Boutique Monroe in Les Cours Mont Royal

If you have been following my blog from the beginning you know the exact idea behind my blog : to display affordable Fashion and Beauty mixed with high-end pieces for any women, because luxury is the confidence you project whether you are a size 0 or a size 10. 

Last week, I found a boutique in the Les Cours Mont Royal that kinda has the same motto. Boutique Monroe is a boutique that carries clothes for a women from a size 8 to a size 18, don't be fooled, in Canada, an average women is a size 10. This boutique is not considered a plus size boutique but more of a boutique for the average Canadian women and the Les Cours Mont Royal were very proud to add them to their list of amazing vendors. 

Many of you know that I am not a regular size 0 nor am I "plus-sized" (a word I don't quite like) but more of a size 8-10 and the reason why I started this blog is to display that it's all about the way you dress your body, no matter your size. You can do anything and look as sexy but you need to enhance and display the right spots.
Boutique Monroe carries gorgeous designers such as "Stop Sharing", "NYDJ" and the Montreal-based brand "Sosiesosie". 

Once you enter the shop, you can really see that the pieces were carefully chosen and that they all mesh well together.

Boutique Monroe is located in the ever-so-growing Les Cours Mont Royal. What I like the most about Les Cours Mont Royal is that they really gathered gems of boutiques, where you can find really affordable and unique pieces.

Adopting the fall season with Burberry

When fall arrives, it's time to switch up the perfume and the lip colours and that's my favorite part of entering a new season. We switch up to a thicker scent and darker colours and enjoy layering our knits and drinking our Chaï lattes.

This year, I couldn't be more excited for fall to come in order to rock the bold red lip and the deep red lip. 
I have expressed many times on my blog my love for the Burberry makeup brand but I cannot stress it enough. From the eyeshadows, to the blushes, to the lip colours, it's definitely a brand that needs to be discovered.

I have always worn Burberry perfumes and this time, it's was the moment to switch up and the perfect campaign dropped in my inbox, the My Burberry campaign for the My Burberry scent. The scent is reminiscent of a European garden filled with Sweet Pea, Bergamot, Geranium and Patchouli amongst many others. 

Furthermore, let's take a minute to enjoy these lipsticks. These Burberry Lip Velvet's in #310 Military Red and #311 Bright Poppy, I know will be in constant rotation this fall with a simple winged-liner look. 

There's just something to a nice deep red lip for fall ! 

Do you switch up your products for fall ?!


Prepping for Winter at PointZero

Last month, I paid a little visit at the gorgeous PointZero offices to have a nice glance at the upcoming seasons new offerings. The place was filled from the latest coats from the Point Zero brand and the sister brand Nicole Benisti Signature Collection. It was so hard to choose a favorite but the blue one definitely had a little extra love from me. Let me tell you it was hard to keep a thick winter coat on in the middle of the summer but we always want what we can't have and I was craving a nice winter storm in the middle of August ! Did I really just say that ?! 

Point Zero coats will keep you warm for the crazy winter that's about to drop of us that's for sure. You can go for a more classic look or a sportier look, the Point Zero brand has some for everybody in the family, even the little ones ;)

Make sure to check out the latest from the Point Zero family and keep your eyes pealed for my final choice.


FMD Collections

Last month, I had the chance to attend the first viewing of the FMD Collections, an event that was part of the pre-opening of the FMD Festival in Montreal. The ever so gorgeous Garance Doré chose 6 Quebec designers and they displayed they're gorgeous collections. The chosen few were Ying Yao, Travis Taddeo, Mylene B, Niapsou Design, Ève Gravel and UNTTLD

 I literally wanted every piece from the Travis Taddeo collection, all black and white, my current lust.

