La folie du kaki

Vous souvenez-vous de la collection printemps 2010 de Balmain? C’est à ce moment que la folie du kaki a atteint son apogée dans l’univers de la mode et où j’ai développé un réel amour pour cette couleur. Certains disaient que les looks créés par Christophe Decarnin étaient plutôt trash mais c’était exactement ce que j’aimais. […]

Style icon Carine Roitfeld

Those who know me won’t be surprised by this Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW) choice. Carine Roitfeld is and probably always will be my all time favourite fashion editrix. I know there are a lot of edgy, artsy, cool, young fashionable women out there who are the IT girls right now but I don’t really care. […]

Seems like the perfect moment to reflect on some of hottest looks that walked the streets of Italy before admiring those that will go down the catwalks in Gai Paris. The classics (or, don’t fix what […]

Bottega Venetta cardigan Spring 2015

The cult of the cardigan

After watching the Bottega Veneta collection go down the runway during Milan Fashion Week, I developed a mild obsession with covetable cardigans. Maybe it’s because the days were getting cooler just as I left Montreal or perhaps I’m just switching gears and getting into the mood for Fall fashion. Whatever the reason, I was determined […]

Restaurant SU: une merveille à découvrir

Hier, c’était ma fête et pour célébrer l’occasion mon père et moi sommes allés au restaurant SU à Verdun. J’avais découvert cette petite perle turque lors d’un brunch avec des copines et j’avais ADORÉ mon expérience donc je me doutais que j’allais être autant satisfaite avec leurs repas du soir. Laissez-moi vous dire que je […]

When not getting what you want is exactly what you need

Have you ever had moments in your life where you wanted something so badly it was all you could think about? You believed that once you got that dream job, house, man, designer bag, perfect hairstyle, best friend, that everything would just magically fall into place. Not getting what you want can be extremely frustrating […]

Espace Pepin Maison: un must à découvrir

Je n’en reviens pas que ça m’ait pris aussi longtemps à découvrir Espace Pepin Maison, une merveilleuse boutique déco située dans le Vieux Montréal à peine à 5 minutes de chez moi. En fait, Espace Pepin Maison c’est plus qu’un simple magasin. C’est un endroit où l’on peut faire du shopping mais c’est aussi un […]

Blake Lively in Vogue magazine

Seeing Blake Lively in Vogue magazine has brought my girl crush of the Gossip Girl star to a whole new level. This shoot is E P I C. The backdrop is magnificent (the Teton mountain range in Wyoming) and the clothes are sublime: we’ve got fringe, feathers and fabulous faux-fur. And if that isn’t enough for you […]

Hergiswil Switzerland: home is where the heart is

I just got back from spending three amazing weeks in Hergiswil Switzerland. Why Hergiswil? Because that is where my boyfriend is now located. I wanted to see if this urban girl could see herself living in a town of 6000 people and just 14.2 km2. Just as a point of comparison, Montreal hosts over 1.8 […]

Coups de coeur à Lausanne

Je dois tout d’abord vous dire à quel point ma visite à Lausanne a été mémorable et ce, pour plusieurs raisons, mais la plus importante est que j’y ai rencontré une fille ultra sympatique qui vient du Québec nommée Julie-Catherine. Tout comme moi, Julie est blogueuse, passionnée du mieux-être et a quitté le Québec pour […]

It’s romantic, energetic and enchanting. Here are a few more reasons why Lucerne has a special place in my heart. I loved […]

Why your intuition is your most valuable asset

Over the past months, I’ve had the honour to be interviewed on a few occasions to share the story of why and how I decided to “give it all up” and follow my dreams. As I recounted the path that lead me to several important decisions (the biggest one being quitting my job), I realized […]

Last Monday, I had my first Swiss yoga experience. I didn’t know what to expect from the local yoga scene when I arrived but I have been pleasantly surprised.  When I did a search for “yoga Hergiswil” (where I am staying) I was happy to find Living Yoga, a studio located just a few minutes […]

Guten Tag from Switzerland!

Hi guys! I am writing you from Switzerland sitting at a makeshift desk in an almost empty living room. There are tools on the floor and Ikea instructions piled on the table next to my laptop. Although my set-up is pretty basic and there is a slight feeling of organized chaos around me, I can […]

Nature Girl: luxurious organic beauty

I am so in love with NATURE GIRL organic beauty range. I was turned on to natural beauty products about 8 years ago when visiting San Francisco. I went a little crazy in the beauty aisle at Whole Foods as they had more choice than any store in Canada. I had cut out pages from […]

You are very powerful

I love that inspiration for my blog posts often comes from the fabulous people in my life. In this case, it stems from a discussion I had yesterday with my business partner Jennifer. We were chatting over lunch and all of a sudden it dawned on me how many amazing women doubt themselves, criticize themselves, […]
