2019 Resolutions: Body Positivity, Healthy Diets and Shopping Sustainably by Didier Young

Hello everyone and I hope that you’ve all spent a wonderful holiday season! 2018 has been such a whirlwind and I am so thankful for all the good and bad things that have happened in my life. I worked with some of my dream brands, travelled far more than I ever had and even got engaged to the love of my life (I’ll tell you more about that soon). Now that I’ve taken some well deserved R & R, it is time to refocus on myself and on what I expect for the upcoming year. As it is the tradition, here are my resolutions for the year 2019.

Travel Diaries: Paris by Didier Young

Bonjours Paris! Not unlike most people in the world, I had been daydreaming of visiting the capital of the country that puts such an incredible level of focus on good food and fashion for years.

Gift Guide for Him at Scarborough Town Centre by Didier Young

While we are experiencing a rather mild December month in Toronto and the streets are still clear of snow, the air is infused with the scent of pine, mulled wine, cinnamon and cheer. That’s right people, Christmas is almost here (I tend to speak in rhyme this time of year).While I traditionally start shopping for my Christmas presents relatively early, I might have slacked off this year but thankfully there are one stop shop destinations like the Scarborough Town Centre where I know that I’ll be able to get most of my shopping done. In the spirit of Christmas, I decided to share a gift guide of items that you could get for the beloved men in your life at STC.

Winter Village by Didier Young

I am your father. You had me at Hello. I’m gonna make him an offer he won’t refuse. Movies and televisions shows have often been a source of popular culture quotes that transcended time. Each generation of viewers end up adapting their own jargon to the movies of the moment. I remember when Mean Girls came out and everyone could quote the entirety of the movie. To this date, I can still quote parts of it. Isn’t it fetch? In my everyday life, I make a lot of references to such quotes and yesterday I got to use one of my favourite ones from Gilmore Girls. I smell snow.

One of a Kind Online Shop by Didier Young

Tis the season to be shopping. It is mid-November and it once again this time of the year when we all have to wave our magic wands and somehow conjure up the perfect present: One that is personal, unique, pretty, within a specific price range and that your special ones have not purchased for themselves yet. It is becoming increasingly hard in this highly consumption centric society to find such a rare gem. Sometimes it feels like it would be easier to find a needle in a hay stack. Thankfully we have wonderful shows like the One of a Kind Show and its online shop.
