Insta-love…spread that shit everywhere.  Are you guys following me on Instagram? (@madabymada) yet?!  Not only will you get sneak peaks at my upcoming posts, fitness videos and tips, make-up,  but also – a look into my glutenous diet. Check it out.  These are my latest looks/posts from the past 2 weeks, just to give you a taste. You’ll have to follow me to see more!  As you can see, I love everything from ripped jeans, casual- to upper east side skirts.  My style is classic yet eclectic, so anything goes. Well, almost anything. I am a lover of neutrals after all.  

I also love to fins new and inspirational people and pages to follow- any suggestions?

Have a great weekend!





Wearing PJ pants….to work day


Another day, another comfortable outfit. These pants are actually called “pyjama style pants”.  How could I NOT in good conscience buy something that I can wear outside my cuddle pit (I have a giant couch, which swallows me whole and is near impossible to get up from) and have it still be appropriate? Not only appropriate, but incredibly fashionable. Come on I am LOVING showing a little ankle lately. Since I clearly have hips and a booty- I feel like showing a little ankle makes me legs look slimmer and longer. Especially with a heel. I paired my pyjamas with a bright yellow shirt. Yes, I know that it’s not quite spring yet- but I need to inject a little “sunshine” into my life even if it is in the form of a t-shirt. I can’t help it. Maybe I’ll get a little Vitamin D by osmosis. Probably not.

Cut to this stunner of a jacket. Can’t skip this step, after all…..I live in a polar vortex.  The faux leather is so real looking and soft, and the shearling…oh man. So soft.  Soooooo soft…..

Holy Grail Nourishment


Last Saturday I went for a couples massage at a local spa. Oh boy- was that ever needed. What a lovely experience.  I’ve been pining over vacations and day dreaming about sunshine for months now. I’m really over this winter, I gotta say. So the massage and sauna, hot tub, salt water pool was exactly what I needed to buy another month of this s*&t.

At the spa, they used Sothy’s products. Alhotugh I am a little bit of a product junkie – be it make-up, skin care, hair care, body, care, etc .  I have never tried anything from this brand. It’ s apparently not available in very many places and quite difficult to get ahold of, you can only buy it at select spas.  It hails from France, which already makes it kinda of luxurious and has a strong history of quality and refined ingredients.  There was one item in particular which completely intoxicated me. The Cinnamon and Ginger Escape Nourishing Body Elixir (whew, that’s a mouthful). I sprayed it while I was getting ready, and even my boyfriend immediately noticed, ” you smell incredible”.  Of course, the sweet heart that he is, he presented me with this delicious product after we left.  Swoon.

On to the Elixir. It’s a dry oil, incredibly nourishing as the name states and immediately softening. The main ingredient is Marula Oil, which is knows for it’s rejuvination qualities, intense hydration and  protection.  It’s suitable for all skin types also.  As mentioned, I’m getting tired of this cold and dry weather and so is my skin. In the 3 days that I’ve used that I have felt and seen significant results.  My skin is smoother, replenished and incredibly moisturised, without feeling thick or greasy. I like to shower, quickly moisturize and get dressed.  And, who’s with me here- but there is NOTHING worse then pulling on your skinny jeans after you’ve just douced yourself in lotion. Ughhhhh.

And the smell, OMG- the smell. Sooooo sensual, and soft and warm. Lingers around just enough so it’s not totally offensive.  Bonus- it can be used as a massage oil. The price tag may be hefty (buy it here), but the experience is a little bit of spa heaven.

Thanks Babe.12 IMG_8404
