I definitely love beauty and makeup things. And for me, there are products that are simply essential. It is not a matter of getting the great smoky eye look or the retro princess one. It is mostly about products that regardless of the day’s mood that may influence the selection of the look for any given day, remain an absolute necessity. More »
In my life, the idea of a steady plan is simply that… an idea or an ideal haha. Any day during the week I might have one or two impromptu events: from drinks with coworkers after 5pm, to a friend just stopping by at my place to say hi. While the first kind of activity doesn’t involve a lot of trouble, the second one can get tricky. Especially if your fridge is empty. When I accepted this reality, everything became a matter of making sure that I always had food to offer in case of a totally improvised visit. More »
Meditation is in no way something new. Nor a new trend that some “special” people are incorporating into their lives. Meditation has been there forever and with such a hectic lifestyle most people have nowadays, it is clear that some of them will look for a way to calm down and learn to enjoy life! More »
This is huge… really. With my latino hips that definitely don´t lie, the pyjama-style pants or any patterned bottom were out of the table. Even if I don´t follow all of the rules when it comes to fashion (not always a good thing, I must say), my gut always kept telling me that anything too catchy from the waist down was the worst idea possible. Until I found these trousers at H&M… I loved the colour, the fabric, everything. Besides, I was shopping with my BFF, and she encouraged me to at least try on the pants to see how it might look once on me. I loved the result and then, well, yes, it was a happy ending for me and my new pyjama-style patterned trousers haha. Now the challenge is how to wear these new friends. Some ideas are:
Please note that, except for the trousers (30$CA), all the other pieces are for demonstration purposes only… I’m not yet in the club that entitles me to get 1500$ tops or shoes.
And another month is over!!! I can’t believe how fast we’re starting the fourth month of the year!! The weather has been so crappy here in Montreal, it seems that Winter hasn’t gotten the memo about taking a long break and give us, tired montrealers a nice Spring.
But well, nothing can beat a wonderful Mardi Grass Evening at the Divan Orange with Speak Easy Electro Swing as a special guest! I loved being all masked, though next time, I will probably get a mask that doesn’t mess with my big nose haha.
March was also (for me) the month of the impromptu visits! I hosted a couple of times without a lot of previous notice, still, everything turned out great at the end (more on that in a future post!).
And this year highlights the entry into a third decade for a lot of people that I know! Sisters, friends, cousins, acquantainces, everybody is turning 30 this year!!! Hahaha. The first friend celebrated in March and had the AMAZING idea of inviting us to a Moroccan restaurant in the Old Port called La Ménara, I had the time of my life and be sure that I’ll be talking about that later and also coming back in the near future!
Good-bye March, hopefully April will bring the Spring at last!
