pro-Matte. ✨ #MISbeautytalk
CORNET. Suis-je la seule à choisir la saveur de cornet 🍦 en fonction de si les vêtements qu’ils portent sont foncés ou pâles... question de ne pas tout tâcher? 😂 blague à part, j’ai déniché ce petit ensemble tout mignon chez @vestibulemini et c’est parfait et tout doux pour finir l’été et débuter l’automne. •••• ICECREAM. Am I the only one that chooses the icecream flavor depending on what they are wearing, dark or pale clothes so it doesn’t stain? 😆 seriously, found these cute pieces from @vestibulemini and they are perfect pieces between summer and fall! #backtoschool#kidsfashion

Today, I skipped the gym. It's not something you hear me say very often because it hardly ever happens. But sometimes it happens; I'm human after all. And when it does, it's a pretty clear indication that my body is in need of rest and recuperation. I don't know about you, but I personally need at least 7 hours and a half of sleep in order to function properly for the next day. If I don't get this exact amount of sleep, there's no way I'll be able to wake up and hit the gym for a workout 🏋🏼♀️
So because I wake up at 5:30am, there's no way I can go to bed later than 10pm. And yesterday, I went to bed at 10:30pm. I still set my alarm clock because I was really determined to drag my bum to the gym. But when my alarm went off that early in the morning, I found that I wasn't exactly in the working out mood. I was tired. So I went back to sleep and I'm so glad I did 🙌🏼
Why am I telling you this boring story? Because I never want you to feel obligated to work out and I surely don't want you to feel guilty for skipping a gym session. Remember - there's a difference between feeling lazy and actually needing time off 😴
I'm so glad I have this mindset and it's all thanks to pregnancy. Pregnancy has taught me so many valuable lessons, but the one that has stuck with me the most is to always listen to your body and respect its limits 💫
English follows .

No matter how many schedules we send, activities we book, play dates and babysitters we bring .... when Mommy’s away and Daddy’s in charge... all rules and regulations no longer apply 🤪😜😮 #momlife#instahusbandonduty#backhome
What often happens when people start making money is they begin to lose their purpose and forget why they started in the first place. They get blinded by the 💵 and begin to make irrational decisions.
I know all about this because at one point I was making a lot of money. Not through my business but through day trading. I saw myself getting greedy as the $ kept going up 📈
It became an addiction. I kept putting in more... And that's when it all came tumbling down. I merely placed bets and speculated based on hype.
I wanted to make money but I was doing it the wrong way; without clear research nor a goal. In the long run, if I kept doing this I wouldn't have been able to make it sustainable because I was essentially playing with penny stocks. I had no heart in the companies I invested in and I didn't know much about them either.
I realized over time that investing long-term was the smarter way to build wealth and I was better off starting my own company, one that I could really put my heart into building myself.
All of this to say, money really can blind you and make you greedy. Even with me, never have I ever thought it could possibly affect me, yet it did.
Never overlook your "why" it is the crucial aspect of every business and is the determinant factor of success. Most importantly, your why must be more than just money. The moment you leave yourself vulnerable to it, it can overtake you 🙈
How do you continue reminding yourself of your purpose?
By writing down your why, your goals and reading them continuously every single day!
