Sooooo winter is over. Well, at least by the calendar. Unfortunately it's still snowing here in Montreal, but that's an unhappy subject I would rather not discuss.
An upside is that the store are having amazing sales before putting their new collection on the floor! Here are my finds :)
Thanks for watching!

So apparently it was supposed to be the first day of spring last week... well, we were lucky enough to receive another 4 inches of snow in Montreal. Thank you so much for that thoughtful welcome gift, Mother Nature.
SAID NO ONE. EVER.
Look at me sitting on this poor statue of a cow, its body buried midway in the snow. I think that gives you a little insight as to how much snow is still left to be melted. Le sigh... I don't think I'm ever going to get used to a six month long winter.
On a happier note, this shoot was super fun because I finally met up with Camille again! The last time we saw each other was last... I think November? We mutually agreed that the cause for this absence was blogger hibernation during the winter. I mean, I don't think it's crucial to post an outfit wearing a parka and uggs. No one would appreciate that. We caught up, drinking persian tea at my new favorite cafe, called Cafe Aunja. A short vlog video will be uploaded soon on my Youtube channel. :)
For my Canadian readers, I have more good news! The clothing brand, Sanctuary, recently launched in Canada. For now, the collection is available in local boutiques. I got to check out their new collection at the launch event, and I fell in love with the neutral color palette and easy to wear styles. I especially loved their matching crop top + skirt combinations, as it can be worn from day to night. Follow them on instagram @sanctuarycanada
In Montreal, Sanctuary Clothing will be available at the following stores:
Olam, Mimi & Coco, Billie, and Delano Designs
Hope you guys are having a great week, and enjoying REAL spring weather!

During my spring break, I spent the week at my parent's house in Atlanta. Having a break from the snow and freezing temps. of Montreal is a vacation in of itself. I took advantage of this time to create a look book video of some spring outfit ideas! Garage sent me some items, and I got to shop for some pieces of my own to style. Hope you guys like the looks.
This DIY is by far the most popular post on my blog, so I decided it would be helpful to create a video tutorial!
Hope I'm explaining the steps clearly... haha

VICTORY IS MINE! (imagine me shouting this as I pretend to like snow in the last picture^^)
After searching around for a year (yes, a whole YEAR) for the perfect leopard coat, I finally found this one from Jollychic.com ... Why did it take me a whole year to commit? After all, it is just a coat, right? Well, yes and no. I found it quite hard to find a leopard coat with the right length, the right color tone, and level of furriness. The one from Zara was too long, the one from Asos was an odd dark leopard, and the one from Forever 21 had a hood with ears on it. (I think I graduated eared-hoods when I was six, thank you very much) So when I found this one online, it was a shopping eureka moment. The shipping kind of took a long time, so when it came in the mail, it felt like a surprise because I almost forgot I ordered it. At first sight, even I was a little intimidated by the bold print. But the more I wear it, that exact boldness is growing on me. Plus, it's extremely warm!
You probably noticed the random lay out of the pictures, because there are two different backgrounds. Well, my sister and I took these pictures on our way to lunch, and I think it would be a blogger sin to pass by a PINK HOUSE without taking outfit pictures in front of it. And you gotta admit, the leopard print against the pink wall is a match made in a blogger's heaven.
