POP OF RED

A pop of color to lighten the mood of this Fall like weather – it’s supposed to be Spring right? I’m a bit confused… Well, it’s supposed to pick up this weekend, but in the meantime, bundle up! What do you guys think of the lace cami on top of a blouse look? I’m loving it, but I feel it’s one of those “love or hate” type of things. Or maybe, it’s simply an acquired taste – like wine! Working in the Fashion industry definitely makes me step out of my shell and try new things, but I’d like to…

BRUNCH AT IKANOS

You likely know Ikanos as a greek and mediterranean tapas bar located in the heart of the Old Port. But did you know they now serve an “out of this world” brunch?! Whether you’re health conscious or a gourmand (like moi!), whether you prefer sweet or salty, or whether you like things simple or with a cultural spin – there is something here for everyone! The dishes are big, but meant to be shared for the ultimate family & friends experience. Also, let’s face it, when we get to brunch, we have the same dillema: salty or sweet? I say: both! So,…

CITY GIRL

I guess someone didn’t tell Mother Nature that it’s May, but hey – that’s Spring in Montreal for ya! To help you get through it, here is a list of essentials for this time of year: 1- The Gym Fleece Crewneck from Frank & Oak: Super comfy & warm – sure to protect you from the cold, not to mention you’ll look ultra stylish wearing it with denim & a tailored coat to give it that sport/classy look.

MANDY’S

Mandy’s seriously changed my outlook on healthy eating. I used to have a love/hate relationship with salads – in the sense that I loved the fact that they were good for me, but I hated eating them. And then I understood something, all my salads were boring: lettuce, tomato & cucumber – WRONG! Then, Mandy’s came along and introduced me to a whole spectrum of ingredients and how well they can blend together! At their new Old Port location, I tried two gourmet half-salads: half Roma salad (Italian inspired ) & half Habibi salad (Lebanese inspired) – both absolutely delicious!…

SPRING BEAUTY DISCOVERIES – PART 2

Part 2 was necessary b/c since Part 1, I discovered some absolute MUST HAVES! So without further a-do…. 1- Joe Fresh Makeup Collection: Truth be told, I didn’t even know Joe Fresh did makeup, so I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this collection! My favourite products by far were the compact eyeshadows – rich pigmented colors, & powdery texture which easily glide on the eyelid like butter & blend together perfectly.  They retails for $6 each and they’re availably at Pharmaprix (another thing to binge on when I head over there for drugs – oh who am I kidding, I’m mostly…

FRANK & OAK

I don’t know about you, but my inner cool girl has been dying to come out and play since the temeratures started to get warmer (and then they got back to low again, but still, I caught the bug and I cant help it)! When I heard that Frank & Oak was inroducing a Women’s Collection, I just had to check it out! I enrolled in their Style Plan and got two pieces: this black shirt dress & a green sweatshirt (post to come). I decided to write a little review of the entire process so that you know what to…

CLASSIC SIMPLICITY

We all know the saying “Less is More” but we tend to over-complicate, over-think, over-do, over-style, over-everything in our lives. In this look, I decided to go back to basics and show you how stylish simplicity can be. I still threw in the fashionable fishnet tights, but I kept all else neutral and clean – classic denim, crip cami, structured coat and a clean heel. Trying to apply the same thing to my life: eat healthier (instead of going on a diet), adapt an active lifestyle (instead of a crazy workout system I will let go off in a few weeks),…
