LBD – The Little Black Dress

I understand that a little black dress is key to have in your wardrobe but until recently, all of mine have been too formal to wear on a day-to-day basis (even at the office). I found this t-shirt dress at Zara and instantly fell in love with its not-too-snug fit and its round collar. Not only will it be a staple in my summer wardrobe…

Summer Face Ritual

If you take a look at my Five-Minute Makeup, you’ll notice that my everyday face ritual isn’t all that complicated. I strive to make my best features shine and to hide any blemishes with good-quality products (yes, that includes taking years to find the best cream for my face, which happens to be Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light). In the summertime, my…

The Bier Markt Experience

I’ve only ever heard good things about Bier Markt, so when I was given the opportunity to try it during my recent stay in Toronto, I was pretty excited. (Okay, maybe more than excited: I might have dreamed about what I’d be eating and grabbing off of their menu). What had me even more intrigued was that I was invited for a…

Expert Q&A: Duc de Lorraine

I think we may all know by now that I have an extreme sweet-tooth. So, I’d probably be stating the obvious when I say that the cake is one of the wedding elements I’m most excited about. What makes it even more exciting is that it’s going to be custom-made by the geniuses at my favorite French bakery, Duc de Lorraine. We’ve planned for tiers…

Wedding Words

With our wedding only 3 months away, everyone has been checking up on me, making sure that I’ve kept my sanity and that the DIY crafts haven’t taken over our entire living space. Joe always mentions how I’ve probably been dreaming about this day since I was a little girl. He’s totally right but a lot of the attention has been…

5-Minute Makeup

When it comes to makeup, I’m all about a natural, glowing look. I love cosmetics as much as the next girly-girl, but just because I have a more minimal approach to my application, doesn’t mean I skip out on shopping frenzies at Sephora. Time is extremely valuable, and with my job and the errands I constantly have to run, I still want to…

Wedding Words: The Countdown Begins

The countdown begins: do I hear wedding bells? Yes, yes I do. When I was a little girl, I always tried to make the summer season last as long as possible. Growing up in Montreal, Canada, all the neighborhood kids knew to never take the warmer days for granted. We’d spend play dates outdoors, basking in the sunshine’s rays from the early morning…

Bruschetta Bites

Now that the weather’s warmer, I’ve transitioned to fresh salads and refreshing iced teas as my choice of main meals. While I’ll always be a steak and mashed potato type-of-girl, there’s just something about a colorful plate of leafs, vegetables, and dressing that make me feel like it’s finally summer. To add a bit of change to my “salad routine,”…

Crew-Neck Pullover

I was so excited when I stumbled upon this sweater from Abercrombie & Fitch. There was something about its simple crew-neck and statement logo that brought me back to my childhood. Back in my “school yard” days, I would have probably sported a similar pullover with the most embarrassing jogging pants to match. However, now, my faux-leather leggings do the trick and I…

Birthday Tiramisu

Whenever I make #dessertoftheweek, I always try to take both mine and Joe’s tastes into consideration. I’ve been putting off making tiramisu for awhile simply because Joe isn’t a huge fan. Recently, my mom taught me her recipe and I’ve been craving it ever since. Joe isn’t much of a baker. For my upcoming birthday, he expressed that he was having trouble deciding on what dessert to serve. To…
