As 30 Rock’s token Republican blonde, Avery Jessup, once declared: Flats are for Quitters. It’s true! The perfect pair of pumps and a string of pearls can turn any outfit from drab to fab. I had been searching for the perfect blog title for months when I accidentally tuned-in to an episode of the Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin comedy. Et voila! Flats are for Quitters was born and I’ve been strutting it in my stilettos ever since.

I’ve been obsessed with fashion and beauty since I was a toddler in a tiara – actually, there's pictorial evidence available. Lipstick, handbags, feathers and furs have been my obsession for as long as I can remember. My mom claims I would actually cry every morning before kindergarten if she wouldn’t let me wear a dress. Growing up in Waterloo, ON, I spent my childhood and teen years competitively dancing and I truly think it’s the glitz and the glamour of the costumes that sparked my interest in all things LOVELY.

After attending Wilfrid Laurier University and acquiring in post-graduate diploma a Public Relations from Conestoga College (+ completing 2 cruise ship contracts as a Revue Show Dancer), I moved to Toronto and have been working the world of spin ever since. I live right in the heart of the city in a little bachelor apartment that I adore. I couldn’t ask for anything more perfect.

Flats are for Quitters is my not-so-private diary and my goal is to share with my readers what I’m loving, eating, reading, doing, wearing and why I think you might want to also. It’s the chronicles of the strange and awesome life that I lead, my pet peeves, my obsessions, my unsolicited advice (is there any better kind?) and a peak into the Toronto social scene. Beauty, fashion, food and fun. There’s nothing better!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you stay a while. Enjoy…and don’t let me catch you in a pair of flats. I will judge you!

American Music Awards 2011: Recap

November 22nd, 2011

Remember the time that I wasted 4 hours of my Sunday night tuning-in to the most boring awards show in the history of television? Yeah, I remember that too! On Sunday, ABC aired the 2011 American Music Awards and I could not have been more disappointed. I tuned-in to the red carpet pre-show, hosted by […]

Beauty Review: Eyebrow Threading

November 20th, 2011

I’m Italian – it’s a blessing and a burden! There are so many reasons as to why I feel blessed to have been born into the Italian culture. The cooking, the fashion and the easily tanned European skin are just some of factors that make me proud to hail from the boot-shaped country. Unfortunately, there […]

November 15th, 2011

I am going to go out on a limb here and assume that the majority of you are a bit concerned about my health and wellbeing right now. Please don’t fret! When I discovered The 17 Day Diet almost a year ago, it was not because I was trying to lose weight but because I […]

I’m a product whore. Yup! I will literally try almost any beauty product that is gifted to me and my condo looks like a poor man’s Sephora. I attend several promotional events each week and it has escalated to the point that I now have to give away half of my swag-bags due to condo crowding. […]

Happy Monday! It’s getting progressively colder outside and while I’m a bit of a sun baby, there is one thing that I love about the temperature dropping – COMFORT FOOD! As I have previously mentioned, my mom is the world’s best cook and comfort food is one of her specialties. Whether it’s her homemade cabbage […]

Beauty Review: LiLash

November 2nd, 2011

DISCLAIMER: I’m not a lawyer (obviously!) but I want to make a legal-ish proviso that you, my sexy readers, cannot hold me personally responsible for the growth of any extra limbs, your skin turning purple or any other crazy side-effects that may result from LiLash. This review is 100% personal and is an assessment of my […]
