Fairmont Royal York Hotel Royal Wedding Celebrations

Thank you to Cristina Tengalia of CP24 and the Fairmont Royal York Hotel for interviewing me live today about the birth of a new Prince. A dream come true for a lifelong royal lover. I grew up with the Royal Family and I love that the Duchess of Cambridge honoured the beautiful Princess Diana in her outfit choice leaving the Lindo Wing.

The media’s visit was to launch the Royal York Hotel Romance month in celebration of the upcoming Royal Wedding. A little Prince decided to be part of the celebration. If you live or are visiting in Toronto, definitely drop into the Royal York to savour the new English Garden. If you are looking to view the upcoming Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms, Meghan Markle in style and without a trip across the pond, you may wish to plan a visit to the Royal York for their Duke and Duchess for the Day or one of their other Royal York Hotel Romance stays.

For me personally, I cannot wait for the Royal Wedding and watching what is ahead for the Royal family and the impact they will continue to make on our world. ❤️

A Well-Fitted Bra

A well-fitting bra is a worthwhile investment and getting fitted is the key to the perfect fitting bra. All too often women are wearing the wrong sized bra and ones size changes too. For more than two decades, Legs Plus & Bra Boutique run by BFF’s Rhonda and Randi has been my go-to bra boutique. All the ladies that work at the shop are super helpful and they have an extensive selection including hard to find sizes. I love that they have brands one won’t find in a department store. A few of my everyday favourites are Chantelle, Fitfully Yours, Wacoal, PrimaDonna and Fantasie Lingerie for strapless ones and Anita for Sports Bras.

Whether you buy an everyday bra or one for a special occasion, make sure to take care of your investment by following these practical tips.

If you haven’t been for a fitting before, I highly recommend going for one next time you need a new bra. Always wear a t-shirt when you go for a fitting that you can pop over everything you try on to see what truly suits you and your body. Also make sure to factor lots of time to try on many styles and brands on. If you are in the Toronto area, definitely drop into see the ladies at the Bra Boutique. They will help you find your perfect fit.

A well fitted bra can not only change the way your outfits look but your confidence too.
