Bahamas Beachside Wedding


We got married on the infamous 7.7.07 – us and thousands of other couples – on a sultry & muggy Montréal day at the Ritz Carlton in front of a small gathering (of 60) of our family and closest friends… and it was perfectly imperfect!

The florist delivered the flowers the night before and they were put in the fridge, where my bouquet froze as it was placed on the top shelf. During the reception, the chocolate fountain went nuts and sprayed chocolate all over the table and flowers around it.

That being said, our day was memorable and to this day remains one that I cherish dearly. Still, there is a small part of me that wishes that we had gotten married on an island, our feet buried in the sand and our hair tousled by the sea air.

‘Tis the seas on to get hitched! So if saying: “I do” is on your to do list this summer, let these beach wedding inspiration be an inspiration but let me also send you love and kisses on what promises to be a day to be remembered.

Winter Woodland Wedding + a Contest



‘Tis the season and what better way to kick off my annal Holiday inspiration advent calendar than with a winter woodland wedding! ‘Tis the time when I have this crazy idea to write one post a day for 25 days … in case you missed it last year.

Winter weddings have an extra layer of charm, as it is the time of year most conducive to woodsy settings, jewel toned hues… especially deep reds & and snowy white for a added touch of romance. So, I’ll let you go ahead and get yourself a warm cup of cocoa – or mulled wine – in order to fully enjoy this Oh so lovely wedding.

Happy December lovelies!

Monday Musing: Giving Thanks


I am sorry I have been M.I.A. this past week, I had an epic migraine that lasted me a good 4 days. So now that it has finally subsided and that I can think again, I thought that the time would be just right to give thanks.

Next Monday, on the 13th, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving (I live in Canada lovelies, in case you were still wondering). I try to be thankful all year round, but as is Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving is like an extra shot of love in my already very strong non-fat peppermint moka latte, extra hot, extra foam. I have a LOT to be thankful for this year:

  • My family, always and forever
  • My health, strong and steady, despite the occasional “can’t think straight… or at all for that matter” headaches. But as my grandma used to say: ” If it hurts, it means you have one.” Oh I love you Gram’s!
  • The third season of my TV show being the best one and most creative one yet. ( I have completed 65 shows so far… 65! Just thinking about it I can’t believe it)
  • Our forever house which has finally given us a place to call home. I loved my previous bohemian lifestyle, moving every other year or so, but I have to say that it feels nice to have a real home where to make lasting memories.
  • My little thriving company, who keeps growing and who found its voice and its own cool vibe
  • & of course, you all who have made my humble and beloved blog a destination you like to come to. I can’t tell you enough how blogging, over the past 6 years, has helped me grow both personally and professionally.


So, in order to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend, I thought I’d leave you with a lovely Fall tablescape, clad in creme and gold.

Have a great week lovelies
