WEDDING SEASON – SMILE BILLIANT TO THE RESCUE

  Wedding season is all about smiles! I got married last year and the at home teeth whitening kit I used seriously gave me the confidence to smile all day long. I’m a huge coffee addict, I drink 2-3 cups a day to be functional and I like my coffee black – no milk, no cream (you must be thinking ‘yuck’ but that’s the only way I can drink it now). Honestly, if I don’t have my 2nd or 3rd cup in the pm, I simply can’t do anymore work! I tried the whole ‘drink coffee with a straw’ thing,…

INSTA ROUND UP

ROMPER: Tobi Sunny Afternoon Floral Print Romper via TOBI // EYEWEAR: New Look Eyewear X Tansitions Lenses Miu Miu frames  The truth is, I don’t wear glasses, but I secretly find them sexy. So, when I heard that New Look Eyewear had transitional lenses, I had to try them. I decided to trust the professionals** in suggesting a pair that frames my face perfectly and I surely wasn’t disappointed -I got tons of compliments on these frames. They turn into sunnies when I’m outside, and they’re sophisticated, edgy & daring – that’s what Miu Miu is all about ;) They go with…

4 TRUTHS ABOUT THAT #BLOGGERLIFE

I often hear the following 4 words when I receive a package for a collaboration or an invitation to a hip event: “You’re so lucky”, but to be honest, there is no luck involved here, it’s all about hard work! Let me put this into perspective, a blog requires a lot of time & effort: create an outfit, take photos, edit them, write the article, make contacts, meet people, constantly create great content that’s ‘different and engaging” and put yourself out there…. how long does all this take? Countless hours! Basically, anytime I don’t spend at my 9-5 job, I…

TERRASSES BONSECOURS

Montreal in the summer = Terraces! Being cooped up at home all winter long, there is nothing better than catching some rays on a terrace – preferably in an up-beat ambiance, with a cold pitcher of Sangria ;) Now that’s what life’s made off. There are a bunch of places to choose from, but there is one that has me hooked: Terrasses Bonsecours! Located on the edge of Old Port, it offers the following: a crazy beautiful view of the old city (and the new carousel), great music, the biggest assortment of sangrias (Champagne Sangria, Mojito Sangria, Lichi Sangria….you name…

FORD MUSTANG GT EXPERIENCE

In another life, I was a race car driver! I had the tremendous opportunity to test drive the Ford Mustang GT 2017 for a week. I went everywhere with it: work, blogger events, groceries & trip to QC for the Festival de Music de Quebec, so I was really able to experience it. One main conclusion steams from this experience: I’m a sports car kinda gal and I completely fell head over heels for the Mustang GT 2017. Powerful from the deep rumble when idle, to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, the engine of this Mustang GT is all…

MAXI DRESSES & SRAW HATS

I feel like I have so many things to share…so let’s take a deep breath and let’s do this! So, 1st of all, Summers (or if you can call this unpredictable ever-changing weather we are having in Montreal as “Summer”) are made of maxi dresses: Easy to wear, light, instant outfits! Just look at this California Moonrise off the shoulder red floral maxi perfection – drooling over it, I swear. Probably one of my favourite things in my closet! I have been wearing this brand from its inception and I feel it just gets better and better with time (like…

HOME ESSENTIALS

Home sweet home! Except… It’s been almost 5 years now that my hubs & I have been living in our condo and it’s still unfinished. Bare walls, missing light fixtures, random blue wall in the bathroom that doesn’t match anything – you name it, we’re the worst. I blame it partly on laziness, partly on the lack of time, but mostly b/c I’m really picky. I analyze everything at least 100 times before it crosses my doorstep. This year I decided that I will finish the place and make it home-y (challenge accepted)! So far, I’ve accomplished 2 things: got…
