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!…

BRUNCH AT LA BISTROTE

I rarely go out of my way for brunch, but La Bistrote is worth the trip! Located at 1510 Notre Dame Ouest this cozy little bistro offers amazing brunch options! You can really taste quality and I find that a lot of brunch places skim on quality b/c “it’s just brunch” but this is not the case at La Bistrote. Each dish is perfectly curated by Dana, the chef & owner of the restaurant and the quality of the food is remarkable.  My hubby & I tried the French toast and the Quiche du Jour with a side salad. The French…

BRIDAL SHOWER

Bridal shower – a stress free event. Instead of telling you how my stomach is in knots right now, I rather tell you about my bridal shower :) b/c it’s an event a bride enjoys as she has no part in organizing it. Ahhh, THE BEST feeling! A month ago, my mom & my sister threw me and amazing Bridal Shower! It was an intimate gathering of family & friends at my mom’s place with tons of food, a crazy sweet table and lots of fun & games! The decor matched my wedding theme & the desserts were simply adorable:…
