1) A big bright bag.
Jemma emphasizes on the bright, and lucy would probably do so for the BIG (her bags usually take up half of her whole body size). Take the following example:
We find that if you realize that you have put on an insanely boring outfit right when you start to head out the door for work, a quick fix would be to keep your bag interesting… and what can be more interesting than a big ass bag in hot magenta pink which catches all the attention from your black top + black leggings + black boots + black jacket outfit? What a statement made!
2) A glass of soymilk a day.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past decade, you probably know that cow’s milk is a big nono for humans like you and me. Why? Simply because mammals aren’t supposed to drink milk from other species of mammals, and we aren’t supposed to drink milk at all after childhood. Drinking milk (especially cow’s milk) in adulthood gives you too much calorie intake (making you potentially obese), too many harmful cancer causing chemicals used to make the milk last longer, and too many wrong enzymes which are toxic to your body and take away your calcium rather then supplement you. For more info on why you have not been informed of this all your life (it’s not your fault if you don’t know, actually), read NY Times bestseller Skinny Bitch (Lucy’s fave book of all time) by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, models turned writers. If you wanna be healthy and have a bangin bod that comes easily, think twice before you don the malicious mustache, and take pride in enjoying soymilk with your daily starbucks fixes.
3) A pair of wide leg trousers.
Equal parts masculine and feminine, the wide-legged trousers totally scream out HOTNESS. We don’t know whether its the fact that we’re gaga over the 60s style, or whether an androgynous style simply shouts COOL no matter who’s wearing it (think jennifer anniston). As opposed to the wide-legged denim jeans that were back in style 2 years ago, the trouser is more sophisticated, more stressed on cutting and elegance, and more versatile because it can much easily be dressed up. Girls, these are a must have in an era where trends are moving back towards coco chanel-esque expectations on being ‘put together’ rather then the sloppy preppy styles that we have so become used to. For spring, opt for light colors (beige, white) and match with dark tanks or blouses tucked inside and paired with an intricate belt (thick or thin will both look good). With the wide leg, you can wear a comfortable wedge rather then those painful stilletos, and accesorize your world away with all the extra body space that comes with the elongated legs. Wear you hair loosely to balance top and bottom.

4) A good, local café with a patio
We’ve always imagined spring filled with lazy afternoons when we would just relax with a bunch of girlfriends catching up on the latest gossip on our rivals and sipping on our mocha lattes and strawberry banana smoothies with our big Chanel sunglasses on (sun or no sun). The café must have both the healthy and the unhealthy. Fresh fruit juices, egg white omelettes and yogurt parfaits are for the afternoon tea breaks from a long day of shopping for your new summer wardrobe (must fit in those bikinis!). Cookies & cream frappacino with extra whipped cream, french fries with loads of ketchup and double chocolate cheesecakes are for the days when you partied way too hard the night before and is experiencing a very brutal hangover. It must have good comfy couches (stay away from leather ones, personally it hurts my ass) and they allow long, long sittings and would not mind the occasional loud LOL-laughters from a bunch of gossip girlies. And we emphasize on a patio because well, aren’t we all sick of the winter indoors already? Plus, we need an occasion to rock out our new shades. If all of the above requirements are fulfilled, congratulations, you have found your ultimate hangout place in which you and your girlfriends can sit for hours and hours, enjoy great food and drinks, and chit chat all worries away.
PS. Building good relationships with the owner or waiters are a PLUS! Always work your charm girls, always work your charm ; )
5) A few good blogs bookmarked.
Okay, obviously we’re not hardselling Pink Poutine because we did say “a few good blogs,” which also means we’re promoting for our competitors. We strongly emphasize how important it is for our PP girls to keep up with the latest of the latest.. in gossip, fashion, health, parties, news, etc. etc. Our girls are knowledgeable in all areas of the spectrum thank you very much. Especially since summers are usually the best times of the year — it’s when everything that can happen will happen. We need to be prepared to be discovered, prepared to amaze and wow others, prepared to make it the best summer yet. There’s no better way to do so than… to READ PINK POUTINE! (okay fine, and other blogs as well.)
– love jemma & lucy
