ENGAGEMENT PHOTOSHOOT

L.O.V.E. is what makes a perfect engagement photoshoot (and of course a good photographer & good planning – wink wink). We had so much fun during this shoot, words cannot describe the feeling to be honest. Looking into each other’s eyes, holding hands & laughing brought us even closer together & it gave us a glimpse of what our wedding day shoot will look like – can’t wait!!! I’m honestly head over heels with how this turned out; even better than I had imagined! Here are some tips on how to create the engagement shoot of your dreams – Pinterest…

WEDDING PLANNING IN FULL SWING

The countdown is ON: < 2 months before the wedding! Am I still stressed? You better believe it; but the stress level has definitely been lowered given that almost everything is ready to go & I have some great vendors I fully trust will make my day a memorable one. There are still some details that need to be taken care of and since the devil is in the details, I’m not taking it easy yet (although knowing myself, I won’t take it easy until the big day, lol)! For all future brides (& those last minute ones), here is…

5@7 SPOTS IN OLD PORT

Long work days call for unforgettable 5@7s! Located at the edge of Old Port, Marche des Éclusiers is a haven from the city noise – right on the water. The serene atmosphere really surprised me, even though the media event was swarming with people, I truly felt like I was outside of the city. Two floors of local small business owners offering a “genuine farm-to-table experience” of well sourced foods from organic drinks to fair-trade coffee! My personal favorites were:  pulled pork burgers from Diablos BBQ Smokehouse and coffee with homemade cookies from Volcanic Organic! We’ve all heard of the…

SALT ROOMS

Dry salt works! I was born in Poland, more specifically in Cracow (Krakow in Polish) & so I am familiar with the benefits of dry salt, however I never actually tried it for myself and truth be told I was skeptical. How can breathing salt actually help with stress relief, asthma, etc? It’s all about holistic therapy – something we are not very familiar with in North America, but which is widely accepted as a medical treatment in Europe. So, when I was invited to try you the salt rooms at Elite Laser located in Westmount Square, I was really…

W HOTEL STAYCATION

W hotel – luxe, contemporary & modern. A week ago, I had the opportunity to spend a night at this prestigious hotel located in the heart of the city, bordering Old Montreal. So I didn’t know this cool fact but the hotel’s design reflects Montreal’s history, the gold accents speak to the building’s history & the fur skin touches represent fur trading – it all screams Montreal & make this hotel unique in its nature. My room was located on the 6th floor & had a view on Square Victoria. It was a stunning open concept space with a king…

M.MME WINE BAR

M.Mme wine bar – the perfect place to un-WINE! ;) Wine lovers, this is a spot not to be missed – fully stocked wine cellar & delicious menu created around it! If you’re not afraid to try out new things, you will not be disappointed by the adventure the knowledgeable bar staff will take you on! Chloe & I had the opportunity to go on such a journey with Sebastien (barman), where we blindly let him recommend us wines that went with the food we chose – the result? A gastronomic experience like no other! We started off with Torello Brut Reserva Cava…
