4 TRUTHS ABOUT THAT #BLOGGERLIFE

I often hear the following 4 words when I receive a package for a collaboration or an invitation to a hip event: “You’re so lucky”, but to be honest, there is no luck involved here, it’s all about hard work! Let me put this into perspective, a blog requires a lot of time & effort: create an outfit, take photos, edit them, write the article, make contacts, meet people, constantly create great content that’s ‘different and engaging” and put yourself out there…. how long does all this take? Countless hours! Basically, anytime I don’t spend at my 9-5 job, I…

FORD MUSTANG GT EXPERIENCE

In another life, I was a race car driver! I had the tremendous opportunity to test drive the Ford Mustang GT 2017 for a week. I went everywhere with it: work, blogger events, groceries & trip to QC for the Festival de Music de Quebec, so I was really able to experience it. One main conclusion steams from this experience: I’m a sports car kinda gal and I completely fell head over heels for the Mustang GT 2017. Powerful from the deep rumble when idle, to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, the engine of this Mustang GT is all…

MAXI DRESSES & SRAW HATS

I feel like I have so many things to share…so let’s take a deep breath and let’s do this! So, 1st of all, Summers (or if you can call this unpredictable ever-changing weather we are having in Montreal as “Summer”) are made of maxi dresses: Easy to wear, light, instant outfits! Just look at this California Moonrise off the shoulder red floral maxi perfection – drooling over it, I swear. Probably one of my favourite things in my closet! I have been wearing this brand from its inception and I feel it just gets better and better with time (like…

HOME ESSENTIALS

Home sweet home! Except… It’s been almost 5 years now that my hubs & I have been living in our condo and it’s still unfinished. Bare walls, missing light fixtures, random blue wall in the bathroom that doesn’t match anything – you name it, we’re the worst. I blame it partly on laziness, partly on the lack of time, but mostly b/c I’m really picky. I analyze everything at least 100 times before it crosses my doorstep. This year I decided that I will finish the place and make it home-y (challenge accepted)! So far, I’ve accomplished 2 things: got…

HAPPY B-DAY CANADA!

150 years of greatness – I’m so proud to be Canadian! For this special occasion, I partnered up with Le Chateau to put together a Canada Day worthy outfit featuring some pieces Made In Canada! White & red represent – outfit details below! To celebrate Canada, I thought that I’d share my top 5 reasons why I love it: 1- The people – kind, welcoming & open minded 2- The healthcare – yes we have long wait lines (ok let’s not get into that lol), but the treatments are free and available to everyone. 3- The educational system – pretty…

#5DAYSOFGRAYES

When did a boring black suit become the corporate uniform? Guilty! Don’t get me wrong, a black suit can look great, as long as it’s paired with a fun top! Ladies, you can look stylish & on trend at the office just as much as on the weekend. The key is to invest in some great basics and build on them by mixing & matching with your current wardrobe. Easier said then done? Well, I took on the #5DAYSOFGRAYES challenge to find out for myself. The idea was to take two pieces of Grayes clothing: the classic black pencil pant…

WEDDING GUEST

Wedding season is upon us ladies! I don’t know about you, but I always end of having 2-3 weddings a year. Of course, each requires it’s own outfit right?! ‘Cannot be seen in that again, duh’. But, when you start adding it up: wedding gift, new dress, hair & makeup, accessories… it’s easy to get ruined. That’s why I wanted to show you a look that’s under $100, yet looks like a million dollars. Believe it or not, I got this gorgeous fit & flare dress at Dynamite! It’s a nice scuba knit fabric that looks ultra luxe! It retails for…
