2017 Orford Music Festival

For many of us, summer means vacation, but for those who have to work most of the summer and still want to go on mini getaways, I suggest you check out the Orford Music Festival. I always enjoy a nice dinner followed by some form of entertainment, like the AML dinner-cruises that I wrote about here. That's why I agreed to attend the opening concert of the ...

A Grey Goose summer terrace at Sea Salt & Ceviche

Last week, I was invited to a very chic picnic with Grey Goose Vodka. Inspired by the French Riviera, we sipped on classic vodka martinis (with a twist of lemon) and enjoyed fresh-shucked oysters in the garden at the Field & Stream Club in Dorval. The cocktail was followed by a traditional French picnic on blue ...

Urban Dinner Cruises with AML

In June, I was invited to go on a cruise with AML Cruises for their Red Carpet Urban Dinner Cruise. This unforgettable evening was truly impressive. As soon as we arrived at the Alexandre Quay, we were welcomed like celebrities, with a red carpet and very flexible nautical acrobats.(My friend, Eve Martel who has the blog Tellement Swell also wore the ...

Grand Prix Activities – From a Little to a Luxe

Grand Prix, for me, is all about the parties and the excuse to go all glam over the course of an entire weekend. I started attending F1 parties 5 years ago when the Ritz-Carlton first invited me to their prestigious Grand Prix party. Knowing that this year’s event at the Ritz is beyond most people’s ...

Ali has an eye for coffee and great places to find your caffeine fix which led him to launch the Instagram account @mtlcafecrawl ...

Libertine Bakehouse

If Marie Antoinette and Freddy Mercury had a love child, he could’ve very well been as quirky and cute as British-born pastry chef Nick Kemball. Nick recently opened Libertine Bakehouse, a refreshingly unassuming and unconventional pastry shop on Atwater Avenue in Saint-Henri. I had first seen Nick’s pastries on Instagram and popped in one day ...

Paris Explorations

Paris is always a good idea. That was my thought when I suggested to my Mom that we take a trip to Europe and start with Paris. We’d already had a mother-daughter trip to France in 2009 and I felt we were long overdue for another visit. I booked us a quaint apartment on the ...

Shaughnessy Café

It took me some time to find the best coffee shops around my neighbourhood. When I heard about Shaughnessy Café, back in February, I made a point of finding it early one morning with Dapper. The friendly barista, Julien served me my macchiato that day and I've gone back a few times for the minimalist decor, great ...

A Dog’s Purpose

Everyone knows how much I love my dog, but some may not know why I have a dog. When I moved to Montreal 16 years ago, my biological clock kicked in. I knew I wasn’t ready to have a child, but then I started noticing other young women in my neighbourhood with their dogs and ...
