I came across this wonderful (free) app yesterday and couldn't help but clicking "install" right away. As the weather gets cooler, I always turn to my silk scarves to add some much needed colour to my outfits. I display my collection on the back of my bedroom door, loosely knotted to a set of hooks:
J'ai trouvé cette merveilleuse application (gratuite) hier et j'ai immédiatement cliqué "install". Quand le temps se refroidit, j'utilise mes foulards de soie pour ajouter un peu de couleur à mes tenues. J'affiche ma collection sur la porte de ma chambre, attaché à crochets:
|Silk scarves collected from various second hand stores, family members, vacations, etc.|
It happens far too often that I simply forget to slip one of these pretty pieces off their rack to tie around my neck as I head out in the morning. After watching the short and sweet video below, I quickly began to pair scarves with various outfits and jackets. I would definitely recommend a watch, and for those apple users out there, take note of the simple yet sophisticated methods of "knotting" featured in the classy new app by Hermès.
J'oublie souvent de porter une de mes belles foulards quand je sorte au matin. Après avoir regardé cet petit video au dessous, j'ai commencé à assortir foulards avec des tenues. Je recommanderais de regarder, et pour les iGens (lol) noter les façons simples de "nouer" présenté dans cette nouvelle application par Hermès.

|The view from behind some trees of Port Hercule in Monaco.|
Monaco is a (rather petit) country of opulent living. Every square foot is looked after, to ensure a perfect getaway for the world's top tier.
Monaco est un pays (plutôt petit) de vie opulent. Chaque pied carré est maintenue propre, pour assurer une escapade idéale pour le Tout-Paris.

|The beach view from Castle Hill, Nice|
Les photos que j'ai prises autour de Castle Hill ont été mon background depuis que je suis rentré chez moi. Le soleil a aidé à crée des images éblouissant, tandis que l'air froid a laissé la plage et les rues pas bondé.

Nail polish strips are an interesting concept and have been all the rage this past year. Some of the most popular styles are by Sally hansen, which come sealed and apply thinner than the leading brands. The Sally Hansen finish is most similar to real nail polish as opposed to a sticker appearance on top of the nail.

Here is a quick review of two Revlon products I've enjoyed in the past little while.

This lipstick claims to stay all day with a suede finish- not matte, not shiny...

With the warm summer weather quickly approaching, I decided to post a flashback to the so-called "most wonderful time of the year"...

Just around Christmas, we celebrated with a big family dinner at The Old Mill in Toronto...

There is no better way to start off the weekend than going out for Saturday brunch with fantastic company. Some of my fellow French conversation class ladies and I visited Celestin on Mount Pleasant Road in Toronto last weekend.
Il n'y a pas de meilleure façon de commencer le week-end que d'aller pour le samedi brunch avec des gens fantastiques. Nous avons visité Celestin sur Mount Pleasant Road, à Toronto la semaine dernière.

Last week I went on an early morning shopping trip to the Eatons Centre, with the beautiful Akkila visiting from uni in Ottawa. My day started off very well; I gracefully woke up before my alarm. Unless I'm having a bad dream, this never happens. So everything was all rainbows and flowers, until I was sitting on the subway and looked into my bag...
Yes, the battery decided to stay in my wall instead of joining us on our journey. Greaaaatttttt. iPhone pics and an extra few pounds to lug around. Ahh c'est dommage...
