This weekend we had an overdose of green, nature and lots of sun. I got to love summer!
We took a day off from the city and went up north near St-Sauveur.

Highlights of the weekend:

- all-day-long pool day
- a delish brunch on Sunday morning included in our hotel night, all you can eat - heaven!
- lots of kisses and baby rolls, yay (:
- picnic in the park, just give me all the Vitamin D world!
- I felt a caribe weather, just missing our perfect beaches, *sniff*
- Olivia is eating solids, (she's so big, omg) and so far, Bananas and Peas aren't in her VIP list
- Red was my thing this weekend as you can see
- Splash parks, here we go!


xoxo

Big brother

When I was pregnant I heard from lots of friends some pretty scary stories about siblings and I have to confess I was kinda terrified. I had a difficult pregnancy with Olivia (gestational diabetes, lots of morning sickness, headaches, anything you can imagine) and I couldn't help wondering if it was going to be the same case with my toddler as soon as they meet. 


The day came and they finally met. 5 months later, I have to honestly say Nico is a true big brother to his baby sister Olivia. I didn't experience that jealousy stage everybody told me (and keep asking about). He's super proud of his little "baby" as he calls her in front of his friends.

He usually wakes up in the morning and the first thing he says is "Where's Olivia mama?" and then, my heart just melts.  He wants to feed her, builds lego spaceships for her and talks to her about his day at daycare (so darn cute!).

 I'm so proud of this two already and I haven't even seen anything yet. 

Love you my sweet angels, with all my heart. 







Flowers and Coffee

On my way back home today I just wanted to see lots and lots of flowers (Dragon Flowers in Bernard was my inspiration of course) welcome weekend!

I visited a brand new trendy coffee shop near Mile end, Le Butterblume.

An impressive and super bright space with a super cool concept in the city, a coffee shop, restaurant, boutique and a cute flower arrangement corner.

The menu is simple but yet on point. They offer Brunch on weekends, weekday breakfasts, lunch and soon (yay for us!) we'll be able to enjoy some cocktails with these lovely menu options.  I only had a chance to take a small coffee but I can't wait to come back for the full menu experience.

My favourite part?
Make your own bouquet with the most beautiful flowers (:

Neon signs? I love you Butterblume!

I'm addicted to find cool and different watches for a very long time now. Today I wanted to share with you my new fav watch, Jord.
This watch is entirely made of wood, awesome right? This model that I loved, part of the Frankie series, is incredibly light and well-designed and I can't stop wearing it.

Frankie series has other 5 beautiful colours, my personal favourite is a funky purpleheart and plum, working super well with many of my outfits. I had never ever seen or used a wood watch before so discovering this brand was a dream!
Check the women's collection and men's collection, they have so many lovely options you'll want them all in your life ASAP (:

These watches are all handcrafted from natural, sustainable and untreated wood with a 12 month warranty and a scratch-proof glass (perfect for busy moms like me! yay!)  





I'm thrilled I'll be matching this watch with my entire closet, #slay!

Orale, Socialito!

Mexican cuisine is kinda the new big deal in Montreal. We visited Socialito, a trendy and super cool new spot near Mile end.
I was impressed with all the little details of this place and you can feel you are actually eating in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

You'll love the tropical vibes, the salsa and merengue playing and a lovely staff, super dedicated explaining the menu and the overall experience here at Socialito.

The menu is super complete (fish, steak, veggie and pork are part of their options). Loved how the concept is based in "small plates" to share.  We had 3 different tacos including al pastor, carnitas, steak and some queso fundido with chorizo and tortillas.

Man, I can't believe I didn't have their churros and the avocado spring rolls.
Next time Socialito!



omg to this girl. She's seriously driving me insane!




my hubby (aka. my Instagram husband) finds always the best locations for my ootd.
The steak taco was my favourite. Impeccable and super tasty with some crispy onions and a delish chimichurri on top.
