DOLCE

There is nothing better than getting dressed up for an amazing cause (can I get a holler?!) For the 6th edition of Dolce, an event organized for the benefit of the Montreal Children’s Hospital, the theme was “Chic Shack”  – you guessed it: Glam-up version of a Sugar Shack. Young professionals came out to party to the sounds of DJ Abeille, eat some yummy treats & bet on some amazing silent auction items. The event raised $30K to support the Craniofacial & Clef Surgery Department! I am proud to be covering the event a 3rd year in a row and…

HIP SPOTS TO PARTY

I don’t know about you but after a long work week, I  need a 5@7 &  some alcohol in my system – ideally paired with some good company! So the only Q which remains is which spot to check out? Here are 3 new & hip spots I discovered in the last two months: 1- Atelier Argentine (355 Rue Marguerite d’Youville, Old Montreal): Apart from being a restaurant serving Argentinian food, this spot’s Thursdays’ 5@7 feature a new DJ every time! Have some food, have a drink and dance the night away! Hip, yet intimate athmosphere – perfect to hang…

LOV BRUNCH

I love all things breakfast, I could seriously eat it all day long! Eggs, waffles, fruit, dry cereal right out of the box (guilty) – you name it, I’ma eat it all day long :) So, when I heard that LOV, a vegan & vegetarian restaurant serving botanical food, started serving brunch, I just had to try it out! I’m not a vegetarian myself, but to be honest, lately I have been avoiding meat – I’m simply not craving it, in fact there is a lot of meats I don’t really like anymore. If there is a vegetarian option on…

SALON DEAUVILLE

6 months since I last coloured and cut my hair, needless to say I was in need of help! Luckily, I have some great Facebook friends who shared some of their recommendations and I decided to try out Salon Deauville ! 1st impressions are everything & Deauville surely delivered: great location with parking – check! It’s hard to find a salon with parking nowadays, without scrambling to find a spot or paying more than the price of a haircut (lol, ok a little over-exaggeration but seriously, it’s bad out there). Behind the golden doors it’s a whole other surprise! A stunning open…

PARMA CAFE

Parma Cafe – A little taste of Italy! As soon as my hubby & I entered the resto, we were hit with flashbacks from our Honeymoon in Florence. This charming spot opened just over a month ago in the middle of downtown Montreal (1202 Bishop) and it looks exactly like the little resto/shops we have seen in Italty! They serve amazing home cooked meals such as pizzas, pastas, sandwiches & salads, as well as specialities of the day – all at extremely reasonable prices! Aside from being a restaurant, it acts as a mini grocery store – over the counter…

SUGARBEARHAIR

I have really thin hair that falls out a lot – I literally have a hair brush full of hair after a few weeks of brushing, which is clearly an issue. I’ve been looking for a solution for a while now and I tired all kinds of shampoos & treatments without any luck. Although my hair gets some volume temporarily, nothing seems to provide any kind of long term effect. I heard of SugarBearHair via IG and the reviews were all amazing so I was super excited to give it a try! I got the SugarBearHair Vitamins 3 months pack which…
