LIFE IN TORONTO – A MONTREALER’S PERSPECTIVE

I wanted to write a sequel to my previous article about life in Toronto, because it’s impossible to cover everything in one post without making it too long to digest! So, here is part 2 of my adventures and learnings about this city! A place to call home You probably heard about the real estate market in Toronto, but seeing is believing. I refused to think that I needed to pay double of my mortgage in Montreal to cover rent in Toronto. But, I had my standards: I wanted 2 bedrooms and I wanted to be close to downtown &…

LUXURY TRAVEL TO PUNTA CANA WITH SUNWING

Exhausted from packing & unpacking our lives during our move from Montreal to Toronto & drowning in a sea of what seemed to be endless boxes, we needed a vacation! Ismael and I both love to travel and explore new places like Greece and Croatia, but this time we were craving a relaxing & stress-free holiday in a luxury, all-inclusive resort.

COLORISTA

Photo credit: IG @anastasia.dudka.photo I’ve been wanting to try out a cool hair colour lately, but I’ve been too afraid. In fact, I’ve always been like that with my hair. My natural hair color is a dark blonde/light brunette, and for the longest time I wanted to go light blonde.

The second time, I got a lot more brave and I did blonde…

In fact, when my mom saw it, she got mad at me…
