OOTD: Mixing Old and New

I love mixing new and vintage pieces for a truly unique look. This outfit is composed of: a vintage Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche blouse that I found at a friend's clothing swap, a pleated ZARA skirt that I purchased in the fall, VINCE ankle boots and Bauble Bar tassel earrings, both purchased at Holt ...

My Top Five Montreal Restaurants of 2016

I honestly don’t eat out often enough. 2016 was a particularly bad year for me as far as restaurant outings go because I just didn’t have the budget for it after we bought our house (bye, bye disposable income!), but there will always be a reason to celebrate and therefore, I’d like to believe that ...

A classy stroller to make a maternal statement when walking the city streets, a cute and cuddly outfit for showing off the offspring, a practical-but-not-obviously-a-baby bag to keep all the necessary accoutrements organized, a modern monitor to ...
