I love it when my photographer (aka my son) is willing to accompany me to a nice location for a photoshoot.  We decided to go to English Bay since it’s one of my favourite spots in Vancouver.

English Bay is beautiful.  There are tons of restaurants, coffee shops and bars.  It’s a great place for a stroll, watch the sunset and listen to the waves.  In the summer, English Bay is the host to the Celebration of Light (a fireworks competition) which is something that you can’t miss.  I’m so blessed to live in a city surrounded by beautiful scenery.

I have always love cherry prints.  They are so cute and whimsical.  This dress is the epitome of a classic cherry print dress with a twist.  I plan on rocking this retro chic dress all summer long.  Have a fantastic weekend!

I reserved this top at Holt’s last month but the sales associate gave me the wrong size.  I didn’t realize it until I tried it at home.  I was like, “what the heck, it’s an extra small!”  I’m not a small, let alone extra small!  Luckily, it wasn’t too small.  I fit it and it feels great!  So friends, Equipment clothing is pretty forgiving.

Has anyone been following the World Cup?  I have, particularly my favourite team, Brazil.  The past week was dreadful to watch.  It all started when Brazil collapsed 1-7 to the Germans in semi-final.  I couldn’t watch the whole game, there was no point.  And then they lost to Netherlands and that was brutal.  In hindsight, I could sense that Brazil was not a strong contender for the World Cup.  I could tell by their performances in the first two games.  I felt they had a weak roster.  Regardless of what happened, Brazil will always remain my favourite team in the World Cup.

My second favourite team is Argentina.  I love Lionel Messi.  What a talent!  I was heartbroken to see Messi lose that way.  I had so much hope for them but then they fell short.  I hate to admit this but yes, the better team won.  I have nothing against Germany but they are definitely not my favourite team.  I don’t know much about them but I do know that they are the favourites to win this year.  Yes, I’m sad but that’s life.

Although the champions are not from my favourite teams, but in my opinion, this has been the best World Cup ever.  It all started when Marcelo scored into Brazil’s own net.  I panicked for half a minute.  I also love watching the underdogs, Costa Rica and Colombia, who played like champions.  And who could not forget Luiz Suarez infamous biting incident?  And yes, there was also my poor Brazil’s hero, Neymar, who broke his vertebra by Juan Camilo Zuniga of Colombia.

I love everything – the pace, the fans, the drama and the entertaining matches.  Thank you, Brazil.  I can’t wait for World Cup 2018.

Review: Footlogix #9 Foot Deodorant

Happy Weekend!  I’m sure we all used deodorant for our armpits, but has anyone ever tried foot deodorant?  I haven’t and I’m elated to receive a fantastic product from Nail Polish Canada for a review.

Let me start by saying I tend to experience foot odour during the summer.  It’s so embarrassing but luckily it’s very mild.  So, for those who haven’t experienced any foot odour, consider yourselves lucky!  Since I wear open toed shoes in the summer, I’m more prone to foot odour.  This is the perfect time to test out this foot deodorant.

I just hold the can approximately 4-5 inches away and spray it directly on the soles of my feet.  It smells very refreshing and dries quickly.  The mist is very fine and even.  I’ve been using it for the past few days and I’m impressed.  I love it!

It’s perfect for my youngest son who plays basketball 5 times a week.  He says it’s refreshing and relaxing.  I tried it on my oldest son and he thinks it’s just like perfume on his feet.  They don’t even mind it when I sprayed on their feet several times a day.  It’s addictive.  Lol.

It contains tea tree oil to eliminate germs and menthol to cool the skin.  It has no preservatives and it’s not tested on animals.

This foot spray retails for $19.00 on Nail Polish Canada.  Shipping is FREE in Canada.  You can see their full selection here.  I highly recommend it to anyone who has foot odour or any gym buff.