Rosegold Nike for NYFW

For the 3rd day of New York Fashion Week, I decided to play it comfy. I knew it was going to be a long day of running from one show to another, so the RoseGold Nikes were the perfect addition to this all blue outfit. The outfit gave a very girly vibe and the kicks roughed it up by keeping it in the pastels. 
 Blouse OldNavy | Skirt 424 Fifth | Kicks Nike | Necklace H&M | Handbag Zara 

This year, I attended the RewardStyle party which was filled with gorgeous bloggers from all around the world. This ultimate blogger party was at The Empire Hotel where we had a gorgeous view on the Lincoln Center, our playground for the week. I had a chance to chat with the forever gorgeous Coco Rocha and sneak in a little picture ;p

Taking care of my hair with Kérastase

If you have been reading my blog for a while you must know that I have a ton of hair on my head. If you notice, I have my hair in a bun a lot of times and that's because my hair is WORK and these days I don't have the patience for it. Kérastase sort of entered my life at the perfect moment, it was meant to be.
Kérastase offers a wide range of hair products for all hair types and let's not lie, it is a bit expensive but once in a while it's worth it. I fell upon the Kérastase Oléo-Curl range a couple of weeks ago and it changed the texture of my hair. I had used this line a couple of years ago but was always to lazy to go to the salon to purchase them, now, they are more accessible. 

The Kérastase Oléo-Curl line really tamed my locks and created gorgeous curls that are not filled with frizz, my hair feels so soft and manageable. After washing my hair with the Kérastase Oléo-Curl Shampoo and applying the Kérastase Oléo-Curl Intensif Mask, I add a pea-size of the Kérastase Curl definition Cream and I air dry my air. In the morning, I will pass a flatiron on really wild sections of my hair and I'm ready. 

This year Kérastase is celebrating it's 50 years of the brand, here are the top 10 cult products from Kérastase.
You should definitely treat yourself and try out the Kérastase brand, your hair will thank you for it! 


Ready for a bath with Lush

Bath time or shower time in the fall or autumn is always much more appreciated. We tend to stay longer and enjoy the time but why not add some Lush products to make the time well spent.

A) Parsley Porridge soap : This herbal soap is perfect for this fall temperature, leaves the skin smelling so good, smooth and clean.

B) D'Fluff shaving soap : A strawberry and cocoa shaving cream that leaves your skin so smooth and smelling like a fresh batch of berries.

C) Granny Takes a dip bath balm : I laughed so hard when I saw the name of this bath balm, so funny ;p Once in a while, it's nice to relax and to spend some alone time and prepare a bath.

D) Mangnificient soap : A mango and mandarin soap that invades your washroom when you take a shower.

Lush is the perfect place to buy a gift for a friend, a niece or a cousin, you can find absolutely anything from shower gels to bath bombs to soap and tell me...who doesn't like a good bath ;p


The Target Show for the FMD Festival

If you have been following my blog for a while now, you already know my love for finding little treasures at Target Canada. Last month, during the FMD festival in Montreal, I had the pleasure of attending a private party for Target's launch of the Fall 2014 collection on the terrace of the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The trusty boy aka photographer had access to the photographers pit for the fashion show and snapped gorgeous pics of the latest trends to hit the Target Canada shelves in the upcoming months.
 And the gorgeous AltazurraForTarget Collection that hit stores this Sunday the 14th of September.
I casually stopped by Target this Sunday to check out the AltazurraForTarget Collection and picked up one piece of the collection, the famous booties. 

All in all, you can really find gorgeous gems at Target Canada, it's really worth the browse.

White Combo

Top JoeFresh | Trousers Target | Sandals Zara | Handbag Longchamp

This day was the funniest by far. So, I was casually working at my office (at my old job) minding my own business, ready for lunch, quick stop at the ladies room, when my pants decided to stop cooperating and the zipper got majorly stuck and broke.

Panic mode...Nothing was helping. Thankfully, I use to work downtown, so a mall was close by. I casually walked to the mall with the moral support of my coworkers and got to Target, where Target saved me with these navy trousers.

At the end of the day, I loved the pants so much that we decided to shoot a fashion look in the old port. 
Great ending to a crazy story ;)

Zimmermann S/S 2015 at NYFW

Unfortunately, this year because of my new job (love my job ;p) I got to New York Fashion Week for the 2nd day only but none the less, I got to see many fabulous shows. 
My first stop was at Zimmermann S/S 2015 at the fabulous Lincoln Center. 
I was lucky enough to have an amazing seat where I could snap great photos of the looks.
This metallic number was everything. The perfect look for that European getaway next summer.
The flowyness of these dresses ! 
Finally, the light khaki caught my heart ! 

The Zimmermann S/S 2015 collection was filled with different types of metallics, flowyness and the khaki trend which created a chic holiday vibe for our Summer 2015 trips.

You can now shop my favourite Zimmermann pieces :)
