A Lil Bit of Both; Bondi Beach and Wilson’s Prom

G’day from the other siiiiide; I’m back up from down under and fighting jet lag like a champ by browsing the billions – only a slight exaggeration – of photos from my trip to the land of Oz. Didn’t see any emerald cities or yellow brick roads, but instead tons of sandy beaches, cuddly marsupials and ridiculously… Read more »

Transitional Trench

Winter is here…! Alas, only recently. Before the overly generous snowfall a couple weeks ago, ‘winter’ was a series of ridiculously hot days and while I was enjoying the balmy weather, getting ready in the morning was always accompanied by the irritating “what do I wear?” chant playing on repeat in my head. I’ve been more than ready to… Read more »

the blues

I know what you’re all thinking; have you seen the weather outside? A sleeveless summer dress and no tights?? I guess I’ve been away from Montreal for too long because somehow I forgot that our Fall/Winter season starts in September. Seriously, Summer didn’t even say goodbye, it just left. Rude. Anyways, due to this major lapse… Read more »

Festival-Friendly

It’s that magical time of year again! Rock Werchter kicked it off with a bang, Tomorrowland is coming to a close, Osheaga is happening and everyone is stocking up on floral headbands and bejewelling their bodies; it’s festival season babes! In about a week I head to Vancouver to visit my boyfriend, and he got us tickets to… Read more »

Island Life

So I’ve been back in Brussels for about a week now, and the rainy days aren’t really helping my Madeira-withdrawals. I’ve finally sorted through the hundreds (not even exaggerating) of photos from my trip last week, and was oohing and ahhing so much that I had to share some with you guys. From the rainforest-like park in the… Read more »

One of the best things The best thing about having sisters is the “what’s mine is yours” attitude we adopt when it comes to raiding each other’s closets; and I have two, which means double the outfit ops. On our last day in Lisbon, Danie and I played musical chairs with our clothes and now I’m sort… Read more »

back to basics | back to black

I love clothes; I love dresses and skirts, high heeled boots and mules and oversized bags and blazers. However, dressing way way up isn’t the most practical way to enjoy travelling as much as I do. This is where compromise comes in; I can wear my LBD, but it has to be casual, not fancy. I… Read more »

Kyoto

Who doesn’t love sushi? Okay lots of people don’t, but those guys are missing out – hey, more for me! Of course when in Portugal we stuck to the classic Mediterranean diet of octopus in vinaigrette sauce, grilled sea bass and were spoilt with traditional Madeira wine and Poncha (a deadly, what-happened-last-night kind of drink),… Read more »

Stripes²

I’m not usually a big fan of matchy-matchy dressing, but in this case I say double the stripes, double the fun. I’m still loving neck scarves for summer accessorizing and this red, white and blue one may be very Americana (am I too late for 4th of July?), but as long as I don’t pair… Read more »

Dinner with a View

In my books, there is no vacation without sun, sea and authentic cooking. Sol e Mar (Sun and Sea), a quaint little restaurant tucked away along the coast of Paul Do Mar stays true to its name by offering all three of these treats to its diners. Last night we feasted on the freshest seafood you… Read more »
