Reinvent Your Style with These Trendy Pieces

Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: One of the favourite parts of a new season is when you can switch up your wardrobe and your look in general. When I moved to Toronto last year, I decided to implement more of the styles and trends that I have always loved but never dared to try in Ottawa. While I love my hometown, being too trendy or ‘dressed up’ always garnered a raised eyebrow. Now that I am living in a more fashion forward city where people embrace style and uniqueness, I feel I can truly be myself. My guest today is Amy Mia Goldsmith from High Style Life, who is sharing some great tricks on how to reinvent your style. Continue reading “Reinvent Your Style with These Trendy Pieces”

Can you believe we’re already halfway through July?! I for one am at a loss for words at how fast the time is flying by and how little I’ve gotten done on my #SummerBucketList!

Trying to figure out what to pack can be Continue reading “10 Things to Pack For a Trip + FREE Packing List”

Brushing with Activated Charcoal + 5 Things To Do This Weekend | www.lifestylequeenbee.com

Nobody wants to have yellow teeth. Sometimes you don’t even realize your sparkling white smile has taken a downward turn until you wear that new shade if red lipstick and *gasp* see the difference in your smile. Embarrassing, right? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We’ve all had moments of ‘less than stellar white’ smiles. That coffee-a-day (or 2 – guilty as charged) doesn’t exactly help your cause. Now before you lose your mind thinking I’m going to suggest quitting your much required daily cup of sanity, I’ve got a solution for you – Charcoal.

No, No. Not the kind you’ll be using this weekend to fire up the grill. Activated charcoal which is totally safe (& good for you!) to consume. Before you write me off as crazy, Continue reading “Brushing w/ Activated Charcoal + 5 Things To Do This Weekend”

Whether you’re hitting the beach, the pool or just lounging out back with a cold drink, here’s 5 great books I would recommend you pick up at some point this summer (consider these ‘oldies but goodies’):

 

  1. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn 5 Books To Read This Summer + Free Printable Colouring Page Bookmark
    This novel by Gillian Flynn (who wrote the addictive ‘Gone Girl’ novel) tells the story of Libby Day, who was just 7 years old when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. This was a definite page turner for me. I finished this book in 3 days if that tells you anything.
