Aurum Activewear

As you all know, I have a post baby body and it has to go, like pronto, so I have been very committed to my workouts 4 to 5 days a week with Body Barre Movement. With the desire to have my body back came a desire for some new activewear and in my search for something fresh and different, I discovered the brand Aurum.

Miss prêt à Manger

One of my favorite parts of being a lifestyle/fashion blogger (aside from justifying my growing closet to my hubby) is all the great people I get to meet along the way. I’m extremely lucky to be surrounded by incredibly talented and successful individuals that always inspire me to reach for the stars. Let me acquaint you to a total boss babe, the chef and owner of Miss Prêt à Manger and Monsieur Resto & Bar, Kimberly Lallouz.

M.A.C. PRO

It's no secret that I have maintained an ongoing going love affair with Montreal.  Our city boasts a uniquely branded palette comprising art, gastronomic restaurants, fashion, and multiculturalism. Even though M·A·C (Make-up Art Cosmetics), was created in Toronto in 1984, its core philosophy of "all ages, all races, all sexes", mirrored Montreal's colourful DNA, making it the ideal location for its first outpost and my post of the week.

Staycation at the W hotel for Mother's Day

It’s no secret that I love travelling and one of my favorite parts is getting to stay in fabulous hotels. So to celebrate Mother’s Day, I had a staycation at the W hotel in heart of Old Montreal! I couldn’t imagine celebrating without my girls, so we packed up and headed over for a sweet escape in our very own city!

Fiorellino

This winter has been filled with amazing new restaurant openings around the city. There’s no better way to hide out from the cold then by warming up to all these marvelous menus and feasting from morning to night! From the men that brought us the cities longest standing premier supper club, Buona Notte, their brand new concept is a mixture of an Italian cafe, snack bar, pizzeria, and classic osteria called Fiorellino.

Ice Queen

Over the winter, I’ve been spending a lot of weekends up north in St-Donat with the whole family and it has been wonderful! It’s so quiet & peaceful, and there are plenty of activities to keep my daughters amused all day long! Though the cold is the ultimate excuse to stay inside and cozy up in the city, I always love to get outside, get moving, and have some fun with my fam! With all the great rinks around town, ice-skating has quickly become one of my/our favorite winter sports.

The design of the boutique is simple, yet elegant – just like the clothes that fill up the space. Natural, minimalist elements match the neutral palettes and silhouettes that make up the fall/winter collection. It’s the ultimate relaxed atmosphere to shop wardrobe essentials that you’ll be wearing for seasons to come. Anticipating the launch of the store all summer, I went on a total shopping frenzy on the night of the opening!

Cartel

From fashion and beauty to restaurants and nightlife, we’re seeing incredible talent across all platforms right here in Montreal! We all know how much I love to support local, so when I heard about Cartel Footwear, I couldn’t wait to scope the brand.

W Hotel

There’s an incredible feeling that rushes over me every time I walk into a hotel. Having all these beautiful amenities under one roof with the adventure of travelling can only result in total bliss. When I heard about the revamp at the W Hotel here in Montreal, I couldn’t wait to explore the glamorous new suites.
