LBD

Indeed, every woman needs a Little Black Dress! In this post, I have decided to show you a conservative, office appropriate dress. It’s simple, long-sleeved and belted for a waist definition. What’s great about this dress is that it can be worn in cold weather and as we all know, Montreal is famous for its infamous winters – just add stockings.  Although I have paired it with cage sandals, you can wear it with booties or boots as well. Throwing on a classic trench gives it a polished look. I strongly believe that every career woman should have a trench coat. Especially if you work…

COBALT

One of fall’s trendiest colors is cobalt, and it’s one of my favorite colors. I think it looks good on any skin tone & it just simply screams “chic”! I love this cobalt bandage dress. I bought it last year during the summer, since cobalt was big in that season too. This is a great example of a garment that is timeless & that you can re-wear multiple times. Cobalt blouses and pants also look amazing, so pick whichever strikes your fancy ladies :) Dress – Dynamite Sandals – Lulu’s Clutch – Express Earrings & Bracelet – Swarovski

PLAID & LEATHER

Two of this season’s hottest trends are plaid and leather. A plaid shirt is a must have this fall, and it can be found pretty much at any store. I got mine at Urban Planet, but you can find a similar one at Garage, Mango, Zara, H&M or Guess. I have a plaid shirt in multiple colors: red, green & blue – I’ll show them to you throughout the posts. Whats really cool about plaid is that it can be dressed up with a leather skirt and heels or dressed down like I did here with grey distressed jeans. I…

Female Fitness Bible

Let’s face it ladies, when it comes to exercise, we tend to classify it as top priority but we tend to treat is as the least important part of our lives. I will admit, I do the same. There are weeks where I am true to my goal of going to the gym 3 times a week, and there are weeks I don’t even get one foot through the door. The reality is that we need to exercise regularly to be healthy, so I started thinking about why my interest in the gym fluctuates so much. I realized the there are two main reasons: 1)…

NYKS Bistro Pub

From upscale places to those mysterious holes in the wall, basically if it’s packed with flavor that I want to try. Here is one such place: NYKS Bistro Pub The menu has a wide assortment of options. In terms of pub style, there’s a variety of poutines and burgers, while on the bistro front, there are salads, tartars, mussels and homemade sausages. They also had some attractive specials of the day written on blackboards throughout the restaurant, these included ostrich and bison burgers (we weren’t adventurous enough to try them). Prices were fair with entrées ranging from 5$ to 13$…
