First they said that plastic bags are not good for the environment, now they have discovered that traces of lead has been found in reusable bags. Something else to think about.

One thing that every woman should do is get a bra fitting. Many women are walking around wearing the wrong bra size. If the straps are digging in or falling off of your shoulder, you need a new bra. If the back strap is riding up then you need a new bra.

For many years now I have been getting a bra fitting as your breasts can change in size. Departments stores do not carry all of the sizes available, so you have to go to a bra fitting boutique. It is a great investment.

Today I went to Change and purchased four new bras as I needed some new. I had noticed for a while that my bras were too big. My band size and cup size had changed.

Change has stores in Canada, Scandanavia, Europe and the Middle East. Join Club Change and get 10% off everything. It is free to sign up.

Another store that I like is Secrets From Your Sister located in Toronto Canada.

My Cougar Experience

Last Tuesday I arrived home to the words "there is a package for you." I was so excited. I was awaiting the arrival of my boots courtesy of Matchstick and Cougar Shoes. I am one of only 85 influencers in Canada to receive the exclusive Cougar kit.

The Cougar kit included:
  • 1 pair of winter Cougar boots
  • 1 pair of rain Cougar boots
  • 1 Cougar mug
  • 1 Cougar sweater
  • 4 Cougar hot chocolate packages
Receiving the package was definitely the highlight of my day.  When I opened the two boxes I was very happy with my choices. The boots were gorgeous. I could not wait to wear them. They are definitely not the cougar boots that I remember from my childhood. I could not stop talking
about them the next day at work. By the end of the week I think most people that I worked with knew about the boots.

I wore the rain boots last week. I received many compliments. They are so cute. I was extremely happy with the winter boots. I have large calves and can never find boots that would fit. I wore them today and received more compliments. Awesome!!!

Style: TIBET


These are the perfect boots for surviving a Canadian winter. Best of all they are insulated and will keep my feet warm.

Thank you Matchstick and Cougar Shoes.
