The Weekend Edit Vol. 48


What a week! A bit of a whirlwind to be honest, and it definitely felt like there were 2 Mondays.

I got to attend a media launch event for a new restaurant on Monday evening with the wonderful Ariane! Open bar + open seafood bar. Nuff said! I mean just look at the size of that shrimp in the photo above. Size of my head! DOCA is located in up and coming Griffintown in Montreal, and based on what I tasted on Monday, you should definitely check it out.

I spoiled myself with another night out on Tuesday to celebrate a colleague's birthday at Tuck Shop. It's quickly becoming my favourite fancy meal out (bonus points for being only a 10 minute walk from my place!). Wednesday was Canada Day, and it was cold and rainy and miserable. Boo! Which definitely made Thursday feel like a 2nd Monday. At least the coffee machine came back to work from it's 3 week hiatus on Thursday! The office was getting dangerously close to a mutiny...

I'm now spending my weekend in the sun at the cottage. Just finished Heads in Beds, and let me tell you it was hilarious! I probably didn't need to learn that much about the hospitality industry, considering the amount of travel I've done recently, but it was a great read and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get a laugh out of their next book.

Summer brings lots of fireworks to Montreal with the international firework competition, and Photojojo has some great tips to shooting fireworks.

On a similar note, the gals over at A Beautiful Mess have some great tips for light painting with sparklers.

Speaking of photography, I have the itch to buy the Sony RX100 for my travels, especially after reading this very honest review. I find I don't pack my camera enough for my short business trips, and this is super small and compact. Just trying to decide whether or not the Mark ii is sufficient, or if I need to dole out the extra for the Mark iii.....hmmmm...

I think I've finally hit my quarter life crisis. Netflix on a Friday night anyone?!?

Total outfit envy for Joelle's fabulous beach look!

In case you missed anything on Love. Loft. Life. this week:
Melt-proof summer makeup // SPF school

In exciting news, it's just over a month until I leave on summer holiday to Hawaii! Considering the amount of travel I've done recently, I've decided to start a fun series over on Instagram. Every day for the 30 days prior to take off, I'm going to post a different travel tip, and then round them up weekly here on the blog. Get ready for #LLL30DaysOfTravel!
