The new Demi Lovato song is QUITE catchy and let’s face it, I REALLY love it and perhaps it inspired me to write this particular post. The song is about her telling all of her haters that she is finally good, and happy, and she really couldn’t give a fuck if they are hating on her newfound happiness(haters will hate). I know for a fact that all of us, or at least a good 90% of us , can relate. Whether in your personal life, your work life, your family, your friends.
This is not a blog about how heavy I am and how badly I want to lose weight. This is not a blog about how I wish my boobs were higher, my ass were smaller, my thighs were slimmer or that my arms didn’t giggle.
Another year, another birthday! I love celebrating my birthday. I really really love celebrating it. I love it so much that it is considered a birthmonth instead of a birthday. Typical Gemini and somewhat annoying perhaps? Well, I clearly do not care haha My friends and family are used to it by now, although my husband (after 11 years of being with me) still thinks it’s ridiculous, but it doesn’t stop him from supporting my crazy and strange ways. This year, I am obsessed with pineapples. I love pineapples because they STAND OUT and they’re delish.
Summertime Giveaway in Montreal and OMG! Could it get any hotter today? Summer is here!!! I love having a fresh mani-pedi all summer and my friends from Spa ManiPedi are always there to take care of me and pamper me. They always know how to make me feel good and they encourage my wild colorful ways when it comes to doing my nails and toes. I am so happy I discovered them when I moved to my new neighborhood almost 2 years ago.
I read this awesome quote on Instagram recently and it said, “ It’s not about the size you wear, but the way you wear your size”. It was refreshing; I needed to read that because I always kind of FREAK OUT whenever “my size” doesn’t fit me in a store, but the size bigger does. My mother always feels the need to reassure me with the famous “their sizing is way off” excuse whenever this sizing issue happens. Love you momma!
People always describe me as happy, fun, and very optimistic. I cannot disagree with them, as I am a very happy person. I try to live in the moment as much as I can. I count my lucky stars, everyday , for the life I live, for my health. My struggles and battles make me stronger. I always try to stay positive, for myself and for those around me who have a harder time doing so. I am, by nature, a bubbly person, and I always find a way to smile about something (ok maybe not always, but most of the time).
We’ve all heard variations of the quote “when life knocks you down, get back up, dust yourself off and try again”, right? Although quotes like this are great and can be inspirational, I can’t say I agree entirely with them. I don’t mean to sound negative here, it’s just that from my own personal experience I have learned that it takes a support system to help you get back up and move on, because sometimes you just can’t do it on your own.
Hey lovelies. I am back. I’ve been back since Sunday actually, but I have had a crazy ass week. Florida was amazing. Lots of sun, beach, pool, shopping and food. OH the food. I don’t know if any of you will agree with me on the following statement, but the Pizza in Florida, especially in Fort Lauderdale, is AMAZING. Bloody hell.
I don’t want children.
Try saying it out loud. I dare you! I know, I know, I’m sorry. It sounds so dirty. It’s probably the world’s most misunderstood statement. It’s DEFINITLY the world’s LEAST accepted statement. My name is Dominique. I’m 31. I’m married. I’m educated. I’m well-traveled. I have a good job. I own a home. My car is paid off. I’d say I pretty much have my shit together.
Dresses. I love dresses. I love everything about them. For those of you who know me, I am not a delicate flower. I am a rough girly girl, but once I slip into my dresses, this rough girly girl can feel quite elegant, and sexy! I wear dresses everywhere and anywhere. I have always been that one friend in a dress, while everybody else is in jeans, tights, pants, or joggers (yes, joggers, this has happened), on a very casual night out. I can’t help it.Continue reading
