WEDDING SCHOOL IS IN SESSION

Planning a wedding is a full time job. Honestly at beginning of this process, I underestimated the work & time involved in putting together such an extravagant affair. Being 7 months into the planning process, I really wanted to enjoy….but to be honest, I have not been having any fun; stress level at its highest! Organizing an original wedding that people will remember, that is in perfect harmony with your vision (and your family’s vision, you’ll see they have a lot of opinions when you start planning…..), and that will not cost an arm and a leg requires a lot…

MOVE WITH ARDENE

Healthy eating & working out – whatever it takes to fit into my wedding dress! In addition to that, two other things motivate me to workout: 1- Not fitting into my clothes (terrifying) & 2- new workout gear (exciting)! So, last week, wearing the new MOVE collection at Ardene, I hit the weights in full swing & I already lost 2 lbs! :) This collection is all about comfort; the t-shirt, leggings & bra are stretchy & easy to move in. The color blocking, vibrant hues, criss-cross backs & comfy sneakers are all the range right now & nothing looks…

#DOLCE2016

Dolce – a sweet event! It was my 2nd year organizing this beautiful event benefiting the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation and it brings joy to my heart to see it was another success! Over 300 young professionals gathered at the Loft Hotel to a Fun Fair themed party in order to support this amazing cause. All the benefits of the event will directly come in aid of children with craniofacial anomalies. There was food and sweets at every corner, a fully stocked open bar, fun fair games that captured everyones attention, amazing music by DJ Puppa Sacha & of course fabulous prizes…

CONTEST: SHOPPING SPREE IN COLLABORATION WITH LISE WATIER FOUNDATION & CADILLAC …

Being a single mother is not easy, I know b/c I watched my mom work day and night to provide for my sister and me. She made sure we were fed, clothed, and had the best eduction. Yet, she made it look easy. She was though, independent, hard working & confident; all qualities that helped her propel forward and which she bestowed upon us. We both got educated, became independent, autonomous, & financially stable. She is my idol, my inspiration, a person I look up too & the reason the Lise Watier Foundation is important to me. It is my turn…

BRUNCH – SOUBOIS STYLE

Brunch is life. No, but seriously, I could eat brunch all day long! I think the reason why I always struggle with diets is that I was not really meant to be skinny, lol. Don’t get me wrong, I am always trying to eat healthy & exercise, but how can you resist a blueberry pancake?! Well, if you were looking for the trendiest place with heavenly food, stop…. b/c I found it: Soubois. I had the opportunity to try out  their brunch menu last week and I must admit that I have developed a love affair with the 4 dishes featured…

HAPPENING GOURMAND

Happening Gourmand – the name says it all: food, food & more delicious food! I had no problem in temporarily ditching my diet last week to attend this media event, where we got a glimpse of some of the amazing dishes that are part of the reduced price lunch & dinner menus offered by 7 restaurants in Old Port from January 7th – February 7th (777 – is this a lucky number or what?) The participating restaurants are: Bevo bar & pizzeria, Modavie, Méchant Boeuf, Suite 701, Taverne Gaspar, Verses Restaurant, Vieux-Port Steakhouse & Kyo bar japonais. Some of these restaurants…

ACTIVEWEAR

It’s not easy to just snap into the ‘new you’ once the clock rings in midnight! It’s a nice thought, but it’s easier said than done. It’s been 10 days after the New Year and I did not start eating well or exercising regularly…yet! Today marks the 1st day of that resolution, and it’s ok that it’s about 2 weeks late. There are two great motivators to help you begin: 1 – not fitting into some of your clothes (guilty) & 2- brand new workout clothes! So, having trouble zipping up my favorite jeans reinforced this resolution. Equipped in all the…
