All That Social Media Stress…Time to Unplug?

Let’s face it.  You can’t live with it, nor can you live without it.  Many, many of us are addicted to it.  At the same time, however, it’s causing A LOT of stress.  With everything going on in the world, one’s news feed is pretty much inundated with other people’s opinions, often saying how they’re […]

It’s New York Fashion Week and I Don’t Care…

In fact, I have no plans to watch anything they’re streaming.  I just don’t seem to care anymore.  It’s not that I don’t like clothing or because I feel like the styles don’t apply to me, it’s just that it’s not something I’m not interested in writing much about anymore.  I feel like my posts […]

Do All Immigrant Experiences Count? Or Just SOME?

Everyone, important or not, seems to be writing or talking about their own immigrant experience or that of their family members.  That they came to escape persecution.  So here’s my piece.  Most of you know I’m a first generation Canadian born Canadian (or if you want to be ethnically accurate, Canadian born Chinese).  My parents […]

Let’s Face it – We’re B!tches to Each Other…

 …and I’m not the first to write about this.  Yes, ladies, we’re mean.  We hate each other and we’re often WORSE to one another than men are to us.  Most of us grew up hating our mothers criticizing us for what we did, yet as adults, we do the same to one another – especially […]

Do You Have a ‘Regular Look’? I Do!

I don’t profess to having a daily “uniform” a la Carolina Herrera or Mark Zuckerberg – as in I don’t wear the exact same thing daily.   However, I have a go-to “look” which changes depending on the season.  When it’s cooler out (say, October to late April or so), I like my long sweaters or […]

Happy 2017 and an (Eventual) New Look!

DelectablyChic!  will be more personal this year.  Things have been changing for me – focusing more on philanthropy advice than attending events, for example, has made writing more than once or twice a week more difficult – especially when it comes to researching areas in beauty, fashion and food. F0r 2017, I’m going to focus […]

Holidays are Coming!!!

With all the disgust in the world right now – especially you-know-where (and I will refrain from adding more, as it will be polarizing), can we talk about the holidays?  And even if one thinks it’s “too early,” it IS after Halloween, and in my books, it’s okay.  While I’m not big on chain coffee […]

TTC/National Ballet of Canada vs. Body Image Shows Our Lack of Interest in the Arts

By now, everyone in Toronto has heard about the TTC “We Move You” ad, featuring the National Ballet of Canada, which has caused controversy among many body image activists.  The latter are saying the dancers project a negative body image, causing many people to feel badly about their shape.  Say what?  It takes years and […]

That Fabulous Life of a Blogger

…NOT!!!  I’m no influencer.  I’m pretty much just some person from Toronto who runs a blog – just like hundreds of others in the city.  I don’t even get invitations to the so-called “coolest” parties.  I mostly apply for media passes or pay to attend as an attendee (I’d say it’s about 50-50 right now.  […]
