The must-have travel stroller: Babyzen YOYO2 from Agatha Boutique

Finding the perfect stroller for your lifestyle can get a tad overwhelming, especially when you are pregnant. All you want is to find the safest gear for your baby and you obviously want to make sure the stroller fits exactly with your needs. Whether it's day to day activities, long walks, travelling, leisurely strolls around a city, you want the best and easiest stroller. 

On our end, we started by making a list of requirements, which were the following: 

  • light and easy
  • does not take too much space in the car
  • follows the baby from newborn to toddler age
  • perfect for travel
I've had the pleasure of working with the Agatha Boutique team since I found out we were pregnant. Agatha Boutique has an amazing inventory of brands and so many options to choose from, so we shared with them all of requirements and they presented to us the must-have travel stroller: the Babyzen YOYO2.
The Agatha Boutique team is so well versed and we trusted them to guide us towards the right choice for our lifestyle and needs and they aced it!!!

Perfect for travel
Before writing this article, I really wanted to us to use the Babyzen YOYO2 stroller for many different activities, including travel. Unfortunately, we have not yet travelled by plane (for obvious reasons) but the Babyzen YOYO2 fits in the overhead compartment on an airplane, which was the selling feature for us! Can you imagine pushing the stroller super easily through the airport all the way to your gate and boom, quickly folding it and bringing it with you on the plane, what a dream. We cannot wait to be able to travel again to test out this feature but we've heard amazing reviews from our friends who purchase the Babyzen YOYO2 after seeing us use it around town. 


Last weekend, we did have a little roadtrip up to Ottawa and we packed the Babyzen YOYO2 in our car, which took barely any room. The Babyzen YOYO2 stroller exceeded our expectations during our stay in Ottawa. It was super easy to manoever around town, small streets, very lightweight to carry up some stairs, we are so happy with our choice.

One of the things we really wanted to do with Mélina, our baby, during our Ottawa trip was to do as many restaurants as we can, so she could get used to it. Let me tell you, the Babyzen YOYO2 was an absolute dream because it takes barely any room in the restaurant and fits absolutely everywhere. One little trick, that we absolutely adore is the fact that it's super easy to change a diaper in the stroller with the 0+ pack, which sounds crazy but very convenient when your baby is crying and you are out and about, not near a bathroom. 


Last but not least, getting the Babyzen YOYO2 0+ pack as well as the 6+ pack was a game changer for us, because we wanted to make sure we got a stroller that would be convenient for the newborn stage and would follow our baby to the toddler stage. We are obviously planning on travelling a lot with Mélina and we cannot wait to put the Babyzen YOYO2 to the test and get back to you about that. 

If you have any questions regarding the Babyzen YOYO2, do not hesitate to reach out to the Agatha Boutique team, they are amazing and can help you with anything!

Lapiz of Luxury x Horace jewelry inclusive collection

If you've been a very long time reader of mine, you would know that in August 2016, I launched my first ever jewelry collection with my friends Horace Jewelry. It was absolute amazing and now, 5 years later, we decided to join forces once again to launch a second jewelry collection focused on inclusivity. You can shop it HERE now! 

Being a curvy girl, I always had a hard time finding good quality jewelry, especially necklaces, that were fit for my shape. I started Lapiz of Luxury to inspire women of all sizes to be courageous and confident in their fashion choices and to never back down when it comes to style. Launching this 2nd collection with Horace, it was very important for us to be inclusive and cater to everyone. 

This collection was inspired by my grandmother as she was the biggest influence in my life with the strength and confidence she always projected through her amazing fashion sense. I designed this collection around the Mélina earrings, which is inspired by her wedding band my grandfather gave her. 


The collection consists of 2 necklaces (the Yasmine and the Ani) that are 18 to 22 inches long and 3 earrings (The Mimi, the Mélina and the Coco) from a dainty one to a nice detailed hoop. 18k gold plated or .925 sterling silver plated, there is something for everyone.




Today, as I am bringing a little girl into this world, it is very important for me to teach her that EVERY woman deserves options and no limits. 

Shop the complete collection HERE

How to create the perfect date night with Le Creuset

Every week, Ever and I try to organize a little something special to add some spice into the pandemic life. It hasn't been easy but I truly think that putting a bit of effort into setting a nice table, getting dressed up and cooking amazing food can really change your mood and you can enjoy such a good evening. 

This month, we celebrated 4 years of living together and Ever organized the perfect fall date outside, so we can still enjoy the beautiful autumn weather. He surprised me with this romantic setup with a very cozy menu including one of my faves, onion soup. Last year, we got the Le Creuset Flame minimalist 16-piece dinnerware set and it has become our everyday set ever since. The Le Creuset dinnerware sets that are made of stoneware are super sturdy, very durable and so classy that it makes it the perfect daily dinnerware but also the ideal set to host friends and family for brunches and dinners (when it's safe again). 

The Le Creuset minimalist 16-piece dinnerware set is perfect for 4 people and consists of dinner plates, smaller Plates that can be used for salads or desserts, pasta bowls and mugs. We decided on getting the colour Flame because we wanted something that was vibrant and fun but I love the most is that all the available colours are season-less and can be used all year round. Also, most importantly this dinnerware set is dishwasher and microwave safe and comes with a 10 year warranty, an amazing investment in my opinion. You can also spot on our romantic dinner setup, the Le Creuset minimalist pitcher that can be used for 2 purposes, as a pitcher or as a beautiful vase. 


Then, we decided to use our Le Creuset mini-cocottes that are made of enamelled cast iron as a perfect serving bowl for olives and dips but they are perfect to bake the most amazing apple crumbles or souflés. Finally, we recently added the Le Creuset minimalist serving bowl to our collection because we eat salads pretty much everyday and we wanted a sleek but durable bowl. 


Investing in your dinnerware and cookware is a very adulting thing to do but in my opinion, it's a game changer because you are investing in quality and durability and that is what Le Creuset is all about!

How linen sheets changed my life

I've always been a lover of a nice bedroom decor, a nice cozy feeling because at the end of the day, you just want to snuggle in a warm setting that makes you feel good and one of the most important factors are sheets. Yes, you can find sheets anywhere and for a very long time, I settled for the sheets that I could find and didn't bother too much with quality. Sheets have to also be of super good quality, breathable, easy to wash and comfy. Our bed life changed when linen sheets entered our lives. We got the opportunity to try the linen sheets from Magic Linen and wow does it make a difference to have high quality sheets on your bed. We decided to go for a different colour to add some freshness to our bedroom and opted for the Duvet Cover sheets in Sage green and the Linen fitted sheet in Natural, it completely brighten up our bedroom and we've never slept better.
