BROWNIES

Holiday Season is fast approaching & if you’re hosting Christmas parties, it’s time to start thinking about what you will bake! Have you ever tried making brownies ladies?

TIGER & BOTTIES

European bloggers were all wearing tigers last year, and I really wanted a top like this, but couldn’t find it at any store in Montreal and it wasn’t yet a trend here. This year, the stores are overflowing with tiger sweaters & t-shirts. This tiger sweatshirt is cozy and can be dressed up when paired with a PU skirt or dressed down with jeans. Booties are hot this season and very comfortable. I have multiple booties in various hues, but that’s b/c they were a bargain or gifts for my b-day. If you own one black and one beige, you’re good to pair them with any outfit! Have a…

COLD WEATHER

Red, orange and yellow leafs have taken over Montreal. Fall is here & it’s time to bundle up! Wool is great for fall, especially when it starts getting really cool and a leather jacket just won’t do. This season, all colors have the green light, so if you like pop of colors, it’s definitely choice galore! However, the only thing is wool coats are usually pricey; therefore you’re better off choosing a neutral color that can easily translate from one year to another. That’s why I chose this belted heather grey coat from Zara last fall. I love the color…

LEOPARD PRINT

Animal print – from tigers, to leopard to snake skin prints – hot, hot, hot! Pair a leopard shirt with black pants, a leather jacket & a pair of heels and you are ready for drinks girls. The emerald earrings add a pop of color to pull the outfit together. This Zara shirt is also very versatile; it could be worn with pants as well as a skirt. Also, as you can see I paired this with a leather jacket I have already shown you before. The key to a perfect wardrobe is buying pieces that you can mix &…

HEALTHIER SNACK

Ok, so we all have cravings. Even when we try our hardest to stay on track and be healthy, we crack. However, it’s actually a good thing to indulge once in a while. The guilt of the indulgence will make you more interested in eating salads the rest of the week. However, be smart about it ladies, if you’re going to have a “cheat” snack, have a homemade one. I love chips and salsa – one of my favorite snacks, but I don’t like salsa in jars that I find at the grocery stores, so I did some research on pinterest on…
