NEW YEAR’S EVE 2016: THE PLACE TO BE

I always wait until the last minute to make NYE plans: story of my life! And I am not the only one! Everyone whom I asked thus far does not seem to have any plans either. What usually ends up happening is that I host a party at my place with family & friends. This year however, I’m too exhausted to host it.

JACK SALOON OLD PORT

If you’re a foodie & a fan of good music, you need to check out Jack Saloon!

Well curated wall paper & posters ornate the walls of each section, creating an ‘out of a Tarantino movie’ mood & vibe.

One of these gems is M Salon – rooted in Griffintown, the salon has gained a lot of popularity over the past year & opened a second location in Nun’s Island’s new & upcoming neighborhood. During the salon’s official grand opening event, I was greeted by friendly & helpful staff who gave me a manicure that honestly lasted over a week! Needless to say, it made my life easier that week ;) Girls from…
