Is it your time to change?

Come spring, we all feel energized and ready for a bright and sunny season. In many countries, Canada included, spring seems still so far away!

But i felt like i needed a change (we are in april!), so i went and cut all my hair off, bought me some bright lipstick and i feel already rejuvenated!

To be honest, i don’t know if chopping my hair off was such a great idea (at 16 it looks cool, at 42…), one of my daughters sent me crying faces when she saw my picture, and my mom hasn’t seen me yet (she’s a big fan of “feminity lies in the hair” thing)! But, i needed the change, and it’s only hair, so here i am!


Other changes would be adding some flowers to your home, bright colorful flowers that bring the outdoor inside your house.

As i mentioned here , flowers alter your mood and make you happy!


In mediterranean countries, they celebrate spring by taking advantage of all the new produce of the season, and cooking different dishes with different vegetables.

Sadly here, it’s a bit too early for that, but we still can cheat, by cooking lighter meals, using the produce at hand in different ways; i always have lemon in my fridge, and i believe that there is nothing like a squirt of lemon juice to brighten up a dish! My mother has always a dressing she makes ready in the fridge:

Lemon juice, olive oil, crushed garlic, salt and pepper, and a dash of tabasco. It’s great on salads, broccoli, cauliflower, grilled zuchini…Works with almost anything!

What are your plans for spring changes?

      I realized that life is all about challenges, and the more there is change, the more it’s challenging and fun! Yasmine you did the IBake page and it is a huge change from what you wanted to do 2 years ago! So girls, we are all changing our lives for the better 🙂

      Thanks Aliaa!! Change is good for all of us, it’s a kind of evolution, and it can be in many ways :)…

    I LOVE it. I just got some similar today. My husband is not too sure, but I posted a couple of pictures and so far, only positive comments. We only live once, and we need to do things like this for ourselves every once in a while! Besides, you are very beautiful and it comes from the inside… :o))
