The Weekend Edit Vol. 65

13.3.16


Ah Sunday, both a magical day of rest and relaxation, but also a dark omen of the impending work week ahead. It's a funny feeling because you wake up feeling like you still have the entire weekend ahead of you, and then before you know it, 3pm hits and the minutes until Monday start dwindling away at an alarming rate.

The good thing? Spring definitely seems to be on its way early this year! It's been a gorgeous and sunny all weekend, and I took advantage of what is most likely the last of the ski season. Warm temps also mean that sugar shack season is kicking into full gear here in the Montreal area. If you're in Montreal, be sure to check out Chef a L'Erable at Scena. A modern sugar shack in the city, that I had the pleasure of checking out last Sunday for brunch (my thoughts coming to Julius & Valentina soon).

How have you been spending your weekend? Has the weather been equally as gorgeous in your area? In case you're stuck inside, I've rounded up a couple of links for you to check out this afternoon:

I am totally on the Alicia Vikander style train right now, and Man Repeller has run through her style for us so that we can emanate this scandinavian beauty's style too!

Also from Man Repeller, the benefits of drinking hot lemon water. I know I won't be able to give up my morning coffee, but I may try this out before I head off the work in the morning!

Im a big fan of all asian food (my bestie often says that I was probably asian in a former life), and I'm on a big bibimbap kick lately. I used this recipe and tried it myself, and it turned out great!

As a frequent carry-on only traveller, I hate to overpack. Use these tips to wash clothes in the sink so that you don't try to cram that extra top in there ;)

The top secrets of women who always look put together. Yes, yes, and yes!

Got this flowy, cropped blouse in white, and really want all of other colours now! Also, basically everything from Aritzia's spring offerings.

Happy Weekend!

Meet Matte from Nudestix!

4.3.16




Hey girl, meet matte, the newest launch from Nudestix! I love a good matte lip, so I was super excited to hear about the new Intense Matte Lip & Cheek Pencils from Nudestix. I’m already a big fan of their regular Lip & Cheek pencils (I have a Mystic pencil lying around pretty much everywhere. Purse, desk, travel bag, yup, everywhere), and the lovely girls over at Nudestix were kind enough to send me two shades from the new launch*. I loved them so much that I’ve bought two more shades since! Keep reading for more.

En Route Essentials - Formula X Manicure On The Go!

1.3.16


I have a love-hate relationship with painting my nails: I absolutely loathe doing it, but I love how it can make any outfit look a little more polished. Also, I only remember to paint my nails before a business trip, like, 10 minutes before my cab comes to pick me up. Yup, imagine me trying to take my credit card out to pay fare, with freshly painted nails. Not a pretty sight. And if I do it in advance? Murphy's Law will have it that it chips the same day and then drives me nuts. But I think I've found a solution! I came across these adorable, mini Formula X sets in Sephora one day, and they're a great solution to the on-the-go mani!
