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…

ALIMENTS -40

Working Chix – this one’s for you (and me of course, haha)! Between work, family & social life, sometimes there are simply not enough hours in a day, and cooking a meal after a hard day’s of work is the last thing we want to do. That’s the case for me anyway, I work 9-whenever, then I hit 1-2 or 4 events at night, then come home starving, wanting to eat, crash on the couch & fall asleep to Netflix. That’s why I could not contain my excitement when I 1st heard about Aliments -40!!! Located at 137 Laurier O,…

STROM SPA

Strom Spa is a real oasis located minutes away from downtown Montreal. As soon as you get to the edge of Nun’s Island, you feel like you’re hours away from the city, in the middle of nature with the view of the St Lawrence river. The spa’s decor fosters relaxation & tranquility and their facilities are well equipped to provide the ultimate thermal experience. My favourite was their steam room – my body felt so good to have eliminated all the toxins and I felt so relaxed! I also had the opportunity to try out a 60 mins Swedish massage.…

MLT DWN

I just love it when people are passionate about what they do; passion truly shows! Two brothers + huge passion for food = the best grilled cheese sandwich I ever had! Mtl Dwn is not a typical fast food counter, nor is this a typical grilled cheese! Each sandwich is unique & crafted to perfection after months and sometimes years of trial and error to get the recipe just right!  Have you ever had a lasagna grilled cheese?! The sandwiches are freshly made on order with local ingredients and let me tell you, the flavors are out of this world!…
