GIFTS FOR THE GENTS

  #1: Playstation 4: As soon as a new console makes an appearance, men jump on it! At first, I didn’t understand the obsession, I mean the Playstation 3 is just as good isn’t it ? But then my bf explained that consoles only come out every 7 years – a lot of anticipation can be built up in such a long time. Besides, men think of new electronics just like women think about clothes. Can’t take that away from them, and if it makes them happy, why not? It’s expensive, so I would suggest it only if you have…

GIFTS FOR THE LADIES

  I cannot contain my excitement! This week’s posts are all about Christmas and buying gifts is my favorite part. What I don’t like about Christmas shopping is the crowded malls, so I decided to do it differently this year & I suggest the same to you: outsmart everyone and get your Christmas shopping done early! Then sit back, relax & enjoy the holiday atmosphere :) I really want to help you achieve this goal, so I did some research and came up with 15 really cool gifts any girl would love. Regardless of your budget, there is something in here for you!   #1…

LITTLE RED DRESS

What screams Christmas more than a Little Red Dress? I found this little gem at Zara a few months ago & I fell in love with the lace details at first sight! The upper back is covered with lace as well and it’s just stunning. I think red is such a romantic & sexy color & it looks amazing on any skin tone. This dress is a combination of sexy & chic and it’s just perfect for the holidays. It’s also easily transferable from winter to summer. I adore it! I’m wearing this one to my Christmas party at work :) Have…

HOLIDAY COOKIES

  Recipe: https://sites.google.com/site/hungryhousewifeprinterversion/cut-out-sugar-cookies-and-icing I have been browsing Pinterest & magazines for ideas on what to bake for the Christmas dinner parties I will be hosting this year & I found these adorable pastel cookies that I will be baking next week to bring over to a friends gathering. I love the pastel colors, but if you prefer the traditional red, green & white cookies, you can easily use different icing dyes. You can also have fun with the shapes – Christmas trees, snowmen, or even hearts, why not? I think these will impress my guests & will make great stocking stuffers as well for my co-workers &…

SPARKLY BLACK DRESS

Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday & I am really excited to share this 1st holiday post with you girls! We will all soon attend parties at work, with family or friends, and we need to dress the part. One of the best dresses for the holidays are sparkly & fun sweater dresses. They look gorgeous & they keep you cozy & warm :) The sparkly details of this dress give it great visual interest. It’s perfect for the holidays, but it can easily be worn to other occasions – it’s very versatile. I bought this dress at Victoria Secret two years ago and so far have worn it to a Christmas…

APPETIZERS

Tomato canapés Are you having friends over tonight & rushing to prepare dinner?  Well, if you’re anything like me, you want things to be perfect but fast. Unfortunately fast & perfect don’t always go hand in hand! Also, I like to give my guests a healthy appetizer, especially if lasagna is the main course. I have two recipes for appetizers I would like to share with you ladies to elevate some of the burden. The 1st one is something I just threw together when I was rushing the other day for a second dinner in a row that I was…

LA CHAMPAGNERIE

  The experience: Have you ever cut a bottle of champagne with a saber? It’s one of those experiences you feel excited, scared & intrigued about! That’s how I felt when I 1st tried it. What a sense of accomplishment when you do it right the 1st time & the champagne is drinkable! If you’re looking for a trendy place for a 5@7, look no further – La Champagnerie is the newest hot spot in Old Montreal. The good music, the dim lighting & the overall hip atmosphere lure in the crowds. If you don’t make a reservation, especially for larger groups, you…
