Welcome to Citrus Love! A blog dedicated to inspire you to live a colorful life.
The inspiration for this blog started in early 2016 after the birth of my son Sasha. I had a gut feeling that I was meant to make a change in my life…maybe having a baby does that to you… but I had a « it’s now or never » kind of feeling. Honestly, the first 3 months after giving birth were the most challenging of my life. It was through other blogs that I found stories and insights that gave me the strength to navigate through the thousands of emotions and changes that happens to new mothers. I realized that there were things I loved and things I learned that I also wanted to share with others.
With that being said, this blog is my way of sharing with you the best tips and lessons I’ve learned about what I’m passionnante about such as using color to enhance your wardrobe, sharing carefully curated tried and tested “Oh So Good!” recipes, as well as essentiel motherhood tips to lead a simple and more colorful life.
I’m a French Canadian gal that grew up on a farm close to a small town in Alberta. My mother was always one of the best dressed women in town. She would sew my sister and I clothes until we were….well actually, sometimes she still does, haha! So ever since I was a small girl, I became interesting in fashion, colors and the psychology behind how people dressed. Eventually I moved to the big city of Montreal to do a degree in Fashion Marketing. Having worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years, I’ve noticed that most people cringe at the thought of getting dressed in the morning. For me, this was one of the fun parts of my day. I enjoy mixing and matching colors, textures and prints to create an outfit multiple ways. Oh and did I mention that I LOVE color…like the word « Citrus » which represents some of my favorites! I also enjoy reading, child psychology and finding new ways of keeping a healthy lifestyle with exercise and a positive mindset. If you do too, we’ll get along great!
I hope that you will find here some colorful ideas and please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or just to say hi!
Color your life, color your style and color your food!
Thank you for following Citrus Love!
