We celebrated Vday last weekend with my three valentines, going to a super fun bowling night with friends, and after a few hours there, I thought it was about time that I go back to my regular programming and do an Ode to Life, this time dedicated to all my valentines. 

Wishing you the sweetest month of the year,



Dear Galentines,
Thank you for never taking away the last sip of our Bloody Caesars and for all the love.

Dear Husband of mine,
I heart you, when you are cranky some mornings and when we share the most precious moments together. Thank you for being the best Valentine.

Dear green juices every morning,
You made me love mornings, and trust me, I hated them with all my heart.

Dear Hollandaise sauce that I finally cooked last week,
HOW come you are pure butter? I cry.

Dear Fiddle leaf-fig tree,
Bare with me my friend, I swear winter is almost over.

Dear Zara sales madness,
Please stop this. My credit line is calling me right now.

Dear Spring that I can't wait to see,
I'm so going to soak up every minute of it, and I can't wait to have you here already

Dear Instant Pot I just discovered,
OMG goodness gracious!!!!! you are the real future.

Dear heartburn,
How come you are back bro? NO.

Dear Yoga,
I'm such a newbie and I know I suck big time. I promise I'll work hard k?

Dear cheese,
Please tell life I can't be lactose intolerant, cuz I can't survive without you.

Dear Quebec City,
I adored spending a day in your beautiful Ice Hotel. Who am I kidding? Of course I couldn't sleep there.

Dear weight watchers,
Let's see how long I can do this. At least, I can live off corn and fruits. #kidding

Dear Mexican floors,
Please move to Montreal?

Dear artic temperatures,
You guys are CRUEL. Yes, it's not even funny.

Dear Jen Gotch,
Can we meet in real life, sip some bulletproof coffee and be merry? I swear we can be besties.

Dear Olivia,
I adore how bossy you've become with all of us and how you're so little and such a boss. GIRL POWER my baby girl, shine bright!

We visited Bowling G Plus

After trying a cereal bar in New York City a few years back, I only wished to have this concept in Montreal, and bam! Barley happened as the first cereal bar in the city.
My first visit (a solo one) was a Tuesday morning, to do some work and sip a good coffee. This place isn't just a cereal bar, it's a coffee shop, also a workspace where you can rent a room if you have a meeting or a private event, a restaurant that serves delicious smoothie bowls, and a marketing agency that I had the pleasure to meet that day.
let's be honest, even if you are 30 or 2 like my little Olivia, having a cereal bowl doesn't get old, right?
Please don't tell my kids I went here, and they weren't part of the plan, deal?


The menu options are quite amazing, and the pretty brekkie you see at the beginning of this post is Le Safari smoothie bowl, a mix of mango, pineapple, banana, greek yogurt, coconut milk and a homemade honey almond granola. If you feel like doing a healthy breakfast, They serve smoothie bowls, fruit parfaits, chia bowls and endless options of cereals with regular or premium milk.

I tried every single house granola (4 in total) and my very favourite was honey almond that you need to have and take home, yesss! They sell them!
Curious about the other granolas, right?
Here's a sneak peak:
Spicy Ginger
Green Hemp
Double Chocolate

Arrived here for lunch plans? not to panic! Salads and Toasts all homemade, with local ingredients are available as well.
The interiors here are absolutely stunning! 
Gimme all the granola, world.

... and yes, I freaking adore places with details like this one.
WIN.
